How To Identify Trixie by Pony-Berserker How To Identify Trixie by Pony-Berserker
This comic is a monthly Patreon reward for Justin Blum, one of my Patreon supporters.
The comic features Cobalt - one of Justin's OC's - who happens to be similar to Trixie. Being similar to a canon character usually brings more troubles than benefits...
Justin wanted a picture about similarity between his OC and Trixie because he got some harsh treatment for this fact. This is some sort of issue in the fandom that certain 'fans' become enraged upon seeing an 'OC' more or less similar to any canon character. 
So, after thorough thinking and after scratching some other ideas, me and Midnight--Blaze came up with this comic.

OC's who appear in the background of Panel 1 (from left):
:bulletblack:  Midnight Blaze who belongs to :iconmidnight--blaze:- co-writer of this story.
:bulletorange: Southern Comfort who belongs to :iconmagello: - one of my Patreon supporters.
:bulletyellow: Longhaul who belongs to :iconmrposslq: - one of myPatreon supporters

MLP and its characters belong to Hasbro. OC's belong to their respective owners. If you repost or translate, please don't post it on Deviantart, thank you. 22-06-2015 EQD comic post.
If you enjoy my works, you might want to join the crowd and support me on Patreon. Every bit counts!

I forget Trix-- I mean Cobalt is a guy half the time. His cutie mark doesn't really help him at all. Cutie Marks represents their talents, not names. Poor sap.Laughing my ass off!

I know why Trixie needs to make otherponies think she is not herself. As the plaque in Mayor Mare's office says "PAY TAXES OR DIE"   well done!

Actually the first sign is that 'Not-Trixie' isn't abusing First/Third Person Narrative like the real Trixie does when referring to herself.

And then the real Trixie gets the bill, for no one can hide from the evil that is the IRS. Just ask Al Capone.

You don't have to identify Trixie, she'll just let everyone know she's the Great and Poweful Trixie.

I got some kind of weird Monty Python vibe from this comic as if it was one of their weird sketches, such how not to be seen.

This was good. This was very, very good. :D

And it brings to mind something the naysayers seem to forget--with so many canon characters out there, and so many designs shared and rearranged among them, it can be hard, sometimes, to give your OC a design that isn't similar to established canon.... and when you accomplish that, you run the risk of a different group of naysayers outing it as a "Mary Sue" because it's "too different."
Some people will never be satisfied, I tell ya. :roll: Sometimes it's best to just love your own design the way it is before you worry about what other people think.

To be honest, I still find Cobalt too similar to Trixie for my taste, but the comic is still funny.

Ha ha.

Actually, you can differentiate the real Trixie by looking at these 2 points:

-Trixie's horn pointed more to the top than other unicorn. This is possibly due to wearing that witch hat for too long.
-Trixie is left hooved
