you forgot about the part where a bunch of them think they're better than/different from furries, even though, you know, before FiM, all hardcore mlp fans were in the furry fandom.

my comment only applies to certain bronies. x3

Oh, those very special ones we all know and love? :3

Considering Onta is *coughDoxycough* I think we can safely assume MLP is an umbrella fandom that drags artists in kicking and screaming and won't let them escape after they've drawn a few pony pics.

i just consider brony to be a hipster offshoot of furry, for people who want to try to pretend like they're "20% too cool for furry"
- at least when considering the bronies who claim they are 'not a furry'

the ones who are both furry and brony, are just embracing the full range this fandom offers, and thats their preference and choice.

but they all catch the yiffilis and murrpes in the end. :P

as for onta, they all snap eventually? xD

Anyone who seriously uses the 20% cooler meme deserves to be shot with a nerf gun.

Just look at Rarity's face when Dash says it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSbXGsysAAk

yeah even i was kidding, felt like injecting that instead of just "too cool for furry"

"I hate this popular thing, am I cool yet?"

"No, sorry, kid."

"i was a hipster before it was cool :( "

Random thought: If so many bronies aren't furry, why don't we see more shaven pony porn?

;)

i refer to the ones who 'claim' that they are brony, but not furry, but the fact is, star trek is a subgenre of the sci-fi fandom, gundam wing is a subgenre of the anime fandom, and my little pony is a subgenre of the furry fandom, or if you want to use a fancy word for it, anthropomorphics. some try to argue 'the ponies are feral'. to which i say "can they talk? do they consistantly exhibit body language, behaviors, and mannerisms easily identifyable by humans? are their thought processes intelliegent? yes? good. because that's the textbook definition of anthropomorphic!"

for the record, im not a brony and im not a huge fan of the brony fad, but im not a hater of bronies, either. i only hate stupidity. :3

Actually, in my experience, a lot of steps in that cycle were missed.

Which ones did you skip over? I'm sure there's an exception to every rule.

I was referring to the other fans. Unfortunately, when the fans got stupid, I drifted away from the series. From what I saw, it went:

Show gets made

Show gets popular

Fans establish community

Show gets a second season

Fans get upset

Fans now hate the TV show

When the second season rolled around, it was like half of the fandom suddenly went Yandere or something and wanted to flip its shit over EVERY detail, particularly ones that contradicted their own personal canons. I didn't want to deal with their shit, and ultimately that caused me to drift away from MLP entirely.

Oh, wait, I know the perfect TVtropes page for that

But yeah I know what you mean, I disliked some episodes but not all of them. I just personally felt like the writing was stronger in Season 1! When Faust and Rob Renzetti left, Hasbro made a BIG mistake.

the whole thing with butthurt companies and DMCAs happens all the time with every fandom I've ever seen.  Squaresoft is particularly nasty about it, IIRC.

I actually kinda liked ponies before FiM. I remember watching it when I was like...a little kid. Maybe 10 or something. o_o I wonder if that means I'm a bronie.
ButtercupSaiyan

They call female bronies phonies ;)

No, just kidding, the term is pegasister. I prefer the phrase "Internet cartoon horse people" it's very non-discriminatory, don't you think? No one feels left out and everyone can love ponies equally.

I call them "gronies", as I think that "pegasister" could possibly be termed as sexist towards a certain percentage :o

I'd be an arse and ask "But what if they prefer alicorns, zebras, Earth Ponies, or Crystal ponies" but I my tummy hurts too much for the silly. @.@
ButtercupSaiyan
5 years, 5 months ago
Aww, I hope your tummy feels better soon.

Frankly, the dragons are one of my favorite MLP races. No wonder I love Discord so much.
Incaros

Dragons do tend to be neat. I once found a book about dragons. And...had a character some what based on the D&D Red dragon Diciple class. X3 Loosely.

Exaggerative claim is exaggerative :o
I've never come across any brony I know of whose had this thought process, and I don't think I'm crazy enough to believe such a thought process either :o Is there something wrong with me?

I'm a casual Brony. I like the show and will watch ones I've missed via-youtube, but I don't buy the merchandise or ramble about the show with non-bronies (and sneak away from the overwhelmingly creepy ones).

Though, Let's see a thought process of another, dissimilar show.

Invader Zim.

Show gets made

Show gets popular fast because of its unique mode of humor (for its time), style, and characters

Fans establish rudimentary community

Show gets a second season

The more hardcore fans become more apparent, and begin making trends for a few  (shirts, Gir Cosplay in conventions, plushes, reciting lines)

Casual fans remain liking the show

The more extreme fans make slash pics of Zim and Dib... or OCs

Network execs start messing with the show's air time because they can (or new show)

Creator begins to despise his new, and exponentially-annoying/embarrassing fanbase, shows lack of consistent productivity because of that and other reasons, and is fired and we never see the remainder of Season 2 until years later, on Nicktoons (and on DVD).

Hardcore fans still make slash pic of Zim and Dib... or OCs

Not saying this is accurate, but this is my surmise of the rise and fall.
ButtercupSaiyan

Oh, dude, you're right. And I have like one pic of Gir in my gallery and I never even got to the episode with Tak yet. That's another great example of how fandoms and greedy corporate cartoon industry ruined a good thing they had going for the sake of money.

Well, I follow Jhonen Vasquez on Twitter and his Tumblr too so I have some idea of what you mean. I didn't watch it all happen but I saw the results of it. Mr. Vasquez won't even talk to me on Twitter, despite me being a fellow animator, and I have some idea of why...

https://twitter.com/JhonenV

Look at how many followers he has. I only have 1140 or so and of those, maybe only 100 people talk to me actively. https://twitter.com/AshaCoulter

Lauren Faust has 50,000 followers. 50,000. 50,000. https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye
