A NOTE TO THE FANS Crimson WarningCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 28630[View All]

So, episode 26 has arrived. Many of you are questioning whether or not the fandom will survive the many months before the new season.

We WILL survive. We have survived a near-month long break between episodes, we have survived annoying furries, trolls, and even an attempted cultural genocide by the moderators of 4chan.

So I have no doubt in my heart that we will survive and persevere through the coming months without the show. We are all saddened by the end of the first season, and some of us may move on to other things during the drought. I myself will occupy my time with college, as I start this August, but I will keep the lessons I've learned, the friends I've made, and the laughter I shared close to my heart.

I challenge those who draw to keep drawing ponies, and those who write to keep writing fanfiction, and keep ponies relevant. And what about those who cannot draw or write? What can you do? Simple, SPREAD THE WORD. There are those today who still don't know the sheer joy that is ponies even today, so I challenge you to bring those people into the fold, so we can all bask in the magic that is friendship when the ponies return.

In closing, if you all remember the kindness, loyalty, laughter, generosity, honesty, laughter, and magic we've experienced, then we will all be here again when the mane six return this November.

Long live EquestriaDaily!

Long live FiMChan and Ponychan!

Long live Derpyhooves.com!

Long live Lauren Faust and all of the creative teams behind this wonderful show!

And finally...

LONG LIVE MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC!!

Protip: Don't be offended so easily - it makes you fit the stereotype of an "annoying furry" all too well.

Also, saying 1/4 of bronies are furry is REALLY pushing it, and saying that furries are responsible for most OC is just plain silly.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 28722

About furries I just don't go to fanart and rp board where usually "the annoying furries" are so I'm good I never had problems and never felt big influence of any furry trying to make the whole community furries.

It's far narrower than "anyone who finds entertainment from anthropomorphic animals" because that's so broad it would include damn near everyone. Despite what some might say, it IS sexual, and typically includes drawn anthro porn or fursuits. I suppose there are some that only dress up in fursuits and act like animals without intercourse because they think they're an animal trapped in a human's body, but that's the minority. They're also the only type that I would consider to be actual nutters.

It's silly to assume it is going to go away. Why are people thinking that? This happens with all shows. With all fandoms. People had to wait for the Harry Potter books for longer then we will have to wait.

It doesn't make sense to think it's going to die.

And I'm glad it wont. I LOVE YOU EVERYPONY!

My friend, Thunderhorse, it seems that bronydom is now a psychic link, for I wrote my own rendition of Winter Wrap Up just this morning, as I rode into work this morning thinking about how hard the times ahead will be, and how much I believe we are all ready to face them if we do so together.

And so, I give you a song I hope Ponychan can embrace as its own: Season Wrap Up.



8 Months of pony coolness, and awesome holidays.
We stayed home every Friday, and made time just to play.
Oh the show we loved was quite a gem, and we turned it into gold.
And even though the eps were great, they're slowly getting old....

The time has come for season two, we're all waiting in may.
But it's also such anxious thing: will Luna have her day?
How will she fare? She's been gone long. How is it we all knew...
That we would come to love her just as much as we all do?

Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Do away with Ponychan fears.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here,
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.

Bringing home the fan stories, a pegasus' job begins.
Derpy Hooves will lead the charge, how can it not be win?
She may lose a fanfic here, forget a harsh deadline.
But we all know that she means well, and it's never been more fine.

Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Do away with Ponychan fears.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here,
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.

Little bronies fear the day they'll all be teased at school.
But don't despair, there's help ahead, Ponychan's always cool.
There's always been a party here, waiting for you all.
And it's only getting better, as wait here for the Fall.

Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Do away with Ponychan fears.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here,
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.

No easy task to clear the ground, we're so nervous here.
With proper care and writing, Faust allays our fear.
Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie: they'll never change a day.
Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy: stay yourselves always, we pray.

Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Do away with Ponychan fears.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here,
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.

...Now that we know just who we are, and we have found our place...
Go face the world with all of your hearts, haters ahead we face...

How will we do without our season, will Ponychan fade away?
We wanna belong so we must
Do our best today
Do our best today!

Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Do away with Ponychan fears.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here.
Season wrap up, season wrap up!
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here,
Cause tomorrow we'll still be here...
Cause tomorrow we'll still be HERE!!

I've been involved with the furry fandom for well over a decade, and I can say with certainty that a very large proportion of it proclaims no interest in sexual furry content. If you ever check out Second Life, I highly recommend you visit Luskwood, which is the oldest and one of the most popular furry communities there - the owners and moderators there take pride in keeping the area strictly PG. I've met Luskwood's owners and several of its longtime community members on a number of occasions in RL, and they are some of the kindest, most intelligent, non-sex-crazed people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Many of them fursuit or have fursuited at some point, not to fulfill some fetish or because they think they were born in the wrong body, but because it's legitimately and innocently fun for them! Having tried it myself, I've realized just how fun it can be to dress up as something entirely different and goof around in ways that you'd be self-conscious about otherwise - think of it as an extension of trick-or-treating at Halloween. Fursuit designing and building is also an art form with many similarities to dressmaking... except it's even more involved and exhausting, if you ask two of the Luskwood founders who became extremely skilled at it a few years ago (and who have been making very detailed virtual fursuits in Second Life for even longer).

I don't know how much any of this will change your view of furries as a whole, but I do beg you not to paint that whole with a single broad brush. We may not make ourselves heard much, but there really are an abundance of us clean furries out there!


And, so as to not derail this discussion more than it's already been (even though I guess I just contributed to it, eep), I will chime in with the other bronies here in voicing my intent to stick around, stay supportive of the community, and eagerly await the start of season 2!

I'll never leave this fandom. Not this board, not Dash.net, not any of it. Even if the show dies without Lauren Faust and every other pony leaves, I'll still be there, because this show has had an impact on my life that I can't describe in words, and that's one thing I'll never let go of. So even if the show dies completely, I'll still be here, writing mediocre fanfictions to show my grattitude to these Ponies.
That is all.

It's going to be sad when Lauren Faust no longer has any creative say in the program. The minute this show becomes a shitty product just to sell toys like much of the previous incarnations of the My Little Pony generations is the day this culture dies.

I'm a little scared by Lauren having less control over the show. a little more scared that hasbro is flexing their arm and trying to make this a thirty minute buy our toy ad. But what comforts me is that Lauren has said she's leaving this in the hands of the artists and writers of the show whom I think will continue the spirit well enough. All we can do is sit, wait, and hope.

Hasbro doesn't realize that this show has this community, and they treat it as a commercial for their horrible toys.
The toys should be based off of the show, not the other way around. Hasbro needs to get the picture.

I predicted something had to happen, its inevitable money speaks stronger if companies want to make little girls grow like cancer that wants to buy shit and be materialistic its what gives money humanity can be as shitty as it is now.

Thinking negatively the show dies and nobody can do anything about it and was easily predictable that the show couldn't be good for long and start to be like the old buy my shit type of show and telling how little girls should be "buy shit and you will be popular"

Thinking positively, if the creators believe in Lauren and are true bronies they will stick to her plan and still listen to her thoughts and agree, nothing will change due to Lauren only hasbro will have power to change anything in a chaotic way.

I don't know I think I'm more for the negative way because thinking on what always happens around the TV bad things are inevitable, money talks that's all.

I don't now much about the story but Lauren husband left Cartoon Network because of the cancer growing in there, something might happen like this.

Besides looking like calm arguments coming from me I'm like the pic.

I think it's way premature to be all doom and gloom - people like Jayson Thiessen still appear to be involved. I think it's pretty clear that the creative team as a whole "gets" Lauren's vision.

Let's stay optimistic until we actually see the new episodes.

>>28774
Yea, episode 26 was the last of season 1. While there hasn't been an official announcement, Q3 seems too early and they should easily be able to start before Q1 of 2012 so you can safely assume Q4 this year. Most people are speculating season 2 to start around November/December.

>>28775
I know, I was just being over dramatic about season 1 ending being stacked on with Lauren Faust's announcement of stepping down from the show.
