• 2 Day Drawing Training Grounds - Service Edition


    It's New Years! Why do these keep dropping on holidays?  I blame Applejack.   For the sake of all of your sanities as you recover from tonight, this will be two days long as opposed to the usual one day. 

    As requested by Phoe, we will also be rolling with a single prompt to make things a bit easier as opposed to the three tier system that has been the norm.  This is the training ground after all!

    Now have a goal: 
    A pony has agreed to follow the noble dragon code! Draw them helping with something!
    How they help, why they help, and what they do to help is up to you!

    The usual rules apply outside two day deadline of Wednesday January 2nd 11:59 PM PST (7:59 AM GMT) deadline.  Late entries have a chance at sneaking in, but it will close some time after that so be ready!

    Head on over here and click the "2 Day Drawing Training Grounds - Service Edition" event to submit. 


  • Story: The Secret Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (Update Part 3!)


    [Crossover]

    Author: Paper_mate_Pony
    Description: Dearest Billy,

    It is with a heavy hand that I must relay: He is dead, and passed away among his bees only some hours ago. I, too, am not long of this earth, thus it falls to you to publish my final wish. The attached parcel is my tin box--you have ferried it hither and thither before--and it is where notes from all our adventures, spanning two centuries, as many wars and three monarchs had been safely kept. The remaining bundles within, however, we agreed some time ago to never publish, lest our reputations be shredded. However, with his passing heavy on my mind, I cannot forget such cases, so singular and impressive that they prove, without a doubt, that Sherlock Holmes was the greatest detective London, Britannia, and Worlds beyond our farthest imaginations could ever have known.These cases will confuse you--perhaps even tarnish your memories of us--but mark my words: they are as true and real as the paper upon which you read this letter.

    Most Faithfully,
    Dr John. H. Watson MD

  • Charity Reports: Donations from Each!


    We had a few charities from around the fandom submit some financial reports on where exactly your hard earned money went!  It's  amazing how much we have sent off to support these various causes throughout the year.  You guys are awesome!

    Head on down past the break for all of them!

  • Discussion: What Should Each Pony's New Years Resolution Be?

    I had to re-use this Luna for science.
    It's the new year! Everypony is deciding on what they will do to better themselves as 2013 rolls around.  As is the norm for ponies though, they need your help!

    Pick your favorites, be they mane six, princesses, obnoxious blue antagonists, or background ponies, and give them some goals to strive for!

    Drop your stuff below the break!

    Hard Mode: Applejack can't have anything to do with apples or ponies named after apples.
  • Comic: Very Important Tasks / Family Issues / Spike Lighter / Thinking Outside the Blocks


    Sadly enough, I can imagine Twilight actually doing this.  We have crossovers, insanity, and simple pixel stuff this time around. Click for full!




  • Season Finale Confirmed to be A Single Parter, M.A. Larson Writes It


    I think it was pretty obvious based on episode numbers at this point, but Meghan McCarthy has confirmed that the season finale will in fact be a single parter, similar to season one.  She also let everyone know that M.A. Larson (Magic Duel, Cider Squeezy, Ect) is the writer for it. 


    And finally, in other news, Corey Powell will be the writer for Just for Sidekicks. She was the same one behind Sleepless in Ponyville, so  I'm pretty sure the rest of the season is going to be epic.   

    Thanks to Dan and Kein for the heads up!

    (and in other, other news, I think Zap2it derped one of these episodes, unless we are going to see a new cast of ponies for one of these!) 
  • Fillydelphia Radio Top 50 Countdown

  • Drawfriend Stuff #671


    Have you ever smelled a rabbit? They don't smell good.  Lets hope Fluttershy is going to take a bath after this.

  • Wet Mane Silver Spoon Invades Gameloft Sale


    As is the norm for the Gameloft Game, another sale is currently going down with a bit of Silver Spoon thrown into the mix.  The ad they are using that pops up when you launch the game is a bit different than the filly we usually associate with the name!  That's an interesting marketing strategy! Now all they need are socks!

    thanks to David and everyone else for the heads up!

    Description: An ordinary afternoon at Canterlot's Summer Sun Faire becomes extraordinary when a young filly gets too curious and Princess Cadence experiences every foalsitter's worst nightmare. This is how one Princess discovered there is more to Twilight Sparkle than she ever imagined, and realized she is truly anything but "a regular old unicorn."

  • Nightly Roundup #540


    You guys must all be busy with the holiday season as it has been a slow news period for us here at EqD, at least where Roundup news is concerned. That's ok, we need breaks every so often as well!

    Tonight though, we do have some news as we bring the year to a close, the last Roundup of 2012! Hope you all have a great New Years Eve and I'll see you all again in the new year.
