So, my daughters have started watching the new My Little Pony, which I thought, "Eh, whatever," because it's just really unlike them, but - fandom. Who can explain it? It wasn't very long before they had recruited their brother, and now he is, apparently, a brony.

I find this somewhat amusing, but again - fandom. Who can explain it?

So I'm checking out the flist the other day and see that willowgreen has mentioned that her 15 year old boy is a brony, too. Well there you go. And she created him a My Little Pony BuffyVerse image. Sweet!

I was telling the kids about it last night, and we ended up talking about how MLP has apparently been merged into any number of fandoms. Well. I told JazzyGirl right there and then, if she drew me John and Rodney as ponies, I would be more than happy to use the image for wallpaper on my laptop. This inspired a heated debate over what types the different Atlantis personnel would - earth ponies, unicorns or Pegasus.

Well DUH. We all know John loves to fly. No brainer.

This further devolved into discussion over what the cutie marks would be. I figured that Rodney's would be a ZPM. Teyla would probably be sticks. John, though... an image of Atlantis? A Puddlejumper? We finally decided it would probably be a surfboard.

Also, we decided Wraith ponies would be fuuuugly. *shudders* Perhaps they would be dragons. Who knows?

These are the conversations that take place in Casa del Shad.

*sigh*

All *I* know is that they've got this image in my head now, and I gotta ask; there's a LOT of crack fic out there. Has anyone every come across My Little Pony/SGA fic? Cuz, seriously. regardless of how wrong it might be, I'd have to read it.

*has mental image of black stallion with a REALLY SPIKY MANE and a chestnut stallion with an attitude horsing around in a large paddock*

If it doesn't exist, then YOU"LL HAVE TO WRITE IT. Oh, yessssssss, my preciousssss, no getting out of it.

'Cuz, "Casa del Shad" encompasses the "Mind del Shad".

And I'm giggling like mad, because ... "brony"?!?!?!?!?

Yeah. IDEK. It's boy MLP fans. Bro + Pony = Brony.

Who knew?

I just sit here and and listen and nod and do not mock the fandom because - fandom. Who can explain it?

Also, his grandmother provided ample mockage on the weekend, so. He doesn't need any more for me.

But OMG, MLP, WTF? I do not grok the appeal.

Hee! As you said, "Fandom. Who can explain it?" MLP first started getting big when I was still a wee one, and I got three of the suckers for my birthday one year. I'm sure I was polite about it, but my general reaction was, "WTF are these?"
