Since old thread hit bump limit and some namefag decided to make a poor excuse of a new thread without new content.
Here's the lewdate,
Rest of the comic is in:
Ketchup png here for those in favor of convenience:
Better than expected
Full expansion pack with two DLCs and a month of free membership in my pants.
didnt expect that dialogue.
it makes it all so much sweeter.
Fucking great panel.
Poor Marble, though, she made this party possible and she's getting no naughty fun.
Anon's cock 'n balls must be enormous, and Limestone must comment on it with the quickness.
Either samefag with shitty grammar
three anons just had a stroke.
That's some high quality stuff that is!
You can do better than that, Carlos. I mean really, it's not that tuff.
Maud approves, but Limestone does not approve of this position, Maud's like is especially good.
If Marble and Maud could work together, maybe they will be able to help Limestone in this... delicate situation.
If their parents won't come first and saw them like this, first, that is.
It's like one of my Japanese animes.
"I only wanted to pick up a rock",
Looks like that Anon boy done got his hand caught in a cookie jar, Wonder how he'll get out of this mess *Cue dramatic steel-guitar lick*
anon is a playa, but dear god my sides
>no stallion will ever wed her now
>Equestrians are Muslims when it comes to virgins
>she will most likely be executed and her aging parents will have to take over the farm
>Maud has also been executed, leaving Marble to take over the farm
>she dies sad and lonely
I guess you could say...
Anon's dick really SLAYS.
when she learns that the monster known as anon wrecked her family's farm and stole her sister's innocence.
>mfw I thought this was a one time strip
>mfw nigga just said chapter 2
One question, how long do you plan to make each chapter?
Two question, will you make any fun plot points involving Holders Boulder?
Three question, when/if the main six arrives into the story, would you maybe make Fluttershy a huge buttfan? Have her crave to massage those manly cheeks with her hooves? So much that she may even accidentally slap his butt a little while daydreaming?
>this was my first BJ and its with him!
i want an uncensored version of anon penis
I look at it like this: I would draw every day anyway, Might as well be this, so I get to draw ponies more and have good reasons to pose them in different ways than your usual pin up schlock.
Well... I mean I can see it, but it fits to a point. Equestria seems to be tilted that way at any rate, although since it is basically AU I suppose the author could have done a more neutral stance.
will our hero recharge and find out that the source of his power is pony innocence?
Maybe it's because she's a juke...box... heeroooo...
It's funny, I became close friend with an anon on this board and you remind me of him.
Still bro as fuck
Also he discovered himself to be bi, maybe you'll end up this way too.
THEY TYRANNICAL TEABAGGER STRIKES AGAIN
Reading the description and tags it just seems to be a very long OCXDerpy smutfic.
Also this reminds me, did the guy who was doing Austraeoh finish his shit? Did he gave up?
I have a friend from fimfic (no one big, all he has written so far was an autismal frozen/mlp crossover that he wisely abandoned) who talks with him, and apparently he spends the majority of his day watching mlp and taking notes.
So I wouldn't be surprised if he actually had autism.
That's an almost creepy obsession-levels of commitment to a fic.
My issue with the thing was that I started reading it because it was a comedy about Derpy chasing this poor fucker like a Pepe le Pew cartoon.
And then it turned into this weird serious drama thing and kept on going.
What the feldspar happened to your eyes?
this reminds me of another fic I saw on fimfiction a few years ago, it was about some dudes pitch black alicorn OC mary sue, didn't even try to hide his flaming autism and also said that his story would never end or something like that.
someone know the name? I feel the urge to make a comparison
I don't, but credit to kudzujaiku, he at least put a lot of thought into his fic. Overall I like the plot, even if it moves at paces a damaged Dalek could outspeed, and the character development is pretty decent as well. I feel like the author tries too hard to make literally everything a factor. Plus there is a lot of deliberate OOC. It's noticeable, but seems to be extrapolated from some semblance of reason.
Aaaaaaand here comes the
MUH DICK UNF
That's the question: Does pencils stay true to the greek standards of beauty or is Anon going to be packed?
I'm new to this, on average how quickly does the artist push out new pages?
Excellent. I finally have something to look forward to everyday.
Indeed, it's been a fun week and a half, where you been?
this is the thread music now
thanks for feeding the trolls, dipshit
Busy with work stuff, I'm currently tired as shit. Will OP deliver another page today? Or is this the final page for today?
I noticed OP is absent so he must be doing something.
Dunno, he's a Finnish insomniac and this is today's first page. Might be a few hours at least. Might put a preview out or not. Process that information as you will.
That's a pretty Flutterbutter. Wish I could draw, I'd clean it up and throw some flats on it but I can't draw and if I can't clean it up, flat's'd probably look extra shit. Crayons on a Picaso basically.
Artist is asadama on DB if you was wondering
I'm guessing he will probably deliver later on then.
I hope he does because I need to stay up and looking forward to something will help me stay awake.
Well apparently there is a prequel and character personality test results for each character. Autism levels are off the charts with this one! I may have to shower between chapters.
Funfact: Michelangelo's David has a small dong for a reason. You might think he looks confident from that angle, but from the perspective of, say, a giant, he looks absolutely terrified.
There are supposedly other hints too, like veins popping out where they're normally hidden (suggesting that his blood pressure is sky high). I've only heard about the latter tho.
Not at all. I'm this guy>>26099135
I actually started reading it when it first popped up on the site.
I gave up on that thing once it stopped being a fun little comedy story and went into some weird love triangle drama thing that just wouldn't end.
Pretty sure PH is not the longest. Then again the author (who is a massive faggot of whom I have had the misfortune of meeting in person) is writing a sequel and who knows, maybe he'll drag that one out too and try to beat his record.
Niggah you guys are all newfags who haven't heard of the Austraeoh series.
Just calculated that the current total is 2.600 000 words. And the guy is still going.
The longest novel ever physically published has 1,954,300 words.
The longest single volume novel has 1,100,000 words.
Basically, lengthy ponyfics have obliterated the world records and would be literal doorstoppers if they were published in one volume.
...Actually, they wouldn't even be doorstoppers. They'd fall through the damn floor.
Three point five mill- Holy mother of god...
>i do love when pornstars/producers show a sense of humour.
Well that's the thing; he doesn't look the part.
He's just a baby faced bitch boy who can't raise his voice to save his life.
He has however visited a certain thread on this board a few times and made an ass of himself when someone challenged his views on God and Religion. The faggot started throwing out flash card responses like a reddit tier atheist.
desu it's hard to explain in one post but let me assure you.
If he got hit by a bus, the only thing that would come of it would be all the extra oxygen he would have otherwise wasted.
I dont think theres anything to colour. only her pupils really need it.
I dont know who has it worse, Marble or Limestone. poor girl must be panicking so much for her sister.
Maud is having a great time though.
I thought that image said something different. Oh well, here's the protagonist of his story from chapter 40-something onwards.
>literally a black and red cyber alicorn descendant from Twilight Sparkle
>Merges souls with Luna
>has twins with a gay character who only goes straight for her
>dies at least 4-5 times (I lost count)
>more anime 'references' than I care to count
though in truth when I say "reference" I mean he plaigirize several animes by ripping scenes directly and copying them word for word; FMA Brotherhood, Ghost in the Shell primarily off the top of my head
>Dies at the end, again
>Her soul somehow inhabits a 'blank' copy of her body made from the stolen magical goo of Discord
>she's now the immortal fuckbuddy of the protagonist from the original story
I would go on but honestly there's so much bullshit that I have forgotten some of it, and most of this is better understood if you've read PH and the Original.
Not that I would suggest you read such a steaming pile of shit.
Is it really directly in her mouth though? I'd imagine the shaft is merely resting on her lips.
Not that it is much different. But less likely that Limestone bites down on anything.
Fanfiction is a literary joke in part because the faggots that make these bloated nothing stories interpret "the more words and bigger the story, the better it is!" and is certainly not helped by a readership that shares this mindset. Fuck's sake, one of FO:E's biggest selling points is "it has a lot of words".
There's no appreciation toward succinct, concise storytelling because everyone is obsessed with filling them with as many words as they can to pad it out and make it look big. A related issue to this is the amount of purple prose and unclear word usage to pad shit out, which just clutters the whole thing up because the author decided to rewrite a fucking thesaurus instead of a story.
I saw praise be given to someone for describing a drop of rain falling in 1,000 words. When the fuck are you ever going to need that many words to say "a drop of rain fell"?
>you know, not everything has to be a fetish. Sometimes, believe it or not, it has nothing to do with sex.
Do you...do you know where you are?
I've heard it said that PH is a strange beast in terms of fiction, with the first half being an example of how to write a good one and the second half being a good example of how NOT to write one.
>Marble keeps trying to get Anon off of Limestone.
>All of that friction EXPANDS him.
>Anon cums down Limestone's throat while unconscious, drowning her in his thick, manly baby-batter.
>Meanwhile Maud got off tubbing herself in Anon's face while sucking off his fingers.
Chapters 1-16 are done well and set up a great FoE universe. Thing start to slide from 17-33.
Don't read 34 and beyond. It's not worth it.
I've read chapters 1-53 THREE FUCKING TIMES.
The rest up to chapter 78 or 79 I only read once, mostly so that I could confidently say it's shit
IT'S. NOT. WORTH IT.
>this based comedy comic turn into a cliche echi manga with ponies
Here, have a pone version. For you.
Imagine wootmaster falling onto you and shoving his cock down your throat, you wouldn't mind dying like that?
That really depends. You have to find a good balance between lengthy descriptions and bland actions. also if you want to have character development sometimes the story has to run a little longer. I find it kind of annoying when characters bump into each other and are suddenly super deeply in love.
Anon is unconscious and doesn't know what's happening. there is still a chance it can be great. hopefully the author understands that popular opinion isn't always a good opinion.
Make it Soarin' and you'll get a solid 'maybe' from me.
Okay, more pages tomorrow, lessee if we can again advance the plot a little then.
He said "mares attracted to anon" like the old physique comedy threads which were about an absent-minded yet physically stunning anon getting all the mares hot and bothered but not actually doing anything with them, thus the comedy.
B-but I got a iphone before android even existed...
so this is what Mac users feel like. All those years I spent making fun of mac users for having >nogames, and now I'm viewed as one for having an iphone. Oh fate, you so ironic.
May you manage to find sleep despite your troubled minds.
By the way... Who's your best pony?
I loved those threads.
Pic very much related
I can already tell Maud is going to be incredibly entertaining.
I've been to in over year, I guess. I admit, the website has always been shit, but it's my shit. The shitty format I had browsing on for years while reading shitty fanfics has always been there. Now it isn't.. > fuck
they had some really good stuff for a while. I cant say I read everything though. I tend to only hang on to generals for a while then get bored with them. And trying to get back into reading them 20 threads later is just confusing and not fully worth it at times, it feels like.
>Not wanting to die while gobbling Wootmaster's $5 footlong
I mean, really.
So Somber is an atheist, huh? And Kkat is Christian. And they're both furfags. And both gifted writers who wrote terrible, overly-long stories. Interesting.
>named ponut joe
>draws mostly humans
The greatest tragedy of our time.
Can't wait to see them decide which girl's room he's going to be hidden in... and then wake up in bed with...
Yup, quite the "angry with god for all of my problems" fedora tipping atheist.
What makes it even funnier is how obsessed he is with outdoing kkat despite being madly in love with him.
>My boss give my a better position in the job
>Finally haked my 3dsxl thank pic related
Best day ever
Yep. One day, we will be yelling at future 10yr old newags, shitting on them for not being around during the Moot times.
man woot is an ugly nigger like a fucking bushman
Still glad I took those pics of Woot just so we could use them for reaction images
Pencil your an awesome drawfag I wish I was half as good as you
Where did I state my personal preference in that post?
And if our fandoms artists want to have any sort of future after pony is over they'll need to be able to draw things that aren't horses.
Silly anon, theres always going to be a demand for non-human porn.
what's annoying is when it game comes out that's full of different creatures and the only porn you can find of it is of the only fucking humans.
she can't speak which means she's either got anon's big dick or balls down her throat. maybe even both.
i also think that since it's limestone, she already tried biting down on the dick but it was just too hard for her. which is impressive since this is a pony who eats rocks for a living.
>There's literally nothing wrong with EqG
pic not related ;^)
I keep hearing rumors that it's the same person, and the styles look similar but did either of them ever state that they are in fact the same person? Or even simpler, someone could just ask PJ what country he's from and it ought to give a pretty clear cut answer.
I've noticed most artists that draw EqG don't adhere to the original designs unless they're aiming for show accurate. I'd love to see more ponies from him in particular but just because its art from a spin-off you don't care for doesn't make it objectively bad.
>I've noticed most artists that draw EqG don't adhere to the original designs unless they're aiming for show accurate.
Because the original designs suck ass. They're literally like aliens. You have to change them to make things make sense. Just another reason EQG is shit.
bruh, I'm that faggot that put FG at number two in the episode rating thread. We are not going to see eye to eye on this.
But we can both appreciate good fan art, or else we wouldn't be in this thread right?
Yeah, EqG is usually just an excuse for artists to draw anthro with ridiculous proportions for a cheap unf. Check Derpi and you'll see that anthro is usually the most popular there in any category. I agree that his art isn't bad, but there's tons of anthro already, and he could be one of the top actual pony artists instead, and that's what I see as a waste of potential.
Well Killryde essentially died and a year after that PJ popped up. I dunno if someone's ever asked him and/or if he's trying to keep it secret for some reason, but the circumstances are enough for me to think that they are the same person.
To be fair you do make some stupid faces on most of the pic we have of you.
Putting the popular aspect to the side, anthro only makes up 8% of the total posts on derpi. I'll go ahead and assume you're using anthro to include humanized and EqG as well. That bumps it up to 19% where the remainder is pony and other FiM species. Can't really call that "tons of anthro"
yeah sorry that's my fault I asked him
we should do most of your pics as reaction images
Yeah, Pencils isn't gonna like that you guys ;^(
He's gonna be forced to make yet another thread to avoid unwanted namefags. If only there were a feature that only allowed OP to namefag and anyone else was forced anon.
That would mean that one in every five posts is something related to anthro to EqG. That's a pretty large chunk of stuff. Derpibooru also may or may not share those statistics with the rest of the internet.
Anyway, I think that guy was talking about a specific artist.
I haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about.
This is where I'd facetiously make a fake signature, but since it's against the rules and the ridiculous leejun hivemind has been strong these past few threads I'm sure most of you faggots would report-spam me
So when does Pinkie show up, I'm wondering. :^)
But that puts actual pony at every 4/5 posts, which is still a majority?
>That's a pretty large chunk
I don't understand, are you saying it shouldn't be there? That it's overshadowing pony stuff in some way?
Keep in mind that a lot of that pony is just screencaps and edits, not necessarily original art. Once we count only explicit pics, because the debate was about porn after all, anthro/humanized/EqG make up 38% of the database.
Once we sort out anything under 200 score it actually becomes a slight majority with 50.9%, and that's a lot of anthro porn for a pony show.
yeah sorry I'm breaking my own rule about contributing
Woot please don't tell me your friend sat on another laptop
>I don't understand, are you saying it shouldn't be there? That it's overshadowing pony stuff in some way?
I don't know. You were implying that 19% wasn't a significant percentage of uploads, and I guess I'm just being autistic about it. I'm not the guy you were originally replying to, by the way.
Oh no, I wasn't being sarcastic about you ironically namefagging and complaining about namefags. Unlike most people, I'm capable of judging a post by it's content rather than whatever name may be attached and see this stigma as an utterly silly failing of the individuals who bring it up that their ineptitude at doing so should be catered to by others rather than them developing such capabilities.
You're golden for being ironic, tho
> I'm not the guy you were originally replying to, by the way.
Ha, neither was I the guy who brought up the statistics. Guess we were both the autists that time for jumping into conversations.
>because the debate was about porn after all
The only mention of porn in the reply chain was an Anons longing for Killryde's porn. The debate has been about the bigger, total picture of anthro on derpi.
I APPRECIATE THAT.
HERE. GO BUY YOURSELF A NEW MACBOOK.
BUY YO WHOLE FAMILY NEW MACBOOKS.
That's okay senpai I'm actually a drawfag its just that I don't turn on my trip unless I'm drawing a pic, part of some big thing where I have to get off my ass and do something and when my friend Wootmaster happens to be on
Yeah, the debate that I sparked by saying that I missed Killryde's porn and that his move to EqG is a waste of potential. It may have steered elsewhere but at heart I always had the porn.
No problem, as a writefag I also don't use my trip outside of contributing. Not because I don't want to seem different from anybody else or as some attention whore, but because there are obvious perks to anonymous posting that I can fully appreciate. I naturally choose to post anonymous because it appeals to me, but I'm not going to bitch about some else not doing so because frankly I don't care. I come here to have fun, not worry about making sure other people are following some code of ethics.
I dropped an ask on his bumblr, once before, suggesting he draw horses more often. Not hoping for anything but it's all anyone can do I suppose. Cause damn his horses are fuckable.
It has the word huger on the first page. From that I can guess it's awful. Here's a screenshot with my questions. It's from mobile, so ignore any filenames or how weird it looks.
Fuck man, havent heard that since middle school. Stop bringing up a time before time, Anon.

No, you will suffer. You remember playing with Tech Decks, thinking how about cool it would be to do actually do these skateboard moves. Eventually, you stupidly try the stunts and immediately fall on your face. You cry on the floor for a bit, then go home. At home, you eat pizza rolls with band-aids covering your face.
Are you trying to be useless? Or does it just come naturally.
Was really hoping to see how Marble either helps limestone or kills her before I go to bed, it's 12:30 and I have to be up at a recruiting center at 8am.
Stop feeding your autism and draw more Wooty.
And he's nowhere near done. I mean, this thing is "As the World Turns: Pony Edition" tier both in length and sheer cheese (though it's internally consistent).
The author's on disability or something, because he just doesn't stop putting new chapters out there. Like a machine.
Yeah yeah I know. This drawfag has literally put me on notice. This guy's amazing, and I'm really glad he's doing this for the board. This motherfucker draws and writes the ponies better than literally anybody working at IDW. It's fucking sad in a way, but really inspiring.
It's people like this guy that'll get us through the hiatus intact.
To add to this, ANY drawfag, writefag or anybody who makes content is fucking amazing. The day we stop drawing crude pictures of pony vaginas and stop writing stories of a self-insert anon fucking all the characters is the day we die.
Ever thought that people like him is an asshole irl? Like, what if he's rude to people around him just because they're not up to his standards.? What if he's not respecting the people that raised him and don't visit them often to show his appreciation for them? Someone who judges other people based on biased observation? Someone who thinks that everything is a competition and feels little to no sympathy for other people around him?
I'm just saying, we've only seen one small aspect of his personality, and that is awesome. But nobody should call him awesome in general, because you really don't know yet.
He's finnish. As long as you're not russian or swedish he doesn't care what you can do or what you think as long as you don't disturb his corner of the world. If you are then he's going to hate you on principle.
I am first to admit I am not perfect. I am fallible, have moments of anxiety and can be irritable, however I make a point not to speak ill of anyone behind their back, and my mother is a selfless sweetheart whose kindness and generosity I can never repay in full. So you can rest easy over me being a jerk to my family. And what comes to my standards, they apply only to me personally. It is illogical and asinine to expect to ever police others behavior or choices. So cloppers, furries, religious and atheist all alike are free to do what ever makes them happy and speak their mind for all I care.
However, I concur, nobody should call me awesome, there's no reason to praise me beyond what you know of me. And even then it is unnecessary, I do not take compliments well, they make me feel bothered.
Enjoy my work and that's reward enough, I need no pedestals to stand on.
That aspect, should it exist, is outside of the board and so doesn't/shouldn't concern us in the slightest. Judge boardgoers by what they do for the board and how they act on the board, because that's all we really have to go by. If we get video of him beating puppies to death, then it can change.
>It is illogical and asinine to expect to ever police others behavior or choices.
I really wish I could say the same for people who got shit just because people i /mlp / disagrees with the small thing they do. Analysts here gets shit because they 'think' that they're desperate for "HorseFame" for example.
I agree, the feedback towards IDW here is pretty vitriolic, I am not a fan of the IDW comics either but I do understand the creative pressure and limitations they face. The writers aren't allowed to write nearly as in depth as they likely would like to and the art can never dip too far into anything controversial so it is a constant ropewalk. Which is why I am not horribly tempted to work for IDW myself. The thought of someone breathing down my neck with their IP guillotine sharpened is as tempting as smashing my thumb with a car door.
Well, the short version is IDW has a male writer hired on that is a vocal supporter of some SJW tumblrite, man hating, brony hating crazy fuck and crazy feminism in general. /mlp/ didn't like that.
That's basically because it's just another paycheck to them, as much of a shame that is that they prioritize making money over the creative process it's just how it is in the corporate world.
In here, where fame is meaningless and most people would get shat on if they asked for money doing creative things, this is where creativity can really shine because that's the only obligation is creating. It's not limited by shit like meeting deadlines to earn money or self-censoring your image to be marketable to publishing companies or even keep a public image since you don't even need a name. This is the perfect environment for creating for the sake of creating, something I personally greatly appreciate it for.
It may be that they aren't very inspired by the subject. As they do not seem to adhere to the canon or characterizations very well. Thus they are just writing trope ridden safe for kids stuff that pays the bills but wins no awards.
It is mostly due having to meet the deadline, so you can't take risks in writing and face possible rejection when you have a deadline closing.
IDW could resolve this problem however having greater staff working in parallel, so the writers could risk greater rejection chance with more leeway in deadlines.
Or maybe they are just lazy. I am uncertain.
The early issues with Cook & Price are the reason anyone even cares about the comics. If they had been unapologetic shit from the beginning, nobody would pay any attention to them.
We're still talking about /mlp/ here.
If you wanted love and tolerate, u missed the last train m8.
People shitting on IDW is more along the lines of memes than real hate/dislike towards it.
It's like people shitting on anthro because that's the "norm" on 4chan, but no one gives a fuck about what you fap to, and if they do, they clearly belong here. I don't find anthro as disgusting as diapers or scat or vore of whatever bullshit people are into, but they're still more accepted than fucking ponies with hands and feet?
Memejerking in circles.
But like I said we're on /mlp/, we're all just a bunch of autists (some more than others I guess) that "kinda" like the same thing.
The people not finding the truth in what I said are either delusional, trying to bait, or are real life autists trying to be the "cool kid that doesn't fap to horses".
TL;DR; You shouldn't take anything that comes from here seriously.
>Amazing: The post
Thank you Pencils, for being... well... you. Someome who understands that there more things happening behind the scenes. Someone who doesn't judge quick and over simple minor things. I bet it's even safe to say that you are the type who is willing to apologize and forgive other people. And even someone who knows how to be an encouragemebt for other people tondo their craft. Who knows? One thing is for sure, you're someone to look up to.
I'm very glad that you came here with an atttitude like yours. We need more people like you. Thanks again.
>TL;DR; You shouldn't take anything that comes from here seriously.
Now now, not too quick. Even Lauren fucking Faust said we sometimes have the most thoughtful critiques of the show. A lot of the hate towards IDW is warranted, especially after that horrid fucking Bulls arc. Yes, there's memeing, but a lot of times we critique something because we KNOW it can be better, and we want it to achieve it's potential.
So like...take half of the stuff we say here seriously.
>TL;DR; You shouldn't take anything that comes from here seriously.
I seriously want Ted and Curnow fired.
Oh, and that faggot that used clip art for a buttmark. Whatever his name is.
>posting on 4chan
>worried about PR
>Doesn't mean they get the license to hate on people just because they didn't conform to the critiques given to them.
Yeah, I don't like it when we hate on the people. But their material? Fuck that, hate on it till the cows come home. We know they can do better. They know too, mostly because we let them know.
Remember that fucking debacle with with Friends Forever #1? Remember how the artist never got to work on anything comic-related ever again? We're not here to swallow shit. They don't have to listen to us, but that doesn't mean we have to stop tearing into their asses. Lauren's whole fucking idea was that you don't get a free pass just because it's children's entertainment. If anything, that means you should work harder. I think most of our critiques are a reflection of that idea.
Of course there are people that try to seriously critique their works, but I still don't think they would come here for that.
Faust came on /co/ simply coz there weren't many places on the internet with adults talking about cartoons seriously.
I'm not sure that she would've came HERE if there were other places really... But then again you can't compare /co/ and here.
It's like comparing /h/ and /d/.
I was more referring to the fact that more than half of the people on the board are either still living with their parents and/or don't have much life experience, so them just shitting on working cartoonists simply because "hurr durr look at their anatomy xd" while they secretly fap to whatever shit (with just as much, if not even more, messed up anatomy) they found of their waifu on derpibooru.
And again we're talking about a fuckin cartoon.
How can one "seriously" try to critique the anatomy used in a cartoon and/or it's comics?
I just dislike narrow minded people, even more when talking about art.
>People shitting on IDW is more along the lines of memes than real hate/dislike towards it.
I am sorry, but this is what I consider 'modern' 4chan, where the mob just repeats opinions of others like a bunch of insecure teenagers. While this mentality has been present since early /b/ and all, /mlp/ had - particularly around the time Faust visited - tons of people who critized what they actually liked a lot, and Faust was the perfect recipient for that. You got what I personally like a lot about 4chan: something that tears everything you love to bits in a perfect reasonable way and then pats you on the back saying 'it's still pretty cool though'.
But hey, perhaps this almost blind hate is the natural reaction to what I have seen since S4 or so, when the episode threads started to be dominated by '9/10 SERIOUSLY LOVED IT', with everyone trying to critize the episode getting shot down with what was damage control rather than solid arguments. I am not surprised that the comic readers, who I assume are largely made up of people who view the show very crictically, have one-upped their criticism to not get shot down like they do in episode threads that seem almost like old Ponychan or new EQD at times. The new people who join imitated this hate without seeing all the substance in it, and now suddenly everyone is memeing.
>How can one "seriously" try to critique the anatomy used in a cartoon and/or it's comics?
Even within cartoons, there's certain rules, even if the rules themselves are wacky as fuck. Yeah, it's a children's show, but there's still guidelines the characters follow (excluding Pinkie Pie).
But there's a limit to the "lol it's just a cartoon/comic" excuse. There's "well I'm just being wacky with the anatomy" and then there's "lol I just don't give a shit XD". That's on the same level as deviantart shitters who excuse away their crap art with "It's just mah style".
You don't have to be a chef to know if a bowl of soup tastes like shit or not. There's merit to some of the things we say here.
Do you even know where u are?
It's not like we have anything else to do really.
Does it mean you intend to go this far, senpai?
>Yeah, I don't like it when we hate on the people.
Oh don't play fucking devil's advocate.
Before that debacle with BlackGryphon, you hated him. Hated him so much where you have to make a parody of one of his songs implicitly saying that he's a pedophile.
>But their material? Fuck that, hate on it till the cows come home.
I pity the dead who can never feel both liking the material and still able to give constructive criticisms. Also, hating their material can sometimes be equivalent of hating them as people because their material are usually an extension of themselves.
>I think most of our critiques are a reflection of that idea.
Critiques are good and all but not when it comes to things like "Uhh! SJW comic! I'm not going to read that shit." Go whine in your beloved horse news about "how bad those people are! Damn them! People simply must hate on their material till the cows come home."
Faust just shares the mentality many people on 4chan have (or had, it seems to have mostly vanished in the past few years), where people take things apart they love for the sake of wanting it to be better than it is.
Just look at the current show staff: it's a hug box with zero criticism, where everyone pats each other on the back for whatever they do. Who do you go to for feedback then? The haters who wouldn't like it anyway? No, Lauren found the people she needs a long time ago, and some of them on 4chan.
Besides, she even said she posted a few rumors and actual spoilers herself, so while she was still on the show she was actually a poster.
I have the same issues with the show. It's like they never look at a story board anymore and think 'could we do this in a more pony-way?'
It just doesn't fucking happen anymore since Faust left, and it irritates me more and more.
>Implying something such as PR towards 4Chan exist.
>Implying evey other pony community wasn't butt-devastated that she came here instead of there.
The tears were delicious.
Who the fuck are you? Are you important? Or just a fucking nigger? Shit. I'm not even surprised that people in your Skype are the ones who lurk /mlp/ because honestly, if you're someone else, you'd get shit for pointlessly tripfagging and namefagging.
>Just look at the current show staff: it's a hug box with zero criticism
Fucking bullshit right here. Even EQD has great constructive criticisms on the matter. You're fucking implying so hard.
>I got no arguments whatsoever
>I'm going to call him a newfag so it shows how much I know alot about him without having to tell him anything.
I admit I don't go here often because I got better things to do, but I've been a lurker since 2013. A few months after I joined the fandom.
>Oh don't play fucking devil's advocate.
Hating on paid artists who work for Hasbro is quite a stone's throw from making a parody about some horse-famous brony musician's weird relationship with a teenage girl.
>I pity the dead who can never feel both liking the material and still able to give constructive criticisms.
I actually agree with you here. Usually I do try to find something to like about the comics. It usually comes from the art. I'm not just a 100 percent hate machine. But I won't put on baby gloves if something's subpar either.
>but not when it comes to things like "Uhh! SJW comic! I'm not going to read that shit."
I agree again. I usually try to separate the artist or writer from whatever opinions they may have on shit. It's what they do that I focus on, not what type of person they are.
Like with Blackgryphon. I actually don't know shit about him as a person. I don't know what his personality is like, or whether he likes ketchup in his fucking macaroni or whatever. I DO know that he hangs out with Michelle a lot, tweets with her, does videos and music with her, charges gullible bronies for $100 Skype calls and it's fuckin' strange. Otherwise whatever.
So I'm with you against the SJW boogeymen memers. There's a lot of kneejerk reaction against the pettiest of shit. However that shouldn't discredit the actual discussion that gets through.
That's because that's what modern 4chan is, really.
Only reason I'm still on /mlp/ isn't to talk about the show, it's only for the lewd and the memes.
There's not much point in having discussions here anymore about anything. Any answers you're gonna get is "faggot', "kill yourself", "Is this bait?" and
There aren't RULES that every cartoon needs to keep. (I'm talking about comics too ofc)
It's up to each work/media/author to set them.
If the reader dislike those rules then that's unfortunate.
Then again, if the author changes those rules again and again just to ease his narration/drawing...
And also we don't know what their work conditions are.
Just like you can't shit on a Ubisoft developer for making shitty games. He has a timeline and shit.
And I don't see working for Hasbro much different than working for EA/Ubisoft/Whatever.
>Lauren's whole fucking idea was that you don't get a free pass just because it's children's entertainment. If anything, that means you should work harder
Yeah, great example she's setting by not sticking with a project long enough to actually showcase this.
I agree in some cases that IDW doesn't live up to the standards of the show and deserve a good deal of the criticism they receive, but let's not say a lot of the shit that passes as critique in the comic threads is totally unbiased and fair. I stopped opening those threads purely because they became a negativity circlejerk that shouted out any voice of reason that wasn't participating with what the majority agreed on. Fuck's sake, man, they literally have their own version of barneyfag that dumps dumb vitriolic edits in every comic thread and gets praise for it.
And trust me it was a fucking chore trying to give reasonable critiques in those threads because the comics really aren't great, but hyperbole is the word of law and only black-and-white viewpoints of "hate it or fuck off back to roundstable/IDWforums/EqD" gets tiresome to deal with after a while.
You're really not making a great case against anti-namefag stigma.
