I think that exchange at the end of “The Last Roundup” will apply perfectly.:
Twilight: Applejack, you’re not a failure.
Rainbow: And we’re your friends. We don’t care if you came in fiftieth place. You’re still number one in our books.
Applejack: So… you’re not upset or disappointed?
Twilight, Rainbow, and Fluttershy: (shaking heads negatively)
Applejack: But what about the mayor? I don’t think I can face her and tell her I didn’t get the money to fix the broken roof.
Fluttershy: Applejack, we can always find a way to fix that hole in the roof, but if you don’t come back, we’ll never be able to fix the hole in our hearts.
Rainbow: (shedding single tear while Fluttershy and Twilight nuzzle Applejack, then shaking head quickly) Darn it!! (folding forelegs grumpily) Now you got me acting all sappy!
I have attempted to think back to every project I ever undertook either for myself or at my school in the past several years, and I feel as though I have tapped into a source of energy unlike anything I remember even during those past projects. If it helps, I typically prefer to explain whatever I’m up to, and in this case, I’m certain about where I want to start. Even now, certain anecdotes are enough to make my jaw drop whenever I ponder them, and I can only wonder how far these ponies will go as 2013 progresses.
Babylon 5, Codename: Kids Next Door, 24, and now, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am many things at once, and many people might have different opinions about little, old me. If freedom is my main idea, then harmony, individuality, and modernization are the three attributes I now sense and track. Those three attributes and that idea combined to make the United States of America a great global superpower and Pearlshipping and Wishfulshipping great Pokémon couples, and now, they've combined to make those four shows truly great television programs to me. I will enjoy enthusiastically supporting the Equestrian ponies' adventures for peace, for humankind, for the future.
