You know, I have a depiction of Humans in the world of FIM. However, they are massive, savage, vile, nightmarish Apes that have long sharp teeth and claws. They are extinct since the end of the last Ice Age andthey ate anything, from trees to Dragons.
A question: I believe I saw this note from Mrs. Faust on your Tumblr account (if that's the one), and it seemed to me that it wasn't saying that humans would NEVER be in the show. The idea just wasn't taken upon in the development stage, i.e. they didn't ask for it.
Now I could have misread it, or I'm talking about another note which I haven't seen. So, based on what you've heard, is the human predicament pretty much set is stone, or is it an area that the producers are not pursuing at this moment but could (if ever) at an unspecified point in the future?
My apologies if I'm asking too much. I won't ask you to share anything intimately private or anything; I'm just looking for general information.
While Mrs. Faust was a lead director of the show, she told me in a note on dA that there would not be humans in the show. Now that she's no longer part of the team, they could still go against her initial wishes and incorporate them, but it's extremely unlikely.
You know? One of my friends has been thinking up this idea for a story called "A Human in Equestria". He hadn't thought of who the human would be. So I told him that I then recently was watching the Generation 1 cartoons of "My Little Pony" and came across the character of Megan. Eventually, I asked him to search "MLP Megan" on here to see what she looked like, and he came across this very picture. Needless to say, he actually liked my idea of re-using Megan for his story idea.
So is it all right if my friend and I draw Megan like this? Because I, for one, would be interested, seeing as how this is somewhat how I imagined she'd look like in MLP: FiM. I even have a few ideas in mind for what to draw her doing.
I kinda wish Megan would show up in the newer mlp, but with this design, from Midnight castle. In that version, she was more like a tomboy farmgirl and that was why I liked her when I was little, and when it came to the tv series, I was never too wild with the puffy outfit she had nor the hairstyle.
Lauren Faust confirmed to me in a note that Megan won't be showing up in the show, nor any other humans for that matter. I agree on the costume though, I was never a huge fan of the old MLP (I only watched a bit of it this year when I got into the new series) but when I was looking up outfits for Megan I definitely preferred this version. That other one is extremely tacky and way too 80's for me. lol
I actually can understand the whole human bit, I was kind of ok with Megan and Kevin from the Gummie bear adventures, maybe because they weren't in every episode like Chris Thorndyke in the Sonic X anime. That kind of did royally ruin the show for me lol
I think what the creators who put human kids in their shows don't realize is that kids can associate with the animal characters JUST FINE. Having a character being the only human in the world is actually really jarring and takes them out of the narrative.
That's why when people make pony OCs and stuff, they make themselves a pony... not a human. lol
