Melancholy doesn't get you cupcakes by Senselesssquirrel Melancholy doesn't get you cupcakes by Senselesssquirrel
Cupcakes - they make you happier.

This whole comic thing started in school where I drawed a thumbnail like version of this here, then liking the idea and making a bigger paper sketch, scanning it in and well - here you see what happened next^^

Thank you for reading this.

I hope you enjoyed this :3

Edit: Holy buck this suddenly got pretty popular, almsot gave me an heart attack xD
This was featured in the equestria daily... erm... comic spotlight or something ( [link] ) ^^

Wow, I suddenly had a wave of nostalgia while reading this. The style, layout, and tone reminded me very much of some of the old Dark Horse Presents comics, specifically the issues where they would print groups of small independent introspective stories that didn't have anything to do with gunfights or aliens or super powers or anything like that.

Good job on that, if that was what you were aiming for.

I dunno, I really like the way it is in black and white^^
do you really think that colour would be better?

I guess it wouldn't be better really given the emotional element of the comic but hey what if you just coloured in Pinkie and then at the end when Twilight gains a positive outlook you could colour her. As if you were tracking their emotions.

Nothing will stop people complaining, not on youtube, not on facebook and certainly not on deviantart. But I'm glad you like my idea perhaps I could colour it for you?(it wouldn't be perfect I'm no proffessional), I imagine many people already have and just haven't told you. I would greatly enjoy a chance at a pseudo collaboration if you wouldn't mind of course.

If I were to colour it as I see fit and then to post it and send you a link whilst also crediting you would that be to your liking? Of course once you have seen it you can tell me whether or not you would prefer to host it and if I should remove it which I would not mind at all as long as you gave me an opinion.

Really fun style and an good messages, under the bit-too-douche-y Pinkie Pie.

Now, I know you've probably heard it before, and weren't actually writing Pinkie as a jerk, but, in all honesty, I felt that
A) it's OOC for Pinkie; I'd expect her to be like "That's silly, Twilight! Thinking about being small is boooooooooooooooring - you could be eating cupcakes and having BIG parties instead!" with her big ol' goofy Pinkie Pie smile,
B) while we can see that Twilight is getting herself depressed over being small, she could have just as easily been happily looking at the stars, and then would Pinkie's actions/words been right? I love looking at the stars and thinking about how much bigger everything is; it fascinates me greatly. I'd be a little unimpressed if a friend of mine sat down next to me and said, "Philosophy and thinking about the universe is stupid! Come party!"

Anyways, again, I do like it, barring my small issues with Pinkie here, and you're the artist/writer, so this is all your call and I have no right to tell you to change it; I just thought I'd point these little things, so take 'em or leave 'em at your discretion. :)

I certainly wont change it, for that would mean for me to denie my mistakes and I would not like that^^
But yeah, I could have done better, but thats what happens when I think about a comic while Im in school - no such thinking about things like spacing for text. Actually the conversation between them lasted longer, clearifying most of what is not so good and everything, also showing clearly that ts is depressed, not having fun looking at the stars.
Maybe Ill remake this at some point, maybe not, but it certainly gave me more experience with showing a message, and people like you make it possible to me to see what exactly I did wrong, where I could have worked more on etc.

thank you for that :)

This is totally off topic, but I just came from reading a long argument over on fimfiction, and I had to reread your reply about three times before I stopped reading it in a very angry tone. :XD:

I hear you: I've always had a problem with text in comics because I'm big into dialogue, and my writing is almost always dialogue heavy. It can be rather difficult to translate the right amount of it over to comics without the whole thing looking cluttered, or without cutting your dialogue down to 1/10 of what you planned.

I'm simply pleased to see a sensible (which is funny because of your username) artist/writer behind the work; I've grown tired of all these artists/writers that think they're above constructive criticism, and take every piece of advice like a personal attack.

Good day and good luck with more work. :)

Im really appreciate that you took your time and re read my text and did not just respond on a whim^^ I had many unecessary arguments with friends just because one of us interpreted the others text wrong :/

The problem on this comic was, that I created text and comic without having the other one at hand. It actually started in the brake in school, just as a thumbnail to get past the school time... and then it went overboard. xP

I am actually really glad about every advice I can grab, but its rarely the case that someone actually points out what was wrong, or says it in a matter that I may understand what the person is trying to tell me. You actually pointed out the things you didnt like in a fashion that I can see what I have to approve upon :)

And with that said, thank you for that nice little chat, its great to talk with a reasonable person on the internet! :)

She did not just went up on twilight and told her shes doing something stupid, just when she started saying how small we are, pinkie took action and stopped her. Twilight got herself in a cycle of selfdoubt and depression, Pinkie saw that and pulled her out^^

man, I really should have added another page for more text.

Pinkie decides your ideas are stupid.

NOW BOW TO YOUR PINK OVERLORD.

The greatness of the universe is no match for a couple of Pinkie Cupcakes.

Now all we need to do is offer some cupcakes to aliens and they will share all their technology with us.

What gets to me the most are these wonderful expressions. They really help out in bringing the characters to life! For a black and white comic I find everything really pleasing to look at and easy to distinguish. No troubles for me in following the layout. Thanks for sharing it!
