I wonder what sorts of songs the ponies would listen too? For some reason I can really see Fluttershy listening to Enya or maybe she will surprise us all and listen to heavy metal.
Evening guys! Ready to chat?
Recovering from drawfriend explosion with some Luna to start it off. I'm still getting everything cleaned up and separated, but for now, you can at least get some pony art while you wait! Expect source links soon.
Go get art below while you wait!

When I was watching this episode with friends we were joking about Daki pillows and how funny it would be if they were at the convention... and then it happened. Even after all these years the show can surprise you!
Comic time guys! Get them after the break.
(Click this image to help!)Update: Olivia's mother posted a recent summary of her progress in the comments.
For those of you who follow Tara Strong on Twitter (hint: she voices that purple princess on the right), you've probably seen #TeamOllieOxen pop up on her timeline. It's a given that someone with her following is going to get flooded with all kinds of GoFundMe campaigns and retweet requests, but after talking with her at BronyCon and SDCC, I learned this was something of a special case.
Olivia is a fourteen-year-old girl battling
metastasized lung cancerdiffuse large B cell lymphoma (Edit: thank you, Kristin!) and immune system complications. And it's more than just Tara knowing this young woman personally -- her two sons have been her friends since kindergarten.
As you'd hope to expect, Olivia's folks have thrown everything at pursuing the medically-indicated standard of care for her disease: chemotherapy regimens, broad-spectrum antibiotics, whatever it takes to keep her alive.
You can begin to imagine what the hospital bills are looking like. Thankfully, as of this posting, Olivia is still with us.
If you're willing and able to donate some funds to Olivia's care, you can find #TeamOllieOxen primarily on GoFundMe. Olivia's caretakers have also set up Facebook and Twitter accounts to follow for those so inclined.
Regardless of whether you choose to donate to or share the campaign with your more affluent friends and followers, I'm sure Tara would love nothing more than to hear about it. Shout her up on Twitter when you're done so she can call you "puddin'" and all the other names you never heard during your childhood.
As promised, we are now archiving up all of the best of the best pony content out there for easy browsing and to help new people find things to watch that they may have missed over the past half a decade.

Below, you will find some of the top animations the brony fandom has to offer, covering My Little Pony characters from both the online pony world, as well as the mane cast. There are five major categories to choose from:
- Drama and Emotion
- Action and Adventure
- Comedy and Slice of Life
- Dark and Creepy
Go get it all below!

September 1st UPDATE: 5 animations added
… I seriously think the show runners really took the title of this episode to heart. Seeing Sethisto and Trixie like this… dang I really was not expecting it.
I also wasn't expecting Seth to let me keep this episode followup after he saw this. Huh. Guess somethings really are stranger than fan fiction.
On an completely related note, Seth wants to read this particular fan fiction. For some reason I get the feeling the inbox is about to be flooded with Trixisto fan fics.
I hope everyone is ready. Season 6 returned yesterday, and today I—The Illustrious Q—bring back Equestria Daily's Episode Followups!
Be sure to grab a sandwich before you check it out after the break!
With the 130th episode airing, Twilight Sparkle is officially about to pass the threshold of being an alicorn for longer than she was a unicorn. Magical Mystery Cure was the halfway point between the start of MLP and now.
I have to admit, there are many times where I miss the old Twilight and her freshly social adorkable ways. We haven't had a cute Twilight episode like Look Before You Sleep in forever. But what has replaced her isn't really bad at all in my opinion. She's still an excellent character with lots of fun characterization.
What do you all think? Was she better as a unicorn? Or is she superior as an alicorn?
Thanks to Nutbar for the heads up.
Daring Do means jungle themes, though that wasn't the only thing we got int his one. The background music in this show just keeps on getting better.

The big brony event over in Milwaukee has added yet another special guest. Showrunner Big Jim Miller will be in attendance this year for their October 28th convention.
Go get the full press release below!
I'm not sure what spurred this one, but it's interesting. A stallion saves his favorite mare from an accident in their house, followed by some feels. Plus she's cute. Cute mares are great. I love that.
Head on down below for it!
Hasbro has hopped on Snapchat with a new filter titled simply "Friendship is Magic". Right now all it does is add the effect you see up above to whatever image you use. There wasn't any kind of official announcement for this, so I have no idea if more options will eventually be available. For now, I guess you just need to stick to Twilight and Pinkie!
Thanks to PrincessLuna101 and Perfectly Imperfect for the heads up.
The slightly bizarre Stellae Key series by OhPonyBoy has dropped it's third installment.I still have no idea what is going on, but it's visually and audibly a trip.
Head on down below for it!

When you get famous it's hard to avoid the tabloids. It's ok Twilight, just ignore them and keep doing your thing! (Comic up top might be risque due to the subject matter, so just some caution I guess?)
Get the rest after the break!
I have more images to add here, but for whatever reason Deviant Art is derpin the uploader so I need to do it manually. Expect more soon! I think there were 8 or so left.
Now go get art!

Part of their #frienditforward compaign that we covered a few days ago includes a charity sale on 100% Official Dungeons and Dragons pony crossover shirts. Each one clocks in at $25, but all proceeds will go directly to the Points of Light foundation.
Go get it over here!
I almost want to run an event for this madness. Fluttershy is looking ridiculously epic with those druid light wings.
Thanks to Jeremy, Jay, Jorlem, and everyone else with J names for the heads up!
Something interesting has been found in a random activity book found sitting on a shelf at a book store. A section covering the Cutie Map ended up revealing information on upcoming episodes, including a full on image of Los Pegasus.
Head on down below to check it out!
Afternoon everyone! Are you ready for another day of streams? Well, get them all after the break!
Note: We still are doing Livestream Sundays, we've just had very few to no entrants over the past couple weeks. If you want to participate please contact me!
Another Note: I will be traveling today so if you don't get included or your name is in here without sending in an email it's because I'm mostly using last Saturday's list. Apologies.
As always with this event, if you want to partake in the madness make sure to send an email to me at [email protected] with your name, the type of art you'll be doing, a gallery link (optional) a link to your livestream and a banner (also optional). Make sure that your stream follows our content guidelines as laid out under our submit tab and also make sure to that you can be ready to stream at our standard time of 4pm EST / 1pm PST on Saturday. Also, if you participated in this week's stream event please send me the art you made so I can include it in next week's Livestream Drawfriend.
We've seen a lot of incredible episodes over the years, and last time around I dove into what are essentially my top 10. What makes one worthy of the halls of pony importance though? How do you make the stars align and leave an impression in fandom that has become ever the more critical over the past few years?
Since this subject is so beyond opinion based just like the last one, I'm again going go to ahead and warn you that these are all primarily my thoughts. I promise I won't go too overboard on the Trixie, but do expect some somewhat weird expectations. I also want to point out that this is not a compilation of the best of the best episodes, but instead focus on appeal and memorability.
Anyway, dive on down below as I dig into what makes a excellent pony episode!
The CURSE OF THE EARLY EPISODE RELEASES continues even as we dive into the second installment of season 6. Stranger Than Fanfiction is already over on Netflix in 1080p quality. If you are subscribed to the service, you can find it as the most recently added episode under Friendship is Magic.
Here's to hoping we can have some episode stream parties regardless! Try to watch it the usual way on TV if you have it. Ratings for a season opener are good!
Thanks to Splice and Jonathan for the heads up.
After a short break the hiatus is finally over and pony is back once again! With all the previews we've been getting over the past couple weeks it seems like the second half is going to be an interesting ride!
Check out the previews for it over here and here if you want a tease on what to expect.
For a peek at what is to come, check out our SDCC coverage over here!
Anyhow, enough babbling from me. Let's get to the episode! You can find our usual streams and places to watch the episode after the break.
Good morning everyone! It's finally the day of a new episode after our short hiatus. Are you excited? Because I'm excited! I figured a Daring Do header would be most appropriate today.As a side note, please keep all random chatting not related to the new episode to this post and out of the Episode Discussion post. That's why it's here after-all. But you can discuss episode-related topics here as well if you'd like.Now, let's get to chatting!
Season 6 Part 2 Coundtown - Tomorrow IT BEGINS! What Character Do You Want to See Get the Most Air Time?by Sethisto
IT IS TIME. That was a surprisingly less awful hiatus than I originally expected. We have episodes starting tomorrow morning and I'M HYPE. We've had some awesome teasers appear for this one, covering a good amount of the upcoming storylines we can expect. It's going to be an interesting end of Summer and Fall!
This marks our final discussion of the countdown. A lot of characters have been introduced, and many are just as popular as the mane 6 at this point. Who do you want to see get the most spotlight this next 13 episodes?
I think our SDCC poll has been up a bit too long. We did get a bit of movie news here, so I guess you can all be appeased there?!
We need poll ideas. Give us some in the comments! Remember, a good poll is one with a few multiple choices. We can't poll something that would have a million choices.
Anyway, new poll:
What season 6 part 2 new things are you looking forward to most?
Get it on the side bar and get this one below!
What kind of music do you think Fluttershy listens to? I bet it's hardcore gangster rap. She looks like the type.
Get the arts below!

With so much power I bet Twilight could do something like this. You don't mess with a pony with as much talent as Book Horse!
Comic time guys! Get the rest after the break.
So much for that Amazon exclusive until September. Maybe it's primarily for the other figures in the lineup that aren't appearing anywhere yet? Nightmare Moon and Celestia have been spotted at Walmart. This marks the first major retailer outside of small nerd-culture sections at Barnes and Noble and Gamestop.
Amazon still seems to be the only place for the rest of the set outside of the three we are seeing everywhere. You can still get all the figures over here with a release of September.
Thanks to Xander for the image!
A new synopsis has popped up for the episode Buckall Season! Starring characters you probably wouldn't expect to be playing such a game it promises to be an interesting one I think!
Get the full synopsis after the break and thanks to Joshua for sending it in.
If you are buried deep into the brony fandom like a good amount of us here on EQD are, you have probably run into a boatload of drama broiling about content creators taking advantage of their volunteers. I'm not going to name any names or point out any specific projects yet, as information is fluctuating and filled with misunderstandings and general rumor mongering, but I do think the subject overall needs to be addressed. And why not have fun with it while we do?
Since the dawn of the fandom way back in 2010, people have done their absolute best to make a name for themselves in pony. Whether they draw horses, run radios, write fanfics, or organize mini communities, it's only natural for someone to want to be acknowledged for what they accomplish. This has lead to the wonderful joke that is "Horse Fame", the ultimate goal for everyone in pony!
...Or is it? What can "Horse Fame" bring? Are there negatives? Time to EDITORIALIZE.

With SDCC long gone, and the figures not releasing during the event like they usually do, a lot of people were wondering if they would still be able to get their hands on the convention exclusive Guardians of Harmony Discord and Fluttershy figure. It turns out they actually have a set release date on the duo - August 9th.
They will be first come, first serve with 0 pre-orders available. Be sure to set an alarm for the morning of, as they will most likely go pretty fast if the GoH Lineup so far is any indication.
You can check out our review on them over here if you are curious!
Thanks to Bradley for the heads up.
Here's something completely different coming out of the pony music world. I don't think we have ever had a choir style before. With a bit of tightening up on the vocals, I can see a lot of pony songs rockin this style of remix for something unique.
Anyway, go check out something different below!
The heavy promotion of Stranger Than Fanfiction continues as another preview for the episode appears, this time on the MLP Facebook page!
Check on after the break for the clip and thanks to Acesential for sending it in!
Star Wars? Check.
Fallout? You bet.
Elementary school game from 1993 used to teach kids about homonyms? Why not.
Head on down below the break for ponified Kid Phonics 2!
I saw this in my Deviant Art list today and had to wonder why I hadn't seen something like this before with Crackle! I can only hope that Crackle's chain makes a nice country fried steak.
Morning guys! Sleep well?
We have a title for the finale, but I'll avoid including that for the sake of spoilers. This season seems to have a very loose arc involving Starlight Glimmer, but nothing as heavily set as the Tree of Harmony and of season 4. We still have some hints littered throughout the season that something is going on though, and with the map re-opening, anything is possible.
So fandom, while we wait for the next 13 episodes, what do you think this season will end on? Will all the ponies become alicorns? Will Chrysalis return in a hippie costume and spread peace and love throughout Equestria?
Poor Shining, maybe he should catch a quick nap before doing anything as head of state while Cadance is away?

AJ is actually our maintenance mare! We call her up if we ever have any problems with things. Here's a picture taken outside my place of her fixing a water pipe. Thanks AJ!
Evening guys! I'm out traveling today, what have you guys been up to?
I'm not going to lie. I kinda fell out of Flutterbat land for a while there with all these other incredible bat ponies taking up my time. This though... This has resold the GREATEST OF BATS.

WeAreBorg back again with more plastic molded into pleasant pony shapes. Before I release my review of the Guardians of Harmony Nightmare Moon, I'd like to take a moment to check out the MyMoji My Little Pony figures by Funko that were sent to me by Entertainment Earth. The MyMoji toy lines recreates our favorite characters as 3D emojis for RL.
Join me after the break, for a look into a box with more personality disorders than Discord.
It's incredible how far these have come. They are pretty much fully animated now minus the mouths not speaking the words and a few other shortcuts.
Mentally advanced -19 is available! Go get it.
Pony hugs are the best hugs. This video proves that. How could you crave anything else? I bet we'd need to open addiction centers if this was a thing.
Go get pony hugs below. So many pony hugs.
