Uh, Twilight... I think you're doing it wrong

Twilight Sparkle assets from Flamingo1986. Puppet rig here: [link]
EDIT: I found the background via a Google image search [link], but I think it's from Drud14's My Little Pony: Flash Resource Kit [link] at my best guess. If anyone can verify this, I would really appreciate it!
EDIT: Sound samples were either pulled from MLP:FiM or found on findsounds.com
All other assets (book, candle, etc.) and animation are mine.
Your comments make me so Happy. I can't answer back to all BUT i assure you THEY MEAN ALOT TO ME. So i hope you guys understand that i acknowledge the comments but i won't reply to it unless its a question or i have something to say about it, K ?
Also, i made a sequel >>> fav.me/d7e2e8p _______________________________________________
You probably need to wait a good 1 to 5 minutes before this thing will actually play.I am horrid at flash coding so i did not have a proper loading screen to make up for this HUGE file. Huge apologies before hand. ALSO, as there is no replay button,you are gonna have to manually right click and hit "play" to return.
PLEASE click the little glowing muffin on the bottom right to see the second half of this little animation.
I Love My Little Pony:FIM. Derpy is a character which i had grown closest to as i love how a simple background pony with no importance whatsoever, could stand out so well(even if it was an accident). Ever since the Derpy incident a few months back, i loved her even more as the both of us shared a common problem. Acceptance. Even in the fan base, Derpy still suffered not being accepted by some Bronies/Pegasisters.
A few weeks before, i got into a state of depression. It was seemingly similar to the story of Derpy where i had a tiny "problem" with some of my friends accepting me, i embraced it to draw the Sad Derpy. referencing the problem to the Winter Wrap Up episode where Rainbow Dash gets annoyed at Derpy for flying in the wrong direction to fetch the Southern Birds.
When i realized that... i cannot please everyone, and that... what's important is how i think about myself... Accepting myself for who i am and not what people thought of me, then only did i draw the Happy Derpy, which might explain the small up of quality between the 2 Derpys.(If you are reading until here you probably already knew where i hid the link to the Happy Derpy, which is that muffin)
The epic piece of artwork that you can see in the background is inspired by Happy Holidays by Br0ny And all the voice work is done by TheRobotButterfly! Who happened to also do voicework for a previous animation, Lyra's secret. Also, I seemed to have picked up a helper! Kaig3n has generously offered to help with vectoring, and he vectored all the furniture and walls! : D This wouldn't have gotten done without Kaig3n's help, it would have just sat on the backburner for the rest of eternity. :3
This is my first actual flash "movie" I've ever made. It was more or less practice for me as i transition from making basic character animations and onto full-fledged videos. My animation is pretty lackluster as i became very impatient about halfway, and put the video on hold for maybe.. 5-6 months? So eventually in the last bits of the video i actually take it up a notch in my effort.
Expect better from me in the future, as i'm not entirely proud of this xD
