Hm...how can I put this lightly...

...

Okay, I can't put this lightly, so I'm just going to put this bluntly.

I have taken an interest in the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic television show.

*dives for bomb shelter*

Yes, I like the show. No, this is not a joke. And yes, I understand that this may cause a bit of discord, seeing that a self-proclaimed Ruler of All Things Dark is saying that he likes a show about ponies.

Explanation time.

See, to those of you who didn't already know, I took the part of an absolute pony-Nazi, seeming to want to hunt down and murder just about everything related to the show. However, this was, in truth, over-exaggerated for comedic effect. I didn't hate the show as much as I let on, but I still didn't plan on watching the show.

It happened subconsciously, really; during fits of boredom, I sometimes looked up various things about the show. Sooner or later, I ended up becoming quite knowledgeable on the show, even though I had not seen a single episode.

It was then that I realized - I actually liked this show. It isn't the girlishness that it appears to give off (most of the time) and, if you look hard enough into it, you can find some really, really cool things about it. (Internet meme references? Check. Multiple references to Greek mythology? Check. God of chaos that psychologically shatters and brainwashes ponies to become misanthropic and downright nasty, voiced by none other than John de Lancie, as well as bearing heavy similarities to a particular Star Trek character also played by the very same actor? Check, check, and check.)

Just something I wanted to clear up, though. I'm not going to be drowning everything related to this account in content related to the franchise. I'm still going to be the morbid, semi-insane and somewhat philosophical person you guys have come to know and love. (...right?) I've just began to embrace this show. I'm joining the community, sure, but I'm not a rabid fan in any sense.

With that being said...

*dives back into bomb shelter*

    The show still will suck for me, and this is coming from someone who's seen a couple of episodes of.

    Sorry, your overrated to the max show will never get me hooked. I have better things to do that join a pointless fad.

    ^ Overrated, just a bit. But not at all bad.

    Well, Mr. Dark Lord. It seems everyone approves of your decision.

    It's your decision if you don't like the show, but I don't think the show is a pointless fad. Whether people like it or not, the show has started a culture that is sweeping the nation faster than many other things have. And if a franchise is capable of doing this, then it is far from pointless.

    I don't know whether to be horrified or fascinated at the sight of this dark character's succumbing to the ponies...

    Only in your mind. People who spend a lot of time on the internet tend to think something that is popular on the internet is always popular in real life. It isn't. Ask an average American about the Pony show and they will give you an inquisitive look as to why you watch a show about ponies.

    That said, I appreciate your not changing everything in your profile to be about the Pony show, and thus shoving it down everyone's throat. I hope you can continue to be a responsible Pony fan.

    I know I'm really late with this, but I'm going to respond to a bunch of the comments here.

    Firstly, @Oblivion -- nice to see you going public with this. I need to look at what you've written still so give me a couple days there, but if you ever want to talk ponies I'm always good. I also don't think this is a "subculture sweeping the nation" -- I agree with @TheMysteryno. in that while it is immensely popular, nine times out of ten people have not heard of bronies.

    That being said, I would like to say to @TheMysteryno. that just because bronies take personal things (like avatars, profile pages, etc.) and make them about ponies does not qualify as "shoving it down other people's throats". I'm not a particularly big fan of Vocaloid, but I would never consider a Vocaloid avatar or a Vocaloid profile page "shoving it down my throat". What is shoving it down other people's throats is when you 1) bug someone to watch the show more than twice (the first two times I'd count it as a suggestion) and 2) derail unrelated things with ponies. Those are legitimately annoying things, but making a personal decision to represent yourself with pony-related things is not shoving it down other people's throats.
