I used to be a fan, but I stopped because the unoriginality of the fandom was overbearing. The very existence of fanon is the the absence of the cognitive capacity needed for every person to develop their own headcanon, and I have never seen a fandom with more fanon than My Little Pony. Let me rephrase that: My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic because bronies have a huge bias against the older incarnations of My Little Pony, which tbh at least had better episodal morals. In season 3 of MLP FIM, so much fanon became canon that I stopped watching but kept playing with the toys, but I gave them original personalities because fuck conformity. So even if I am a pony, I do not follow the herd.
