The internet has been struck with another tragedy, but one man intends to help. Lilly Garcia was a 4-year-old girl who died on Tuesday in a road rage shooting in New Mexico. Trey Ganem, an artist in the Albuquerque area decided to create and donate a casket that he made towards the Garcia family. Lilly was a big fan of My Little Pony, which shows with Rainbow Dash emblazoned upon the top with other ponies on the inside.
Trey says that he wants the Garcia family to remember the good times that they had with her, and he hopes that the coffin will help. Our hearts go out to the entire Garcia family. I'm sure Lilly will be flying with Rainbow Dash up above. All of us as a fandom thank Trey for his donation. You can see the link to the video after the break.
Thanks to Jonathan, Jacob, and everyone else for sending it in.
Update Note: I want to make it very clear that Trey Ganem is not a part of the fandom. He is a freelance artist who fashioned the coffin due to Lilly's favorite show.

We waited an awful long time for the rest of the Pie Family to be given canon personalities. I think I like Limestone the best. Which one is your favorite?
Training Grounds stuff after the break.
SITH LUNA came flying into the EQD official headquarters earlier, lightsabered everything, then flew out laughing maniacally. Unfortunately Drawfriend wasn't in our secret backup cloud zeppelin, so it had to be remade.
Luckily we do that for you.
Go get your late Drawfriend Post below.

I've been driving back and forth between here and northern Arizona a bunch, and I have to admit, I've listened to many a pony audio book while doing that. These things really are amazing for passing the time.
It's listening time! If you want to submit your own, hit this post up. Now get some audio books:
1.) Past Sins [Normal]
2.) National Geographic Presents: Big Princess Week [Comedy]
3.) Accolade [Comedy][Shipping]

We've seen a lot of pillow based pony stuff lately, and a company called Canal Toys has another one for you. Apparently Twilight sparkle, Pinkie, and Rainbow Dash are all customizable pillow sets if the description is any indication:
- No sewing! It is fun and easy to decorate this soft pony pillow
- Simply apply stick-on felt pieces and gems; Then stuff & fluff
- The back side of pillow has zipper opening to easily stuff and close
- A perfect decorative pillow for any pony fan's room!
Make your own "Rainbow Dash" pony pillow! No sewing! It is fun and easy to decorate this soft pony pillow. Simply apply stick-on felt pieces and gems. Then stuff & fluff! The back side of pillow has zipper opening to easily stuff and close. A perfect decorative pillow for any pony fan's room.
Unfortunately, they aren't available at the moment. You can keep an eye on the Amazon page over here though.Thanks to Mike for sending them!
You guys feeling the holiday spirit? While Christmas might be a ways away yet, it's never a bad time to get into the holiday mood!
Check on after the break for the full playlist of 'Hearthbreakers' BGM!
For years now, we have seen an endless swarm of people from the media ask this very question, and I'm probably not the only one that isn't always satisfied with the answer they eventually land on. The reasons we all watch this show are vast. Some think its the best written thing on the planet, some like the setting, and others just straight up fall in love with the characters. It's a mixed bag.
So, fandom of people sticking around for ponies five years after it's arrival, what keeps you here? What makes you watch this show every Saturday?
Hit the comments up!
The UK apparently got a longer version of that Nightmare Moon comic we posted the other day. Much longer in this case, by 5 extra pages.
Head on down below the break to check it out! Expect the usual derpyness, though a much more impressive repertoire of vectors than usual.
The Nightly Roundup has been pretty lacking in cake lately. I blame the decline in pony birthday parties. What gives guys? Why no pony celebration anymore?!
Luckily, we have this new cake for the best holiday. Vampires, Mummies, Skeletons, and Zombie Ponies included. I for one welcome more Flutterbats myself.
Thanks to Lapinity for it!
For all of you SFM and Gmod fanatics out there, another new playground has appeared over on Steam Workshop. Castle of the Everfree is downloadable for use in SFM or Gmod, though I'm sure you all will find even more things to do with it.
Head on over to it's workshop page for all the images and to grab it!
Remember that Rise of the Clockwork Stallions side scrolling shooter game from way back in 2012? The one we have posted random updates on throughout the last few years? It finally released. A whopping 70 stages, boss fights, 50 playable characters, and more are apparently promised.
Head on down below the break for the trailer!
That is one of the coolest cover images for a song I've seen in forever. I think it was General Mumble way back in the day who used to impress me most with those. That needs to be a thing again.
Anyway, Russia gives us a remix with a cool image, plus some Nightmare Night from 174UDSI, and a re-link of that Freewave Rarity track from the other day because I totally forgot to include it. Get all three below!
1.) My Little Pony - We'll Make Our Mark (MiatriSs Remix)
2.) 174UDSI - The Night for Chaos
3.) Freewave - Rarity on the Case
