Party of One
Let's face it: we're not a part of the community just because the show is good. Yes, it has good animation, great writing, awesome music and voice acting, likeable characters, an interesting world, etc etc etc. But what about other cartoons today? Phineas and Ferb? Adventure Time? Legend of Korra? All of those are also high-quality kid's shows that adults enjoy as well. No, the thing that makes My Little Pony stand out is that it defies expectations. When we first heard about it, we all thought it would just be a crappy girl's show. But it taught us to be open-minded. It teaches us that we can find common ground in people we thought were too different from us (I've managed to emphathize with Rarity quite easily, even though I know zilch about fashion). That's what makes Friendship is Magic so special.
I'm Bobert. I write fanfiction!
