This newest episode hit me right where it hurts. Loved it so much, this comic was inspired and based on a comment from /mlp/

For those who know my experience about grandparents and regret

Dear Grandma by Edowaado

Now go be the Granddad your daughter wanted you to be Grand Pear.

+ I'll be attending Galacon holding a panel about common drawing mistakes artists usually make : )

The only thing that would have made this more heartbreaking is if the last letter that was sent to him was to alert him of his daughters passing and when the funeral would take place...

That episode was an emotional roller coaster for me. I cried and smiled. It was a very good episode, and your comic was a great way to look into her father's feelings. Very well drawn and written.

The true tragedy of the story. It's sad Bright Mac and Pear Butter are gone... but imagine the one who has to live with it. At least... he still has the chance to make up for it, even slightly if anything. One thing he can do before the final grain of sand in his mortal clock runs out; be the grandfather your family wanted you to be.

This is so well done, I love it. It's so emotional. I liked it so much that I made a fan dub of it. Here's the link, I credited in both the video and the description. - www.youtube.com/watch?v=e62ZSN…

A man could do many horrible things in life with no regrets, but he should never break his little girl's heart as their last true moment as father... And daughter...

This is a WONDERFUL comic. It REALLY feels like something in the original episode script that had to be cut for time. I like how you don't reveal that she died or anything, it's just, like the episode itself, strongly implied. I still think we might get an episode revealing what actually happened someday. If/when we do there's no way this will become a contradiction (unless said episode makes its own Grand Pear flashback)

Excellent work.

It's just painful because something like this, his guilt, it's pretty much canon. It's not some dark or tragic headcanon. This is 100% true to the characters. This 100% could've happened, and even part of it is real-- he never got to apologize or talk to her again. It was forever unresolved between father and daughter and... God. Emotions.

I wonder what happened when he found out she'd passed away
GhostWriter434's avatar
Probably something like this, but worse. The fact that he could not say goodbye to his daughter and left things unresolved is just as bad; that's something you never want to do with a relative before they pass away.

True. As they say "You never want to go to bed mad"

Believe me I know. My family is full of grudge holders
