• John De Lancie on Ponies

    I didn't want to spam the poor guy's Twitter page, but my email is getting slammed instead, so... yah!

    John De Lancie (The voice of Discord and Q from Star Trek) is apparently pretty surprised at the sudden surge of rabid pony fans.  He has been answering questions over there for a day or two now.  I'm not saying go attack his account, but for those that are fans of Discord, there are some pretty interesting responses buried in the logs. 

    Check out the page for it here!

  • Confirmed Gap Between Discord arc and Episode 3


    Looks like Sibsy was right- there is going to be a gap between this two-parter with Discord and the rest of season two. How big of a gap is uncertain at this point, but if we survived the entire summer without new pony, I'm sure we can manage a month or two with only this so-far fabulous two-parter to hold us over.

    Thanks to Micheal for the heads up!

              • High-Res Pony Icon Set


                Just in case covering your desktop with the desktop ponies and having your wallpapers continuously rotate through your folder of six and a half dozen awesome pony wallpapers wasn't enough pony on your computer, now you can convert every feasible icon your programs use into these high-quality pony icons, too.

                Speaking of which, at the rate pony is completely taking over the world, I wouldn't be surprised if Intel and AMD released hardware support for pony in the next few years. How cool would that be? You'd have direct chip-level acceleration of all pony games, applications, and episode playback. Let's take that one step further; how about a dedicated pony chip required on all logic boards? The show would be so ubiquitous by that point that it would just make good business sense to include such a thing.

              • Story Updates September 19

                Remember that post yesterday? Well it was only about half, so have part two of the story update queue.  I don't know what season two did, but you guys are updating these things at the speed of light lately.

                I did actually dig around some of the stories that were updated yesterday with this method, and two of them actually maxed out their google docs, forcing it into view only mode, so I don't think any are missing out on viewers.

                Just a reminder: New fics, and final update (complete) Fics will not be found here. It's also not the entire update queue.

                Anyway, you can find all them all after the break. As always please comment on their respective story posts, and not here.

                Anyway have some PONY NEWS on this PONY site after the break.

              • Season Two Available on Itunes

                Season Two is now available the same way Season one was on itunes.  You can buy each episode for 2.99, or an HD season pass for 49.99 (With SD being 10 bucks cheaper).  Amazingly enough, Twilight Sparkle has all of her hooves on the banner this time around! I'm so relieved.
