Stone me all you want, Bronies. As much as I wanna love you guys, you're just really spoiled with tons of awesome stuff while the IZ fandom and many other fandoms get barely anything. And when we do end up complaining about it, we get bashed for it. But when the MLP:FIM fandom complains about something, everyone joins in. Really?



Ok, one of my friends from school is a brony and we were talking about fandoms and what not and...I mentioned that I was in the IZ fandom...apparently he claims that it is a "Sub-Fandom"...are you freaking kidding me, Joshua? Is there even such thing as a "Sub-Fandom"? I took offense to that and just ended the topic right there, because you know how much I love this fandom..and to be called a sub-fandom is like...a huge insult for some reason.
He thinks the IZ fandom is "dead" all in all. He also claimed that the Brony fandom was pretty much a "god" fandom.
PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE DICKING WITH ME. Which brings us to this topic.

As much as I love bronies...I can't help but feel they're REALLY spoiled as hell.
First of all, they complain that they have to wait a couple weeks for the new season to come out. Are you fucking kidding me. IZ has been cancelled for over 12 years now and are we Zim fans complaining? Hell no.
Also, They get EVERY PONY on all their merchandise. What do we Zim fans get? Gir. Ugh, that horrible robot.
Then, you bronies get all your fanmusic, fanart, fanfics, and FAN EPISODES, while the IZ fandom just has fanart, fanfics, and ONLY ONE fan episode.

So, bronies. Quit complaining and enjoy your fandom while you can. You're fucking lucky you get all this. The IZ fandom has been wanting fan music, fan episodes, and at least a new season for IZ to come out. But again...we aren't complaining about that.

Frankly, I dislike MLP;FiM immensely; not just the show, but most of the actual fandom, as well. For one, a good handful of them, at least on dA, seem to be underaged, immature kids who over-react to everything and post official art or recolours of official art and claim it as their own. And the show is just...Boring and predictable. The characters are all really overly-sweet with hardly any character flaws, and they just seem really underdeveloped.

 

IZ, my main fandom, isn't without its flaws, though. :\ Much like MLP, a lot of fans on this website, and others, are very young, and don't understand that there is more to the show than just GIR. Not to mention that there are rabid fans out there who are hell-bent on getting the show back. Sure, I really enjoy the show, and it certainly would be awesome to have new episodes being made, but I really don't believe for one second that anything that people have organized is going to work. Granted, I give them a TON of respect for taking all of the time and effort to set up something like that; good on them. But Jhonen himself has stated on multiple occasions that he doesn't wish to return to Invader ZIM or Nickelodeon, with one reason being that, by the time the second season rolled around, Nick was becoming so controlling that they tried to change and rewrite everything that Jhonen had written for the show. Long story short, the episodes that we received were likely highly watered-down versions of what Vasquez originally created. This being said, it's unlikely that, if the show somehow did manage to start up again, that it would be much like we remember it being, since Jhonen was obviously a huge part of the show. And, even if the plot was miraculously recreated fairly well, Nick would likely try to make it more tame, especially in today's age. I can't imagine that Nick would allow something like, "Dark Harvest" to appear on TV again, since everyone is so touchy today about what's being put into kids' heads.

 

However, I really like the fan-made episode(s) that have been created by Soapy Waffles. I really commend them for their hard work; I can only imagine how much time, effort, artistic skill, and brain power must go into creating even one second of animation, let alone an entire episode. x)

 

TL;DR, Basically, if dA was Facebook, I would be 'liking' this journal a million times. The points that you made are very accurate. :3

I like both fandoms but it's really unfair that the MLP fanbase are getting more attention than the IZ fanbase.

To be honest, I like underated shows more than popular shows.
