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!

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!

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...

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