Next up on Pony History of the Day is the Rainbow Dash Presents, Mentally Advanced and DinkySharkFighter series by FiMFlamFilosophy! Years ago, when the fandom was still in the Golden Age of 2011, two abridged series made their debut on the pony scene: Friendship is Witchcraft (which we have spotlit already) and the Mentally Advanced Series. While several abridged series would soon follow, these two are arguably the most popular and remain so to this day.
While the Friendship is Witchcraft universe is mainly centered around the abridged series proper and the songs that were created for it, Mentally Advanced grew from its roots of retelling episodes in FiM to a number of spinoff series: Rainbow Dash Presents and the short lived DinkySharkFighter.
Even though Mentally Advanced and Rainbow Dash Presents have not yet ended, their history is as deep as the fandom itself and is a perfect example of the evolution of a long running series, much like how FiM itself has evolved over the years.
So come on a journey with me to the early days and check out the history of FiMFlamFilosophy and Petirep after the break!
Before we start though, I want to thank those of you who suggested this entry! Make sure to leave your suggestions in the comments.
OC really have come into their own since the start of the fandom. People used to be really wary of them but now it seems like everyone has an OC nowadays. It really does make the fandom more lively doesn't it?

Now that we have some fan art of the mascots to compile up, I figured it would be a good idea to have them on the side bar somewhere. Introducing the mascot section! New Spotlight Splash and Rocket Tier art will be added here as it comes in.

Howdy, folks! TheSlorg here, and it's time for another Pony Spotlight. This week's pony is bringing some class. It's Octavia Melody!
While the original idea was to spotlight a lesser-known pony this time, there is something about Octavia here that makes featuring her today make more sense.
So what is it that is so special about Octavia? Find out below the break!
I love this picture and I don't know why.And now we're into week two of National Pony Youtube Month! I've already got a few submissions from entrants and I thank you all for sending them to me!

But for this week, let's dive deep into 10 tips to get you into fanfiction readings with TheLostNarrator after the break!
It's looking like those figure erasers that released forever ago are getting a second wave, with the mane 6 joining sunset Shimmer and a pony named Apple Honey this time. We don't have any information on when they will actually hit stores, but consider yourself informed that they do, in fact, exist!
Thanks to Micheal for sending them.
I've been waiting for this episode for our Rewatch series! As a lot of you know, I'm the resident AJ fan here on Equestria Daily and will stick up for her no matter what. As such, I'm proud to present the first single character episode for FiM which just happens to star everyone's silly pony Applejack.
A good episode in its own right, 'Applebuck Season' gave rise to a meme or two that have stuck with the fandom to this day and served as a vehicle for AJ's character that has stuck with her ever since. If you need a dependable pony, you can count on Applejack!
Check on after the break for 10 interesting scenes from Applebuck Season and rewatch the episode.
Sorry for the later than usual rewatch! We got really occupied on Saturday and didn't have time. Look forward to the next rewatch on Saturday!
