We're going to Europe this summer and it's nice to see people getting excited about our visit! We hope we can be good guests to you folks across the pond.
News time my friends! Get it all after the break.
Everyone's favorite serpent is heading to Seattle as EFNW happily announces the attendance of Lee Tockar! I haven't seen him too much lately in the convention scene so let's give him a great welcome.
Check on after the break for info on Lee as well as more info on EFNW.
An interesting, albeit potentially dangerous question to ask! Yay danger. How does MLP compare it's season one and two roots? Has it gotten better over the years, or did you prefer it back when Lauren Faust was still involved?
Join a bunch of analysis people as they delve into the wonderful world of speculating on things that probably don't really need speculation but are fun anyway!

Discussion: Which Writers are You Most Excited to See in Season 5? Who Would You Like to See Collab On One?by Sethisto
We have a requested discussion post today (feel free to submit those). We have a full list of writers that worked on season five over here (Note: S5 spoilers). Some are new, others are returning, and all of them have their own unique styles that we sometimes see themed in the actual episodes. If you follow the writing staff at all, I'm sure you people have your favorites.
So, question one: Who is your favorite writer that you are most looking forward to seeing in season 5?
Now for part two!
While these guys do seem to trade ideas pretty often if their panel Q&A's are any indication, there are quite a few episodes specifically listed as being co-written, usually with Meghan thanks to that whole head writer thing. Power Ponies brought in both Charlotte Fullerton and Betsy McGowen though.
Who do you want to see collab it up for the 5th season? Maybe a Pinkie Pie episode with M.A. Larson and Amy Keating Rogers? Or perhaps some Meghan teaming up with Josh Haber on a Luna losing her mind in a creepy castle episode?
Again, you can get the writer list over here. CTRL+F "writing staff" if you want to skip over the spoilery bits.
This is why I love comic conventions. You never know who is going to pop up!
And for those of you who are lucky enough to live in Dallas, (Texas), you have the oppotunity to meet Tara Strong in your own city!
That's right folks! Tara "Twilight Sparkle" Strong will be attending Fan Expo Dallas on the weekend of May 29th–31st! So if you happen to be a Brony who lives in the city, a fan of Tara from any of the thousands of other programs she's been on, or are going to be visiting Dallas that weekend, please strongly consider stopping by to see her!
Be sure to check out the MLP Show Cast Convention Circuit Mega Post, to find more appearance by your MLP Voice Actors. You might just find an appearance that will surprise you.
Special thanks to the guys who develop the Pony Cons app for the heads up!
Twitter: The Illustrious Q
For whatever reason, I really like seeing the princesses not be regal. Lazy Celestia sneaking a nap mid meeting makes her character much more interesting.
Get some art below as always!
Have we had a Cadance at the top of one of these yet? Might as well do that!
And below the break, we celebrate the COSPLAY! Go check them all out!
Thanks to Emmett for sending a ton of these!
Princess Cadance- First look
Since we are getting flooded with this again, lets go ahead and drop that IMDB clarification up. Is the April 4th release date that has been up for months and new three episodes on top of the two revealed yesterday legit? Probably not. In fact, that thing gets new episodes added and deleted pretty much daily.
Considering we have teases going out on Twitter though, there is always that slight chance. I guess only time will tell! Maybe if we speculate enough Hasbro will drop us a date just to shut us up?
After a long hiatus, the team over at Silly Mare Games has resumed development on their platforming tower defense pile of madness known as Nightfall. Beta Build #6 fixes and adds a boatload of things. Get the full patch notes below the break, or check it out over here!
How would Derpy handle the Elder Scrolls? What reaction would a perfectly normal mail mare have to them?
Comic time! Click stuff yay.
Moonbutt apparently has a war going on in her mane, and Ivy League University Princeton wants a piece of it. A class going by the name of "Fanfiction: Transformative Works from Shakespeare to Sherlock" will be reading this moonbutt fic, followed by exploring the wonders of Friendship is Witchcraft.
Who would have thought four years ago that a major university would be digging into cartoon horse fanworks?
Update: Princeton also has a Trixie fic.
You can find the full listing of items to study over here on their class page.
