Can you imagine going from a badass city like Cloudsdale, to a dump like Griffonstone? Gilda tasted the good life! Maybe Griffonstone was better before the idol was stolen though? It still looked pretty dirty-bird-nesty.

Fanfic time! A new episode means a new opportunity to exercise those creative muscles. This week's prompts and submission details are after the break.
And yes, I'm aware the results for "Make New Friends but Keep Discord" aren't posted yet. They'll be up tomorrow.
We are coming up on the big 100th episode of Friendship is Magic. It still amazes me that we have been here going on to five years now. Think about how long that is! Games, movies, and music we consider old were new back then!
Lets celebrate for the next few weeks while we wait for it's air date with a series of posts highlighting some of the best parts of the last 99 episodes. In 2,178 minutes of glorious pony, we have had too many amazing moments to list in just one post.
Altogether, we should hit 11 categories with 9 entries each. Feel free to recommend a category you'd like to see in the comments, as we haven't actually decided on all of them yet.
Today we celebrate characters, or more specifically, characters that aren't regularly seen. Antagonists, major side characters, and more. Head on down below the break for our list!
(I should probably note that these are in no specific order, removed the numbers!)
We haven't seen an actual pony song from PON3 in a while. The dude kinda exploded in the pony music scene a while back, and this song is rockin it for his three year anniversary. Star off with that!
Definitely check out the second slot though if you are in the mood for some smooth music. ALfuix brings in the Tree-Hugger vibes with some awesome chillstep.
Get both below!
1.) PON3 - Ponies [3 Years Anniversary Special] (Vocal - Dubstep)
2.) Vilnius (Instrumental - Chillstep)
I had to look up that monster's name from the last episode, but he was badass, and the art they used for him was even more badass.
It's art time! Get your usual flood down below.

Griffonstone starts us off in this one, followed by some behind the scenes at DHX, and an oldschool Luna joke. Click for full!
Ever wonder what it's like to be a Blogger on EqD? Look no further than the EqD clicker! Experience the sometimes tedium, sleeplessness and all the #horsefame that running a pony blog can guarantee you!
With monotonous tasks and a strange addicting feeling you can take a look at the world pony media!
In all seriousness folks it's a good piece of satire (or not if you feel that way) created by some of our biggest fans. Think you can marry Trixie before Seth? Get to clickin!

Well, it took 94 episodes, but here we are. I don't know how many of you expected to ever see Gilda again, but it happened, more than four whole seasons later.
I'm Pegasus Rescue Brigade, bringing you my first episode followup of the new season. This week, veteran writer Amy Keating Rogers brought us an episode featuring a whole lot of heart, one of the oldest minor characters in the entire series.
Let's talk about "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone" after the break.

Poor Fluttershy. Such internal monologues. I bet some of you can relate there.

A much darker look at Tanks for the Memories sees it from an angle of Rainbow Dash dealing with the stages of her pet dying, not hibernating. Whether this was intentional or not is sort of based around viewer discretion. Obviously actual death in pony is a tough one to cover due to it's original demographic.
Silver Quill decided to tackle that, with lots of other forms of media to help supplement. Head on down below to check it out!
If you are a fan of M.A. Larson's past pony episode writings, expect more of that for the potentially biggest episode of the season! Over on twitter, Amy Keating Rogers confirmed his work on the 100th.
Prepare for it! It's going to be an interesting time in a few weeks.
Thanks to Masem for sending it!
The analysis community has grown a staggering amount in the fandom's old age, but we haven't done a whole lot of analysing analysis. Truly unmarked territory. We need to do that.
