• TrotCon Adds G.M.Berrow and Community Guests

    TrotCon has added Friendship is Magic writer G.M. Berrow for their July 15 event in Columbus Ohio. Joining her, are a bunch of community quests! Go get them below.

    TrotCon announces G.M. Berrow, new community guests for 2016

    For our fifth VIP guest announcement for TrotCon 2016, let's bring back a return visitor to Columbus, Ohio.

    You'll know her from wearing multiple hats around the My Little Pony universe, and we're pleased as punch to have her back: please welcome GM Berrow to TrotCon 2016!

    Berrow perhaps first became known to folks in the fandom as the author of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic chapter books published by Little, Brown and Co., including "Twilght Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell," "Princess Luna and the Festival of the Winter Moon" and much more. She has since transitioned into writing for the Friendship Is Magic TV series beginning with season five.

    In addition to her work with My Little Pony, Berrow has also ghostwritten for multiple book series generally of the young adult/children's variety, and has worked as part of the crew on TV shows such as Law & Order: SVU and The Good Wife.

    She'll be making her second appearance at TrotCon; we also welcomed her in 2015, and y'all said you had a blast hanging out with her, so, you know, why mess with a good thing?

    OK, so let's run down the list now... GM Berrow, John de Lancie, Thom Zahler, Heather Breckel and Ingrid Nilson. Miss anyone? No? OK, cool.

    Oh, right, except for our amazing community guests, which is already a fairly stacked lineup in our modest opinion, including Pixelkitties, TJ Carson, ILoveKimPossibleALot, ChocoPony and Wiggles. Woo!

    Eh, what the heck, let's add three more.

    First, a double feature: welcome Jitterbug Jive/BaldDumboRat and Jestre DeRama to TrotCon 2016!

    Jitterbug Jive is the creator of the Lovestruck Derpy and Discord Whooves Tumblrs, and has been the fan voice of Derpy Hooves in multiple videos, including the popular Doctor Whooves and Assistant series. Panels? Check. Artist table? Also check. And he'll be doing it all with Jestre DeRama, who voices The Doctor in the Doctor Whooves and Assistant series and has his own list of awesome blogs, including BubbleBerryAnswers, AskMadDoctorWhooves and more.

    Additionally, we're excited to have back TheBronyCritic. The Ohio native returns to TrotCon for a fourth time, bringing along his brand of My Little Pony episode reviews, audioplays, fanfic writing and much more. This is always a favorite of ours, so you'll want to come out and see what's up.

    Whew. OK. Four guest announcements in one day. Think we'll call it quits.

    Before we leave: remember, pre-reg badges close June 25! This is your last chance to snag our $50 weekend passes; they'll be more at the door. This is also your final opportunity to get one of our sponsor badges; those will be closed come June 15. Help support TrotCon, get cool stuff in return. We even have one more of our highest tier, the draconequus badge, left, so, hey, get on that. For more information, hit up our registration page (http://trotcon.net/registration/)!
    TrotCon 2016 will be held July 15-17 at the Crowne Plaza Columbus North in Columbus, Ohio.
