>Faust never left after Season 2

What would've changed, Faustfags? No really, how would Lauren sticking around have affected the series in any way? Twilicorn, Equestria Girls? Those would've happened anyway, and she would've had to just sit there and watch. Hasbro controls what happens with the franchise. That's why Heartbutt is an alicorn instead of just a pegasus. That's why Faust left. It was not her show and her vision for a cartoon made to sell toy wouldn't align with a company that sells said toys.
>>
>>33625033
it would have ended a lot sooner
>>
>>33625033
I'll tell you one thing it would've had, for sure. Ready? It would still have SOUL. Not that I expect a shitbrain Jew-licking tastedead hasbrone t ever understand what this mean, of course.
>>
She's going to be haunted by this show for the rest of her life.

Look at the DC superhero show; it's basically FiM all over again. She's going to be continously chasing that high, the fact that she had enormous success and a pop culture phenomenon on her hands but it went out of her grasp. Normies pretty much know her for MLP alone. When she dies, I bet money that at least one obituary will say "Lauren Faust, animator, creator of My Little Pony- dead at XX".

Basically, she's like Bela Lugosi at this point; she's been typecast as "the my little pony lady" and she hates every second of it.

Also the DC show was boring and they ruined Zatanna's design
>>
>>33625059
I wonder why Zatanna has so many waifufags. It's probably her voice and bitchy persona, but she looks atrocious, her face is ugly. Then again, I guess toonfags can jerk off to literally any design

I'm pretty sure it would have been similar to later seasons. But with two main factors:
>actual lore and character consistency
>no toy plugs
>>
>>33625033
>What would've changed, Faustfags?
I don't really understand why you're addressing Faustfags, when the thread is obviously meant for that one moron who keeps on spamming how much he hates Faust because she abandoned us, and for that other idiot who keeps saying that if she can do DC Super Hero Girls, she should put her name on Equestria Girls too. I'm not really sure if either of them qualify as Faustfags considering that they actually hate Faust.
Anyway, I agree with you
>Twilicorn, Equestria Girls? Those would've happened anyway, and she would've had to just sit there and watch
This is true. Other than placebo, I don't really understand why the fuck anyone would want to see Faust staying and approving of the fucking cancer that Hasbro wants to turn the show into.

There are two kinds of people, people like Faust (and later on, Larson), who stick to what they believe, and people like McCarthy and Haber, who are eager to put their names on corporate shit if it'll mean getting a promotion. The latter are happier and get way more money, but if the former didn't exist, this world would suck more than it already does. I for one applaud that people like Faust exist. If more people were brave enough to stop supporting shit, maybe there would be less shit.

What does "SOUL" mean exactly? Words like "soul", "heart", "charm", etc. are so vague and meaningless that they could be applied to anything. When exactly did Season 1 have "soul" compared to anything from the post-Faust era?

>>33625141
Most of that shit would still have happened. Again, Faust designed Cadance as a pegasus but the corporate shills at Hasbro wanted to sell a pink princess doll and bronies were seeing through their Pinklestia ruse, so either we'd still be getting Pinklestia or another alicorn forced into the show's lore. And Lauren was still around when this happened. Even before the series began, Celestia was meant to be a Queen, but remember that this was still pre-Frozen so QUEENS WERE EVIL AND NICE PRINCESSES WILL SELL MORE!

There were always toy plugs, Faust just made sure they were gracefully integrated.

If she stuck around she would have continued to unify and enforce a standard of consistency upon every member of the team. This was her main effect when she was part of the team, as said in some interview, I think it was Larson or that one writer who talked about his experiences with the old team. If nothing else, she had a vision for the show, and it was comprehensive enough to drive her to ensure interconnectedness between different parts of the team.
>>
>>33625284
>Oh no, It's Danny Derpibooru!

>>33625386
Larson was the one who said the show's consistency went to the crapper once Faust and Rob Renzetti left and the new people in charge decided to start runing things their way.

>>33625153

Newfag. That was a later thing, from the Berrow book. Faust originally wanted Cadence to be a unicorn

Best post. Capped for posterity

Impossible. Faust left cause she was being autistic about how Hasbro wanted her to work their play sets in to the show and she wanted to maintain """ artistic integrity """

>Gets commissioned to write a glorified toy commercial
>Gets butt hurt when the company that hired you wants you to advertise their toys

So basically, never would have happened

>>33625433
interview? video? :o

She left because she couldn't have the effects she wanted to have, meaning that her staying would have changed nothing or at least wouldn't have provided her vision coherently. It probably would have turned into even more of a "to many cooks" situation.

If you really think MLP would've stayed the same quality and consistency as season 1 if Faust had stayed on longer, you have no idea how any of this works.

Hasbro is a major global corporation wit the only end game being to make as much money as possible, and they will manipulate and distort their products to meet that goal. Things like continuity or quality are second to profit. It's been there since the first season of MLP.

No matter how long Lauren Faust would have stayed on the show, no matter what kind of stories she wanted to tell, no matter what character endgames she had planned out, Hasbro would always get their way in the end. Because MLP was never hers, it was Hasbro's product that she got to play with for a little while.

The people currently working on the show are absolutely no different in this regard. They still want to tell amazing stories with beloved characters but are stymied by the regulations set by Hasbro. They HAD to do Princess Twilight, the new castle, the School, all of that, because if they didn't, Hasbro would've fired them and hired someone else that would've, because they have shit to sell and they want their 22-minute toy commercial to advertise it.

You're not mad at the writers for making the show bad. You're mad at capitalism.

The people currently in charge of the show only ant to tell stories about their own characters and couldn't care less about how the series used to be when Faust and McCarthy were around. Any person with a lucid mind can see this, as the original characters (principal, secondary and one shots) were shoved aside to make way for new OCs, new secondary characters and of course, to make way for the new showrunner's pet, aka Starlight Glimmer.

Say whatever you want, but I highly doubt Faust would have approved the idea of such a shit character being introduced out from nowhere to do nothing but be cooler than the show protagonist itself.

I've actually been working for 8 years and I'm not afraid to talk unfavorably about my employer. But sure, go ahead and make assumptions so you can justify your belief that the show directed changed not because of the people working on it, but because of the corporation that actually owns and controls it. Just go ahead and live your silly fantasy world where everything would be just fine if they rid of the one person that said the feminist no-no words on Twitter. Maybe then the show about talking horses would be the Watchmen-style epic you fantasized about it being.

I see your arguments have boiled down to calling me unfounded slurs. If you're done having the brain capacity of a raw chicken nugget, maybe you can learn to critically analyze the toy franchise you keep bitching about so you can fully contextualize your feelings about it besides "THEY ARE NEW CHARACTERS REEEE".

I'm pretty sure Neal Dusedau fit into the category of "I know I'm making shit and don't get this dumb pony shit," he was pretty butthurt when people disliked his episodes that seemed to have this weird meta around them that he didn't like doing it. I guess it's because it was basically something his agent roped him into doing because he thought it would help his career.
But other than Dusedau, I think the show staff genuinely does believe everything they make is their best possible work, that they're very proud of it, and that it fits with the original spirit of the show. Keyword here is "believe," remember that the truly incompetent are so incompetent that they fail to understand what being incompetent means and think everything they do is amazing.

>Hasbro is a major global corporation wit the only end game being to make as much money as possible, and they will manipulate and distort their products to meet that goal.
What fucking money? the idiots don't care about money or good products, they're a bunch of morons and degenerates. If they wanted money then they wouldn't try to manipulate and distort in the first place because they'd give a fuck that they're incompetent and they're losing money and quality products because of their massive incompetence. But it seems like Hasbro actually thrives off being incompetent retards that order around much more talented people around and love playing "big bad corporate". They're nothing but a bunch of immature joke-cracking idiots who love abusing the little power they have because they know they're incompetent retards, so might as well go full butthurt and project their hatred and lack of intelligence and talent on other people. Hasbro actually loves wasting money on their butthurt. You should see how they reacted when the studios they hired made their Transformers games too good, they felt threatened and depressed, like a bunch of fat tumblrinas.
Some humans just never grow beyond their edgy 5 year old self and need to waste billions of dollars on their butthurt ass to feel better about themselves.

What, what global corporation? 8 billion is disgustingly bad for a company like them. And the latest 2.4 bil spent on Boulder Media was a retarded deal. jesus christ 2.4 billion on just 1 studio, what a bunch of fucking idiots. Too expensive for anyone, but especially too expensive for Hasbro's pathetic 8 billion.

you're wrong. hasbro took all her advice in the studio. almost every idea was hers and the ones left over after she left were probably season 3. This is just like my job: everyone says corporate says this and that and corporate doesn't even know what they're talking about and when you call the main office your told a completely different story and it turns out it's an actual complex business and they really do need to respect their employees, and the stockholders are you and me because we invest in things, and the consumers demand things and it's better coming from a passionate individual then up top because they don't care, and then suddenly...things change

Wow, spic anon, you finally decided to use punctuation. Care to start capitalizing the first letter of a new sentence and every "I" pronoun?

Also you're functionally wrong. They took her ideas, but warped every single portion of it, the good and the bad. Not really your idea anymore if it's executed differently, now, is it?
The way their company works isn't complex, at most it's confusing and clique-y as fuck. They let you know subconsciously who's in charge by grabbing all the control from you. They'll make you believe it's normal for a corporate team to send a leader of their own(Vogel) and starting acting as a creative consultant because by their logic "they paid for it, you're working for them, it's their show, you have no control over their product."

Hasbro is disgustingly micromanaged by investors who think they're fanfic writers. It's exceptionally sad that these people care more about acting high and mighty with their power and ruining their own product, than actually making money. They actively sabotage their own product with their ego, jealousy, pettiness, thirst for power, that's just how their personality is. They cannot care for money, they care about satisfying their personalities which means being everything I said above.

Not him but I'm from a country with decades of socialism. Let me tell you how socialism works.

>Socialist party wants to be elected
>It promises to hire people into the state in exchange for votes, essentially buying votes with state money
>The socialist party comes to power
>It hires it's voters
>The socialist party then takes loans from the germans in exchange for very favorable trade agreements and gives people welfare to better it's image
>However money is not free. It comes from somewhere and you have to give it back plus interest
>The socialist party raises taxes and cuts pensions and funding towards schools and hospitals
>Quality of life drops
>The socialist party blames the IMF and the markets
>People become desperate and vote for anyone who gives them stuff
>The socialist party takes more loans from the germans. This time with more strings attached, such as having to spend part of the money to buy defective tanks and subs from Germany
>The people have to pay for those loans too
>In the end Merkel is the empress of EU and has complete control over the policies of other countries because if they don't comply, she can collapse their economies and literally starve the people because most things on the supermarket shelves come through Germany

"B-but muh free healthcare and education". Schools and hospitals are underequiped and staffed by useless people who were hired based on what they claimed to have voted, and who cannot be fired. You are forced to pay for these crappy services through taxes even if you never use them. If you don't then the state will send people with guns to take you away (the cops).

Actual lore? Consistency? I like how this brain dead faustfag already forgot 'Ponyville has tradition hundreds of years old' and 'my grandma founded it' shit writing WITHIN A SINGLE SEASON, shitting on lore with crap characters like shitscord or random dragon invasion with zero regard for internal chronology, or forgetting about 'big deal' Luna for 30 episodes only to return her with more shit writing implying no one told her for over a year 'we don't scream at plebs anymore' for the sake of garbage, unfunny "joke".

I agree hardcore with this anon up until the capitalism bit, greed existed before capitalism homie.

If Faust stayed on board, the shitty shit we have now still would have come to fruition, perhaps slightly better done, but there nonetheless. Hasbro calls all the shots in the end and if they say "include X, Y, and Z in the new season" the staff have to oblige. Pony is, and likely will continue to be, primarily a massive commercial to sell toys. Faust was able to hold the reins of its newest rendition for a while but she never owned the carriage.
