• Nightly Roundup #935

    I saw this lovely picture of Silver Spoon and just had to use it tonight. She does look lovely when not sneering at other ponies. Why not Applejack? Well, that is where you guys come in! We're trying a different kind of voting tonight! For tomorrow night I'm looking for an AJ/Apple Family pic for the header and I want you guys to suggest one. Leave a link in your comment and whoever gets the highest votes will have that pic used as the header (as long as it is clean).

    At any rate, check out the news after the break!

  • Music of the Day #287

    What started this boop thing? Which one of you is to blame? Poking noses surely didn't come from a human thing.

    Get some music below to jog your memory.

  • Drawfriend Stuff #1120

    Welp, Applejack is almost best pony after the episode today.  Don't say I never said that. Have a header with her being even more best.

  • Fanfic Spotlight: Telling Tales

    This is cool enough for Canterlot, go away

    So long as we're continuing to turn the fanfic mill on EqD, now's probably a good time to reintroduce a feature we've neglected for a couple of months by now. Fortunately for these features, I don't have to do a thing aside from plug them here!

    Several of the EqD pre-readers have teamed up with other long-running fic authorities to form the Royal Canterlot Library, a project dedicated to identifying and promoting the better, if not best, stories this fandom has to offer. Instead of waiting for authors to submit their stories as Equestria Daily does, the RCL curators go out and find fics to recommend on their own. Between our two organizations, we can attack the problem of separating the wheat from the chaff on both ends.

    Keep tabs on their blog every Friday if you're looking for a finer sieve of fic than what we offer here. If you're a newer writer in need of advice, then definitely check them out -- an in-depth Q&A session with the fic's author accompanies every feature they publish. In the meantime, we'll be cross-posting their articles here every Wednesday and Saturday until we're all caught back up with the times.

    This was a lot of words. Head over here to read and comment on their latest feature with James Washburn's "Telling Tales", or hit the break instead!

  • Story: The Terrifying Prospect of Swans in Love


    Author: Fedora Mask
    Description: Twilight Sparkle has always loved Celestia--as a friend, and a mentor, and something else as well. And she finally, finally found the courage to admit those feelings.

    Celestia turned her down as gently as she could. That's what she thought, anyway.

    But the night is still young--and it's a night for being wrong.

  • Livestream Saturdays and Drawfriend

    Now that was an AJ episode! I really hope we get a bunch of art of best Apple Family. Livestreams guys, check them out!

    Apparently Livestream is being a little derpy today for most streamers. Some channels might have technical difficulties.

    As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at [email protected] with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.

  • EquestriaBound - An Earthbound Hack

    Earthbound has always been one of my favorite games. I still fondly remember when I was in 2nd grade getting that huge box it came in and reading the heck out of the strategy guide that came with it. I occasionally come back to play the game and it's just as good as the first time I played it.

    But now, I have another reason to play the game through again with this amazing ROM hack from Rydel of the Starmen.net forums! I was a bit skeptical at first when I downloaded it earlier today, but I've got to say this is a class act redo of a classic starring all of our favorite ponies. With a nice twist of humor, redone graphics, music, script, and events to match the world of Equestria Earthbound is brand new again!

    So join the adventures of Dinky, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo as they first the great nightmare that has descended on their land.

    Check after the break for some screenshots I took while I was testing it out as well as links to where you can download it.

    Update from Rydel: I've located some bugs and fixed them.  One of the bugs could be game breaking if you encounter it.

    I have released an updated version which fixes the issue (the links are the same).  Updating is highly recommended. When updating, you will need to use a normal save to keep your progress through the update, not a save state.
    Also, users using the patch will need to patch a fresh rom, not apply the new patch over the old one.
  • This Episode!

    The best of Applejack!

    And Lyra.
