*surprised that wasn't posted here when it was first announced*

This is one of those things I would gladly get if I had the money. The sparkling cutie marks are a bit much, though, and the lack of quality attempt on Vinyl's goggles saddens the world.

All of this. ALL OF IT.


Despite not being the expository type of Brony, these would make me change my habits.

Also, I still don't know who all is going as far as UPNers, other than Deoxys... though I'm not sure there is anybody else going other than Deoxys... XD

Why was I never informed of this thread? Just because I haven't been on UPN in months doesn't mean I wouldn't participate in this kind of discussion! *Glares at Nick and ABL-chan*

Anyway, Nick and Dani got me into the show several months ago, I can't say for sure how long it's been. At first I was very hesitant, as it's "My Little Pony", but after being intrigued by the first episode, and liking the second, I was hooked without realizing it.

Nick tried to convince me to watch it by telling me one of the Mane Characters is basically ABLY in Pony Form. That actually made me want to watch it less, what if I guessed wrong!? That would mean I don't know my Best Friend that well, I might have to commit Hari Kiri! Luckily, it took me maybe 5 seconds to recognize the Pony in question when she was introduced ;)

Anyway, Mane 6 Rankings for me

1: Twilight Sparkle: I freaking love her, she has one of the most complex and developed personalities I've ever seen. She is genuinely likeable in so many ways (Intelligent, Kind, humble, actually a badass, etc) while still being fallible enough to round out her character, including having weaknesses that make us feel protective of her (Lesson Zero, anyone?), and to top it off she's basically the pony version of me, making it very easy for me to empathize with and relate to her. Not only my favorite character in the show, but possibly my favorite cartoon character of all time. 10/10

2: Fluttershy: Isanely likeable, so many other "cute" type characters somehow manage to be ungodly (UnCelestialy?) annoying. (Shippo, Komachi, Mort, etc) Not Fluttershy, she couldn't be obnoxious if she tried, and some pure-hearted characters manage to be dull in their pureness, but not Fluttershy. She is always a joy to watch, and Andrea Libman is best Fluttershy ;) 9/10

3: Rarity: Let me say, I. LOVE. This character design. Rarity is a walking subversion of just about every stereotype of her kind of character. The writers really went all out designing her to be original and complex, and she could easily be the series mascot, as the risks they took in designing her are not unlike the risks they took in designing the show itself. 8/10

4: Applejack: Don't get me wrong, this is a great character, I really like her, and I always enjoy seeing her around. That being said, she has probably the least developed personality of the Mane 6, which is a deduction in points. That being said, she is still a unique and positive character, and I'm hoping to see her get more development in Season 3. She might actually surpass Rarity if she does! 7/10

5: Pinkie Pie: Certainly an endearing character, and lots of fun to have around! That being said, I sometimes find her over-the-top personality to be a bit offputting. 6/10 or 7/10 depending on the episode

6: Rainbow Dash: I do like her, I honestly do, though it took me longer to warm up to her than the others. She's a great character, and endearing to watch, but less so than the rest of the Mane Cast. 6/10

I can never really remember major differences in the CMC's personalities, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Applebloom

Abstaining on voting for the Princesses, as much as I like Luna, Celestia doesn't get enough love.

My reasons for liking the show are as follows: Complex and well developed characters; clever humor; intense action; gripping emotional scenes; sharp writing; epic music; excellent artwork an animation, and first rate voice acting

*Waves hi to Mozz, GrJackass, and Kuno*

...well, I guess the world IS supposed to end in 2012.

Anyway, good to see you again, hopefully you'll be posting more than once every year or so.

Hey Sneezy, I'm leaving tomorrow and I'll be there until Monday. Definitely gonna have to at least stop by and say hi to you and Kadota at some point.

Also, do you guys know Makkon? One of my friends is a huge Makkon fan and wants his autograph, even though I'm sure that would be incredibly odd to ask for. Maybe.

Yeah, we know Makkon, we were chilling with him at the last Utah Bronies meetup. We were even gonna have a Pathfinder group with him up until plans got changed and we ended up moving to PA again.

Oh yes, ponies. I don't know how I got so into them. But they're so cute and adorable and characterized that I can almost forgive the franchise for giving itself such a bad name before. Almost.

But let me prematurely cut off my fangasming with a list on my pony preferences:

1) Rarity. She knows what she wants, and she has to make conscious decisions between her friends and her dreams. Very realistic, even underneath all the ham.
2) Twilight Sparkle. She's the exasperated voice of reason, and she's had more character development than you usually see in the entirety of a kid's show.
3) Pinkie Pie. She usually has the best songs, and she's so random.
4) Rainbow Dash. Even though she's got a specific goal like Rarity, she isn't all that motivated to doing anything. She's badass though.
5) Applejack. I don't hate her, but she doesn't seem to do a whole lot besides apples. So idk.
6) Fluttershy. Eh. I get that she's cute, but ... she doesn't sit right with me. Maybe it's she's just too delicate or something.

But Discord is best villain, hooves down.

Makkon posted a video of the Utah meetup online, I was wondering if you two were in it. I saw a boat race.

So, I'm sure we all remember Tara's Twilightlicious. Well, not be be outdone, Andrea Libman has done a "-licious" for both Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie.


So, um, yeah. This is awesome.

I dunno about Fluttershy, but I'm pretty sure that Pinkie was Bree Faith, not Andrea Libman.

Bronycon was fun. Really, really fun. The most fun I very possibly I've ever had. I'll talk about it later, but here's a spoiler.

Andrea Libman provides the voice for both Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie. Or do you mean that someone named Bree Faith provided the voice for Pinkie in that YouTube video? Sounded like Andrea to me.

I know, I was just saying I'm pretty sure Andrea didn't do those. And I'm right

She was at the con, and she's also the most popular fan VA for Pinkie. She's basically the closest a fan can get to Andrea, but some of her stuff I'm not the biggest fan of

Got it. Thanks.

I'm sure we'd like photos and to hear stories and such. It's getting late though already. Did you just get home? Perhaps tomorrow. Looking forward to it either way.

I'm still in my hotel in Secaucus, going into NYC tomorrow I think. I wish it wasn't over already, but oh well. I suppose I could try going to Canterlot Gardens I had a lot of fun, and it was my first con.

Being five feet away from Tara Strong and Cathy Weseluck as she danced on stage for almost two hours during Bronypalooza was so awesome, not to mention Mr. de Lancie was sitting three feet to my right watching the whole thing like a little kid in awe.

Also, Tara Strong dancing... yeeeeaaahhhh
