    Description: Celestia has been keeping a close eye on here once wayward sister Luna, but that hasn't stopped Luna from plotting her demise (and the demise of the Elements of Harmony) in absolute secrecy. After three-years under house arrest in the castle, the first steps in her plan to overthrow Princess Celestia have been set in motion, on the night of a full moon, as she schemes to take the throne and bring the lands of Equestria to everlasting night once again, and killing all who stand in her way.

  • Wall Street Journal Reports on Pony!

    In their recent "Never Too Old for "Thundercats"? article, a small brony plug snuck in.  It's pretty brief, and in one of their smaller side colum sections, but that's a pretty heavily publicized location for our ponies to invade.  You can find it in the image above.

    Maybe we should get get Jayson Thiessen or Daniel Ingram into the Time Magazine top 100?

    Thanks to Gamerlord for the image! 

  • Bronies for Good Seeking Banner Art

    The brony charity group, Bronies for Good, is making huge strides in their quest to be a force for good in the world, and are potentially even looking at registering as an officially recognized charitable organization. But in order to reach the level of prominence and organization necessary to make leaps like that, they need to present a unified and more structured face. To that end, they're looking for official banners and logos to use everywhere. That's where you come in! Here's what the group asked me to share with you:

    Hello bronies,

    We are holding a competition starting today and ending on Aug. 31. We are looking for two banners (800 x 110 and 319 x 100) and one logo (preferably a vector) Any submissions should try to avoid any direct imagery from MLP FiM (the banners can, as long as a credit to the original creators is shown. The logo should not, as we would like to eventually use it for apparel and accessories.) Once you have submission that could possibly fit these requirements, you are more than welcome to submit it as a photo on the Bronies for Good Facebook page, where it can be put forth for consideration by the members of BfG

    We are also looking for custom themes for SMF and WordPress if anyone is interested in that.

    Please let any questions about this be known so we can answer them.

    Best Regards,

    Bronies for Good.

  • Latin American Official Ticketmasters Dub

    Someone uploaded the Ticketmaster DVD from the Latin American pony toy on YouTube.  For those of you curious about how it sounds in other languages, you can find both part one and part two after the break!
  • Official Pony...Body Pillows!

    Yep! It has been done.

    These are 100% official found at Toys R' Us, for 38 bucks altogether.  They were not in the actual MLP section, but the baby section across the store.

    Apparently these are the only two available, so those seeking the comfort of a Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash will have to wait.  

    You can find the ponychan thread about it here!

    and links!

  • Story: Spiderses

    [GODLIKE] Every once in a while, I open my mail box and am instantly hit with a sense of absolute peace.  The feeling is indescribable.  This happened just yesterday, and I immediately forwarded the submission to the pre-readers to share the newfound joy I was now blessed with. 

    Four of them came back with super powers, and the other seventeen cryogenically froze themselves, because absolutely nothing else in this world could possibly top the experience they all shared while reading what has come to be known as the ultimate masterpiece of human intelligence.

  • Buy Candy, Make Art



    Do you have a ridiculous amount of candly laying around?  Are you bored and feeling creative?  Look no further than Skittle Art!

    Two people over on DA have been converting various fan art pieces into giant works of diabetes inducing goodness.  They are also taking requests over on a their DA page.

  • Season One Chord Book


    Fresh off of last night's release of a previously unreleased season one song, CrayolaBrony writes in to show us his Season One Chordbook for guitarists. It's... well, it's huge. If I knew how to play anything but a plastic Rock Band guitar I would totally bust out some chords and sing badly for about an hour before realizing how silly I looked and putting on some metal to compensate. But secretly I'd feel pretty good about it.

    Did I do a link? I forget. I'll do it again. Chordbook is here.

  • Writing Training Ground Week 4 Complete!

    All those budding authors throwing words all over the place and spamming my poor pre-readers.  It's cute really; just like Derpy!

    Week 4 - Cliches
    Looks like 26 fics and poems submitted. How many spells can one pony screw up? Why are Dash's wings so very easy to injury and/or misplace. Will socks make Luna a happy pony? Why is everything suddenly bigger and 8? You'll have to read these to find out.

  • Google Chrome Themes



    I love Chrome. It's so much more stable than Firefox these days. That said, I do often have both running at once. Chrome houses my email box and Gtalk and things like that so when Firefox crashes I'm not out of the loop. It's a nice system.

    Two ponies by the names of GrendoPony and Julien12826 write to tell us of some pony Chrome themes they've cooked up. The entire set of the mane six's can be found here, and Julien would also like to let you guys know that he's working on a Scootaloo theme, which can also presumably be found at the same link when they're finished with it.
