So today, Capper General and /MLP/ sent a message to Lauren Faust on twitter, offering up a bottle of 2003 Pinot Noir as a kicker to have her go to Babscon. Lauren declined politely as possible, stating that she doesn’t believe she has anything else relevant to add to all of the conversations, statements, and commentary she’s made over the years on the subject.
Which is honestly the reaction I would have expected, because honestly- why are these folks attempting to coax her into another brony convention?
(Inserting a read more here, because I’ve got a lot to say- please read and reblog if you have time.)
GASP. You're a brony! D:
I don’t really associate myself with that label anymore. I did back when season 2 was going on and the fandom was at its peak and things were alright but since then the fandom’s really gotten a bad name for itself and really I just like watching the show.
Some people say that the “good fans” should keep the label so that the bad ones don’t completely claim it but I think bronies are past the point of no return there and I was never really invested enough in the fandom to take it that seriously.
But, yeah, I’m just a fan of the show and some of the artists/works that have come from it.
