Dear MLP Fans,

It has come to my attention, that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. What the heck am I on about? Well in my opinion, the official Brony documentary, did not do an altogether great job of presenting Bronies as a worthy group. If that had been my first introduction to them, I honestly would not have been sold. It wasn't altogether bad, but they could have done so much more with it. Personally I enjoyed 'A Brony Tale' with Ashleigh Ball more (although that's still not excellent).

I propose that we all write a short essay (2 to 4 pages) on the impact MLP has had on our lives. Try to make it about how MLP touched your life. I truly began to enjoy the show, when Pinkie Pie did something for me that I'll always be grateful for.

Write about the lessons that the show teaches, and how you've been able to apply them to your own life (once again, make it something personal).

When you've written an essay, upload it to Deviantart, and send me a link (I'll add it to the list of links in the description).

I plan to approach the world's friendliest Brony (Dr. Wolf), about recording an audiobook of the essays (or at least the ones he picks out). If your essay is picked, you could make a recording of it, or ask one of the expert Brony readers to do it for you (I'm opting for the latter). The book would of course, include lots of content by Dr. Wolf himself.

Please consider this. Even if our good friend Wolf doesn't go for it, it will still be fun.

Update: The time for submissions is up, although it is possible I may do this again next year. We'll see :) Thank you to all who participated, or even considered taking part.

I understand. The holidays and all. Busy time. If it turns out to be successful, maybe I'll keep it going and you could do one later on. Did you enjoy our music? Happy holidays :)

Yes... busy, busy, busy. If you do keep on going I'm not going to be quite happy if I can do one later on, I have too many things to do though. And yes! I do enjoy your music! I would love to hear more :3

Well if you click the button marked 'Tracks' it will take you to the rest of what we currently have up at the moment. If it were up to me, we'd have more on there (originals and improved covers) but I'm not in charge of running the actual Soundcloud page. The covers are the only thing that's currently downloadable. I'm hoping we'll be putting more of those up soon because my niece and nephew have improved a great deal with their music recording since we started. I'm glad you enjoyed what you've heard, and I hope we can bring you more fairly soon.

I would love to participate but I would prefer my essay to be untouched by Dr Wolf, he is my least favorite brony in the fandom.

Okay. Maybe you could include a note at the top or bottom of your essay saying: 'Not for the book' or something like that. That way you could still participate if you wanted, but I wouldn't forget your request here. Dr. Wolf did tell me in the comments section that if I were to pick out the 10 best, that perhaps he could make a video about them. Problem is though, that a lot of people say they're going to participate, but then they never show up. Therefor, while your contribution to the book would be much appreciated, I have no expectations. I'm sure you shall decide whatever feels right to you. I won't submit your entry if you do however (although it will be included in the links). Just remember to include a disclaimer note to remind me of this promise. Cheers

No problem. I'm going to attend Everfree Northwest in Seattle this year (May 28th to the 30th) where I'll try and get more folks interested in it. After the convention, anyone who wants to contribute will have till the end of Season 5 to contribute. If my calculations are correct, that should be sometime in September (I might have counted wrong though). Anyways, best of luck with school and keep on being awesome.

I've never been good at writing essays, especially one that is 3-4 pages... Is there any other way I could contribute?
