In the last few days the confirmation of the show's ending with season 9 has sparked a ton of responses, comments, and goodbye messages from both members of the community and the show's creators. Although the news has been in the air for quite a while now, only last week things got... well, really real, let's say.
I have mixed feelings about this.
MLP:fim and its community is not going to end with the end of the show, that much I'm sure of, and I'm not the only one having this kinda thoughts.
What I really wished, tho, and I realize is now perhaps too late to do, is to get more involved with the community. Would be great if could manage to go the last BronyCon, but it's on the other side of the ocean so i don't really think it's gonna happen
Anyway I finished the storyboards of "Storm's Song", another MLP fan comic I've announced quite a while ago. While for "Gemmed Rarity" i could dedicate the most part of my days to its realization, now things have changed quite a lot and i do not have the financial resources to dedicate myself entirely to that comic project, therefore its release is going to be quite slow, i'm afraid.
Furthermore there is another comic project titled "Shadows of the True Light" that will have to see the light in the upcoming weeks and, for now, it has the priority.
So, yeah, i guess S9 is going to be a whirlwind of emotions uh? Better brace ourselves.
However it goes I will never stop being amazed by the MLP community. As any other community out there it has its lights and shadows but i believe there is something truly magical and unique at its core.
