"It's been a week for anniversaries, hasn't it? To celebrate the 10th anniversary of MLP:FIM, I decided to make another drawing like I have been doing since 2017. It's another gathering of characters with my OC, though we do have 2 new faces joining in. It's really hard to believe it's been a decade. I was still in middle school when it premiered (specifically the 8th grade), and didn't officially start watching the show until 2014, and partake in fandom activities until roughly a year later. It was a very bumpy road, and I will admit the fandom hasn't exactly been the best in recent years, but I have met some amazing people and even ones I would consider close friends. We were all united over a silly little cartoon about taking horses and other magical creatures meant to sell toys, but we turned it into an experience unlike any other. Who knows what the future holds? Maybe G5 will continue the magic, but we'll have to see. Until then, happy 10th birthday, MLP:FIM! It's been quite the ride."
