Bronies have done many good things. Donations, conventions, friendship, etc. But do they sometimes take things too far?
It’s definitely true, some of us get a little obsessed with the show over time. Where is my proof, you ask? Simply perform a google search about the show and you’ll see. Hundreds and thousands of posts, pictures, art, music, all about the show. Of course, not all of these are submitted by obsessed bronies, but that’s beside the point.
What leads to a brony being ‘obsessed’ with the show?
Well, my theory is simple: it is a result of not having a wide enough field of interest in similar television shows. I take my example from the show itself. For instance, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle’s similar appreciation for the Daring Do book series.
Twilight Sparkle shares the personality and attitude of a typical fan who has a wide variety of interests. She is a fan of the Daring Do series, but due to the fact that she reads many other books, she isn’t exactly obsessed with the series.
Rainbow Dash, however, probably only reads the Daring Do series. As such, it being her one interest in the literature field, she is more likely to be obsessive over it. She is the type that would write fanfictions, produce art, and all those like things on a regular basis.
What is my point, you ask?
Don’t rely solely on FiM for entertainment, guys. There are other television shows out there that can offer good stories, interesting character development, and good humor as well. Don’t just tie yourself to this one show; liking other things won’t make you any worse a brony.
