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!!

Well he did say "annoying" furries. I'm a furry but I'm not healing about yiffing and yaffing all the time.

Indeed. And hopefully things like the lil' MLP MMO will release a playable version in the not-too-distant-future along with other such pass times.

Yeah, sorry Furries. Obviously there'll be some hostility from the more /b/ originating part of the community and what-not, but it's by no means a community-opinion. :P
>> No. 28638
We will be fine Crimson. We will always be strong and keep making stuff to be fans of.
Also there are a bunch of cool furrys who are also bronys.
But anyway, stand strong and stuff. Heck I'm still working on my massive story.

Oh, we'll be fine. I wouldn't worry none about the season gap. We outlasted the April 1st episode absence, we can do it again...even if it's for a few months. The community will fill in the blanks. It'll slow down a bit, I think, but will not evaporate.

And before we get into it again, ignore OP's furry comment, it'll start up drama and intolerance.

I apologize for the bad wording. I did not mean to include all furries in my comment, but rather, the "problem" ones that have popped up, including the one who created a certain winged purple pegasus with a crush on RD. I am perfectly fine with any other furry who contributes to the community. Once again, I'm sorry for my comment, in hindsight, it did seem rather intolerant.

I will also say again. The fact that we have a season two is more then enough to keep me going until the first episode of season two.

Lets think on why this is a GOOD THING! =D

Imagine it, when Season 2 gets close...when it starts to amp up...when the trailers hit...

People will start flocking back to this place. The streams will populate. THe speculation will hit critical mass. It'll be the first and greatest reunion of Brony's ever seen!

Time between seasons? You make us wait, but damn, you're gonna make it one hell of a ride nearing the end.

Well said, OP. There's no reason to worry. I don't mean to trivialize anypony's legitimate concerns, but srsly.

Seasons of television shows end.
Then there's a break.
Then the next season starts.

Each and every TV-based fandom has gone through this without spontaneously imploding. Of course things will taper off in the down time, but srsly. I'm actually glad for a pony break. I've been so preoccupied with the episodes and their discussion that I've hardly made any OC. Now's the perfect time to get on that. Each pic I've saved, each fic I've read, is more debt to this fandom incurred, and I will pay back every cent. MARK MY WORDS!

Also don't forget: Long Live the /b/ron/co/s of 4chan!

Oh... please don't do this. Overzealous evangelism just amplifies negative feelings and rarely convinces anyone.

Go buy some sidewalk chalk, draw Rainbow Dash really freaking huge on your street, and write FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. Get all your brony friends together (what, you don't have any? have you not learned from the show at all?), get a big projector screen, and host a pony block party. Burn a CD of the instrumental versions of the songs, and take over karaoke night at a local bar. (But don't get yourself beat up by some homophobe.) Try to get ponies onto your local news somehow. Be a clever pony!

We stand, brother (or sister), united under the banner of a common interest. Let those who waver reflect and review on why they stand among us as /b/ronies to begin with. Those who feel the fandom will fizzle or die must have greater faith in the power of love, magic and friendship! We are not merely a fad, a flash in the pan or a fashion that will disappear into the void of the Everfree. We will endure through this Winter, and eagerly await the Wrap Up when Season 2 finally breaks over the horizon!

I thank you for the affirming, reassuring and strengthening words you have imparted. Hail to you, friend! Hail to those who bask in and delight in the happiness and joy this wonderful show has brought us. Hail to those who in some way have become better friends and better people all around as a result (I know it's helped me vastly)! Hail to Friendship Is Magic!

What do you mean by furry? Because going by the actual definition of furry, we are all furries on this site to some degree, because we are fans of animated animals with human characteristics. Furry doesn't necessarily mean a sexual fetish. More often than not it doesn't.

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

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.
>> No. 28767
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.

Four days ago, a friend sent me this picture on facebook and i googled it to see what it refers to. Today, an hour ago i finished E26, typed E27 into youtube found nothing.
Then I googled it and WTF? Am I too late or too early? They cannot addict me first, then leave me alone without anything for months...

Anyway, now I found you and maybe you can help me getting over it.

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.

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.
