Walk with the Dreamers by Zedrin Walk with the Dreamers by Zedrin
(Big file warning.)

"Walk with the dreamers,
the believers,
the courageous,
the cheerful,
the planners,
the doers,
the successful people
with their heads in the clouds
and their feet on the ground.
Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it."

-Wilfred Peterson

It was about a year ago that I discovered Friendship is Magic. I've never been so affected by a fandom before. It's helped me further develop my artistic ability and creative sides and has introduced me to a community that I'm proud to be apart of. I can definitively say that I would not be where I am at now, and I would not be as content if it were not for MLP:FiM and the community that came from it.

I've learned that fellowship is stronger than pride, love is stronger than hate, and I've learned to forgive and forget. As Chaplin once said, we want to live by each other's happiness, not each other's misery. Such words have never rung more true for me.

So, thank you. Thank you, Lauren Faust, for being such a huge inspiration and planting the creative seed, and for your influence in all the cartoons I grew up with, thank you Hasbro and Studio B and Top Draw for bringing us such an amazing cartoon, thanks to all the writers, such as Megan McCarthy, on the team who make the plots possible, the animators and artists, such as Sibsy and Kreoss, who bring the characters to life, thank you Tara Strong, Ashlee Ball, Tabitha St. Germain, Andrea Libman, and all the voice actors who give the characters such dynamic and lovable personalities, and thank you Daniel Ingram and William Anderson for developing such an amazing score of songs and music.
Thank you, brony community, for embodying the principles of love and tolerance, and thank you to sites like EQD for keeping everyone connected, and to the meetup groups at ASU and Phoenix, whom have helped me find a niche where I feel I belong.
Thank you to my friends, especially within the Project Saturation staff whom have become a second family to me.
And thank you, my watchers, for helping me reach the 20k pageview mark and supporting my work.

Amazing. Couldn't have said it better. The thing is, MLP is a lot more than just colorful pictures and plot. It's the thought, the idea. And you really made that count, right here, right now. The haters and dislikers of MLP often are blind to what bronies see.

Has anyone else seen a trend in who is a brony/pegasister? It's usually someone who is very insecure in their life, but still holds on for the sake of their friends, possibly people with family problems who depend not on their blood and heritage but who deserves their respect. MLP gives us something to hold onto, because we believe in friendship itself. And the thing is, everyone can find their own character somewhere in the show, whether it's a mix of two characters or strongly in favor of one.

Besides just funny memes, great cartoons, even better fanfics, and epic shows, MLP is the idea that friendship really is important, and life is very open to new opportunities. Look at the show. Look how many opportunities each pony has, how much life they have ahead of them. And that gives us hope. Why are their "Human in Equestria" fics? Because their life and their way of living, their security and friendship is exactly what we want in our world... but we've already messed our world up, and the fact is, it isn't gonna get better unless we apply what we learned from MLP into our life.

The brony fanbase is growing at a rapid rate, freeing people from oblivion and depression. Besides just MLP, there are also other groups which are impacting the world - the gamer community, very important, but that's another story.

I just really appreciate how you wrote all this and did all this beautiful artwork for the sake of keeping MLP not just funny cartoons. Thanx, it means a lot to me and the brony community.

~Sincerely, Derpy

Oh my...
Those words....
That comic...
I'm just a 3 month brony, but i am [or will be] as glad as you are for being a brony.
In fact, I still remember my initiation as a brony like if it was yesterday....
On February 20-something, 2012, I was on 9gag when suddenly, I saw comments with MLP references, and also a comment saying exactly this: "Our generation is doomed, there are no good shows now. Thank God My Little Pony won't air in my country", and i just liked it as if it didn't mean anything. Like an hour later, I asked myself "Mmm....Why do people hate that show that much?" In that moment I didn't know the great brony phenomena, so i just (as a curious guy) went to youtube. I searched for "My little pony capitulo 1" (as i'm a latino) but instead found the 1,5M-viewed Slutfox's You're gonna go far kid. I knew in the moment i saw it it was a ponyfied version of Offspring's song, so i checked it out. 4 times in a row. I loved it. The change of pitch gave it awesome voice, and a faster awesomeness. One thing got to another and then i met EqD. EqD showed me mind-blowing Fanfics, amazing original Music, epic Art, awesome Games, beautiful PMVs, and many other stuff.
It wasn't until the next week that i knew the amazingness wasn't only in the fandom. I loved the personalities of the ponies, the deep stories, and the epic animation, i should mention.
Now, 3 months have passed and now, I am proud to be a brony [yes, blackgryph0n reference]
Thanks Brony community.

* clap clap clap clap clap* This made me cry. Can you imagine what the world would be like in a hundred years if this became people's actual quest in life? Just to make it a better place than it was when you arrived. Even if just the bronies think like this, the outcome would be amazing.
