I've never been really invested in a fandom, tbh. I did looked at pony-related stuff (fan-art, fan-fic, fan-vids, fan-music, ect.) regularly, like I do for any other fandom I like. Even in the fandom I write the most about (One piece) I didn't published anything in months because I've been too busy with IRL stuff... But with the 5th season coming, I really want to work on the Discord story that have been floating in my mind since season 3...
Considering I only really started watching MLP in November last year, the hiatus didn't effect me in any way since I've been trying to watch Season 1-4 before 5 started. In fact I only started getting excited about Season 5 a few weeks ago when I'd finished the other seasons, so surviving didn't cross my mind
I bought a digital tablet and got working to make a name for myself with the digital brony community. Id say Im steadilly improving myself. Im also working on giving back to a community thats given me so much to begin with and hence Im working with a multitude of projects for things that might be good for the community. Im making a few projects for myself as well that I believe the community might like.
I ponified Big Hero 6, if that counts. I still have a couple more characters left to ponify, and I've made slow progress with my OCs. I've been getting back in to ponies a bit more, I was kinda neglegting them at the start of this year when I became extremely obsessed with Big Hero 6.
I was relatively active but not as much as when the previous season was still running/it just ended, but I guess school is to blame too. Although, for the past few months I've been more engrossed in Gravity Falls and Steven Universewhich most of its fans I am deeply disappointed with. But since one of them is on hiatus until August/July, and the other will be on hiatus soon, I think I'll be more on a pony roll this summer.
