The delivery makes this.

In case you don't get the reference, Raven's voice actress is Tara Strong, whom you may also recognize as My Little Pony's Twilight Sparkle.
And I don't know if this was intentional, it probably wasn't, but the art style of Pretty Pretty Pegasus really reminds me of Curt Sibling, the notorious anti-pony artist best known for his violent-yet-sexy Hitler ponies. Granted, Curt Sibling's work is highly derivative (almost to the point of plagiarism) of earlier gonzo comic artists (particularly that guy who did all the Archie-inspired punk incest porn comics; can't recall his name offhand, but you guys know the one I mean, right?) So it's possible the animators were simply paying homage to the later underground comix movement in general.
If you put as much effort as you do into trolling, into something else, imagine all the shit you could accomplish.
They've been floating around the 'net since the days of Web 1.0; the most famous one was a short comic about a mom who caught her son jerking off to a porno mag, and decided to teach him how to do it right. For me, at least, they were some of the first truly batshit things I'd ever seen on the internet, so they stuck with me. I can't for the life of me recall the name of the artist; it was a really distinctive style, and many years later I happened across some of his other, non-pornographic work in... I wanna say a blurb in Juxtapoz? Dunno, don't remember that either. Anyway, I was like, hey, that looks like the punk rock incest guy! And sure enough it was. But now I've forgotten his name again, and it's pissing me off, and it's going to keep me up all night, not to mention ruin my Adsense data. (I'll let you know if I find him again)
Anyway, SolRo, I just want to stress that I am in no way defending Curt Sibling. That would be trolling, I agree! Mr Sibling is a bit of an asshole, and his work has far too much affected 3dginess for me. It's angsty and desperate, like a tweenage age Juggalo who thinks that swearing alone will make him "shocking", and thus worthy of attention. His art style is also far too reminiscent of others in the underground/pop art movement; it lacks "distinction", yet aspires towards an aesthetic that demands this quality.
That said, underneath all the eye-rollingly angsty bullshit, his work does have an underlying warmth and sense of humor. What's more, his art style, derivative though it may be, is no more derivative than that of any of the other prominent GrimDark pony fanartists (Apple.Mov's shameless aping of John K springs to mind). I don't LOVE Sibling's ouvre, but I don't DISLIKE it, either. He is probably the best producer of Grim-Dark My Little Pony fan work currently in operation. Whether or not you agree with his politics or his RAMPANT PONYPHOBIA, he deserves a fair assessment, and there's nothing trollish about me saying so.
Plus his human ponies are pretty damn hot.
SolRo, what more could anyone possibly hope to accomplish than that?

I hated Teen Titans but this is funny stuff.
|ashtar. - 2013-10-23 |
that is horse shit, counter all Reaven personality, fuck this show
Bring back the original! god!
Okay, here's the thing, Teen Titans and My Little Pony should be, separate. They should let Teen Titans be Teen Titans and My Little Pony be My Little Pony, NOT the two mixing together into diarrhea.
And this was the first scene to get people to follow the rest of the show. Great job guys I hope the both of you are fucking fired.
There is no majority. There's somehow just about as many who love this and hate it. And I don't know if you've been paying attention but THIS SHOW HAS GOTTEN SO MUCH NEGATIVE FEEDBACK! I'm not the only person who thinks this show sucks. No one wanted Ponies in this episode, aside from maybe some bronies. Hell, there are Bronies that are OFFENDED by this. Check out Benthelooney's vid on this and you'll see why.
Bentheloony's video is well worth a watch. (spoilers: he's mad because the girls aren't drawn sexy enough)

Surprise! Brony's are so emotionally fragile and insecure that they can't handle jokes about their terrible show by the same people that made that terrible show in the first place. Oh well, anything to get them to get out of the basement, eh?
It's not the bronies that have the problem, it's the.. I dunno what you call them, Titanies? Apparently the show has gained a large brony fanbase because of stuff like this, but the indigenous Teen Titans fans feel marginalized.
Bronies were fucking celebrating this scene. It's a cute parody and a nice casting reference.
It was hated by the corner of the internet that is terrified to be exposed to anything pony-related for fear of losing their masculinity.
Because Teen Titans, with its bright colors and cute chibi anime people, has always been manly as hell.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
There's an entire episode dedicated to mocking the fan-pairing of Beast Boy and Raven, it's great.

Butterbean is best pegasus.
Fuck Butterbean. Glittertwat is superior.
Glittertwat is a fan character and doesn't count.
If we're talking fan characters, then I'm going to pick Nyx.
Nyx isn't even a pegasus, she's an alicorn.
Do you see now why we don't allow people to choose fan characters as their favorites?
SHE'S REAL TO ME, DAMMIT.

torture, torture it pleasures me!
I would like to see the slave girl, very much

That was great.

I disagree with people who think that chris-chans trolls, for example, are a sad as chris-chan.
Knowing the specific ins and outs and infighting in the brony community is like a thousand times sadder than actually being a brony... which in and of itself is reason enough to commit suicide.
It seems crazy to me how something that started off as a poor, forced troll meme became prevalent enough that the degenerate weirdos who actually like the show and are into fucking cartoon horses started to feel accepted enough to spread this garbage all over the internet.
TL;DR you're into something that started off as a way to goof on you.
