What did that angry looking pony at the front say? Come on, sister. Let's go.
Hello! Can I use this picture as the coverart for a fanfiction I'm writing aimed to be a campy, sexy adventure in our favorite pegasi metropolis? I especially want to ask your permission because, while I would not consider what I'm writing a clopfic (a fic only for the 18+ indulgence) it will cover mature stuff explicitly, though I aim to use themes like that to actually push the narrative and such.
In any case I ask because it wouldn't feel right to me to take a piece of hard work and use it to represent something of mine like that without the explicit permission of the artist.
