They seem mutually beneficial and detrimental to each other all at once. How very interesting... I shall say that Hasbro is First and the Brony Hive-mind is Second. Without the hive-mind, Hasbro cannot learn from its mistakes despite its claims and without Hasbro, the hive-mind lacks purpose. Yin and Yang... One can exist without the other but both have everything to lose. What point are you trying to illustrate with this? The mutual futility of either's endeavors to please the other? That it is a struggle without end because of the stubborn pride of both?
