Dragons wallow in massive hoards of wealth, known to the ounce. Ponies don't really have a need for piles of bits and coins. They'd be awfully uncomfortable to lay on, I'd imagine. Not to mention hard to walk through. And gems are pretty pointy, you wouldn't want one poking into hoof. So, maybe a hoarding pony is a little out of the question. Unless they're hoarding something like sweaters, or kittens. Actually... that'd be adorable.
This week we have many ponies who have, for better or worse, struck it rich. Giant gems and rich geodes, greedy sneaks and pictures of love to show what true wealth really is. So take a moment to find your center, look not with greed or jealousy, lest a terrible Dragon Sickness take you, and sneak a peek at riches beyond imagining in this week's gallery.

A pony striking it rich When I saw the prompt, the first thing I thought of was someone becoming a new parent. Then I thought of Twilight, the character whose days of beginning motherhood would be the most stressful. Having a baby throws everything orderly about life right out the window. Twilight, with her OCD, perfectionism and tendency to panic attacks would be blindsided by motherhood. I can see her as the mom that has read every book there is on every child-rearing subject. If any of you watched the TV show House, I think it would be like when Cuddy is first getting used to her adopted daughter and pulls a used diaper out of her purse when the child services guy drops by for a visit. But then, in one of the rare quiet moments, when she feels the warmth of her daughter against her and watches her chest rise and fall as she sleeps, Twilight will realize that all the chaos, all the sleepless nights, all the diapers and imperfectness her life has fallen to is worth it; because this little person is the most beautiful, most precious, perfect thing in the world.

How do these things get quite so big? And to get this you may need a bigger twig. - fetchbeer
Because real life is way easier than being original.
