On my pony comics, I'll often get people who have strong opinions about what characters are somewhat rigid and take offence to how those comics play out. Honestly, I just find their rage amusing. I still have the e-mails from one Daniel Venetsky, who called me an "alicorn fascist" (all-caps removed for your convenience) because I liked a fight scene.

Whenever I do those comics, it's never really because I have a strong opinion of the characters, I just have an idea that I think would be funny and then use the characters that would make sense for it. Like I did this whole set about one character being stupid as hell because it had huge potential for jokes, and people assumed that I hated the character. If I hated the character, I wouldn't have made that many comics about him.

I forget most of the other specific examples, but it's happened plenty of times.

Forgot some of this might not make 100% sense to people outside of the fandom bubble. XP

Headcanon (single "n" in the middle) - A person's preferred interpretation of a piece of media that may or may not be reflected by the actual canon of that media. For instance, how you imagine a young character growing up would be your headcanon, or whether or not a character is LGBT or not, and things like that. It's basically fanfiction that isn't written down and assumed to be canon until the show/book/film/comic states otherwise.

Alicorn - A winged unicorn, usually more magical than a normal unicorn, and taller too.
