    Howdy folks - how are we all doing?

    I guess I'll start with the big news. Yesterday - (blimey, it is 'yesterday' now, isn't it?) - at Pitp, I asked my girlfriend, LezliDax, to be my wife.

    Fortunately for me, she said yes.

    So here I sit, typing away with my fiancee lying asleep beside me...and its made me realize something. I have a lot to be thankful for, and a lot of people to say thank you to. So, if you'll permit me a moment of your time, I'd like to tell you the story of how this was all made possible. By saying thank yous.

    Firstly, I owe huge thanks to Alteran - boss, if you hadn't founded UK of Equestria, Dax & I wouldn't have met. For that, I'll likely be in your debt forever.

    To my brother-in-arms Max Apogee, without whom I would have bolted from my first meet within 5 minutes of arriving. You've been one of my best pals since day #1 and thanks to you I've never stopped looking forward to the next brony meet. I even met my future missus at Pitp. Again, my thanks.

    Then there was the late night skype convo I had with Treacle Flapjack which kicked off the RP for 'My Little Human'. Thanks to him, I got talking with one Princess CelezliDax for the first time.

    I also want to thank my brother CJJ and my band of bronies who made today possible - Stormswirl, Greetings, greatodyer, Silvarrn and Max...again...

    Lastly, I want to thank all of you guys; the friends I've made through this site and all of the bros that have made this community something Lezli and I cherish. We've come so far as a couple and, since the very beginning, we've been surrounded by the best friends anyone could ask for.

    And yes, we do wish that everyone who started this race with us could have been there; we missed my little sis, the spirit of chaos, our very precioussss friend...


    So...did you read all that? Well done. If not, here be the TL;DR.

    Dax and I are getting married and I'm so very grateful to this forum, and it's members. You will all be invited to the wedding and we hope that, by the time the big day arrives, all of our friends will be there. Whatever divisions may exist now, they are nothing when compared to an open bar love.

    Be good, people.


    - BRJ

    Having never been to a wedding, I'd be honoured to go to yours. I'll try my best to be there.
    I do recall saying at the first PitP that you and Dax looked a bit like a couple. I must be a good predictor or something cause dayum.
    Anyway, best of luck to you both. I hope you live long and fruitful lives in each others' company. <3

    You do realise someone is going to have to cosplay as Lezli now and do a whole bit singing This Day Aria in an attempt to trick you, right? :p

    In all seriousness though I'd love to attend if I can. Shall have to try and negotiate the day off work. :)

    I know I've said it before, but congratulations to the both of you. You're both awesome and deserve a long, happy life together.

    I'll try my best - just don't expect me to come in a dress. I hate dresses.
    I'll just walk away and cry that I wasn't in for consideration…

    Once again, I offer my congratulations to both BRJ and LezliDax, and I wish them all the best for a happy and prosperous future.

    As two of the most caring staffers on the forum, and two of the friendliest people I've met in my life, they've helped me a lot during a rough time I was going through previously, and made me look forward to the future. I have a lot to be thankful for, and although my other friends have, too, supported me over the past year, it was them that got me to where I am now.

    At last year's PitP (and the first, IIRC), I did notice something about a BRJ+Lezli ship, and although I did admittedly play it down a bit, I then knew that it all became real, but deep down, I knew that they were made for each other, and I'm happy for them. It's amazing how we, as a community, have come this far, and yesterday was an excellent example.

    In terms of the invite, it would be very unrighteous for me to say "no", so I'd have to say "yes". To take cues from BRJ, I'll turn up in my best suit, which will be a level up from what I've got at the moment :D

    So once again, I'd like to thank BRJ and Lezli for being the best of supportive friends I could wish for, and may their future as husband and wife be a brilliant one :)

    Challenge acce... nah, just kidding XP

    Congratulations to the two of you. I am gutted I missed out on your special moment at PitP (work is draining my life away more than ever), but I will certainly make sure to set a date off for the big day.

    *Captain Jack Sparrow randomly appears*I love weddings, Drinks all around!
    Anywho, Congratulations to the both of you, I'm sure your wedding day would be something to remember, for better or worse (hopefully better), just one question, am I invited?, because if so, Then I'll be attending if I can.
