5th Anniversary of MLP:FiM

Well guys! We’ve made it. This weekend marks the 5th anniversary of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. What an absolutely wonderful milestone. Our fandom’s really came a long way in those years. The creativity among this community never fails to amaze me, with new artwork, music and more still created on a daily basis. What other fandom can get plushies out within a day of a new character appearing on the show, it’s really something to be proud of.

It’s easy for us bronies to forget how old MLP actually is. Last year was an incredible milestone for the entire franchise, thirty years. So i’d like to think, rather saying our fandom will last another five strong years, how about we go one more and say another thirty strong. Lets appreciate the old, the new and not yet here. There’s much to look forward to in the coming years, such as Season 6, the 4th Equestria Girls movie and of course the big 2017 movie.

Friendship Report: Old Friends

Dear Readers,

We've all lost friends over time, some we leave, some leave us, and some were just friends because we saw them five days a week. Sometimes we find ourselves looking back on these old friends and wondering how different it'd be if we were still with them. Sometimes, much like Twilight did, we find these old friends and reconcile with them, which is actually what I did a few months ago.

Friendship Report: Shining

Dear Readers,

In case you haven't noticed, I have spent the last month or so not posting on this. There are two reasons for this, one, I've been busy sorting out my life (still no success there), and two, The episodes have been very hard to write about. I for one loved the hundredth episode special, even though they changed Derpy's voice, I also liked the latest episode, but I will be honest, I wasn't much for Princess Spike, nor am I much for the majority of Spike episodes.

Friendship Report: Expectations

Dear readers,

As some of you have already come to terms with, not everything is quite as beautiful as we imagine. Take London for example, most of us expect it to be a posh place full of rich fold who have their chauffeurs drive them around in gilt Rolls Royces. It's true there are a few of those, but it's mostly full of chavs and tourists.

Friendship Report: The Smooze

Dear Readers,

I should probably do a report on the jealousy shown in the last episode, but I'm much more interested in the adorable creature known as The Smooze. We all have a friend like him, one who eats everything, who leaves a mess, who secretes a weird green goo, and who we wish we could lock up in a storeroom for the evening. No matter how distasteful this friend may be, it never seems right to leave him (or her) behind, and so they have to come with us where ever we go, because it wouldn't seem right not to.

Friendship Report: Clown?

Dear Readers,

Although I found the latest episode quite entertaining, I found the message to be a bit unclear. I think it was supposed to be something about blessings in disguise, but that didn't sit right with me. To me the message seemed more along the lines of "Fake it 'til you make it." Yes, I did get that line from Fallout 3.

Friendship Report: Goodbyes

Dear Readers,

In the last episode of My Little Pony, poor Rainbow Dash was struggling to say goodbye to her adorable pet tortoise: Tank. We all know how hard some goodbyes can be, even if you're going to see whoever it is the next day. Sometimes you just don't want people to leave you, or you don't want to leave them. Either way, this theme brought on an episode filled with references and hilarity.

Sit back, put on your See You Jimmy Hat and crack open a fresh can of Irn Bru, we’ve got a convention to announce!

BronyScot will be returning to Edinburgh’s Grosvenor Hilton Hotel on Saturday 21 November 2015.

The BronyScot Team have been working hard to make sure 2015 is better than ever! We will have more space, with every nook booked and a team brimming with original ideas.

BronyScot, as ever, is all about the fandom. 2015 will see the return of some of our favourite performers from 2014 - with some surprises thrown in!

We’re able to announce the return of Scandinavia's top export Injustrial, the voice-shifting John Willow and unmistakable artwork from Mad Munchkin and Twigileia. If that didn’t satisfy you, we can throw in the broad-ranging skills of Sketchy Sounds and street beat icon One Wing Pegasus.

If that raft load of talent wasn’t enough, The BronyScot team can announce the return of Rock Nessie. We are putting the finishing touches on our exact plans with the event, but we will let you know as soon as these are firmed up.

Tickets are on sale soon so get ready to saddle up and hit the Highlands.

We’re making sure our new website is perfect. Check back during the week when it’ll be ready and full of everything you’ll need to know about the convention. Found at or

Friendship Report: Worries

Dear Readers,

In the last episode of My Little Pony, poor Apple Bloom was worrying about what would happen if she got a cutie mark she didn't like. I for one wasn't much for that episode, but it did have it's moments nonetheless. I think she shouldn't have woken up from the first dream and instead actually fight to get her pest pony cutie mark back in order to save Equestria (or at least Ponyville). But that wasn't the case, and the message was different.

Friendship Report: Not All Houses Are Homes

Dear Readers,

In the latest episode of My Little Pony, we had Princess Twilight avoiding her home because it didn't feel like a home. Anyone else been there? I have, thankfully I was able to solve that problem about 5 years ago. Admittedly, my solution wasn't really the best, but it worked for me. So here's a little story about a young lad who moved to Birmingham, a young lad that totally wasn't me.

Friendship Report: Cutie Marks

Dear Readers,

I hope everyone has enjoyed the season premiere, I sure did. It featured a new song, which I loved, some hilarious new characters, and a message which really spoke to me. Unfortunately, that message will just bring about a large rant from me, purely because of my views on the subject. Equality to me is a big taboo.

Friendship Report: Happy Easter and Season 5

Dear Readers,

As a lot of you know, today is Good Friday, so Happy Easter all those who celebrate it. Slightly more importantly, at least for me, tomorrow is when then next season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic begins. This may bring a slight change to my Friendship Reports, as I plan on taking the lessons learned at the end of the episodes, and trying to relate them to my life. That is of course, if the episodes continue to have a little Friendship report at the end of them.

Friendship Report: Impulse Buys

Dear Readers,

Have you ever done something by impulse that turned out to be a much better idea than you had originally expected? I have,in fact it was a recent impulse buy of mine that turned out to be a very good idea. I had been watching a lot of videos on YouTube from a user called Rob Scallon, and he likes to play 8-string guitar, and so I decided to buy my own 8-string.

Friendship Report: Spring is Here!

Dear Readers,

So last Sunday I was fortunate enough to catch Papa Roach perform at the Manchester Academy along with Coldrain, who I had never heard of, and also The One Hundred, who I had also never heard of. I didn't originally know about the two opening acts, I just thought it was going to be a Papa Roach gig, but nobody tells me anything. I'm not complaining, it meant there was more Nu Metal for me to bounce around to.

Friendship Report: The DJ

Dear Readers,

I'm quite happy to say that I was fortunate enough to find two Rush albums on half price at HMV earlier, and so instead of only buying one like I intended, I bought both of them. However, I'm not happy to say that I was in a night club last night that featured the worst DJ imaginable, she didn't know how to equalize, and she had no clue what she was supposed to be playing.

Friendship Report: Addictions

Dear Readers,

For some strange reason I thought it would be a good idea to resubscribe to World of Warcraft, and now I've rekindled that old addiction of mine. So before I plunge myself back into the magical world of Azeroth, I thought I'd better get a quick post up, especially since I didn't leave myself enough time to post yesterday.

Friendship Report: Too Much Stuff

Dear Readers,

I may not live in the cleanest of houses, and that doesn't really bother me. I don't exactly live in a cluttered house either, I simply just have too much stuff in my room, and not much space. The sad part is I've cut down on clutter by approximately 60% and I still have too much. I find it amazing, how could I live with all that junk in my room? So I want to talk about stuff in the literal sense for a change.

Friendship Report: The Interview and some Lovey Dovey Stuff!

Dear Readers,

As I believe I mentioned in my post last week, I had my interview for the army today. It was the first job interview I have ever done, and as one can expect, I was dreading it. Thankfully it all went quite well, and my terror quickly dispersed once the interview actually started. On the other side tomorrow is Hearts and Hooves Day!

Friendship Report: A Little Push

Dear Readers,

This week I have had a lot of exposure to the army. A large group of them came into the college and gave a presentation to those of us who take sport and public services (which also included the army prep course). That was probably the best thing that could have happened to me, for it helped me put myself back on track.

Friendship Report: Eighteen

Dear Readers,

As you can probably tell, it was someone's eighteenth birthday this week. It was my good friend Nathan's, but his birthday wasn't the only one this week, on Monday my mother turned 55, and on Tuesday my oldest brother turned 27. There is also another eighteenth coming up on Sunday, but thankfully, I'm not invited to Ash's party, I say thankfully because the celebrations for Nathan's party haven't finished yet, and I've already been killed off by those.

Friendship Report: Modern Technology

Dear Readers,

If any of you read my personal blog, you may know that I now have a smartphone, I don't know why I have one, but it was given to me by Nathan's dad, so I'm not going to complain. It's about four years out of date, so it's nothing too fancy, and for those of you who are wondering it's a HTC Desire S, and no, I don't know if HTC are actually a good brand or not, because I've only known of the existence of HTC for six days now.

Friendship Report: Normaility

Dear Readers,

I hope you have been enjoying your return to normality. I for one have, but I'm not liking how all the Valentines Day products have crept into shops over a month before Valentines Day. I've got nothing against Valentines Day, I actually quite enjoy it, and I find it cute, but all that is besides the point, for this post isn't about Valentines Day, but about normality.

Friendship Report: Nightmare!

Dear Readers,

I'd like to start off by saying that the title is only slightly misleading, and also gives way to a very anticlimactic post. Anyway, six days into the new year, one of my worst nightmares became reality. The sad part about this is that it truly has been a strange fear of mine for quite some time now, and it's finally happened.

Friendship Report: The Waiting Game!

Dear Readers,

I hope you all feel well after what was probably a really good party, those of you who didn't party I hope you enjoyed your sleep, or whatever it was you were doing. Anyway, we are now in 2015, so do try and remember that when those of you who attend school or college return to it. Anyway, there will be quite a few exciting things to come out of 2015.
