Brony Love, News of the Day!
Daft Pony by Fox-feathers
Wired online published an article on the trend of "Bronies", boys who love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. ... UM WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN THAT!?!? These fan boys aged 3-93 unabashedly fill the webspace ether with their adoration of the little rainbow ponies, and I could not be more excited.
One brony explained the love due to the “perfect storm of ’80s nostalgia and cultural irony.”
The only sad thing this article published was that creator Lauren Faust (past work on The Powerpuff Girls) finished her stint with MLP at the end of season 1, so hopefully the awesomeness can continue without her. The article also mentions how DeviantART has exploded with fanart deviations, and I decided to post some of my favs! Enjoy!

Though I've only featured one brony as these artists, there are plenty out on the web. See the Wired article for great Brony links!
Have a magical sparkle rainbow pony day!
