Someone linked me to a clip where Fluttershy kills a bear.

That's metal.

Please. None of that stuff is nightmare-inducing. At all.

Right here V
None of that pussy shit is more horrifying than a 4 page slide-show of Luna bring raped in a guillotine by a Royal guard, said Guard finishing, then releasing the rope that held the blade at bay. Last panel is the guard still inside her, with her head bloodily severed.
what the fuck
have you been watching

I've stumbled upon worse Guru thanks to 4chan. No nightmares. Maybe you're just a pussy?

Being a pussy is subjective. Besides, I don't have the balls to go onto 4chan. I'd rather not burn my eyes out.

At least my avatar is badass, right?

8 Bit is right. Nothing pony related that I`ve seen or read is really that bad compared to what else is out there.

And yes, I have looked. >.>

MLP is like a black hole on Earth, none shall escape. lol
 
Re: What is with all of this "My little pony" stuff? (The unofficial official MLP Thr

Only a few of my friends are still resisting.

By that I mean they refuse to watch it. I told them if they watched and didn`t like I`d drop the subject, but they persist.

Short of beating them up and forcing them to watch it, any suggestions bronies?

Just become a religious group already.

Aye, I do take my Luciferianism seriously. No no brony religion for me. :p

I`ll just go with the beating them up idea then I guess. :/

I'm surprised how fast the brony fandom is growing.

Celestia is better than God. She's wise, powerful, stern yet easy-going, and pretty. :3
God is an old, balding, homophobic xenophobe with a penchant for killing everything because they didn't thank Him for the food they earned :V

Not even anime grew that fast, I don't think any fandom has grown this fast to this size. What's more other fandoms have shown a gradual decline and stagnation when reaching their numbers peak. The difference is there hasn't even been the slightest inclination of that with bronies and further more it's accelerating.

Basically uhm, all fandoms are going to get steamrolled number wise >:3

MLP fandom just has a lot going for it. People like MLP seriously, because it's good. People can like it ironically, because of it's past generations. It steamrolled the internet with memes. It's in a style that is ideal for all kinds of pony lipsynch projects, and has visual humour for animated gif type stuff. The original music is fairly good, and BGM isn't from a stock, which gives fans that much more to mess with. So many would-be haters are pony fans themselves. There really is nothing else that accomplishes this stuff all at once.

I don't know that it's going to steamroll all other fandoms, though. I think it just seems that way because no one really saw it coming, and so many still can't believe it.

Sorry I forgot to put in, "number wise".
A year ago the fandom had barely been born, now look at us! In a single year we grew to these numbers, imagine how many more of us will be here in another year.

Though I highly doubt the fandom's growth will be linear, there are only so many people who will watch it or even give it a shot. I think most fandoms likely have a massive boom the first year then slow down in growth.

Eh, fandoms grow sporadically. Anime grew fast and has stagnated, the thing keeping it going is naruto's popularity. Scifi grew slowly, but the bread and butter for the scifi fandom is the smaller subfandoms, such as the doctor who fans, star trek, star wars, etc.
The difference between bronies and other fandoms is that other fandoms have people that despise growing to become popular.
On the other hand bronies celebrate the rise in popularity, no other fandom has this! They are different because they celebrate their mainstream popularity.

Fair enough. However, based on how often people come into this thread and ask why people like it so much has decreased and almost stopped. I would say that the fandom probably won't grow that much more. Granted this thread is not an accurate indicator.

I think I understand.

You`re saying we need to launch a Brony Crusade?

True, none of us can predict the future, but you'll never know. CannonFodder is right in that the MLP fandom's celebration of popularity and acceptance is what's helping them to grow faster than the other fandoms before them. Like it or not, furries, there are some of us that want the furry fandom to expand and grow like this because 1) it'd be nice to have enough good publicity, and 2) it'd be awesome to see our creations get some potential for high-budget productions.

I'll admit, sometimes I cringe at the idea of our fandom reaching pop culture status (Disney pop music is one I hiss at), but is it really a bad thing to look forward to becoming mainstream on a basic level? Is it really that bad to look forward to a time where being a part of your fandom, whether you're a boy or girl, man or woman, wouldn't be seen as a sign of mental illness? If I remember correctly, Lauren Faust herself mentioned that she hoped MLP would serve as some proof that girl-oriented cartoons can be just as exciting and enjoyable as boy-oriented cartoons, and I hope so too.
