Well, what do you know? I just woke up from my coma, and then fell unconscious all over again in ten seconds flat! This can't be healthy.

I won't lie. This page almost got delayed. Right when I was about 95% finished with it, my computer started lagging horribly. So, I thought "I'll just save it here, shut the computer off, turn it back on again and continue with fresh speed." Well, I did that, and it only saved about the last 5% of what I did. All that was left was a hoof (because I originally had Derpy's mane between my front hooves), part of a speech balloon (a black oval) and some text (the lines from the first panel)!

And to make it all worse, this was one that I was really looking forward to making. So, naturally, I was pretty ticked off. All that work down the drain, that I had spent hours on over two days (because my computer kept lagging and freezing so much). So, I feel a bit bittersweet about this one. I have mixed feelings.

Oh, well. I have to say it ended up looking better than the original one did anyway. It was pretty much this, except without some of the newer, cooler effects (and the ever-so-slight pink background in the middle panels). I even had an unused Lugbzurg graphic left over.

And of course, I am not going to forget to mention that the three Derpy Hooves graphics I used were provided (in order) by...

> Felix Kot (Derpy in Perplexity)
> Timon1771 (That famous Derpy art)
> Blackgryph0n (Confused Derpy)

All from DeviantART.

i think your processor just overheated
try cleaning those dust and dirt inside your comp's casing
but if your comp is in a room with AC then i don't think that's the case

which means you should probably get a new hard drive cause your current one is getting outdated or something
if you keep using that one it'll eventually derp out and you won't be able to boot into your comp anymore
make sure to back up stuffs



no wait why am i helping you out i'm supposed to hate you :I

Uh, lugbzurg, this isn't really, well... you. I mean... a comic about ponies? I can't really say that I'm all 100% happy about this. Sure, it's a great story. But, I mean, cmon Lug. PONIES?! I can't say I've seen a more unusual, and I use the term in a good way, comic.

I don't really understand what made you do this. Lug, I'm not trying to imply that I think this is gay or anything. Really, I don't think that. Your character has been turned into a pony and is surrounded by unicorn people. That's all. Your character is probably weirded out by this, right? I mean, if I was surrounded by girls, I'd probably like it. But, if they were ponies? Yeah, I'd be weirded out all right.

@Kuzer1000: Why did I do this? Because ponies are rockin' awesome! I've been enjoying this as my MOST favorite show for quite some time, now! It's very "me". I wanted to do something to show my bronyism, and this is what I chose, because, I make webcomics.

Strangely, enough, this isn't strange. The majority of this show's fanbase is made up of adult men.

The characters you see up there are not all unicorns. Only two of them. There are also pagasai and earth ponies.

I think I may have been able to pull off this comic (visually), BECAUSE I've been making sprite comics for years. It's a very similar process. Plus, I can make the characters much bigger, with no pixelated blur! Also, with GIMP, I've got a huge load of special effects I can use!

So, why do I even like it? Well, the new season just kicked off at this point. Maybe, you should see it.

Then again, if you have to start right from the beginning, go right ahead.

@Kuzer1000: This show is not at all girly. Just to clear that misconception you seem to have picked up.

It was Lauren Faust (the show's creator)'s goal to make it totally non-girly, and it WORKED!

This is my favorite show. I'm not kidding. I've been more enticed in the plots than in Fullmetal Alchemist. I've been frightened by it more than Doctor Who.

It is incredible! Speaking of which...

Here are your crossovers!

I finally saw the videos you posted, and the second TF2 video (the Sandvich song) I've seen before I knew about MLP: FiM. In fact, I favorited the video! Then, a few days later, I told my friend about the video, and he replies, "Oh, that song is Pinkie Pie's Cupcake song." I was confused for two reasons: I couldn't believe one of my favorite videos was based on My Little Pony and I have no idea how he knew that.

I still don't know how he knew about that song...

@Jarkes: Well, Lern2Surture actually became a friend, quite a while ago.

Slif is a troll. He bugs a lot of people, and I became his chosen target as soon as I brought up the Serendipity trailer on The Epigy of Randomness. I warned him several times after his constant harassment that I would report him, which I ended up doing. Haven't heard from him since.

As for that posting place, a couple whatsits yelled at me for daring to comment and told me to shut up and never comment again, even though I was only saying casual things like everyone else. The owner showed up and just banned me from commenting, just because there were a couple of people I'd never even heard of who didn't like me and were talking all nastily.

"Love and Tolerate"? Not to people who speak civilly, is what it seems.
