Special Guests

Dustykatt

Dustykatt – The Man, the Myth……… Legend? Probably not, you see he is just a goofball doing his thing and taking people along for the crazy ride that is his life. Over the years of this wild Brony fandom, he's been an original member of Bronies React, played the Australian in the TF2 Analysis Anarchy series, voice acted as Thatch in the Thatch and Dial YouTube series alongside Mandopony as well as parts in the East Corp productions of Fallout Equestria. Luximus also recruited him to play a hot dog vendor in her animation series Allister and Melody. His Voice acting roles lead to Book narration and also on camera opportunities. Being cast in a Metallica music video and playing a heavy in a student film out of San Francisco. He is most proud of his Livestream show “Stay Brony My Friends” which over the years interviewed many people in the fandom as well as many who worked on My Little pony: Friendship is Magic directly, raising over 50,000 dollars for charity during its run. His passion for music led him to begin guitar building, starting with a replica of Sunset Shimmer's guitar from Rainbow Rocks. He has built many to date, more in the Cigar Box variety. Basing the themes of each guitar he builds in the MLP world. He now travels to conventions to entertain on stage during such panels as Bronies React, Hooves line is it anyway and Script readings. Leading VIP panels as well as Charity Auction duties that he shares whenever he can with his good pal Foalpapers.

Foal Papers

Foaly can't quite believe that they've now been a fan of candy-colored magical ponies for over a decade, but somehow it has indeed been that long since 2011 – and what an incredible and joyful ten years! In that time, Foaly has presented on the links between MLP:FiM and Greek mythology at academic conferences and fan conventions around the world; they've moderated panels with a broad swath of the Powers That Be of the franchise; they've co-hosted a plethora of charity auctions in support of excellent causes alongside Dustykatt and other fabulous folks; and they've run around a lot in an unspecified and befuddled rush. Online, they've participated in a variety of livestreams and shows, helped actively shape the fan community on Twitter, and tracked the fandom’s charity and convention undertakings with their beloved spreadsheets. Foaly enjoys tea and is uncomfortable yet vaguely amused describing themself in the third person. You can usually find them tweeting too much over on @foalpapers. Be excellent to each other.

Silver Quill

Surveying the scene in 2012, Silver Quill didn't become a full-on fan of the show until he saw the level of creativity it inspired. Beginning with comics before launching a YouTube channel, he has gained a following and become a contributing figure on Equestria Daily, Bronies React, the MBS Show, and his own "After the Fact" series. Combining classical themes, modern-day culture, and slapstick, Silver Quill is one of the premier reviewers and a familiar face in the convention scene.

The Illustrious Q

In March of 2011, a fairly quiet Brony known as The Illustrious Q watched his first brand new episode of MLP: Over a Barrel. This was of course after binging the entire first season up to that point. While he was, at the time, content to let other more more interested/energetic people make their mark in the fandom something was about to happen which would change everything. It wasn't the Fire Nation attacking, but IDW Publishing announcing a new My Little Pony Comic Series at SDCC 2012 had arguably as much of an impact on him. Minus the being frozen in ice for a century bit. Never one for half measures, The Illustrious Q swore an oath to collect every single MLP comic produced by IDW on that fateful day. Little did he realize that his quest for perfection would eventually lead him to Equestria Daily as their resident IDW MLP Comic Expert, MLP convention reporter, and chief interviewer!

Flutterpriest

Flutterpriest, in addition to being a cohost of MLP interview podcast 'The Barcast', gained recognition as a fanfiction author for his vast selection of Human in Equestria stories, award-winning contest entries, and community-sized collaborations and contests. Some of his most acclaimed works include 'Dash Tries to Win Your Heart', 'Feathers', and 'Office Love'. He hides himself deep in the heartland of America, where his doggo frequently interrupts podcasts for scritches.

Vivid Syntax

With a flair for the dramatic and a love of foreshadowing, Cody "Vivid Syntax" Miller is a fanfic author, convention runner, and statistician hailing from Minnesota. He's penned everything from one-tweet microfictions to one-shot comedies to 400,000-word dramatic romances, and he's had the honor of writing six (and counting!) scripts for MLP conventions across the Midwest. At EFNW 2019, he was a judge and editor for SCRIPTfest as well as a prolific panel participant, and this year, he's thrilled to bring even more energy to the writing track. Hilarious workshops! Thought-provoking discussions! And a fun-filled weekend of writing that's sure to go down as the greatest Seattle has ever seen! ...I did warn you about the flair for the dramatic, didn't I?

Horizon

Horizon, as one of the founding members of the Royal Canterlot Library, has helped shine a spotlight on authors of high-quality MLP fanfics for over six years.
