The fandom HATH SPOKEN. Or at least the loud part of the fandom. What did everyone think of Bloom and Gloom? Do they join me on my "best Apple Family episode ever!" ride? I hear it's a pretty exclusive club here in Bloomland.
For everyone following the Drawponies story, we now have a response from the man himself. In his newly published journal entry, he goes into detail on the act of tracing things, and in some cases listing these long side his original art at conventions for sale. He also talks about his moderation team for those worrying about the comment deletions.
For the future, he plans on no longer tracing anything, and simply relying on his personal skills. Anything at all that was traced will no longer be used. The tracing was simply a way to make things go faster apparently, which is probably why we don't see a whole lot of 1-1 comparisons.
For the full apology, head on over to his page here.
It turns out, a lot of you really want to see these two speak this season. Only Derpy and Lyra competed with them.
We actually had around 3% hit "other" this time, so feel free to drop your "other" in the comments! There are hundreds of Background ponies, so I couldn't get them all.
Which Cutie Mark From the Last Episode Do You Want Apple Bloom to Adopt?
I'm leaning toward alchemist myself. That actually sounded pretty badass. Based on all her run ins with Zecora and Twilight, it wouldn't be surprising to see her end up going that route. It would be way more interesting than an apple at least. Please not an apple. Anything but that.
We've got a new pony convention on the horizon everyone! With EQLA in, well, LA, BABSCon in San Fran and now Pacific PonyCon in San Diego we now have the whole State of California covered. Not only that, they are happy to announce the attendance of Andrea Libman as their first guest!
Check on after the break on the convention's location, pricing and more!
Hasbro has released their quarterly report for the first part of 2015, and things are looking good on the pony side. While you can dig into all sorts of specific numbers over here, we are going to focus on the pony!
Combined with Transformers, Hasbro saw a massive 74% increase in the Entertainment and Licensing segment, going from 34.9 million in 2014, to 60.6 million compared to Quarter one of last year. A good amount of this is due to streaming deals for the shows. As we move more and more toward the cloud based technological future, I wouldn't be surprised if this kept on expanding.
Thanks to Twilight Sparkle, Toxic Mario, and everyone else for sending it!

Today we celebrate the deadly wars of old for the peaceful nation of Equestria today! Glorious be the ponies of the dark ages. Without their sacrifice, Twilight Sparkle might be learning the values of disintegration magic instead of friendship!
This issue has really blown up over the past 24 hours or so! For those of you just hearing about this, Drawponies' fans recently began supplying evidence that at least some of his pieces are created using traced assets from the show.
Since the initial few images appeared, loads of evidence has been arriving in the submit box and around the internet showing his art matching up perfectly with show assets. To go along with this, screencaps of his live streams reveal him physically tracing things that are later sold.
More on that and our stance on the situation below the break!
With the con only a few months away, the Equestria Daily team is doing a lot of scheduling to get eight people on the team over to Germany this summer. Over in Germany the GalaCon team is also hard at work to prepare for the event. Currently GalaCon is looking for contributors to the con's art gallery.
[Romance][Tragedy] Author: The 24th Pegasus Description: I'm lost, but I don't know where I'm from. I miss them, but I don't know who they are. My name is Rainbow Dash, but I don't know who I am, or what happened to me. And I don't know if I'll ever be the same again.
So, that portal finally opened to Equestria, and you've stepped through to meet your new best pony buddy. Unfortunately, it looks like something went wrong, and you were sent to an Equestria run by earth style equines. Long faces, uncontrollable bowel movements, and general stupidity follow.
That Vinyl Scratch with a dog is back with another piano transcription, this time for Make This Castle a Home. An impressive amount of notes in this set, though I bet some of you could pull off playing it.
