Now I don't want to step on anybody's toes with this blog, but on Derpibooru it seems bronies are some of the most spiteful, hate-filled fanbases ever. And no, I'm not talking about you guys. You guys are pretty tame considering. Here's a hypothetical situation that actually happened. A picture of Angel Bunny or Rainbow Dash is posted. A user comments "Aww.. how cute!" and then another person comments "You're stupid for liking that character! They're a complete sociopath!" Really. I mean it's not just the fact they're attacking a character who has a fanbase, but they also attack the user, the person who liked the character in the first place. Now I know a lot of people hate Angel Bunny, but what if the character was a more popular character like... Rainbow Dash or Applejack? This especially happens to people who defend Rainbow Dash now because of certain S6 episodes showcasing a more brasher side of her that hasn't been seen since S2. So I ask you all: Where's the love and tolerance? Was that all thrown out the window when it comes to Derpibooru, or are these people just trolls who argue about even the smallest thing. I've seen plenty of Applejack fan bashing, and hatred of people who like pretty much any pony that isn't Twilight Sparkle or Fluttershy. I wasn't going to say anything, but I feel this blog needed to be made or else I would go insane.
And part 2 of this blog is kind of a rant on S6 as a whole. Now S6 has been the first season to not impress me at all. I mean sure, it's introduced some interesting characters like Tender Taps, Ember, and Gabby, but every episode in this season feels tantamount to a bad episode of earlier seasons. I fell in love with the writing in the first four seasons. They created a dream-like fantasy world that I wanted to see explored more. When someone mentioned different sports, despite not liking sports IRL I wanted to see the mane six play each of those sports. And yet in S6 a season called "Explore Equestria" only explored a few areas of Equestria. Still no Zecora backstory, still no mention of Rainbow Dash or Scootaloo's parents, still no family for Rainbow Dash in general aside from a pony who may or may not be her dad which we haven't seen since she was a filly. It makes me so sad that so much potential for a season has been wasted. We got a Spike song, sure, but at what cost? An episode about acceptance which has been done better in literally every cartoon. I watch each new episode because I have a faint glimmer of hope that the show will return to its roots. And yet, every new episode disappoints me on a different level. Let's talk about the currently newest episodes for example, Buckball Season and The Fault of Our Cutie Marks. We've seen sports episodes done better in several other cartoons we've seen the episodes done better in other seasons, we've seen The Fault of Our Cutie Marks done better in so many other CMC episodes that it makes me dizzy. The problem here, is almost every episode is written by a new or fairly new writer and each person has a different idea on how to write the characters when I feel there's really only a few ways to write them. And that's all I can think of for now. Feel free to ask me questions and I'll respond to the best of my abilities.
