The VAs don’t concern me much, as I’m not really into the custom vids. The music is the same way: It’s not my kind of thing. I can understand the revulsion though. The voice is SO similar, but you can tell the differences and your brain is screaming out, “Something isn’t right about this!” Really takes away the joy from watching something.
You didn’t mention it, but I will say that I do enjoy some fics that are done. It’s enjoyable to read something that works with characters you enjoy in a world you like. If you don’t like the way things are going, you can just drop it and move on to something else (Some people can at least. I find it REALLY hard to stop reading something I’ve started, even if it changes in unpleasant ways.). They can be bad though. I hate the obsession with Cupcakes and Rainbow Factory. It’s just bad writing, and only popular because it’s popular. It’s the story equivalent of the Kardashians. There was a recent top story on FiMFiction about Pinkie Pie being raped by Trixie, Snips, and Snails. Why the fuck would you write that? Why is this popular? So yeah, some elements can be downright disturbing about the fandom.
If anyone were to ask why I was a brony though, I would tell them the reasons why I enjoy the show and fandom. If they brought up the stuff I dislike, I would just tell them I don’t have to like everything. It’s really up to the individual as to whether they associate with anything at all and why in the first place.
