More stuff about efforts to help regular con-goers stranded at Unicon or stuck with full-price room fees after paying only the con rates. Not the celebrities or guests, just the average folks who got all this dumped on them.

This is the right thread for this.


This guy is an undergrad at my school!

Also, should I presume that I missed the conversation about Alicorn Twilight?

Well nobody in here threw a hissy fit about it, if that's what you mean. The actual discussion is just a few pages back. This thread moves slow, like Tank.

Thank you, sir!

Yeah, I'm a little disappointed by the pacing of it. It would have been such a cool thing to have as a series finale. But I guess the guys who are paying for it want to rake in the money from winged Twilight sales.

I also kinda hate that they've turned it into yet another "girl" story about being a princess. Woo. Original.

It almost feels like it was going to be the series finale, but a fourth season was already confirmed from financial reports before S3 was over.

Yeah, it would have been cool to have it at the very end of the series, and use the last season or two to kind of hint at it.

The orchestral soundtrack for the Past Sins fanfic is now up to Chapter 10 (parts one and two), and clocks in at just over two hours so far. Almost halfway there! Say what you will about the story it's based on (I have avoided reading it, like all fanfics!), but this is some quality soundtrackery.

WHERE ARE YOUR EPIC ORCHESTRAL SOUNDTRACKS FOR MIDDLING FANFICS, WHOVIANS? Razz And stuff dedicated to Dr. Hooves doesn't count.

yeah, uh, just the length of "Past Sins" alone has me going "nope"

also i am finally reading more on the Las Pegasus Unicon cockup and holy fucking christ am i happy i skipped on that. some people from the SoCal meetup group invited me to go, since it was on my birthday; i declined because i had work to do and because spending hours on end in a car with a bunch of bronies sounds moderately hellish to me, and now i see i would've also been bilked for every cent i have and then some and stranded in Las Vegas.

so, uh, nyah. what a mess.

More stuff on Las Pegasus Unicon:
A long and in-depth summation of events so far from Final Draft of Everfree Radio. Highlights include: explanations of the fundraising efforts for both the VIP guests and the average con-goers, what happened to the vendors at the con who often got stuck with worthless con vouchers instead of cash for their merch, and possible illegal billing by the hotel for the guests.
A Google Doc with a shorter summary and information gathered over the last few days about the con organizers and what happened, plus context with other failed or fraudulent conventions from other fandoms.
This kind of thing has happened before, either by plans going awry or by intentional scamming. The agents for the VIP guests (voice actors, writers, etc.) were all extremely grateful for the fund raising to cover their clients (the money raised so far covered about 90% of their expenses) and encouraged the community fundraising effort to help bail out the normal attendees.
There's also an ongoing effort to find out more about the Unicon organizers, with some evidence of potentially shady dealings. That could be paranoid, but like I said it's happened before. That's why getting information is important.

*edit* And Derpy Hooves News has an update mostly dealing with the fundraising efforts.

That's got to be almost as electrifying as this happening.

In a way, this is better than what the game was originally going to be.


Actually, depending on how it pans out, it's just better overall.

Yes, its true

its not a shame
the woman who
brought them to fame
has offered to
work on the game.
