Yay! Lyra is definitely sat her way into my heart these past few weeks. Her crazy antics for pants, hands, and any human thing is funny. But what makes me really like her is the random things she does in the show. When she's sitting like a people on a bench, when she's jumping up and down in Cloudsdale, when she gets overly dramatic when a parasprite eats her food, and when she's just bursting with happiness in the season two poster (not really in the show but still canon).
It was weird since, personally, I'm kind of sporadic and random but for a while Pinkie Pie kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Which I thought was odd since she's also sporadic and random so you'd think I would relate with her, but the first couple of months of watching the show she would just annoy me. I think the reason is because she's super extroverted and seems like she wants attention all the time, where I'm more introverted. So I guess she was just hitting me in the face with her random.
However Lyra's randomness is more subtle, she doesn't do it for attention, she's just her own person (I know you can argue for the same for pinkie pie but these are my opinions). When ever I'm out in public I'll do weird little things that I think it would be weird if just one guy saw me and was like "Wha...?" Such as making overly expressive faces and doing weird little things, and Lyra essentially does the same thing. So we're, like, connecting, dude.
And once again this proves that bronies over analyze cartoons way to much.
