What is a Brony? [10 Feb 2014|03:17pm]
Taking the Bro and putting it into Pony, Bronies are fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show.
An animation refuse for young and old to celebrate friendship, generosity, honesty, laughter, kindness and loyalty.
All mixed together with some magical songs, crisp easy to replicate flash animation and plenty of content to appeal to all ages.

But I'd want to expand.

A Brony is more than just that.

Bronies are:

Brilliant; creative and innovative, bronies have made songs, stories, comics and even entire fan-made episodes featuring the colourful cute heroes of the show. Full of inspiration the always elegant Rarity a white unicorn with perfectly styled mane and tail reminds all bronies that creating things is amazing.

Receptive; Love and tolerate is one of the key messages that the brony community promote, be nice to everyone, even those that don't like or openly hate you. Just like the most colourful of ponies, the pegasus Rainbow Dash with her rainbow coloured mane and tail tells everypony that Loyalty to each other is what makes the world a better place.

Optimistic; Laughter is one of the main (or mane...) elements of harmony embodied by the infamous fourth wall breaking Pinkie Pie, many bronies favourite pony with her bouncy pink hair and balloon cutie mark Pinkie Pie above all ponies reminds us to laugh, sometimes even at ourselves.

Nice; Such a understated quality in today's society, kindness, selfishlessness.
Real kindness changes people in act of the doing of it, often in amazingly unpredictable ways. Bronies have raised so much money for charity and good causes it is hard to estimate the exact amount but millions would probably be the starting number.
Just like the soft spoken yellow pegasus the prefers the ground; Fluttershy teaches us compassion and kindness is one of the best ways to keep friends.

Yourself; Or more accurately themselves, they don't have to pretend to be anyone else, they can happily and honestly just be who they really are.
If who they are involves watching a tv show with colourful pony characters on it, so be it.
Being able to be honest about themselves often brings out a great deal of the person's character not having to worry about hiding this element of their personality down bronies are usually more outgoing and friendly then many.
Like the reliable Applejack, honesty is the best policy, even if it's being honest with yourself.

That is the magic of bronies, it's not just individual elements, just like the show magic makes it all complete.
Like Twilight Sparkle, the now regal alicorn pony (that's unicorn and pegasus at the same time if you were curious) finds during the show you need friends, you need people that can understand you.
Bronies need each other, a community of people, all interested in a show about colourful talking horses.

Ermagahd! [18 Sep 2013|02:32pm]
I'm still getting emails from my banned account on Ukfur.org i've been trying to find a way to contact anyone there instructing them to delete it as per principle 6 of the data protection act.

Any ideas?

An update of sorts [18 Jun 2013|12:25pm]
I've been getting more back into writing, i'm still terrible at it and no, i'm not going to get better.
But I still enjoy it some, a few people say they like the stuff I do, the mood it creates in them.
A few stories i've even enjoyed writing, just feeling wanting to get them out.

It's possibly the lack of colouring, Kammy hasn't finished a comic in almost 3 weeks now and I miss the creative spark for doing the colouring (i've even downloaded a bunch of ink lines Gem said was okay to colour which i'm working on).

I've been playing minecraft and started animal crossing.

I guess I should have started saying i've found someone that wants to help bring out my puppy side more, we'll see how that goes but so far it's been nice and fun and so far removed from the lonely unhappiness of last time it's good.

I've also been trying to connect still with this missing spiritual element, i've been asking around and so far, nothing; keep trying I guess, don't give up!

It hurts however.

I can only rely on the words of others that it's not my fault, that i'm doing everything I can and that in time, it will happen.

But it's still hard.

MLP:EG haters: [13 May 2013|09:08am]
So much hate, what happened to love and tolerate,
all these people are irrate so come on bronies be strong.
Don't just this by the cover, don't prejudge it from the trail,
let the love and tolerance flow and don't just say no.
I know it's a big change, it's a step in a new direction;
but listen to Celestia and repeat her statement; It's time for a new change to come.
Change is big,
change is scary,
change makes people all kinds of wary,
but relax just a moment and try not to worry, repeat to yourself "I trust M A Larson"

A dream [02 Apr 2013|10:22am]
Not a nightmare for a change;

Sort of Dead space meets Star Trek with some bugish/plant parasite like aliens, they ate this tasty looking gloop (that could be made into human food) that started the trasnformation process and were not very hostile but were quite determined at conquering the human race.
There was a cute little girl that was mostly immune to the gloop who was trying to escape, outside the ship, which cinematically was cut away to a few times, was a cloud of human slaves all coccooned in changeling like sacs for feeding on heat and fluids, the humans were quite happy in there with some plant attached to the back of the head keeping them sedated and blissfully unaware of the situation.
The bugish/plantish creatures didn't really have any set goal or objective and were struggling to figure out what exactly to do, the humans in the cloud they had would be sufficent for at least a century and conquering more humans just would waste energy rather then be productive.
So there was a bit of an impasse and the aliens and humans just kinda started living together with the aliens pretending to be all menacing and the humans actually being scared of them, a little.
It worked until some human found the cute little girl and realised the aliens were't actually invading any more and things kinda settled down and they both got along quite well with the aliens trying to find a way to corrupt the little girl so they would one day be unstoppable, even if they didn't really know what to do with that unstoppableness.

I feel bad i don't update here more often, I find i really have very little to say honestly, most of what's happening goes on over at Fur Affinity or on chat clients.

I still read here quite often, sometimes rarely commenting on things and i'm so very proud of how well bronies are magic is growing and developing

2012 and all that [31 Dec 2012|01:31pm]
This time last year, if you had asked me he Fiona, by December 31st will you have taken part in the largest volunteer exercise since World War 2 and had an amazing time as a gamesmaker in London, will you have actually gone ahead with speaking to someone professionally about your gender issues, would you have tried letting someone be your owner, would you still be even able to type this on livejournal?

Pretty much... no, it's been a pretty wonderfilled year and i'm only now starting to get hyped about seeing Koku across in the states again, the highlight always of my year only hopefully by this time in 2013 i'll able to tell you all about what an awesome time she had visiting me here in the UK.

On the eleventh hour [11 Nov 2012|12:13pm]
I was in Manchester Picadilly station; with Gem, Zee-Zee, Slyphie and Rikku.

And we all held hands in a circle, it just felt like a good thing to do and we stood in respect as we were invited to join in two minutes of silence with the station staff, and there was a bell rang out.

There were those that didn't still in a hurry, trains still run, people still need to move but in that shuffling silence holding hands, it was ... nice, an imaginary family coming together in thanks for those that can and should not be forgotten.

Don't you have one of those annual celebrations coming up? [11 Sep 2012|10:40am]
Why yes I do, it's on the 15th.

What would I like for my birthday?

I'd like at least 60 people I know to donate $5 to http://www.goddess-ofthe-night.com/donation I can't really give you much if you do but i'll do what I can, maybe a little silly doodle or something for you.

It would make someone's like amazingly better and all it'll cost you is $5.

In memoria [11 Sep 2012|07:29am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Though our time with you is done.

Our memory should always be, A blessed and contented one.

When you think you walk alone, Always try to be serene, For part of us is here with you, Even if we are unseen.

Do not be sad that we are gone.

Smile that we were here at all.

Confuzzled + Nursery [29 May 2012|12:34pm]
So Confuzzled has been and sadly gone, for myself the highlights of the convention were Kenshi and Leinir's civil partnership which I had the huge honour of witnessing and then the nursery on Sunday evening.

For me the rest of the con was ... yeah but that's my own fault.

My roomy this year was the totally awesome SeanC ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/seanc ) with his amazingly adorable Peaches Goat suit he was super cool and I really hope my early mornings didn't disturb him too much.

The hotel, zounds the hotel is so much better then last year, SO MUCH BETTER, I really loved the hotel a lot.

Arriving Thursday got in about 2pm so was able to get into the room right away and SeanC was already there, then it was waiting around hanging out until 6pm when we got hotel exclusivsity.

At about 6 was out in suit for a while and had some fun then registration line which i forgot my ID for so had to go get and join the end of the line :p

Got to bed about 11pm was shattered after drive down.

Friday was a bit of a meh day, was feeling bleeeech and got woke up by a helicopter of all things landing just outside which was pretty cool but not if you are feeling meh.
Got up, pottered about a bit really didn't get much of anything done and went to bed again early.

Saturday was the first super awesome day, Leinir and Kenshi's wedding really almost had me in tears a great many times, they are both so amazing and loving of each other, it's really beautiful to see.

Nipped in to the dealers den to pick up an awesome badge from Taya and suffered deep nnnnngs over the rainbow dash suit, I spent a long time thinking if I could afford it and deciding I could ... but not to and save up for something 40% more awesome.

Sunday was a super awesome day it was cooler so suiting wasn't so much an a issue which is good because it was the fursuit parade.

The parade was about as usual, went down with Peaches and stood around in the main stage (an unventilated room with no water) for 35 minutes, it's not good however we did get this adorable picture ( http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8071093/ ) with Marbles which was super awesome.
The parade was pretty fun, I stayed with Zee-Zee and Gem and held Gem's tail for a lot of it to keep it from getting dirty and stepped on.

After the parade I went shopping and got a bunch of snacks and awesomes for the nursery party.

The nursery is probably what i'm proudset of managing to pull of, we had about 45 people in and out the doors at various times from those into the Adult Baby side to those that are just into diapers and even several people that were just really curious and intrested to try.

The actual event really came in four sections there was an early AB section where we had people really enjoying cub space time, we doodled on socks, coloured in drawings played with balloons and bubbles and played some kids card games that were really fun.

Then there was a toddler section where we played some more grown up games including a newly created (and very fun) version of duck, duck goose.

Then there was the cirnklelove section, lots of folks that liked diapers and lots of really in depth discussion about diapers

Finally there was the chillax section where we watched ponies and just about stayed awake.

The total highlight was security having to check for a giant oscar during the party, they were totally professional and i'd like to think nobody in the room even really noticed (even though everyone clearly did) as it was such a relaxed atmosphere so there was no embarassment over being seen in the cub room.

Then Monday I had to pack and drive 8 hours up the road, stopped off in Glasgow and saw Disturbia, Bentley and Kachi and gave Disturbia a lift up to Aberdeen.
