Well, Tara Strong is awesome.

A mother’s well-timed Facebook comment meant the difference between disappointment and happiness for her brony son with disabilities.

Fifteen-year-old Dragon, who goes by his middle name, was looking forward to meeting My Little Pony voice actress Tara Strong at the Knoxville Comic and Anime Show. But when Strong canceled her appearance, his mother, Rebecca Andrews, wasn’t sure what to do.

On May 31, she wrote on the convention’s cancellation announcement on Facebook:

“Thanks for posting. Just wish she'd cancelled before I paid for the vip pass. Now I have to figure out how to tell my disabled son he won't be meeting Twilight. :(

Little did she know that Strong herself was reading the post. Strong quickly contacted Andrews to arrange a phone call with Dragon. In a follow-up posted on the convention’s Facebook page and on a LiveJournal’s EquestriaMLP, Andrews posted some of the highlights:

Mockery of ideas you don't comprehend or understand is the surest mark of unintelligence.

Even the worst union is better than the best Walmart.

Tara Strong was already awesome. This brings her more to like, goddess level.

And I'm way too girly for manly tears. I bawled like a baby reading that.

Because Faust said so, ham.  That's enough.

Specifically, it was because they only wanted mostly positive sibling portrayals (Oh, Rarity!), and they thought that RD would not be a positive older sister role model. Seriously.

Pizza Hut is my favourite restaurant forever.

FOREVER~!

His rainbows around like a dove
"Always I'll be with you
And then make-believe with you
Harmony, Harmony, oh love"

Suddenly, I don't mind our only decent pizza place being Pizza Hut.  Nice one, Tai!

I'd be worried that if I wrote that down, they'd go "Princess who-the-fuck?" and leave me un-Luna'd.

At least they wouldn't send you to the sun, e13.

This is why I try to stay on BOTH of their good sides...

The only reason I have any idea what the screencap portion says is the context of the resulting pizza box. The text is too damn small. (It is like the inverse of the rent.)

Nom:  All you need to do to expand the size of images and text is to hold down ctrl (on a windows machine) and scroll up on your scroll wheel.  To get it back where it was, just do the same and scroll down.

Which just zooms in on an already-too-small resolution picture. Now it is just a blob of over anti-aliased pixels.
