Holy shit this is gorgeous.
So I went to Walmart to get food and another candle for my room and the kid’s section had this.
So I bought it.
I AM VERY AMUSED AT A HORSE USING A WALKER.
Sorry I figured I deserved something happy after all the tooth problems I’ve been having XD
Yes kid I am a whiney spoiled brat because I attempted to leave this person advice on how to take and expect critique and how to expand their horizons.
I did it because I’M A MEAN INTERNET TROLL.
NOT BECAUSE I HAVE LIKE. AN ACTUAL ART DEGREE THAT’S DISPLAYED ON MY WALL RIGHT NOW. AND THAT I WISHED I GOT ADVICE AS A TEEN SO I’M TRYING TO DO THAT FOR OTHERS WHICH I DIDN’T GET.
I’m blocked from their page so I can’t defend myself (of course) but still I keep coming back because of glorious fan comments like this.
Been posted before but will repost because his gaze stares into my soul.
Why would you do this.
I know it’s ponies, but I’m posting this here because this person has such a beautiful vector style, and I’d like to try and emulate some of that into my own vector work.
Since I bitch on furc on the most part, I haven’t really bothered much to type up work stories. But seeing some extra awful brony things floating around, I decided to share a story that happened about a week ago.
So I’m working express lane, and some guy comes through my line. He’s the typical unwashed dude that looks and smelled like he slept in his clothes, and was just buying candy and energy drinks. I happened to notice that he was wearing a shirt that had Derpy Hooves on it, in a pile of muffins.
Of course I couldn’t stop myself.
“Oh! That’s Derpy!” I say.
This guy’s face lights up like a damn billboard.
“MUFFINS!” he grins as he stares at me.
“Uhhhh….” that’s not quite the response I was expecting. Most nerds that come through my lines usually say something along the lines of ‘it’s nice to see other people liked the show!” and then leaves.
But this guy.
Starts talking nonstop.
He went on and on about how he bought all the pony shirts from Welovefine and how his favorite pony is Rarity and how hot Luna is and how she needed more screen time and MUFFINS MUFFINS MUFFINS HURR HURR.
To move him along I told him I liked Applejack and of course he had to go on about her being ‘hot’.
And then he asked if I had a boyfriend, and what time I get off work.
NOPE NOPE THAT’S RED FLAG CREEP ALERT.
I told him to move along so I can serve other customers after i did tell him firmly that yes, I have a boyfriend. And he just stood off to the side and stared at me with a grin on his face the whole time.
And then the next day HE CAME BACK and just stared some more.
Luckily I haven’t seen him since.
But the thing is. I want nothing to do with the brony fandom. I just want to enjoy the cartoon and watch it with my niece once in a while. MLP is a wonderful show to watch with younger kids, so you can talk to them about the messages in the show, and just watch it with them to spend time with them. I like Applejack because I value honesty and being strong and faithful.
And then here comes the slathering fanbase that hypersexualizes ponies and HARASSES ME AT WORK because god forbid A GIRL, LIKES A SHOW MADE FOR GIRLS. WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT.
But now because of that the T-shirts i wanted to get? Nope, ain’t happening. I will not show anywhere on my person that I even know what the show is, so I can keep the creepers away.
I’LL JUST BE OVER HERE BY MY LONESOME, DOODLING PONIES, AND NEVER EVER TELLING ANYONE ALOUD.
