Man, I really do feel like this right now. Time to hit the hay and count some sheep! Oh, and I think I'll keep Roundups at around 10pm blog time since most of you had valid reasons why that didn't fit your schedules. Back to business as usual!
Anyhow, check out the news after the break!
Daniel Ingram has posted something up on his Facebook page giving a bit of extra information on Pinkie Pride. Head on over here to check it out, or get the quote below!
Thanks to... Twilight Sparkle for the heads up! You guys have the most original names.

Thanks to The Illustrious Q for the heads up.
Time for another swarm of fanfics! 40 of you decided to explore Pinkie Pie's journey into extra family connections, and these are the results. Head on down below for the full list of stories sorted by genre! Happy reading! Expect another event next week.
Hoity Toity plush
A pony as dapper as Hoity will settle only for the best when it comes to plushies of himself. Probably why we don't see many of them in our inbox.
Plushie time guys, check them all out after the break.
As we head into the new year a slew of pony art has already surfaced with each new episode that passes us. Amongst the onslaught are some lesser known artists that create some amazing pieces that don't get the spotlight they deserve. So, join me once again as we spread some light on some of these artists and really let them shine!
As usual, these posts are in similar style to the Tumblr Spotlights, a group of 3-4 artists will be spotlit each entry along with a small short description along with a small selection of their artwork! In order to make this feature work though we need people to suggest artists to us so make sure to send artists you think need some exposure to [email protected]. Please also include a short biography I can work with as well as what medium you work in most.
What sort of artists count? Suggestions should follow these criteria:
- No clop or extensive gore galleries as those typically violate our content guidelines. If the artist has a safe for work gallery separate from their not safe for work stuff they or their fans can submit the safe for work gallery. If there is a mix of SFW/NSFW on a gallery the decision whether or not to include them will be judged on a gallery to gallery basis.
- Don't be afraid to spotlight yourself as well as others!
- Artists of all types accepted -vector, OC, traditional, digital. As long as it is pony and of quality it has a chance of being spotlit.
As is the norm for Meghan, we have a teaser to go with our new episode this week. The quote:
Just realized I can predict the exact time some #bronies will lose their minds this Saturday. #MLPseason4
So, what do you think it is? Are we going to be seeing the return of one of our favorite characters that has been absent this season? Or is Equestria going to explode and a new series popping up? Could be anything!
Hasbro is trying it's hand at point and click adventures it looks like. A new game called "Restore the Elements of Magic was uploaded over here. It's pretty simple overall, but its official, and pony, so go play it!
Pinkie Apple Pie has been dissected and sorted out for all those juicy background songs. Rainshadow was able to grab a whopping 13 of them out of this one. You know how it works! Find them all below the break.
I have no clue what to call the genre in that first one, and unfortunately it wasn't submitted with one, so just go roll some dice! It's a pretty crazy one.
We also have two orchestral tracks to follow it if that isn't your thing. Get them all below!
1.) In Your Dust (Vocal)
2.) Radiarc - Monarch (Instrumental - Orchestral)
3.) Citric Acid - From the Earth to the Sky (Instrumental - Orchestral)
Pinkie has a huge reason to celebrate because we now have an exclusive look at the Weird Al episode thanks to USA Today! Check out the clip after the break as well as an extended synopsis for the episode!
Thanks to everyone for sending it in!
[Dark] A spectacularly handled, immensely engaging ride. This is what fiction looks like when the story carries the reader. Pre-reader Seattle
