I suppose just before the start of Season 2 when people were going nuts about it on the internet. I don't usually call myself a Brony per say, but I do really enjoy the show and have checked out people in the fandom.
I just looked for local meetup grounds and found it.
Thats' tough, I think they're all great. I suppose my tier list would be - favorite to least favorite - Applejack > Twilight > Pinkie > Rarity > Fluttershy > Dash. But again, they're all great in their own way.
Pretty casual laid back guy, enjoy a good conversation.
Had a great time at the tournament and hope to do it again soon.
