I heard some calls for Iron Will over the past few days so how about a Wind Waker version of the minotaur? Gotta say, the Wind Waker style works pretty well for him!
Time for news! Check after the break for the full scoop.
You've all done me PROUD, everypony! Well done!
Sorry, it's a good song. So! Memorial Day has come and gone. And there are a whopping TWENTY FOUR entries for this! Hoo rah, my brothers and sisters!
Here's all the entrants, sorted by *PRIMARY* genre tag. This will NOT be alphabetical. Expect edits to this post. Some of the writers had extenuating circumstances this week. Travel, a death in the family... yeah. Tricky stuff this week. Hit the break for story listings and next event information, recruits!
A computer virus has infected everything, the first of it's kind to travel via sun rays. All video games in existence have been completely ponified. Cloud wields a giant sword via his mouth, Kratos is a unicorn, and Tetris has ponies in different poses as blocks. Literally nothing survived the onslaught, your favorite game included. How does this effect it? Is the introduction of unicorn magic and controllable weather something that throws your best game of all time completely off balance?
Hit the comments up with how your game now works with hooves, horns, and wings, as opposed to whatever it originally used!
So you want to make the ultimate original character, with power levels that would make Twilight Sparkle run for the hills? One so excellently designed, that Lauren Faust will personally fly down and give you a hug at the mere sight of it? Have a tutorial after the break!
We start off with a bit of good ol' country music collaboration between Tsyolin, EileMonty, and Haymaker, followed by two instrumental orchestral tracks! Check them both out below the break!
1.) Haymaker & Tsyolin ft. EileMonty - Honesty
2.) Radiarc - Shadows of the Lightning
3.) Baschfire: Conflicting Ideals (Pony RPG music)

An excellent new animatic for Lullaby for a Princess has been released by Warpout on Youtube. The potential here is epic! He needs some background artists though. Hit the Youtube description for information if you are interested. Everyone else, go drool over it after the break.
Our European friends just keep ramping up the excitement this summer as GalaCon announces not only a Bronies for Good Art Gallery but a charity auction event as well! Looks like there will not be a shortage of things to do at GalaCon 2013!
Check after the break for the full details!
It looks like a charity event is planned tomorrow for both Bronies for Good and Traveling Pony Museum. Their announcement explains it all well enough! Head on down below the break to check it out.
I think we all agree that one of MLP's greatest strengths is its character-based comedy bits. In this video, SpikeyWikey breaks down all of the subtle jokes in The Ticket Master and talks about why he loves them. If you don't like having jokes explained to you, this video isn't for you—but I for one find it fascinating to see a breakdown of what makes someone laugh. Video after the break!
Why are you even surprised Luna?
Thanks to Fishinpro for the heads up.
Sold for toys, then forgotten the second another alicorn comes around =[
Ponify everything. Find them all below!
1.) Ponycraft 2: Vengeance
2.) Hairy Trotter and the Deathly Shadows Part 2 (Official Troller)
3.) Fast & Harmonious 6 (Fast 6/My Little Pony Mashup)
I'm a pony of my word so have some Sea Swirl tonight for the header! It's a shame there is such little art of her out there. Maybe that will change one day!
Anyhow, time for the news guys! Check it after the break.
We have a whole bunch of random merch for you all this time around, the first of which coming from Enterplay via a few new binders for the card sets, and dog tags. Each of these were teased in the series 2 tins that have been popping up around the USA lately. Thanks to Micheal for the images!
And below the break, the rest of the Random Merch! Go check it all out!
Discord has grown bored with his new "good guy" persona, and decided to randomly corrupt a few ponies for fun, six in total.
How would this play out though? That's up to you! Pick six non mane-cast ponies and throw them a big ol' heap of DISCORD. How do they cope with their newfound personalities? And what do they do to cure eachother?
Hit the comments up with your ideas!
Yep, another one in this crazy series of videos. Pinkie seems to be one of the most common names used in the show. I remember when I was embarrassed to even say it during the early days of pony. Twilight Sparkle shared the same stigma though.
Check it out below the break!
Tumblr Spotlight: Jumped Out Pinkie Answers / The Alicorn Chronicles / Ask Pun Pony / The Pony Spotlight!by Calpain
Hey again everyone! I hope you all are well and that you're ending the month of May healthy and well. This afternoon I've once again got a bushel of tumblrs hand picked from the tumblr orchard for you all and we've got some juicy ones this time around!
As always, if you have a tumblr you would like to share, whether it is your own or someone elses, please make sure to send it my way at [email protected] for review and filing. Now, on to the tumblrs!
We start this one off with an excellent vocal track based on The Life and Times of a Winning Pony and finish with more glorious orchestral dedicated to Princess Moonbutt. Head on down below the break to check them both out!

2.) Redemption (By TheDashDub)
You’re far too intelligent and trusting to believe in things like the Illuminati, aren’t you? A secret group of individuals- or perhaps a single person posing as a group- controlling everything you know behind the scenes, twisting reality to suit their equally twisted needs. Chemtrails, weather balloons, and swamp gas. If your best friend came to you with these kinds of accusations about something, you’d likely comment on their newfound appreciation for aluminum-based headgear. The world just doesn’t work that way. You’re sure of it! It would be far too distressing to consider otherwise.
Well, get ready to be distressed, because some worlds work out a little more conveniently for some ponies than others- ponies with a bent for power and the will to seize it. Ponies that you would never suspect would do things like...
As many of you have already pointed out, the fourth installment of the micro-series was released yesterday, with Fluttershy taking center stage. Hopefully most of you have received your copies by now. If not, you can grab it at the links below:

Thanks to Nayuki who works on MLP and can be found over on the Allspark forums, we now know the reason why the official MLP guidebook names Cloudchaser as Stormwalker! According to Nayuki, both are technically right due to some interesting circumstances:
"I know you guys have moved past Hurricane Fluttershy already, but there is something being discussed on other fansites that I'd like to clear up.
"The Elements of Harmony" an official MLP guidebook is coming out soon and people have been discussing a naming issue that has appeared in a photo of one of the pages:
As you can see here, Cloudchaser is listed as being named Stormwalker. Many people are assuming the book is in error, which isn't really the case. I was one of the artists directly involved in the mix up, so I figure I can clear it up a bit.
The name for the pegasus in our files at the studio is in fact Stormwalker, so how did she become Cloudchaser in the show? Well, in the script for Hurricane Fluttershy, there was both a Cloudchaser and Stormwalker. Stormwalker was cut before storyboards, and Cloudchaser was never designed. The storyboard artists used the Stormwalker design in the scenes where Cloudchaser was in the script and I posed them out in layout.
So yeah, the show and book are both right. Weird."
Interesting, eh? You can find the source for this information here.

Comics! We have a bit of nudity in the first one, but I think you guys can handle it. The third is the second in a two parter, so read the others before diving into that one. Everything else is pretty standard! Click for full.
I've got a surprise for you all tonight! Now that you all have pelted me with stones of various sizes and hardness let's dig into the news tonight. Sort of short, but that fits Surprise's attention span just fine I think!
