    Princess Cadance and Shining Armor in Italy!

    So where do you take a princess on her honeymoon? Well, you go all out and transcend the dimensional barrier between worlds and take her to Italy of course! A cute little Facebook page has popped up chronicling the two's visit to one of the most romantic places on Earth! Check out a snippet on some details below.

    Turns out that Shining Armor and Cadance are having their honeymoon in Italy. There is a facebook page. It’s in Italian, but here are some highlights:

    One user asks Shining Armor how the bachelor party that Spike organized was. His response: “Oh, don’t remind me: There were donuts everywhere, and at one point an enormous pot of hot chocolate was brought in and I was forced to throw myself inside. I hope nopony whips out any photos of that evening.”

    Another user called Prince Trollestia warns Shining Armor not to throw Cadance of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

    They are also on Twitter and Pinterest. They also say they are going to be on Instagram once they figure out how to use a Smartphone with hooves.

    Questing is Magic Text Based Game

    I can't be the only Zork fan in the fandom can I? I really sincerely hope not as the game mentioned here follows in the same style of text based adventure as games like Zork. Check out all the details below.

    Hello guys, I am Chriswalt. Lead developer of My Little Pony: Questing is magic. This game is a text based RPG game, kind of like Zork. It is all written in batch, and will be 100% free once finished. The downside, it only works on computers with a windows OS on it. For more information about the game, check out this thread please:

    I have also made a trailer for the game, it is not that great, but it should give a good enough visual I hope:

    Neopets and Pony?

    A curious screenshot has been sent to us showing a pet that looks very much like a certain egghead we all know and love. Knowing the influence of ponies I would not be surprised if this is a call out to our little bookworm Twilight.

    Successful Meetups

    Nova Scotia Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    The Nova Scotia Bronies celebrated their 1 year birthday this past weekend since their founding this time last year with a delightful anniversary party! After partnering up with a local independent marchants cooperative who has also given the NSB an indoor home for the chilly winter months to come (Thanks PlanB!!!! You rock! Woohoo!) A great time was had by all! One of the biggest meetups yet with about 30 in attendance! We had an afternoon of episode viewing, fan videos, food, drinks, an edge-of-your-seat intense My Little Pony Memory tournament with blind bags, figurines, art prints for winners, and a bag of G3.5 figurines for those who didn't do so well. Pony cards were traded amongst those who brought their collections, as well as an epic xbox kinect dance-off, for more prizes!
    Everyone very intensely watching The Crystal Empire 

    Afterwards, several members of the group dawned pony cosplays, to take part in the annual Parade of Lights (christmas parade) and took to the streets of Downtown Halifax to walk and wave along a 4km route to 100 000 people!! Spreading friendship and magic to all of those in attendance, extra big smiles and high fives were given especially to those kids in the crowd who braved the cold to come out of the local children's hospital to get a big taste of the holiday spirit!

    A (not particularly great) photo of our cosplayers!

    As co-founder of the Nova Scotia Bronies, I would like to thank all of those who've discovered us over the past year, and have made yourself a part of the NSB family! We hope to keep growing and spreading the magic of friendship to everyone in the province in one way or another!

    ~Sincerely yours, Midnight Aperture
