Okay, I really didn’t want to talk about this anymore. But I really couldn’t help myself.
I’ve been saving this one for too long, and I think I will just fell exponentially worse the longer I keep this for myself.
Let’s begin with a single question. Just so you guys know already what I’m talking about:
“So, have you seen Derpy anywhere in Season 3?”
Before you answer it, I want to say a few things.
Since the beginning, I always knew that there was no chances of her ever coming back after the incident that took her out of the show.
During season 3, my expectations turned out to be correct.
I don’t remember much of my earlier post, regarding several negative predictions towards Derpy’s future. But I remember most of the topics.
Remember when I said that I expected her to vanish completely during the season, and you guys didn’t believe me?
Well, SHE JUST DID. Now what?!
Also, I remember some of you saying that she was found in 3 episodes already.
I have 2 things to say about this:
FIRST: 3 out of 13 is not a big deal.
SECOND: It wasn’t her.
If you look closely, you’ll see clear differences from her original body in the first 2 appearances.
And the third one, which I consider to be the worst, can also be considered her FOURTH one, if
you look at the other side of the screen.
She was mirrored. She was never mirrored before. No characters that either are unique, are important, or just simply have a personality at all, are mirrored like that in any animated TV series.
This indicates that the model that apparently looks like her is actually just a generic crowd filling character.
Therefore, if her model was used with the sole purpose of filling up crowds, this means that the last appearance, and much likely the other ones too, were A MERE COINCIDENCE.
You guys say that she was kept in the intro.
You mean the intro they made in the last season, where Derpy was still alive?
You cannot draw conclusions from outdated materials, and EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT THAT.
Well, I also remember saying that Hasbro was greedy.
If I didn’t, I’m completely sure I said that somewhere else. If I didn’t say it in here, I said it now.
I have been thinking a lot on this statement. And there are 3 things that could prove it right:
FIRST: The Gameloft “game thing”.
That game. THAT GAME!! I REALLY don’t like to think about that game.
It’s just the most horrendous experience that anyone can have.
Games like that are very deserving of the title “DLC Hunt Game”.
Seriously, a game where you BUY the characters for a price higher than the game’s price itself? That’s evil.
Also, saying that this abomination someone dared to call a “game” was entirely Gameloft’s fault is wrong.
It’s not like Hasbro couldn’t have a look at whatever they were making.
They also had to ACCEPT it before sharing it to the public.
SECOND: Removal of a highly anticipated fan-game for the sake of money.
Remember MLP Online? Hasbro shut it down for copyright infringement.
Well, they started shutting down fan-games! Good!
THIRD: You-Tube takedowns.
According to Equestria Daily, several You-Tube videos were taken down due to copyright infringement.
You might be thinking: “So? It’s just a classy company trying to protect it’s money. That seems normal, right?”
Well, it would be, if it wasn’t for the fact that EVEN FAN-ART VIDEOS WERE TAKEN DOWN.
I don’t know much about the US laws, but I know for sure that fan-art is one of the types of unlicensed use of copyrighted material that is ALLOWED to exist, as soon as it doesn’t get money from it.
I dare to say that Hasbro is getting closer to become a fan hating company.
Just like those who supported SOPA back then.
Also, I remember saying that you guys didn’t try hard enough to save her, and you all argued that everyone tried hard; TOO hard, actually.
Okay. You tried hard. I can understand that now.
But for HOW LONG? Did you KEEP TRYING? Did you AVOID GIVING UP AT ALL COSTS?
You guys were going so well, but then you just STOPPED COMPLETELY.
And now, here are the consequences.
You know what I think about all of this? I think that Hasbro is not only greedy, but also BLIND and DEAF.
They just pretend that we don’t exist.
They don’t listen to our opinions; the opinions of the people who made the show famous in the first place.
If it wasn’t for us, their most famous creation of the moment would still be known as “the gayest piece of crap that exists in the universe”.
Yet, it’s as if we didn’t have a voice.
Also, that mysterious post from Grey DeLise stating that she was going to voice “a certain grey pony that loves muffins”.
I just KNEW there was something wrong with that. Hasbro couldn’t just suddenly start loving us for no reason.
They even said that Derpy would NEVER appear any closer to the front screen than being invisible behind everything, let alone speak again.
And I was right.
Equestria Daily just updated their post on that. The voice acting was meant to be for a fan project.
This means that nothing of it really matters at all. Even less so knowing that it’ll be taken down by Hasbro just like it happened with the other fan stuff, anyway.
The merchandise, comics, and stuff, do not make an influence on the show, and are not official to it’s events.
Therefore, no matter how many Derpy toys Hasbro keeps throwing at us, it doesn’t make much of a difference. They are just using her to get money from us. Nothing else.
They don’t make toys because they like their customers. They make toys because they need the money.
They didn’t make the Derpy toys because they like their unexpected fan-base. They made the Derpy toys because they wanted to get some extra money from it.
It was just a marketing trick. It wasn’t made to make us happy. It wasn’t an apology for the incident.
It was nothing that you can imagine rather than a marketing trick.
One last thing, before ending this post.
I already have some expectations in regards of the future of the show.
I really think that everything just can’t get any better. If the situation is going to change, it can only get worse.
I, still, didn’t watch any of the show’s episodes, and I never will. I lost all my trust in Hasbro and everything related to ponies this far.
Yes, it’s over. You can rage on me now.
Okay. This time, I am not going to prove my statements to be right at all.
Instead, all I want you guys to do, even though this might sound really weird, is to prove them wrong.
They are so negative that I just can’t trust on them myself. I don’t want them to be right, I want them all to be wrong.
Also, I’d like to add a few things:
= I don’t want to read anything similar to the phrase “Derpy is NOT dead, she still lives inside our hearts”. That is a cliche at this point, and I hate cliches.
= Please, no magical statements filled with wizards and leprechauns. I want them to be based on facts.
= I said FACTS, Not speculations.
= Allow me to post these here before anyone else in the planet does it for me:
(TRANSLATED SARCASM: Please, be serious. No jokes.)
Also, on a happier and completely unrelated note:
Remember when I said I wanted to make a DeviantArt account?
Well, I just did it. It was fun for a while…
Until I found out that the number of my profile page’s views is the exact same amount of times I logged in to my account and accessed it myself.
I’m almost starting to regret it.
