It’s sunk in that the amazing second season of MLP:FiM is over, and it’ll be months before the show is back on the air. It sucked going without ponies last week, much less going without them for an extended period.
To be fair, I’m hardly “without them.” There are 52 episodes to rewatch endlessly and a constant stream of Equestria Daily stuff to follow (though I’ve realized that keeping up with EQD is difficult if you spend all day doing anything else, such as playing Tera for twenty hours.)
I’ve already watched ponies more devoutly than almost anything before. Even though I’ve been watching currently-running anime for five years, I’ve never managed to keep up with one show throughout its run for as long as I have MLP. (I think 7 eps is the previous record for how long I’ve watched a show every week. Ponies breaks it with 9.)
I’d begun to enjoy the rhythm of waking up early on Saturday, hanging out in the BronyTV stream, then waking up my brothers and watching the new episodes in the living room on the 72-inch. It was starting to become the most consistent element in my life (lol).
I feel, with this, that my summer has already begun. A summer of rhythmic change, which will involve playing lots of video games (namely Tera online), and most likely getting a job.
And ponies. Of course. Lots of ponies. Right here.
