Fandom icons in danger
(267.52 KB, 474x480)
This shit will fuck up our fandom badly if we don't do anything against it.
It must me true, I read it on the internet.
We knew the fandom was going to die. This just means it's going to go out with an uproarious bang.
Can't beat them? Join them!
> Wasn't that Season 3 episode not shit??? It sure was!!!
1. I call bullshit until I see it on tv or hear from a staff member.
2. I don't care if Twilight becomes an alicorn if they can make it work. They made me like Cadence, I'm willing to try anything.
3. If Derpy has been yanked, the decision is already made, the eps are already in production without her. Hasbro execs won't make the expensive decision to change that.
Tl;dr you guys can't change anything just whine and make us all look bad.
Didn't we just have this thread?
No source, no name, not even the courtesy of actual text, I'm pretty sure this is bullshit.
And if it's not? Who gives a shit? What percentage of the fandom is even centered around the show itself anymore? Pretty sure the fandom can sustain itself until the next show about bestiality pops up
Plus, I'm like 80% sure that someone who worked on the show confirmed Derpy's in a few episodes later this season, and that it was a decision by the stoyboard artists to cut back on her appearances because (get this) they thought she was overused, and didn't want to fan panda.

Please stop being retarded cunts everyone and fucking stop posting in these threads.
I fucking hate you guys sometimes.
Even if this wasn't complete bullshit, Alicorn!Twi is hardly a deal-breaker for me, and I really couldn't give any less of a fuck about Derpy.
People treating Derpy as if she's an actual significant character
or a "character" at all annoys me more than her potential removal.
I'm cool with the whole Alicorn Twilight thing, as long as it ends in a Matrix Revolutions style final battle between her and Celestia.
I don't want some dumb magic 'battle' where they just show off, I want burning shards of reality being traded as they dogfight.
We're consumers and we've right to "whine". When you don't care what you're getting, people also stop caring what they give you. And then you get shit.

Alicorn Twilight is something that's been rumored for awhile.

Guys, everything that needs to be said has been said. Sage this, or don't post.
If you look at the name of the OP, you can see he is a 'calamity'. OP is probably troll.
If a random /mlp/ user got a portal to Equestria every time I read one of these thread we would all be chilling with ponies.
I'll believe it when I see it.
Alicorn Twilight to me feels about as contrived as that elements of harmony bullshit. As long as it doesn't become a permanent thing to the point where every episode revolves around it, I don't really mind.
Hasbro realized they've struck gold with MLP:FiM, and it seems extremely unlikely that they would kill the chicken that lays golden eggs. The writers were given complete freedom, and they diconnected the whole show from their toy pipeline.
I wouldn't be worried.

All the things we've been shitstorming over in the past are suddenly confirmed by some guy.
>>6506238>licsensed by hasbro>but>written and illustrated by a fan>official fanart
That's kind of funny, I just closed the thread from last night where that was first posted. The text itself is pure bullshit of course, but the thing is is that we already have ample proof for the Twilight thing, and won't be surprised about the Derpy one.
(201.18 KB, 405x475)
>>6506644>ample proof for the Twilight thing
>Ditzy being ditched is more severe than Twi becoming an alicorn
I'm not sure if this is legit but the priorities here seem backwards. Ditzy/Derpy Hooves is just a background character who the fandom likes. Her absence won't be ground-shaking unless you make it such. But Twilight Sparkle becoming an alicorn is silly if that's what is going to happen and will muddle the focus of the show going forward.
>>6506549>kill the chicken that lays golden eggs
I don't know, man. What If they decide to kill the chicken by roasting It, hoping to make a one-time deal to gain a fuckton of money from someone that wants to buy a roasted golden chicken?
So. This is bullshit or not, make sense /mlp/
It is possible because lets face it Hasbro is not the greatest Bro.
If Hasbro was a person, they would draw pedophile on your face just before walking past a school.
I would not be surprised if they did this. Also you know if they did the autistic bronies, (All bronies) would buy the toy and call it the best season ever.

>>6506668>having all this as an alicorn
Twilight, what are you doing? Twilight pls stop
i bet you're all wondering why i called you here today. i found a new plot device, uh i mean spell, that will turn me into an Alicorn!! Just like Princess Luna and Celestia
Well, we won't have to worry about this whole Season 4 being shit rumor, because some dude just told me the world is going to end on the 21st of December.
Also, jews did 9/11, Obama is from Africa and I am a rich Nigerian Prince who wants to sell you the statue of liberty.
Brb, killing myself
How much for the statue?
Fifty bits. Leave them in a paper bag in the alley behind sugarcube corner. I will mail you the statue when I get the money.
she makes a very ugly alicorn and a uglier wonderbolt.
>no confirmation on how many episodes season 4 will have.
It's probably fake anyway.
>>6506827>[irony]Obama is from Africa[/irony]>implying he isn't half Kenyan
What is most outrageous is that he self-defines as a member of the African American community when it is more likely that his black ancestors sold captives from rival tribes to the dutch.
Even if Twilight becomes an alicorn, that's something fans have been speculating would happen since season one. It's not an asspull from out of nowhere it's a natural progression of her status. She's Celestia's "faithful student," which means she must be studying for something.
Still, this sort of shit is typical of a bunch of out-of-touch suits thinking they have more insight than the people they pay to be creative. I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility.
Season 4 will also have 13 episodes. It was in an interview. Hasbro considers MLP an established series that can survive on mostly reruns, so they don't have to pump a lot of money in it. Most of their money is going into new series like LPS.
As long as he has African ancestry, he's African-American. That's why theyr'e called African Americans and not "slave descendants."
Besides, Obama doesn't need to "self-identify" as black. No one who looks at the guy is going to think he's anything but a black man. The identity was chosen for him.
If Obama wasn't famous and was just a random nobody, and you saw him walking down the street, you would NOT think "oh hey, that guy is half white." You'd think "oh, hey, a black guy."
There are far worse things that could happen to the show. Although I'm dubious about this being real, I'm not going to overreact. S3 has been good so far in terms of episodes (i.e. plots, songs, and the "extra" stuff.) so I really don't see the need to complain. Ultimately, this is just business and as long as they don't cancel the show, radically change the format or change the VAs, I'm going to be ok with most other things.

Where is the confirmation on S4? I know that the reasoning is real, but are the number of episodes, too`?
Seriously. We had someone in the old MLP Generals on /co/ claiming they were an animator back during season 1, and that Twi was going to become a Princess at the end of the FIRST season. This was like a month after the show began airing.
It's an old troll. Don't fall for it.

I swear to god this fandom has more gossip than a high school locker room.
Season 4 is definately happening, but there has been no official word of the number of episodes so far. Anyone who says they know how long Season 4 is right now is lying.
And not nearly as many naked teenage butts. FIX THIS.

>>6506827>I want sell the Statue of Liberty
it was a gift from France, I sure as hell didn't want it so thank you for doing something with it
13 episodes is what I'd bank on.

Obviously. MLP is Hasbro's most popular franchise.>Twilight becomes an Alicorn
As long as she turns evil, I'm good with it.>Derpy removed
She was just an overrated animation error that became a forced meme. Nobody really cares.
tl;dr pic related.
yeah but see its easy to ignore this drama, just go to a different board, power down your system, or do something else.
Derpy did generate a lot of cute fan content but that can continue with or without nods in the show itself.
I hope Yamino is proud of herself.>Captcha: doeonta positivity
SHUT UP CAPTCHA!!
I just hope that S3 or S4 makes an episode in which Rainbow Dash gets a boyfriend.
The spontaneous implosion and hemorroid explosion of Ponychan and all the lesbian Rainbow Dash shippers/defenders would be something to behold. There would not be enough popcorn for me.
Is that you, Groswhix Grinaez?
I actually heard Derpy was going to return as a BG pony, because the fandom keeps asking.

Ok, so if Twilight turns into an Alicorn, who then becomes the Element of Magic to complete the mane 6 again? No, Seth, itÂ´s not going to be Trixie.
That sort of Mary Sue crap is what rolls through the minds of execs who try to strongarm a show because they see it as more profitable.

If its anything like that recent episode of adventure time, that scenario actually would make me look forward to see the walls and walls of blood and shit sprayed text from Yamino and other social justicars crying over it. The best part is its something they wouldn't be able to whine out of canon like removing Derpy.
Yamino defends the lesbian Dash stuff?

>It seems we have to fight for *our* show.
Last time I checked the show wasn't meant for lonely neckbeards trapped in their basement by their own free will. It was made for young children and their parents.

Are you dipshits still going on about this unsourced rumour like it's a real thing?
Yes, but the shows target audience has shifted towards grown men troughout season 2 and 3.
Bullshit. The fandom is still clearly in the minority.
>>6507748>it was made for young children and their parents' wallets
ftfy. and Lauren Faust thought it could have lasted without forced toy cash ins, how silly.

Yeah, but she left because the execs kept forcing stuff on the show. AKA Cadence and what is on the pic.
Oh boy, when did that pop up? I'm actually quite optimistic towards a storyline involving Shining and Cadence having a kid. I'm sure the writers could make it work.
She has been around for like a year or so.
Skyla's parents have never been mentioned. Lauren wanted only two alicorns on the show, and they had full power to change that when she left in the middle of S2.
And given that we just recently had a royal wedding, well, there is the possibility that indeed we may know her parents already.
>>6507929> Skyla is an alicorn recolored Sweetie Belle.
Nope. Nope and double nope.
Well that's just the picture on the box, in the same way Fluttershy is a recoloured Rainbow Dash, because Hasbro's toy department are lazy cunts.

Speaking of which, do you guys thing that the same thing that happened with Derpy will also happen with Octavia? I mean, there are quite a few fanons which are defended fiercely by the fanon writers (read basement teenage neckbeards and shippers) and they may whine if Octavia is not portrayed in the way they "feel" is correct.> Captcha: prosecution llytall
SHUT UP CATPCHA!!!
Fuck, should've read the rest of it. (and Season 3 and everything else.) It was a good run.
If Hasbro wants to hemorrhage money by fucking up the show, that's their business. We can't prevent that. Bronies don't have a say in what Hasbro do with their own money.

Do you think that they'll use Kate's pregnancy as an excuse to add her into the show?
Someone asked about this to a Hasbro rep at NYCC. They said that it was a toy only and would not appear in the show.
Normally it might have, since it use to go Toy -> Show. Now it's the other way, Show -> Toy. Allows the two departments to do what they want because they realize that the show is popular enough that they don't have to plug toys into the show to sell them. But a storyline that sounds like it would make a good toy "the wedding". It's why the whole thing sounds like bull about Alicorn Twi being forced, we had entire threads dedicated to going on about hints in the freaking show about it.
You mean if she's not sucking on Vinyl's horn all the time?

It's happening, isn't it
Shippers will be mad if Vinyl is not also shown together with Octavia.
Yeah, but Lauren only wanted two alicorns. When she left mid-season, the execs got full control and pushed the whole Cadence and Shining Armor existing out of nowhere for the S2 finale.

>>6508444>shipper butthurt at no vinyl
Good enough reason to not show her with Octavia
I think that if twi became an alicorn temporarily in the s3 finale, that would be pretty cool. It'd be like going super saiyan for unicorns.
But I'm positive that this is a fake rumor.
Could be, could be not. Remember that Luna and Celestia opened that strange book at the end of the second episode after Twilight passed the test.
