Zecora and Fluttershy really are our nature characters from the show. I think whenever an artist makes a forest scene you can bet that it's usually Zecora or Fluttershy that end up in the pics. Those two should really hang out together more often.
News time my friends! Get it all after the break.
The finale brought on a swarm of people for the end of the Writing Training Grounds. I guess having multiple worlds really helped get those creative juices flowing?
Thanks to everyone that submitted for it! I know the posts were a little random. If we do it again next season, we can work out the bugs.
Below the break, get 17 fanfics from practicing writers starring all things season finale!
Now that's a pretty nice teenage Spike design! The sleek and slim look really works for him at that age. What do you guys think?
Another weekend has come and gone my friends. At least Christmas is around the corner! Are you all excited?
Remember that one time when Rainbow Dash wanted to be festive for a Hearths Warming Eve party, without realizing that socks were in this year, and Rarity invited all the major fashion ponies who wouldn't leave her alone about how trendy and amazing she looked? Remember when she bucked Photo Finishes' 30,000 bit camera in frustration and ended up having to model for free to pay for it? Good times. It got even better when she ended up as a disgruntled superstar with millions in advertising deals for every major Equestrian brand out there, and a full 6 page dedication in Sporty Mare Illustrated. I hear Fluttershy still keeps that ridiculously well selling 2015 "Themes of Dashy~" calendar up to celebrate the occasion.
FLASH FIC TIME
Pick a pony image, any pony image. Grab a link, put it in your comment, and write a "Remember that one time when..." about it. It doesn't need to be Rainbow Dash. It doesn't need to be written well.
Aim for 100 words! (The text above is 123 if you need an example)
Now go! The comments are YOURS!
A Cutie Mark Crusaders book with a February 9th release date has popped up on Amazon. It's only 24 pages, and looks to be based on the actual episode. Get it over on Amazon if you want it.
Thanks to Purpurae for that one, and get more random pony merchandise below the break!
Alicorn Princess Party. All the alicorns have arrived. How do you react to this as the season 6 opener? Are you happy to see Sunset Shamwow return to glorious ponyland? Or do the wings make you dislike everything forever?
Get the art below!

While we've already seen Equestria Girls Mini appear at Smyths in the UK, their official release was somewhat of a mystery until now. According to The Examiner, January 1st marks the big day when these start flooding into stores.
We have some exact details too:
- Dolls will be 5" tall
- 25 characters will be available, including the mane 6
- Specific figures will retail for $7
I know a lot of you greatly prefer these designs over the usual dolls. I wonder how well they will do?
And in case you missed the news earlier in the week, these are actually marking the start of a mini series. Check out the reveal of that here.
Thanks to Pinka for sending it!
Good excuse to use one of the banners from yesterday again! Thanks so much AniRichie! She did an awesome job.
Anyhow, as I said yesterday, it was AniRichie's idea to expand the Livestream Saturday posts to Sunday and I've gotten a few positive nods from artists in the fandom. So what do you guys think, both artists and viewers alike? Sound like an idea you guys can get behind? Time is still yet to be determined since Followups are usually on Sundays.
Once I gather more data I'll see if I can make a decision by next weekend! Thanks for the input guys.

Description: Discord's last significant attempt at a relationship ended with him being petrified for 1000 years. He's understandably hesitant about trying again. Having an unknown source of love-magic start drawing every female in Equestria toward him is pretty much the *last* thing he wanted...

So now that season is over, what do you guys think of Tree Hugger? Some of you hated her and some of you liked her when the episode aired. Now that time has passed, what do you think?
Morning guys! Want to chat?
