I have seen a lot of things....a lot of people doing stupid things that just tick me off. Sometimes I don't even realize why I'm getting so mad about it... But right now, I know exactly why I'm getting so ticked.....the fandom of My Little Pony. I mean, a majority of it are good people that are down to earth....but this?!
Every fandom has people that are just flat out village idiots that never grew up and faced facts. People riot over sports games, they go into a state of self-harm and depression just because some girl on a MAKE-BELIEVE soap opera starts cheating on her husband of 12 years, and then there are the people that call themselves Bronies... The term, Brony is a term that people used to be proud to call themselves. But as of late, the name Brony has become a disgrace to the MLP fandom. The show My Little Pony is supposed to support and represent how friendship and happiness can be found in all things, and frankly, the fandom apparently hasn't been paying attention to the show like a true fan should...
Hasbro makes money off of it, which is one of the reasons it is still going strong. But the people that actually work on the show......the actors....the writers, animators, directors, etc. etc.; they pour their heart and soul in the show because they enjoy doing the show and they appreciate the loyal fans. But just because of ONE movie, they completely turn their backs on the cast and crew and think of their own interests and fantasies that they want to happen. Well I have news for every stupid fan that calls themselves Bronies and Pegasisters...the show isn't real. I know how most of them want it to be because a part of me wants it to be real too. But this isn't something to get so mad and ill about.
1) We as the fans do not own the show, nor any of the rights to it
(2) It isn't real (as if I can't stress that enough)
(3) The show is supposed to show us what Friendship is truly about, not whatever sick twisted fantasies we want to bend the show into.
It isn't our place to be mad because a "true" Brony is not some guy that sits in his mothers basement that wants to get mad because they just want to "experiment" with new ground in the MLP franchise. A "True" Brony, is a normal fan of the show that enjoys every concept of the show and is willing to give "new" ideas a try. And if being a Brony means being the biggest assholes (pardon on that, because I couldn't think of a better term) on the face of the earth because this pony isn't on the show anymore, or this pony has been made a princess, or whatever other excuse they can come up with....then I do not wish to be known as a Brony.
I want to be known as a "fan" of My Little Pony, no matter the twists, turns, or ideas that they adapt into the show. It took almost a year for me to realize just how sick and how messed up the fandom really is. When I first watched MLP, I was glad to be a brony, and I was proud to be one. But it is pricks like the ones that are causing all this "controversy" that make me ashamed to be a brony.
If by some chance the show and every other ideas that go along with it get canceled, then it was an amazing time I had. I will miss the show, but there won't be anything I could do about it. Memories will live on of the show and its impact that it had on me, and I thank Lauren Faust, Hasbro, Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Tabatha St. Germain, Nicole Oliver, Ashleigh Ball, Andrea Libman and all of the other cast and crew for creating these cherished memories. My Little Pony will live on in my mind and in my heart until the day I die, and no matter what may happen to the show or the franchise, I will be a "Real" Brony until the end. A Brony that loves the show, and is willing to accept whatever may happen whither it's good or bad. The ones that make such a big deal out of ideas like Equestria Girls, to me they aren't Bronies or Pegasisters. To me, they are a bunch of childish, self-centered, single-minded, douchebags that need to face facts and accept what will happen.
So I say...I hope the show will live on and bring more happy memories. But if it shouldn't....then I am satisfied with what I have seen.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart....
Please spread the word about this, and help us save MLP
