All right. So I'm experimenting with a new format here. This storyline is actually FOUR regular pages, strung together into one scrolling comic. Mainly because they're meant to be read together. Please full view in order to make sure you can see everything!

Based on true stories.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am a Brony. I openly admit it. I got into the show last September... and honestly it's one of the best animated shows I've seen to date. Seriously. And it's also one of the greatest communities of fans I've met.

So yes. I am a fan. And yes, I do plan on posting MLP-related art here on DA. So consider yourselves forewarned. :D

Cheers!

Droakir

That is an interesting story, I never got really into it and that my story of how I first watched it is just me on the Internet and some friend did fan art of the fandom, ?I was thinking Why? I watched it, years later, he had gone of it due to the insanity of the fans.

I think I was one of the lucky ones. I started watching the series after the first four seasons and the first movie had already aired. I sort of binge-watched the series (as people do) over the course of a week or two. And I skipped a whole ton of the fandom drama, arguments, and other things that had arisen during the previous seasons. By the time I had "officially" joined the fandom, things had settled down quite a bit. As a result, I had a very good experience meeting people and getting to know them.

I kind of stay away from any fandom, even the Doctor Who fandom, especially doing fan art as in the past, I used to do fan art but then started doing OCs but the fandom made me like some actress being typecasted, expected to be the fan artist than be a character designer. That is why I abandoned my other dA accounts and started fresh as LaptopGeek.

yep, that's how it went down for me too except for me it was deviantart's pony fan-art instead of netflix. my initial reaction was the same, when you watch ONE episode you watch the season and after that you're HOOKED on ponies XD

Ah yes... you must be careful or you quickly become trapped! :D

Wow, you're so lucky you had someone to start watching it with :D
Droakir's avatar
Yeah, I do think it was lucky. It also gave me folks to chat with about everything. :D

Nice to see your cartoony take on how you got into it, very well done. :nod: Obviously I'm not into MLP and never will be, but I'm not going to think less of you because you are, if you enjoy it, go right ahead and do so. :)

Thanks Mark. :)

Your reaction after seeing the first episode is roughly the reaction of 99.8 % of all guys that saw MLP the first time.
"Huh, this isn't half bad, i gotta check the next epsiode." And Before you know it you spent a entire afternoon watching the first season, and after that.....you have been assimilated into the Heard.

I was an odd ball. I saw Chrysalis and I thought she looked really badass so I did some research and saw that she was from MLP. I actually started calling myself a brony as soon as I BEGAN watching the first episode and I watched every episode with no care in the world that it was My Little Pony, a show thought of as being for little girls. I watched straight through every episode (season 3 was about to be released.)

As for me, i saw all the ever increasing pony fanart on DA, so i got curious and decided to see what it was all about, so i checked out a couple of episodes on Youtube, and eversince then i have been a brony.
