She seems concerned that if she were to reveal her reasons, people might take it the wrong way. She’s spoken well of us in the past, so it’s somewhat hasty to think that bronies were somehow the cause. Maybe she got tired of interference from Hasbro, or maybe there were other people around with whom she had trouble working. It’s all just wild speculation, but if she wants to keep it private, she certainly has the right to do so. Forget everything I just said and look to Jackal Lantern’s post below.

No. She stepped down from lead director immediately after season one. Pretty sure she quit before “brony” was even a thing. We need to just NOT ask her why she left. We’ve asked her before, she said a few things about it, people took it the wrong way, we need to just drop it. I’ll see if I can find her old post regarding this.

EDIT:
Here it is.

To quote, “Various circumstances with the production made it increasingly impossible for me to keep up the level of personal creative involvement and control that I had at the start of the series.”

People took this line wrong and thought Season Two might suck. Probably why she won’t say any more.

Faust is referring to the fact that she and Hasbro don’t have the same views on things.

I am not going to explain each side’s views. But lets just say that Hasbro is working on something else re: MLP.
They are not going to do any extreme or dramatic changes to the show. At least for now, but a few internal issues that they are working on will change some things.

Let’s just hope Lauren’s newest project is successful and she remains a consulting director for MLP. All we can do for her now is appreciate what she’s brought us, and throw money at her if we see her :)

We should make this happen.

Whenever a brony sees Faust, the first thing they should immediately start doing is throw paper money at her.

No showering her in change.

Change hurts.

@Dr. Greg

I can see why one can think Fausts departure had anything to do with us. Considering all the shenanigans the Brony community gets up to. But I’m sure Lauren also considers the great things we have accomplished as well. Plus she knows how much we love her.

Instead it’s more likely that Faust departure has more to do with her workplace, social life and other factors that are much more closely related to her on a personal level. The Bronies do not get anywhere near that level so its hard to imagine that after just two episodes we were able to shunt her out of her own job from across some YouTube comments and 4chan posts.

Lauren is a bit stronger than that.

I’m sure she has her reasons and they are far bigger reasons than us.

[edit]

I got mega-ninja’d

What Jackal and Ivan said, yea. They got it.


But I have to admit, if she ever did leave her project…which she worked so hard on…only to leave as soon as it starts, because of us…I would probably be all like:

The scariest question out of the whole Lauren Faust thing is: what will happen next?
Her new show… if I recall, the same fans of MLP are usually fans of her other shows too (PPG, Foster’s Home). I remember when PPG stopped, we flocked to Foster’s, and when Foster’s stopped, we waited, and jumped on to MLP: FIM.

Now with her new show… I know, we are the biggest fanbase of hers, greatly surpassing her other shows, but…
will… we just pack up and leave, like we did to PPG and Foster’s? Will in the near-future, bronyism will be a thing of the past? And nobody will remember the names of the Mane 6?
Will we become a LOST CIVILIZATION?


Thinking about it, seeing how we were ultra-pleased with Season 2 (references, references everywhere!), we can only hope that the current writers will continue to be as epic as they are, and Faust will remain a consultant.
But with people like Amy Keating Rodgers leaving… its scary.


Let’s have a pic with the ever-awesome Darth Vader and Applebloom.

Yeah, I’ve been there. I was just joking… it’s obvious she isn’t gonna quit. She just LOVES having her own personal brony army.

Also, POSTAN MOAR LUNA.

She fucking loves bronies.

No joke, she’s actually said that…

Hundreds of times. Twilightlicious was a joke she made for the bronies. She even sang it (I think), to humor us. She’s trolling the shit out of twitter with us, made the #twilightlicious hashtag, and posted borderline r34 of Twilight Sparkle.

SHE IS A BRONY, DAMNIT!

Aww, now you’re making me sad. But no, we won’t become a lost civilazation, last time I checked the Trekkie fandom was still living. So can we please get off the topic of the crew leaving? It’s making Pinkie and me sad.

I’m watching Korra and MLP at the same time.

I can watch Super Best Friends Forever (that’s her new project, right? Or is it Galaxy Girls) as well.

Beyond that…

LOL.

Reminds me of when Season One ended. Everyone was like OH CELESTIA, DON’T LET IT END!

And now look where we are. WE ARE STRONGER THAN EVER. The show will never end. The cast will all be heads in jars like on Futurama, still working on the show for the citizens of Percei VI after the Earth gets destroyed by Discord escaping through the Equestrian Innovations portal.

Hey, guise…

We’re freaking out too early. Way too early. Miss Faust was limited after season 1, and it didn’t change the show much, if at all in my opinion. I’m sure we’ve nothing to worry about.

@Engie
Well, we welcomed Zarathh to the forums, welcomed back Alcarran, and had a sad moment when we saw a post from Mrs. Lauren Faust, regarding her leaving MLP.
But we then cheered ourselves up and are expecting a party thread.
Oh, and BTW, you CAN read Joe Amythyst’s fic, but only at you’re own risk…
trust me, you’re gonna be spitting what ever liquid’s in your mouth all over the screen at the end of part 2…

Well damn, I gotta say I really respect Faust for seeing things through for so long even though she was so unhappy with her circumstances.

Still though, that is kind of a bummer. And no, it doesn’t sound like we had anything to do with it. Don’t forget that she’s always spoken very highly of bronies, even despite a couple of chucklefucks telling her about the Rule 34. In fact I’d say it seems like we make her pretty happy and I’m sure we’ll continue to in supporting her future projects.

No worries. Just pony.
