Squeak Anon: Ah, I remember when [the word "brony"] was invented, I was in that thread. Oh how the connotation has changed.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): I fracking love you, Sqeak.
Hamish Boyle: Daymn, you is old.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): I fracking love you.
Hamish Boyle: You is, like, two years old.
Neil Rainbow Dash Drawponies: Wait ... what? Please tell this story
Squeak Anon: I'm as old as pony itself.
Squeak Anon: You'd best take heed whippersnappers
Ned (needthistool/askireet): Regale us with the stories of old, Squeak!!!
Hamish Boyle: Share the tale of the dawn.
Hamish Boyle: The dawn of pony.
Squeak Anon: Well, there was this channel called the hub.
Squeak Anon: It was going to take the slot of Discovery Kids on the Television box.
Squeak Anon: There were ads everwhere.
Squeak Anon: And with these ads, came a picture of a rainbow pegasus.
Squeak Anon: At first we all thought 'Oh just another terrible remake'
Squeak Anon: But we all really liked Batman Beyond, so we tuned into the preimre of the station, live on internet forms everywhere.
Squeak Anon: And we saw the first episode.
Squeak Anon: And wanted mre.
Squeak Anon: The end.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): What does that have to do with batman, Squeak?
Ned (needthistool/askireet): Like, it was a remake so you gave FiM a shot?
Squeak Anon: Nope, Batman Beyond was back on the air because of the hub.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): Was it reruns, Squeak?
Squeak Anon: That's why most people were excited.
Squeak Anon: Eyup, just the reruns.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): Damn.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): Yeah. I thought so.
Squeak Anon: it hadn't aired anywhere for like a decade.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): If they made more of that show I'd be pumped.
Ned (needthistool/askireet): We need more futurepunk shit on the air.
Squeak Anon: Since, we were already on the channel, we stayed an the rest was history.
Squeak Anon: So Batman Beyond created bronies.
Ben Ward (Xigger): .......no?
Ned (needthistool/askireet): OMFG. I love you.
Squeak Anon: Okay, I'm being silly. It probably still would've taken off without that.
Squeak Anon: But it helped!
