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 totally understand that. They really do create some awesome stuff but I just hate how high and mighty Bronies think of themselves. I have to admit though I find it a but weird for boys to be into MLP but then again I understand why. I really like the MLP art style. I dont judge people for their fandom's. I respect other fandom's even if I dont support them. But seriously take a chill pill bros.

Originally, i watched My little pony *fim (and even the older ones xD)* because i liked the show, I never really got into the fandom, but i've now discovered that they are exactly as you say, spoiled, there always bickering and complaining about one thing or another, but i know, it happens in all fandoms, including ours but these are "tiny things" they are arguing and ranting over.
We have much bigger issues than them in our fandom, and all though their motto is to love and tolerate, our fandom seems to be doing more of that than theirs.

I agree. YES, I am a brony, but I don't like to get involved in the fandom too much. I really like the IZ fandom. I feel more at home for some reason... I think bronies need to shut up and be thankful that they get as much as they do. Even though Invader Zim had only 1 1/2 seasons, I'm still thankful for every episode since we have so little. And now that MLP is so popular, It's all over hot topic ALL OVER. EVERY PONY ALL OVER. Yes, Gir used to be all over the place, but it was only GIR. Just today, I went in Hot Topic, and I found a Zim shirt, and it said "I will rule you all with an iron fist," and that's one of the main Zim shirts I've seen in a while. And a brony would complain that there isn't enough of applejack on tshirts... And they've probably made at least 20 for her.... Serously?

I feel that Zim needs a little more attention and credit. He did pretty damn well at being such a popular character....

Well said man! :highfive: I don't mind GIR but CMON! We need more than just one character.

I was lucky enough to even FIND my Zim plush,and that's why he's one of my most beloved possessions, if I lost him..I..I don't even.

I also have an IZ charm bracelet with most of the characters on it,a purse with Zim holding the world and GIR beside him holding a rubber pig on it,and a shirt with famous quotes from Zim and GIR with pictures of GIR and Zim on it.

I have the seasons on DVD aswell,and I'm still hopeful that they renew the show at some point,we NEED more.

But bronies...freaking rediculous...I'm not saying all of them are like that but..yeah.

Well said. Clap  I agree completely. And the invader zim fandom being considered a "sub-fandom" is pretty degrading. I believe Zim has one of the biggest fandoms of Nickelodeon next to Avatar, so to me that just doesn't make any sense. No, I disagree!

This is a very good rant!
I have never watched Invader Zim, but I'm sure it's a show with much more sense than a cartoon about ponies and their magical friendship that won't actually teach children anything at all.
The fact that Invader Zim was created earlier than the newest pony generation already proves that Invader Zim has more fans to it and therefore the fandom will never "die".
Most bronies are pretty...retarded. And find their precious show and fandom the only thing to matter and remain on this damn planet.
Even Supernatural has twice the fans MLP has, and at least Supernatural deserves them. But I don't ever see a Supernatural fan running around and screaming "SUPERNATURAL FANDOM 4 LYF ALL THE REST GO TO HELL". :I
