My Little Brony - Assimilation is Magic by PerfectBlue97 My Little Brony - Assimilation is Magic by PerfectBlue97
I'm going back to basics for this one. Stick-Men: the purest form of comic expression.

This was inspired by a thread on EQD about what makes somebody part of a particular "fandom", and whether you get to choose if you're a part of it or not.

Oh, and by Star Trek.

Anyway...

Drawn in Inkscape and compiled in Photoshop.

Everything her is scratch drawn, except for the logo at the top of the page which is adapted from the logo crated by Flutterbr0 9[link]).

The Font on the logo comes from this webpage ([link]). It's the first link. Sorry, I don't know the name of the artist.

I know that it's not very easy to see in the low-def upload, but the green things are meant to be tentacles stabbing into the hater and transforming them. Not some kind of weird green energy.

I guess that I've been watching too much Hentai, again. Haven't I?

"A little creepy that you know about my sister"
Yes, yes it is xD

Do you remember the gist of the article that inspired this?

To be honest, I don't really remember much about the thread at all. I think that somebody was arguing that they were a fan of the show but didn't like the fandom because they found bronies to be creepy or annoying (I'm not exactly sure what it was, but they didn't like bronies). So they argued that they could like the show without being a member of the fandom. Other people disagreed and said that simply being a fan of the show, and being the same demographic as the fandom (basically, bronies) made them part of the fandom. Whether they claimed membership or not, the fandom made them part of it.

I kind related this to borg assimilation, but not in a nasty way.

I pretty much drew this on a whim and didn't think too deeply about it.

Gonna be honest, first five episodes all kinda suck, or at least really are aimed at little kids. It picks up in quality quickly after that.

I don't know, I really liked Griffon the Brush off.

Though, I will agree that things did get better the longer the season went on, and Season 2 was AWESOME.

season three is my favorite. 
The Season 4 finale was pretty good though, with a legitimately disturbing villain.

Stick figures are best figures. Great for getting people to understand how important wording and posing is so they don't become completely dependant on facial expressions to convey feeling.

... Also I really love violence XD GO STICK FIGURES GO!

Personally, I count the Federation as villains, too. If there was a villain that I could really come to hate, it would be them.

Since the latter part of TNG and DS9 (Including the movies), they seem to have become a metaphor for Western imperialism. They have all of these high minded ideals, and they try to force them onto other species, while denying that they are.

As Eddington said in DS9 "You know, in some ways you're even worse than the Borg. At least they tell you about their plans for assimilation."

At least the Federation still instills a certain sense of democracy and freedom of choice while the Borg, and other empires like the Klingons and the Romulans, don't give you that choice.

PerfectBlue97 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The thing is ... "a certain sense of democracy" is often all that you get. Somebody tells you that you are free to make your own choices, but the system is wired in such a manner that the only way that you can get on in life is to walk a narrow tightrope of what society\the government consider acceptable. If you step out of line, then the illusions get washed away and society\the state turns on you.

You're DA profile says that you live in Canada. Which is a fairly big country with a fairly small population dispersed over a large area. So I guess that you're experience of Democracy is a little different from mine.

I've experienced life under an authoritarian dictatorship, and under various democratic governments. At the end of the day there's very little difference. If you see eye to eye with the government\society them you're OK. If not, then your not.

Democracy swallows you up and makes you a tiny cog in a big machine. You're subject to the wider will more than your own.

The Federation is just another empire at the end of the day. Eddington had it right.

Haha, well, if we were allowed anything like that at summer camp, then they all would have become total bronies. :) But no, sigh, the camp directors expected us to abstain from electronics and enjoy the outdoors, pfft. :P

And thanks! I made my own template for it. I couldn't find any free ones that made sense, and I didn't feel like buying one. XD But oh my goodness, it took so much time to make! I went through five 4-inch tall mockups before I got it right. :)
