The reason they've seeped into pop-culture as much as they have is because the show is built on very carefully constructed archetypes that, while of course familiar, are executed from a different perspective. This creates an aspect of universability; that is to say, you can imagine the world in thousands of different ways, while still staying completely true to fundamental aspects of the show and its characters. Additionally, the details of the world are sparse but extremely creative when given. This inspires the /desire/ to explore the potential in its universability. The "remix generation" latched onto this firmly, and thus why you see things like this image that combine two different, pre-existing worlds. It's an extremely fundamental human interest to see familiar things from new angles, and My Little Pony has managed to reinvent itself as a brilliant conduit for that interest. That's just why it's got so much of a fan-following. It's also a pretty good show beyond its cleverly constructed characters, with very nice animation and good humor.
What? ^^' Sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound like a tirade or anything. Maybe a lecture. It's just show, after all. I can totally understand not liking crossovers, especially with something as awesome as FMA.
Are you doing them from the regular season? Or Brotherhood? Because if you are doing them from Brotherhood I highly recommend getting Lee! XD He'd make one hell of a pony!
And seeing as how amazing you made Berry...I'm sure you could make them all! <---Look at that shrimp go! *Gets chased by Ed...* WHO YOU CALLING TINY ANT NOT ABLE TO SEE PAST A ROCK <insert more Edward Elric rage here>
I've been doing them from the regular season since that's what I've watched so far. I'm gonna watch Brotherhood after finals are over. I might do them all! They've been the funnest and possibly best things I've drawn so far. >=I except Ed. Ed ponies are terrifying and cruel and unfun and nightmare-ish and make me cry.
