Sick of the Bitching

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 9, 2013, 10:42 PM

This is an angry post. Because shit just got real.

I am getting very tired of the constant whining and crying by bronies when they don't get their way. Fans in general can never be 100% pleased, I know I play the Sims, but screeching like babies about alicorn Twilight (I have heard way too much bawwing over such a simple thing that most of us saw coming from episode 1), or the realization that Derpy is not coming back, or Hasbro CADing fighting is magic. Hasbro lets us bronies get away with a LOT of stuff, and we take it for granted, then when they think we go too far, or decide to evolve the show in a different way, bronies actually make DEATH THREATS to the writers?! And harass Lauren Faust? And embarrass us to the point where you don't even want to associate with the culture anymore? I can't honestly see why they would make a petition to use copyrighted characters without permission. Think logically.

I do love this show, even though todays episode was pretty so-so, and it's my favorite way to wake up on a saturday before work, but COME ON! :iconsweetiebelleplz: I realize that this is just another example of a small percentage of a very large fanbase acting like raving lunatics, but how the hell can we defend our fanbase when shit like this keeps happening? I understand that you love the show, we all do, and for some it changed their lives, but willing to go to war over it, over a cartoon show, is wrong on so many levels.

Get a grip. Trust the writers. Be humble and appreciative of what we have, instead of acting like a spoiled rich 16 year old girl who go the black mercedes instead of the red one.

Tell me about it. There are some brownies out there that just overreact about everything. The biggest thing that upset me in the show is the destruction of the tree house, but I can except the changes. Basically everything you said.
Galactaboy Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Student Artist
I feel the same way, its just some wings added to a character whats so bad about? besides Twilight is capable of controlling magic very well so she does deserve to be an alicorn and finally Bronies should have seen this coming weather they like it or not guys you really have to calm down i didn't like this idea at first but Goldenfox17 made a great rant about this on Youtube i recommend checking him out.

I'm not liking where this is going...

I personally dont give a shit about derpy but the fact that they sent that CAD letter to devs of fighting is magic is something that I didnt like
JamesB720 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013
lol thx god i play GTA games
IrkenFenrir Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Student General Artist
what is CADing?
Kitsunade1 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Cease And Desist. They probably sent one to the creators of Fighting is Magic.
InvaderLez Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Derpy's not coming back? And Fighting is Magic got cancelled?! That's new. Very disappointing. :( It's all right to be upset about change, but what's with the harassment to the writers? Jeez...
Shiniwolfy Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
I've never been so ashamed to be a brony before. o.e people need to chill the hell out
MunchiCookieton Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
People make death threats over a 6 year old girl's cartoon show?
I thought the brony fanbase was better than that! I mean really! I think it's cool that Twi's getting wings, and I don't mind that Derpy is gone from the bg ponies (I see where the parents are coming from, I mean a pony with crossed eyes named derpy, that's kinda weird if you haven't seen the fanbase).
Honestly. People like that give the fanbase a bad name.
GauntletPorsche Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Bronies really DO get away with a lot of shit. With the way the fandom has been acting recently, no, almost ever since the Brony fandom formed, I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro tried to get rid of them. They need to get their shit together and stop bitching because their favorite purple pony has gained wings. They especially need to stop taking this shit so seriously, it's just a cartoon for fuck's sake
7EvenEcstacy Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
exactly, i always say to people, the writers wont make anything bad, it will be to people's liking...well, to some people's liking, some people as you said are never happy, lol, its true, i was a little bummed about Fighting is magic being cancelled, but its not the end of the world, we still have some awesome street fighter games or Killer instinct, and we have all the awesome music, they need to get over it.
willyscoot Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
It's true. I never got to play fighting is magic. Wanted to. But people need to suck it up. If you don't like something. Don't do it
LostBrony Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Oh dear God. More bronies need to read your journal.

It's always the same with every fandom. One thing changes, then everybody looses their damn minds! I personally have mixed feelings about Twilight's new wings. I'm not much of a gamer, so I don' t really care about Fighting is Magic. Though I am pissed most of the episodes aren't on Youtube anymore.... D:<

We started watching this show with an open mind. Shouldn't we keep it that way and trust the writers? I think they know what they're doing.
Death threats? That is kinda going too far. I haven't been watching lately.. but I agree with you. I watch the show just to see the show and enjoy it. But I am not a know everything about it fan so I don't know a lot of the problems which you speak.
thegrandarchitect Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Finally, somepony put it out there on the table! but to be honest I could agree with Hasbro on this one, it's one thing to expand your target audience by being okay with us making memes etc. but to abandon your original audience by making fighting is magic, that's just sad. so I'm okay with them postponing it.

(postponing because with enough of this incesent nagging, they will eventually cave)
Lady-of-Judgment Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
To be truthful, I'd make them wait longer if it was up to me. I don't deal with crybabies. I get enough of that at work with "REAL" babies.
ravengal Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
Damn straight!
Tis why I don't refer to myself as a brony anymore. I'm a casual fan.
Roll with the punches and deal with it, like a boss~
... Seriously, though, death threats? Ranting is one things, death threats are going waaaay too far.
Travler66 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Everyone need to see this.

:iconclapplz: very well said. that's all I can say
godslayer91 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
Okay having read this I have one thing to say;what if Hasbro responded by canceling the tv show.
What are you (the fandom) going to do about it then????? Just saying.
JamesEM73 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, people are ridiculous.

The only thing I disagree on is that I still think that a petition for Fighting is Magic is a good idea. Hasbro doesn't want to make people angry without a good reason. It's totally possible that popular demand for the game will cause a change of heart.
Pinkanon Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
its copyright. they own the show, and making a real game out of their characters is against the law
JamesEM73 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
So is drawing fan based comics, technically. I'm not saying Hasbro isn't within their rights, but they look the other way on tons of other fan works. We're just asking permission is all.
Urvy1A Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
What about playing the Fair Use card
CompleteDarkness23 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
At first I thought the Alicorn Twilight was a bit odd. But when they stopped developing the Fighting is Magic game I was a bit mad because of that. But making death threats? Wow. I may be a brony but I don't make threats like those. Take a chill pill.
SAHikari Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
YES. I hope Hasbro can understand that these vocal Bronies do not make up the majority. I was upset with the whole Derpy thing, and then Friendship Is Witchcraft being taken down from Youtube, but I'm not going to whine about it to the show creators, I mean COME ON. I'm kind of excited to see Twilight Alicorn. :3 I don't hate the fandom either, I think that the show has had a great influence on a lot of people, including myself and I still enjoy seeing every new episode. But there will always be extremists.
Pinkanon Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
filly derpy showed up in the latest episode actually durijng dash's flashback
Swade9wade Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
When I first seen Alicorn Twilight I was like "That's interesting." Then I heard about the community reaction and I went, "....What now?" Man that's over reaction at it's finest.
HNNNNNGHHH Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
If this sort of psychotic raving fan bullshit continues, it'll be US who will end the show and it's massive fanbase.
Seriously, I get that people bitch about almost everything, but complaining about a change in a cartoon series?! How the hell could you stoop so low? :iconrarityitisonplz:

True, the Derpy fiasco that went on during Season 2 is a bit understandable, but all the rage over something so trivial such as Alicorn Twilight is probably deserving of a bitch slap from Lauren Faust. The show was geared for little girls, not adolescent/young adult males, and the producers and show writers treat it as such. (Some occasion they don't, but that's besides the point) If Hasbro aims to keep the franchise up and running, they have to add some element in the show to keep up profits from their target demographic and what better way than to immortalize the show's main character?
REDBLUTEAM Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the show, hate the fandom with a burning passion.
madrebellion18 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
I agree with you. I do love the show and all, but if something doesn't go my (or the fanbases) way, I won't freak out or make death threats or anything like that over something I'm not even working on. The bronies who are freaking out should calm down and trust the writers know what they're doing, which I'm sure they do.

Also, I don't mind if Twlight becomes and Alicorn. I just want to see how the writers make it work.

Probably not the best time for this dear, but:

genstian Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Professional Artist
Just to inform people a bit about why Hasbro has to bitch. It's the american copyright law that they have to take action against all copyright infringements they become aware of, otherwise they loose the rights to MLP and MLP:FIM, thats why Hasbro just can't ignore projects like Fighting is Magic. Don't blame Hasbro, blame the US congress.

We get a new alicorn each season, eventually Celestia would run out of family. It's not fair to call it a "bad idea" until it's been tried.

Death treats? We should have a deep dungeon for people presenting death treats, no matter the reason.

Indeed on all points. It is annoying and the sad thing is with a lot of fandoms you get whiny little babies who can't let the littlest things go. Nice to see more who think like this. I am in so many fandoms I just see this extreme crap roll my eyes and roll on.

FINALLY! Someone with the same opinion as I do :U
twohuman Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You know what? The entire Brony culture is a joke. When I began to watch the show, I saw Bronies as a mass group of guys who watch a show for kids. I felt like I would fit in great. Then I found out how much they bitch about everything. They bitch about fan pandering, they bitch about a canceled game, they bitch about a change to a character that many WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. I have lost all hope for this fandom. That documentary should not have been wasted on them. I have detached myself from this fandom. I just watch the show to enjoy it, not to find every possible con about it. You know why? It's a fucking kids show! It was ment for children to sell a fucking toy from the eighties. It just so happens that the creators made it enjoyable. How about this? Hasbro can cancel BronyCon, take down FanFic websites, delete any fan art they can find, and erase every part of the fandom from the Internet! I won't fucking care. The Brony fandom has gone to far and it may be time to just end it.
Pinkanon Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I still like bronies, I like the fan culture, but this was in reference to the sick insanity by psycho fans. i think this happens in all large fandoms--i mean, zutara vs kataang in atla was face melting. transformers has had fights too insane to even mention. fans are both awesome and terrible.
TurboRex300 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
I hate these kinds of bronies! They make us look like children! Get a grip, assholes!
GoEatCheesecake Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
My comments on this subject are, what happened to the "love and tolerance" we bronies are supposed to stand for?!?! Shouldn't that apply to fictional characters as well, and if some of us can't practice it on the show that created that concept, how the BUCK are they supposed to practice it in real life?!? It sends a bad message about us when we've worked so hard to create a good one!
XxMistressMomoxX Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm alright with Alicorn Twilight, honestly I don't care if Twiight grows a pair of her own wings, she is still Twilight only that she can fly now and is immortal in a manner of speaking....the only think I have a problem with is Derpy getting taken off of the show, but I'm not going to go bicthing around a about it and sending death threats. We all know Derpy is in fact cannon, they already said her name in the last round up when they were trying to fix the roof of the town hall, even if they Hashbro later did change it to where Rainbow doesn't say Derpy's name and they uncrossed Derpy's eyes a bit, we all know Derpy is infact Cannon.
Pinkanon Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the derpy thing was painful, but the way I see it is the entirety of season 2 was a gift to us bronies. they even gave her a voice, and on the internet she still has her old voice and name. i have my memories of her, and I am still grateful to dhx for all their love for us. But they couldn't keep her, and that's sad for us but it avoids legal problems with hasbro that could have gotten the show taken off the air. we still have all of her on netflix, and her toys, and her tshirts :)
Metaknightrules Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i'm kinda sad about Derpy not coming back, but the explosion over Alicorn!Twilight is ridiculous.

I don't even watch MLP, but I know what was going on in this fanbase.

You've worded everything pretty well. If I remember, my brony boyfriend acknowledged it would play an important part of the plot and we should have seen the foreshadowing back in old seasons. Maybe I misunderstood what he said since my memory was a bit.... Fuzzy!

The sad thing is, not many morons are going either see this or get this.
TheCaringStallion Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
You know what, some people just shouldn't be on the internet if they're going to act like this. I will admit I too am upset that Fighting is Magic has been C&Ded and that Derpy will not be in the show anymore, but sending death threats to Hasbro because it won't accomplish ANYTHING!!. We should be happy with what Hasbro has given us in general, I share your pain, Pinkanon, I really do and like I said before I am willing to go with Twilight being a princess and I will NOT let the hate for alicorn Twilight stop me from enjoying it when it happens!! Anyway in conclusion this was a great, thank you for posting this and I hope people calm down about this because it will dig us as a community a bigger hole.
