Guys, I've been in some weird places recently, I went from happy and joyous at Bronycon to sad, depressed, sick, and miserable over the course of two weeks.
But this has led me to realize something. Realize the fact, that I found something. Something that no other fandom can claim, can have... can even understand. I can list to you the fandoms I have been in over the years. Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic the Gathering, Warhammer 40k, Halo, Star Wars, Star Trek, Rainbow Six, Final Fantasy... the list goes on. But as I delved both inside myself and into my life, a sort of spark hit me.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has something that nothing else does. It has a soul. There is a force that drives this show, and it is not from the writers or the development teams... its from the fans. But, honestly, can we call ourselves fans? Is that all Bronies are? No... we're more than fans, we're friends...
We're family. Being a Brony isn't a creepy outlet for the bad rap the world has given us. True Bronies know, it is a style of being and life that we adopt, make our own, and share with others. I have looked over a lot of the messages people have sent me over the past two weeks, and my heart could simply burst. No one fandom has this level of love, this height of compassion and friendship and belonging. I'm a Brony, and I always will be. People say "it's just a fad," but I sincerely think we will last the decades, and even when the show is taken off the air (what a horrible, horrible day that will be) then Bronies will remain.
Why? Because we aren't just about ponies, we aren't just about the show. We're about each other. It's a place to be where you can be away from judgment, and be all into a blessed friendship that will last beyond time and hardship.
My friends, I love you all... and I'm Proud to Be a Brony!
