Goodbye Derpy Hooves Page 1 by Saphin Goodbye Derpy Hooves Page 1 by Saphin
Couple things to note, I'm colour blind and VERY busy, so this will probably NEVER be coloured by me.

[RANT]
The worst part of any show is the fans. I've always said this. But seeing the Brony fandom made me think "maybe that's not always true." The Brony fandom seemed to be about being friendly and kind to each other. Accepting those who don't "fit the mold" as it were. Just being loving people in general.

A good message to send ANYONE.

But lately they are some people who just don't want to sit quietly and get along.

I know it's not representative of the Brony community as a whole, and rather a small collective of loud opinions that pop up. But people viewing anything from the outside tend to see ONLY the negative. And you have to keep that in mind when you want to represent something.

I've always been proud to be a Brony but lately I feel like it something I have to defend by saying "Yeah, but not EVERYONE feels like that!" The fandom is CONSANTLY biting the hand that feeds it! I remember when the Equestria Girls parody was aired. People were upset that they pronounced the 3 in DJ-PON-3's name! Why!? Why can't you just be happy they acknowledge us and actually LIKE us!

They never HAD to make Derpy's eyes funny. They never HAD to put in ANY shout outs! The people who work on the show are doing something brilliant and all people can do is complain that it doesn't fit their mold of "perfect."

[EDIT]
So Hasbro has confirmed that Derpy Hooves will STAY Derpy Hooves! Woot woot!

Can't say how overjoyed I am about this! A few people have been bringing it up to me and I feel I should at least acknowledge the information they're passing on.

Now the hard part for Ms. Hooves...is that she has to wear...a fake smile...EVERY DAY...to hide the awful scars...that have pierced her so.

I feel the need to cry when I see this and all of these other Save Derpy Hooves campaigns. It's such a heart-breaking event.

Yeah, its a pretty sad affair overall. I decided to draw these to calm myself, its like, my own form of therapy/protest.

GOOD NEWS!!
Hasbro's marketing department, flooded with emails about Derpy, eventually released a reply: "We have no plans to remove or rename Derpy"

Haha, yes so I've heard!

I'm a little slow on the upkeep. I should probably amend an edit to these

At first I thought this IS a fanart to this fanfic becasue of the nursery rhyme/lullaby (English is not my native language, so I thought that the author of the fanfic also wrote this rhyme)

Nope, I did not come up with the nursery rhyme. I didn't even come up with the idea of having Derpy sing the song to Dinky. I was inspired by this: [link]

Ohmygosh, this is so sad!DD:

Yes, this whole Derpy debate or whatever is stupid. I don't think Derpy is portrayed as a disabled at all!! Nor is "derp" another name for "disabled"! Really, WE give her the name Derpy Hooves, but when Rainbow Dash calls her that, everyone suddenly gets all offended?!

This whole conflict about Derpy's name is stupid.
WE, the bronies. Created Derpy, we gave her a personality and a family.
If the animators feel like they have to remove Derpy's name, or her eyes, it won't matter.
For me...
The blonde maned, grey coated Pegasus with the 'bubbles' Cutie mark, will ALWAYS be Derpy! :D

Wow, this comic is heartpinchingly sad. Though, interesting premise, it'd be interesting to see if you took this anywhere.
If I may stir up the hive hear... I agree with you.
The brony fandom is just like any other fandom, and the noisiest people gets the most attention. "Love and Tolerance" isn't practiced anywhere -near- often or well enough.

But with that, please keep drawing and practising your art!

Thanks for the comment! I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with this other than the 3 pages it already is...

Anyways, Thanks for the feedback!
