My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the fourth generation of the My Little Pony animation franchise. It is the 2010s incarnation and the longest-running animated series in its history. It ran for nine seasons, from October 2010-October 2019. While intended for a young female audience, it wound up gaining a massive adult audience, especially among men. With that in mind, plus his previous track record for loving children's shows, it's not surprising that Chris was later turned onto the show, and that he'd have even more confidence with being publicly interested in it.
Characters mentioned by Chris
Chris used a picture of Applejack from Friendship is Magic as his Tomboys and Tomgirls of Virginia forum avatar, although his screen name was modeled after the name of another major character in the series – Rainbow Dash.
Discord is a male draconequus and former antagonist.
In November 2017, as a result of the main Idea Guy's schemes involving Hyperdimension Neptunia lore, Chris felt he needed bodyguards in the real world to protect him from manipulation by fictional Neptunia character Kurome, choosing imaginary friends Magi-Chan, Silvana and Discord.
He went to his Pokemon club at The End Games escorted by Magi-Chan and Discord, and said he let Discord watch some Dungeons and Dragons games. Chris also asked one of his Pokémon League friends if she could see the imaginary friend, and claimed to have worn Discord as a draconequus vest.
A Friendship is Magic Rainbow Dash toy can be sighted in the background of "Correction of EX relationship status" and a G3 My Little Pony sticker can be seen on Chris's 3DS in the Wristwatch-SwissWatch for Jeremy "Thorg" video.
On 24 April 2012, Chris wrote a note on his Facebook, calling for the rescue of the MLP:FiM character "Derpy Hooves" (later officially credited as "Ditzy Doo" and then "Muffins"), a character who is characterized by her lazy eyes and comical method of thinking, whose first speaking appearance in the episode "The Last Roundup" was re-edited because one person (who would later be heavily criticized by the MLP:FiM fanbase) thought Derpy's voice and personality in said appearance was offensive to the disabled. Naturally, Chris saw it as a vehicle to gain more pity towards him by sympathizing with a character that appeared to have some sort of disorder.
Chris also has a Friendship is Magic playlist on his ChristianWChandler YouTube account, which included what was then all of its episodes. In the Facebook note he made on 31 March 2012, he complains about "gum gabbing gossip columnists working for a corrupt editor", which is the plot for the episode "Ponyville Confidential" (which aired not too long before the note was made), the giveaway being that the nom de plume used in the episode was "Gabby Gums".
On 26 June 2012, Chris whined about dark pony-related media on his Facebook via Twitter. He mentioned watching an animated adaption of the infamous fanfiction Cupcakes and SHED.MOV (an episode of HotDiggedyDemon's PONY.MOV series). He took particular offense at Rainbow Dash, a tomboyish character, being gorily killed in both videos and, in a characteristic fit of fatuous egotism, suggested that it was done because people hate tomboys and tomgirls. He went on to rant about the "Dark Parodies" being the reason behind his writer's block, before descending into the usual tirade of hatred against people in general.
In a twist of irony, it was later discovered that Chris has not one, but two playlists from HotDiggedyDemon, the creator of SHED.MOV that he hated so much. Also, he eventually would share a word of wisdom HotDiggedyDemon posted to his Facebook account that trolls noted would be useful for himself.
Equestria Girls spin-off
When the Equestria Girls trailer was released, Chris threw a fit on Facebook, citing that it would attract "pedofile [sic] perverts" into the fanbase. Never mind that the MLP:FiM fanbase has always had perverts (not to mention that so does every other fanbase in the world) and he himself has drawn porn of underage characters. He then goes on to say that the Friendship is Magic crew is "Out Of Their Minds", immediately after saying "With All Due Respect", even going so far as to name-drop Lauren Faust, who at that point had left the show more than a year prior. He then comments on his note, loudly demanding in ALL CAPS that somebody pulls the plug on it. Much to the surprise of nobody, Hasbro did not respond to Chris's suggestions. Chris later "liked" some videos related to the movie online and named it his #2 favorite.
On 19 January 2015, a photo was leaked depicting Chris dressed up in a Rainbow Dash costume. His unclean, frazzled appearance unsurprisingly doesn't mix at all with her colorful design.
On 29 August 2015, Chris was seen cosplaying, again, at OmegaCon; this time as "Vinyl Scratch, A.K.A. DJ Pon3!". This time, instead of slapping on a wig and horse ears and calling it a day, Chris put at least a little effort into his costume; the result, while striking, was still far from good.
