The Brave and the Bold: BABSCon & Lauren Faust

Hold on to your hooves, because the one and only Lauren Faust is coming to BABSCon 2016!


Lauren needs no introduction, but just in case you do want to be dazzled by her résumé, she was the woman who developed My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for TV. An accomplished, Emmy Award-winning animator, writer, director, and producer, Lauren has also worked on popular television shows like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, The Powerpuff Girls, and Wander Over Yonder, and helped animate films including The Iron Giant and Cats Don’t Dance.


In 2014, she joined Sony Pictures Animation to develop and direct the animated feature film, Medusa, and she’s currently the lead character designer and scenarist for the upcoming indie video game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds.


Lauren has long been recognized as an advocate of empowering young girls by providing them with engaging and worthwhile media content. The success of her creative ventures is proof that inspired storytelling and multi-dimensional characters can transform “girls’ entertainment” into a powerful cultural medium for delving into the full spectrum of human experience.

  1. Oh good Lauren can be a dick to the other show staff and us fans again like she was at the last convention she went to. Why is she placed on such a pedistal by some in this fandom again?

    2. Did Faust make fun of your shit OC again anon?

    3. I think you're confusing Lauren with Final Draft bruh.

  2. I love how no-one explains why the first anon is wrong and just attacks them. Proof what they said was right on the money.

    1. People ignoring common sense doesn't mean whoever they argue against is right. (Really only one Anon attacked him to be honest, one was in disbelief and the other one asked what the original anon menats).

      If this logic was correct, then the Infinite Improbability Engine would already be a thing, due to the fact that 4chan exists.

  3. >Didn't discuss his claim
    What could have they discussed? We all have seen the footage and nothing of what he said happened.

  4. ^:) I came across an interesting article titled Clueless Guys Can't Read Mares. That headline is practically shouting for men to respond, so here is my response. Mares: Get a clue! You are probably finding it just as hard to read men correctly! Oh, and guys, you get a clue too! Here are four clues to help mares and men get a clue, whether in the stables or in their relationships. They may not be any better at reading each other, but they'll certainly be more aware that there's something worth reading, and have a shot at getting to it sooner.

    1. And apparently okay with being fetish fuel.

      Notice the promo image, herr fausticorn is the only one naked except for 'sockies'.

    2. Well unlike almost anyone else on the show she did go on 4chan occasionally, so it's no surprise.

  8. I wonder how EQLA feels about this. They were advertising Faust being at their con like it was the only con she was going to attend, and now she's going to all of them...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. EQLA had their heads stuck up the asses of their guests that they forgot to have a properly ran con.

      Delete
    2. Blame Cayci(2015's con chair) for that. She knew practically nothing about running a con and was driving the staff mad.

      Delete
    3. sauce on that 02:43

      Delete
    4. Yeah, I'm sure being a mlp collector with no con experience and hating bronies were great qualifications.

      Delete
    5. ^
      Seriously, I have to wonder what Karen(the original con chair) was thinking when she put Cayci in charge.

      Delete
    6. spoiler alert they're both retards

      Delete
  9. 02:52, I had friends who were staff for EQLA this year who told me that Cayci was doing a shitty job at running things and that nobody liked her.

    1. Oh shit, meant to put this as a reply in the thread above >_<

      Delete
    2. Cayci is a cunt but at least she isn't a raging bitch quite as often as the old con chair Karen.

      Delete
    3. Karen has little patience for incompetence or sperginess. 21:36, is it possible your cup overfloweth with either of those?

      'Cause if you just do your job she's remarkably easy to get along with.

      Delete
    4. if you've seen her twitter then you know your claim about her hating sperginess must be self-hatred .all she does is get into fights with bronies on twitter much like that other tranny

      Delete
    5. 21:12 again. Also, I guess I should mention that one of my friends who was a staff member said that the EQLA staff were actually planning on doing a walk-out because they hated Cayci THAT much and how she was running things.

      Delete
    6. Both Karen and and Cayci are awful people with little to no con running experience going on and terrible management skills, but at least Karen was not dumb enough to alienate the very customer base a pony con is trying to attract and basically sabotage the con out of spite and an old vendetta.

      Though I'm pretty sure Karen is a bit touched, as she seems to struggle with certain basic human interactions and the concept of empathy.

      I would not compare either of them to Purple Tinker, you're talking about someone who literally believes that doing favorso for people creates a social contract where they now owe you one, which means every supposed good deed she's appeared to do was really was to earn others favorite and put them in hereturn pocket. This isn't a conspiracy, she's basically admitted to this and explained why she is often so pissed off, because she keeps trying to turn her chips and to only have others not paying up what she feels is owed.

      I'd make a Jew joke, but it may just be her warped little mind that thinks this way.

      Delete
    7. I wonder if Karen was in the same "severely emotionally disturbed" school that Tinker admits attending

      Delete
    8. Shit like collecting friendship coins to redeem later then getting pissed when people refuse the freakish demand sounds like shit you'd expect from a friendzoned teenage boy... oh.

      Delete
    9. Silly anon, everyone has a little teenage boy inside of them! Purple Tinker just has about 5 inches more than the average person!

      Delete
  10. Well, good luck to all those people who can afford to go.

  11. Let the Faustfagging BEGIN! Seriously, it's not inaccurate to call it a cult at this point

    1. Other than being hired by Hasbro to reboot MLP and being one of several people to set the show's original foundation, including writing the pilot, Faust has contributed little to FiM compared to others. She is an okay artist, but seems to do everything in the style of Power Puff Girls and is frankly a terrible writer. Most of the credit people seem to give her are actually her husband's achievements, not her own and would be even less known without his influence.
