Y’know…do you think this show could be way better if it wasn’t held back by the MLP license?

I feel weird about MLP. I want to like it for trying to do something different but it feels like anything amazing they could do is very restricted. And what they do to make up for it ends up sucking balls (i.e. Flash Sentry, that comic where Twilight doesn’t use magic to save people because “DA BAD GAIS R REAL BEINGZ”etc.) And that leads me to hate it.

Though really, I just want to be snuggled by Celestia’s arms for hours.

Still, I brought this up before and does anyone think if the show was almost the same, characters, art style and all, but not named My Little Pony, it would have a chance to do more?

Oh, without question. During production of “Twilight’s Kingdom”, McCarthy and crew were given explicit orders not to make Twilight punch Tirek in the face during their fight scene (which was a completely illogical call, seeing as how Rarity has kicked a manticore in the face and Rainbow Dash has kicked a dragon in the face before). I wouldn’t mind at all if the show took on a darker tone; it might just be the game changer this show so desperately needs. Unfortunately, that’ll happen around the same time we can build ice hotels in Hell.

I’m not really an expert, but I’m guessing that it’s mostly because the show is solid in a lot of different departments.

Animation fans like the quality of the flash.
People who prefer good storytelling over technical aspects can enjoy the unique tales that the show tells.
Those drawn to characters have an ever-growing, diverse cast who populate the world.
Those who appreciate a good mythos will discover that the backstory of the show is quite rich, and the world is full of new locations to explore.

Simply put, subcultures are drawn to shows that have a little something for everyone.

I don’t get the crusade against the NSFW content. I mean this is the Internet, and people are gonna like what they like. I don’t understand it, I mean its not illegal. I guess for the safety of the kids, but why this show. Why are you guys are supposed to be responsible for everything. I mean complaining about it isn’t going to do anything, in fact, the whole debate has done nothing.

Wait, what? Slow down. What are you talking about?

AFAIK, there was no “crusade” against NSFW here in MLP comment/image gallery. So, your reasoning of us being responsible and this whole debate thing doesn’t add up to what’s been happening here.

Are you talking about the NSFW blinds used in image gallery? If so, I think it’s mostly because mods are bit strict about what’s considered NSFW and whatnot. So, the posters have to be careful not to overstep the bounds and post the image un-blinded. Naturally, some images, when initially posted, get NSFW blind, although you might feel it’s safe for work (but not for kids, I guess).

So for those of you who still remember DeviantArt, the mods decided to have a Fan Art Friday journal dedicated to our little show here.

It’s about 99.9% SFW, so don’t worry. Nothing but legit respect over here.

Hmm, let’s see. You left around the time of Twilicorn, so I’m sure you know about that and the controversy it created. Since then, Equestria Girls happened, which caused just as much controversy. Then Season 4 happened, which a lot of people love, but I personally thought it was lacking. Then Equestria Girls got a sequel, and while it got a better reception than the first movie, I thought it was just as bad. I left the fandom myself shortly thereafter. Now, they’re waiting for Season 5 (which they joke about constantly), EqG 3, and an actual pony movie coming out in 2017.

So every once and a while I do spray paints on my guitar case. Today I did a humanized version of Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle. I’m going to wait until tomorrow to upload them (because lighting), but yeah word of warning it comes off as kind of creepy.

Kinda. Some people hop on fandoms just because they are the uncommon thing in the spotlight, but the “hipster effect” (i’m not saying they are all hipsters, some have legit reasons to not follow a fandom anymore) wears off after some time. Remember Twitch Plays Pokemon? Me neither.
Also, a lot of us “hibernate” during hiatuses and watch other things as well.

I am not reminded of communism, when i saw that trailer.
It reminded me on the “Doctor Who” episode “The Happiness Patrol”

" Happiness will prevail. Happiness Patrol Section C, please stand by for the first stage of a routine disappearance. And don’t forget – when you smile, I want to see those teeth! "
