So, little by little, I've been showing my friend MLP. I've known her since we were in 6th grade, and part of our friendship involves getting each other into the other's fandom. Sometimes, it's a total miss. (She never got into Cats, the musical, but at least she would go see the shows with me. But I never got into Prince of Tennis, so it evens out.) Sometimes we change the course of each other's lives (I got her into Sailor Moon years ago when we first met, she got me into Phantom of the Opera. Now she's a huge anime buff and I'm a big musical lover.)
The only thing is, I have a tendency to gush about all the little fan details when watching the episodes, so she only wants to watch it if I'm watching it with her. Which is fun, but also painfully slow to get her up to speed.
Every time we finish our little pony marathons, (which usually consists of maximum 4 episodes, cause we end up talking about it and other things all the time) I ask her what she thinks. Every time so far, she's been saying, "It's okay!"
This last time, we finished Stare Master, I asked her what she thought, and her answer was, "It's really fun!! I like looking for all the little details." She's pointing out background characters like a baws! She's bringing up "Trollestia" before me, and she's finding the way Equestria works very amusing. She even noticed the winged Doctor Whooves in the Best Fliers Competition! She thought it was hilarious that the Pegasus have to hoof-make each individual snowflake. And she really liked the Sonic Rainboom episode.
So...I'm glad ^_^ Now she knows what all the fuss is about. Then maybe I can fangirl with another fangirl in person on Saturday mornings when watching the new episodes! Eee! That would be awesome!
Working on the last chapter of Romance. Have a bunch of half finished pictures that just aren't looking right, yet, that I have to someday put up. And requests....HAVE to finish those requests. I've been editing a lot of people's fics for them, so it's really slowed down my progress. Editing is slow for me even when it's my OWN fic, let alone someone else's. But taking a hiatus on that so I can do my stuff.
...I talk too much...
