I'm Okay... by julianwilbury I'm Okay... by julianwilbury
Nah, I’ll be fine, it takes more than this to knock me off guard after all I’ve been through…

Yeah things really haven't been too hot...so Derpy must suffer so I can have my vent art....

Support my work on Patreon!

EDIT: Didn't intend to submit this to any groups... but I dunno for vent art it holds up on its own and seems to illicit the intended emotions which is important for art...please don't make me regret submitting to a wider audience, okay?

ETA2: For the record, this wasn't painted with the whole "Derpy is being removed from the show" thing in mind...especially since I occasionally was thinking of how to buy the newe Derpy merch that was coming out later...just my own emotional baggage... you think you can survive all life's thrown at you after all the shit you've gotten for your medical problems? LIFE FINDS A NEW WAY TO SCREW WITH YOU
But of course I can't police feels SO IN THE END IT CAN MEAN WHATEVER YOU WANT.

It does hurt though, I wonder really really why she disappears. What they're doing is only an act of cowardice when tons of fans loving her is better than some a few haters. Or else what, an FCC call to remove her?

Certainly no argument here, I'd be lying if I didn't say the whole situation with Derpy on the show is confusing and not that promising. (Sadly I've seen people cite Derpygate as one of the moments the Brony fandom got "especially scary," in all honesty our backlash may have been more startling than the haters. Just trying to see it from Hasbro and co's perspective.)

Although, crud, Canada's Standards and Practices. One crew members on dA, :iconriddsorensen: (who, like many crew members, seem to have taken down the majority of their MLP-related work, sadly) posted an original draft of one of the old male ponies who was supposed to have a corncob pipe. A corncob pipe that POPPED POPCORN when he 'smoked' it, but he said they nixed it because PIPE. (I was actually suprised they got away with Pinkie's bubble pipe on MMMystery on the Friendship Express because of that.)

So yeah, apparently really stupid things have been pulled before. I guess if a corncob pipe that magically popped popcorn when you 'smoke' it can be considered dangerous to show to kids, a lazy-eyed pegasus could be seen as a threat... >.<;;;

Physically surviving something is one thing... but the mental pain that tags along... might as well tag along for the rest of your life... and if it isn't dealt with... it WILL continue to expand untill you have to face what we all have to face... death.

Be happy each day you live. Be happy that today isn't the day you lose. The day you lose your life... to yourself.


Proud survivor of depression right here, trying to be inspirational.

Yeh...Kind of gotten intimately acquainted with severe anxiety and depression over the last decade, not to mention the side effects of it and its medications. (I gotta tell you, people will judge you as "stupid" and/or "simple" if you act the slightest bit different. Big part of why I got so attached to Derpy in the first place, people will assume you're stupid for reasons as silly as a lazy eye or nervous, clumsy behaviour...*siigh* )

Erf. Sorry about that. Really I just want you to know I really, REALLY appreciate the comment/the time you took to write it/and the time you took to actually read the artist's comments. Just...thank you. I hope the skies remain clear throughout your travels.

Being different is something I've always been in comparison to the nitwits I used to call my ''classsmates''.

I am aware that I develop faster than them, I KNOW I am smarter than them and I see what others don't see... they hate me for it.

There was a time when I tried to act stupid or oblivious just to not SEEM smarter or superior to them. Turned out I just gave them another reason to hate me.

I tried a bunch of things but each and every one just resulted in me fueling their hatred.


Then, around the time I discovered FiM, I cracked and decided that I would stop giving so much of a damn what others think of me. Which quite a lot have made me what I am today.
The friendship lesson at the end of S1E6 ''Boast Buster'' fits well into this scenario.
Basically, it says that you should be proud of who you are or what you have and that friends and as well, other people will accept it as long as you don't forcefully overdo it.



Thank you for wishing well for me. I do hope that while I won't be able to stop you from hitting rock bottom, maybe, just maybe I was enough of a stepping stone to the very least prolong the event if it ever occurs at all.

One can only hope for the best.

While it some days isn't easy, but at least try, TRY to give the world a single spontaneous smile every day and you will ending up feeling a lot better.

The exact reason I hesitated submitting it to the MLP groups. ._.;; I don't really do a lot of sad/depressing/whatever art in general so I'm always afraid to post the rare ones worth showing.

Yap, here's hoping it's just a rumor and not reality...

Be incredibly ironic since so many countered by saying they actually planned on making a Derpy episode....just to have this happen instead ^^;

I believe this year was a phasing out of sorts, with the next season being when we never see her again, if what they said was true.
