Autumn. Colors aren't as bright, but are deeper. Life is starting to slow, but it seems to go by so fast. In everything around you, you remember the seasons that have passed with fondness, and through that you appreciate the time you have now even more. Emotion is not dulled by time as color and warmth have been, it is sweetened. The cool of the change in weather is tolerable, because there is somepony to keep you warm. Her color isn't dulled, it's deeper. A trade for the life of good times you had with her. With all the slow days you spent just being together, they all seem to have passed so quickly. You remember the life you had with her with fondness, knowing that there's no way you could love her then any more than you do now. That love hasn't been dulled but time, it's been sweetened. Her warmth is all you need to be happy forever.
Autumn, third in a series of four images I have planned. No, I didn't forget Cobalt's mud. Her mud, if you knew Cobalt, she wears because she was ignored as a foal by those around her. Her Promise let her know that she didn't need that mud for him to notice her a long time ago, and she hasn't needed it since.
