    Fans realize something Hasbro does not: that robust 8-year-old reboots of 35-year-old billion-dollar franchises, while seemingly healthy, are in actuality as fragile as two bricks tied together with tissue paper. One mistake, one bad mis-step will cause the entire thing to shatter and fall apart; and My Little Pony would be ruined forever.

    Fortunately, there is hope. The My Little Pony fanbase has resolved to remain ever vigilant against something that could Ruin My Little Pony Forever, and call out a warning if they see something that could potentially do so.

    Some My Little Pony conservationists suggest a more extreme approach, that My Little Pony should abandon all attempts at re-invention and instead cater exclusively to the old-school fanbase. Though attractive, this approach may prove impractical as a long-term solution.

    Ruined Forever remains a serious threat to My Little Pony now and in the foreseeable future, though it's possible a proposed initiative requiring all My Little Pony fans to purchase an annual plastic offset could ensure our fragile brand's existence through the late-21st century.

    Things that have Ruined MLP Forever In The Past:
    Things that will no doubt Ruin My Little Pony forever in the future
    In other words, pretty much everything.

    Yeah, I've lived through, like, a dozen fandom apocalypses since I started watching.

    And the numerous "I'm leaving the fandom" comments.

    Honestly, fandoms are cyclycal. The more people a fandom gets, the more bad apples it has that tend to spoil it.

    When one stops to think about it, there's no such thing as a series being "ruined forever". All of that is just in a person's mind, strictly a matter of personal opinion and nothing more. Dismissing complaints about things that are supposedly "bad" from the perspective of others is one of the things that has allowed me to keep an eye on the 4th Gen for almost two years now, and so help me I'm going to see it through to the end.

    ...Though that might sound a bit hypocritical, considering I've yet to watch an episode from start to finish. :confused:

    Hahaha, I like this. I don't plan on leaving the fandom anytime soon (hopefully.) But anyways, I do agree there are quite a lot of fandoms that are indeed messed up.
