The Cost of Success by Pony-Berserker The Cost of Success by Pony-Berserker
For those who don't follow Season 6 - this comic is based on S6 E12 "Spice Up Your Life" and the yellow pony is Coriander, an owner of a restaurant in Canterlot that wasn't doing very well (until Rarity and Pinkie appeared).

Rarity ordered quite a lot of rearranging. I know she is an Element of Generosity but even she must have some limits to it. After all, the Quest Map shouldn't expect her to pay for everything she helps ponies with, right?

Thanks to Midnight--Blaze and VoidChicken for suggestions.

I never liked Rarity much but I didn't dislike her.
Over time I got used to her and the feeling about her got more positive.

And then there comes that episode...
I wished that Pinkie Pie would have done to her what she did in MisterDavey's "Smile".

That episode really dragged my opinion about her much into the negative.

Yeah, but after all, everything that she change backfire so Coriander should ask her to pay him for all things he buy under her advice. Rarity can only take credit for advertising management.

tbh, it doesn't matter if something you order sucks... if you know what you order. And Coriander knew that Rarity was turning his restaurant into the typical one. And he agreed. So he'd need to pay in real life :P

These panels depict three moments from a certain longer period of time. You can clearly assume she had her eyes open at some points.

About that description.. obviously the cutie map does in fact make every pony pay for their expenses and offer nothing in return because
1) It's a map, it doesn't give out free bits
2) MAGIC of friendship - you can solve any problem through magic/Friendship, if you couldn't then it's your fault and you have to subsidize the cost yourself

--
I can imagine Rarity would be able to sue the best, since she is the element of Generosity, she would be able to nitpick the monetary problems, lol

Well, maybe it's like that show with Gordon Ramsey (who's pony as you know made an appearance in that episode) where he helps restaurants by giving them a make-over (which as far as I know, isn't charged to the owners). Plus, she should have made it clear beforehand that it wasn't done for free. I don't blame Coriander for kicking her out, it's too late to make payment demands now. Also Rarity should know that without a contract, any lawsuit will be thrown out of court.

Rarity's expression kills it though!

  Well, so much for scrupulous, morals or integrity.  Perhaps Rarity should consider a position with the IRS.  Given her unbridled display of avarice, she would fit right in.

  I have now, thanks to your hyperlink.  Hey, you're addressing someone who by all accounts would be considered a walking anachronism in this day and age.  I mean, I've still never actually owned a computer.  And by that, I mean, in my entire life.  Thankfully I'm not a technophobe, just my contemporary lifestyle has never required a need for digital devices of any kind.  I actually have an admiration for the ingenuity of today's youth when it comes to utilizing modern digital technology.  Thanks for the vid, by the way.  LOL.  I nearly split my sides.
