EDIT: Am I seeing things? FRONT PAGE?! And an award for daily 2nd place?! A big thank you to whoever was behind making this decision! I honestly did not expect this to do so well here on NG, simply because I know there's a good few people that don't like MLP here. Needless to say, I'm shocked and yet honored to have this honor. Thank you!

----------

After about four months of planning, writing, animating and procrastinating (mostly the last one of course, lol), here is the big My Little Pony project I've been working on, which is an animated rendition of the comic on ask-twilightsparkle.tumbl r.com dubbed "True Friendship." Clocking in at almost five minutes (counting the credits), this is my longest animated project yet and also one of my most ambitious.

Rather than do something focused on humor or fast-paced action like most of my recent works, I wanted to make something with a story and do my best to tell it as powerfully as I could throughout the animation. Most of the dream sequence you see here was not in the comic, and was concocted by me and with a little help from the creator of the original comic.

I could go on with how I think some things in it could have turned out much better, such as when full-grown Spike is flying and some of the expressions being a little too funny for this moody animation, but I think I'll keep my mouth shut and let you watch this animation for yourself. I will say though, I'm very happy with how this turned out, especially on the writing and timing front.

I do hope you enjoy the animation! Please let me know what you think of it; I'm all ears!

wow while the plot (NOT TWI'S ASS) is great. for some reason it didnt captivate me enough to shed tears, however i think with some re-editing is in session for the next one. that is if you are going to make another. i also want to add that i am a brony as well. anypony on this review page should read "My little dashie" on the MLP fanfic site if u liked this. animation doesnt make me cry, but a good plot and story does. i just think words on paper have more moral impact. thank you for listening and have a wonderful day!

That was excrutiatingly depressing... but very nice... in a way?
I only wonder... why does Spike need to leave?
Does Spike and Sparkle ever see eachother ever again?
And finally... why the hell am I watching a MLP fan fiction video?
Well, the animation quality was poor, but the story itself and the ability to instill emotion and thoughts more than makes up for it.
