Friendship is Witchcraft ep. 8

some might make false assumptions about what's going on if they haven't seen the episode where Princess Luna gives up her position as Princess of the Night to Twilight in exchange for lessons on social interaction and appeal

it looks like past episodes were removed from YouTube? so http://www.sherclop.com/

I think a frightened, panicked face would be better than the, um, "bedroom-eyes" she's displaying. In a lot of ways, I think it's more disturbing than some of the more blatant stuff I've run across.

Re: other forum discussions going on at this very moment, I bet Twilight's mom laid off the 'when are you giving us some grandfoals?' line now that she's a (presumably immortal) wing-a-ling princess.
Shining Armor, on the other hoof... let's just say there's an hilariously inappropriate comic I could draw for that if it didn't involve actually drawing a comic.

So... Las Pegasus Unicon, pretty much the biggest con this year with a ton of official MLP guests and a huge number of brony musicians and personalities, imploded in spectacular fashion.
The organizers had planned on and sold the convention as going to garner about 2,000 attendees, but it only got about 1,200 by Sunday. The con was not going to meet its monetary obligations.
To help make up for the pretty huge shortfall, autographs and special offers from the guests were put on a kind of fire sale and went about half-priced all Sunday. A last minute funding drive was set up by the brony media (EQD, Derpy Hooves, News, Celestia Radio, etc.) to help cover the costs for official guests which raised about $7.5K to be distributed by John de Lancie's agent to the agents and representatives of the other official guests.
Meanwhile the upper management of the con's organizers pretty much disappeared during the day, leaving the lower level staff and all the guests, media, etc. holding the bag. None of the money raised will be going to those guys, it's all for the guests. The money raised for charity at the con is also still going to the charities instead of being put into the pool. The con security staff was augmented by some volunteering from military bronies and others to make sure everybody got out safely while the media bronies tried to stage a graceful exit and raise the money for the guests.

So while the community reaction to this has been pretty damn amazing, the experience might still have repercussions for future conventions. Every effort is being made to keep the all-important show guests happy and compensated to try and minimize whatever negative impact the implosion could have on guest availability going forward. There was already an issue late in 2012 where Hasbro was clamping down on guest appearances and nobody could get ahold of them or their agents, which forced several prospective cons out of business. It was mostly the of the voice actors and writers who really wanted to attend that seemed to have changed Hasbro's minds and opened up their policies again just recently. We'll have to wait and see what, if any, fallout there is over this incident.

Honestly, I think we're having a problem with convention saturation. EQD has taken to making fairly regular Convention Compilation posts to cover all the cons people are organizing in different regions, and there are already several huge cons every year that are trying to become a regular thing. A huge number of them are trying to get guests from the show. Demand for guests has outstripped supply, and I think attendance will be going down because a lot of people that can and want to attend have already hit a con somewhere at some point.

the folks behind EQLA seem to have been exercising concerted effort to prevent other brony conventions in Southern California for that very reason.

I would just like to say that these ponies have the strangest form of monarchy I've ever seen.
