Love Is For the Weak by Pony-Berserker Love Is For the Weak by Pony-Berserker
Still managed to upload it on St. Valentine's Day! This comic was inspired by a savage quote on love by Rick Sanchez of "Rick and Morty" - it's almost directly used in panel 2 (and that's one of the reasons why I used Ricj and Morty stylization in this comic). The rest of Twilight's rant is my extension of the idea, mixed with deconstruction of MLP's magic of love.... and real life love as well. To be honest, this comic feels cathartic to me as I'm a lonely loner single and I need to be convinced that being single is actually quite a good thing if you look at it the right way so I don't end up being a frustrated lonely loner. Also, family pressure to find a girlfriend is always present so yeah... 

"Patreon" OC's featured in Panel 1 are GrandMoffPony's Slipstream, Magello's Southern Comfort, ThePonyStark's Silver Sickle and ChristaMactire's Gemini.

I used this Rick and Morty style in one of my previous comics  Intestinal Fortitude by Pony-Berserker Also, I made a pro-love/feels "counterpart"  Hypocrite That You Are by Pony-Berserker

MLP and its characters belong to Hasbro. If you translate or repost, please do it outside of DA. 15 Feb 2018

Do you like my works? Consider supporting me on Patreon! Every bit counts! Or at least throw me a DA watch. That's nice and doesn't cost you anything!

If it's just based on hormones it's not love, it's lust. Love isn't a feeling, it's a choice. That being said...

Biased choice based on the strength of initial lust.

That's only because people are evil and incapable of true love.

Twilight's right. Cadence would be great at breeding animals! And as a bonus, she could make them breed each other, too!

Wow Twilight. She had a nice life, your brother was actually getting some. I’m guessing Cadence either turns Evil or kills herself. I’m a dick and know truths like that, but as far as I’m concerned... you’re a piece of shit. Yeah that’s right, and I can prove it mathematically. Hold on, let me get a blackboard I’ve been wanting to do this.

We have a got issue in that while it is a chemical reaction. The part of the brain associated with the desire to breed known as lust and the part of the brain associated with love are actually separate.

Two different parts of the brain light up for each emotion and you can have one without the other as humans have evolved past a lot of the things that make us comparable to animals.

In mature it' the same but in humans they actually are separate.

Actually, Twilight, Princess Cadance only makes the world go round. Imagine if Princess Cadance did not force the ponies to love, ponies might be extinct, and you may never be born...

Love would work and works without her as well (it's canon - Big Mac fell in love without Cadance's help) - so she is only meddling with natural ways rather than making the world go round. She's an unholy mistake.

"I'm a lonely loner single and I need to be convinced that being single is actually quite a good thing if you look at it the right way so I don't end up being a frustrated lonely loner."

That could have easily been written by me :D.

Good job Twilight you just sent an emotionally unstable alicorn down the path of becoming a dictator.

Emoticon - Twilight Sparkle Hmmm And leave her destroying the lives of ponies every where?

Well ... yes. The Crystal empire sits on top of the largest emotion control device on the planet and who do you think has the codes to use it. I can tell you it's not your brother.

MLP Twilight Sparkle (Unamused) Plz Well the @#% was going to die someday might as well be now. (CLICK CLICK) (teleport sound)

Well there goes the planet. Wonder how Sunset is doing.

Though that being said, there is a favorite comic of mine that I think presents a good counterarguement to the whole "love is just chemicals" idea: Link

But of course, interpret that how you will. ;)

Also, there are loads of chemical reactions going on in our body. The pain comparison is not a counterargument to anything stated by Rick Sanchez, nihilists or this comic.
PS: Funnily enough, both "love" and pain fade away over time :V

Never said it wasn't chemicals, just that there's more to it than that. It may be driven by chemicals, but their still both emotions (of a sort) that one feels and choose how to act upon next.

That said, maybe counterargument was the wrong word for me to use...regardless, I don't think it's that simple to just shrug off love as "mere chemicals"...it does feel to me like it cheapens and oversimplifies the whole concept undeservingly.

But that's just me. :)

Eh, if anything, the comic you linked actually only proves Twilight/Rick's point about love... And your comic presents a false analogy anyway. Its author tried to be clever but missed the point... maybe on purpose, though. If one had to make pain akin to love, then pain would be caused by some sort of "destiny" and you'd try to maintain pain as long as possible in belief it makes your life better and fulfilled.
