• Nightly Roundup #539

    Welcome everyone to another edition of the Nightly Roundup! Yeah, I know we didn't have one last night, but when you have only five items to roundup at 4am in the morning, you know it's time to give up and go to bed.

    Tonight thankfully we have enough for a healthy dose of pony news! So check on after the break to get your pony on so to speak.

    Hearth's Warming Care Package Update!

    It's that time of year for giving and in usual fashion, Bronies walked up to the plate and scored a home run! Thanks to all of you that participated, the care package has been completed and sent off to families in need. Check out all the details below!

    As of today, the Hearth's Warming Care Package is proud to announce that the project is complete and the package is in the mail to Kiki and the Havivy family. We'd like to thank all who participated and aided the project for making it such a success.

    Special congratulations to the winners of our fanfiction contest. Our grand prize went to Pav Feira's story "Pinkie Pie's Balloons", which was fully illustrated for the anthology of stories sent to the family. The illustrated story, as well as all the other entries in the anthology, are available to download (.pdf) at the following link: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?xvfulvqkdq1120j 

    We wish the Havivy family a Happy Hearth's Warming and hope they enjoy the package. As always, if you would like to give to the Havivy family, please visit their website at http://giveforward.com/supportkikiscancerfund.

    We look forward to working on another care package next year. If you'd like to be a part, or know a way to improve the project, we'd love your help. Contact us at [email protected]

    Happy Hearth's Warming to all!

    The Alicorn Amulet

    Trixie acquired the Alicorn Amulet, but aside from giving her vast powers (eclipsing even Twilight Sparkle), it also made her "weirder and weirder."  (It's hard to tell if her distrust of wheels is pre or post evil magic artifact).  Also, are there police in Equestria, let alone Ponyville?  Just why are age and time spells so much more difficult than other magics?  What about summoning spells?

    Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy give eachother a "look," and we are convinced that Pinkie Pie never returned from the mirror universe.

    Successful Meetups

    Chicago Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    On December 16, over sixty bronies gathered in Chicago for the Midwest Brony Division's Hearth's Warming Celebration. There was everything from food to party games to ornament making to a live band playing Winter Wrap Up. We also held contests for ugly sweaters and pony costumes, and our winner received a Twilight Sparkle pinata filled with My Little Pony fruit snacks. At the end of the event, we raffled off a beautiful Sweetie Belle plushie, and raised over $300 in tickets, which we sent to Kiki Havivy.

    Happy Hearth's Warming from The Midwest Brony Division!
    Bristol Bronies Meetup

    Copy Paste:

    Tonight, the Bristol Bronies once more, crawled the streets of
    Bristol, in their seven member strong group. This meet, was lead by
    FireSparkle, who, while keeping all members organised and to some
    schedule, ended up having the group split, on more than one occasion.
    Along with gifts of donuts, supplied by NeonPixel, one of the groups
    avid audiophiles, the band of Bronies managed to reach the destination
    of Forbidden Planet. Once the 'booty' had been 'plundered', and tails
    of the glorious cargo of pony related items the shop will be stocking
    in the next few months were told, and other talk of interesting
    things. A large number of Subway toasted, and untoasted, sandwiches
    were eaten. Thus ending the meet.
