My idea is starring a tertiary character - my term for a pony that appears for a long time in an episode and is ignored - and has traditional art. On top of that, I want to place it in a later time, basically changing Equestria as a whole. I’d love to do it for me, but I’m worried I’ll be criticized if I have the character react wrong.
You know, my friend, now i’m really sorry about all that closed “Dark side” Tumblrs. They say Internet won’t forget anything, but not this time. Lil’ Jay, Windsweept, Kaira… Broken thing that i can’t fix. Well. Sad. Thanks for listen.//Знаешь, друг, я действительно жалею по поводу закрытия всех этих тумбелров “Темной стороны”. Легенда гласит: “В Интернете ничто не может пропасть бесследно”. Не в этот раз, к сожалению. Блоги Lil’ Jay’я, Windsweept, Kaira… Чем провинился последний, скажите мне? Черт. Сломанные вещи, которые я не могу починить. Печально. Спасибо, что выслушал.
PC: I did the best I could modifying the broken English into what I believe OP was trying to say. If not, my apologies. Here is a better translation of the confession. Thank you, vladnuke!
The only reason I cant help but want to draw for a blog is because after reading so many, I feel guilty not helping some of these stories.
I know they’re in their own little worlds and some of the more popular blogs would never accept my help or even acknowledge me sometimes. But I feel like if I could draw (or when) I’d at least be there, and that’s a lot more than I can do now.
I stumbled across this post about how this person was so “brave” for reporting a major pony ask blog just because they didn’t like it and they went out of their way to look for things that violated Tumblr’s ToS or whatever.
I am not the sort that is easily offended, but I was so furious that someone was policing Tumblr and abusing the system just to get rid of a blog they didn’t like that I went on this huge rant about how that was awful and how people are taking a kids cartoon entirely too seriously. I was a little apprehensive about actually posting what I said, since I’ve done this sort of thing before and I don’t think it’s ever ended well, but I did it and hoped my inbox wouldn’t be flooded with hate mail.
I winced when I noticed there was something in my inbox later that night. Much to my surprise, it was someone calling me a hero and saying they were going to leave the fandom until they read what I said.
It feels nice, knowing that you made that sort of impact on someone.
I would like to share the story of how I found the fandom:
Less than a week after the season 2 finale aired, I was browsing youtube and I kept noticing all these MLP videos. (At the time, I was of the opinion that bronies were just odd, but I wasn’t a hater at all.) Eventually, I saw this one video called Shed.Mov. I then said, “Huh, this looks like a parody, I’ll give it a look.” I found it disturbingly hilarious, but I didn’t quite get it completely. A couple days afterwards, I said to myself, “Ok, to hell with it, I’ll look at the show.” I was expecting to turn it off after 45 seconds. Those 45 seconds turned into ten minutes, those then became the two-part intro, which became the first season, and then the second season. Now I make fan-art, I follow many tumblrs, and I tuned in live to watch the season 3 premier. So, in short, Shed.mov made me a brony and I still follow the .mov series. Thank you Max Gilardi for .mov, thank you Hasbro for an epic show and thank you PonyConfessions for a place to share this stuff.
I find “sane” bronies to be more annoying than “rabid” bronies.
I’ve pretty much seen every side of the fandom by now, rabid bronies, normal bronies and the so-called sane fans, and from what I’ve seen, sure, rabid bronies can be extremely weird, but most of the time they keep that stuff to themselves and their other rabid friends, they mind their own businesses in their own way and within their websites.
But then, the sane ones on the other hand… they’ll constantly go out of their way to bash rabid bronies and do nothing but laugh at them and call them names. They keep complaining about them not “loving and tolerating” and yet they’re the ones who keeps attacking others.
Another thing I noticed is that they have the ever-lasting need to remind you that they’re, in fact, sane. With every single pony pic they reblog they just HAVE to tag it “I reblogged a pony BUT I’M A SANE FAN GUYS, DON’T UNFOLLOW ME DDDD::::” or “I drew a pony because they’re cute BUT IT’S NOT LIKE I’M OBSESSED, I’M A SANE FAN, DON’T CONFUSE ME WITH THE OTHER FREAKS, I’M SANEEEE” or, worst cases, even when they have their blogs filled with poni they criticize bronies who may seem “too obsessed” when they themselves do nothing but talk about poni as well. Oh the irony.
And as many may have noticed, the amount of blogs dedicated to bashing the fandom is ridiculous, and oh look! Who made those? Ah yeah, the sane fans. The ones who are supposed to be against all kinds of hate. Just… wow.
So long story short, the bullies here, the ones who keep looking for fights, attacking while preaching they hate quarrels or scandals, are the sane fans.
I mean, is it so hard to just let fans be fans in their own way instead of being aggressive to them and then claiming they are the bad ones? They’re doing exactly the same thing they’re supposed to be against of, I just don’t get it. They can’t fix whatever they don’t like by being an as*hole themselves.
Also, no one cares if you’re sane or not when you post ponies; you’re a mlp fan and that’s simply it. What in tarnation do you want to prove by constantly reminding everyone you’re “sane”? You’re not a special snowflake, just another fan like everyone else. So stop hating on people who might like the show a bit too much, you’re no worse than them with your “sanity”.
This isn’t fair to people who spent their time on high quality drawings and are ignored by people for bad ask blogs.
