Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

@  unluckiness : (31 May 2016 - 04:43 AM)

Can it? Oprah's couch seems fine.

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

Going off of something someone mentioned earlier, I actually do have to wonder if the character in question being female has anything to do with the people reacting negatively. No one really seems to care about all the stock dumb male characters in shows (of which there is a LOT).

Personally I'm more offended by people using the word "*scrubbed*(ed)" to refer to someone mentally handicapped. That word has come to be an actual general insult.

Well, all the definitions say it being stupid or looking *scrubbed*, not to actually referring to one being *scrubbed*, just stupid or an expression. I can see the confusion here.

"Derpy", in this case, is named after a particular expression that assumes mental retardation. It's the whole reason they named her that to begin with. "Derp" is used for more than just a sound or stupid action.
This is not at all my understanding of the word Derpy.

But then, I guess I shouldn't bother because people will just tell me that particular definition is fake and invalid.

In general, I'd welcome the creators just leaving fanon alone. Sometimes, when a series takes a fan joke or theory and makes it canon it can work. However, as soon as FiM gave even a hint of doing this the obsessed parts of the audience decided every little bit of fanon/fanfiction they created is canon by default. Bad enough as is but not helped by the number of half baked ideas it generated. In any other fanbase, you'd be laughed at/ignored if you tried to argue your fanwork was legitimate. FiM fans instead seem to think they're being added to the series bible as they plop them out and when the show DOES acknowledge them, it only feeds the ridiculous sense of entitlement.

Couldn't resist to reply: you must be new in MLP-fandom

Try to visit other parts of the fandom. More popular and frequent parts.

Or wait, better to do not, if you want to maintain your sanity

UPD: just encountered an example: http://www.reddit.co...hvd6/its_canon/
You find it funny and see it as a joke? That's right. But some people don't. They actually think it is reference to the fanon about Fluttershy being portrayed as Dovakhin. It sounds stupid, but that's the whole damn point.

I just read that Reddit thread-thingy, and no one is seriously saying "Dovahshy is Canon". You try to use this as an example of Fans deciding canon that doesn't actually exist, but your interpretation couldn't be more wrong. I feel just a little bit insulted that you'd expect anyone to take that as a serious example. You do realize that most things that declare "So and so is CANON" aren't serious declarations of fan belief, right?

Also, "You must be new here"? Really? When you're not wildly misinterpreting things, maybe you can condescend to us. And even then it's a jivey thing to do.

If nothing else, I would have hoped the fact the show ignored the fanon take on Luna would have been an eye opener to some. If you don't personally think there's a problem with this stuff fair enough. But don't call someone delusional when they've been around long enough to see fans actively arguing the fanon for this show somehow becomes canon because of a few nods to say thanks to the fans for being supportive.

The fact that people can be so defensive about a show about cartoon ponies staggers me.

Even shippers, arguably the hardest core of fanon subscribers, are usually joking when they say something like "OMG it's canon". No, it's not just "we see what they're saying as a joke" kind of joke, it's that they themselves actually mean it as a joke or are being facetious. Almost nobody thinks their fanon has a genuine place in the show; they just subscribe to those things they find enhance their own personal enjoyment. And personally, I don't give a flying feather one way or the other, as long as they're enjoying the bucking show.

QUOTE(Kein @ Mar 5 2012, 08:27 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Boards /pony/, /dis/ and /srs/ on ponychan.net, Canterlot.com , EqD's comments regarding episode or fanfics - this is where you can find the examples of such... let's name things honestly - idiocy. But I'm not going to look for them myself, no sir, sorry. I've had enough of it.

So you point to something that's a joke, and reference other people that feel completely differently. Pretty bad point you're making here.

You're delusional because you are seeing something that's not there. How long you've been around isn't really relevant.
