Please note that Derpy wasn't actually addressed in Markarian's conversation with Hasbro, but we can try to take this news as a positive step toward eventually securing her place in the show.

Description: Big Macintosh has fallen hard for the pretty mailmare. When she is forced into a fight for her life, he sticks by her faithfully, but can he keep the promises he's made? The plot is in honor of my mother-in-law, who wasn't so lucky, and I suspect wouldn't actually appreciate inspiring a story about ponies.
The Promises We Keep

One of the storyboard artists over on Deviant Art recently dropped this comment on their page. Apparently "Read it and Weep" was actually "Reading Rainbow" before it's full development cycle was completed.
And the quote:
I have seen a lot of funny fandom comments about how the title should have been "Reading Rainbow". Apparently that actually WAS the working title early on--don't know why they didn't keep it but I assume it has something to do with the rights to the actual show.
Confound this legal nonsense! That would have been glorious!
At least they have us to PMV the hell out of it. I've seen at least 10 "Reading Rainbow" videos since the new episode, and a few before it!
Rainbow Dash shipping: the animation?! That's a new one! I think you may be mis-reading poor spitfire though Dashie. Hit it up after the break!
We also have a Blame it on the Ponies flash, starring pretty much everyone. Check that out here!

This was actually pinned on to the end of the Read it and Weep episode Xyro uploaded, but it looks like that has been sent... TO THE MOON, so have it separated!
It has a four second clip from the upcoming Hearts and Hooves Day for those that didn't bother watching the credits. Nothing groundbreaking, but I'm sure you all can theorize something out of it.

[Normal] [Slice of Life]
Description: Being the captain of Equestria's most renowned aerobatics team is a stressful, and sometimes thankless, job. Her joints ache; her muscles are taut; her mind reels from the sheer responsibility. But, like any professional, Spitfire takes it all in stride with a grin. That is, until a certain rainbow-maned mare started mouthing off. Being accused of 'Camera Hogging' was the final straw. Spitfire finally lost her temper, dumping every ounce of that responsibility on an unwitting rookie and leaving for a single day of respite. This story details her day of (mostly) relaxation.

Oh god, the poor EQD mailbox. Quite a few people sent this over to us. Apparently someone in the UK division of Hasbro has confirmed that Derpy is here to stay, via e-mail. It is a bit odd that we would find out this way (we have dug around everywhere without any luck, we seriously only have this screenshot to go off of), so this is going to roll with a rumor tag until we have something more concrete than random_UK_Hasbro employee.
Until then though, I guess we can celebrate! Hooray for Derpy.
Thanks to everyone that submit it! I wont be able to respond to all of these, but we love you anyway.
Ninja Dash is best Dash. In the interim where we have to go without more Ninja Dash, have some PMVs! I heard they're almost as good.
Yes, I'm a Dash fan now.

Sorry, Rarity! No interesting wallpapers of you this time around for the spotlight. Well, not as interesting as Daring Do up there. She sure is something.
Lots of cool ones this time! Check em out!
It's time for another issue of the Equestria Inquirer, this time in fancy newspaper format on DeviantArt or in convenient video form on Youtube! Shouldn't be long before this is an actual tabloid. Someone, get on that. I'd buy it.
Who said Scratch and Octavia were the only musicians? They all got it!
A heads up to most fanfic writers - The queues are huge. We have received 30+ stories in the past day and a half. It's probably going to take a while to get something through right now! Go take it somewhere for editing, I think around 90% of these are sent to the moon for it anyway!
