    *eye roll*

    me checking the dislike ratio on my new story

    Glad to know bigotry is still alive and well in this fandom.

    It's glad to see some of us didn't watch the same series as I did.

    So where I've been

    Okay, uh... how do I begin this? Well, I suppose I should start with the obvious. Yes, I've been distracted. If you follow me on Archive that should be obvious. And if you don't, you totally should btw. Yes, I'm shameless.

    Final chapter up

    Been a hell of a ride, honestly. I just apologize for dragging it on for so long.

(Sigh) This fandom at times... · 9:58pm Aug 13th, 2016

Okay, this is just getting old real fast. Already, I've seen whining and complaining about the new episode, and at least one person who I follow has offically decided to quit watching the show. This fandom has a lot of unnecessary drama. I mean, just look at what happened after Fili Vanili. Death threats were sent. Freaking DEATH threats just because Pinkie was perceived as acting out of character.:twilightangry2:

And then there were more recent episodes of this stupidity earlier this season with the duo of No Second Prances and Newbie Dash. Bashing fics, AKA author mouthpieces being written left and right, some centered even on TWILIGHT. Can't people just enjoy the show for what it is anymore?:facehoof:

Now this is not a message to say I'm leaving this fandom, but a message to say I'm just annoyed with certain aspects of it. I know of some of the sane people on here (Manaphy, Shamrock Clover, Summer Dancer, Matt11, etc...) but I just wish more people would follow their example and just sit back and relax to enjoy the show and not complain so much about every little thing.

:rainbowdetermined2: That, I can agree with!

Really death threats... It's just a tv show.

Oh come on! We reach this lame point already?! What is wrong with people nowadays.

Alright the episode today wasn't good, personally I found it meh, but I still enjoy watching it.

I think it's safe to say despite what they may claim, they weren't true fans. Basically, what happened was it was related to how Pinkie was accidentally insensitive towards Fluttershy and her stage fright. God, I hate people that stupid.

Let's be happy we aren't the Steven universe fandom or the Thomas fandom,shits going down over there.

4148690 So I've heard. The Steven Universe, along with the Sonic fandom are pretty much my least two favorite fandoms. On happier news, I think you'd like to know the next chapter of Grimlock, Dinobot and... Father is in the works.:raritywink:

4148697 great to hear,I need to catch up on that story but life is starting to smash into me with school starting up.

4148700 Yeah, school's more important. I myself need to get signed up for my GED test sooner or later so I can get a job when that time comes around. But trust me, you'll like the things I have in the works. If you don't like the chapter I'm currently working on, you'll love the next one after that I promise you as it features Optimus Prime in a main role.:raritywink:

4148707 oooo boy my mind is ready.

4148181 people sent death threats to an actor on a show called good luck Charlie for having a lesbian couple and keep in mind the actor was a toddler

Rainbow Dash's fanbase is full of people who are incredibly sensitive to their favorite being shown negative in any way apparently.

I mean they seem to do this any time an episode displeases them in every way, when Rarity's fanbase got a bit annoyed at some stuff in Spice Up your Life they basically commented on it, and then got over it in a day, same with Applejack's and Applejack's Day Off. Seems to most often this over reaction comes from Rainbow's fanbase. Probably because it tends to skew the youngest.

As for No Second Prances, it was hilarious for me there since I actually think I enjoyed Twilight there more than in most episodes in the last 2 seasons. Generally I feel like they've been trying to bring her old flaws back but apparently it's jarring to some people.

Ugh, tell me about it. :ajbemused: I know I may not love every episode, but there's always something positive about them. I just think people focus on the negative because it's more popular and easier to do so. It's a bit harder to figure out why you like it, or at least to explain. That's just my thoughts on it. I don't understand why it's gotten so much like this, but this is why I steer clear from most reviewers. {Only watch a handful sporatically.} and why I'm planning a series called 'Everything Great' with MLP episodes/movies, pointing out all the good bits and explaining aspects that are considered wins. Something a bit more positive to give the fandom, though there's still so much good here that I just overlook the neighsayers. Not to say they don't have points, some I can agree with, but I think some just take it too far.
