All this can easily be explained with my “Fluttershy on the outside, Pinkie Pie on the inside” type of personality. At first, I didn’t really feel like a member of this community, just like I don’t when I go to a new school or sit on a bus with a bunch of strangers. I didn’t want to really get to know anyone, I didn’t want to talk about myself beyond what was necessary, I didn’t want any of that, just the pony discussion that I dropped in on every so often. I got like 4 pages of wall posts total in my first few months here.
However, once you guise started mentioning me in your posts, and including me is when I started to feel at home at here. That’s when I realized such a great place KYM was, so different from all those other communities. Every one of you users, makes this site what it is. It sounds trite, but I really do mean it. And so I opened up.
I ain’t much of a nerd, actually. I’ll have you know I was the high school valedictorian, head cheerleader, and an active participant within the community, all while maintaining a perfect 5.0 GPA and oh god that makes me a nerd doesn’t it.
I’m popular now, but these things usually come in bursts, you know.
