March 17, 2015 – Every hit TV show will have its own fan base. The same goes with My Little Pony. Although it was mainly intended for little girls, its latest reboot has given rise to an unprecedented fandom: the Bronies.
The Bronies are very unique among other fan bases because they consist of adult men who are typically fond of watching a show that is focusing on a demographic of little girls. The Bronies have definitely shocked most parts of the world and that shock came with a lot of cynicism and criticism.
But for the Bronies, their fandom was a blessing as evidenced by a computer science student who got his big break with the help of the Bronies.
Canadian Peter Deltchev is a computer science student. Besides that, he is also a dedicated Brony. In fact, he is an integral member of the Brony fandom in Canada. What’s remarkable about Peter is that most of his successes can all be attributed to his involvement with the Brony community.
He says that the opportunities that came knocking on his door are all thanks to the Bronies because through them, he was able to deploy his talents.
Peter Deltchev is also the founder of the Ponyverse, a so-called ‘super community’ of different My Little Pony fan sites.
Although he considers himself a person who works in the background, he has contributed a lot to the Brony cause. He helps run BronyCAN, the biggest Brony convention of Canada, and thanks to him, they have a huge forum which has about 30,000 members. Deltchev is also a founder of a number of fan sites related to My Little Pony.
Deltchev says that many people think that Bronies are typically man-children who don’t have a purpose in their lives. They think that Bronies are miserable men who find relief with cartoons for girls.
But he says that he is a living proof that Bronies are not what they’re misconceived to be although he did not deny that there were members like that. He says that he is one of those who had their careers launched thanks to the Brony fandom.
