Uh oh, looks like you guys caught her dorking it up. Just look how cute and embarrassed she is.
Heya gang, time to chat! Get to it!
Also a little favor I'd like to ask of you guys! JJ and I have been working on a fantasy comic for a few months now and we'd love you guys to visit and vote for us if you can. Thanks!
Continuing our electronic break for spotlight music posts, we have a new one from Carbon Maestro from his new Ascension EP continuing the tradition of epic orchestral, followed by a parody of The Smiths "How Soon is Now" with a pony story instead of the usual, post rock style. Get both below as always!
1.) Carbon Maestro - Ascension [Single] (Instrumental - Orchestral)
2.) Maressey - How Soon is Now? (Vocal - Post-Punk)
You don't need any more points Luna.
In true moonbutt fashion, Luna has taken over another poll. It was a close race up until the last few days with Lesson Zero leading for a good amount of time. I wonder how many of you even like canon Luna? The comic sold me on that one, but before that I always had a thing for the fan take on her.
Luna Eclipsed was something a lot of people were waiting for. We saw a glimpse of this incredibly appealing character in season one, and throughout the first pony hiatus, she was in more fanfiction than some of the mane cast. We had gamer Lunas, and lonely Lunas, and abacus Lunas, and even a few that came really close to what we would find in the actual episode. Needless to say, when someone from Topdraw leaked an image of her a few months before the episode aired, people were pining for some more. The new design was a huge surprise for a lot of people, and fanside we still run with both, converting little Luna to "Woona" in some circles.
Anyway, next battle! The second half of season two. You can get the results of the first below!
Another week means another Tumblr Spotlight gang! I think I've got an interesting mix for you all today. Some really unique tumblrs, an animated one, and a Doctor Who one for you Who fans. Get them all after the break.
Now that is some amazing customization! These five just look perfect together and ready to kick some butt!
You know what else kicks butt? The rest of our customs after the break.
There was a ton of pony/Adventure Time crossover stuff early on in the fandom. I wonder why it seems to have died out? We get one every once in a while at least.
Regardless, it's art time! Get it all below.
Adventure Time with FlutterCord and RainiGum
I admit that I am not much of a Frozen fan, especially after the internet went crazy over it, but I do recognize a good job when I see one and this little parody is one heck of an accomplishment! Clocking in at almost 4 minutes, check after the break for a ponified version of Let It Go!
Thanks to everyone for sending it in.
"Because this story placed 10th in the overall contest rankings, the depth and competence of the entries we received should be quite self-evident. Obselescence understands that timing is just as important as content when it comes to comedy, and Chrysalis' dysfunctional relationship with her well-meaning but less-capable minions demonstrates just that." -- CouchCrusader
[Comedy] -- 10th Place in the Equestria Daily Outside Insight Summer Fanfic Contest
Description: Chrysalis, queen of all the changeling hives and infinitely cunning architect of their plans to conquer Equestria, has a problem: She knows diddly-squat about ponies. But Chrysalis is cleverer than most—or all—changelings, and she's already devised a brilliant solution to this trifling issue: Make a movie about them.

Quite awhile ago we received disappointing news that EQLA was closing its doors and going into a hiatus that we all weren't sure they would ever come out of. Fortunately today we have our answer as the official EQLA Twitter account has declared that they are back in business and that fans can expect a convention date sometime in the near future!
We'll keep you all updated as new information comes in!
World of Warcraft hasn't done a whole lot with the pony over the years surprisingly. For a company that is usually overflowing with pop culture references, they aren't dropping a whole lot outside of Pink Peony the Sweet Treats vendor.
It looks like Warlords of Draenor plans to change that though, with the introduction of the Pneumatic Pony Cannon. They even dropped a description on it of "Say hello to my lil' pony!". Good on you Blizzard!
Here's to hoping we have a bunch more to post once the expansion arrives in November!
Thanks to Josh for sending it!
I bet quite a few of you picked up that Twilight Sparkle nightlight from a while back. It looks like she is about to be 1-upped though by Rainbow Dash. This one has popped up as part of the Rainbow Power Set at Tech 4 Kids. From the looks of the image, it's pretty huge. Chances are we can expect it in their next swarm of light up toys, similar to what came out this last year.
We also have mini dress figures following the Fash'ems line, only Twilight and Rainbow Dash have popped up for those so far though. Does it mean we will see Dashy as an alicorn princess in the future? Is this a sign of things to come?! (it's totally not).
Most of their stuff can be found over at the pony section! More images and even a few demo videos below!
Thanks to Micheal for sending them.
UNLEASH THE PETS. The main series comics are taking a bit of a pony break and focusing on the pets of Ponyville in this one. What shenanigans will they get into? How will they communicate? The mysteries can all be found below!
And go discuss it, ye slackers.
