I first heard about Friendship is Magic at PAX Prime last year when someone asked the drawers to put Derpy Hooves into the panel. I looked up what the heck it was, and that's how it all started.
What's not to like? Everyone is extremely creative, welcoming, caring, and warm. I'm a big follower of the music scene within the fandom, it is probably my favorite part.
So hard to choose! Rainbow Dash is my favorite of the mane cast because of her desire and intensity to reach her goals (of joining the Wonderbolts) and I connected with that and my weight loss goals and the 100lbs I lost since January of last year. Vinyl Scratch is my favorite background pony; I'm a big fan of the music in the fandom, especially the electronic music, and it's easy to tie the two together.
Hey everyone! Josh Dean here, runner of Bronies MKE, your northern brother! I work for a company in Chicago and occasionally like to get down to the area, so why not make some more fun out of it?
