Friendship Is... Worth Fighting For

I made this comic mostly as a gift to my friend :iconturbosolid: because I have been a jerk to him lately and I want to show him that his friendship isn't worthless to me. It is also for everyone else as a cautionary lesson, even though the comic's lesson seems obvious, you might not know you are hurting someone until it's too late. After I learned this lesson the hard way, I decided it was worthy of sending a letter to Princess Celestia.

I started this comic towards the end of December last year. I was going to finish it earlier but then I had a commission I had to attend to. Also I used simple backgrounds to emphasize Turbo's importance (he is our background guy).

really good comic. but i will say that you missed something. friendship is NOT for evereypony! and it when you finally got a true friend, the frinedhsip is going better. i am not gonna say anything else, couse i know that my inglish SUCKS! but i wish you understand what im trying to tell you. the comic has many references about true frineship and its really a good example a bout frinedship. the comic has an beautiful art style. the originality is amazing. couse many people tried to make comics about this. and, it´s horrible to say that, normaly, they had none message about friendship and i congrats you for that. but, i hope you have (and if you don´t have, i hope you find it soon) a true friend. couse the best way to learn is making it YOURSELF. i hope i wasn´t to direct.

Well I don't quite understand what you meant by friendship is not for everyone, but luckily for you I understood enough of what you said to understand the critique. By the way I wrote in the description that I made this as an apology to one of my friends.

Oh, okay.

Now, when you say pony, do you mean pony or pony??

Just asking. Your critique is very accurate, and well thought out. But I feel like it's a little vague.

Why yes, when I say pony I mean pony. Thanks for asking!

IS DONUT TIME!
Technique: 5th panel is best panel! All I'd change is that I can't tell who is writing the friendship report and it might've been an idea to make it clearer. And more Rarity.
Originality: I have seen many an Appledash arguing comic in my time but you resolved it nicely and with a little more improvement you may learn to include Rarity.
Impact: As I said, this isn't my first time viewing the stubbornness of Applejack and Rainbow Dash but this is a new layout. Suggestions for improvement can be summed up in four words: MOAR RARITY LIKE YEAH.
Vision: It's like you have emotions and stuff! It's a new look for you. Que bueno. Have 4.5 donuts.
HailRarity, out.

I have never drawn Rarity to date. You're not helping the cause.

Fall weather season, this was a very good lesson from the show. Too many friends have walked out on each other due to pride and selfishness. Artistically I like the soft shading but you still made the ponies more then recognizable from the show. I like how you made Rainbow Dash the usual proud pony, fix the relationship. It's so true that at one minute you hate your friend and the next you feel that your not worthy of them. I also like how instead of making a comic, you made one from your heart relating to a circumstance in you own life. In all this is a cute and influential comic.

Actually all this is realistic because it's what I went through. Rainbow is my favorite pony and AJ is Turbo's favorite (idk he always switches between AJ and Twilight, but Twi isn't the pony to get ionto an irrational fight). I got into a fight with him and then he said fak u and left and I literally felt like I was the biggest jerk ever and he has been nothing but nice to me.

<img class="avatar" src="a.deviantart.net/avatars/t/h/t…" alt=":iconthatfeelplz:" title="thatfeelplz" /> Feels man.

Let's start with vision. You definitely had a very clear vision of what you wanted this comic to be, and you did it quite nicely.
As for originality, I don't think I've ever seen such a moving comic from these two ponies. Your technique is superb. You are most certainly developing a personal and recognizable style, and I love it. The personal impact for me was quite deep. Thank you for this really.

Now that I have critiqued this artistically, I feel I need to say a few things. Our relationship has very often been a rocky one. I was the new guy, and it was completely understandable for you to hold a bit of resentment. There have been times where I wanted to stop completely and just give up, but when I heard these words from the season finale I was nearly moved to tears. "Friendship isn't always easy, but its definitely worth fighting for." These words only ring truer today. Our relationship is definitely too valuable to give up on. I'm glad that I am able to work with two awesome people doing things I enjoy. I hope I am able to do it for as long as I am able.
