Guess Again by RedApropos Guess Again by RedApropos
Some time ago, someone suggested I draw a comic with Pinkie Pie and Rarity.
Here it is!



Because there's a frightening number of people who don't get the joke:

Rair' - "What do you think this place is?"
Pinks - "Carousel Boutique."
Rair' - "Yeah, well, you're treating it like the spa."

Except Pinkie said she thought it was the spa.
She knew what Rarity was going to say, and said it first.
She was being a smartass.

Welcome to the world of humour that doesn't involve pony memes!

This piece here is another comic I find myself, enjoying mindlessly with no real objection to, however I didn't understand the message or joke of this comic, I assumed it was that Rarity went to the spa after hearing the word spa, but I can't be too sure, it confused me quite a bit, although the originality is impressive because I haven't seen too many Rarity and Pinkie comics to my knowledge this is the first I have seen . the technique is as always what I expect from the artist, good style that is something good to look at as well as being something of his own quality, I may not get the joke of this or message and it may not have had a heavy impact, but it doesn't mean I didn't like it I actually enjoyed reading this comic, it was well designed.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
53 out of 77 deviants thought this was fair.

Funny. The punchline hit me at just about the same moment Rarity got to her "I see what you did there and we are not amused" srs bsns face. Pinky obviously cheated and read the next panel for the right answer before responding to the question in the previous one.

Vision: An actually original Pinky Pie Hijinks comic. It's been done before, but it's hard at this point to really pull off the "original" part.

Originality: Which you totally nailed. You have Pinkie interacting with Rarity, which by your own observation, happens about as often as Rainbow Dash out-nerding Twilight Sparkle. Add to that a gag I've actually never before seen (I'm sure it's been done before in some other medium, but if it has, I've never seen it), and you have a recipe for something fresh.

Technique: Hand-drawn, complete with wavy-thick-outline-hand-drawn feel. Not a bad thing at all. Borrowing existing background vectors where needed? Fair game. There's just one thing that's niggling me. Pinkie's position in those first two panels just doesn't visually read well; she looks like a pile of pink blobbiness like Lumpy Space Princess or something. I can't really make out what's supposed to be going on there.

Impact: Not much left to say. It's a comic, so the impact is in how well the dialogue comes together with the visuals. While I got the joke as intended without reading the description, and I think using Rarity as part of the delivery for Pinkie's antics was a solid choice, it's clear the joke was still lost on some, so perhaps it was a bit too subtly executed. While I'm usually pretty good at figuring out and offering some helpful tips to remedy shortcomings, I'm really left scratching my head for want of ways the delivery could be improved so it isn't so hit-or-miss that you end up having to explain it in the description.

Why does Pinkie look like a pregnant amputee in the first two panels?

Pinkies not pregnant, that is just her thigh, making her look fat...

Ha! Rarity had been "Pinkie'd" (The new prank show with your host, Pinkie Pie)

And what episode contain the original joke ?
LuRose98 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
Oh yes I love raripie. I really hope they get an episode together in season 5

They wont make a Mare x Mare couple in a kids show.
LuRose98 Featured By Owner Edited 6 days ago
I mean they have an episode where Rarity and Pinkie are the focus. Like Fall Weather Friends where it was AJ and Rainbow. Or Green isn't your color with Rarity and Fluttershy. Or Feeling Pinkie Keen with Twilight and Pinkie. And even if that wasn't what I meant, what's wrong with having a lesbian couple on a kids show? Good Luck Charlie featured one in an episode.
xXPinkflyerXx Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Digital Artist
Which one :/
LuRose98 Featured By Owner 5 days ago
One of their later episodes. I think it's called "Down a Tree"

Ich-hab-sauergurken Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Student General Artist
Pinkie Pie expected Rarity's retort before she said it, so she decided to be a smartass and say it first. Seriously, it's explained right there in the description...
KatrueYumeNikki Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
sorry if i didn't read the description. absolutely no need to be rude

You didn't read the description?
You must be a YouTuber!
KatrueYumeNikki Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
the hell?
NellzDaBlackKing Featured By Owner May 2, 2014
He's saying you must the large percentage of frequent YouTube users who comments on stuff that is said in the description, but constantly fails to read it and someone who has read it has to answer your question and tell you to read it or say something similar to "Description is your best friend". It's a repeated process that gets annoying. The lesson is, read the description please before commenting any questions. (And this is me not being rude by the way)
KatrueYumeNikki Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ugh, i just don't keep reading descriptions because most of times they are USELESS and a WASTE OF TIME to read. JUST SAYING.
NellzDaBlackKing Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
:iconhueyfreemanplz: On average, (if you're a good reader), it wastes about 10 to 15 seconds on your time, and considering you're on the Internet cruising around in the first place, you was already wasting time. Just saying.

Does "Putting Your Hoof Down" Count???

I mean I know it was predominantly about Fluttershy, but Rarity and Pinkie Pie were paired up for the episode

I donīt understand 9 out of 10 of your jokes.
I donīt even saw the joke in the explanation you wrote into the desciption. 
Some people have really a weird sense of humor.
SuperFluttershy100 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014
You're right. These two should have an episode together :iconnoddingtwilightplz:
Fire5236 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They were together for a really long time at the end of The Last Roundup episode. But we didn't see the entire thing. Someone should make a comic about what happened next :D

But actually, I've seen a few already x3
