Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Now, as you all obviously know, I'm a brony. Nopony I've ever met IRL in my entire life knows this, but I'm going to change that.

As you also know, my friend tried to form an Anti-brony group and failed miserably. I don't know if he's still an anti-brony though.

Thing is, tomorrow I'm going to tell him that I'm a brony (while obviously making sure there are NO eavesdroppers. I don't even want the CAT hearing this. :razz:). The only downside, is I don't have enough supportive reasons as to why he should accept that and move on (let alone become a brony himself), so I'll need some help.

I have a strategy planned out right now.

Current Strategy:
1. Ask questions that are hardly relevant.
2. Give him updates on my "Studies of the bronies" (I'll explain this later)
3. Tell him certain "Findings" from my "Studies" (Relevant to step #2)
4. Drift off topic temporarily.
5. Begin to restore topic.
6. Reveal.
7. (If hostile/unbelieving) Give reasons.
8. (If neutral/no reaction) Return to conversation.
9. (If agreed(?)) Discuss.
10. (If step 7 or in some cases step 8 taken) Ask for consideration, and if 8 taken Give reasons.
11. (If 10 has negative reaction) (7 taken. End) (8 taken. Return to 8)
12. (If 10 has positive reaction) Return to 9.
13. (If 9 taken) Introduce to this community.
14. End of strategy

Reasons:
Reason 1 provided by Rehydration (ζ)
Reason 2 probided by Leslie-Ponified (υ)
Reason α (Self Provided) (δ)
These reasons combined together with what it takes to convince him of something will get me to a rating of µ.

Edit: Stupid emoticon...

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Reason 1: Ask him, "Is there anything wrong with being a fan of the show? After all, some young adults watch stuff that's almost 10 years under their age group! (That would be stuff like Disney, which is targeted at kids who are thirteen, but 20-year-olds watch it.)


"A regular Friday audience, 90 percent feminine and 100 percent well-bred, sat stoically yesterday through thirty minutes of the most cacophonous world premiere ever heard here - the first performance anywhere of a new Violin Concerto by Arnold Schoenberg. Yesterday's piece combines the best sound effects of a hen yard at feeding time, a brisk morning in Chinatown and practice hour at a busy music conservatory. The effect on the vast majority of hearers is that of a lecture on the fourth dimension delivered in Chinese." -An anonymous Philadelphia Record reviewer, on Schoenberg's Op. 36 Violin Concerto.

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Good reason. I'd have to rate it as ζ on a scale from Ω to α.
(Zeta on a scale from Omega to Alpha.)

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Here's something I might say:
"Is it wrong for someone to be different? We all have unique interests. Some are a little strange, and a lot of them don't fit in. I admit I really did hate MLP back in November (Remember I'm speaking for you, not myself), but after I decided to give it a shot it sort of grew on me. It's crazy, but I actually liked it. And I wasn't really sure why at first. If a few months ago I had been told that I would like this show, I would have called that person insane.
But is it wrong to be different? If God created us all the same way, would life be interesting? Same people, same personalities, same interests? No, it would be very dull. There would never be anything new. So what's wrong with being different? Why do people disrespect others for not doing what they do? Does it really have any purpose? Will people EVER accomplish something by making fun of others for having different interests?"
[wait for response]
"So, if you were to make fun of me for being a brony right now would that make you go far in life? Is there any reason to make fun of people who are different?"
[pause]
"Answer me this: is it worth it to insult people every time they do something unique? Is that a smart idea?"

And that's my speech. I don't think you can memorize the whole thing but make sure to remember the important bits! ;)

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Wow. Your speech idea, I'm rating at α! Really. That seems like it would work! Last night I figured this community would let me go out onto the battlefeild without a weapon!

Last Second Save. Nice.

I'd have to say we're up to δ by now on the reasons. I might even get him to join!

One last thing: If he does, there's a 1/3 chance his username will be "dragonlord5446", or something along those lines. He might just start out with a "secret" identity like I did though.

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Well, it worked!

As it turns out, he's a brony now too.

Being perfectly honest, he never was an anti-brony though. I just figured I'd get some advice for if the event ever happens.

I didn't even have to use that many reasons. All I did was explain what one was and he decided he was one.

He's going to join as "Krunicus". I haven't seen him use that username yet though, so whatever.

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

(He was over at my house when he posted and he must have thought I wanted him to make the post quick. (Either that or he thought this was a chat room :facehoof:))

I tried to explain what a brony was to him in the most confusing way possible so he wouldn't know what I was talking about until I finally just told him. That strategy DID work, but in a weird way! Turns out he had NO IDEA what a brony even was in the first place!

Well, I've never seen someone hate bronies while not even knowing what they were. :razz:

So I guess that removes all tension. :)

Ah, I understand now. I'm guessing back when you were still a hater, you told him about it and he agreed with you even though he wasn't exactly sure what you were talking about. So he took your word for it and thought bronies were terrible people.

You people have more interesting lives than me. :derpy:

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

Just try throwing my cousin into the equation. Once you get that done, you can't even TRY to explain it without becoming confused. (That actually explains my mental instability about %30. %40 is autism, and the rest is my lack of true social interaction with anypony other than Krunikus and my cousin who's gone by so many identities by now, you can't even keep track of who he is. I think he goes by "Venovia." Not sure though. I know he went by "siver" on scratch before quitting. We've formed a game-making team that we're calling Team Omicron. At least that's what I'm calling it anyway. I should really stop making my posts so long and irrelevant.

Re: Untitled [MISSION FAILED]

I run a game-making team of my own. I'm not sure if I should reveal the name because it could cause people to learn some of my personal information (Such as my last name, and the school I go to, which in turn would reveal the city I live in too). We have a website and there are pictures of my face there.

Now, whenever someone says that, I get tickled by something that tells me "SEARCH!" so I searched and searched a few minutes. Eventually, I found the website. I was unsure at first, but then I found out one of the group members favorite work so far was a remix of one of my old games :3

It took me 2 minutes to search... Yeah, I am a creepy stalker.


Here is the link if anyone wants to see: Gotcha xD

I would never do that. The link is fake. I would probably have the post removed and Sausage would have banned forever D:

Welp, now you know what I look like.

But I wouldn't have banned you for linking people to the site. I would have been a little upset, but I wouldn't go crazy. I'll put up the link myself later when I feel ready anyway.

Didn't catch that. Christianity doesn't really work for me because I just can't really believe that the most wise and powerful entity in existence created light BEFORE the sun. :razz:
