..at least before I became a Brony I did, this community has really helped me with that.
Ok, one more little thing I need to get out of my mind while I work on that other project. Yes anyone that found my earlier posts worth reading saw my spiel on “Love and Tolerance” and while I stand by that being one of the biggest things that makes this fandom unique and oh so great, that’s while looking on the fandom with detachment. There is something else that just hits me as even greater on a much much more personal level, “Welcome to the Herd”
Ok yes the phrase itself is more or less intended as a joke and I myself have quite often followed saying that with a ponified version of the Borg’s opening address at times. But this is not about the phrase itself, but what it symbolizes to me personally on a deeper level…Acceptance.
As I opened with in my first posts, I am very very EXTREMELY shy and introverted…once I get to know someone I’m fine, and quite often end up being TO talkative at times…but it’s that initial “getting to know you” phase, and even worse taking that first risk of opening up enough to meet someone new and say high. But around the Brony community, I don’t have that fear (At least not as strong, still scared of bucking up due to inexperience in social interaction but that’s something else.) Every time I have taken the risk, opened myself up to a new facet of the community, various forums, groups, the Brony Tumblr community etc…It has been to open arms, understanding, and acceptance from the start, I have never felt left out, pushed aside, unwanted, or simply detached. Instead I’ve felt welcomed, taken in, and above all, accepted. And again you cannot know how big that is for me, it has NEVER happened to me before in any group of more then one or two people.
What I’m trying to say is, that above all else is what most deeply effects me on a personal level about this community is the fact that ANYONE is welcomed with open arms, isn’t judged, is treated with patience and understanding if they make a few social fuex-pas…including me. So once again, Thank you all, you have no idea how much your warm welcome, understanding and friendship mean to me.
(my birthday was actually on the 2nd. :P) Thank you guys sooooo much! You’re all so sweet and wonderful, my goodness! :)
Well, only so may times i can go over the same stuff about bronies that everyone knows, so lets go onto some directly pony related stuff. My personal analysis of one of the many, many, oh so many factors that make this show so amazing. The characters.
First off, there’s the simple fact that an animated show, for kids, forgirls, made just to shill toys essentially, actually HAS characters worth discussing in any depth. Everyone of them has depth and traits, far far beyond what most current animation, hell what the large chunk of live action shows, bothers with. Everyone of them has hopes, ambitions, fears; strengths, weaknesses, flaws. And all of hem are integral parts of each pony, there’ not just random things they develop for one episode just for a morale, and what’s more, they change, grow, learn. You see the ponies changing, always in small way based on there experience, just like a real person.
So, not sure how long it will take to start getting them working, but I intend to try and do a decently in depth look at each Mane 6 and how I see them, how they’ve changed, how they’ve succeeded and failed, and why a bunch of colorful cartoon ponies can seem like better, and more realistic people then the vast majority of characters put to screen these days.
