Derpy had become a staple in the find-the-easter-egg game people played when a new episode was aired. She usually wasn't difficult to spot, and it was a joy when you did- the show staff apparently loved her as much as we did, and almost everyone enjoyed the subtle nods, but it was always exactly that: subtle. This episode completely broke that practice by including a fully animated and voiced version of Derpy, played by none other than Tabitha St. Germain, to start the plot train rolling for Applejack's trip away from Ponyville.
The reaction was instantaneous and incredible. Rooms streaming the episode were flooded with people wondering if they had indeed heard Rainbow Dash pronounce that name correctly. Whatever else happened episode-wise in the few minutes after that was lost in the excitement.
What happened in the days after is still disputed. As far as we are aware, an undetermined source contacted The Hub with the complaint that Derpy's portrayal in her scene was offensive to those with mental disabilities. This claim was made in spite of the fact that the episode's writer, Amy Keating Rogers, has a son who is similarly disabled, and is an advocate for the disabled. Regardless, the episode was promptly pulled from the iTunes repository and only reappeared some time later with an edited version of that scene to remove the mention of Derpy's name, to change her voice, and to correct her cross-eyed appearance.
Despite the fallout stemming from her first- and likely last- scene, Derpy Hooves has since been fully embraced by companies contracted by Hasbro to produce merchandise for the show. Far from being erased from history, the grey pegasus lives on in trading cards, vinyl figures, and clothing. She even made several (tiny) cameos in the finale of season three. News of her death, it appears, has been greatly exaggerated.
Be sure to catch The Last Rounderp, in its unedited original form, after the break.
The background ponies have hopped on in this version of Canterlot Defense. For those that played the old one, it's a path style Tower Defense game with multiple unis capable of doing various effects. Added in this one are super abilities and buff ponies that make other towers stronger. Head on over to Futzi01's Deviant Art to play it!

With season 4 just a few weeks away, and hype hitting an all time high after this massive pony drought, there are a lot of expectations for our favorite characters in the coming season. In the last 8 months, things have slowed down to a crawl, but that doesn't mean a ton of significant things and fandom shifting events didn't happen. We saw a huge rise in fanfiction, a bunch of homebrew animations, and while art, music, and video have taken a huge dive with the lack of new characters to draw and songs to remix, the really good stuff had a ton of room to breathe without the swarm bearing down on it.
So without further adieu, I give you our top 5 things we want to see in season 4, completely spoiler free! Check them out below the break, and feel free to drop yours in the comments.
After a long wait, the radio play of FOE is finally here!
In 2011, a new fanfiction was introduced to the brony community. Crossing the saccharine world of ponies with the brutality of the Fallout universe, it was unlike anything anyone had read before.By the story’s completion that same year, it had spawned an entire new branch of the fandom, inspiring a number of fanfics based in the same continuity. And now comes a contribution to bronies everywhere from the Equestrian Broadcasting Company, taking the wondrous world of this fanfiction and bringing it to life in the form of a radio play.Welcome to the first episode of the radio play adaptation of “Fallout: Equestria”.http://www.ponyvillelive.com/

All of these Animal Crossing comics just makes me want to dive into the game even more. Unfortunately doing so would probably make me a hermit, wasted away with a 3DS in my hand because I forgot to eat.
Anyhow, comics folks! Click for full!

A while back, there was a kickstarter campaign for chibi figurines specifically targeted at tabletop games. Ponies were up for grabs, and the fandom raided it. This is the result. Right now four base figures are up, including two unicorns, one earth, and a firey mane nightmare. They also have accessories, including firey hooves, wings, tentacles, and a hat. Head on over to their Chibi adventurers section for all of them.
Thanks to Jason for the heads up.
