Fillies and Gentlecolts,

Please join me in a round of applause for the tireless work and blazing talent of the animators at Studio B and Top Draw, the amazing voice work of Tara, Ashleigh, Tabitha, Andrea, Cathy and the others, all the writers who brought this world to life in each episode, the tireless storyboarders and production folks, the wicked creative talent of artists like Ridd Sorensen, the memorable songs of Daniel Ingram, the fantastic direction of Jayson Thiessen and James Wootton, all the other unsung heroes at the studios who busted their behinds to get this made, the execs at Hasbro who were willing to take a chance on this show, and finally, most important of all, LAUREN FAUST.

Friendship is Magic!

I'll keep this short and sweet:

Thank you, Laurel Faust and the rest of the Friendship is Magic production crew (I'd list all your names, but I don't know them I'm afraid), for restoring my faith in Western-created animation. This is the first new non-anime cartoon I've gotten into in 10 years. Thank you for giving the young girls of the world a show that doesn't insult their intelligence, and a show that also strives to offer the morals and truths that even many adults today still don't understand. Thank you for creating a show that also entertains adults, young men, and internet denizens to the point where one can truly say "I for one welcome our new pony overlords" and actually mean it. Thank you for creating characters whose flawed personalities only serve to make them even more relatable.

And thank you for making this tired, depressed senior in high school that has been worn down by the sadness real life inflicts upon us at times feel like he's 5 all over again.

Reposting from Lauren's DA page.

There's so much that I could say, but much of it has already been said - so I'll keep it short-ish :)

Thank you for all the work you've put in since 2008, spearheading the creation of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Everyone involved with this project has taken one of the most apathetic franchises in Hasbro's I.P. lineup and transformed its latest incarnation into one of the most charming, entertaining, relate-able, and beloved set of characters and stories in years. Even without your direct involvement with all aspects of episode production in the future, you've done enough in creating this wonderful project to fuel Friendship is Magic for years to come. Every 22 minute excursion into Equestria has been a joy, and I look forward to many more in the months ahead!

Best wishes and good luck to what ever project strikes your fancy and earns your time in the future. You're an amazingly talented artist, Lauren. Congratulations on the new addition to the family!

I have to say thank you, I know this is a HUGE thread and you'll never likely read them all (so many!) but I have to add my voice. This is simply a great show. I've never got caught up in something this crazy like this before and doubtful ever will again.

Whatever your reasons for stepping down, I do believe that season 2 and onwards will excel as the first has because, like you said, it's the same great team.

Come back if you can for season 3, 4, 5 and 6, okay?

I grew up on the original MLP. FiM is miles apart from it in a good way. I'm oh so very happy to see what a great show this has been and proves that a show made for girls can be embraced by a much wider audience when it includes little nods to other media and with brilliant writing and music. Thank you oh so very much everyone who was involved.

Thank you, Lauren Faust, Hasbro, and everyone else involved for this beautiful show that literally has changed my life. Even if Lauren Faust's influence on the show has decreased, I hope, Season 2 will be as great as the first.
I am a little scared of the big gap between Season 1 and 2, and also of Season 2 itself. I really don't know what to do. I feel a bit lost and desperate. It's cold turkey from one of the most amazing drugs ever. I am a bit desperate and don't know what to do. Hopefully, y'all will help me to get over it.

I've been hesitant to bring this up because I didn't want it to be 'that kind of post' and I've always been very uncomfortable drawing attention to myself, but I think it's time I did. As over-dramatic as it sounds, ponies really and truly did help save my life.

I guess I have to tell you who I am in order to explain that. My name is Eddie Perkins (atomicpanda.com) and for over a decade now I've suffered from debilitating depression. The pills I've been proscribed over the years, the ones I could afford, depression has left me nearly penniless and often have to borrow money from family to pay rent (this is all very embarrassing to talk about) haven't worked. I don't really expect them to. I'm fairly sure my depression is largely linked to something about myself that I can't change and prefer not to share here.

Anyway, before the depression really got hold I was doing OK in the comics industry. In fact, I was this close to having my first script approved for the D.C.'s Powerpuff Girls comic. Many of my friends like Abby Denson and Sean Carolan and Jen Keating (at the time) worked on it and various other D.C. kids books and the editor liked my stuff.

And then depression destroyed everything. Fell into a horrible slump where I barely drew or wrote anything. I got in to World of Warcraft. It was fun for a little bit but most of the five years I played it it was just a way to past the time. I was basically killing myself slowly. All I was doing was trying to make each day go by as fast as I could. I was alive but not living. Hopeless.

I had been a fan of Lauren Faust's Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls for years. I happened across her and her creation at a San Diego ComicCon years ago. I was hooked. Drug my friend Elin Winkler, head of Radio Comics, over and she loved it too. I bought some stuff with my limited funds (not many things for guys, of course. Sadly, I've had to sell some of it, like the postcard set to pay rent) and we both even got sketches from Lauren. I followed her work on her DA page and when ponies started showing up there I was one of the first guys to say, ' you know what, those are incredibly cute and I don't mind anyone knowing how much I like 'em.'

About that time my depression got worse and I moved back to CA to be closer to family. I didn't really keep in touch with friends. Things just kinda spiraled out of control. I was aware that Lauren was making a My Little Pony show and I was glad for her. But, i kept forgetting about it. I can't afford cable after all. I saw a big picture of Twilight at last year's (I think it was) ComicCon. It was a big ad for The Hub. I thought it was very cute. But, then I forgot about it again until I saw a tweet from Brianne Drouhard http://twitter.com/#!/potatofarmgirl that simply said "http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Derpy_Hooves" I followed it and was introduced to Derpy Hooves. From there, I found the show on YouTube.

And from there, and for the past few months, my life has turned around significantly. There's something so infectiously joyful about the series. It just makes me smile. You all know what I mean or many of you wouldn't be here. It was better than any antidepressant. I can't put my finger on it. I do know that I'd tear up with almost every episode and have a smile on my face for days afterward. I don't really know why ponies, unlike so many shows and movies I enjoy, had this affect on me.

Obviously, I'm not cured or out of the woods yet. I still have bad days, depression-wise and I'm still barely scraping by financially (don't even want to think about how screwed I am this month with two yearly bills due on top of rent), but I'm inspired again. I'm working on art and writing again. I feel like I'm living now. My subscription to WoW ran out not long after I found ponies because I couldn't afford the $15 that month and I haven't looked back. I miss my friends but not the game. I've lost about twenty pounds (my RBD 20% Cooler in 10 seconds flat shirt ran smaller than I thought it would). Things just keep looking up.

Ponies didn't save my life alone, of course. I'm lucky that I have a family that never gave up on me. I'm lucky that I have friends who have helped me out with moral support and some money here and there. But, for some reason it took ponies to sort of pull it all together and get me going again.

Now I want to give something back. To Lauren and everyone who worked on the show, all I can give is my heartfelt thanks. I know you don't know me and I know it wasn't your intention, but every one of you helped save my life. Thank you all.

To the pony community, well, I did do a Pinkie Pie painting for one sad Brony but for the whole community, well, we have a long wait until season two don't we? I have a plan. It depends on how much time I can afford to set aside for it each week, if any, but in a couple weeks I hope to have an on-going, hopefully weekly, MLP comic. I'm just going to pretend that depression didn't ruin my life for so long and that I'm doing that Powerpuff Girls comic I missed out on. It'll be rough. I'm out of practice... I'll have more info when and if to project moves along.

Anyway, thanks for reading this and thanks for ponies.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 29318

Agh, my apologies, that was my one word post. I'm still kind of new to these sorts of boards! D:

Anyway, thank you Lauren Faust. My friends and roommate still poke fun at me for loving MLP, but they're the ones missing out. I can't quite convince them to watch an episode, but I know that if they did, they'd enjoy it (even if they didn't outwardly show it).

Not only that, but a lot of the lessons in this show, although they may seem trivial and obvious things about friendship, have actually hit me hard. I started watching this show in the midst of some love life issues, and it cheered me up so much. First of all, while I was watching the show, I enjoyed myself because the show is just so well done that I can appreciate it for its story, animation, music, and anything else that comprises MLP. It created that little fantasy land where I could escape to, and yes, it was with ponies.

Everything about this series just feels so right. My heart gets all fuzzy when I think about these ponies. Cheers, Miss Faust.

Are you sure there's gonna be a season 3,4,5, and 6? I read somewhere that season 2 isn't going to start until late December or 2012 or something like that.

While I usually lurk, this time I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of praise. FiM has given me a source of sincere optimism that is usually absent in today's media and for that, I'd like to thank Ms. Faust as well as all of the rest of the team! As a classical musician, I'd like to give special props to Daniel Ingram, who constantly supplies me with tunes to hum along throughout the day without realizing it!

The December rumor was a result of people misreading an announcement that the season would complete production in December. It will start airing before then in the fall, similar to most TV shows.

I don't think Hasbro would bother negotiating agreements with international broadcasting stations for broadcasting MLP:FIM if they planned to cancel before Season 2. :)

A heartfelt thanks to the entire MLP:FiM team!

Thank you for making a season finale that I know I'll never forget for as long as I live!

i'm not afraid to admit this but, that same night (and also again the next morning) I actually shed a few tears because that season finale was the best season finale of any show i have ever seen! I swear, I'll have a hard time keeping my composure now whenever I hear that simply EPIC song in that episode!

Also, because these ponies are like really close friends I made, and it would just tear me up If I was ever seperated from them for too long!

So, I'd also like to thank the MLP:FiM team for allowing me to bring out emotions that I would otherwise keep bottled up inside!

Also, a big thank you to Lauren Faust for coming up with the best cartoon that anyone of any gender and age can watch on TV to date!

Personal thanks also goes to Daniel Ingram and the voice actors for giving us some awesome songs that we can listen and even sing to, as well as being awesome in their own rights.

I also want to thank Jaz for even introducing me to this series.

A massive thank you to EVERYONE involved with making this amazing show.

A month ago, I was so depressed. Everyone's a fucking asshole and no one has any care for anything it seems. Life was just a dirty smudge of existence for me.

Then I saw this show. The cuteness, the colors, the innocence... It's great escapism for me and I'm sure many other people. This show -cured- my depression. Thank you!

p.s. Don't let it turn to shit in season 2. :(

I shall also like to applaud to the talents of Lauren Faust and the rest of her production team. This show is absolutely perfect. Brovo all, and please keep it up.
