Oh c'mon, Sunburst, even I would've gotten a clue, there! :P

At least Starlight isn't downing cartons of the stuff like Rarity.  Not yet, anyway.

Wow pretty big slap in the face for Starlight. Also "oat flavored ice cream"? Come on, I know you find Starlight bland AF but isn't that a bit (and your comment on Sunburst making a smart choice/having "good taste" in mares) on the nose?

I know this is suppose to be a joke, but I can't help but feel that this is less "for the lols" and more subtly (more or less) projecting thus coming off as low key mean spirited

I couldn't come up with better flavour, honestly I have no idea how oat tastes, so I can't tell much in that regard.
Right, apparently Starlight must be treated like an egg, otherwise it's considered pure hatin' :P

You joke, but that kind of stab is something that a hater would make on their more "nicer" days
Also as far as flavors, I dunno. I think if you did what the show does when Rarity goes on her ice cream binge eating and just have it vanilla I think the joke would've worked regardless. I didn't really think that making up a flavor really added anything. Like I said things like hay and oats aren't in the ponies sweets. Also I tasted oats, they have very little to no flavor. 

Ok fine, I admit it. I took it the wrong way. Again...

Well, I know the solution: No Starlight, no controversy, everyone wins. I can promise you I will do my best to not include Starlight in any project I do, that way we will avoid such awkward situations. I'm not even being sarcastic, I'm being 100% honest here. I mean it's not like I'm that desperate to draw her, I just use any character I have idea for - even though that paticular comic wasn't written by me.

Whoa hold on a second there pal. I may not like your opinion of Starlight, but don't let me dictate what you should and shouldn't draw. I mean why should you? I'm just a nobody artist here who has the tendency to have unpopular opinions (which is probably why I am so unpopular. I've been here on DA for 7 years and only have a little more than 200 watchers. You have over 4,000 and have been here about the same amount of time! Don't listen to me because lets face it, my opinion doesn't matter. I'm starting to understand that as more time goes on. 

Look, I'm sorry I commented in the first place. I wasn't having a good day at all and I was a little triggered by it due to said bad mood. I was taking it out on you and that wasn't right. You're a nice guy and take what I say with a grain of salt and even humor. I've probably said that I won't comment on your stuff again, but I mean it this time. So much so that it's a promise. I'm a man of my word, so don't worry about me rearing my ugly head. That's the true solution because I'm literally the only one who doesn't like your jabs at her (or anyone else's jabs at her for that matter), so I'll just back off. Just keep doing what you're doing, because everyone else likes it if the amount of watchers and faves are anything to go by. The numbers don't lie.

Opinion is an opinion - don't sell your own short by saying it's "unpopular" and have more faith, when people try to bring you down by saying your opinion is "unpopular one" it just shows lack of argument on their side. Trust me, I'm often person of "unpopular" tastes myself so I can relate.
Technically I've been for 9years, I have different account but when joined MLP community I created another - closet brony thing - so this one is few years younger.
Still, my original one was pretty obscure especially comparing to my current SMP account.

 Also, I would hate for you to just prohibit yourself from commenting, it's your freedom just as mine, so please don't limit yourself! From what I gather we're bit similar in personalities, so I can imagine you might have a bit of short fuse and act upon emotions - I'm wired that way myself. The way I see it we must simply try to not get our emotions to get the better of us.


Also, I apologize for my behavior as well. I'm at fault here too.

Huh. I guess we're more similar than I thought. Still, I shouldn't have commented. But lets just put all this behind us. 

What are you apologizing for though and how are you at fault here? You didn't do anything. You didn't even respond in a nasty way

I wouldn't worry about it. I love Starlight and I found this comic hilarious. I feel the joke is mostly just how literally Sunburst takes Star's words rather than picking up on the obvious hints :)
Comic writers tend to be silly even in the comments. I've found normally when I thought a character I liked was being insulted it's just the writers being playful with a character they like. I think the reason Star's eating oat flavoured Ice-cream is because she's a horse. 
If in doubt if an artist is being mean just ask if that was the intent and the artist will probably turn out to be super-friendly :)
(And if there not just spend your time on better artists" XD)

I'd probably believe you more if I didn't already know that the artist had made no secret into not liking Starlight at all. He doesn't hate her but she's said that he finds her super bland and has no chemistry with any other character and can't hold an episode on her own. That and from what I can tell, the story idea was Sunburst actually knowing what Starlight was talking about and takes her with him. He blatantly admitted to tweaking the ending. 

I know oats and what not are what horses eat but it's been clearly established that sweets in Equestria are exactly the same as they are in the real world. Not a single grain, oat, or hay was ever implied to be an ingredient. The only things that are substituted are burgers and hot dogs. Because, you know, they can't eat meat. Hay fries are a weird exception because fries are just fried sliced potatoes which are vegetables. so that's odd. But my point still stays valid. Oat flavored ice cream is not a thing and it's clearly a subtle dig at her. Trust me, I know subtle digs when I see them. Like Fanboy from Freakazoid 

To be honest I never would've seen this if it wasn't in a Starlight thread. To be fair, the dude just wanted to make fun of Sunburst and how oblivious he is with Starlight and had a few others. But unlike the other comics he posted, I didn't really find this one funny. Don't mean to offend the artist but I just don't.

Sunburst. Subtle.

Name two things that don't belong in the same sentence.

Starlight just needs a club and a bag to let out her inner cave pony, and drag her mate back to her cave.
