      This morning? You're a little late to the party! But, we warmly welcome all bronies, no matter when they became a fan of this show.

      Welcome to the club. New episode tomorrow!

      Welcome, new members! :3

      Anyways, a popular artist I'm acquainted with got into an incident over Tumblr recently where one of her fans said via the site that they were disappointed with her falling into the pony fandom and drawing more ponies. I can somewhat understand where the person is coming from since it's reasonable to get tired of constantly seeing a specific fandom but an artist isn't here to please anyone - art's a form of expression and if the artist likes what they're drawing, they should be free to continue with it. If you dislike it, unwatch the user rather than making it public. That probably won't change anything tbh.

      A lot of people actually agreed with that user (last I checked there were about 1,050 notes on the Tumblr picture, though after looking through some, I'm willing to bet a good 30% of them were people reblogging from the artist's side). I didn't really like how the artist responded to that message though, it was a little harsh, especially when the person worded their message pretty nicely. Though I can see her frustration.

      ..it was slightly ironic though since the artist they're complaining about mostly draws Pokemon, which is quite a popular fandom itself xD;

        Oh my God, a Music Man parody and an episode where everyone revels in getting drunk all rolled into one.

        Woop, forgot to comment on Saturday's episode.

        It was hilarious... I'll never forget the song nor the moving up and down chanting, "cider, cider, cider"... just gold. But AJ's "lesson" made the whole episode if you ask me. :D

          Loved that song.

          AJ's lesson made it but even better when AJ said her friends was family.

          I believe that the cider is non-alcoholic, at least in the US version, it was probably different in the other areas of the world the episode aired.

            That's interesting. Wikipedia seems to confirm that for US-speaking parlance, cider simply means a non-alcoholic apple-juice variant and 'hard cider' (something I'd NEVER heard of) means the alcoholic variant. Although I still stand by my earlier statement that those ponies were essentially getting their fix of cider; it makes it so much more interesting to think of MLP characters as alcohol addicts (Rainbow Dash especially).

                    I didn't know cider was known as alchoholic outside the U.S. Since Equestria isn't in the U.S., I think they WERE looking to get their alchohol fix! XD

                            So, after finally seeing the new episode myself this morning before school, I'm expecting to see plenty of Daring Do fanfics in the future. Anypony else? (I have to admit, though, I really like her mane. *Sweetie Belle channeling not intended*)

                            I don't really read fanfiction, but I do agree. There probably will be some Daring Do fanfiction in the future.

                            I liked the episode. Mainly because they made Rainbow Dash getting into books in the most believable way possible: adventure. If it was any other type of book, I don't think it would have been pull out as neatly.

                            Also: Indiana Jones reference through this whole episode Ya gotta love it! I wish I could have seen the episode in HD, but with Hasbro cracking down on MLP, I had to resort to any video I could find. Thus, I watched MLP in much lower quality than I'm used to.

                              I usually watch it on TV (except when I first got into it, of course, where I watched most of the first season on YouTube). If I miss it on Saturday, I'm almost always guaranteed I can watch the newest episode on Monday before I leave for school.

                              Welcome to the club, you'll be added to the member list.

                              I hate that Hasbro is cracking down on YouTube videos about the episodes. It's the one of the only ways some people can watch the episodes if they don't get the Hub (the other way would be a livestream.)

                                Thing is, then Hasbro doesn't make a lot of the money that they would normally make off the show. Because the ads that are shown along with the show when it airs on TV are taken out for Youtube videos, Hasbro isn't making a lot off of that, and I can imagine the ad companies won't be too happy. I guess a solution could be, like, keeping the ads in the Youtube videos. That way Hasbro and the ad companies would be happy, and bronies could just skip over the ads :3 I don't know. I'm not very experienced in this sort of marketing stuff ; It seems like a good solution to me.
