Description: Life in Canterlot Castle is about more than just the Princesses. Many ponies spend their days working in the palace, toiling with their virtues unsung to keep life humming alone. Meet Spot Shine, Aegis, Raven, and more. Take a glimpse through their eyes, even as Princess Celestia finds herself a bit under the weather. Some knowledge must be earned, and sometimes the moment our eyes are fully opened is when we most wish to squeeze them shut.

EqD has been a bit on the slow side lately, but I believe I know the culprit: finals. With a fanbase that is mostly in college or some form of school you can expect things to slow down quite a bit when finals are knocking at your door.
Good luck to all our scholars out there! Twilight is rooting for you! In the meantime, why not a little break from the studying to get some chatting in?
Joining Cheese Sandwich from a few days ago, Maud Pie is now available for purchase on the Hot topic website if you are lazy like me and didn't feel like going to the mall for one. Currently she is 25% off, though I think that is just "25% off an imaginary normal price" and really she's just available.
Get her over here!
Thanks to Thesubarupony for the heads up.
Season 5 sure added a bunch of awesome new unicorns. I wonder how Equestria handles a race of ponies that can suddenly lose their minds and literally change time in response? I can't imagine it's easy dealing with citizens with those types of powers.
Art time! Get it all below.

Looks like the Gameloft MLP game has been on a roll with updates as of late! Apparently in a new update they have added a new dress up minigame that involves a host of new materials to collect and spend on fancy pony outfits.
They appear to have added a number of new pony icons, collections, and items as well!
I'm not an expert on how this all works as I haven't played the Gameloft MLP game in some years, but it looks pretty cool from the screenshots.
Check them all out after the break and thanks to SUP3R Toastr for sending them in.
Visiting a friend is a great idea, but when you have two copies running around it's probably a good idea to check first to see which one is around!
Comic time! Click for full!
Looks like we missed this one in early November which is a shame since it has some decent animation and lip syncing and looks super smooth at 60FPS. Guess you know a song is a classic in the pony fandom if it's still getting animations for it years later, eh?
Check out the video after the break!
Round one of our three round character battle has complete! I think a day and a half per poll is good enough to solidify those winners.
Starlight Glimmer, the Smooze, and Nightglider pulled off the victory here, with a surprising amount of people voting for Troubleshoes. I wasn't expecting that.
Next round is up! Get out and VOTE! As a reminder, the final round will be the top 9 characters from the 22 new major ones in the season.
And get the results of this one below.
Now that the guys behind Rainbow Dash Presents and Mentally Advanced have started animating their own shorts I bet we can expect more and more animations like this. And man, Mentally Advanced Twilight does not put up with anyone's *yay~*!
Get the full short after the break!
As we move into next great hiatus, you may find yourself desperate for more pony. Something like that could cause a sudden need to play super easy flash games and earn Friendship Points. Luckily Hasbro has you covered.
A new site has launched called My Little Pony Friendship Club. It has everything from downloadable wallpapers, videos, games, toa member section to unlock things.
If you are bored, go sign up here.

If you have been following the Drawfriend posts these last few days, you have probably run into a body pillow or two. The Paragon has been busting designs out left and right lately. Hasbro appears to be wanting in on it, with their own lineup of pony body pillows.
Right now, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight are available. While they aren't as... questionably artistic as the fandom interpretations, they are still pretty cute!
Thanks to Ryan for sending it.
Update: Maybe not so much body pillow as originally thought. Thanks to Hanover in the comments it turns out to be just a bed pillow. Still cute and pretty nice for $10!
When was the last time we had spinning 3D ponies on the front page? Someone going by the name of Chronotrickle over on Deviant Art has created 3D figures of Rainbow Dash decked out in her warrior gear. Everything from the signature flight helmet to that badass metal wing are included. Three poses are available in all:
Now we just need Funko to scoop em up for a future release!
Quite a few people are reporting receiving their We Love Fine chibi pony vinyls. Similiar to 4DE a last week, now that they are shipping, sales have once again opened up on these guys. Each one goes for 15 bucks over on their website.
At the moment, it looks like everyone except Applejack is available immediatly.
Thanks to Shaun for sending it!
