Pretty sweet story! It's interesting, I came on Cheezeburger because of Rage comics and I didn't have any friends here. Then I became brony and - BOOM! My story is slightly different - some of my friend were bronies. I knew they watch it, but I wasn't hater, I just though: "Okay, little weird, but why not". Then, I saw one girl dressed like Rainbow Dash and I said: "Well, I will definitely watch it!", but I wasn't. Then one friend sent YouTube link with Read It and Weep episode. So I though: "Well, why not.". After episode I decided to watch first two episodes, to know what's going on there. And I couldn't stop. I felt little weird, but I was feeling very good inside. What were your first feelings?
Unfortunately it's not a very clear picture, I took it with my old phone, I guess he stopped coming to class because I didn't see him again. I just got into the Brony fandom this past summer. I had heard about it before and a friend showed it to me.
And knowing the brony fandom, I'm sure there are a couple of weird people there. My roommate, best friend, and girlfriend know about it but yeah, I don't mention it too much. I kinda hope I get season 1 for Christmas though.
