I say this month is pretty well suited for our glorious batpony overlords. We really could use a banner dedicated to them. That new header just makes it so difficult to make banners fit!
Anyway, get some music, 11 in all today.
Conventions! Already the 2014 news is swarming in. Have some headlines:
BABScon Musician Press Release
Everfree Northwest - New Open Staffing Positions
Sydneigh 2014 Announced
And get the full press releases below the break!
I thought this was some computer generated Derpy at first. She looks almost unreal the way the paper lines up.
Have some craft stuff! Figures at the top, everything else at the bottom.
Derpy Hooves Papercraft - Queen of muffins
Things were in full swing by this point. The fandom was growing exponentially thanks to the loads of forum avatars and friends telling friends. You really couldn't go to a nerd oriented website without running into at least a bit of pony.
Feeling Pinkie Keen brought on some good ol' fashioned controversy! The usual discussions about how cute Twilight looked in a snow suit or what Luna's backstory was quickly turned into religious debates. While it was never the staff's intention (or Lauren's for that matter, who commented on it) to force science against belief, the blossoming fandom quickly jumped to that conclusion and storms ensued!
Outside of that though, it had some pretty great slapstick humor all around. Poor Twilight Sparkle was completely obliterated the entire time, with some good old fashioned anvil tropes and open cellars. At least she looks really good in bandages!
Oh yeah, and Derpy was derped on purpose for the first time. Suddenly we had something to look for during every episode.
Head on down below the break for some Feeling Pinkie Keen!
For a culture based around tenants of love and harmony, Equestria sure is militant! In this video, Poetess takes a look at some of the modern and ancient weaponry seen and mentioned in MLP, and ponders each of their usefulness. Check it out after the break!
The Japanese version of MLP has some pretty badass voice talent, and Discord is no slouch. They really did a great job of showing off his chaotic personality. It almost feels like a new character.
We also have the ending for season two in here for those curious about openings and endings. Get both below the break!
You and me, a magic duel~ Twilight and Trixie are at it again, this time with some much more devistating spells. Launch fireballs, black holes, parasprites, and a number of other explosive objects at each other physics style. Head on over here to play it.
IDW Is probably loving this one. The MLP Comic just hit the one million sold mark. I don't think anyone ever expected a series about cartoon horses to ever spawn something so massive. Good job supporting it everyone! Hopefully we can keep this side pony series going long into the future.
In celebration, they will be releasing a super limited variant of issue #12 with just twelve copies available. These will be given out during contests and events. I'm guessing they are going to be worth a fortune in a few years here. Good luck winning one!
Full press release over here. Thanks to everyone for sending it!
Comics! We have Pinkie being Pinkie, a parody of a song from another movie, some simple Button/Sweetie Belle stuff, and a revamp of My Little Dashie in multiple parts. Click for full!

Look at how sad poor Fluttershy is. She just wants friendship!
We have yet another animation, this time Sim Gretina's "What Your Friendship Means to Me" song from a while back. Head on down below the break to check it out!
I still haven't decided how big I want Celestia and Luna to be in my headcanon. For whatever reason, it's really difficult to envision.
Time for some early morning roundup! Blame Starcraft again. This campaign is super addictive.
