Love, my little ponies. Love is one of the greatest things in all of Equestria, in all the world, and I’m happy to say that I am not immune to it myself. Yes, I have found somepony special, and rather than let the tabloids have their way, I stand before you today to tell you about the one that has captured my heart. I know that it may not be who you would expect, but then, isn’t that always the way with love?
