Do you guys read the fan made comics?

Madmax makes the best ones.

Although mother Derpy comics are great, too.

Not a bad thing. I liked the Scottish Spike thing.
Although 2 defects did stand out: synching text with lips was off (you could see lips move a lot when their wasn't a spoken line, and the perpetual music instead of sound effects killed it a little.

Read it and sleep
The voices are a bit monotone, but I like the humour.

Those were fun, the sleep over one especially, since I love reading the fan-fiction so much and the war was also interesting in it :)

It's more the fact that I see a lot of people portraying Pinkie as criminally insane afterwards. I've read quite some freaky fanfics that desperately wants to copy cupcakes in some way, but don't really do it right.

I personally am a fan of cupcakes it is a great read that grew on me after the first time. If interested I did a reading of it first part second part. personally I am not a huge fan of people trying to repeat it though, the original was good and interesting and worked well. However people trying to make sequels to it etc. will just end up making it overly gory or something to try and make it better than the original which would just end up ruining their one. Similar to what they did with Saw for example, Saw 2 they just shoved loads of extra people in and killed them off quickly and had no real character development that made the movie suck.

By all means if there is a really good one made I will go and read it, but I doubt there is really a great one yet. I do know some people have made their own versions, but I haven't read them yet due to me thinking it probably isn't going to live up to the original.

Also these things.

Here is a great video of a trailer for cupcakes the movie

Also, for Fluttershy fans...

Far to cute.

Rainbow Dash putting roofies in her drink "Hey I only did it one time", funny.

That's what I've heard, I personally have never read Cupcakes, funnily enough. It doesnt really sound appealing at all. I actually like some grim dark once in a while, but it's not something I really want to crossover with MLP. As far as just straight explicit gore, that's just dumb, in my opinion. It's not scary or anything, just unpleasant and unnecessary.

It's not really meant to be taken as some incredibly serious read, its just meant to be something to read, either like or find horrible likely both together and then talk about it and reference it etc. It holds its job as the extreme end of pony fan-fiction well, there has to be one and I personally think it works better than expected.
Of course its not something where you go "wow gore? awesome I'll check it up" But its something where you go "fan-fiction about Pinkie and Rainbow Dash? Ok I'll read it", which was why I first read it not knowing what it was going to be. It works much better if you don't know what it is before you check it out. After you have read it you can then watch some videos like the trailer I linked for example and find it funny where other people wouldn't understand it and be able to enjoy it the same way.
To be honest it isnt very extreme either, it isnt overly gory etc. compared to lots of other stuff you could find written it is kind of calm, it isnt something you cringe at while reading or have to stop reading since its to extreme, rather you can still keep reading it, find it kind of horrible but not enough to make you throw it away. Personally I suck at horrible things but I was able to read this aloud and record it fine, it just doesnt seem as bad as people make it out.

I thought it was a bit in character. (outside that violence doesn't belong in MLP). Eerily, Pinkie was still being Pinkie. On the other hand, Rainbow dash, in the original, is a helpless victim and doesn't go badass in her situation. That's what I liked about it most. Often stories are about good versus evil and the hero has to spout badass lines and find a way to get out of it. this story didn't have that. The ending was blunt and to the point, without having much epilogue to it. (the one without AppleBloom that is).

I've read my fair share of sad fics concerning Derpy.

Also, another one of my favourite fan videos, in particular if you like Deathnote.

Pinkie knows what's right from wrong, (ex. when she requests to call off the prank on Fluttershy) therefore she is not insane. She is also more compassionate, so her answer to Rainbow Dash wanting to go home was just off tone. It just seemed like the author was looking for excuses to add details of the gruesome violence, much like that manga/anime Elfen Lied.

He means she keeps in character while doing all the torturing etc. Yes her character isn't a torturer and knows whats right from wrong. However the way she does everything in cupcakes keeps to what she is like, if she thought what she did was right. Which in the fiction it is as she says something along the lines of "We have our jobs and we have to do them, we might not like it and at times I just want to go home, but in the end we have our jobs to do and we can't run from our responsibility" Pinkie Pie in the fiction truly believes she is doing the right thing. Which makes everything she does and say actually work for her.
It is a perfect example of her character, if her character had a psychotic view on reality.

Everything in the next season will be directed towards Bronies and because the people who create the show know about Bronies, things will probably change. Just saying...

It might change a lil bit, but not for the worst IMO. I think they know what is good and will keep it coming.

Well like any TV show it will start to lose its fans and probably the attention of it's targeted audience. I doubt that will happen though due to the characters they have.

So people who like a show and are doing no real harm to you are annoying and persistent people. Hmm. Not sure if you're trolling or are just stupid. I could go either way, but it's Newgrounds so who really gives a flying fuck.

I am proud to say that after learning about it on the Internet so much, I finally went up and watched the dang thing on YouTube. I am glad to say that it is a fantastic show because it has some of the best animation I have ever seen in a show, not to mention fantastic voice acting and plenty of unpredictable events and all-around cuteness! It's probably the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life and I've seen a lot!

except you're everywhere, there's loads of specially designed boards and places where you could go and discuss this children's show. but you stick around the forums where nobody wants it.

most of you are borderline furry/paedophile anyway, so maybe i was wrong in saying that. this whole thing is just a thin veil for your disgusting habits that people don't accept. like me starting a serious discussion about dora the explorer because i have a fetish for 3 year old mexican girls, but doing it on every website i can think of.

Not sure if you're trolling or are just stupid.

You know I could respond by saying that for the most part (there probably are sickos out there though) that a good group of people do not have fetishes for My Little Pony and are not furries.

However trolling has come to this thread and I don't doubt that it will be locked any minute now.

Mods- Please don't lock this thread because of the annoying trolls on this page.
Fellow Bronies- Ignore them like we did on earlier pages and I'm sure they'll eventually go away, we don't want our thread locked because of these jerks, do we?
Anyways, I was watching one of my horses walk and I thought about how the ponies walk then realized that they actually walk almost exactly like real horses. I appreciate the animation of the show so much more now because of that.

They won't change the show to fit an older audience, for a few reasons, first they didn't allow a lot of stuff as it was and had it changed to appeal more to the younger audience, like changing duke blueblood to nephew etc. so they won't go ahead and change the whole thing to fit an older audience, second most of their fanbase is likely still younger as it is as it was made for them in mind, and finally and most importantly I think they are able to tell that we like the show AS IT IS and that changing it wouldn't be good as we like it AS IT IS, I think anyone who actually has a media interest or qualification or job can tell not to make something change if its perfect as it is. If they changed it not only would they be destroying their main market, but also the older market to.

yes they will likely add in small things, like all cartoons do, Rugrats for example had loads of material in it you didnt get unless you were older, so they will shove stuff in for the older audiences, but they wont change it, unless they are idiots (which I doubt they are.)
