Everything I thought I’d hate about the show have been features I’ve ended up loving. Some examples being: Rarity, since shes the fussiest, prissiest pony I thought she’d annoy me, she’s now my favourite character in the show. The Cutie Mark Crusaders, I’m not usually a fan of kids so I couldn’t see myself liking them, however I now always look forward to their episodes. The songs, the idea of technicolour ponies singing about love and friendship was enough to turn my stomach, however now I find myself humming the songs all day long. Terms like ‘Everypony’ and ‘Somepony’, it’s understandable to think these terms would wear thin very quickly. However I know love them, they really add some originality to the show (not that it really needs anymore than it has) and I’ve had to stop myself saying them in front of my mates. Finally, Derpy. I used to dislike Derpy, however recently, and I’m talking mere weeks ago, I came to realise that it is remarkable how the fandom has fleshed her character out without any help from the show. She’s sort of our symbol, and I can’t help but love her because of them.
I love MLP: FiM, but I could never consider myself a brony (or “pegasister”).
This fandom is just so big and so intense and so involved, I wouldn’t even know where to start. I feel like I’d need a guide. And then there’s all the stuff with the background ponies. Stuff like Derpy tracking is okay, but I couldn’t possibly keep up with all the personalities assigned to ponies we’ve seen once or twice. I just don’t have the energy.
I hope Derpy continues to not be in season 3 so the fandom won’t explode on how ‘omg they actually listen to what we want omg!’
Whenever I see her my brain goes all stupid and my heart starts racing, I just can’t stop it.
I just wanna hug her and kiss her and play games with her while cuddling on the couch. Just thinking about it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
And it makes me feel tension and grief inside knowing that I’ll never have a chance with her. She’s a drawing and I’m a real person. That, added with the fact that she’s gonna end up dating Ditzy Doo (Derpy) is just too much for me to bear. I guess the reason for that is, well, I want her. More than anything (except for the end of war and ignoramus propaganda) I want to have her, and for her to have me.
God, that sounds so pretentious.
I suppose, I’m blinded by her beauty and personality that I can’t see the reality of the situation at hand. Well, I can, it’s just that I don’t want to. And that’s not fair either is it?
So, I dunno, I’m probably too young for this whole romance thing and at the end of the day I’m another hopeless romantic trapped in a cesspool of despair.
All I can say, from deep from my heart is this:
No, I don’t like Trixie, or Fluttershy, or Woona. No, I don’t ship Dr. WhoovesxDerpy or BonBonxLyra or SpikexRarity. Nope, I don’t hate older gens or Gilda. I don’t think that Vinyl Scratch’s eyes are red (they’re magenta, damnit) or that Dinky is Derpy’s daughter (give me a proof, okay?). And I don’t give a damn about FluttershyxBigMac ship, it’s unrealistic anyway
To sum it up. Stop shoving down our throats all your mainstream stuff! I don’t hate but I don’t support it either. There is nothing bad with liking it but some people don’t think like the majority of fans. And it’s ok too
I like Doctor Whooves, but I really don’t think he’d take Derpy as a companion.I know bronies will exterminate me for not worshipping Derpy, but I can’t see how someone so clumsy would be able to go around with him.
I’ve always been bothered by the Derpy x Doctor Whooves ship, mostly because I don’t think the Doctor should ever be falling in love with his companions. He never did in the classic series, but for some reason he did in the 8th Doctor movie, and then RTD just continued that. In fact, that’s why I think Amy and Rory are my favorite companion in the new DW so far, because they did a good job defeating that tradition.
