It might be a bit late for Back to School season, but over in Chile, a new lineup of MLP Notebooks have popped up. How many of you would be badass enough to bust out one of these in your highschool/college class room?
Thanks to GamesmasterTom and BritishStarr for the heads up!
[Sad] This is a story that differentiates itself from all other "Pony is Insane" stories by rightfully deserving its "Sad" tag, but not needing a "Dark" one. One enters the story wondering when Twilight is going to realize it is all fake. Whatever the author's future intent may be, one finishes the chapters presented here simply hoping that she gets better... -Prereader #13
Author: Derek (Daemon of Decay)
Description: When Twilight Sparkle slipped beneath the covers last night, everything had been fine. She had friends whom she loved, a teacher she adored, and a bright future ahead of her. But when she woke up, her blankets and quilts had been replaced by hospital gowns and padded restraints. Everything is wrong and nothing makes sense; even her friends have changed. The doctors, they keep telling her that she is sick, that none of it was real and it was all in her head. They’re lying. She remembers a life far beyond the hospital walls. She couldn't have made it all up on her own. They must be lying… right?Asylum (New Part 13!)

[Adventure] [Slice of Life]
Description: “If you can make it in Fillydelphia, you can make it anywhere,” or so the saying goes. When a young mare comes to the big city with dreams of being a reporter, she is instead thrust into a world of corruption and squalor where she will need the strength of friends to survive.Freeze Frame

Both Doctor Whooves series have teamed up once again for a simultaneous release of episodes, each clocking in at a whopping hour long! Hope your ears are ready for a bit of fun! Click the images to go check them out.
[Sad][Shipping] A story that ranges from bittersweet to heartbreaking, one that speaks to the emotions of the reader without devolving into a mess of purple prose. -Prereader #13
Description: "Immortality" is such a vague, misleading term. When the fires of life have perished, and all that once tied you to the world is gone, even a Goddess can die.Sundown

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the lack of a Roundup last night, there was a real life scheduling conflict between Seth and I so the news ended up being put to the wayside yesterday. Hopefully some Apple Fritter for tonight's header (plus the extra dose of news) will serve as an apology for the missed Roundup!
Anyhow, it's a new week of Calpain Roundups, so what should the header be for tomorrow night? Leave your vote down in the comments!
On to the news!
