I knew someone who got put in the calzone by a girl. Tomato sauce burns are no laughing matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 May 2016 - 12:57 PM)

If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

@  Paladin : (05 May 2016 - 12:53 PM)

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

I'm sure some are squealing with delight

@  ▲ndrusi : (05 May 2016 - 10:40 AM)

Great, a bacon pun. Now people making pig puns will hog the chatbox.

WHat, is her name Errol or something?

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

She shoots fire from her eyes, and lightning from her arse!

@  MEDdMI : (03 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 12:01 PM)

OW HOLY SHIT SHE BREATHES FIRE OW OW OW

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:27 AM)

You'll have to fight her for it. Be warned, she bites.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Then I bid the soul of your turtle.

@  DeltaSeeker : (03 May 2016 - 11:25 AM)

I want one! I can't afford it, but I want one.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:22 AM)

I don't have a firstborn. Your bid is invalid.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:20 AM)

I think I'm loosing interest in Ponies. They aren't all consuming like they once were. I don't know if it's because I'm not on here every day talking about them, and when I do log on there's such a backlog that I don't even bother reading it. Or maybe it's simply run it's course. It's been a full year now that I've been following this show, and it turned from "This is amazing!" to "Okay, that was fine." I don't know.

I mean that fact that I've got waves 1 and 2 of Blind Bags on my desk below a MLP calender says something. But not even Fluttershy gives the the joy she used to.

Thoughts?

It's quite possible that you're simply burned out from it. Over indulging or obsessing can do that. Relax from it, take a few weeks and watch an ep or two of the new stuff once the season ends. If you're still "blah" on it, then it might have just been a fad.

And, if you are truly done with it, try to keep some of the morality in your heart and mind. You don't need to be a brony to try to make the world a better place.

Hey, if you're not interested anymore, you're not interested anymore, none of us will hold it against you, or at least none of us should.

Wonko's advice is good stuff, so keep that in mind.

This season is missing something from that last season one, that little bit of magic that made it perfect. But, I had this problem before, go watch a horror movie marathon, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Child's Play, Puppet Master, Halloween. Then watch an episode of FiM, it will rekindle your love for it! =D

Scaling obsession back to the point where it's a regular interest among others?

Excellent.

Yeah, I'm in a similiar boat. I still faithfully watch the show each week and enjoy it immensely, still collect the toys, and still peruse this subforum or ED here and there, but I'm not spending several hours every night looking at every PMV and reading fiction and making gifs and looking at fanart. It's a natural winding down.

I wouldn't say I'm losing interest, just that I'm not spending all my time on them.

I don't so much give up on fandoms as get distracted from them by the next shiny to come along. The more specific the fandom, the better it holds my interest, but the more likely it is to cease getting new material (see, for instance, my War Planets or Mystic Knights of Tir na Nog pages). I'm more distractable from huge sprawling fandoms (like Trek or kaiju) because they're too big to really get into in depth, so my roots are shallower. But when it's possible to follow pretty much all of the official stuff and a big chunk of the fan stuff, I find it easier to latch on.

I figure ponies will be one of those things I stay interested in as long as they keep making FiM, at which point I may drift off if G5 doesn't immediately grab me. In many ways, Transformers are an oddity in my fan behavior because it has changed radically many times and still held my interest. (Superhero comics, being something from before I was solidly "fannish", are also an exception.)

In any case, I rarely burn out on any fandom. They wither from the other side first, or I was never that into it to begin with.

I'm still enjoying the show. Of course, I just watch the episodes. I don't follow any fan sites, fan art, message board discussions or anything (barring this detour into the Allsparkle). So there's no burnout.

I got sick of it a while ago. There's only so much you can do with a children's show about ponies.

Like if you went to hell, and it was full of blood, and that blood was on fire, and it was raining blood, then maybe that would be enough blood! Eh… but probably not.

I still watch every episode as soon as I can find it, but I don't spend all of my spare time sketching ponies anymore, and I've never really delved much deeper into the fandom than these boards--you guys and gals are a great filter, by the way, and I love you all--so while the show no longer devours my life in great gulps, it still maintains a fairly strong hold on me. And I have to say, quite a bit of my own petty/childish/profane/hateful/intolerant attitudes and behaviors have been significantly improved or even completely abolished since I started watching the show and coming here regularly. This show made me a better person, and I will always remember and cherish it dearly for that, and for all of you. Whether any of you leave or not, I want you all to know that you are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

All of the gratitude, dear friends. All of the gratitude.
FREE CUSTOM PONIES!!
Just PM me whatever specifications you want.
