I'm glad the poll was still open because I just caught up with this one yesterday and I adored it. I thought Pinkie Pie was inspiring the way she loves someone so very different and sees the best in everything about her. Pinkie's insane optimism and just flat out assumption that everyone is wonderful and will want to like each other makes me happy.
I loved Maud, at first I thought "is this going to be Pony Daria?" but she is more like lots of very nerdy one topic people I've known.
