Why did you come on EQD?

Recommended Posts

Do you mean the forums or the regular site? If you're talking about the regular site, I had just gotten into MLP and it seemed like a good place for MLP news so I decided to give it a chance and I never stopped checking it. I didn't comment at first and just read the comments, but after a year, I got tired of not saying anything and made an IntenseDebate account to comment. My 2 year anniversary is actually on Thursday.

 

If you're talking about the forums, I had already been going to EqD discussions for a while (though I don't post as much as I used to), and I've been having fun on the ToonZone and MLP Forums for the past year, so when these forums opened, I decided to give it a shot. Still figuring things out, but I've been having fun so far.

I went on Equestria Daily because I was curious as to if there was a "news" site for the fandom. After I found it, I sparingly started to comment on the discussions since I was mostly there for the stuff from the fandom. After a bit of time I got more involved with the discussions until the point I am at today.

Initially just as a way of plugging my own work... but seeing how little of that I actually do, I guess I stuck around because of all the wonderful people there are to chat with and help/teach.

Someone or other must have pointed me in this direction... but for the life of me I can't remember who or what it was.

I stayed because of the great, crazy discussion posts and my desperate need to feed my hunger for imaginary internet points.

EQD? I found out it existed after I decided I was going to watch the show back during the summer of 2012 and looked up an episode list. I've been checking it daily ever since then.

As for these forums... My old community died and the two guilds that I was part of after that fell apart. After half a year of nothing I found Friendship is Gaming in September and decided I really should make some Brony/Pegasister friends. I've been here ever since.

I've loved the blog since I first became a brony sometime in late 2011, and it's one of my most regularly checked websites. :happybonbon: As for the forums, I've been wanting EQD forums pretty much ever since I started visiting the site. I was so happy to see that they were made.

To find some active MLP FiM forums.

Same here. I also just want to share my opinions on episodes with others on a more active basis. Also, I've followed EQD for all pony news since 2013.

EQD the site? Followed that ever since I got into pony (though I kinda stopped for a while last year... but I've been back for a while). Just lurked, but that's how I've always been.

 

EQD the forums? I just remembered they existed a few days back and decided to try being activeish on a forum, maybe do something more than lurk for a change. And I like FiM.

I was searching for ponies for the 10000000000th time, and I happened to have heard about "fandoms" so one of the first things to pop up when I searched MLP forums, was EQD.

I've never really told anypony this, (jk, I tell EVERYPONY I KNOW), my friends and I at one point in our lives, were VERY heavy on clopping.

 

I know. I was disappointed in what we had become. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, because as a Brony it is my duty to love and tolerate any practices or beliefs but I was lucky enough to break out of that cycle, and I noticed many changes once I was free. This is why whenever I feel even slightly tempted, I listen to "The midnight in me" and cycle through any pone songs to get back in a "normal" mindset.

 

I joined EQD hoping I might be able to find any other "purists" on the sight. But now, after spending time studying and analyzing "we're not flawless", I'm unsure if I should follow my path of "purity", or accept this "flaw" of mine. I really hope somepony may be able to help and whatever path you choose, remember that being like others is the quickest path to a life with no value, because your living somepony else's dreams.

 

My parents only know of the pony side of this story, and argue that I should be more centered on my academics. I believe that I already see the path of my purpose or destiny, and I don't see "advanced education" as a priority.  I've done hours of soul searching, and I still think I need more time to delve into my real identity.

 That being said,  I will follow my path of "innocence" and I wish everypony good luck on their journeys.

 

Please repost/quote this, not for my sake, but possibly for the hope of this fandom as a whole, and the bright futures of many foals, colts and fillies around the world, in hope that we can work with them to make a change in society, and brighten the minds of those around us, and see the possibilities of working in unison. not for money and profit, but for the benefit of our world in a whole.

And please don't take what I said too seriously. The point of life is to enjoy what we do, be with new and known friends, and just have fun!

We were put on this earth, and that is something we should appreciate, but a wise pony once told me:

 

"If you spend your life wondering why we're here, in the end, you'll never remember what you did, and you may regret it"
