Friendship is Tragic Ep1 by T-Brony Friendship is Tragic Ep1 by T-Brony
Next

Time for something a little bit different - a fan comic starring some background ponies.

Twilight and her friends may be the best of friends, but they are not the only friends in Ponyville. While Twilight and her friends have friendship that is magical, this string of ponies have a friendship that is much less tenable. Which is why their adventures are titled My Little Pony: Friendship is Tragic.

A team effort with :iconsaphin:. We opted to use lesser known background ponies to avoid stepping on the toes of some of the more fan-preferred character interpretations of popular background ponies (like Derpy).

I'll be uploading frequently until i run out of my pre-made stash of comics. Afterwhich, update schedule will drop to weekly or so. So keep checking back!

All characters belong to Hasbro and the appropriate copyright owners (these are just our interpretations of existing background ponies).

Editing and sketch work by :iconsaphin:
Story and colouring by yours truly.

Comments appreciated :).

What are everyone's names?

Sparkler ("mane" character - purple unicorn), Linky (light blue earth pony), Moondancer (white unicorn), Cherry (pink earth pony) and Cloudkicker (light grey pegasus).

The names are revealed in the comic, but it's hard to do it artfully without it looking like pure exposition, so we opted to reveal gradually.

Since in this case, we don't know these guys, I think it wouldn't be bad to just blatantly make an exposition. Like a TV series opening or whatever, just show a still image of one character and name and description and useless information and stuff and stuff it all into one panel. XD
