Welcome back, fillies and gentlecolts, to another RHYTHM RED’S RADTASTICAL REVIEWS!!! (...it’s about time!)
Today, we’re talking about Surf and/or Turf! Even though it’s been out for a little while. I’m lazy.
I believe this is the first leaked episode (correct me if I’m wrong), though I haven’t watched the leaked episodes myself. Why would I want to spoil the surprise?
With all of that out of the way, here we go!
First off, we get something pretty unique: the CMC’s are being called by the map! This is good, I’m all for the CMC’s solving a friendship problem instead of a cutie mark one for once. You can only have so many “CMC’s help ponies find their cutie marks” episodes before it gets a little repetitive, so this is a great idea, in my opinion! Plus they get to go to Mount Aris!
One train ride and a few funny comments later, and we get to Mount Aris, home of the hippogriffs! Oh, and I think we all know Twilight just wants a vacation. (“Research”. You silly pony. )
Next, we meet Terramar, a young hippogriff who can’t decide if he wants to live on Mount Aris or in Seaquestria. Both have their positives and negatives, and hippogriffs on both sides are trying to make him choose. This is a FANTASTIC episode idea. I’ll get to why that is in just a moment.
A short while later, Terramar and the CMC’s go to Harmonizing Heights. Sweetie Belle falls in love with the place, of course, and wants Terramar to stay on Mount Aris. Then, they go to Seaquestria, and Scootaloo tries to persuade Terramar to stay there instead. (I also liked watching her ‘fly’ underwater!) Apple Bloom doesn’t pick a side.
Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo get into an argument over where Terramar should stay, and he runs off, angry that the ponies who were supposed to help him only made things worse.
The CMC’s then surprise him with a big beach party- one that both those living on land and those living in the water can enjoy! Terramar’s parents apologize for pressuring him, and he decides to enjoy both worlds, rather than limit himself to one.
YOU GET THE BEEEEEST OF BOTH WOOOORLDS!!!
Back to why this episode idea is such a good one: It resembles divorce. Obviously Terramar’s parents aren’t divorced, but them choosing to live in different places (and having strong opinions about it) are like a disagreement, and Terramar going back and forth between houses is like a kid going to visit both of his parents. Just like in a real divorce, this takes a toll on Terramar. The fact that this is shown in the episode is pretty neat, in my opinion. It references divorce in a very subtle way, but it’s still there.
Okay, so a pretty good episode overall. But what about the downsides?
First off, the solution was kinda obvious. I knew how it would end from the very moment the conflict was introduced.
Secondly, depending on how you look at things, the theme could either be divorce or making difficult decisions. If it’s divorce, the ending was perfect, because a child should get to spend time with both his parents. If the main theme is decision-making, however, there’s one teeny-tiny issue: You don’t always get to choose both options. Sometimes you only get to pick one.
Anyway, I enjoyed it! I think I’m gonna give the episode a 7/10! It was a pretty solid episode overall, but I still think Grannies Gone Wild is the best episode of season 8 so far. Will that change soon? Maybe.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll catch you all in a couple days for another RHYTHM RED’S RADTASTICAL REVIEWS!!!
Hey guys! Back with more pony plushie touching up. Today is easy. We got Pinkie and RD here...
First off, Pinkie Pie has a little rip in her seam. And no, it’s not just her belly button, I checked. We’ll fix that with some transparent thread.
Now it’s time for a bath! RD especially seems to have had one too many crash landings.
But we have something to fix that!!
Okay, girls!! You ready to ride the Gravatron?
: Let’s do this!!
: START IT!! START IT NOW!!
Okay, okay. So the girls rode the Gravatron for a bit, and it worked wonders. Nice and clean now!!
And now it’s time for another ride!!
: I see you Pinkie!!
: Heehee, you’re silly Dashie!!
ALL DONE!! Now Pinkie just needs to let her curls set in...
And that’s all for today! I’m gonna try and find out exactly what fabric their manes are made of. If I can I’d like to add some red and green to RD’s mane. Always bugged me that they don’t add all her colors to her plushies.
Anyway, I’ll see you guys in the next one.
Over the past 2 days I have had some interesting and long drawn out dreams. I think they would be interesting to read...
I had a dream where it started at my school. My school was in some form of anarchy but nobody took things too far. I was in the english classroom section of the school and I asked someone I sort of know : "Can you de gauze the transporter pad with a P polaron stabilizer?" he said "Sure" and went into my classroom and started doing that. I went down to the math area but I never actually saw it, I just saw someone in my history class screwing around in there. I went back up the stairs and something lead to another, I was chasing one of my crushes and one of her friends down the hall. I chased them outside and around the school, to where they tried to go up a tree and my crush failed, I grabbed her and hugged her and I don't know what happened next. Though I started walking around the halls of the school, checking things out. I noticed that the school had 5 floors instead of 3. I went up to the 2nd or 3rd floor where I entered some sort of bathroom, one of my friends was shitting on the toilet and said hello to me with a grin, I said hello back. I walked into the library where many people I know were chatting and doing things. Some of my crushes were there, one of them was taking a german proficiency test. I left them alone and I saw the doctor (From star trek voyager) in some form of olden day suit smoking a pipe, I don't know what I said to him and I climbed up the bookshelfs to floor 5. Wore something like this with a black pipe:
which was the top of the bookshelves. Eventually I left and I said goodbye to the doctor. He said "Goodbye and stay well." I found myself chasing my other crushes through the hall, and they went into a door and down another hall where they were stopped at a pair of 2 large metal doors. I saw one of the annoying kids I hate walk into the area with a wrench, me and him fought eachother with wrenches but I presume he lost. I couldn't feel any pain and neither could he. Moving on my crushes were running from me outside, I kept chasing them, where they started to get tired and nautious, well one of them. One of them died somehow, and I caught up to the others. I don't know what happened next though they joined my 'group' with some other character from a youtube series, named Arachnid who is the sort of mob boss drug lord, edge lord type. We set off towards a large mountain in the distance. 0.5 kilometers tall, surrounded by a forest. There was a river with a large drop off, we went down this drop off and crossed the river, climbed up the other one and went into the forest. Arachnid looks like this:
We found some form of abandoned house in this forest and we made up our camp there. Arachnid gave me some xp (like some form of drug in a bag that gives you power ups in a game), I took the blue bags which gave me overwhelming power. Then there was some form of sasquatch like monster that screamed in the woods and came at us, and we hid underwater in the river. I could see it searching for us, the dream ended.
Then for today's:
I had a dream that at my school we had this thing where everyone was getting naked for some reason and running around the halls and such. In another dream it was set in some sort of restaurant, my brother was there aswell as my parents, crushes and a few other people I know. I walked by one of my crushes who was sitting alone to go sit somewhere else and she got pissed at me for not sitting with her so I sat with her and in a different part of my dream my brother and my mom were talking about how I should grow up or something. In a different dream it was set outside on some form of football field at my school, everyone was going about to random places until we were told to stop. My science teacher was some form of announcer and he threw the ball to some girl named Emma, who I don't have a crush on who exists irl. I grabbed the ball just as it hit below her feet and my science teacher and the crowd cheared and my science teacher said something how I don't breathe oxygen but breathe nitrogen. In another one it was set at my school sort of, but in some form of factory or storage facility. I was like a team captain for some of my irl friends and others, and on the other team it was all my crushes and girls. There were these carts connected together and I went first, I was at the front pulling the carts and running them the directions they had to go, to avoid obstacles and get through the area and get back to my math teacher who organized this whole thing. I had gotten 54 seconds in the end and everyone was amazed. Moving on it was my crushes turn to go and I got onto their cart, sitting down next to Commander Chakatoy from star trek voyager.
They did the same thing but got hung up in a few obstacles, and had 55 seconds. I had won but my math teacher said how I needed to have social interaction or something. One of my crushes said to me that she wasn't ready to talk to me yet. Moving on in this day we went to some form of english / history classroom with a very mean teacher. He told me to go over to some popsickle stick with glue and there was a little smaller piece of wood on that and I had stroke that across the glue and I was confused about it and he got angry at me several times before the class started. My principal's associates were in there before I freaked out and we walked outside. Just me and the teacher. I said "I'm sorry we had to meet this way." and I started to cry. He gave me 3 dollars worth in coins, but these were big 1 dollar coins,
One of them had the color of a penny and moving on I went back into the class and some other students were bullying me and I freaked out again, I threw pencils into the air and I said "Screw this shit!" and I turned into my spirit ball form and started to go out of the area. A teacher from last year, my math teacher's assistant ran after me down the halls. I was in the middle school and I knew the layout perfectly, the middle schoolers were getting out and I used that as cover before eventually running from the place and never coming back. In another dream there was a south korean weapon called the "AFK" which was a green and white missile to distract people or something. We had carts in this dream again and I was like the commander and I ordered "Do your thing!" and the carts started rolling and idk what happened next. This weapon was outlawed, and in the other dream with my crush alone at the table I woke up after somewhat crying and I felt bad for what I had done in the dream as I cuddled my 2nd pillow.

Ignore the garbled text. That is a bug for another day.
Been taking my time making these menus and such, and glad to see that stage of development is finally coming to an end. Chewed hard to figure out some bugs and the most efficient way to make things flow, but I think I've got it now and just need to rinse and repeat to get the rest of the menus done.
See my latest (mis)adventures in game development on the Yotes Games Blog.
Whenever the time comes(mainly when I've finished watching every episode in depth), I will rank every single friendship is magic episode from season 1 to 7 from worst to best. I will not be ranking season 8 yet, because I need more time to look at those episodes in depth, as I want my reasons for ranking episodes where they are.
Here are the rules:
The episodes will be split into tiers. They will be ratings out of 10, and color coded:
10/10 Flawless tier - Title says it all.
9/10 Amazing tier - These are episodes I would immediately recommend to a new fan.
8/10 Great Tier - Really great episodes with a few minor flaws.
7/10 Good Tier - Good episodes, but didn't do as much as the episodes with higher scores.
6/10 Decent Tier - Good episodes with a few writing flaws that hold it back from being better.
5/10 Average Tier - These episodes fall right in the middle in terms of quality.
4/10 Mediocre Tier - Letdown episodes. These episodes are consider weak or poor.
3/10 Bad Tier - These episodes suck. They may have had a few good jokes or so.
2/10 Awful Tier - The next level of bad. Stay away from these episodes.
1/10 Terrible Tier - Disgusting episodes with minimal good moments.
0/10 Hell Tier - These episodes have 0 redeeming qualities, without any funny moments.
The two parter episodes will be mashed up into one episode.
The rankings will mainly be based on story, themes, characters, and just overall entertainment.
With that said, hope you guys are excited!

Today at the drugstore I noticed some MLP merch. There were what looked like Kinder egg knockoffs in Twily, Dashie or Pinkie theme, a bit bigger than the real thing and with air holes at the top, so I don't even know whether there was chocolate in them, and the label was too small to read.
I hope Dashie doesn't get her egghead worries over these, haha.
But the really odd thing was something I at first thought was a Pez dispenser. But on closer examination it was a Rainbow Dash extendable lollipop!
I couldn't make a photo at the time, but imagine a Pez dispenser with a slightly bigger head. You push a lever on the grip and Dashie's head splits in half and the lollipop goodness emerges from it.
I found that slightly disturbing.
Also, that's a lot of effort put into one lollipop - for 1.50€. I guess the empty shell is for keeping once you've licked Dashie's brain away. (I didn't see any refills offered.)
As of today, the San Diego Comic Fest is once again over.
My only panels that I went to involved the following
1) Comic-Con in 1977: Back before I Was born, Comic-Con was a really cheap place to get into. Cheaper than Comic Fest and especially cheaper than today's Comic-Con(Yeah. I'm looking at you $300 Convention for four days). IT wasn't as huge as today's Comic Con, but I heard there was plenty to do at the El Cortez Hotel.
I also heard that back in 1980, Comic-Con got in trouble because of its Programming booklet that contained a topless woman
2) Drawing in 30 minutes: The host of this panel demonstrated how to do quick drawings of a UFO, a Fish and a Dragon. While he was overenthusiastic, it did help me with my drawing confidence(Especially with Whisper sketch)
3) Floyd Norman: Mark Evanier explores the life of former Disney and Hanna Barbera animator: Floyd Norman. He's a regular at the Comic Fest(And Comic-Con) at the age of 80. Some of his work includes Sleeping Beauty, the Jungle Book, Toy Story 2, Jabberjaw, the Super Friends, Garfield and Friends, Beverly Hills Teens and even Courage the Cowardly Dog. He's really fond of modern technology like computers, tablets and the Wacom Cintiq, and he(Along with Mark) got to see some of my Political Artwork(He and Willie Ito aren't fond of Donald Trump)
With this, Comic Fest is now over for the year. My purchases? A set of documentaries involving Movie Monster stars like Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi(Signed by Sara Karloff), and a Vacuum Metallized LEGO Deadpool figure.
My next convention is confirmed to be the BIG ONE: San Diego COmic-Con. As there will be a My Little Pony panel there, here's hoping that the crew brings in Maurice LaMarche for the panel.

It is my third experience taking pot candies, and right now I know I am time traveling right now. I walked into another dispensary, and here is what I remember.
1. White boxy room.
2. I walked up and asked for the edibles.
3. I was told it was cash only.
4. I...think I remember getting cash out and then her telling me its gotta be in a sealed bag..
I don;t remember walking out or 99.9% of anything that happened along the way. I barely remember walking into my work place and using the fax machine. It's like I was also aware of it and waited and expected my time skips to occur. I fucking love this feeling, but large portions of memory time skipping you around is terrifying. I literally hardly remember walking into another dispensary, and yet I have a white bag. I just checked my pockets before writing this to make sure the 40 bucks I had to spend that I remembered to pick up the change. I don't remember even handling my wallet. I think I want to experiment more with this lol.

Torrent of Shadows
I had a dream that I was in a dark place
Surrounded by darkness, couldn't escape
A test against my heart and my soul, the ultimate race
And the dæmons spit fire at the wound left agape
And the torrent of shadows tear through my heart
Tears at the coastline of my soul...
Waiting for the tide to turn in, so I cant start
To breath again — need something to fill this hole
I had a dream that I could take the pain
No longer — I try to stand no matter how much it hurts
Just waiting for the fall of the rain
To wash away the sorrow the darkness exurts
And the torrent of shadows, it fills my world with pain
I can stand it no longer, the torrent of shadows must end
It leaves a stain on my heart, 'till it comes back again
How to I mend
The soiled, stand cloth of my soul?
The torrent of shadows...
The torrent of shadows destroys what I hold dear...
Will there be anything left once it's no longer here?
What will I be with no light...
Once the torrent of shadows falls?

This is a poem I wrote because I needed a good cry.
She would cry when things didn't go her way.
She would cry when she didn't have the heart to talk to his face.
She would cry by herself.
She never wanted someone see her cry for help.
She didn't want to be seen as weak.
She just cried and never turned the other cheek.
She cried instead of solving her problems.
She cried when no one would read her stories.
She cried because she felt so lonely.
She cried because she felt she had pushed everyone away
She cried because for her that was like any other day.
She cried because that wasn't uncommon.
She cried because she felt like she couldn't acknowledge that someone somewhere actually cared and wanted to reach out.
She cried because she always felt left out.
She cried because she never learned how to fully express herself.
She's crying right now because she's hurting. Can't you tell?
She cried and cried but her tears still haven't dried.
She cries because if she doesn't she feels dead inside.
She cries for all the friends she lost.
She cries because she feels it was her fault but at what cost?
She cries because it's so frustrating.
She cries because her heart is breaking.
All of us have a cage.
It's a cage we build for ourselves, over time. We build it originally as a safeguard to contain our inner beasts, and the bars are forged from the lessons we learn about acceptability and fitting into the world around us. This is when the cage contains things like stealing, killing, harming and such; they're things we're taught not to do, so we cage them up using the bars forged from the earliest lessons impressed upon us.
However, as we grow older, we begin to learn more about the world around us... and, because of such, we have to learn more ways we should curtail our thoughts and behaviors. This is when we add things to the cage like lying, cheating, greed, bullying and the like; we grow from children into adulthood while assimilating all this data about behavior and what is expected of us.
This is also where we begin to have things placed in that cage that we don't want to be in it; we can't party all night, because we have school; we can't talk back to our authority figures, because they control everything; we can't live on junk food & video games, because it isn't healthy for us. Granted, some of us indulge in these things anyway - but we're taught NOT to by the rest of the world. So, into the cage they go.
Then, as we trek through adulthood, we begin to discover that society is much more than we ever realized as kids, and we now want to be a part of it in some way, whether to go into it in person or bring it to us via the Internet. So, we feel we have to adopt certain ways of acting and speaking, in order to "belong" where we've found a place to fit in. That's when we add labels to our cages, and choose things to put inside like Liberal, Democrat or Republican, and we add other things like gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, bisexual or asexual to the cage, and even trivial things like skin color or author preferences to signify that we cannot even THINK that way, else we get found out and thrown out of this place we've found to "belong".
By this point, our cages have grown large and complex... effectively making them self-contained labyrinths within our souls, keeping us penned in and preventing us from seeing anything but the view from between the bars.
Because we also begin to lock ourselves in there, as well.
When it reaches a point, you begin to feel tired. Tired of trying, tired of talking, tired of waiting for change, tired of being stuck in the same routine, day after day. And as you wear down, it just becomes easier to just run on auto-pilot and make it through another Tuesday at the grindstone. Or it just becomes easier to give up. Or it just becomes easier to not care anymore. Whatever the reason, you begin to find more and more reasons to cage up your own words because you feel they might offend... and you no longer have the will nor strength to fight back. Because you're so damned tired of doing it again and again.
Those are the moments to remain vigilant of, my friends; they're the things that cage up who you are.
It is vitally important to keep a steady guard up against falling victim to apathy and becoming jaded, because that's when you lose the key, and wrap yourself in angst and misery because you've grown bitter at all the bars in your cage, unable to see more than a pinprick of light at any given time. At best.
Don't try to claim you have no cage; you do, whether you like it or not. It's there, and YOU built it from whatever you picked up from school, friends and family. It may be huge, small, thin, thick, anything - but you have one, regardless.
Self-reflection and self-acceptance can do well here, as they aren't exactly cages as much as they are concepts of ways to monitor & learn oneself with minimal restrictions. After all, if you know yourself well, you should understand why you react as you do and work towards reaching an understanding of who you truly are within your own mind. From there, you don't break the cage - NEVER break it - but you learn to allow the bars to soften, with work and patience, into strips of cloth you may then use to stitch together a suitable outcome that has you neither denying your flaws OR your strengths.
Make the cage into a cloak of personal harmony; work with challenges, not restrictions. Don't see failure, see chances to learn. Don't lock yourself away because you feel as though you're stifled from all directions...
Be your own key.
You'll always have a cage... you just don't always have to be in it.
So, I decided to go ahead and buy a ticket to the Babymetal concert because yolo. Seriously, it’s not like I go to concerts very often and how many chances will I have to see this group. I just didn’t want it to be like last time when I wanted to see Arch Enemy(another band that doesn't tour in the U.S. often) and ended up not going. I just realized that this is my first “metal” concert and I have no idea what to expect. I just hope it’s as awesome as I have heard their concerts are.

I still feel like I'm in a cage constricted on what I can do and my parents are getting angry at me for not going to church cause they think I'm loosing my way to God and every time I go to church I get depressed and get the shakes and my parents will not believe me they think it's the spirit that is doing it and I keep telling them it's something else and I don't like being forced into something I don't like and my parents think I shouldn't see a counselor cause my parents don't believe in them and want me to see a counselor with Christian belief and my mum constantly asking me who I'm talking to when I get a message on my phone.

After I failed Fake It 'Til You Make It, I decided to put all 28 failed episodes in order from worst F- minus to least worst F+. That list eventually expanded into a complete list of episodes I graded, from the best letter-plus episode to the worst letter-minus, .
The statuses can be found here: A episodes, B episodes, C episodes, D episodes, and F episodes. With each list compiled, I'm taking every episode in the show and arranged it in order from the best to the worst. The list is always subject to change; episodes could be upgraded or downgraded at anytime.
Unlike my statuses, S8 episodes are in bold underline; unannounced/leaked ones are under the tag. Once they're officially published, I will uncover them.
To see every piece of FIM media I graded (and how I graded each episode for each season), click here. That gets updated during each season and possibly in between or during the offseason, if I changed one.
And for readability purposes, I sectioned each list with "— — —" in between. Let's begin!

Found some scary stories online,
@King of Canterlot recommended me to do a scary story video (due to me having to use a torch to light my room because my light blew but it's fixed now, I just made the video because recommendation)
I ended up blacking out half way through the experiment, surprisingly i didn't actually sleep for that long. Never gonna do this again, since it was super boring to do that experiment.
I will be trying other way less dangerous stuff next month, ironically involving sleep again, except it won't involve staying up for 3 straight days.
I recommend opening a new tab and listening to this song while you read. Its one of my favourite classic Brony songs, and evokes a strong nostalgic feeling.
On this day, all the way back in 2014, I decided to give My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic another chance after realizing I liked Twilight Sparkle and found that I actually enjoyed the show quite a bit. Back then, I was way less mature, more shy and still went to high school. My first time in the fandom was mainly spent listening to Brony music from this playlist on YouTube, as well as watching some videos from the YouTube Brony community. I had some interactions with members of the community as well, but, it was from the comment section on YouTube, so you can kinda guess how that would have turned out, yeah, I kinda embarrassed myself a little there but its all good now!
Later that year, I decided to search Google for some communities related to this newfound obsession of mine, and found a few sites that seemed interesting, such as What is a Brony?, Equestria Daily, Bronyland and MLP Forums. Some places I visited didn't have a proper community of their own, or they were more like news websites for the fandom and didn't really seem all that appealing to me and if they did have a community, I didn't really know about it (as was the case with Bronyland and EqD). I created my account here on June 30th, 2014 shortly after browsing the website for a bit and finding that I liked the community here and wanted to start being more involved with the fandom outside of YouTube. I was a little nervous, but, I eventually (cringe warning) made my first post. Back then, I was known as shoyrumaster11, and as you read my first post, you may have noticed that most of my exposure to the fandom came from watching so-called "anti-Brony" videos and trying to figure out how anyone could be so triggered by a simple cartoon on TV.
For a good portion of my time in the fandom, I spent it here on MLP Forums, occasionally making posts and sometimes actually interacting with the community and eventually, I wanted to branch out a little more and tried to find some meetups nearby, as well as a more local fan site but unfortunately, my parents didn't want me to be in any meetups back then due to concerns for my safety. My friend @Frequency Wavelength introduced me to Bronies Australia, a more local website which unfortunately wasn't very active, but it was great to know that this wasn't only some weird thing that Americans do a lot. After a while, I did also start to decline interest in this website due to some drama with the staff that was going on at the time and made a blog post last year explaining why I left the site. At the time, I was mainly a part of Equestria Daily's Morning and Nightly discussions and a regular on PonyTown, where I met a certain special someone...
Through the years, I have made many friends and, at a very slow pace, learned to be more confident in myself and to try to enjoy my life a little more and be grateful for what I have. I'm still learning even today, but, I'm thankful for everyone in my life who has helped along the way, including those I met via the fandom and its presence on the web, and in this section, I just wanted to say thank you to some people I met through the fandom who are special to me, including those who are not on this website.
- @Jade Fire, I wanted to say thank you for being among the people to welcome me back on to this website when I decided to come back, and always being very friendly and understanding, even through tough times. I always enjoy talking to you and at times, a part of me does wish we could be friends outside of the internet, I consider you one of my best friends and I'm very grateful to have met you and to be so close to you.
- @PuddingPonyPal, you don't seem to come here very often, but if you ever read this, I just wanted to say thank you for welcoming me back on the website late last year. You have inspired me to try to be more creative with my art and fiction and you are very much a close friend to me.
- Minty Root, I remember you from back in the days when I was on EqD's discussions. I consider you one of my main inspirations for my (currently in the works) YouTube channel and I actually used to enjoy chatting with you on EqD. I am a part of your Discord server now, and as of writing this, I'm kind of wondering why we don't chat more?
- @SparklingSwirls, I really enjoy chatting with you and being your friend, and since chatting with you about it on Discord, you're also one of those people I want to meet at some point in real life, I actually really enjoy it when you be silly and you have helped me out of my depression, and we both seem to share a lot in common. Whenever I need someone to talk to, or just want to say hi, you are the first person I talk to.
- @StrawCherry, I feel like we are really good friends and, despite your being busy all the time, I kinda see you as the sister I never had. I enjoy your passion towards art and technology and I encourage you to continue doing that!
- Grazin, I really do mean it when I say that I enjoy being your friend. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone, and I always have fun on your Discord server. You are very kind and I think you are stronger than you realize. I know you've been through a lot and might have had a rough past, but I just wanted to say that you shouldn't let it define who you are, I think the fact that I enjoy my friendship with you to the point where I have considered inviting people to your Discord server, so they can meet you says a lot, I might not be on Equestria Daily any more, but you are among the people I met from there who I still enjoy being around.
- Enigma, you are a very cool guy and I actually really enjoy seeing your passion towards music. I consider myself lucky for having met you and I wish we chatted a little more.
- @Frequency Wavelength, thank you for introducing me to the Aussie side of this fandom. It really helps me to know that I can share my interests with people much closer to home. You are a very cool and very friendly guy, and I think we would be great friends
- SGB, we only really met when I joined Grazin's server, but, I've always thought you were very kind and friendly. I think we should chat more ^^
- @Battenberg, we've only just started chatting recently, but, I think you are a good friend so far, so thank you for letting me be your friend.
- @Valencia, you are a very kind individual and I just wanted to say thank you for being there for me when I needed it and for being a good friend and a good person in general. I hope everything is going very well for you.
- Mountain Dreams, we don't chat as often as we used to, but I've always enjoyed being your friend and I enjoy talking about the latest MLP episodes with you and I think you are a very good friend.
- @Totally Lyra, you're my favourite moderator on this website and I have fun reading posts from you and being your friend. Also, Lyra is still the best pony!
- Raven... I have a lot to say about you and I'm not even sure where to begin... My long distance relationship with you meant a lot to me and I do still miss you quite a lot, I remember that we met on New Years Eve in 2016 and I really enjoyed talking to you and to this day, there is something about you that I still love. Not sure if it was your kindness, your friendly attitude, your love of music, the fact that you are a fun lady to be with or anything else, but, there is something about you I love and I cherish all the time we've spent together and miss you greatly. You have shown me what true love is like and I never expected to meet you at all. I know things weren't always the best between us and that a lot of mistakes were made, but, I always thought it was still worth being with you because you at least tried to do what you could to make things work out. I wish we had more time to chat with each other because I genuinely enjoy your presence and words cannot even begin to describe how I feel about you as a person. The thing is, I don't even feel like your absence was entirely your fault, though its still something that should have been talked about, and I'm sorry for not having the courage to just simply talk out my problems. The fact that I still think about you and the fact that I still miss you must mean something. I love you, Raven and truth be told, if you ever come back, I'd want to give this another chance and see if we were really meant to be... A lot has changed since we last met and I'm more confident than ever and I'm ready to be in a relationship this time, and I'm ready to put in the extra effort for you. The thing is, you are unlike anybody I've ever met in my life and words will never be enough to describe how I feel about you... Thank you for everything, Raven. I genuinely mean it when I tell you I love you, and I hope we meet again soon and maybe work things out...
To some, Bronies might be seen as some "fad" in popular culture, but, with all the experiences I've had and all the wonderful people I've met in this fandom, I think it is so much more than that. We are very much a community as well as family and even though I've still got a lot to work on, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone in the fandom for helping me to grow and become more confident and enjoy life a little more.
I think there is something special about this community of like-minded individuals and even though we do go through a lot of difficult times, we always come back stronger than before, I never expected that a community based around a popular show would mean so much to me, but, evidently it does, and I am very thankful for that. I may not enjoy the show itself as much as I used to, but I still do enjoy being part of this community and I promise that it will always have a special place in my heart and I'm proud to be a Brony and even more proud to have met all my friends from across the fandom, I think that even by the time life gets too busy for me and I cannot actively be in any geeky community, I will still have lots of fond memories of my time as a Brony and I promise I'll pass all the lessons I've learned on to my possible son's and daughter's in the future and I might even show them some episodes of MLP. Thank you, everyone.
