I'm new on Newgrounds, and, roaming on the forums, I've found this thread.
I must confess, the first time I saw the MLP show I was attonished. I mean, the plot is so "classic" to be the most boring of all, and the Everfree Forest part is a pure nonsense. So I can't explain why I liked it so much.
From episode to episode, I found terrifying pieces of nonsense, rough characters, boring plots and the unbearable "Letter to Princess Celestia", but at the same time, my love for Little Ponies grew up. I don't know how It's possible.
I hope this community isn't like others I came across on DeviantArt, totally intollerant and mentally-closed.
But, reading some posts, I know you're not.
