Edit Dec 02, '12: Fixed some artwork errors.

Still playing the music from page 36? Good!

During the conception of this page, I was originally gonna have Twilight give this speech, but then, as I was doing the first sketch of frame 15 on the previous page, I had accidentally drawn Applejack out of frame. So, as I was redrawing it, I realized "Hey! Applejack should totally say this!"

And now, Applejack is my favorite pony.

D'aawww. I am really loving this comic!

My wife and I were actually talking about this very concept. That's a good lesson everyone should learn!

Also, I just love the expressions i this comic. It's really, really fun!

Except Garret. He's a griffon. He'll probably kill a squirrel or something. Nopony wants to see that.

... okay... would have though crying it all out first would have been a good intermediary step...

maybe a bit too quick of a turn around there...

I dont know... negativity is non sentient, but it can definitely manifest in bad ways... like a "dark side" or "shadow"... i'm not one to think monsters are there from the beginning or that there are monsters to begin with... but that doesn't meant monsters cant or wont spawn from it if you're not careful...

mistakes, sort comings, simple susceptibility to pain and painful memories,

ashamed? not entirely, more regretful

afraid? not really, just aware

a part? sure, but its just a component, as small a one as i can make... like the small shadows on a marble statue to give the dimensions perspective and texture... njot like a malignancy that needs to be removed...

Beautiful - inspiring - tear-inducing - remarkable.

Thank you for this. I think Namah made a mistake that she will regret until she can reconcile it with Fluttershy and the rest of the Mane 6.

I don't know yet whether Namah has told the truth about the Griffon; I must read on! But either way this is an amazing story.

Light and laughter,

Despite what she's been through, I think Fluttershy needed this sort of thing. From now on she's gonna be a better pony. Actually, this would make a good letter to the princess!

...yeah. And she can choose not to be shy, too. Or a fraidy-cat.
Right.
I'm not sure this is much less dismissive than you were complaining the show had been. If she has anger issues, she really needs better advice than to be told she doesn't "have to" take them out on others.

...though, Fluttershy being Fluttershy, I suppose there was always a more than decent chance of her accepting whatever she was told as the truth.

And here I am back at the page that inspired me to read this comic. It's a fantastic message, and it comes across very well. It kind of helps I was linked from what the most recent chapter of the Fimfic "Waking Nightmares", in which this message is used.
I think I'll have to look up this Persona 4 you mentioned on an earlier comment, but I am not sure if it will work quite as well for me as it does here.

The story so far is quite interesting, too. I think I'll have to stay for a while. :)

Fluttershy having the stare is the most logical choice, because she's the least likely to ABUSE it.

It's similar when you look at the expanded universe material of Captain Planet. The Heart power may seem the weakest of the lot, but when you take what the heart ring can do to it's logical conclusion, you realize it's the MOST powerful, and Mati was given the ring NOT because he was the runt of the group, but because he also was the member of the team who was the least likely to abuse his power!

I like this moral. You have to put your vices to work for you instead of against you.

Greed becomes thrift. Wrath becomes righteous indignation. Envy becomes a drive to succeed. I'm running out of analogies, but I'm sure there are more.

I'm not sure I like this interpretation of "The Stare." But I like the idea that Fluttershy can take her malice and put it in it's proper place.

Well done!
