With that out of the way, I'd like to share some of the above mentioned events.
The second achievement requires some explaining. Around the time of my last post, I was very Anti-Brony. I thought that grown men that watched a show for little girls were completely pathetic, and utter wimps. I though that no many with any pride would even consider watching the show My Little Pony. That Said, I have also always had a personal opinion that I can't criticize anything unless I've tried it once. One day, During spring break, I found my 16 year old sister watching MLP. I found this unusual, considering that she is definitely not the most feminine of people I know. When I asked her why she was watching such a "stupid show," she responded by telling me that it actually didn't insult your intelligence, had compelling plots and characters, and superb animation. Being an animator myself, I had to see what she meant. At first, I saw the show, and came to the conclusion that it really wasn't too bad.
I decided that at that point, I would no longer criticize anyone that watched it too harshly. I still had a portion of me that still did not like the show. The story, however urged me to continue watching it. After the first few episodes, I really started to take an actual liking to the show. Eventually, I ended up finishing all the episodes before my sister.
What turned my life around was when I looked on line to see what there was. In Hindsight, that was probably a bad idea. Holy Sh*t, there is a ton of MLP stuff on the the internet. The My Little Pony fandom is one of the largest fandoms I've ever seen. It is also one of the most creative.
So to Make that long story short, I am now a Brony. Derpy is Best Pony!
The last Achievement that would require some explaining is related to the previous one.
After getting into the fandom, I started reading Fanfics. I came across one fic that I really liked, and looked online for a dramatic reading of it. I was surprised to find that there was nothing, even though the story was fairly well known. I then decided to do my own reading. I posted it onto my YouTube Channel. It has started growing since.
Today, I reached 30 subscribers, and thought to myself, *Achievement Unlocked!*
At that point and time, I realized, "Holy Sh*t, My RoosterTeeth Blog!"
And Here I am!
For those interested, here is a link to the playlist of the reading. I release a chapter every weekday.
