Well, you were the first person to talk to me in the rift cafe and honestly I was actually scared about joining it in the first place, because I thought that it would have all of the famous analysts like VoiceOfReason and AnYPony, and it would be hard to talk to them. But, then I found out that those guys have a different site or something, and it helped feel better about joining the Rift, and you were willing to help me and give me answers to many questions and things that I didn't even know about. So, thank you for your time and patience of helping me learn more about the Rift Cafe, and feeling accepted.
Meeting your idols for the first time can be nerve wracking, but after you get past that initial fear, you can get to know them on a more personal level. I remember the first time one of the more popular Bronalysts noticed me, and I spent at least a few hours trying to figure out what to say back. When that happens to you, just be yourself. I've only been in this fandom for about a year and a half, and I've already made some good friends.
I am very happy to know that you are one of the good bronies in the community, and that you understand how I am feeling. I was worried that when I first joined this group, that I would say something bad or something everyone disagreed about, and then I would be shunned by the entire community for it, like what happened to MisAnthro Pony, when he made those rants about other brony analysts, like Goldenfox, and then almost the entire community got angry at him about it, because of what was happening at the time with Goldenfox and Keyframe, but I think it was wrong of them to do that to MisAnthro Pony, because he did not know about the situation, and he made a mistake, but noone seems to get that. Just, because you make of someone, and then find out about the situation, you should be able to apologize for what you said, and hope that they forgive you, and leave it at that, but apparently the community likes to overdramatize any that is bad that goes on in the community, and I feel like people should do something about that, because I don't want to accidentally say something wrong in one of my videos, and everyone hates me for it. That is why I don't want to become an analyst yet, because I am worried that I will let down my hero's, and I will be cast away from the community, and also, because I don't have the time for it right now, because of high school, and marching band at the moment, but once I am out of high school, I want to become a brony analyst, and help inspire others to be like me, and be a part of the next brony generation, because I know that Silver Quill and Drwolf001 aren't going to be making videos forever, and it will happen with all the current brony analysts and artists, unless your 17 or 18, or just got out of high school.
Unfortunately, this fandom really does like to overdramatize. But so does every other one. If people ever get angry at you because of a video you make, that doesn't mean you should give up making videos altogether. It sounds like you want to make videos because you enjoy it, and because you want to inspire others. I don't think anyone should stop you from doing what you love. You are very correct about the Bronalysts of this generation not being here forever. When they are gone, people are going to need other Bronalysts; younger but still talented ones. I feel like you should at least try to become a Bronalyst whenever you feel the time is right, and if it's not your thing then you don't have to continue.
That is some very wise words, and I am sorry if i am taking time away from your artwork or making videos. It is just nice to have someone to talk to about MLP, that won't make fun of the show or me, because I live in a place where people don't care much bronies. They don't hate bronies, but they also, don't like them. I am also sorry for making you have to type paragraphs everytime I need to talk to you.
I have been talking to some bronies on Youtube and I even got a message from MisAnthro Pony, although it was about something very serious, and it was on his video that he made about Corpulent Brony saying that Fallenwish is a liar about the fundraiser thing. I honestly can't believe that people say such hurtful things about each other, especially from people who base their lives around a t.v. show about horses. God, I hate when people say that it is just a t.v. show about horses. If MLP was just a show about horses, then I am pretty sure that we all wouldn't be bronies, and noone would be making that fine and excellent artwork. By the way, I can't believe you won that artwork contest for ComicSansPony. I think it looks great, and it matches the series perfectly.
Word of advice: If you want to avoid drama outright, you have to agree with those who are influential all the time and never speak your mind when you think they're in the wrong. If you have a problem that you can't stand at all, leave without saying a word and don't bring up the issue to anyone. Also of course, never get involved when someone else starts it.
I keep getting into drama because I'm a very outspoken individual and have several antisocial personality traits. I doubt you'll have much trouble yourself though. Just stay calm, don't act overbearing and don't speak your mind about that sort of stuff.
I can't believe this. Now bronies like ComicSansPony want to make Dog OC's of themselves. I was gonna make my OC a dog, because of the whole Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing. Now I am gonna have to find another animal to be my OC. I need an animal OC for my Dr. Brony side, and I was thinking about doing a human, obviously, for my Mr. Human side, but the human side would be evil and murderous like Mr. Hyde. The more I see of fanart of everyone trying to be every single animal in the show, the more my Mr. Human side wants to come out, and when he does he will be taking a branding iron to all of your brony butts.
Also, it says in the wikipedia that the Rift Cafe has a Secret Basement Strip Club founded by GoldenFox and run by FallenWish. Why is it never shown in any of the Brony analysts videos. Maybe you guys don't know about it or you guys do know about it and are just worried about getting in trouble. But, I still do like to watch the Brony analyst reviews and other videos on MLP:FIM.
