Been awhile since we had a Vinyl Scratch header! Party on down with her while you check out the news and chill out in the comments below.
Hope you guys had a good weekend! Seeya all tomorrow.
Sweetie Belle was invaded by Luna and the world didn't end for Rarity. What did the analysis community think of such a plot? What do you think of the plot a day later? Head on down below to check them out and see who you agree with, if any!
Description: Sometimes you have to laugh, so you don't have to cry. Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich may have more in common than they thought, including Ponyacci, the greatest clown in all of Equestria. But when Pinkie Sense and Cheesy Sense combine, it sends them on a journey to throw the worst party of their lives. --Takes place immediately after the events of Pinkie Pride and incorporates the IDW Pinkie Pie micro-comic.Swear on Camembert

This is amazing. We've already put three months' worth of WTG events behind us by now. In that time, all of you have submitted 428 different stories covering genres from slice of life to sci-fi and everything in between! If I have time later on, I'll try and prepare a breakdown of all the fics we've received for this project so far.
Meanwhile, go ahead and pat yourself on the back for sticking with this event for so long, even if you've only submitted once! I hope that most of you are getting something worthwhile out of this event. Have there been any awesome stories you've read coming out of the WTG in the past? Go ahead and share them in the comments, and let their authors feel loved.
In the meantime, new episode, new prompts! Hit the break to see what you're writing about this week.
This preview image doesn't look like much, but it belongs to a touching animatic. At around five minutes long this promises to be an amazing animation if it is finished. Great work artist, you made this pony tear up a bit by the end.
Check it out here and give the artist some feedback!

Now if only she could convince him that she's not in his imagination...

Bad news for some of you. While you were slumbering away dreaming about whatever, Luna just happened to be floating around above it with a bag of popcorn. She saw your entire dream! That embarrassing event where you had no pants in front of the entire school, or your journey to candy mountain are now known to Equestrias #1 princess.
So, what did she catch you dreaming about? Hit those comments up! How will you try to explain yourself to her?
"I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice. Hmm?" Luna said. "Tumbling down the rabbit hole?"
"You could say that," Sweetie replied, still looking around for an exit. She'd never heard of any place in Equestria like this one, nor could she imagine how it might exist. That meant this had to be a dream, right?
"I see it in your eyes," Luna said. "You have the look of a mare who accepts what she sees because she is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth."
Sweetie Belle looked up. The look in Luna's eyes was immense, as if Sweetie Belle was at once the most important and most insignificant thing she'd ever seen.
"Do you believe in fate, Sweetie Belle?" Luna asked.
"No," Sweetie told her.
"Because..." Sweetie scuffed her hoof against what she supposed was the ground. "Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life."
Luna nodded, and though her face never betrayed an expression, a hint of a smile tugged at the corners of her lips. "I know exactly what you mean," she said. Luna swiveled on her hooves and began to pace, steering herself in a slow circle around Sweetie Belle. "Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me."
Luna reached Sweetie Belle's front again and stopped. She never turned towards her, but Sweetie could tell she was watching her all the same. "Do you know what I'm talking about?"
"The Matrix?" Sweetie Belle guessed.
"Do you want to know what it is?"
Luna's lips twitched again. "The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very space. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your radio. You can feel it when you go to school... when you go to your clubhouse... when you play with your friends. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."
Sweetie Belle bit her lip and swallowed hard. It felt like some of the white space around her had seeped into her chest. "What truth?"
Finally, Luna faced her again. "That the Matrix has you, Sweetie Belle. That it's time to wake up."My name is Aquaman, this is the "For Who The Sweetie Belle Toils" episode followup, and seriously, get your lazy asses up. It's like three in the afternoon over here. Let's boot up this sucker up.
Time to take a break from all that electronic stuff! We have an excellent acoustic track to start it off dedicated to Fluttershy, followed by a genre I don't think I have seen more than once in all these years of pony music. Swing needs to happen more. Get them both below!
1.) 4everfreebrony - In The End (Vocal - Acoustic)
2.) Forever And A Day - Original by Arturo Fonseca (Vocal - Swing Ballad)
Moonbutt fans rejoice! Over the past few days, loads of people have spotted the new Luna card game tin all over the place. Most of these appear to be popping up at Walmart currently, though someone mentioned picking one up at Hot Topic (I can't seem to confirm that though after a call).
Included in the box, you will find both a Luna promo card and booster pack for the MLP CCG, as well as a collectable card for the usual series and three boosters to go with it. They also include the poster, and a checklist on the back for the collectors out there.
Thanks to Micheal and Loaded Dice for the images, and everyone else for the heads up!
The 10th wave of Blindbag ponies was revealed at Toy Fair, and chances are we will be seeing them invade everywhere soon if they haven't started already. If you like your ponies glittery, this is apparently the set for you.
Strawberry Reef has a full listing of them minus the Pinkie Pie. I think you all know what she looks like though. Find it at the bottom over here! Thanks to Luna for the tip.
