For me, seeing you say that you had written it and were cool with it was enough, but I too was initially uncomfortable with the makeover fairy sketch, and so I sympathize with the poster's comment about it being "agonizing to watch".

In light of that, I want to express appreciation for the way you responded to that particular point in this post. There are certain creative types I follow whose work I really admire, but who sometimes say or do things that don't come across the way they intended, upsetting their fans. IMO said people often deal with feedback to that effect very badly. But where others have gotten huffy, sarcastic and dismissive with regard to the reception of their work, it was really refreshing to see you actually apologize, not because of the apology per se, but because it showed a willingness to step back, see things from another's perspective, and treat that perspective as valid. Further, you did so without compromising yourself, saying effectively, "Here was my intent. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing, but I see how this attempt could have come across differently and am sorry about the effect that had".

I guess my point is that I wish I saw that kind of response from more people, but it was nice to see it from someone! :)
