Fan Work for the Uninitiated Nother Nonymous No.42142182
I've seen a lot of threads on this and other sites discussing which is the best episode to show to a friend who hasn't got a clue about FiM. But the show is only half the picture. The thing that makes this fandom specal is the fan product -- all the tens of thousands of videos, music tracks, artworks, and fanfictions that the fandom has poured out over the years.
I would show an uninitiated friend "The Moon Rises" as an example of the best productions of the show's fans. What else?
