Some of the greatest terrors come when someone you know and care about are in trouble or in an accident of some kind. Your stomach drops, your brain freezes, and time slows to crawl as everything sinks in. It's one of the toughest feelings to get through, but there is no greater relief when you find out they will recover or that they will be ok and that life can continue as normal at least a little while longer.
Evening everyone! Ready for the weekend? By the time you read this I'll be in Florida so I might not be around as much for about a week. If that is the case I hope you all have a good week ahead and I'll see you shortly!
Get your music below!
We've reported here and there on the MLP Fair before on EqD, but before this year it has mainly been a convention for older fans of the series. This year things are going to be a little different as the only Hasbro endorsed convention opens up a bit to recognize the Brony following the franchise has garnered.
For the first time they have invited MLP:FiM voice actress Andrea Libman to the event so if you're looking to see Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy (for the first time or again to say hello) now's a good chance to get in on the fun and mingle with past fans!
With the likes of Bonnie Zacherle and several artists involved with the actual toyline there is plenty to do and see at this year's event! So check on after the break for a small breakdown of what to expect and where to attend.
The Smooze gets his groove on from Mush in the first slot, followed by a the usual epic orchestral from Carbon Maestro. Head on down below for both!
1.) Mush - The Smooze Groove (Instrumental - Funky Electronic and Vocal Clips)
2.) Carbon Maestro - Equiterian Empire (Celestial Divide OST) (Instrumental - Orchestral)
I'm glad you all loved Tree Hug... WHAT? She lost?! Fandom I am disappointed. This is just Discord's trickery isn't it? You all meant to click Tree Hugger but accidentally ended up selecting Discord, Celestia and Maud instead. He influenced you... somehow.
You have thrown my chakras completely out of balance. I can't even think of a super engaging poll. So go have this one from Flash Bolt on Twitter:
Spike is now a pony! What race is he?
Go do that on the side bar, and get these completely ridiculous results below the break!

As many of you have probably figured out by now considering how many times we have mentioned it, a few weeks ago someone on 4chan listed a bunch of episodes claiming to be legit. We were skeptical at first until the Smooze episode was revealed with a matching title, and from then on each episode has been real.
Of course, titles don't give us a while lot of actual information, so it's time to play some theory crafting!
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to pick an episode from this list and write a synopsis. It can be as crazy and creative as you wish, as long as it uses the title of your chosen episode in some way.
As a refresher, the full list can be found below the break. Now go! Synopsize one of these episodes in the comments!
(I expect TRIXIE.)
Discord and Fluttershy VA's teaming up for a song? Flutters is a bit quiet, but it's a fun little tune anyway. Get that in the first slot!
And if some more traditional music is your thing, or at least traditional for the last two years, we also have some melodic dubstep to follow up on it. Get both below!
1.) The Discordians - The Shake Ups In Ponyville (Vocal - Discord and Fluttershy Sing)
2.) Vinyl.rawr & PegasYs - Miracle (Vocal - Melodic Dubstep)
It's not often a show staffer hops in with the brony fandom for some fan music! Anneli Heed has teamed up with the team at Wasteland Wailers to do a song.It's Spitfire time. Head on down below to check it out!
Tons of Brushables Appearing on Ebay and Taobao from Toy Fair - Coco Pommel, Starlight Glimmer, and More!by Sethisto
I miss Starlight Glimmer. Her firework sure did die off quickly. We got flooded with her wielding her staff thingy for a week... then silence! What gives fandom? Trixie still gets fan art! I wonder why?
ANYWAY, we have a bunch of new brushables appearing on various spots where pirate merchandise tends to go. Chinese sellers from Ebay and Taobao sellers from Taiwan both have new toys that will be releasing in the near future listed in their shops. Head on down below the break to check it all out!
There isn't a food on earth I like more than pizza. Everything about pizza is the greatest thing ever. The oozy cheese, the spicy pepperonis, the sweet marinara sauce... who could hate it? No one that's who!
So get some pizza pony, and get the usual art pile below the break.
Soda and Pizza Pones

Heya everyone! Calpain here! Not sure why this idea didn't strike me sooner, but now that the new season is in full swing I thought it would be a great idea to remind people of our Tutorials and Meetup Map pages! If you're looking to do some pony art this season or catch the episodes with friends these resources should help you out.
Not only that, but emails for these sections has slowed a bit so I wanted to give new folks to either EqD, the fandom, or just those who didn't know these sections exsisted a chance to send in new groups they might know of or tutorials that have been helpful to them!
For instructions on how to send in your tutorial or meetup group, check the links below.
Thanks for listening to a science pony ramble gang!

Discord Week has been zipping along over on the My Little Pony CCG Twitter, with a new Utter Chaos rule card getting posted twice a day. These are fun little optional rules you can use in casual games to change things up, either deciding one per game or randomizing and having new ones come up throughout.
Discord Day is tomorrow, ending with a day packed full of hourly Utter Chaos rule card posting, and the dev team is looking for input from players! If you have any suggestions for Utter Chaos rules, no matter how insane or completely infeasible*, leave them in the comments below or reply to this post on Facebook.
* One of the upcoming rules is basically "change places with your opponent, including their deck and hand of cards." No idea is too weird to share!
While the teaser they posted is the same one we tossed up earlier, the blurb they used was completely different. We may be seeing the return of someone. Head on down below the break to check it out to avoid them spoilers!

I can see how this would have made the Gala more fun without all the havoc and chaos. Just make sure the buffet table is fully stocked.
Comic time guys! Click for full!
UNLEASH THE HOUNDS. Or the spoilers. It's Friday, which means we are going to be flooded with news about tomorrow's episode. Toonzone has a new video up for it! Head on down below the break for the infos and link!
Because the analysis community loves to analyze eachother! we have a new, animatic style delve into KP's mind, from the one and only Dr. Wolf. Head on down below the break to check it out if you follow these guys.
Another week, another bat pony, another community run set of marathons, and the usual madness! We have an episode tomorrow, and you all need to go celebrate that today.
But check out that bat first. Such a nice bat. Bats are the best stream ponies. I have no idea what the correlation is but they are.
Head on down below the break for today's events!
Poor Tree Hugger. Completely clobbered in the poll. I still love her though. Who could hate that face? She looks so happy. Or stoned. One of the two. Or both at once. Technically they tend to go together.
Go discuss things below, along with Tree Hugger.
