I know we have our favorite ships(mine is rarity x pinkie pie), but im pretty sure we have some ships from the brony fandom that we don't like. List them here, they can also be from EQG series too, but try to keep it to gen4 MLP:FIM, and EQG. My least favorite ship is Fluttershy X Rainbow Dash.
NOTE: THERE MAY LIKELY BE SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8. What the theme(s) of each Season is. What in your opinion, is each Season about? Like, for example: The theme of Season 1 was coming together and forming strong bonds of friendship with others. What about you guys?
I wanted today's blog entry to be a little different and more on the personal side. I recommend you read through it, but keep in mind, it's merely opinion; and as with all preference, it can always be argued against. Feel free to make your own interjections. The internet is a platform for belief, you needn't hide it. This entry in particular is talking about Season 7 -- and considering I make up everything as I go along -- it may contain light spoilers. I think about this a lot, but it's never really bothered me or made me recollect as much as I have now. I speak, of course, of the new Season 7. I watched the new episodes Live on Brony.Tv as I always do; but during my viewing, I noticed something rather odd. Peculiar, really. It wasn't something I was expected. What came out of me were cheers of excitement, but it sounded dull and lifeless. It was a cautious cry, something I'd been meaning to let out, but was waiting for the right evidence as a signal to sound. The odd detail that caught my eye was the new logo hastily plastered across my screen. Its dull purple colors stained across that beautifully painted, pink canvas created so many seasons ago. It felt out of place; it didn't feel the same. To be honest, I like the new logo and I believe it matched the "Guardians of Harmony" toy line perfectly; but staring at this new face felt wrong. It seemed as though the MLP I had grown to love had been defiled, dishonored, and disgraced. I know for a fact Hasbro shows little to no respect for their toy line or their mainstream franchises as proven through some of their older works. To them, it's no more than a name with a pricey dollar sign tagged along its ear. However, I figured there was still a heart hidden somewhere in that machine they've built themselves out of. It appears I stand corrected. To see this new logo pasted upon the title card made me cry a little on the inside (I'm not afraid to admit it). It felt like a sign of moving on; this wasn't the same show anymore. The simple characters who once had wishful goals were gone. The humble ponies I could relate to had evolved into "superstars" of their time. It was a devolution introduced at the end of Season 3; I failed to see it. (then again, I didn't discover the show until second-half Season 5). I'm not sure if these are her final breaths; but it is clear, MLP has changed drastically and the logo was a stamp to seal the deal. To take a step back, I know the show began to decline when the writers started to leave. It's hard for a show to stay afloat when newer creators try to shape the show in their own image. It's difficult trading hands as it changed the original point of view; but, based on memory, many of the writers left because they were either offered better opportunities (understandable), or because of their lack of control over the show's direction (variables controlled only by Hasbro Co.). The fandom has been at war with Hasbro since the dawn of our existence, yet here we stand. It's hard to believe we've made it this far in FiM and still have another season to go; that's incredible, but is it still worth it? I never thought I'd find myself to loving ponies, it wasn't, nor ever will be, a norm. However, just as the show has, ideas change. The show has become my curse: I love it so dearly, but I hate seeing what it's become; regardless, I follow it for its legacy and continue to smile upon the community. I like to see how things end and where they stop. I have a habit of not giving up on abandoned ideas. Still, even with all that in mind, the glowing button of departure glows more brightly than before. Seeing the fandom's past works of joy and celebration appear today as lowly tearjerkers. Time moves on, but looking to the future is futile. I know about twenty of these show up on the blogs/topics list daily and it's been a concern prevalent since the end of S2. I get it, it's a logo; but before you interject, allow me to wrap this up with one more quote: "Progress isn't always a good thing" Thanks for tuning into the Archives, -RealityPublishing
