Heya everyone! I am glad to be back after spending an amazing time at PonyCon. I met some really awesome people there including a cool young fan named Claire that made this little piece. It was her first pony convention and she was there with her family and just so happened to win a huge cutout of Rainbow Dash at the auction at the end of the convention.
Hope you had fun Claire, it was a pleasure meeting you at the convention!
Time for news my friends! Check it all out after the break.
It's been awhile since we've had one of these, eh gang? With me back from PonyCon it's time to start these back up again. Hope you all had a nice weekend and that the week ahead is treating you well.
Now get to chatting! I hear there was some interesting news from E3 today!
With EFNW less than a month away time is running short to get your ticket for the big event! Knowing this, the folks over at EFNW have opened up their sponsor tickets so if you want to go to the convention in style now is your time to do so.
Check after the break for all the info you need to get your ticket before they run out!
Description: [Alternate Universe - Rites of Ascension] Shining Armor and Princess Cadence's marriage has become legend. However, the two were not always a couple. Learn how the famous lovers first met and the stunning lengths that the Princess of Love herself had to go to in order to get her destined beau's attention after years spent drifting apart while Shining served in the military.
This story is written such that one does not need to have read Rites of Ascension beforehand to understand and enjoy it. However, one should know a few quick, easy things going in. First, Season Three and later do not exist in the Rites timeline, and second, Cadence is a winged unicorn rather than alicorn. Also, I'm aware the comics tackled this topic, but this is in my own AU, and I first wrote this more than a year ago. Consider this an alternate take on the idea. Other than that, you should be able to dive in with no problems.

A whopping 280 page compilation of the first 12 issues of the My Little Pony comic series is set for pre-order over on Amazon. For those that haven't jumped in already, or the cover collectors out there, expect to see it drop on the 28th of October. I'd suggest reading it before that though! Slackers.
Get it over here.
Thanks to Micheal, "Rainbow Dash" (you guys should totally use your own names! :P), and everyone that sent it in!
PRAISE THE MOON. Is what you would be saying if this new Dark Souls style game has a moon covenent.
Get your art below! It's another massive one clocking in at 62 images this time! Celebration!
It seems like just yesterday Twilight Sparkle earned the term "Adorkable" via the "Look Before You Sleep" episode. She was already cute and booknerdy before that one, but this was her crowning achievement as queen of the ridiculously cute dorky ponies.
It looks like after a poll event held by Collins, Adorkable has joined their official list of words with 30% of the vote. It now has it's own entry.
I'm not sure who exactly bombarded said poll, but good work to those that did!
Thanks to Rarick for the heads up.
Lots of comics and merch news today! We have another one from Botcon this time around. This is apparently the Toy Federation exclusive cover for the upcoming #30 Transformers comic. Get it at the Toyfusion booth on June 20-22 if you plan on attending.
Thanks to Thomas, Excel and everyone else for sending it!
You all seemed to like stockings Chrysalis so much, I wouldn't be surprised if she did pretty well! The Australian Toys R' Us has popped her up there, complete with the manufacturer description:
Be a part of the Ponymania with this electronic Queen Chrysalis pony pal! This royal pony wants to take over, and only the magic of friendship can stop her. She talks to you and her wings move and light up! Can you make her part of the friendship circle? You’ll have the best My Little Pony adventures with this regal electronic pony!
It's going to be interesting to see her lines. She isn't on the US website yet, but I'll let you all know when she is!
Thanks to Micheal for the tip!
Following that Ponymania punk-rocker style lineup, Toys R' Us in Australia has tossed up this Zecora Equestria Girls doll, complete with the mohawk and a whole bunch of piercings. The exact description on her:
This high-style Zecora doll has a fashion secret and you’re the only one she’ll tell – maybe! She’s got wild hair, a rockstar outfit and sassy boots for the best Equestria Girls look ever. She comes with a clip-in ponytail you can use to make her even fancier!
- High-fashion Equestria Girls doll looks like the Zecora character
- Doll has a sassy outfit and boots
- Includes clip-in ponytail
She currently clocks in at 30 bucks over there, and hasn't shown up on the US Site as of yet. It's interesting to see them branch out into this scene though!
Thanks to Micheal, Ossie, and Igladorf for sending it over!

Heya everyone! I'm back from the Big Apple and ready to once again post up all sorts of pony stuff. While I was away I got some thinking done, especially when watching some season 1 episodes on the big screen for the first time.
Back in the day we often discussed what would be the best episodes to introduce people to our little pony friends and show them that this show isn't just a girl's show, but a show for everyone of all ages. Now this was back shortly after season 1 so our choices were limited, but usually people seemed to agree with episodes like Dragonshy, Bridle Gossip, and Party of One as good introductory episodes. But now that we have four seasons of material to work with, what episodes would you guys use to introduce someone new to the series?
Leave your thoughts in the comments!
So, these things. These things are a lot of fun. The Not Doing Hurtful Things to Your Waifu trend continues to grow, adding a whole bunch of characters. If you liked the last one, have a bunch more compiled up! Get them down below.

Description: When Rainbow Dash receives a package from her grandfather, she discovers an artifact of immense power and potential. An artifact that holds dominion over the very destiny of each and every pony's threads of fate. In the wrong hooves, it could be dangerous, catastrophic even. Naturally, she abuses it.

It looks like Netflix has added season four to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic entry. Aside from a small derp in the title of Power Ponies (Super Ponies for Netflix), it seems like all of the episodes are available and intact.
Now go watch it and make it sit in the popular section for a month like last time!
Thanks to Yaaaaay for the heads up.
It seems like pegasus wings get more and more flexible each season. I wonder if we will ever see some of that earth pony magic used to it's fullest though? It has already been proven that they aren't the only ones that can grow crops. Do they just do it faster?
Anyway, get your roundup stuff below!
