In an effort to restore the country to its former glory, Princess Celestia sends Twilight Sparkle to the northern country of Prance to seek aid.

  • Music: Discord's Lament / I'm Not, But I Wish I Was / Rainbow's Blood


    It's vocal time! Have some Discord, Scarlett Peace, and our favorite 14 year old rapper remixing Rainbows Blood, because some crazy event made a bunch of people jump all over that song in particular! The lyrics are a bit explicit, but I guess you can expect that.

    2.) I'm Not, But I Wish I Was - Scarlett Peace
    3.) Interrobang Pie - Rainbow's Blood ( TheDumplingz Cover )

  • Artist Training Grounds: Mock War, Day 5


    Recruits! Our rescue mission was a success! There's been so much to do, but even in the midst of a busy week and with the grind beginning to set in, you've persevered to bring in 327 lost and captured ponies! I know it isn't easy, but you guys keep sticking with it and churning out content in stupendous numbers. With an event total of 1805 images, we're in the final stretch. Give it your all!

    Remember, send your submissions in here. Keep using full image urls when sending from DeviantART, and send any problems along to phoe@equestriadaily.com.

    Day 5: A Winner is You!
    The whirlwind of activity lately has been so intense that you can scarcely keep track of everything that has been happening. One day a griffon assault squad storms the camp and is barely beaten back. Another day you're charging in behind General Derpy's siege troops. And that princess you rescued? Hasn't. Shut. Up. Not a single day has gone by without a quip from her or a close encounter of the lemon meringue kind. All the ponies you've come to know as friends have come back smothered in cherries.

    And then all of a sudden... everything stopped. All quiet on the western front, and every other war story cliche you've ever heard. No more pastries or name calling or being yelled at. In their place, there's confetti and shocked faces and dancing in the street. "We won! We actually won!" somepony calls out. To your left, a minty green unicorn sweeps a cream colored earth pony off of her hooves and kisses her deeply. To your right, your superiors gather together and smile. Despite everything, you can't help but feel a sense of pride. 
    "You did great work, soldier," Derpy beams with pride and steps aside to reveal a shimmering portal, "You can go home now."
    But... do you want to?
    Assignment: Draw a pony coming home

  • Project Saturation: Initial Animatic

    A massive new animation project is currently under way, going by the name of "Project Saturation'. The movie hopes to explore the inner character behind discord, using the mane 6 to hopefully bring forth a past life.  I'll let the synopsis explain it:
    Luna and Celestia detect that Discord, despite being imprisoned in stone, is still at work. Instead of attempting to fight him, they free him in exchange that he enter an agreement to, once again, challenge Twilight Sparkle and her friends. On the surface, this is to improve the abilities of the main six so they can confront unknown threats in the future, which Celestia and Luna are wary of, but Celestia also believes that the six may be able to remind Discord of a past life, where he would not be so motivated to malicious intents.

    The story will follow Discord as he tests the mane 6 (minus Twilight) individually, separated from Twilight and unable to rely on her magic. Twilight, meanwhile, is instructed to join Discord, yet will she be successful in turning his heart?'
     They are looking for assistance though! Right now vector artists, voice actors, and anyone with skill in animation should watch this video for information on joining the group. 

    Check out the actual animatic fter the break!

  • We ❤ Ponies Mare-A-Thon Commerical



    Wow, I completely forgot to post this in the Zap2it thing earlier. Someone had to submit it to remind me. Apparently a commercial is floating around for the We ❤ Ponies Mare-A-Thon, filled with more glorious Rainbow Dash lines.

    So... Go watch it! 

    Apparently I'm a tag on the video. Thanks, I think :p
  • Drawfriend Stuff #315


    Engineer Earth Ponies need to happen! Clearly hooves and a mouth are the best way to build things.  Hands are for losers who can't handle doing it the real way, and magic is for cheaters.

    Have some art.

  • New Blurb About Hearts and Hooves Day


    Over on Zap2it, a new press release has popped up regarding the We <3 the Ponies Mare-A-Thon.  Buried in the stuff we all pretty much know about is an updated blurb about Hearts and Hooves Day.  It's minor, but I'm sure some of you will enjoy digging into it and trying to figure out what it actually means.

    I'll toss it after the break, or you can hit up the page and look for it for yourself.

  • Thinking With Portals: Delivery Service

    I'm pretty sure this is the best series ever.  I say that a lot, but I mean it this time. Portal combined with ponies in animation form? It's hard to top that.  The Starcraft avatars came close, but giving Derpy any sort of  multi-dimentional device is grounds for hilarity no matter how you look at it.

    Check it out here!
  • Music: Winter Wrap Up (Elliptisoar House Remix) / Princess Addictia - Becoming Popular / My Minor Pony

  • PonyKart - Sweet Apple Acres



    Remember all those times when I said this community surprised the hell out of me? Well, double that. This is the best possible thing. The team over at PonyKart.net is going all out on this one. Everything from the graphics to the soundtrack look great so far. Apparently this track isn't even finished yet.

    They will be opening up more slots for their group on Monday, so stay tuned if you want to help out!

    Also Twilight Sparkle.

    I'll stop blabbering and let you watch the video!

  • Polish Pony Comic Translated


    Another foreign Pony comic has been translated up.  I almost wish it wasn't though based on that 4th page.  Without reading it, I can only assume Rainbow Dash unlocked some sort of SUPER RAINBOW POWER MODE.  That would be epic!

    Thanks to Diegotan for the translations and rips!

  • Random Merch Stuff: Rainbow Dash Shopping Bags, Pony Cookies Officially Release

    And for those seeing to devour some helpless gram cracker ponies, the cookies have officially released over in Australia, specifically at a store called Aldi.  Inside, you will find Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, Sweetie Belle,  Butterflies, and Flowers.  I didn't get any reports of any other ponies popping up, but I did hear Pinkie Pie tastes delicious.

    Each pack also comes with  30 popup stickers.
