30min Challenge - The Rite of Askh-Ente by atryl 30min Challenge - The Rite of Askh-Ente by atryl
Today’s challenge is…

“Oh sweet Celestia we killed Twilight!”

Let that sink in for a second.

You know for a minute at least some of those poniies thought they just murdered their good friend Twilight. That’s a black scorch mark. It doesn’t speak of something nice normally and I think you can also see what I mean in their faces.

So what you’re to draw is what happened in that window between Twilight’s ‘death’ and return. Or you could go more ‘what if that actually happened’ if you would like. Whichever inspires you darlings~

----

So... I thought, what if they did the askh-ente rite (summon death, and ask things if needed) from Terry pratchett's Discworld?

This was happened in Colour of Magic, when the wizards summoned Death, and he was at a masquerade party. At the end of the discussion:

Galder: I said I hope it is a good party.
AT THE MOMENT IT IS. I THINK IT MIGHT GO DOWNHILL VERY QUICKLY AT MIDNIGHT. Galder: Why?
THAT'S WHEN THEY THINK I'LL BE TAKING MY MASK OFF.

Nice draw technique You really have talent in showing expressions. The Colors are picked very good and are nice for eye, The idea is very original (when I was watching that moment in the show somewhere in my head I think "O yEah now the DEATH will Appear" or "something went wrong"). I also watched your other Discworld related art an it also very good (Your Trixie is one of my favourite arts) And I expect you will don someday a My Little Pony FIM x Discworld comic (well it's only a suggestion and my dream) At the and of my first Critique on dev I wish smooth pencil and creative brain in your future works
What do you think?

This has probably already been mentioned, but I can't tell because I am in "more like this" mode right now:
There is a fanfic where Pinkie is descended from Binky (after he retired0, and ends up occasionally doing his job... then later she accidentally becomes DEATH.

Interesting that even in the Discverse, Death as we encounter him is only the Death of the Discworld (and even then he allows the Death of Rats a separate existence).

Presumably, the Death of Equestria's planet would be a separate entity, at least inasmuch as all planet-level Deaths are ultimately part of Azrael. He or she would most likely utilize their shapeshifting ability more often, though, given the world's multiple sapient species.

(Interesting point - Discworld thaumo-optical physics could explain rainbooms. If it wasn't for a globe appearing in The Secret of My Excess, Equestria being on a disc would explain some of its local astronomical effects, too.)

Death is easily the best character in Disc World. You have no idea how much joy it brings me to see you merge the two worlds together like this. I think Terry Pratchett totally allows for it too given his description of Death in the books - so in a way, it's canon :3

I don't know how you did it, but I just scrolled past that image without really looking at it and thought: "Hey, is that Death from Discworld?" I mean, it's just a skeleton in a black robe, but somehow I immediately knew who he was supposed to be.

the shape of the robe is Discworld, never seen any other Death with this kind of robe.

And then there's the drink with the little umbrella. Not many other versions of Death would be seen carrying one of those around.
