The time has come. It has been 3 years since I've joined the forums. It has been a long, great track. This year, instead of a recap, I'm gonna do something a little different. I'm gonna react to my old posts dating back to 2012 and see how stupid I was back then, and oh boy, do we have some generic posts today. Now, I'm only gonna pull interesting or funny in hindsight posts for this. I'm doing this quickly before the content breaks again, so here we go! This is the earliest one I could find, made on the day I joined. Yeah, I didn't even make a welcoming thread because either I didn't know you could or I didn't feel like it. This post was in a thread asking what the freakout episode of season 3 would be since only 2 seasons had aired at the time. And, yeah the fandom would freakout about it, but the other half would probably say it's "fan pandering." Wow, just wow. This was posted in a favorite and least favorite episodes of season 2 thread since season 2 had just finished at the time. And oh boy these choices are off nowadays. The only reason I said that Secret of My Excess was my favorite episode of season 2 was because at the time, I was sort of a Sparity shipper. What was I thinking? Also, Cutie Mark Chronicles is really only unpleasant in the third act. I find Baby Cakes a thousand times more unpleasant to watch nowadays. This post was in the favorite MLP shipping thread. Yes, I still love SoarinDash but there are problems with this post. One, it's probably the most popular Hetero ship in the fandom, how could I say I haven't seen much of it? Second, did I really put a + instead of an x? That was stupidity on my part. This was in a thread where you give your ideas for an episode. I must have been very into Sparity back then because I thought shipping Opal and Pewee was a good idea back then. That sounds completely pointless. Twilight becomes the mayor of Ponyville? That's funny in hindsight seeing her now. And yeah, Derpygate was recent at the time so that explains the last part. Yes, this was the favorite pony thread. Now, my post may seem normal and you may wonder why I take an issue here. Well, look at how generic it is. I've made a lot better blogs giving Pinkie the right justice love, then just, "She's funny and random and I can relate to her." If I'm explaining my love for something, I go into more detail than that. Thanks for reminding me that at one point I liked My Little Dashie. Yes, I did get teary eyed reading it, but that just reminds me why I now don't like sad fics. I feel like they use emotional manipulation to distract from poor writing so it won't get as much criticism, hence this fanfic. So, this was my life on the forums 3 years ago. I never posted outside Show Discussion and Sugarcube Corner, and I was never social with anyone. I don't even remember who was on the forums back then. I didn't start getting social on the forums until late 2013, where I started to hit my stride, especially once 2014 rolled around. So yeah, happy 3 years on the forums everyone.
Well, today is my bronyversery. Three years ago today, I first checked out the show and fell in love with it. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. It's been a long three years but I'm still in love with the show and it won't be stopping any time soon. Well that was a short blog about it. Might as well ramble. You know my lovely girlfriend here PinkiPoni? Well, I'm kind of worried about her. She hasn't logged on since the 9th and our in our last conversation, she was pretty depressed. I tried to comfort her, show her that people did care for her, but she was still sad. And she hasn't been on in over a week so I'm sometimes worried I'll never talk to her again. I do hope she comes back some day.
In case you didn't already know, today is my bronyversery. I've been a brony for 2 years now and I couldn't be happier. So, to celebrate, I'm gonna tell you about how I got into the fandom and my journey through it. This might seem like a surprise to you, but I actually first heard of Friendship is Magic when the Hub launched in October of 2010. Being the 12 year old curious self I was, I wanted to see what a chennel replacing another channel looked like. Now I only started watching the hub with some other show and I ended up turning off after a bit. I think I vaguely remember seeing the first 2 episodes of fim but since I was 12 and immature at the time I was like "What the heck is this rainbow girly crap, they're all so happy and where's the swearing and sex jokes every 2 seconds!" And then I most likely changed the channel. Little did I know I would grow to like that show later. I didn't hear about it's fandom or anything about it again until about August of 2011 when one of my sister's friends came over who happened to be a brony. He showed us some pony videos which I think were YouTube poops. I just shrugged it off as some inside joke created by the internet. I also thought that was normal since I've seen YouTube poops with kids shows before and I was more into watching lets play videos at the time so I shrugged it off as nothing again. Then once 2012 started, I started to get back into watching more cartoons since I would hear people say stuff like "Cartoons used to be awesome, and now they suck!" This got me curious if anyone liked any cartoon that aired today. I started researching until in March, I noticed that a lot of people seemed to like friendship is magic. At first I was like "These people can't be serious! How is this even remotely good?" I decided to just look up the first 2 episodes on YouTube. It defiantly surprised me. It was better than most television I saw these days. I thought it was okay but not the best thing ever but something caused me to look up the hub and DVR reruns. The next day after track practice, I went home to watch the recordings I had of the episodes Dragonshy and Look Before you Sleep. I watched them and thought "Okay, this is awesome!" I began watching them through reruns every day after school until the only episode left to air at the time was the Canterlot Wedding. I watched it when it aired and my that point, I fell in love with this show. I showed it to my sister and my step sisters who at first laughed and then they saw it and loved it. That same April, I decided to find a place online to discuss the show since discussing it IRL would be dangerous for an 8th grader at the time. I stumbled upon MLP Forums and got an account which you now see today. As I got more into the fandom, I saw how there were brony conventions. I wanted to go to these but they were never in my state. That was until that fall when Midwestria in a town not to far from mine was announced. Me and my sister went to this convention and had a blast because everyone was a brony so I could have a great conversation with pretty much everyone. Even today, I still remain a strong brony, happy on the forums with all you guys. You have been great over the years, and I hope to continue enjoying the show for years to come.
Two years ago today, I started trying out Friendship is magic, it was one of the best decisions in my life. Because of this, now I am on the forums meeting so many great friends and a great place to discuss the show. It still brings back nostalgia to trying out the first 2 episodes, then the next day watching the reruns on the hub, mainly over Spring Break. So EVERYPONY CELEBRATE PINKIE PIE STYLE!!!!!!!
