I know this is long, but here we go.
I don't have any brony friends in my friend circle irl, so I've come to BronyCon by myself twice now and all I can say is how amazingly friendly everyone is. The feeling of just getting to talk to people about ponies is great. Everyone just getting along and having fun.
Bronypalooza is probably my favorite part of BronyCon. During it I took part in the dance circle and met some awesome people. I really regret not getting their names. I suck at social interaction. If they are reading this, I was the blue and black haired guy who did "the worm" a few times.
After they announced that next year will be the last at Closing Ceremonies, I was crushed. I'm a 20 year old guy, but I was crying like a toddler after that. When I walked out to the lobby, tears still in my eyes, I saw one of the most amazing and emotional things I've ever experienced. Everyone was comforting each other. Giving hugs to everyone. Random strangers who cared enough to comfort those in need. I saw one of the guys I met during Bronypalooza probably more distraught than I was in the lobby. Me and several other people went over and just embraced him and comforted him. One of them said that this year was his first convention and he was heartbroken that next year will be his last. I broke down and bawled my eyes out during those last few minutes of the convention. After that, I was standing crying and some random person walked up to me and embraced me to cheer me up as well. It was so heart warming to see so much love and kindness in one place. I can't even put into words how touching it was. Those last moments of the con will stick with me for the rest of my life and have shown me the true heart of this fandom. It showed me that the Fandom isn't over with the ending of BronyCon. It will live on in the friendship and kindness that we show each other everyday, irl or online. It will live on in the art that is created everyday, be it drawings, music, or stories. It will never fully fade away. I know it sounds cliche, but Friendship truly is Magic.
Thank you BronyCon and thank you Brony Community for making the last few years amazing. Here's to making next year the greatest there has ever been!
