Me with sunglasses
Who am I? Known as Silverbolt,

or my real name, Reuben.

Why am I here? To find people like me, with similar interests, who don't mind if I'm weird like them.
How am I doing? Generally pretty good, occasional strong bursts of loneliness probably brought about by maturing.
How would I describe Myself? Quiet, honest, outspoken, calm, a loner, smart and book-loving, a bit of a lazy streak. I have a deadpan/smart-alack humor that can annoy people.

My real name is Reuben. I'm 18, nearly 19, my birthday is tomorrow (the 11th). I'm really tall (6' 6"), thin and strong. Because of my height, people often think I'm older. I also bang my head a lot. I also have big feet and tend to be a little clumsy and trip over stuff. I've been on various wikis for about 5 years, but just discovered MLP:FIM and this wiki a few months ago. I live on a farm in a small town in the great state of ever-changing weather and traffic cones, Ohio. I am pure Swiss, but my ancestors have lived in the USA for many generations.


I'm currently living at home with my parents and four younger siblings. I have relatives in Texas, Indiana, Michigan and Mexico.


  • Synthesia and Electronic
  • Dubstep (which Epic Ares introduced me to)
  • Bluegrass
  • Mexican Salsa
  • Jamaican Swing
  • Enya
  • Pretty much anything upbeat with a catchy rhythm.


I am a voracious reader, I like mostly Westerns, Military/Thrillers, Crime/Mystery and Suspense. Some of my favorite authors are Clive Cussler, Lee Child, Patrick Robinson, James Patterson, Louis L'Amour, Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle.


For movies, again Westerns and Military make up the bulk, along with any James Bond or Arnold Schwarzenneger. Shows include Dr Who, Mythbusters, and of course MLP:FIM.


  • By nature I am very introverted, quiet and shy, I really don't like meeting new people and have a hard time making new friends.
  • I'm honest and have a good bit of common sense.
  • I tend to be quite brash and outspoken like Rainbow Dash, saying my opinion without thinking about if it will hurt people. I also tend to act a bit know-it-all, questioning things other people do that I don't understand.
  • Almost all of the time I'm quite calm and laid back, I can take a joke on myself without getting mad. However, on the occasions I do get mad, I get really mad.
  • I have a rather bad lazy/procrastionation streak.


  • I draw a lot, I'm pretty decent at it.
  • I work as a garage door installer/technician.
  • I like chess, ping-pong, soccer and hockey.
  • I could not live without my Leatherman multitool.
  • I'm not into a lot of social media/texting/calling.
  • My favorite color is green
  • I like playing Combat Flight simulators, platform games and FPS.
  • I have an IQ of approximately 136
  • I tend to fixate on details a little too much sometimes.
  • I'm quite good at spelling and grammar, and it really bugs me when people make mistakes.
  • I'm also a decent writer, though I do better as an editor/proofreader because I'm really good at fixing mistakes and making stuff sound a lot better.
  • I like comfortable clothes (jeans, t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, khakis, polos), and detest uniforms and dress clothes.
  • I also wear a lot of baseball hats and sunglasses, and I think fedoras and trench coats are boss.
  • I am a texture freak (even when I was a baby), and I can't stand odd/prickly textures like corduroy, wool and polyester.
  • My favorite foods are steak, pizza and sub sandwiches.
  • My favorite mealtime is lunch.
  • My favorite dessert is ice cream, and my favorite flavors are Black Cherry, Maple Nut and Mint Chocolate Chip.
  • I am an obsessive snacker, and can demolish surprising amounts of food unaware.
  • My favorite snacks are Milk Chocolate Chips and Chocolate-covered Animal Crackers.


  • On another wiki I had a friend who was a brony. Eventually I thought "let's see what all the fuss is about". I watched the first two episodes, and BAM, I was hooked.
  • My favorite ponies are Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Cadance, Derpy, Dr Whooves and Fleur Dis Lee.
  • I am a secret brony, nobody knows I am. I intend to keep it that way.


  • I'm strong, honest and smart like Applejack.
  • I like sports like Rainbow Dash.
  • I'm smart and love books like Twilight Sparkle.
  • I always love a good joke or laugh like Pinkie Pie.
