Well the thing is they’re porn/fetish artists so they’ve already made a reputation off of lewding these characters and/or they like being in the fandom way better than following the show.
But the stereotype surrounding boys isn’t that. The media sees boys as edgy and gross.
I think for these guys including other fans of the old Changelings, they loved them because they were a form of monster ponies that were officially made by the show. The core design of a basic Changeling fascinated them since they felt they were the perfect blend of edgy and cute. Other than cameos, the Changelings were used in three two-parter episodes and then transformed into the Changelings we see today. Those fans felt like they were robbed from the one thing that interested in the show, well at least in Badumsquish’s case, first Starlight Glimmer became a mainstay and then his monster ponies were taken from him. I’m surprised he never ragequitted the show. Other people see the reformed Changelings as the writers thinking that “black equals evil and we can’t have that!, and turned those designs into “some of the most bland and pointless ones in the entire show.”
Rainbow Dash never cared about what Quibble Pants’ race was but more of what side of Daring Do they were into. Unless you’re referring to Quibble’s determination to win over his girlfriend and possible stepdaughter.
That could be right. The fandom bled SO MANY fans after the second and third seasons who weren’t tolerant of their expectations of the show’s direction to go in a way they couldn’t adjust to. By the time the movie and Season 8 came around, a lot of talented fans had already left.
I think that’s pretty cool regarding yourself. But you can’t blame in hoping for some shock value in G5, right?
