    You know, when I first saw that pic, I didn't think that Pony had one eye. I mean, look at all the other colts; you can only see one eye on them too!I just thought that Pony on the right had a weirdly shaped head. And was balding to boot.

    Very interesting read. Sounds rather like Rarity to go accidentally insulting somepony like that. Come to think of it, that sounds like the plot for an episode.

    I'm happy this was written! Also, I dig the name "Silas Clops" – good use of pony-lingo plus pun.I enjoyed the fanfic too, except for the fact that Rarity sort of ended up shallow and stayed that way for the sake of Silas and Crystal. As she's my favorite pony, I felt a little sore. But I wouldn't mind reading more about Silas in the future. (Crystal Clear too!)Now has anyone written fanfic about that filly with the numbers on her neck from Suited for Success?

    For a short story that really showed some unexpected depth to me… mind you as cheesy as it sounds I have slight derp eyes as well as no sight in one eye so any Derpy fics etc or similar I always enjoy, easy to relate to? Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

    Dammit, I was writing a story about this error too. Mine had the premise that Nightmare Moon changed him into this as she fled Ponyville in the first episode. As he hides from the rest of the pony population (as the canon series progresses) he get Zecora to mix him a potion that creates a normal pony illusion. Unfortunately the potion fails if he gets anxious…

  111. Hi, author here! I am not good at Blogger.@Hoshi – Rarity being shallow was more or less intentional. Even after Dog and Pony Show cured me of Rarity-hate, I still see her as being, in the words of Lurks-No-More, well-intentioned but oblivious. I know a lot of people like that, sadly.@DJ Kat – I'm not entirely certain why I went against that. At least it's still pronounce the same!@Anonymous – Do not let one story stop you from writing your idea! It sounds completely different from mine and I'd love to see where you go with it!I'm glad no one seems irritated by the presence of Crystal, because I know the reputation of OCs on this site. I didn't set out to make her, I swear, she just happened. Thank you all for reading!

    Again, a good example of a fanfic, giving an anonymous b/g pony (and a flash hiccup at that) a name and a life. Only thing missing is the ending didn't resolve sufficiently. Is there any resolution between Dr Clops and Crystal? Has he realized she's crushed on him? And what is he going to do?As for Rarity coming across as shallow and staying that way, she often gives that first impression. I've heard that in several comments, how she "was a shallow bitch obsessed with her own appearance" until they saw "Suited for Success". Rarity is obsessive about her "glam" appearance, but she will pull back once she realizes she's actually hurting somebody.That said, Rarity can also be clueless. Remember "Sonic Rainboom"? Where she was so tripping on the adulation for her gossamer wings she didn't see the side effect on Dashie?
