This is a remake of my old pony OC- Princess Everfree. I drew her some time ago on a different account and decided to re-draw her on here because I didn't like the fact that her old color palette was close to Luna's (plus the art wasn't so good)
Old version here: [link]
I did write out a back story for her and I hope you guys like her. c:
A long long time ago when Equestria was still young and Luna was still by Celestia's side, there had been another princess named Everfree. She was far less important than the other sisters in the eyes of other ponies as her power was to give free will to any and all items... and in a land ruled and controlled by ponies with many unique skills and abilities, her power was close to useless.
Feeling insignificant and unappreciated, the Princess fled the castle and flew to uncharted lands. Finding a bare, uninhabited spot, the Princess decided to make this place her own little kingdom. A place where everything would do things on their own so that the hard working ponies would have more time for themselves! The plants would grown on their own, the animals would know how to take care of themselves, the clouds would come and go on their own. Ponies would love it! They could frolic and play and wouldn't have to worry about the daily struggles!
Exited about her own idea, the Princess used her magic that engulfed the uninhabited land, making it sprout lush grass and beautiful trees. Flowers of all kinds would bloom and soon enough animals never seen before started appearing... Pleased with the result, the Princess invited some ponies to come and live in her newly made place and at first the ponies loved it. It was new and exiting and so much to explore, you never knew what the next day would bring... but as time went on, the land started sprouting some weird things... hostile animals that had no reason to befriend ponies and strange plants that would have undesired effects. The ponies started feeling uneasy and eventually started fearing the unknown... The land grew on it's own, so there was no telling what lurked behind the bushes...
And just as the fear was at it's worst, the sun didn't rise one day. Believing that this was the result of this strange land, the ponies fled back to Equestria, telling everyone that the Everfree lands were ones to be feared and no pony should ever go there.
Princess Everfree was heartbroken. Her beautiful land and her well-meaning wish turned for the worst... She did not want the land to become dangerous, but with a mind of it's own now, the land just kept doing as it wished... At a certain point the Princess wanted to leave her land in hopes that it will loose the free will and everything would come back to normal once her magic wears off, but the land, that was now a great big lush forest, did not let her go. It needed the princess's magic to be able to continue growing and evolving on it's own, so it imprisoned Princess Everfree deep underground. The Prison was shaped in such a way, that if the forest were to die, the prison would collapse on the princess itself, ending her life.
Trapped by her own creation, Everfree had no other choice but to comply and resume giving the forest it's much needed magic... were she to refuse she would die and the fear of death is what's keeping the Everfree forest going up to this day.
As time passed the memory of an overlooked princess faded, but the fear for the land she had created stayed. Forgotten and left to her miserable fate, Princess Everfree has become simply... neverfree...
