Guys I've never been so glad of putting off designing something in my whole life!!!
Parents: Applejack x Coloratura
Nicknames: Cuppie, Butters, Cups, Bright Eyes, Bookie (by her little cousins)
Build: Chubby and Short
Special talent: Playing the acoustic guitar but mostly writing small heartwarming songs that remind ponies of sunny mornings
Description: a cute little pack of sunshine, full of songs and bad puns
Background: Named after her later grandmother, Buttercup is the apple of her mothers' eyes, she first held a guitar on a bonfire with momma Applejack by her side, Applejack had made her a small ukelele sized guitar for her to play with, She is still has it and plays it every once in a while. Since Coloratura moved into Sweet Apple Acres (she and Applejack build themselves a little side house close to the barn) Paparazzi had suddenly appeared behind the apple trees, Big Macintosh, Applejack and Winona had been pretty good at controlling the situation, but the pregnancy made it unbearable for everyone involved, still, Buttercup was born in Sweet Apple Acres like every Apple before her.
Everypony had high expectatives for Cups since a very young age. For a while she took it well, she was a child prodigy and a natural lyricist, but as she grew older ponies started to realize Buttercup wasn't the singer her mother was. She was good, but it was like comparing lighting with candlelight, people thought that she would outgrow her guitar covers and little melodies but that was just the type of music that she liked to make, and thanks to both her mother's support she always stuck to who she was and not to what the masses wanted her to be.
About: Buttercup considers herself a normal mare, never felt any different for being the daughter of a pop star, she has a moderate amount of friends (quality over quantity), she loves her family as much as they love her, and she falls in love surprisingly often, the only difference is that after all of this, she makes songs based on it all, adding a bit of surrealism for artistic appeal. She loves the out doors and was raised a country fillie, making it hard for her during playdates with the pompous kids of Coloratura's colleagues. Her self steem could be higher but she always looks for the good on people and lives by the philosophy of "fool me once..."
