Two seasons have come and gone now, each one filled with beautiful animation and stunning dialogue. Most importantly both seasons brought new found inspiration and insightful views into our daily lives.
I wish not to take up too much of your time; I wish only to say a few things on my own behalf to everypony out there who wishes to hear them.

Although it is tempting to bring up the cliché that perhaps nopony else feels the same way as I do, I cannot for I know that there are many others with the same views as mine; others whose lives have been touched by these candy-colored ponies and their spectacular adventures, who have also felt a newfound sort of warmth inside from their voices and their ideals. This fandom is truly magical. Not once since I have become a brony have I been denigrated by another member of the pony community. Instead I have found more friends than I could have ever imagined.

Others may one day ask "just who are the bronies?" Note I said "are" and not "were" because I believe this fandom will surpass the show for decades to come. This question will be answered with many different replies. I say this because there is no one way to describe us. We are more than just a group of crazed fans, no we are far more than just that. We are animators and the artists who recreate an essence of greatness that no one other has achieved. We are writers who turn thoughts into golden tales of inspiration. We are music makers with the ability to take emotion from the heart and form it into rhythm and rhymes. We are actors and singers and readers; and we are dreamers.

To imagine that all this started as a dream of friendship and all its wonders. To think that all this was brought to life by the enthusiasm and inspiration of a woman named Lauren Faust. To believe that all of this was written by writers just like me or you to make scripts and story lines. To know that it was given life by artists and animators not unlike us, or was voiced by actors no different than we. They  were dreamers, they are dreamers. From the ideas of Lauren Faust to the music of Daniel Ingram this whole thing started out as just a dream.

What started out as just a dream became a reality, and spread like wildfire among the people. It was a spark that was aided by the dreams and actions of people like us.

We are more than a fandom, we are a family.

Thank you bronies for sharing your dream with me.

Nopony had to be famous to be a part of the community. It only took the initiative of people like Sethisto and the members of groups like Equestria Daily. It only took the inspiring talents of those like Cereal Velocity and PinkiePieSwear. It only took the enthusiasm of people like the cast of Bronyville. It only took you, me, and a dream.

In five years, no ten years I will look back and I will remember every single part of this fandom and all that we were. Granted the show will undoubtedly be done by then, but the spirit will have lived on, and it will continue to live on forever.

So thank you to the artists like johnjoseco.
Thank you to the innovators like Sethisto.
Thank you to the authors like CoffeeGrunt.
Thank you to the musicians like Daniel Ingram, WoodenToaster, and MandoPony.
Thank you to the enthusiasts like Apple Cider and Chef Sandy.
Thank you to the dreamers like Lauren Faust.
Thank you to the people who made her dream a reality in the cast and crew of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

And thank you, for being a member of the community.

Long live the herd.

Aye, thank god for that this epic show was created in the first place and I have say it's been the most wonderful show I've ever watched and one that I'll always remember and never forget!^^. I just hope they create more seasons from here on out because it'd be amazing if they created about 5 or 10 seasons or even more than that.

This describes the Brony community perfectly. Even though there are fans who rage at haters because they're against us and other fans who take the show too seriously (being the only flaws with the fandom), everyone else including the Artists, Authors, Musicians, Game Designers, Animators and the MLP Crew who give us this gift are the true form of the Brony community. They show the true meaning of Love and Tolerance.

So this is really strange for me to ask on my own post, but I have to ask it.

Does anypony else feel sorta depressed whenever they watch the finale or listen to the songs from it because they feel like they are witnessing a sort of happiness that can otherwise not be achieved? Idk... it's like a happy depressed feeling, but with a really heavy crash-like after effect.

You should ask that question in the author's comment, it's more likely to be read :)

And in regards to your question, yes. It's that exciting feeling of watching another episode, of seeing the storyline carried on or finished with a bang. The depression obviously comes from the undeniable knowledge that afterwards, there won't be anymore new material to entertain yourself with for some time. Somewhat similar to having to say goodbye to a good friend, even if you know they'll return in time.

Or perhaps like reminiscing old memories. You may feel happy because they were good times but after all they are only memories and they are in the past, not present, and because this you feel sad that they are gone.

If you're a fan, you're a brony. xD That's all there is.
I don't understand this misconception that all bronies are furries or pedophiles or flat scum - my brother, who's a bigger brony than I am, is an extremely fit eagle scout who takes a great deal of pride in the good he does for the community.

There's nothing wrong with being a fan of a show. There's nothing wrong with participating in that fandom. And there's definately nothing wrong with being proud of it.
