How's this for bad times getting worse?
When I was a kid, my idea of a shit but fun fantasy story was one where Ash Ketchum or Naruto or some other male protagonist trained harder, got stronger, found out he was also born with special abilities to make him even stronger, and proceeded to solve all the world's problems and kick ass during fights while fucking literally all the bitches.
But on at least one fucking level, even people who completely rewrote the Naruto setting and its characters into something unrecognizable had some level of respect for at least some of their characters. There was an attempt to tell a story and an attempt to coom combined.
Being the hero, growing to become the hero, making friends out of enemies and impressing bitches to fuck, these were part of the young man's fantasy.
But this fucking fandom's idea of a fantasy is "It's the year 2050 and society is even worse, however My Twilight Sparkle(TM) Fleshlight comes to life and fucks me".
Even in their fantasies, they're fucking pathetic. Because getting all the bitches and the easy life without having to grow up and put away childish things like fantasy has become the fantasy itself.
When I posted my stories here, they were rightfully criticized for all the legitimate writing problems in them.
When I posted my stories on fanfiction.net and MLP Forums, my stories were criticized for not being general-audiences coombait where a generic human enters equestria generically and replaces my unique OC and all the cool but conflicting things I wanted to do with him at different times go right out the fucking window.
Cock-gobbling NPCs genuinely thought their coom-focused understanding of literature was valid.
"Teh brony fandom" is a fucking circlejerk of... How many people are even left in the dying left-wing echo chambers every site has become?
Fuck this, I'm tired of bitching about how much I fucking hate bronies.
You ever heard of Guilty Gear?
It's a fighting game series.
Those games aren't known for their stories, but I bring it up because they feature a villain named...
Ariels/The Pope/Sanctus Maximus Populi/St. Maximus/The Universal Will.
Once upon a time, someone found a room full of magic, entered it, and wished for a benevolent magic being to guide humanity to a better future without harming anyone.
Ariels is the result of that wish trying and failing to fulfill both of these objectives at once.
How do you guide humanity's evolution and cultural development without bloodshed? Humans are imperfect and perfection is impossible.
Ariels The Pope eventually comes to the conclusion that humanity doesn't actually exist.
Not yet, anyway. Not officially.
She decides the "Humanity" right now is a stupid shitty precursor to the perfect humans she will create once she has finished cleansing this world of humans, which she has genuinely come to loathe and enjoy hurting for fun.
And that's it.
That's the evil AI villain killing humanity for fun while creating evil cloned chicks from Sol's dead girlfriend's body.
She might not even feel like actually creating the Perfected Humanity after all humans are gone, as she says to the bed guy to piss him off at one point. That's not a typo, there's a Guilty Gear character named Bedman and he's fucking epic.
This AI makes more sense than CelestAI, has a more consistent goal than CelestAI, and is more believable than CelestAI.
It's a magical AI force-of-nature thing that decides to hide its body in plain sight as the pope.
And this is more believable than CelestAI's "I hid my computers in space and under the earth's crust, I made deals with other countries to get my brain-in-jar bullshit legalized there and no other country felt like putting up blockades around that country because convenience!" bullshit.
It's simpler, it's elegant, there's no need for tiny Pinkie Pie robots or the consumption of planets or nonsensical Emigration To Equestria buildings that are magically so bomb-proof it turns the mudslimes into Celestia-worshippers overnight.
Fuck the entire pony fandom except this site.
And fuck "Brony Culture" completely except this site.
I'm sitting here looking at a list of everything I want in my story, everything I want to say with my story, and even though I threw out the literal pandering shite chapters like Lyra and Bonbon being minor characters with occasional speaking roles, I'm left wondering how much of the shit I want in this story was just added to impress those coomstains.
Maybe it's because I haven't fapped to anything in so long but I feel awake. I feel like I've been sleepily accepting all the shit around me for years but I get a little more awake and a little more tired of all this bullshit every day.
Half-assed stories are able to do shit better than the worse ones because it's all so fucking easy in retrospect.
When I saw the whiny snivelling snot-nosed bronies and their "I die and go to Equestria and I'm still hated and abused by everyone and Flutters gives me pity-sex" and "I literally buy power and someone else's fantasy at a fucking convention so I'm no longer me any more I'm Alucard and he fucks ponies" and shallow one-note "Character X sad, character Y comforts" shite and all these other stories that exist to put a spin on the best-selling author's coombrain-genre fiction factory mould that is "I instantly become the god of this childish playset and fuck the plastic dolls"...
Oh, they think fantasy is their specialty. But they merely adopted using fantasy to escape modernity; I was born in an era of marginally better fantasy, molded by it. I didn't see the coomfags until I was already a man, and by then they were nothing to me but BLINDINGLY STUPID!
