Tactical Bookfort by SpaceKingofSpace Tactical Bookfort by SpaceKingofSpace
Commander Twilight is under heavy fire from the couchin empire, bombarded by heavy pillow ordinance. With only the trusty bookfort to protect her and Private Smarty-Pants, things look grim and her bed time is fast approaching. She won\'t go without a fight though, not so long as the walls of Bookfort stand tall and stop falling over when she bumps them

------------------------------------------------------------------

A silly idea I had after seeing the 'filly twilight in a bookfort' images around.

Submitted as design for a shirt in the WeLoveFine competition: [link]

Funny coincidence, I relatively recently talked of ''Tactical Bookfort'' on a picture that was showing an ''Apple Fort'' (mentioning the possibility of combining both Forts, to get something resistant and mobile).

Now Filly-Twilight can set camp inside enemy territory. ;)

"not so long as the walls of Bookfort stand tall and stop falling over when she bumps them" this line actually made the picture even more adorable than I thought was possible
