so, heres a place where we can tell our stories of how MLP "got us". For me My GF forced me to watch it with her... needless to say I didnt go in with an open mind. But after watching a couple episodes with her... I found myself watching a couple more... on my own. It was then that I realized I was a "Brony"
I love this picture too... explains everything well
I was converted after Peasantsuck's original thread. Watched a few episodes, saw the huge community then watched the rest of the episodes in a 2 day marathon.....BAM....one more brony assimilated into the herd.
When PeasantsSuck invaded the Chat thread with all his mlp stuff he convinced me to watch the first episode.
Here's my reaction/review:

5 min: The whole prophecy thing sounds extremely obvious. It's seems really stupid that a student(Or whatever she is) would be the first one to figure it out. AND IT'S ONLY TWO DAYS BEFORE IT'S GONNA HAPPEN!
Edit2: Wait wait wait wait... Some ponies CAN'T talk!? And they're forced to drag the carts and stuff!? And they're the only males too... Weird.
Racism! Against ponies!
Edit3: Kicking a cloud makes it disappear? Weird..
Edit4: So sometimes the ponies wear clothes? Does that mean they're naked most of the time?
Edit5: Alright. I laughed when she met Fluttershy.
Edit6: I don't like Spike. He's the only talking male in the entire video, which means he's the only free male. He uses his freedom to try and get with all the ponies. HOW ABOUT A REVOLUTION!?!?!?
So I weren't a brony yet. It took another 6 or so episodes before I became what I am today.
Someone on another forum showed me YouTube episodes a few months ago.
Um I had the worst hangover after some uni party. And was basically in bed an entire day, and needed something to watch. And then this pony thread showed up in the arts, so I went "What the heck" and watched the first episode posted by PeasantsSuck, then another, and another, at the end of the day i had watched from 1 to nr 17, and i did the rest the day after. Best. Hungover. Ever.
I saw all the pony hype adn was like: 'wtf is this?'. Then suddenly Cahoma becomes a brony! Which really prompted me to see what was up, so I watched first and second eps and got totally hooked. The show is good, coming from the same ppl as PPG (I loved that when I was small), so it's no great surprise.
I really have no idea what prompted me to watch the show. I couldn't get any sleep, so I got out of my bed and started watching. I suppose it was just seeing the massive numbers of memes to come out of it.
There was Show called death battle and it had
Rainbow dash vs Starscream
Immediately I began searching for anything remotely Related to Rainbow dash
Suffice to say that I found My Little pony and ITS SO AWESOME!
Yeah, Got Curious.
I thought like 'lolwut? Why's this so popular? Thingies look cute though. :3'
Then I saw some captioned pictures, some YT parodies and sketches... Then I watched episode 1... and then I was like...
THIS IS SO AWESUM!!! /)^ɛ^(\
Read Cupcakes due to link from a similiar themed fanfic on the My Little Pony section of FanFiction.net. It didn't bother me,because reading things like that was something I was used to,being a member of Fanfiction. In fact I used to (and still do) go to sections for kiddie shows and read the M rated stories for fun. This was in July. Forget about it until October. The first pony video I saw was that remix of Fluttershy smashing a bucket on Twilight's head. You know from "The Return of Harmony?" I got there from looking up videos about memes and the one I saw before that was the original "Your face" in fact. Was linked to several similar videos and continued watching out of boredom. Eventually I looked up the first episode to see what it was about. By the end of part 1,these were my thoughts. "Wow Nightmare Moon looks cool! Wait,no she's a pony! Ponies aren't cool...right? Might as well watch part 2. At least that way I could have said I'd at least seen a full episode."
(After both parts.)
That was pretty awesome! I mean they were the Elements! It was sweet too that Celestia and Luna made up. Plus Fluttershy is so cute and...Do...I like...ponies?
I've seen the series now and it's one of my favorite shows out there alongside Regular Show.
