Nerdsplaining and Pony Fatigue

So my pony fanart has generated me more views and comments on DeviantArt than the rest of my collection put together, and the Pony vs. Dalek series is no exception to this. No surprise, really... big properties have big fandoms, but whenever views and comments reach a certain tipping point, the silly stuff starts showing up.

Case in point: I'm starting to get comments about why the ponies couldn't possibly be beating the daleks, occasionally with the additional bonus of "If you'd seen [insert episode] you'd know that."

Tee hee!

Tell you what: when you can tell me (without looking it up) in which episode the Rutans actually make an appearance and why they're significant, then I might be interested in your Doctor Who geekery. ;) But even then, my reaction will be the same: "Dude. It's ponies. Your argument is invalid. Any argument is invalid." You might as well try to tell me that klingons could successfully conquer Bugs Bunny. (Or, for that matter, that the Hulk could totally beat up Superman.)

Anyway, as much as I'm enjoying all the attention from the pony art, I'm quickly starting to itch for something else to draw. I loves me some ponehs, but I have always been the type to crave variety. Artists (or fans for that matter) who glomp on to one topic and just do that over and over baffle me, no matter what buttons are being pushed. In the words of Auntie Mame, "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving!"

So once I finish the initial Pony vs. Dalek series (Rarity is the last of the mane six, I'll probably finish her on Monday night) I'm going to make a point of doing something else for a little while. Not sure what yet, but I've still got the various suggestions from my call for topics a while back, and Arclight Adventures could always use more beefing up. I've also got some ideas percolating for a potential Suburban Jungle followup that I might start noodling around with. We'll see how all that goes.

In the meantime, I should really look at getting some stuff done today! So off I go. :) Catcha later!
