Doctor Stable is THE most underrated MLP background character ever. Sure, his design is just a slight variation of Caramel, and even his cutie mark is pretty uninspired, but come on! He's got some of the best dialogue in the whole series, he balances kindness and cynism beautifully, and he's got a great supporting cast of nurses and patients!

And Screw Loose. I love this mare so much. Not only was her one scene hilarious, but it was actually pretty gutsy. Plus, just the way the character is presented makes you want to learn more about her. I'm so glad she made a cameo this last season, brief as it was, it was pretty sweet.

So what happens when you put them together? Well, awesome sauce drawings like this one, which is what inspired this drawing.

I loved it the moment I first encountered it.  The sarcastic, impatient, but basically decent and kind-hearted doctor and the affectionate, excitable mental patient.  So wrong, and yet so right!

It was nice seeing Screw Loose again.  She seems to be getting better, but I like to think she's still hasta be careful not to relapse, breaking into profused sweating every time a squirrel runs past her.

SUPER MEGA AWESOME SAUCE! That's what I put on my tacos. So I'll just put this on my taco and all will be perfect! I also love how crazy Screw Lose is. And the dog barking as it passes her house. It can make her seem crazy again. XD

Screw Loose is one of my favorite backers. i had a commission for her from icon:ponywise:[link]
beautiful work. and came across this song
[link]
but she had a second appearance in season 3, you know?

That's a lovely commision! And yeah, Screwy had two back-to-back cameos in season 3. Not only was she in ponyville being dropped off by a nurse, but she was also in the train that carried Spike, the pets and the CMC. You can only see her mane there, but there's no mistaking it!
