Rainbow Tales: Fans are a Rarity by Narflarg Rainbow Tales: Fans are a Rarity by Narflarg
Rainbow Tales #9 Starring Rarity and an original character Chaos Bolt

This is a bash on how people always complain about how rarity isn't being generous in an episode. She doesn't deserve to have such criticism, but when Twilight Sparkle scientifically approaches a problem nobody says a thing. TL;DR BE NICE TO RARITY!

But this is based on how the stallion is taking each little thing seriously, then says, "I like Fluttershy anyways" And Fluttershy probably gets the exact same problem. (Fluttershy: Oh... Do you have paper and a pen?.. If that's okay with you...
Stallion: You want ME to get the supplies? That's not very kind!
Me: *facepalm*)

somepony greedy has hard time to be generous (and in countless episodes she shown she was kind of greedy a little like for the wedding flower toss for the most oblivious one) so i guess they try to represent the gap of difference wen she is manifesting generosity like if she manifest it more then one who is always generous (as trying 'harder' or something).


but yeaa, magic isn't scientific, so magic element being soo scientific is weird to xD

Which is why people can't expect everypony to CONSTANTLY be their element. Being generous doesn't mean that you give every last bit of yourself until there is nothing left. If she did that, then she couldn't be generous anymore. Some their virtues can be self-harmful or just plain annoying if they are used TO THE MAX.

I really, really like this comic series of yours! ^^ It's... cute, and well-written. The scenes you portray are funny and what I absolutely love is your peculiar drawing style: it is adorable! =)

And this strip in particular is genial and very enjoyable: the fact Rarity is my second favourite pony helps a lot! =D So... good work, keep up with it! ;)

Well, there is a visible improvement over your first comic.

But I must say that the lettering is confusing. putting speech bubbles on the left for the character who's on the right isn't really a good idea. I know the bubbles are colored, but still...
I'd suggest using "normal" white bubbles with black outlines and tails. Look, Chaos Bolt's colors don't look good in a speech bubble (it's a bit difficult to read).

Also, think of adding some highlights in their irises the next time you make a comic. It doesn't take a lot of time, but improves ponies' look a lot.

So, keep up the good job.

Thanks for the feed back, I was thinking that the only fix to the recurring bubble problem is the normal B&W, just wanted to look a little flashier. Not the best idea in retrospect...

Don't confuse generosity with blindly and selflessly giving away your belongings to just anyone. If you were to do that, in very short order you would have nothing, and you would have helped very little, not to mention screwed yourself out of a life. Rarity is generous when generosity is called upon. If you're actually in need of something and Rarity can give it, she will. But she has a life of her own - a thriving business that gives her to the freedom to pursue her art - and she has to keep herself in that business in order to be able to be generous in the future.

This comic illustrates very well the ludicrousness of the understanding some people have of the concept of "generosity".

Just because Rarity is the Element of Generosity doesn't necessarily mean she has to demonstrate constantly. Its not as easy an element to demonstrate as, say, Laughter or Honesty which are more spontaneous; Rarity needs an opportunity to give someone something in an appropriate situation.

Personally, I kind of like it when Rarity goes against her element. It shows that she's not perfect.

I think people forget that all though they are the bearers of the Elements, they aren't the embodiments of their elements. They are still normal ponies with their own weaknesses, fears and other personality traits. They aren't perfect godlike creatures by any means, and we don't want to be like that. Because, let's face it: If they acted and behaved in a way you EXPECTED from them ALL the time, they would become predictable, one-dimensional and boring!

People, having one personality trait does not exclude the existence of another. I mean, even the most generous person can be a little selfish once in a while. EVERYONE has to be sometimes, or else they would get exploited by their fellow friends and co-workers. In Rarity's case, if she just GAVE away her dresses, she would go out of business! She may be generous, but she isn't stupid!
