Haven't we?

She's been walking since 2013, and I thought it was time to bring her home. With this piece I tried to outdo anything I've done before, and I can only hope I succeeded. 

First it was just Twilight and the open sky. Then it felt lonely and barren, so I gave her a photo to hold. Then she needed something to walk on, some solid ground. Oh, and where did the tree come from? Long story short, it was a case of just adding onto things until it felt right. 

It's been a long few years following along, and we're gonna do it one more time with season 9. I can't express just how much these colorful cartoon horses mean to me, but this is a shot in the dark to at least -try-. Dear Princess Twilight, thank you for showing us how to be the best person we can be.

Now this does put a smile on my face. I'm glad to see other people love Twilight as much as I do. I discovered my little pony at a time in my life when i had been let down by friend after friend after friend and i had decided that only my family mattered to me and no one else was worth it. then Twilight came and taught me the magic of friendship and i met the best friend ever. Thank you Princess Twilight Sparkle the Lavender Unicorn, You changed my heart.

Right! That was the sentiment I was trying to get across, and I'm glad it worked. :) Glad you're doing better these days and that these little ponies have changed a few people for the better!
