(Big file warning.)"Walk with the dreamers,
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."
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.
