My parents found out I was a Brony when I wanted to go to a convention in Orlando, Florida.
Well, technically, my dad had known, he just thought I was just screwing with him, though. He just found out I was serious when I wanted to go to MLPCon
I thought my mother was okay with it, since she had asked me about the con I wanted to go to February 29. Yes, 2012 is a leap year. I brought up the website on my phone, she glanced at it, and didn’t say anything.
The next day, March 1st (Today, as of the date I write this), I look at the ticket prices. I remember my mom asked about them last night, but I had just told her that the ticket prices would be posted in march. So, I decided to go tell her that the prices were posted and that I planned on getting the $30 General Admission.
After, She asked again what kind of convention it is, And I brought up the website on the computer.
She was astonished. “MY Little PONY?!” She said. “You buy My Little PONIES?!”
And at that point, I kept my cool, make it seem like she was seriously out of the loop. “Yeah,” I said. “How is this new news to you?”
At that point, I was close to burting out laughing infront of her.
But no. Using the training I had learned from listening to select songs with Mic the Microphone on vocals, I was able to keep my pokerface.
And so I brought up the purchase of two shirts from welovefine.com. A Vinyl Scratch shirt, and a Great And powerful Trixie shirt. “You know those shirts I got a while back? Yeah.” I said, knowing she’d know what I was talking about.
At that point, I think I broke her, as she just went quiet as she looked at me. And then she asked me “So, How much are the tickets?”
