Spike header for tonight because Spike needs love too! Besides Twilight Sparkle I think I'd enjoy spending some time with Spike. He seems like a fun guy.
Well, time for the Roundup guys! Get the news after the break and happy April Fools! You won't see much of me tomorrow I think, I'm not really that funny so the other guys will keep you entertained. Seeya later!
This makes me want to plug in my old SNES and play some classic Mario 3. Good times.
We have nine songs today, finally taking a break from that spree of 15 per post we went through. Get them below!
Archie, one of the fandom's premier musicians, is currently in bad shape and friends of his are holding a fundraiser to help pay his medical bills. What exactly is going on? Well, Archie is currently suffering from a kidney infection as well as a cyst that has been discovered to be growing near collar bone that could threaten his brain by pushing against it or by even popping.
Archie has given us a lot of excellent music over the years so if you can donate at all please head here for more information on what is going on as well as a link to the page where you can donate.
Curious as to who Archie is? Check out here and here for some examples of his work.
[Dark] "A heart-wrenching look at sisters, memory and immortality that left me in tears." -Pre-Reader Noir Voice
Description: What does it mean to be immortal? Celestia has lived for too long. Her memories are old. She has seen many ponies, and many places, and many times, and many stars, and many dreams. She wakes one night to find she does not know the ponies and the stars of today from the ponies and the stars of any other day she has lived. She no longer knows what was real and what was only dreamed.Where Have the Stars Gone?
She desperately searches for the one pony she knows could not have been a dream.

Comic: About Rainbow Power / Keys and Coins / There... I Fixed It / Flim's New Plan / Equestria Storiesby Sethisto
Rainbow powers, and Trixies, and coins being coined, its comic time. That last one is a multiparter, so be sure to hit the description up to continue it.
We need cities like Canterlot in real life. I want to live on the side of a giant spire style mountain. What gives technology? Why isn't this the norm?
Get some art below!
Behind the city of the Rulers
Rarity PMV's are always interesting. It has been a while since we posted one dedicated completely to her. Cereal would be proud. Get that and some Paper Sky below!
1.) [PMV] Cake - Short Skirt Long Jacket
2.) Paper Sky (PMV)
Electronic music! It's everywhere in this one. Vinyl Scratch needs her moment in spotlight posts at least a few times a month I guess! If this is your genre, get both below!
1.) iPon-3 (Vylet Remix) | DJ Pon-3 | Explicit (Instrumental - Dubstep)
2.) ND - At the Rift [Fallout: Equestria's album PATHS] (Instrumental - Electronic)
With the secret re-opening of Starswirl's portal happening deep within the caves behind Canterlot, a new research mission has been commissioned by the Royal Society of Explorers. For those of you that haven't been following the comic, this one allows you to travel to other worlds while remaining a pony. Unfortunately due to a limit on the energy available at the moment while Twilight figures out how the thing fully works, only one pony will be able to pass through and return safely.
As an ambassador who has been contacted via a cross-dimension communication spell, you have been picked to choose which pony it will be out of these five: Rarity, Twilight, Lyra, Trixie, or Celestia. Why only those? Because it requires a horn to help channel, and they just happened to be doing various things at the castle when Celestia cracked the portal code!
It's official, EQLA is shutting down. We would like to thank the fans, our volunteers, and the show staff for 2 wonderful conventions!
— Equestria LA (@EquestriaLA) March 31, 2014
A sad day for convention goers as EQLA shuts its doors. As some of you may remember they went on hiatus months ago, but have now decided to end their run. Still, great work EQLA team! Thanks for bringing us all two awesome conventions.
And before you ask, this is not an April Fools joke.

Description: (NOTE: This is not a ship-fic. No romance here, just somepony trying to cheer up her friend. Move along. Nothing to see here...)Look Up
Based on the scene at the very end of "The Last Roundup": Pinkie Pie and Rarity are left stranded in the Badlands, their long and agonizing journey home requiring them to spend a night alone in the desert. It is here that the latter discovers a painful secret hidden beneath her friend's constant cheerful demeanor.
Despite not being the one famous for bringing a smile to everypony's face wherever she goes, the exhausted (and most unacceptably filthy) fashionista does everything in her power to make her happy again...

For all you people that love building that pony music collection, RainShadow has extracted all of the background music, as well as various versions of the new Flim Flam Miracle Curative Tonic song to remix as you wish. Head on down below the break to check them all out, or hit the playlist up.

Must be tiring for ponies to translate all of their adventures into all those different languages. At least our equines are multilingual now!

For all you people with easy access to shipping from Amazon.co.uk, the famosa line plushies are starting to pop up over there. It looks like stock is extremely limited, but I'm sure they will flood in once again if demand is there. Head on over here if you want them!
And thanks to Tsfdeymos for the heads up.
Traditional art AJ for the win! With 48 upvotes this one was the winner! Thanks for participating guys, AJ is certainly happy to have all the attention.
Now on to the news folks! Check it out after the break.
Pegasus and alicorns really do look like ducks if you take away the legs.
We have another day of tons of music. Quite a bit coming in lately. Get it all below!
And as another weekly reminder, please include a genre. A lot of these are lacking them.
Holy cow, when you guys go all out you go all out! In another example of this fandom amazes the crap out of me we have this absolutely massive mosaic poster made completely out of beads. How many beads? Almost 1 million beads to make this roughly 2 meter high and 3 meter long which took a year and a half to make and almost $1000 in materials.
Kudos to you creator! This post is for you because you certainly do deserve it! Please pay them a visit at their dA page linked below and leave a comment. They really deserve it.
Giant Mosaic Bead Poster
Another GIANT Drawfriend! I don't know where you all find the time to do this crazy amount of art. Lets start it with Celestia, since she is technically the biggest pony and that totally fits.
Those things are kinda creepy!
TIME FOR WAR. Some liked it, others didn't. Who do you agree with? Who do you want to send angry emails to? Don't send them to me. I'm just the messanger!
It's weird how fast the analysis community grew. Seeing them slowly convert over to loads of custom animations and effects is a good thing.
Now go get them below!
Like I could say no to a "Neighrvana" reference this week. Anyone coming off of ECCC this weekend? How were things up in the Emerald City? Miss the place a ton.
Anyway, with Seth asserting earlier today who best pony was all along, there's not a whole lot left for me to say here. You're a writer, you've got prompts, go find 'em beneath the break!
For those following the Elements of Brony series, the next episode in line has been released, covering everything from Micheal Morones to the typical MLP stereotypes peolpe face every day. Head on down below for both parts!
Description: On Hearth’s Warming Eve, the reluctant Night Guard Pumpernickel has been assigned an escort mission in the northern part of Equestria that will take him away from his wife, friends and family for all of the night.Escort Flight
And he will remember it forever.
Based on the long standing tradition of the U.S. Air Force escorting Santa Claus on Christmas Eve to ensure his flight across North America is unhindered. Starting in 1955 by way of a wrong number, it has grown into an international program where the nations of the world unite in a spirit of peace and friendship for one night. You can track the jolly old reindeer by way of the Norad Tracks Santa website. Even though it does not show Equestria, all good little colts and fillies can be assured that Luna’s Night Guard are hard at work on this special night.

We start off with a Twilight inspired chillstep piece, followed by a bit of WAR in the second slot, and the third one is sort of a comic dub/parody with much less strict music requirements than usual here. It's fun though, and fun is the first requirement! Get all below!
1.) Twilight (Silence in Ponyville) (Instrumental - Orchestral/Chillstep)
2.) Kyoga - Of Greater Horizons (VIP) (Instrumental - War Theme)
3.) Queen Trixie the Great (Vocal - Parody)
WOAH, I'm actually doing an Applejack episode followup. How the hay did that happen?
Yes good citizens of Equestria Daily, I do have a bad reputation when it comes to Ponyville's #1 applebucker. In fact, before this episode, I was never much of a fan of the apple family in general. Good ol' country livin' and ancient tradition just ain't my style. She and her apple loving kin always seemed a bit bland in my book. We have rainboomer, adorkable super mage, partiespartiesparties, crazy cat lady, and heart attack bait stealing the spotlight. I just didn't have room for her!
NO MORE THOUGH. Applejack has been redeemed! Why, for a good two or three hours yesterday she even hit the very top of my best pony tier list! I never thought that would happen, just like I never thought I'd be up until 7am doing a giant post about cartoon horses. Life sure is crazy. But also reliable. Like GLORIOUS Applejack. So Reliable. All the time. Best Pony.
Enough blabbering. Go get some standout stuff below the break with a bunch of screenshots! You earned it. Do it for Applejack.
Ponies sing zelda stuff? Works for me! If you like YTPMV's and Zelda, that first one is awesome. Song of Storms still brings back the nostalgia bombs.
We also have a bit of Derpy and some Kirby 64. Get them all below!
1.) Song of Ponies [YTPMV]
2.) Derpy's Po Pi Po [YTPMV]
3.) Pinkie Pirby 64 - Shiver Star [YTPMV]
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)
Number one is a multi parter, so be sure to click the pages in the description!
The others are your usual crossovery/luna fair. Lots of Luna. So much Luna.
Here is one that came completely out of nowhere. A new easter display for the Funrise plushies has added both Trixie and Derpy, along with a whole bunch of rainbowy maned mane six and current funrise favorites. With the holiday right around the corner, chances are these will be popping up at Walmarts and Targets all over the place soon. Now we just need to get them some hats!
Thanks to Micheal for the heads up.
