Yes, it's true, I happen to be a casual fan of the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cartoon series...

"LIES!!", shouts the internet, "You are far more than a casual fan! The plushie is proof!"

But no, the plushie is only proof that I like plushies, which isn't a big surprise. Anyone who knows me to any extent knows that plushies, in general, are one of my most favourite things. If you want to know more about my Gigantastic Fluttershy Plushie, then check out my post of it here on DA.

As for how I even got into MLP:FiM, well, here's my story:

Firstly, I was never a fan of the original series (and even now I still find the art style of the original MLP stuff creepy) because it was way too pointless and I couldn't identify with the characters... plus I was 5 or 6 years old at the time and too busy being a boy afraid of cooties.  : P

Then, not too long ago, nearing the end of the first season of Ancient DOS Games though still a number of weeks away, one of my friends had really gotten into the new pony series. At first, I didn't really think anything of it, I just figured, "Sure, there'll be guys who like it. I already have one male friend who does so why not another?"

But then, as the weeks passed I noticed many of the places I frequented online showing more and more random things related to MLP:FiM, and this made me extremely curious because I couldn't for the life of me understand why all these references were popping up for what I assumed was (and was originally intended as) a show for young girls.

So I had my friend recommend a couple episodes to me. He chose "Party of One", which was the latest episode at the time (and the second-last of the first season) and "Look Before You Sleep" which was the 8th episode of the first season and one of his favourites, though he admitted it wasn't really a fan favourite. In any case, lacking a way to rapidly check out these particular episodes legitimately, I loaded up YouTube and gave 'em a watch.

At first I was impressed and thought, "Yeah, I can see why people like this. Overall it's a well done cartoon. Not completely pointless, believable character interactions, genuine humour, fun art style..."

...and then the next day I found myself watching the first seven episodes in a row. XD

It's obviously not for everyone. Firstly, it IS a cartoon, and not a lot of adults, let alone teenagers, are into cartoons. I however, still like 'em, as I still routinely watch some nostalgic ones like the Super Mario Brothers Super Show and Captain Bucky O'Hare, and check out new ones every so often though I must admit, I much prefer the older ones I grew up with.

Secondly, its extreme popularity over the internet can itself be a turn-off for some people. I've noticed a couple people are slowly drifting away from MLP:FiM stuff specifically because it's gotten so popular and thus doesn't have that same sort of specialness to them anymore. That never stopped my interest in Pokémon... what stopped my interest in Pokémon was the lack of innovation and the constant adding of more creatures as opposed to building on the lore of the ones that they already had. (Hey, Nintendo, ever heard of this thing called "Quality vs. Quantity"?)

Thirdly, some people are just simply not interested in it. It happens. They're not wrong or stupid or anything, everyone likes different things. Most of the people I know have no interest in MLP:FiM and that's perfectly fine. We all have different tastes and just because I like MLP:FiM doesn't mean everyone else has to.

Anyways, sorry I haven't been posting on DA much. Been extremely busy with stuff and in the process of catching up on things due to being sick for a couple weeks prior. I have a new game in the works too called Vectorzone which I have a page for on my website, which I've barely been able to get any work done on lately but hopefully I'll be able to get another alpha version out by the end of next week.

Also, 11 more regular episodes of Ancient DOS Games to go before I reach 100. Craziness!  : D

Didn't remember you at first as I hear from first-time fans of my work on a regular basis, mostly outside of DA. Had to go back and look at your profile to find the comment I made on it.  : B

Me personally, I'm not typically all that active here on DA, as you can tell by how old my latest actual art and journal posts are, plus I have a fan base outside of DA with the other stuff I do including web videos and game design, so don't expect any super-personal conversations with me or anything, but if you've got any questions related to the stuff I've made and released online, feel free to ask.  ; )

Not really my kind of art, but if you enjoy making it that's what ultimately matters!  ; )

Say Gemini, have you ever created any custom level sets for the DOS version of Arkanoid 2?

A long time ago when the DOS port was still brand new. It's one of the few games I've long since lost my original disks for though and I believe the copy I have on hand has been hacked to be easier it's supposed to be.  : /

Sorry, but flower photos aren't exactly my thing. Which isn't to say they're bad photos or anything; on the contrary, they're pretty good and I'm sure you'll find a bunch of people here on DA who'll be interested in them!  : )
