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.

Derpy's eyes are what make her so charming and lovable. What was originally an animator's mistake has become a beloved character who is playful, innocent, upbeat... and far more intelligent and well spoken than we gave her credit for. That was confirmed once and for all in "Slice of Life". I'm so glad to see that Twilight finally got that. Derpy was the pony that got me into the herd last year, triggering a series of events that took me from California to grad school here in Hawaii, where I now create MLP fan art both at school and at a local comic jam near Pearl Harbor.

I suggest Derpy can see quite well, she just has lazy eye. Derpy Emote icon

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.
