EQGirlsOMG by PixelKitties


EQG is like Elseworlds. Sure sometimes Batman is a cowboy vampire pirate, but not really.

If you really fall in love with Gay Vampire Pirate Cowboy Batman, its okay.  You can write fanfic, draw fanart, cosplay, and tell yourself (and anyone who will listen) that somewhere out in Universe 683492 Apple, Batman is swinging from a bonaventure mizzen with a stetson and a Winchester rifle, drinking the blood of brooding young men with pouty lips and exceptionally smooth legs.

If you hate Vampire Cowboy Robot Mormon Batman you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman.

I would watch a show about a time travelling caveman. Especially if it was a spinoff of Herman Hedning.

Agreed. We had DerpyGate, RoyalWeddingGate, twilicornGate and sailed through them.
But EQGGate is looking particularly ugly due to nasty and possible threatening things left of artists and writers twitter and other social media.

Have you read this. [link]

Maybe it's not so bad...

If someone can provide proof positive i would be a lot happier.

I just finished reading the post at EQD.[link]
People at DHX may be quitting because of the hate.
The fandom is doing the haters work for them.

Absolutely unbelievable.

Now now, it's too easy to label a fandom because of a few bad eggs. This is the internet, and DHX is working in the entertainment industry, there are bound to be critics and downright haters/trolls of anything they do who are involved inside/outside a fandom. Remember that being a part of this fandom doesn't require anything to prove it, and to be honest if anyone IS upset by this, they aren't forced to watch it, nor forced to like it.

I should have said,"the rabid element of the fandom" as opposed to "the fandom".

I also would like to add that it is kinda silly getting worked up by adults over a movie that isn't even aimed at them. I know that Bronies represent something special, but we are just along for the ride :P

I did yes, and I am a tad skeptical about it. These are the people who brought us Cadence and Alicorn Twilight, both characters who at the mere mention in rumor brought on a wave of negativity from hundreds while at the same time a wave of supporters as well, much like it is now, yet they muscled through that just fine. The realm of creative industry is filled with negative reception, if not those zealots in our fandom who upset DHX, but professional film critics when the movie is inevitably released (there are some that just love to chew out everything). It's part and parcel and they should be resistant to it by now.

That said, if they are upset by the actions of a few, I do hope for the best in their cheering up. And perhaps hopefully more taking MA Larson's approach. If they are threatened by internet trolls, there is always the handy ability to just plain ignore them.

spike as a dog with everypony else a human. I am laughing my ass off because all i can think is futashy cept its spike.

the show tho i have faith in it it may not be what we wanted but its got good writers, animators, and storyboarders so the comedy and inside jokes for us pony fans should be enough to make it entertaining. as many have said it bares repeating. give it a chance. lot of folks that hates gen1-gen3.5 love MLP:FiM so at least wait to see it before you condem it. if after seeing it you hate it feel free to grab your pitchforks and torches and massacre it to the lowest depths of hell. till then keep calm and pony on.

Good comic book reference... ah the good time when Batman would travel across time and beat bitches to get back but without knowing destroying the universe...
and we all thought he was dead...
GOOD TIMES

At the Equestria Girls thing... I give it the benefits of doubt, somehow I have the feeling I won't be that bad (I can take a Monster High movie with my sis any day, so why I can't take a version of it with ponies?)

I may as well tell you my thoughts on this.

I'm looking forward to Equestria Girls. At first I thought it would be like a really bad nightmare or something but after watching the trailer and hearing what others say, I'm going to see it with an open mind. I won't make my assumptions unless I see it for myself. It's like an old saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." It's too bad that some people judge way too early and are avoiding it. Meh. To each their own.

Also regarding Elseworlds, you told me on Twitter that your favorite was Superman: Red Son. I told you my favorites are The Dark Knight Returns and Superman: Kingdom Come. EQG is like an Elseworlds story. Sometimes it can be good like what you and I mentioned and other times, it can be like a piece of crap like The Dark Knight Strikes Again and Catwoman: Guardian of Gotham. It isn't canon and doesn't intrude with the main stuff that's going on in the main universe.

So now I want to ask everyone, why get angry on something that isn't going to be canon. It's a non-canon story just for fun. I'm going to look forward to the movie and for those that do like it, you should too. But for those that don't, please don't hate on us. It not only makes us people that like it look bad but also makes you look bad and no one wants that. Like Pixelkitties said and I quote, "you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman." Yeah, I know that reference from Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne. Too bad DC's new 52 really screwed things up. Believe me, I don't read their comics for sure. I'll stick to IDW and Archie for my comic book needs.

THIS.

This was my reaction.

I have literally seen this fanfic written a dozen times, and I have seen it get thousands of upvotes and sloppy rounds of fellatio(metaphorically).

But now that Hasbro's writing it? IT'S HAPPENING HASBROOOO IT'S ALL OVER YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED IT etc.

There's some sort of tragic comedy to this.

What bugged me were the *ahem* plot holes. Like, how is Spike not only a dog, but there BEFORE TWILIGHT? I'm gonna stop right there before I get into it, but really, my complaint is the second-rate writing.

As long as it does not have real relevance to the canon, I can happily ignore it and keep waiting for season 4.

Do I think its bad? No, I can't tell if its gonna be bad by watching just a trailer.

Do I feel disappointed? Yes, I do feel disappointed because I was expecting the first MLP:FiM movie to be related to FiM canon in a cool and even an epic way.

I saw enough of the show I love as well as elements that hint at a greater theme. I want to know about Sunset Shimmer, the supposed "villain," especially given the context of her toy box saying "Sunset Shimmer knows a magical path to faraway adventures! Years ago, she was also a student of Princess Celestia." So in short I'm curious.

the only 2 things I hate about it is...

1. the Rule34 crowd has new ways of making our mane 6 "love" us
2. non fans of the FIM will think this is cannon and cause us all sorts of grief

already have enough problems trying to explain why a grown man watches FIM now we have to tell them we DON'T like EQG and that its not connected to the show in any way.

It's like rebooting the fandom all over again because now we have to put up with the haters and people that don't understand bronies with this new garbage that is based on the series.

i'm not concerned with what they think, but how they treat me and other people that love the ponies after all the time and effort we put into educating them on why we love them... this comes and its like a kick in the crotch.

I compare it to other fandoms to give others an idea like how Michael Bay is making the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into Middle-aged alien kung fu reptilian like beings.

To me if they wanted to do a spin off I would have rather seen the misadventures of Derpy or something with a character that doesn't' change what they are or where they live.

NerdyMind Featured By Owner May 13, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
But the difference is, lolMichael Bay is not making a film even remotely related to the 80s toon. You might as well say that crappy DBZ movie affected how people see anime fans.

Fact is, the kind of people who "judge" bronies, will not be influenced by this movie. They will always be macho homophobics. Blaming EqG for anything these trolls do or say is overreaching.

If you spend your whole life concerned about what braindead bullies say, you are letting them bully you. Ignore them. Seriously. It's a cartoon that NEITHER side should be taking so seriously.

see again you think about how they think, i am talking about how they are treated...
lets say bullies instead of teasing and words physically assault you and give you swirlies and weddgies and beat you up every day all day just because of the image they have of you.

its not all a mental judgement like you think and like Fox News portrayed a brony it can cause serious problems not just a dirty look.

be like if someone made a big porn series of Jesus Christ and everyone saw all religion as a perverted sex cult then harassed a priest at a church because of it keying his car setting fires on the church property and all his practitioners stopped coming to church.

an image of something good and pure can be destroyed by the slightest thing and EQG is one of those things that is put out not to further grow a good program but to try and capitalize on someone elses market. What's next they want the money from the Disney princess' toy line so they make all the ponies into human princess' and have them reenact fairy tales?

Hasbro always does this crap, they have ruined every incarnation of a series they have made once a concept writer and developer makes a show and it becomes popular they have to come in and take over the show making them into stupid commercials and killing the show. It's happend with Hasbro 38 times now. When will Hasbro learn that the show sells the toys NOT the other way around.
