F is for Friendship by AleximusPrime F is for Friendship by AleximusPrime


Oh boy, what a huge comic! It's not as big as the "I'm Sorry" comic in terms of MB space though so hopefully it won't take ages to load.

For anyone who doesn't know me well enough just yet, that pony is my ponysona so it's my first comic about me.

And before anyone asks, yes, I did fail a test recently and it is not the first time I have. I've failed a lot of them and I'm not afraid to admit it. Living with Aspergers syndrome can be rough and it's not an uncommon thing for this to happen. Failing tests or papers or projects can be difficult, or it can be ultra depressing. Know that I am NOT depressed about this and I am not making some emo rant with this comic. This comic isn't really meant to help me so much as it's meant to help you cuz I know there are others who probably have been in this situation before.

I actually had this comic in mind about a year ago after I failed a test in another class but I just never got to it. I'm glad I waited cuz I've improved with drawing a lot more now plus I didn't know what my ponysona's cutie mark would be back then. I need to draw my ponysona more too, he's so huggable! :icondawwplz:

So I hope if any of you guys have ever been in a similar situation, or might be in one someday, that this will comfort you enough and remind you that you don't have to let one F- control your life. Just remember, that for every failure, there is always a friend there to comfort you...........even if it's a non-existent talking pink pony. :)

Also, if you are going to give a critique, please don't just go "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW!" cuz that's not a critique.

Vision: When you're always down in the dumps all cause of something that made you feel bad, there's always that one person that makes you want to smile. This picture proves it and the vision is phenomenal.

Originality: I like the originality put in this comic. You put a lot of work in making it and that makes me and a lot of others happy.

Technique: Your style never ceases to amaze me. I don't know why but it gets me hooked anytime I see it. Whether it's your ponysona or the cute Pinkie Pie, you nailed it to the max.

Impact: I identify a lot in this. I really do. I have Asperger's myself and I had trouble in school as well when I was a kid. There are times I failed and I know that even in the darkness, there will always be someone whose light will give ya some happiness.

I really great picture and one I feel you should show to everyone. For where you are always down, there will be somepony that will turn it upside down. Come on everypony, Smile Smile Smile!

Alex, this is really well-thought out. I loved the setup you made for the cute ending. The sorrow the first few frames of this comic had and then the curious buildup in the middle and the "daaaaww"-inducing ending.

It reminds me so much of myself. I'm having the exact same problem as you are having in college. People with Aspergers are very unique. I should know because I'm also one to have it. Whenever I have gotten a lousy grade in college, I also think of something reassuring, like Pinkie Pie.

Sometimes, however, Aspergers can help you with certain things. It has helped me a lot and sometimes not.

So yeah, the emotional passion was really gripping. Good work, my friend.

I know that feeling. I too recently failed a test and before that, I failed my watchers. After those two failures I felt like going to the nearest tavern and getting as drunk as possible. Don't worry I didn't actually do it, but I was still pretty damn depressed; But, I had ponies and Colbert to lighten my mood. But now my family and I have to deal with the recent government shutdown :no: so Pinkie would have a fair amount of difficulty reassuring me from that.

As a fellow Aspee, I've had my fair share of falls like this.

 

I'd have to say one of the worst was when I was doing a science project with another student.  I sorta forgot what the project was about, but I wasn't able to completely understand the work.  Needless to say my partner - whose name I'm not going to mention - got irritated with me and decided to work on it by himself, leaving me completely out of it. =(

 

As if it couldn't get worse, then the douchebag decided to throw me under the bus by making me present the project on presentation day by myself!  I had no idea what the project was about or where to even start, and the fact that I was suffering from a bit of stage freight didn't help in the least.

 

Thankfully my teacher let me just turn the work in when he found out what was going on.  We both passed, but he wasn't happy about what my partner did.

A lot of people seem to treat failure as anything but optional. In reality, a failure can be good in the end because you learn from it in some way and it can help you see what you are better at and what you are not.
