?  O.o
Sorry, I'm just not understanding the whole "Brony" phenomenon.

Okay, in short, the people that write the show actually put some depth into the characters, the visual style is excellent at conveying nuances of emotion and expression that add to the humor of the situations, and the script-writing varies from silly to surprisingly intellectual for a show like this. They also love to throw in little easter-eggs like background ponies modeled after the various incarnations of Dr. Who.

All you have to do is get past the occasional bits of Anvilicious "Moral Education" that all kids shows are required to have, and remind yourself that you're not any less of a man for laughing like hell at a character named Pinkie Pie.

If you've seen the show and don't like it, cool, but watch two episodes before you judge.
Oh, I get why there's a Brony "movement/culture/whatever". It's just not for me. ;)

Its true. FastJack is more of a Strawberry Shortcake fan.   ::)

Really, it's just a label for grown men who find entertainment value in a show that's not aimed at our demographic.

My love of MLP, for example, is more on level with how I feel about Firefly or SG-1 than the kind of obsession you get with Trekies and Twilight Moms.

Well, Anthroform Drones would work surprisingly well  . .
Also, free Spirits, of course, because what CAN'T Magic do?

Travel through space? Bring someone back from the dead? Make Barry Mannalow cool? Create a 5-sided sphere?

Travel through space? O.o
Magic can travel through space. o.O
Bring someone back from the dead?
That one is up for discussion in the light of cybermancy and Blood-Magic and Ancestor Spirits.
Making Barry Mannalow(It's Mannylow i think) cool is entirely subjective.
Creating a 5-sided-sphere depends on how many dimensions you can percieve.

Funny thing, my browncoat is part of my inheritance from my stepfather.  I have a nice black leather cowboy hat that goes with it.  Really need to get a holster someday.

Brony-vision
Manipulation Spell (Mental)
Type: M. Range: LOS. Duration: S. Drain: (F/2)+1
This insidious spell was designed by a mad trickster. Victims who fall under its sway perceive all metahumans as equine creatures of some sort, ranging in color from pastels to bright technicolor shades.

Should have a
"If sustained longer than one hour, 5% of the spell's victims will be very happy and completely pacified. The other 95% need to make a composure test (threshold = force/2) of want to kill themselves in the most painful way that's immediately possible."
