LEAVINGTHEFANDOMFOREVERGAIZMISSMEBADLY by endler LEAVINGTHEFANDOMFOREVERGAIZMISSMEBADLY by endler
Another stamp dedicated to the recent silliness of the FIM fandom.

Because the whole alicorn Twilight had been implanted HARD into being the truth (one must be blind if they can't see she is now an Alicorn), bronies everywhere have been getting in the impulses to make journals, scrappily put together pictures, and such, so they can scream to the heavens, "I'M NOT LONGER GOING TO BE IN THE FANDOM ANYMORE, I HATE IT, OH MY GOD I HAVE MY LITTLE PONY NOW AND HASBRO AND BAW BAW BAW."

:iconnothingtodohereplz: ...why do you feel the need to announce it to the world?

Just stop watching the show then. Leave the fandom. If you're this obsessive over something as small as this it actually might do the fandom some good as you're in the area of bronies that make people hate bronies in the first place.
Honestly, the only time people will start to care is if you're a popular person in the brony community, like :iconmrponiator:, even though he left long before this happened and it wasn't because of this but something that actually made some sense; but hey, people at least had the decency to see him off with a, "Good luck with your future endeavors. I will miss your animations, but hope you still do well and understand your reasoning." At least, most people did.

It's more facepalm worthy how popular people are actually dropping like flies because of this. I recall one person who was making a really cool series...but because of alicorn Twily, during the times when it was just a rumour, the said they'd quit what they were doing if it became true because it ruined the flow of their art.

...people like this need to take a page from :icondekomaru:. He has his own Twixie world and the most recent one where someone asked if he was going to turn Twilight into an Alicorn or not...he responded to normally to it and basically just wrapped it up to, "It's not going to completely ruin my muse. I still love what I love doing, and I love what I love, no matter if there's a big change or not."


If you seriously can't take the change though...just leave the fandom and stop watching the show. You don't need to make a huge spectacle of yourself over it. Just leave.

Really, i find that you can tell why people are leaving.
A few/most Bronies are becoming batshit rude. 
And really, if i do get a reply to this, it'll probably be a brony
who has read it wrong and will start yelling insults at me.
Us fans need to learn to calm our shit, it's not that the 'haters'
hate us, it's that we've driven them to that point.

When I leave a fandom, usually I have good reasons for leaving. I left the Lord of the Rings fandom because of the canon Nazis who go around dissing everyone's LOTR fanfics and complaining about canon violations.

Reminds me of those groups on FanFiction.net that actively search for stories violating the rules. (i.e. use of the script format (which is a stupid rule), reader insert fics (also a stupid thing to ban), etc) They use names like Critics United and Eliminator.

Series is going normally how it was until now- Twilight or any of her friends doesn't mention "princess-thing" very much and she is still same.

Think about it logically.
Twi is my least favorite ponies and I have to admit, she does seem a bit to perfect in some episodes.
what I want to know is WHERE IS THIS FREAKIN SHOW GOING TO GO NOW??? I mean, Twilight has already achieved her goal. So what's left?
The message I got from "MMC" Was that is you keep doing what you are doing you'll be perfect.
Now, Twilight is considered a powerful pony because she's done something all of LIFE!
Compared to REAL LIFE this very unrealistic.
I have been Horseback riding for about 7 years (which is approximately the time T.S has been studying magic) BUT I AM NOT PERFECT!!!!!!!!
so, people will hate me for this, but PLEASE THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WILL REPLY (if you do)

OK,
But much of MLP HAS TO DO IN REAL LIFE!
This show is Aiming its morals towards little girls.
"The Mysterious Mare-Do-well" As much as that episode sucked, it could have had a GREAT LESSON! The Lesson was "IT IS OK TO GIVE PEOPLE THEIR OWN MEDICINE" That's actually a BAD lesson because if that episode was in real life, R.D would have been mad at her friends, not be grateful.
"Lesson 0" I learned from that episode that your friends should have your back every time you mess up.
Twilight got off of the hook BECAUSE HER FRIENDS TOOK THE BLAME!
Last round up: A.J GOT PRESSURED INTO TELLING THE TRUTH
"boast busters" Apparently if someone boasts too much, they should be ridiculed. If "friendship is magic," Twilight would have at least asked Trixie before THROWING OUT OF TOWN.
I rest my case

You just proved the fact that not every episode had a perfect moral thus the moral of the last episode of the third season shouldn't be expected to be the best. You forgot Baby Cakes where it seemed like the initial message was 'just get way too overwhelmed and every problem will be fixed'.

This is so true. I have lost counts of how many series I have stopped watching because something happened/didn't where the story whent/the main character turning into an ass or something along those lines. I simply stopped looking and left the fandom without a single look backwards. I may talk how I don't like it with other who shares my opinion, but I wouldn't dream of bothering the fans who still like the show.
It's sad how some fans can and will ruin it for every other fan.

I disapprove of Alicorn Twilight :| (I was never that much of a Twili fan in the first place. She's one of my least fave ponies although I don't dislike her.) I think the wings make her look ugly. And I've seriously lost interest in the show now it's disappointing :P Hasbro is just fucking with shit :|

And then the head writer says "Every girl wants to be a princess" and it really just disgust me. I didn't want to be a princess when I was little. And I don't think characters like Applejack would be interested in that. It's more or less Hasbro that makes me lose interest in the next season. I think I'll just watch reruns of the old episodes unless they have Derpy or bring Faust back. I think there's much more to people leaving the fandom besides Alicorn Twili, it was just that was the final straw for them :shrug: We can only take so much disappointment I:

They also know there's a lot of male watchers and I think there's a possibility they'd try to make the show too girly. In the end I would want Faust to come back. But I head a rumour that there'd be a new character in the Mane six. I might watch it if that happens :P

It does cause harm. It is hard to enjoy the finale, which I consider one of the most epic episodes of the series, when I keep hearing extreme complaints about how bad it is--including the parts I love like the songs.

If people don't like the songs, the characters, the style, or the writing--why are they hanging out with the fandom and sticking around? I've seen quite a few people who can be described that way... instead of celebrating a well-made episode, it ends up with a few people starting big fights which make the atmosphere unpleasant.

I don't see how when people have different opinions it hurts you. They're not killing anyone. It's not causing you trouble in your personal life. If you like the episode then like it. If you hate it then hate it. These people most likely feel the same way when you say you like an episode. If you want to announce how much you loved an episode than they have as much of a right to announce they hate it. People announce they're still watching MLP so why is it a big deal when someone announces they no longer want to watch it? If what people say affects you then that's you being too concerned with them. I don't consider the finale the most epic episode. So does that hurt you? No, it does not. The only thing I really liked about the finale was the music itself, I think they outdid themselves there (except for the beginning and end, too much like a musical to me). :P

If people are sticking around the fandom there's something they like. Simple as that. There's some people who never even watched the show but enjoyed the actual drawing, writing, or music, that bronies make and then they become bronies themselves. Also, not everyone is a brony, some are simply trolls who like to stir the big pot and know that big fandoms have a lot of oversensitive brats. In which the people leaving the fandom can be called but also the people complaining about those leaving can be called oversensitive. :shrug:

That is an awfully big response. The gist of it is rather insulting, ending on an insulting note, of course.

You also use murder as a comparison to my argument..... Why you would do that is not beyond me, but I prefer not to address the matter, since it could start a fight--and I have said everything about the topic I have to say.

Expressing negative opinions strongly, constantly, and as fact, causes the atmosphere of many fan hangouts to become unpleasant.

If it sounds insulting I can only shrug to the matter. For some reason everything I say comes out that way. Oh well.

I'm pointing out it causes no harm. MLP already gets a lot of hate and that shouldn't take out the joy of watching the show. I'm not trying to start a fight. I'm pointing out why people expressing their hate is not harming anyone.

It wouldn't be unpleasant if you learn how to actually ignore them. You know what they say, those who don't matter, mind.

Humans don't really have off-switches to that kind of thing--some people have the right genes/mental-conditioning to do that really well, though. Also, this reminds me of an argument about the treatment of female gamers in the fighting game community I heard a while back, "If they just toughened up, it'd be fine." The problems aren't anywhere near that bad yet, thank God--but the familiarity makes me dislike that idea fully.

Glad you aren't trying to start a fight. If you could understand why people are negatively effected by the hatred towards the show from within the community (and why they can't just learn to switch it off), it would help this conversation go a lot farther.

Never was part of the fandom either way, watching the show =/= being a brony/pegasis/whatever. I didn't enjoy the episode, it completely rushed and I don't like the fact Twilight became an alicorn. But that doesn't stop me from watching the show, I'm curious about what will happen in season 4; I want to know the new ideas. However, if it keeps going downhill (in my opinion) I probably won't watch it anymore, which is obvious because why would you watch something that bores you and/or became uninteresting to you? It's not like I'm gonna spam the comment sections on youtube or place nasty words about someone doing an artwork of alicorn Twi, place multiple tweets and facebook posts about it or anything like that. It's not that big of a deal, don't get why people make it seem so big. There's much more important things in life than raging and crying and scolding and all because a purple cartoon horse that only had a horn got a pair of wings as well.

It's not just Alicorn Twilight that's pushing me from the brony fandom, it's also these:

1) Hasbro's started to fuck around and interfere with the goings-on of both the show and the fandom (something I have a horrible feeling about)

2) I'm finding more and more /b/-sourced assholes roaming around

3) The hate is starting to sicken me. Worse.

4) The whole Mary-Sue hunt. It's a horrifying aspect of OC creation.

5) The finale, because THERE'S NO FUCKING STORY. AT ALL.

The only way I'd be more disappointed and confused is if this is what ALL THREE finale episodes are going to be like.

6) Fanfiction's dropping in quality. It's getting harder and harder to find awesome fics.


And more.
