Some of you wanted Derpy and Doctor Whooves, well have them and some more! Now onwards to a rather short roundup tonight. Afterwards we can hit the hay or get going with our days depending on where you are in the world.
Seeya tomorrow everyone! Oh, and I fixed the numbering on the Roundups so we should be back to the normal count now.
Sombra may be an underdeveloped character, but was he a bad antagonist? In this video, Texeirax explores the idea that Sombra's possibly, "lawful evil," alignment makes him a more compelling villain than first thought. Check the video out after the break (though be warned: it has a lot of swearing in it).

Description: After another stunt gone wrong, Rainbow finds herself cooped up in a hospital room again. But when she ends up getting roomed with a nine-year-old colt, her stay at Ponyville General takes a turn that's worth just a little more than reading a book about an archaeologist.For Every Answered Prayer

Now that is one heck of a sculpture! It almost looks like Chrysalis here popped right out of a video game or something. You've got to be impressed by the amount of work that must have gone into making this turn out just perfectly.
Hey all, some crafts coming your way for today!
Ponies in the Media: Global News - Toronto on Ponies / Huffington Post Pony Resume / Tara Strong Heading to TableTopby Sethisto

The guys at TableTop on Youtube have Tara Strong on next week. I'll post that video when it pops up, but for now, you can find the announcement video, as well as TableTop's Youtube channel here.
Thanks to everyone that sent all of these in!

The official #10 comic released yesterday, and as always, we got the swarms of links for you all to go track it down with! Luna fans (so the entire fandom) should probably go pick it up.
And as promised:

Meghan McCarthy recently tweeted a series of responses to a question about how canon Equestria Girls was in respect to the Friendship is Magic universe. The simple simple response? EQG did happen, Twilight learned a lesson, but it will not effect the future of the actual show. Until Twilight falls in love with her new offically pointed bodyguard, Flash Sentry, you don't need to freak out (or if our inbox is any indication, you can stop freaking out!).
Onward to the discussion! We have seen loads of fan projects throughout the years that build their own canon in relation to the universe of pony. The best example of this is Luna. We had a 10+ months to mold her personality in any way we chose, with everything from sad lonely Luna to the trolly and silly. A poll we did back in September or 2012 (post official Luna) revealed how much the majority of you have stuck to her fanon interpretation, with Gamer Luna completely dominating.
So how important is canon to all of you content creators, normal fans, and super hardcore "raise the pitchforks" fans? In a show that can completely change it wildly between seasons, what does it mean to you?
Twilight is always so enthusiastic about new things that it is just adorable. Can't wait to see her spazzing out some more when the new season starts in a couple months!
Comics guys, click for full as always.
Scootaloo is the best punk rock pony. Song #1 has a whole boatload of musicians behind it, as you can see from the banner above. This fandom needs more of this genre. It always brings back those good ol' childhood memories.
Track #2 is an electronic one from a new guy, because android ponies need love too. Just look at Sweetie Bot. We wouldn't want her going rogue now would we?

Description: “Most pegasi figure out flying easily enough. Heck, most of them figureLight The Sky On Fire
out how to do it before they even get their cutie marks.
“But not me. I couldn’t do it, no matter how hard I tried. I couldn’t
even hover. Not for more than a few seconds, anyway. And not even Rainbow
Dash, the greatest flier in Equestria, could seem to help me. We tried
everything, and I failed every time. Day after day, I tried – and day
after day, I failed, until finally even I was ready to just give up. I’d
never be able to do it. Nopony would ever be able to help me to fly...
“...until the day someone did.”

We Love Find has added two new pony scarves, and three Equestria Girls shirts to go with them. It's going to be interesting to see how well EQG does as a shirt line. Find them here!
Behold, the glory of the sun! Shining ever brighter, Celestia takes on new forms to shine her countenance down upon you! Transformation is a part of life, and whether that means you become a princess or a firebird or even a badass pony luchador, in the end it's often for the better. We have reached the end of another week; can you feel yourself changing yet? Don't be shy, I bet you'd be surprised. Today was another great chance to show off some creativity, and another case where you all knocked it out of the park. All told, another 309 ponies and things that might once or never have been ponies showed up at our front door, bring the grand event total to a fantastic and astonishing 5812 images! This means we have officially surpassed the year 1 final tally less than halfway through the event! Just... wow. Never doubt your power again.
How's everybody feeling? Still going strong, or are you starting to get a little bit tired? It's ok if you are, I think that's pretty natural after two weeks of such an intense event like this one. This space in our gallery posts is reserved for reminders, and today's is an important one: don't get mad at yourself if you miss a day for whatever reason. It doesn't mean you're out, and it doesn't mean anybody will think any less of you. If it happens, dust yourself off and give it another go!
But today is all about changes! We've got pokemon and majora's mask references to go with our alicornifications and changelings galore. A solid snake or two does the trick, to sneak on in and see what else is going on inside. It's transformation central! Reformation Central Transmogrification Central! You're changing, you're changing, you're changing all right! I hope you're satisfied... but if you ain't! Don't blame me! You can blame my friends on the other side. Ensuing voodoo, darkness, and blowing out of finger smoke.
....Right then! Let's set our black magics and our references aside for long enough to give you guys a prompt! It's a new week with new lessons, in the great ocean of artistic endeavors, where sometimes things can feel a tad overwhelming. Idea! Let's give a voice to that and head out on a voyage. Today, Draw a pony lost at sea/Draw a pony drifting. Submit all entries here by 11:59 PM, Pacific time (that's United States west coast, all you folks from out of country!) on Thursday, August 29. Keep a weather eye on the horizon!
