Guy on OKC when told I’ve cosplayed Derpy Hooves:
"Did you wear a tail? Did you walk around on all fours?"
"Uh, no, why?"
"Because then I could check out your ass."
That was my face while reading that.
Oh. Hey. Didn’t see you’d actually replied to this till juuuuuust now. Awkwaaaaaaaard.
Early on the fandom was really cool - a lot of creative types, people enthusiastic about something -uplifting-…but god. You hear the stories, you see the “white nationalist ponies” bullshit…
You have to keep your distance.
