Comic artist, reviewer, universal punching bag. Silver Quill goes by many titles and some of them are even complimentary! Beginning with fan comics in 2012, Silver Quill gained an audience that would eventually support his Youtube Channel to over 113,000 subscribers. He now writes reviews and editorials on Equestria Daily while producing his “After the Fact” review series. Babscon was his first Brony convention and he’s made an effort to attend every year since. And for the record, he was a hippogriff before it was cool!
KABOOM! The Fiery Prince of Brony Analysis is here to make jokes, fanboy over Celestia, and generally take ponies way too seriously! Starting his YouTube channel in 2010, he's grown to have one of the most popular Brony Review shows. He's also one of the main writers and managers of TF2 Analysis Anarchy. Also one of the founders of FOB Equestria, where all things military are ponified.
Greetings and Welcome Everyone. Though many know DRWolf through Reviews and Analysis of MLP, many others enjoy the ongoing "TF2 Analysis Anarchy" series as well as the long list of Dramatic Readings he's put together of MLP Fan Fictions from the community. He actually started a Youtube channel to work on his voice acting, but it's still a lot of fun to find what inspires him about MLP. The show and the fandom surrounding it has become rather intriguing. Quite unlike anything that he has come across before. Perhaps if you stay awhile, he can help you to find some inspiration too.
What more can be said about the man? Poet, artist, voice actor, athlete, curmudgeon, and all around teddy kitty. And if you believe all that, he has a bridge in Trotingham to sell you. Dustykatt is many things, he’s been in documentaries about the Brony phenomenon. Done acting in a student film, been in a Metallica music video for their latest album. Built custom motorcycles, made guitars with his bare hands, trained as a professional wrestler and competed in college athletics. All of this might make him very manly, but none of it makes him as proud as when he raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities around the world when he auctioneers at conventions. Or when he helps those affected by bullying as he once was as a child. You can see him in the ever popular Bronies React series on Youtube, voicing characters in various fandom animation projects as well as cooking on his own popular channel. Just search “Manliest Brony in the World.”
From comedic skits to demolition derbies, and song parodies to PMVs, ACRacebest is known for many things. He’s best known for his Bronies React series. With over 100,000 subscribers and appearances on national television, there's always a story to tell and a laugh to be had. Keep an eye out, you never know when he’ll have his camera out filming for his convention vlogs. Just don’t ask him about Zootopia. Please. We’re begging you.

He is there for YOUR entertainment!
