Can you spot all of the references on this page?

To answer the inevitable critics, yes, Twilight's friends have noticed that she's not been herself lately, and they have been worrying about her, but they've been worrying off-page.

Showing the reactions of 5 other ponies, and Spike, and the Princesses would take too long to do well, so I've basically condensed all of the character's worrying about Twilight into this page and the next page, and I haven't I haven't shown the rest as I'm trying to concentrate on doing Twilight's story rather than theirs.

Worst sequatial story telling i have ever seen. First Spike is happy until others see him and now looks angry that he has to pretend that he's upset. Shouldn't it start with him looking depressed and only get angry when he mentions Celestia?

I gave up looking at this after being rudely acused of being a meat puppet by PerfectBlue. I don't like the direction or the pace or the depiction of a stupid Twilight. I am allowed to disagree and voice that.

Oh, I know, but I just don't see the point, the author isn't going to change Twilight's personality traits. If you happen to find that rude, ignore me.

Well the lack of personality, among other problems.


I stopped reading this comic after the author insulted me for giving a mixed review. I disliked some thing, but liked that it seemed as if it was remembering the plot. It felt like she was trying to stir something up so she had a reason to boot me. I would have been wiling to see this through to the end otherwise. But from what I have seen its a mess and whatever gets Twilight on track will be forced after so many others have tried to do the same. I still find the facial experions to be out of place at times and the humor poor for the most part.

It's good to see this comic get serious/emotional for a moment, if only for a single frame. =)

Button mash missing? Meh, he's probably barricaded himself in his room trying to beat Battletoads. Blame :iconpony-berserker: for that one.

I'm ramping up this aspect of the comic from here onwards. It's going to get more intense up until about page 120.

One thing I don't get is, if Twilight doesn't care about anything anymore, why would she bother sending a dress to Rarity to be let out? I mean, even if she hadn't gotten to the point of not caring at all when she dropped off the dress (which I doubt she planned on wearing anytime soon, anyway), I don't see why she would bother sending Spike to pick it up. Anyways, just a thought from my pesky logic circuit.

Well ... um.

There's two things at play in that panel.

Firstly, Twilight sent the dress to Rarity but it wasn't Twilight who collected it, which is a way of telling the audience that Rarity hasn't seen Twilight for some time.

Secondly, Twilight sent Rarity a dress to be "let out", you know, "adjusted" ... hint, hint.

If y'all still didn't get it, having a dress let out means that Twilight is putting on weight. She's sitting around the library all day eating junk food and is getting a little tubby.

Pardon me, but those look like claw marks on her face.
Also, she appears to have Rarity's eyes when Spike appears.

If they were claw marks there would be 4 lines cause spike has 4 fingers and colored red but there are 6 lines and colored pink

Not claw marks. Blushing. Y'know, because she was so startled she made a little mess on the ground, eliciting a comment from Lyra. Look closely, you'll see it.

I reused the vector for Rarity, but missed the eyes when I recolored it.

When I do the background posters, I usually do them as a hi-res image and then shrink them down to fit the comic.

I should still have the original somewhere.
