Hopefully you all had fun at the Canterlot Nights pre-release events. We have more meetups and tournaments for you all to invade with your newfound skills though!
And if you want to submit one, follow the template! We will not accept any that do not use it, so get to it! Quick!
Get the usual stuff below!
Looks like Twilight Sparkle took it this time around. I was personally leaning more toward Rainbow Dash or Fluttershy myself though. Dash had the most over-the-top mane of them all.
A few days ago we ran a discussion post gathering things people wanted to see in the upcoming 5th season. These are some of the choices that came up that people seemed to be interested in. Find it on the side bar!
It looks like pony is once again making the news rounds. Two in particular released some reasonably fun articles to spotlight the pony world, one in video form, the others in news print. Have some links:
Over on PIX11, a psychologist popped on to help explain why a group of adults is obsessed with this show to someone who was a bit confused of the entire concept of it. Everyone from Ari and conventions to EQD itself get a mention.
Metro Newspaper Article:
And over in the UK, Metro did a segment on the fandom as a whole. The newspaper version of it can be found above, but they do have a shorter one over here online.
Thanks to llham, Grounded Pegasus,Colgate, Sarah and the swarm of others that sent both of these in!
Just in case you were wondering what exactly you were pre-ordering over on Amazon, G.M. Berrow has dropped her final reveal on everything. All togeather, we get the treasure chest box, the three hard cover books, a Daring Do golden idol, and the book case in the middle. Not bad at all!
Expect it way out in October on the 7th!
Sometimes we get those incredibly smooth SFM animations, and this just happens to be one of them. Suddenly I want to go play TF2. Did we ever get a legit pony mod in that game that wasn't creepy looking anthro things?
Anyway, get some Meet the AppleJack below!
And one more cover and title revealed for the upcoming Daring Do series. Dr. Caballeron is making a return in this one. Poor guy doesn't stand a chance in a cloud city!
G.M. Berrow will be revealing the entire box set casing with 200 retweets of this one, along with the golden idol that is included with it. Go do that!
Woah.. I will very much be judging this book by it's cover. That actually has me really excited to read it. G.M. Berrow is revealing the covers of the three-part series over on her Twitter page at the moment. She needs retweets though! Once this hits 30, the next will appear. Can get go invade that already? I want moar.
Thanks to Jason for the heads up!

Fluttershy is the happiest pony. Look how happy she is. This pmv/animation hybrid thing makes me happy too. Go be happy over here!
(Did anyone else watch this the first time and expect something bad to happen?)
Sorry about the delay on these. It actually takes a pretty good chunk of time to research and dig up the huge amount of stuff that has gone on in the past. A lot of pony actually happens behind the scenes, and it isn't always pretty. Because of the sometimes year-long time frames some of this stuff took up in 2012 (Hiatus) - 2013 (Season), this post will be split into sections as opposed to chronologically.
Season 2 was officially over, and the finale spawned an endless supply of fan content. This Day Aria was probably one of the most remixed songs ever, and we already covered how incredibly popular Queen Chrysalis was in the last post. Hasbro had fully noticed us at this point, and the next year was going to be absolutely insane because of it.
Unfortunately, we had a huge wait ahead of us. No one expected it to be as long as it ended up being, and by the end of it, we were all absolutely starved for new episodes. Season 2's Discord release in September spoiled us more than anything, and it would be long past that point this time around until we actually saw the light at the end of the tunnel.
Even with the mysteriously absent 3rd season release date, we thrived more than ever. Expect that, the merch, the conventions, as well as the behind the scenes story of Las Pegasus Unicon down below! It's a long one, so make some time.
And if you are new to these, get part one here and part two here!

Woah, it has been how long since the last one of these released as a full episode? Mentally Advanced is apparently back. Glad I stayed subbed through that swarm of Fallout 3 lets plays and other stuff! Head on down below the break to check out episode 13!
