[Comedy][Shipping][Slice of Life] "This is a fun, upbeat story that takes a tired joke in the fandom and makes it actually work. It's a real joy to see the author's take on Equestria and these characters; anyone who has ever dealt with trying to get their creative works noticed will really connect with Lyra in this story. I recommend this to anyone who likes unobtrusive shipping and the sort of humor that comes from everyday life and its occasional zaniness." -Pre-reader who likes sky pirates

Canterlot Gardens is quickly approaching, leaving little time for those of us who are going to prepare! The convention promises to be great fun and I look forward to seeing all of you who can attend. Make sure to poke me while I'm there in my lab coat and say hello!
As we approach zero hour though, we'd like to know what you'll be doing at Canterlot Gardens! For instance, what events and activities at CG do you plan to partake in and what else do you look forward to seeing in Ohio? Are there any questions you'd like to ask the VAs?
Also, there are going to be a few non-pony VAs at the convention as well. Out of those attending are there any you'd like to do a guest voice in the show? Also, are their any suggestions for the convention on which roles from the show these VAs should play during the Boast Busters Screen Reading Panel? I'm sure it would be fun for John DiMaggio to do Twilight's voice for instance.
If you'd like to leave a comment on the questions asked here please state a question you're curious about, and please leave a comment when you can!
Guests of Honor
Smash brothers with ponies? What started as a simple thing in the roundup the other day seems to be expanding into a game that might be on it's way for release! Using the desktop pony models, coder "Fluttershy Sparkle" is making some pretty interesting progress on it!
There is also a contest going on for OC ponies if you want to try to get yours involved. Find that here!
Anyway, check out Vinyl Scratch after the break!
The pony MMORPG Legends of Equestria has a planned stress test going out on their client for the weekend of Canterlot Gardens. Head on over to their main website and create an account on the forums if you want in! This might be your best chance to fly around as a pony for once!
Check out the announcement for information on their CG festivities as well!
Curious about the status of the FiM cards that Enterplay has been producing and selling lately? Then you may want to tune in as Calpain and I ask the president of the company a few questions about the current line, what may lie in the future for both the card sets and fan involvement in their creation, and perhaps a tidbit or two about upcoming cards and information about how the exclusivity issue (where the exclusive cards go for hundreds on eBay) is being addressed.
Beyond the break you can find the video and a sneak peak at the upcoming collector's tin!

It sounds like the musical scores in season 3 are going to be even more epic than the last two. Will Anderson dropped this over on his Deviant Art page from the executive producer of FiM:
Pretty damned solid Will!There were already a ton of incredibly memorable scores hidden in the background of Friendship is Magic. Hell, we even had a section in progress before the season ended. I'm looking forward to filling it up!
You're makin it hard for me to find stuff to call.
I suppose this is technically the last episode for you this season. Wish we could celebrate somehow. It's been a solid, solid season for music score. You and your team are definitely killin it, and i'm sure the Bronies will feel it too. They're gonna have youtube videos where they extract the dialogue and SFX and just listen to the score!
Thanks for an awesome third season!
We were actually taking about this particularly in reference to the score for (omitted). We all agreed that you really took the scores for season 3 to a new level... so thanks for all your work this season!
