I don't know about 'yall, but that redemption thing at the end of Equestria Girls was just horrible. If it were up to me it would have been something like this. Now I'm not much of a comic artist, but I hope I conveyed the idea well enough.
EDIT: I am frequently getting the comment: The chains are too dark. Or This would be better without the chains. Or I don't think the chains are appropriate. Now, I'm not really a good person to say what is or is not appropriate, but are you guys seriously being irked by chains? CHAINS? It's a commonly used restraining device. You know those links between hand cuffs? CHAINS. I'm not about to judge any of you, but I just don't understand how this would be considered inappropriate.
The second panel is set up to be DARK and MOODY to lead up to the emotional aspect of the following panels. I'm glad some of you are getting that dark feeling but I can't help but find it silly to be off put by chains. How would you have me restrain her? Word of mouth? Regular jail bars? This isn't a question of morality, but one of restraining a potent magic user. A former student of Celestia.
Also it isn't explicitly stated but she is only in there for a few hours before they come in. You guys are letting your imagination over react
Again I'm just a little confused.
