So some of you may still be wondering who this Zeta character is and how I got involved in this. Well the story could originate as far back as August 14th, 2003. The day I moved from Olathe, Kansas to Virginia Beach, Virginia. The reasoning was simply my father wanted a change of scenery. We had vacationed there the year prior and had a blast. Though the momment we showed up to our new house, and the previous owners still hadn’t fully moved out. I knew it was all down hill from there.
School had started before I left Kansas, but had yet to start in Virginia. So I was enjoying a little vacation before school. Not knowing that it’d be awhile before I’d feel that relaxed again. School started the first Tuesday of September. I was in the 4th grade, and had no fear of making new friends, because making friends had always come so naturally back in Kansas. I went to my first class and the first thing my teacher had said to the class was, “Just to let ya’ll know, I don’t want to be your friend. I have my own friends, you have yours.” Oh boy, here we go.
From that point on I didn’t really have any friends. I was new, and some kids took this as an opportunity to pick on me, and everyone else kinda took that as I must be weird or something. So needless to say after many failed attempts to gain some friends in the real world I ventured into the virtual world. Before I’d moved you almost never caught me on the computer. I was always outside with friends. Which I didn’t have so I tried making friends in the virtual world. Mostly by playing games like runescape and MapleStory. I have made some good friends from there, but how I got involved in the Brony community was through a forum of a flash crew from Newgrounds.
The flash animation crew is called the Lock Legion a spin off of the Clock Crew. If you happen to have me on Skype you’d notice my username has my lock name. So in January of 2011 they announced a competition of which was the better show Adventure Time or MLP:FiM. Id seen Adventure Time, but not MLP. So I found out. I watched the first 6 episodes of season 1 and was hooked. Shortly thereafter I began trying to find out if there were others around who liked the show. Found out about BronyCon and immediately got involves. Where I met several of the friends I have today. Also thanks to everything that happened at BronyCon that year I met Forest shortly after.
Now, I’ve got tons of friends, work for BronyCon, Midwest Brony Fest KC, Cloudsdale Congress, and I’m producing a show for EFN. Now what’s your story?
