When I saw this Invader Zim based picture I had to use it for header. GIR has to be one of my favorite characters from series I watch in high school.
Anyhow, lots of news tonight since we missed yesterday's Roundup. Get it all after the break!
Even more Final Fantasy crossover art! I absolutely love it! What sort of RPGs do you guys play? I grew up with the likes of FF, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, and Soulblazer.
Anyhow, time to chat! Hope you all had a great Saturday.
Spotlight Music: Equestrian Breakdown / A Summer's Day / A Glitch Hop Song Loosely Relating To Applejackby Sethisto
Questionably pony? Just assume there are hooves. That's how I read humanized fanfiction.
We have three instrumental tracks today, all running a more electronic style. Sorry orchestral fans. Get them below, with genres next door.
1.) FlightRush - Equestrian Breakdown (Instrumental/Vocal Splicing - Breakbeat)
2.) Jastrian - A Summer's Day (Instrumental - Ambient)
3.) Viricide Filly - A Glitch Hop Song Loosely Relating To Applejack (Instrumental - Glitch Hop)
Description: In the far reaches of Canterlot Castle, high above in the towers lives the archmage. Everypony knows her, yet few have met her.
Twilight Sparkle sighs, having teleported away another noble seeking favors before reaching the top of the stairs. That was the second time today; they never learned.
As the archmage, Twilight already deals with political squabbles far too often without inviting them into her home. Aside from personal favors for her only friend, Princess Celestia, she does what is required of her position and then returns to seclusion and research.
The nobles grumble that no archmage should be a commoner, and Twilight’s disrespect towards them proves it. Each and every time they are forced to bow to her, they hate what they see: the position, the status, the deference.
Is she not powerful? Is she not great?
Twilight, now reading through dusty scrolls and long forgotten tales, writes in her notes. Notes gathering dust of their own. A brief thought flashes through her mind as she fervidly writes.
Am I not powerful? Am I not great?
Seeking Power (New Part 10!)

While the pages of Jetpack's new BronyCon exclsive comic were posted in full art form by Tony Fleecs, the one above wasn't revealed with it. Friends Forever #7 will have this one available for all the attendees there, with Luna and Pinkie rockin the convention getup of badges and cameras.
They also have the other ones up in page form. Get them over here!
Thanks to The Illustrious Q for the heads up!
The maker of the amazing Dash Academy series has started a new series: Red Sorena! A more action packed, dark comic that takes place in Equestria's sordid past I see great potential in this new series.

We may be in haitus mode, but that doesn't mean we aren't getting a boatload of pony soon. For those that haven't been following the recent news, August 4th at 9:00 AM will begin a massive 4 season long marathon with every single episode back to back. According to the spot, they also have mane 6 Q&A peppered throughout.
Check it out down below!
Thanks to Andrew for sending it.
Humanized header?! What is EQD coming to? Were we bought out? Was there an apocalypse? Is this the aftermath?
What if we turned into humanized daily? What would you all do?
Regardless, get an awesome header with Apple Bloom and Big Mac, and boatloads of ponies below to make up for it.
At Eternity's End
Story updates! Look at Cadance up there. Are you going to deny reading her fic? I think not. Shes so sad that you even considered ignoring her. Shiny dumped her and left her with an entire empire to run alone. What a douchebag.
WatchMojo is at it again as pony makes it into another of their top 10 lists! This time our lovable mail mare Derpy gets a little bit of a spotlight in a not so flattering video as WatchMojo goes through what it thinks are the Dumbest Animated TV Characters. At least Derpy was just an honorable mention and didn't technically make the top 10!
Find the video after the break. The part with Derpy is near the end just before number 1. Also, thank you all for sending it in!
For those of you that weren't able to attend ENFW this year, Stable-Tec Studios has tossed the animatic from their upcoming Fallout Equestria inspired animation up for all of you to view. If you want it, head on down below the break for it!
Another weekend means another weekend of streaming! Things seem to be slowing down a bit at the moment, but considering how many artists are going to BronyCon it makes sense they're all a bit busy as of late. Anyhow, check on after the break for some streaming!
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
It's been more than two months since Twilight got herself that shiny new castle in Ponyville, and we find ourselves settled comfortably in the embrace of the intra-season hiatus. I'm comfortable, at least -- these pills are working wonders.
With summer upon us and the warm glow of our computer screens to keep us safe from the ravages of the day star, we have all the time we need to speculate on what's to come for the new Princess of Friendship and her friends (and Spike). Well, let's put some of that speculation to work, shall we? Let's do something fun for this next month, and let's do it for Equestria.
Let's have a contest.
We have pony neck pillows now, just in case your bed wasn't already covered in pony stuff. We really need to run another one of those collection events and see how crazy things have gotten over the years.
This one was found at a Toys R' Us in Singapore by @crocodee.
And head on down below the break for more random merch!
A bit of small news coming out of the socks loving team over at Legends of Equestria. For those looking forward to the game, expect a new mascot to join you in your quest to pony around Equestria. Ellowee is her name, and she proves that feather hats look good on ponies. Like just about everything else.
Get another image of her below the break, or check out their forum post.
Thanks to Artic Lancer for the heads up!
San Diego Comic Con is right around the corner, and on top of the usual pony panel that reveals all sorts of awesome information, we have the usual posters to collect. Seven booths around the floor will have posters for us to collect that are a part of the 40 poster collectable book that will also be on sale.
As with every year, im sure these things will disappear ridiculously fast. You guys better get me a Trixie if I'm not able to!
Get all the posters below, in super small size:
Thanks to Keegan for the heads up
What are you feeling right now?! If you are a black hole of nothingness, hopefully Season 5 will cure that! This was tweeted out earlier from Meghan McCarthy. What do you think Amy Keating Rogers is cooking up? Shes best known for her work with Pinkie Pie, and now with Twilight and Rainbow Dash banter. What could she do to top it?
Thanks to Artic LAncer and Christopher for the heads up!
(It feels so good to use the season 5 label)
