Do you like changelings? Of course you do, that was rhetorical, buggos are cute.
Buggos also crave love and want nothing more than your biggest of hugs. How fantastic!
Ever since Thorax's debut in The Times They are a Changeling, he has been one of the warmest, friendliest and cutest characters on the entire show - that's right, Fluttershy, you have serious competition as Top Cinnamon Roll. Thorax is as loving and kind as Chrysalis was cold and brutal, which ultimately helped him ascend to the throne as the new King of the Buggos. Now a peaceful race of fairy bugs, Thorax and the changelings share love as opposed to taking it.
What better way to celebrate Thorax Day than by coinciding it with National Snuggle/Hugging Day? That's right, January 6th is officially recognized, at least in the US and Canada as National Snuggling/Hugging Day. As such, let's take this day to focus on not only being kind to everyone around us, but to give out hugs like candy to those who welcome it.
Just a Few Things YOU can do for Huggo de Buggo Day:
* Post in topics regarding Thorax - episode discussions of episodes he's been in, lore topics, discussions, etc!
* Put on a changeling avatar - be it Thorax, an OC or even a modest drone, as long as it's a cute changeling it'll work!
* Bother @Jeric and Friends and see if they'll create some Thorax & cute changeling related reaction buttons for the forum. He'll probably do it anyway though.
Spread love on this day and show appreciation to our fairy bug friends.
Oh, oh! It's lunchtime, do you guys mind if we hug?
WARNING: Season 2, Episode 14 SPOILERS!
In today's episode, Rainbow Dash called Derpy by name, rendering her previously fanon name official. Derpy then went on to have a full speaking role for a good minute or so in which she destroyed part of Ponyville's town hall, much to Rainbow Dash's frustration.
This event is significant because it proves, once and for all, that the show's creators are well aware of their fandom and listen to their viewers. Derpy originally began as a simple animation error in the show's pilot episode, but became a hit character among the fans.
