• Nightly Roundup #308


    Time for some cute fillies because who doesn't want some cute pony to say good night or good morning to before you read the news?

    Yep, Calpain here for another Roundup as we continue our search of the facility for PK. Funny thing is that we still get Roundup reports from him at times despite his disappearance. Must be he's using the mobile device we installed in him to communicate with the outside world.

    Anyhow, sort of a short Roundup tonight so have some quick news!

  • Detailed EqD Fanfiction Statistics


    While I may not be much of a fanfic reader myself I still think this is pretty cool. A brony out there took a detailed look at the EqD story archive and came up with an amazing analysis of the stories featured on the site, coming up with all sorts of bar graphs and charts for us to muse over!

    So if you were ever curious about how many different types of fics there are or which character has the most fics made for them then make sure to check out the full chart after the break!

  • Story: The Stranger and Her Friend (Update Part 28!)


    [Dark][Adventure]

    Author: TheUrbanMoose
    Description: Princess Celestia is a living legend, but much of her life is shrouded in mystery. Records have long since been lost to the decay of time, and the tale of her triumph over Discord has become a fable. The Princess’s memory of the event has long since faded… or has it?

    Her faithful student lending an eager ear, Celestia recounts the true story of a war-torn Equestria, the struggle against Discord, and the early years of her own life.

    Before she was the Princess of the Sun, she was merely a stranger.

  • My Little Pony Royal Wedding Episode Press Release and Episode List



    That was quick! We bugged Shout Factory about the DVD, and they sent over a press release on it. Digging through the text within, it appears to be a compilation of the following episodes:
    • A Canterlot Wedding Part 1
    • A Canterlot Wedding Part 2
    • Hearts and hooves Day
    • Sweet and Elite
    • The Best Night Ever
    That's actually a pretty epic set. So much Canterlot! Did I ever mention how much I love the city?

    The actual bonus features are a bit vague, but if the Friendship Express DVD was any indication, this one is probably going to have something pretty cool.  Maybe another extended theme or something? Who knows!

    And on to the neat informative bit:
    Love is in the air… it’s time to celebrate a royal wedding! My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding is coming to DVD on August 7, 2012 from Shout! Factory in collaboration with Hasbro Studios. My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding features 5 episodes that everypony will love, including “A Canterlot Wedding, Part 1,” “A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2,” “Hearts And Hooves Day,” “Sweet & Elite,” and “The Best Night Ever.” Bonus features will include a coloring sheet and more! Girls can also act out imaginative stories of their own with delightful MY LITTLE PONY wedding-themed figures, play-sets, and vehicles from Hasbro.

    When it’s announced that Twilight Sparkle’s older brother, Shining Armor, is set to marry Princess Celestia’s niece, Cadence, all the ponies in Equestria should be celebrating. But there’s one pony in Ponyville who’s not so thrilled with the news — Twilight Sparkle! Why is the young unicorn so concerned? And will the royal wedding go off without a hitch? Find out in the two-part special, and then join us for the perfect after-party — three more My Little Pony: Friendship
    Is Magic episodes, all included in the first-ever DVD release of My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding!

    My Little Pony – Friendship Is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding is priced at $14.97 and is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com
    And for those that love legal jargon, check out the rest of it here!
  • PMV: On My Way / Love Is In Bloom / Pendulum Ponies

    We have a couple of PMV's for you all this time around!   I'm liking the music in this one.  It has been a while since I heard Pendulum.

    3.) [PMV] Pendulum Ponies

  • Andrew Francis (Shining Armor / Braeburn) Interview

    Andrew Francis (The voice behind Shining Armor and Braeburn) was recently interviewed over on the Trevor Devall voiceprint show.  It is a long one, clocking in at a whopping hour and four minutes, and not pony focused, but there are a few neat tidbits in there regardless! I wonder if we will see more Shining Armor in season 3?

    Check out the interview here!  If you want pony specific sections, hit up 4:00 and 55:00 for the more in depth questions about it. 
  • 8-bit Pony Promo



    The Hub has the best pony commercials.  Also video games are now canon in Equestria.
  • Music Remix: Nightmare Night (Symphonic Metal Cover) / Other Animals / Love is In Bloom (honeymoon cover)


    This fandom needs more symphonic metal. I went through a huge Rhapsody/Dragonforce kick a while back.

    Anyway, have some music remixes!

    1.) Cyril the Wolf - Nightmare Night (Symphonic Metal Cover)
    2.) Facexplodie / SoGreatandPowerful - Other Animals

  • Story: Quite Ready for Another Adventure



    [Sad]

    Author: Tamar
    Description: Young Shining Dawn is very excited when she hears that Princess Celestia is coming to visit Ponyville. But for Sweetie Belle, her grandmother, the visit carries much deeper significance, especially when she learns that her old friends Scootaloo and Applebloom are also coming, and that the Princess is here on a very special visit for Grandmother Twilight.

  • Royal Wedding DVD Pre-Orders on Amazon



    It looks like the next installment of the Shout factory pony lineup is on it's way on the 7th of August.  A DVD titled "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Royal Pony Wedding" is now listed for a cool $10.48. 

    Reading the description on it, at 120 minutes we can probably expect a few bonus episodes to go with the two part season finale.  It also rolls with region 1 once again, so those without unlocked DVD players outside the USA probably won't be able to play it.  Considering the trend out there is box sets though,  I bet you guys aren't too worried!

    Head on over to Amazon if you want to take a look at the page yourself or toss a pre-order out!

  • Drawfriend Stuff #415


    I'd eat a Zap Apple.  Normal apples are so boring.

    I think this painting would fit perfectly into one of those high class art galleries.  The sections that isn't filled with completely off the wall stuff at least.

    Gilda sure is goofy looking.

    Just a quick heads up to everone on story submissions.  Right now we are completely flooded.  Even the approved story queue is sitting at around 9 in line right now.   It might be best to wait a week or so before sending stuff in. 

    Anyway, have some updates!

  • Princess Celestia (Nicole Oliver) Invades Bronycon


    Dear Princess Celestia,

    Bronycon has a ridiculous amount of people to track down and have sign things

    Your Faithful Student
    Sethisto Scootaloo

    P.S. This con is going to be completely crazy! 

    Have some copy paste:
    Last night, during the BronyCon Livestream, our special guest Peter New (voice of Big Macintosh), gave us the good word that our Princess of the Sun will be in attendance at BronyCon, and he’s right! Nicole Oliver, voice of Princess Celestia, will be gracing us with her presence as a Guest of Honor at BronyCon Summer 2012. Nicole is a great addition to an already star-studded guest list, and another great reason why BronyCon is the place to be!

    For a full list of Guests of Honor, and to keep up with the latest in all things BronyCon, be sure to check http://www.bronycon.org and http://www.meetup.com/bronycon!

    In addition, for those of you that missed last night’s livestream, but still want to hear what Big Macintosh had to say for himself, you can find the recording at http://www.livestream.com/feulnerplays. He talks a little bit about how he got into voice acting, what the process for recording voices is, and gives us a few new in-character lines; so get your soundboards ready!

  • Happy Birthday Pinkie Pie!



    As many have reminded me over the last few days, today (or yesterday/tomorrow) is Pinkie Pie's birthday.  How was this determined?  You may remember 75 days ago when "A Friend in Deed" aired, and Pinkie Pie announced to the world that her birthday wasn't for another 75 days.  We have hit that, so it's time for a hostile party pony takeover!

    Now go celebrate, and eat cake.  We all love cake.  You should probably dye the frosting pink though.

    Thanks to Mealjo for the banner!
  • William Anderson Interview #2!
