Where Are The Now? The Master List, and How YOU can help by


Since the fandom began, there have been many names and faces that have come and gone. Some with dramatic exits, others who have vanished without a trace, and some who just changed their name and were generally lost track of by the fandom at large.
With the announcement that 2019 marks the final year of BronyCon and the knowlege that 2020 may very well mark the end of Friendship is Magic as we know it, Horse News is attempting an investigation, into the fates and futures of the fans that have fallen off the radar, before it's too late.

We asked you, our readers, to make suggestions of who you would like to be updated on from wayback, and you delivered, big time.

We have compiled a list, in no particular order, of the screen-names that people want to know about, and have attached it below.

Many of these names are not "gone" by any means, but have simply stopped producing much in the way of pony-related content in recent months and years.

We make no guarantee that we will be able to provide conclusive, or satisfying answers to all of these names, but we will put all of our collective investigation skills to work to do our best.

How YOU can help:

If you have any personal leads, information, or contact details for any of these names, please leave either a comment, Twitter DM, or email us at horsenewsmlp@gmail.com

You can also ask to be added to the Horse News Discord chat if you wish.

Together, we can bring closure to some of the mysteries of the old fandom, for better or worse.



Here's the list that you wanted to see, and some of the statuses of our investigations. If you would like to add to this list, please leave information in comments.

  1. SimGretina's still active. He stopped doing pony music and turned to electro-swing and other stuff. https://www.youtube.com/user/SimGretina

    Jenny Nicholson from Sherclop Pones does Star Wars analysis videos on her channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/JennyENicholson

    And ROBCakeran, really? c.c He's still active in the fandom, guys, c'mon, I was at a convention with him like two weeks ago.

    1. These are literally just the suggestions that people sent us.
      Many of them are not "missing" in the slightest, but we may still do a "what are they up to?" update

    2. Well , some got c&ds due to the fact that hasbro shut some down and others moved to other places , You can ask some from derpibooru for this info

      Delete
    3. On that note CienmaQuestria is still up despite it getting a C&D over 3 years ago. They seem to have a discussion show called Equine Episode Examination and still streams other content outside of pony.

      Delete
  2. I sponsored the My Little Porny film and sent a few emails back and forth with Cupcake who played Pinkie in that dire abomination. You might be able to contact her via http://harleesyn.tumblr.com/ if she still uses it.

  4. Good news! MisterDavie is still animating on commission, though it would seem very quietly. His most recent: https://youtu.be/Q5wkxOVrfEs

    1. So maybe there's still hope we'll get Rainbow Factory HD?

      Also was it ever confirmed if it was Hasbro that got his stuff yanked or someone impersonating them?

      Delete
  5. I have read about it, but Sprocket and Lavender confirmed to me that Peak Freak was forced to delete his stuff by his record label. No info what is his non-pony handle, though. If anyone knows that, it would be good to add it.

  6. Bronyfied is still active online under the name "Nirre".
    He does videogame music covers on this channel:

  7. Some others I can think of:

    RainShadow - Still active uploading bgm from the show

    Foozogz - Appears to still be active occasionally online.

  8. I've seen pokehidden on e621 every once in a while, so he's still drawing.

    Dawnsomewhere became an animator and comic artist all while starting a family!

    MysteryBen27 is animating videos with Mystery Skulls, and that generated it's own fandom.

    1. pokehidden goes by pokefound now apparently

  9. Swagberg is still somewhat active as a hip-hop artist. His bandcamp page is ziegler.bandcamp.com . Not much in the way of new releases since 2015, but his facebook page (Link found in the page above) got a few updates this year.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh man, I missed a call to action about making a list, I would've liked to know where the BeatleBronies have been for a while, they just uploaded some old convention footage but no music in forever.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. BRONYMIKE, hit me up on discord or wherever you can find me, it's been forever.

      As for the Beatle Bronies, lets just say they might have an "Active" next to their names soon (if they were on this list asdf).

      As for individual members:
      P1K - Stayed in the fandom making music
      qD - pursued his own music
      ED - pursued his own music
      Hergest Ridge, Osoth, and DreamHuk dropped off the face of the earth.

  11. Tirarawhy is still making shit. A simple Google search could have told you that.
    Don't for get to donate to their Pateron.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Isn't Tiarawhy at least tangentially tied to spookitty and the Pony Tale Adventures project?

      Delete
  12. DrawPonies is alive as ArtWork-Tee nowadays (on dA), but they dropped trac-... drawing colorful micro equines. They comment and are online everyday.

    Veggie55 disappeared from DeviantArt, which was his main base of operation, deactivating the account, and moved to YT at Veggie449, but is not too active.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Dawnsomewhere is is still very active; Though through youtube algorithms and plateauing view counts, Greg has changed vehicles and is wrighting comics, three at the moment. Steb boy hotdog, which he draws. Simiantelligent, drawn by Pencils. And Kit's Orphanage, drawn by Copy(I'm sure that's her handle).

    ReplyDelete
  14. Dawnsomewhere was supposed to be working on the Nepotism Adventure Series, effectively a sort of finale for MAS/RDP before moving on to other things, but Greg appears to have lost interest. No surprise there as he vocally admitted his nose diving interest in MLP and creating pony related content.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Does anyone ever know what happened to AskPaletteSwap? She was a good friend, but just COMPLETELY dropped off the earth back in 2016, not a peep since, even under non-pony username or content.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Brony Network is not technically dead, it's just been rebranded to [BN]. You can still access the stream for pony here: https://cytu.be/r/bntheater

    The Discord group explains the situation a little more.

  18. So I dug through my heaping pile of all things pony and I've got quite a handful of peeps to add to the list who either haven't been mentioned yet or not currently listed.

    I'm mainly interested in finding out what happened to the following folk: oodorato2, Aftermath, FraGmenTd, Echelon, Infinity Dash, StormWolf, LookoutLondon, olibacon, PhonyBrony, Psycosis, PWaaMLPfim (Jenna Artemis), shiropoint, ThatSonofAMitch, TheSaltlakrits, TheSlutfox, TripleBlueShell, and Underpony.

    Pretty much all those I listed above haven't been active in a few years or have deleted their channels so it would be nice to have some light shed on what's going on with them.

    Also, even though she's on the list already, I too would love to know what happened to NotACleverPony, as her music served as a gateway for me when I was joining the fandom.

    I was gonna list some extras but I feel I've already provided more than enough for thought. May post them later as things progress.

    1. Not that this matters much, but I'm still around... I pretty much just lurk these days though. Unfortunately I just don't have nearly as much free time as I used to. Back when I was in college (and while unemployed for a while after...) I had tons of free time to dedicate to pony stuff. But in 2014 I started my first full time 9-5 office job and have been working full time ever since, and I now have even more IRL responsibilities and stuff, so I sadly just don't have much if any time for MLP stuff anymore. I'd still *like* do to Pony related stuff. But it's very difficult to make it a priority these days.

      As for NotACleverPony, there used to be a detailed goodbye post on NotACleverPony's deviantart page, but it looks like that account has been deactivated. There's most likely a screenshot or something somewhere.

      Personally I don't plan on taking down my uploads or deleting my deviant art stuff, etc. It annoys me when other people do that, and I feel like it's kind of disrespectful to the fans, but I suppose people have their reasons for doing so.

    2. Hey, I'm just glad to hear you're still alive and doing well. Life does take priority after all though so I understand that. Your work undoubtedly helped a lot of folk out with their videos back in the day. Heck even giving people instrumentals and things from songs we loved in the show so thank you for all that and for keeping it up on your channel to this day.

      Delete
  19. Yeah dude Oodorato2, great suggestion, isn't he Japanese?

    1. Judging by his video titles I would assume so, he didn't really have a social presence so his abrupt disappearance has me wondering.

      Delete
    2. Looks like he last uploaded in January on his niconico page. The last few songs are not pony related.

  24. Great article and interesting, thank you for sharing.

  25. What about the people who did Dusk's Dawn?
    Makes me wonder what happen to the people who got involve in it?

    Also, remember JennaBunVA? All I remember her is that the last time of her existence, she voice LUNA on Dinkey's Destiny(The most wasted animation). After that she suddenly disappear. like a snap with a finger and *Poof* GONE.

  27. Ashley Coulter AKA Buttercup Saiyan AKA ignominious (@BCSart) AKA watercolorheart AKA whatever she's calling herself this week.

    I know she's had troubles, not really into MLP much any more (last pony thing she did was over a year ago, of course it was a porn animation), seems to be concentrating on SFW art and indie game development now.

    Would be cool to have some sort of update/retrospective.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I know The Burdened. He auctioned that suit for charity years ago. He got four figures for it.

    He's still a fan, but he got married a few years ago. He and his wife have kids now, and they're both working professionally, so he's not into doing fan works much any more.

    He and his wife are pretty cool people, and some of the nicest people I know. He takes the failure of the suit well.

  29. What about Mandopedo?

    Almost 3 years without any news of him

  33. Lets see...

    Redd Pony had nuked his channel about a year ago, his music archive can be found in the description box on here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRjIPDpcHNc


    Flutter Rex, (maybe) its been a year since he posted anything, so maybe he's really drawn out about it. https://www.youtube.com/user/FlutterRex
