Ok, i couldnt stop thinki about this one of spike either, i measn again, your styles better than the shows, and he i very epix in everyway (and the only non pony to be in the top ten) so here is my review of this one.
First i was actually kind of mad at you for making him cry (well drawing him cry) but now i see it was for a diffrent reason. The agoney alone of this piece made me want to cry for help, i felt so bad for him.
But you did a fantasitc job and for that spike will always be remebered for it.
That was easily my least favorite S1 episode, possibly even my least favorite overall. At a point in the series when Spike was easily my least favorite character, this story did him absolutely now favors. Fortunately, season 2 came around with some genuinely great Spike-centric episodes ("Secret to my Excess" ranks as one of my personal favorites).
Thank you so much. It's been murder trying to find a good picture, and I think this one is perfect. If you're interested in seeing the story for yourself it's on FIMFiction.net under the name "A Bittersweet Treat."
