I'm Home by The1King I'm Home by The1King
I'm not sure how many of you can remember when it happened for you, but it was two years to this day that I watched My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for the first time. That day set me on the path I am now and I have no idea where I'd be today if I did not. I wasn't sure exactly how I'd commemorate my 2 year anniversary of being a brony but I settled on drawing me with the Mane 6 as it seemed most appropriate.

My story isn't a great one but considering that I was originally a hater that became a brony, it means a bit more to me I guess to remember this day.

Thank you so much :iconfyre-flye: for without your work that got this series going I would not be where I am today.

I remember I got into MLP in August 2012, because of a Youtube called Benthelooney, he kept talking about how good it was, and I was on the fence about watching it thorough the entire summer. 

I thought it was going to be terrible, but I was SO wrong.Clapping Pony Icon - Fluttershy Clapping Pony Icon - Applejack Clapping Pony Icon - Twilight Sparkle Clapping Pony Icon - Changeling Clapping Pony Icon - Princess Cadence Clapping Pony Icon - Trixie Pinkie Pie Scream01

This is great! These ponies mean so much and so many different things to each of us, however I think this picture is a prefect representation of the feelings we had when we found these fillies. Thank you for reminding me of this, today it was greatly needed! Happy Ponyversery!

Thanks. That was what I was trying to convey here. I did see one of a POV where the viewer is greeted by Rainbow Dash and a bright light as she holds out her hoof to the viewer saying "Let's go home", but I wanted to get something more after that. That moment where you finally arrive to a new place and yet they all greet you like you've been there before but it was a long time ago. That feeling of coming home for the first time sort of thing. Because really, it's how I feel now looking back. I honestly can't say I was miserable before becoming a brony cause I wasn't, but this show has brought a kind of happiness to my life that I really didn't understand before. It felt nostalgic but also new at the same time, harkening back to one's childhood but at the same time trying to prepare you for adulthood. And the fandom feels like family because there is a sense of belonging. Sure it doesn't always get along but no real family does all the time. Even though sides clash, there's always something that can bring us back together.

Don't remember the exact day, but early February 2012. The show gave me a reason to smile again, and the fandom was another reason... Those were the days. Many things changed tho, but I'm glad the show and the fandom are still up and running!

By the way, I really love this pic, awesome work! :iconclapplz:

I know the feeling. And yes, drawing Mane 6 is a great way to commemorate those dates. Happy Ponyversary!

Flutters turned out best of all here, I'd say.

I mostly remember cause my transition wasn't just like someone stumbling into the series. I knew it existed and that the fandom was real, but I was a hater before I watched the show. After I did I became an avid fan.

Ha! You noticed that? Well I wear it every day so I had to include it. Even my ponified self, Card Stock, wears it. Getting close to having had it for a year and I still treasure it greatly. ^_^

Oh, and thanks, it's been a fun 2 years ^_^
