Comic: Bravo vs Ponyville 5 / Pinkie The Pirate / Derpy meets Luna in her new house / Flutterpox (Part Two)
Bravo invades Ponyville, Twilight Sparkle turns to Piracy, Derpy learns a new way to sleep, and Rainbow Dash apologizes for this comic. Click them all for full!
Another week means another convention compilation. Got a decent bit of news for you all tonight which you can check out after the break!
Now for the headlines, check after the break for the full scoop:
- Equestria LA AM2 Q&A Panel
- Midwestria Updates
- Love is Magic at TrotCon
- BronyCon documentary invites military servicemembers to dinner
- Galacon is SOLD OUT!
Time for round two of the Summer Funimation Project! They need storyboards, and our fandom is overflowing with artists! After the break, you will find the full set of rules, including the example storyboard that will hopefully get you in the door, as well as examples on how exactly something like this works for those that haven't ever attempted one before. Think of it as a learning experience!
Now go check it out after the break!
That first song guys... It's probably the most unique we have had in forever. One of the music reviewers compared it to sail. We also have an electronic vocal dedicated to changlings in the second slot! It's vocal time!
1.) Midwives Of Discord - Hint Of Red feat. Zeeraw
2.) The Changeling - Blaze, Tuxe & Ozzwald
I told you guys I'd give you stats, so have some stats!
For the past year and a half we have been completely swarmed by pony fans all around the world. Out of 6 million unique IP's (give or take a million based on people with dynamic IP's and multiple devices), the top 10 countries can be found below the break.
We couldn't have kept this going without you guys though! All of the artists, authors, community organizers, musicians, video editors, animators, and the average pony fans out there should give yourselves a pat on the back. We took something that was the complete opposite of societal norms, and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon!
We aren't the only site that hit a huge milestone today though. Amazingly enough, our bro-fanfic site Fimfiction hit 100,000,000 in the exact same hour as our 200mil hit. All you crazy authors and readers sure do love your pony stories!
World maps and top 10 countries, along with Fimfiction's last year stats can be found after the break!

Update: Added 2 videos of the event!
Poor Gilda... She barely ever gets fan art. At least Trixie has a small but extremely vocal fan base!
Have some art
And thanks to Bryon for the 200,000,000 hits Pinkie Pie banner! We have a few more still in progress, along with some collab with another site that also hit a milestone in the last hour. Look forward to that later!
I digress though. The full set information can be found here as always!
This is awesome. More proof that Luna needs another episode. Children of the Night is an animation project that a duo of people over on Youtube are in the process of creating, and this is the animatic for it! Now go watch it after the break, and check out their dev blog here!
This is essentially the "brony" set, with Nightmare Moon, Trixie, Scratch, Pinkie, Dash, and Daisy. Toys R' Us has added pre-orders to their website for $39.99. If you want more stuff aimed at us, take that donation money that we seem to have endless supplies of and throw it here instead! Your collection isn't complete without Scratch and Nightmare Moon anyway!
Thanks to Ace Reporter Whatshisgame for the news as always! Dude makes Twilight Sparkle's 5 days without sleep look like a blind person trying to play Mushihimesama Futari Black Label GOD MODE Stage 5.
Description: Rainbow Dash gets a unique opportunity to join the Wonderbolts. Thus, she moves away to Cloudsdale, leaving Ponyville behind. However, she remains in contact with her friends via letters. Time passes, things change, but the letters remain constant.Dear Ponyville

Raindrops because Raindrops is always relevant!
Clover the Clever, the administrator of the newly minted Derpiboo.ru, the replacement for Ponibooru, reports to us that the website has worked through its teething issues and is now fully operational. He urges people who were having problems connecting last time we announced it to try again. In my personal testing, the server seems much more snappy.
Go check it out! They're ready. In his own words, though: 'famous last words'.
Pinkie Pie shapes her hair into an afro and goes insane: the flash. Actually, that's pretty much her description all the time, so I guess there isn't anything new to see here, is there?
Yep, Calpain here with some sleeping ponies. Have I gotten predictable yet? At the very least I can afford to stay up late and report the news to you guys as I have officially turned in everything for my Masters program and am free to pony with you all this summer.
So time for some news! Why is it when PK needs maintenance these things get longer? It's a conspiracy I tell you!
