I find it hard to talk about this situation without tearing up, but here goes.

For those who haven't heard, Michael Morones is an amazing little boy who has experienced significant and persistent harassment and bullying because of his love of My Little Pony.  So much so that this week Michael attempted to take his own life.  He is currently in a coma and seems to have has suffered brain damage.  His family is now faced with mounting medical expenses, lost work time, and the horror and stress of seeing their sweet, amazing child suffer.

For those who would like to reach out to Michael and his family or follow Michael's progress and recovery, you can do so via both Facebook and Twitter

Donations directly to Michael's family can be made through paypal using this email address- csuttle3@gmail.com

UPDATE-  The phenomenal Eileen Montgomery is heading up a GoFundMe campaign page for Michael.  Head over there and drop some funds.  The $5000 goal isn't far away!

Sophillia is also hosting an auction benefiting Michael's recovery fund.  Hers is for an incredibly beautiful and fabulous plush Rarity.  Check it out and place your bids!

I am also running an ebay auction with all proceeds going to Michael and his family.  


An 11x17" print featuring Spike the Dragon and Mayor Mare, signed by their voice actor Cathy Weseluck and a first edition printing of the book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell, signed by author G.M. Berrow.

If there's something from my gallery that you don't see here, and you win the auction, let me know and I'll make it happen.

43 buttons including all the ones I've retired. ALSO, though not listed on ebay, but I will include the I Believe In MA Larson button, the I Believe in Tacos and Beer button, AND a Chaurus Egg Button.

My new Alicorn Amulet blank notebook with fabric cover, silver page edges and laser-etched  symbol on the front cover.  The notebook is the first version of the Black Alicorn Amluet books I will be selling at conventions and on Etsy later this year.  This copy will be the only one made with the crystal version of the Alicorn Amulet.

Thanks to everyone for checking in.  If you can, please take a look at the auction or make a donation to Michael.  If you can't, then please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers.  I will try and keep this journal updated as information changes and other ways to help become available.

I think everyone should know. 
I emailed the family because I wanted to draw Michael a picture. His favorite pony is Pinkie Pie.

I would love to donate money and help out, but things are very tight because of my current situation.  All I can do is wish the kid and his family the best.  I hope the kid comes out of it.

Holy shit. It's one thing to make fun of grown men liking a girl's show, but bullying a little boy and BEATING HIM INTO A COMA?!?!

His coma actually resulted from a suicide attempt, not a physical attack. Not that driving an 11 year old to attempt suicide is any less cruel.

They bully an eleven year old almost to the point of committing suicide, and are likely laughing at his current condition, and they say WE are the cancer? Why does this world praise evil and punish good?

I REALLY would like to write a comment on hating on bullies, but I can't because not too long time ago I was one. And I ESPECIALLY did it to bronies :P So I'm just kind of shocked. I wonder what have I nearly caused people to do?

Some do have a reason. I'm trying to separate myself from that group I'm in, but one does not simple leave the group of bullies. You can't judge a persons decision if you don't know them or do not even ask why.

The very nature of humanity is founded on it. From an evolutionary standpoint, hate is very beneficial, and thus far Darwin likes advancement more than ponies.

Where to start? Nazi Germany seems a good example; a whole nation unified by aggressive expansion and hatred for various peoples and demographics.
War in on itself is perhaps the best, though. Constantly, without pause, it begins again. Reborn by hate. 

Or, a small boy attempting suicide because of the crime of enjoying something that he supposedly shouldn't.

Pixelkitties makes them herself. And some of the stuff is "retired" as in they are not being produced anymore.

That's a lot. I'll help spread the word about it. I do have to say, it's amazing. Amazing that the fandom is uniting to help this kid. *sheds a tear* Let's help get him back on his feet. I'm right now speaking with someone to see if we can create and OC for him. I may give it a shot but I may not be good at it. I have to at least try because quite frankly, I want to do what I feel is right.

I don't see why it matter so much. Whether a boy, girl, adult, or child, you should be able to like what you want and not ahve to suffer because of it. I hope he gets better Waaaah! No, I disagree!
