Bronies, brothers and sisters of our amazing fandom, our world is at a crossroads. As you may have seen things are changing in our world. Talk of Alicorns, Cease and Desist orders, fear of losing the show we hold dear has enveloped our fandom and cause unrest amongst its people. A community of friendly, caring people has been riddled with cynicism, doom saying, and infighting because we’ve turned away from what all hold dear to face the giant in our path. Yes, friends, things are changing whether we like it or not. I’m not here to put your fears to rest or fill your hearts with panic and hopelessness. I’m simply asking you to remember. Who are we? Are we simply a group of adults with too much time on our hands who gathered around a children’s cartoon? Is that really all we are? An unexpected oddity? Or are we more than a bunch of grown men and women in funny cloths and rainbow wigs? Who are we, friends? I believe that we are a group of powerful individuals with our own stories and ideas. Even though we’re very different, we’ve found a common ground, something that we can all enjoy that’s showed us what is important in our lives. Kindness, strength, generosity, loyalty, friendship; these are more than words to us; they’re principles.

When I first looked upon the fandom I saw a group of people marching to the beat of their own drum and celebrating something they all cared about, even if it was just a children’s cartoon. But when I looked deeper I discovered it was so much more than that. The more I looked; I began to see how much people cared - even loved - its characters. This touched my heart in an amazing way. I thought that if these people could love a fictional pony so much, than how much can they have for each other? Now that I’ve become a part of the fandom I’ve found that love for myself and given of it freely. But since I’ve become accustomed to the community I’ve forgotten things. I’ve forgotten exactly why I started on this journey. I’ve taken for granted our love for each other and now that is coming under question.

In light of all of this coming change is now the time for us to divide ourselves? Is now the time for us to argue amongst ourselves and pick sides when things are looking their darkest? I do not believe so. A wise man once said, “United we stand, divided we fall.” Now is the time, friends. ; The time for us to stand together in the face of change, antagonism, and fear. Now is the time we stand by each other in our strengths and weaknesses and become again the fandom that built our great community. I call on you to stop and remember why you started all this. Consider who you are and how far you’ve come. Are we just a community of losers with too much time on our hands, or have we found something to show us what is important, something to believe in that has made us into better people.

If you believe, as I do, that we can be more than a group of strangers, than please don’t take these words lightly, remember what brought you all here, your beliefs and experiences. Hold on to it and don’t let go, because they can take away our games or even our show, but they can’t take away who we are. When we stand together Equestria will always exist in our hearts. Equestria will prevail. We will prevail.

Just life man. School, job, helping the family with a cross country move, even though I dont live there anymore, trying to get an internship. Major research project coming up. Lots of balls in the air and I won't have time to dedicate to you guys like I have had. I'll still be around, lurking. Maybe even a post or two. But not like I have been.

You guys are great, I'm glad I was able to quell some of the strife. I'd like to be everywhere at once, helping be the best that I can be here, because you guys mean so much to me. But I gotta do me right now. Which makes it that much tougher that there isn't some big overarching thing to deal with and come back victorious. Just all of life's little things gettin stacked on at once. But yeah, I'll still be here or there, just at a greatly reduced presence. Any chance I get though, I'll pop in and say hello.
>> No. 2517858
A hug might be nice. I just feel that these changes didn't need to be mad, and we made for silly reasons, and that the show suffers as a result. And if the show is not something I like anymore, I can't call myself a fan.

Don't worry about it. I'll definitely make sure to say hello from time to time! And I always know the way back...so it won't be hard.

Aw yeah! That's what I'm talking about!


What made you choose that name, if you don't mind me asking?


Internships? Well hell, if you ever want help with your resume or with interviewing, let me know. I coordinate a small internship program for my company and have some tips that may help. There are some simple things that you can do that will really make you stand out.

(HINT: Contact the interviewer afterwards thanking them for the opportunity to meet and talk with them! This piece of advice is in every single article about interviewing, but no one does it. It makes a huge difference.)


Haha, I know how you feel there. Just give the show a chance and see what they do with the next season. You never know what creative ideas this development may spur in the writers. I don't like it, but I'm willing to withhold judgement until we can see where they do with it.


Glad that they helped! Really, it does get better. Also, my name is actually a reference to the main character of M*A*S*H, the only television show that is superior to ponies. Hawkeye is the best.

Watch M*A*S*H. Now.

I believe that you might have! It's been a looooong time since anypony recognized that, though. It would have been ages ago.


Haha, no worries. It's not exactly in the context that you would normally associate with a show like that!

You're good folk, by the way. I'm glad that you and Gummy are part of this site now!


Ah, well good luck with it! You'll kick flank, I know it. Based Anon, you will be President of the United States of America someday. Just you wait.

I'm pulling the cuddliest pictures that I HAVE for this thread.
>> No. 2517885
I jsut wish they had not done what they did. They gave us about 10 minutes with princess Twilight after they killed the real one. Ten minutes I HATED. But everypony is saying "We need more time with this new character to see if she's really all that bad." and I said "Ok, when's the next episode?" "One year from now." Goddamnit! I have to wait a YEAR to see if something I hated is something I'm going to continue to hate.

You know, you're not the first person that has told me that. Y'all better watch out, or all this talk of politics will go straight to my ego, and I might actually do it someday. ;)

Glad I could help. I just want to see us prosper. >spok.jpg Glad you liked it. Just be careful or you'll feed my ego. xD

Sadly, it's getting late and I'm going to have to hit the hay. Glad I could share some feels with you all. It's be a wonderful night and I'm glad I could spend it with all of you and so I bid farewell. Sleep well pchan.
