Fix by RedApropos Fix by RedApropos
And that night, Twilight wrote a letter to Celestia.

You can't fix what isn't broken. Instead, it was Twilight's own perspective that our little Derpy Hooves helped fix. :D

--------EDIT----------

- FEATURED ON EQD! [link]

- I would like to point out that you are, indeed, looking at Princess Twilight. Look, you can even see her wings.

I really really really really really really really really really really really really really love this! (Sorry for all the 'reallys', I'm trying to put more words becasue of the 100 - word minimum). FINALLY, a comic that says Derpy is fine just the way she is!!! I love how Twilight realizes the same, and how she's smiling and getting teary in the last few panels. Derpy looks best being wall - eyed, in my opinion, and I guess Derpy thinks so too. ^_^ They're both awesome ponies, awesome comic, and awesome idea. Thank you for making this awesome piece of awesomeness!!! :iconderpylaplz: :icontwilightlaplz: :iconderpylaplz: :icontwilightlaplz: :iconderpylaplz: :icontwilightlaplz: :iconderpylaplz: :icontwilightlaplz:

To emphasize how amazing this comic is, I'd like to say that this made me make a "dawww" folder just so I could put this in it.
Anyway, Critique. Yes, that thing:
The idea of "fixing" Derpy (especially her eyes) isn't anything really new. BUT, the way you presented it is certainly something I haven't seen done before, not as a censor, but as a compassion meant in good will. As far as art goes, it's pretty basic, but it fits really well. Derpy looks adorably derpy, Twilight looks fine, even if looks a bit wonky in some of the details. The change of the background color is clever, and the use of comic effects (Movement lines and laughter) are really nice, and make it fell a bit more interesting where the scenes would look a bit empty.
In all, I really like it. In terms of how professionall it looks, I'd only give it a 3.5. The take on the concept is pretty original, so I'll give that a 4. The design you used is really fitting, and adds on to the impression. It could've been a little more cleaned up in spots, but it's really good. Almost a five, I'll give it. Impact: Like I said before, so many dawwwwwws, and it's really nice how portrayed the situation. Since this is now a pretty old concept, the message feels a little stale, I'll be completely honest. But they way you projected it in this fashion makes it really touching, with Derpy being accepting of herself and showing others that there's nothing wrong with who she is. 4.5. Almost 5.

I'm reading the comics from the newest to the oldest... It's like watching an artist progress a lot in a few years. Backwards. Except that this was only under a year ago... Yup. Fast progress.

As I recall he ends up believing that SpongeBob actually IS stupid... Forcing SpongeBob to run off in a fit of frustration... Then he finds out that the two starfish AREN'T his parents... Nope... Never bothers to apologize to his CLOSEST FRIEND...

Then of course you have the "Patrick Driving Episode" where Patrick out right IGNORES every single driving rule in the book and accuses SpongeBob of having no room to criticize him because, and of course, he doesn't have a license... Except of course Patrick is making such obvious mistakes that EVEN SpongeBob could realize when he's doing wrong...

There's the "Patrick is Royalty" bit where Patrick believes he's king and becomes a Giant asshole to everyone... Stealing a poor guy's comic book collection (Which the poor bastard spent his entire life collecting) because he believes he deserves it... Patrick might realize he's an ass at the end... But he still doesn't return anything he took...

And Then you have the "Sharing Episode"... The one where SpongeBob buys Patrick a meal they could share... Patrick eats it all... And the entire episode Patrick takes everything without feeling sorry... Then he criticizes SpongeBob the ONE TIME AT THE END when Sponge complains...

I'm sorry... What did Derpy do?... Accidentally destroy the Mayor's office because she is simply unaware of her own strength?... At least she was concerned about Rainbow Dash when she was crushed through the floor... Hell she actually TRIED to control herself when Rainbow told her to just sit there and do nothing... Unfortunately she just doesn't know her own strength...

Yep... As I've stated... Patrick Star is more offensive than Derpy Hooves...
