  1. @ovation You sound like a SERIOUS brony hipster right now mate. ^_^ All SUPERSIRIAL. It's kinda lol-y! (no offense meant, I'm kind of a pot-stirrer as well)

  2. @ovation I'm not sure if it's worth the time to send someone from Boston over to The Netherlands for something so trivial :P

  3. @ovation So, what is your issue with being known as a Brony, then? If you image does not matter, then why do you seem to fear being grouped with those who make up the negative side of the Fandom?

  4. @ovation We don't even have a door between us two :/

  5. @ovation I'm not talking about who you /are/. I'm speaking of who you are projected to be. This whole conversation is about image. If you hang around Bronies, people will easily see you as one. Likewise, if you hang out with Football players, people may see you as a Football player. Please don't tell me that you only fear for your image away from the distancing comfort of your computer screen.

  6. @ovation you're doing it either for yourself or for a future generation or you're just a plain bad person. If you do it for yourself it's because you enjoy acting and the such and do it for yourself and your own image. You want to project as a children's actor and are proud of it. Alternately you're doing it for the children and want to be a strong, fun role model for them. Either way you're projecting a positive image of yourself through your mind's eye. After all, if you didn't care about your reputation, why would you be fretting about bronies ruining your reputation?

  7. @ovation So, if you do not care about your image... then why would you not like being called a Brony?

  8. @ovation May I ask you to clarify something for me? You said that you do not wish to be labeled as a Brony, correct? And yet, you hang out online with Bronies. Does that mean that you don't mind being labeled as a Brony online, but offline you do mind? You watch (and enjoy) the show, and you clearly partake in fandom-related activities (existing on this site). Those two alone could easily label you as a Brony by others.

  9. @ovation I care about it and I'm sure other people do as well. I'm more ashamed of people like you who are too afraid to embrace their time as a brony, time they wholly enjoyed, to even just play it cool with the image then the people who ARE out there supporting a community they love. Sure, they're weird and sure they're consumer whores who cave in to the image of a pony and sure they're probably giving that money to people who are only in the community for money or fame, but at least they can stick by their convictions and support people such as you and me by keeping the community many millions strong.

  10. @ovation People online see. I realized what I said was kind of stupid, though. Still, if you can't own up to it in real life just because you're afraid it'll "Soil your reputation" I doubt you have a very good reputation (or self-respect for that matter) to start.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:18:56 UTC from web in context
  11. @ovation Then you can't associate with them online. No difference. People see on here, too.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:14:43 UTC from web in context
  12. @ovation You were at a point. It's like trying to deny heritage. Whatever, though. Guess you have no reason to be on here. better skedaddle before someone sees you talking to Bronies.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:11:32 UTC from web in context
  13. @ovation Be proud of the fact that you're in the fandom. You just look like a jack** to everybody if you hate it seeing as you were part of it. Don't be a jerk. Embrace it if approached about it and take it in stride.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:07:53 UTC from web in context
  14. @ovation no, we're seen as, like, heroes. Society changers.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:06:16 UTC from web in context
  15. @ovation Yeah, just around friends who are into it or something, you can do it jokingly but around others, nah.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:02:35 UTC from web in context
  16. @ovation No it isn't. If you read any recent news articles we're presented as something along the lines of a group of young adults who are challenging gender stereotypes by liking the show and are producing great stuff from it. Trust me, that stereotype is just as annoying, but it's not what you're talking about.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 10:00:52 UTC from web in context
  17. @ovation Just don't bring it up. If you do, do it in a joking manner. Don't ever reference the show around non-bronies. It's annoying.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:58:30 UTC from web in context
  18. @ovation Yup. I must agree with you there. And, unfortunately, that is the way it'll stay. There are always going to be people who take it too far, and the media is always going to be there to cash in on those who do. :/

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:57:37 UTC from web in context
  19. @ovation No we aren't. We haven't been in, like, a year. You're talking about a very small minority of the large majority in that post and it's unfair.

  20. @ovation Thus, the most likely natural cycle. They'll move on, too. Just realize some of them haven't or feel a strong connection to the show. People are different. It's hypocritical of me, but just tolerate it.

  21. @ovation >pedophiles

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:51:24 UTC from web in context
  22. @ovation Hmm. Well, I can't deny that such behavior is occurring, but that is nothing to lose hope in the fandom over! What exactly do you consider to be "Obsessed?"

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:43:51 UTC from web in context
  23. @ovation Take a second and realize you were most likely at that point.

    Sunday, 11-Nov-12 09:41:10 UTC from web in context
  24. @ovation Oh, come now. The fandom has always had its bad parts; the negative is merely highlighted because of the lack of recent canon material to circulate and inspire fan creativity.

  25. @ovation Welcome to the club

  26. @ovation !calgary No, no. Standard is the one where you're only allowed to play cards from the newest sets. You were there when Darcy was playing Stasis, you know we don't do that.

  27. @ovation -It ain't easy. (I haven't laughed like this in weeks)
