• Story: A War of Words - The Opening of the Guard (Update - Sequel Part 8!)

    [Comedy][Slice of Life]

    Author: Georg
    Description: The history of war may be written by the winner, but the Royal Historian is the one who provides the notes and background to the writer. The recent events that some have called ‘Mare Wars’ or ‘The Invasion of the Barracks’ are no exception. The Royal Historian has painstakingly compiled this folder of notes and background material on what should more accurately be called, ‘The Opening of the Guard.’

  • Super Smash Ponies - Music and Gameplay

    The team behind Super Smash Ponies is hard at work trying to emulate the style of the incredibly popular Smash Brothers series, and included in that mix is the music! Some of the more well known orchestral musicians in the fandom have been brought on to pull it off, and both Twilight Sparkle and Rarity already have themes.

    On top of that, they have a short gameplay video showing off advanced techniques, including frame cancels and the usual combo system.  Head on down past the break for everything!

  • Comic: It Takes Two / Mega Mailmare / Don't Drink and Drive

    The amount of cute comics and artwork that has come out of Sleepless in Ponyville has been truly heartwarming. You can never have enough Scootalove pictures and comics in my opinion so keep them coming guys!

    You know the drill, click for full.

  • Wonderbolt Blindbag Single at Hot Topic, Scratch Case back in Stock

    The "gray" wave Wonderbolt blindbag has popped up over on Hot Topic.  It's pretty pricey at $5.50, so it might be best to wait on the actual box set to release, but if you can't wait, you can pick up the specific pony here!

    And on the card side of the spectrum, the Vinyl Scratch box is back in stock for those that couldn't pick one up during the first wave.

    Now we just need that Funko Doctor Whooves and Fluttershy...
  • Story: As the Sun Sets (Update Part 5!)


    Author: Mystic
    Description: When Twilight is given the opportunity to travel with Princess Celestia on what appears to be a regular dignitary’s trip to see the dragons, she’s ecstatic. After all, nopony has seen the dragon kingdom in over a hundred years.

    But they are not alone on the journey; there are rumours being carried on the wind, hushed whispers of something stirring in the east...

    Their presence reignites an ancient chain of events that will see Twilight racing for help in the darkest places on earth and the princess struggling to reconcile her role in the world, surrounded on all sides by enemies she thought defeated millennia ago.

    The clock is ticking. Time is running out, and the sun has already begun to set...

    (An epic fantasy adventure set in the same narrative universe as The Sun Whispers Your Name. It's not at all required reading; it just expands upon world-building.)

  • (Updated) A Grey Muffin Related Pony Possibly on the Way?

    A few hours ago, someone in the submit box going by the name of Thaius sent over a short bit of information from SacAnime.  Apparently they talked to Grey DeLisle (voice actress of Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender) about a twitter message she sent out a while back where she teased that she would be voicing "a grey pony".  This lead to an autographed laptop, with "a line that the pony would say".  And the line? "Muffins". 

    Now you may have noticed the dancing Twilight a few minutes ago.  Our blog intern for life and resident Azula fanboy PK, decided to bug her via direct message on twitter for confirmation (character cap and internet term abbreviations included), and the above was the response.   Either she's trollier than Tara Strong, or we may be seeing some muffins and muffin related grey ponies in a future season.  Obviously it's not 100% confirmation on anything, but it's fun to dream right?

    So dance away Twilight Sparkle! 

    (Update: This has been confirmed to be a fan Project! I'm still interested in seeing it though! Not a lot of those end up with industry voice actors.)

  • Nightly Roundup #546

    Everytime I see paper lanterns I think of that one scene from Tangled where the sky is filled with nothing but the beautiful little things. Considering Rarity's skill with the arts, I think she would make beautiful lanterns.

    News time ponies! Check it all after the break!

    Thanks to the folks who pointed out my movie name derp.
