Dear Apple Cider, Chef Sandy, Starry Night and this week's awesome special guest(s),

First of all, I would like to say that I love the show, even though I've actually only been listening to it for a few weeks - this has easily become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to (and it is definitely the most organized, even when Sandy isn't around and Cider is allowed to be the "Bad Idea Pony").

I am in a state where there are no meetup groups (or, at the very least, none that I can find). Because of this, I have decided to attempt to start one up in the city I go to college in. I know that there are bronies here, but I have no clue what I should do in order to set up a successful meetup. What advice would you all give to a meetup rookie like myself?



P.S. - Since this seems to be the part of an email where one's feelings on best pony are stated, I shall do that here: Pinkie Pie is my personal favorite, but I love almost every pony at least a little bit (and I tolerate the few that I don't love).

Hey Applecider, Sandy, Random girl in the background, and guest/s. I was just wondering: What do you guys think about Dash joining the wonderbolts? Personally, I think shes way too good for them. Sonic Rainboom proves it. In this ep Dash saves 3 wonderbolts AND Rarity, when the 3 Wonderbolts couldnt even save Rarity.(ONE pony). I think Dash would end up regreting her choice and leaving the wonderbolts if she ever did join. Just wondering what your thoughts were!

Ps. Oh yeah I wanted to know: Do any of you know of any good fanfics that feature the entire Mane6 that does NOT have romance (or at least not much) and are pretty much action/adventure based? Im really in need of a good fic and cant seem to find a decent one lately.

PPS. AND ALL PONIES ARE BEST PONIES but Rainbow dash is best, best, BEST pony:) With Pinkamena as a close second.

Dear Ketchup Cider and Chef Mustard,

More tabletop sessions! More tabletop sessions! I demand it. The fans demand it. All the fillies that want Apple Cider demand it! But seriously, that was a great session. I loved the first iteration and this last one just upped the ante on hilarity and brought back fond memories of those college D&D games that lasted through the weekends. In one instance, a perfectly-timed joke and event came together to form a comedy singularity and the whole group laughed about it for the next 2 hours. Really. The game ground to a halt just so we could keep spouting one-liners and bad puns. Thanks for that, gentlemen. Bravo Zulu! As a side note, if any of your other listeners play Star Trek Online, I'd like to promote the United Equestria Space Fleet. We've got some fantastic members and are always looking for more. We can be found under the Guilds listings on Equestria Gaming. Keep up the exceptional work.

Hello Apple Cider, Recurring guest Chef Sandy(old joke), Random Girl in the background(U mad?) Starry Night, and other guest or guests. (Unless Sandy is not there, In which case I guess I'll say Hi to Mblsht instead.)

I would say I love the show, but I'm writing you an email so that's kind of a given.

The reason I am writing this is because I am currently writing a fan fiction called R3B0UNd, It is a Pinkie Pie / Vinyl Scratch shipping fic and you should totally check it out (Achievement get! Shameless Plug). and I wanted to have your OCs cameo in it if that's okay with you.

now on the off chance that this makes the show, here's a question, If you actually lived in ponyville, which pony do you think you would be best friends with? and don't just say twilight and rainbow guys, just because they are your favorites does not mean *yay*, think about who you would want to spend time with and who would want to spend time with you. for example my favorite pony is Pinkie Pie, but as far as friends go I would probably want to hang out with twilight,(best study buddy EVAR!) because I share her love of books.

I would also like to suggest the fanfic "The Marvelous Adventures of Pinkie Pie: Crasherdude Awesome VS Mooncloud Shadowdancer" by Morty. It was the third place winner of the February Write-Off and deserves as much Exposure as it can get.

sincerely Mr.Darkboy2010

PS. Seriously, read my fic!

Hey guys; AC, Sandy, random girl in background, and guest/s. I was just curious: Who are your LEAST favourite ponies? Don’t worry AC, I wont make cupcakes out of you if you say Rainbow dash, though I may be tempted.Personally, mine is Twilight Sparkle. (No, Im not just saying that because i wanna make AC mad.) Also, I have something a little strange to tell you.......My parents hate MLPFim. They think it is a negative show... I do not understand this as I see the show as having good morals. I seriously dont get this... Am I like,....missing something? What could be negative about ponies??!! what do you guys think about.....this oatmealness, As AC would say?. Anyway love you guys I never listen to any other podcast.

Dear Princess Celestia,

Apple Cider isn’t here right now. He is currently locked up in my closet while me and my girl brony friends take over this podcast and up the cool a few notches. I know you would approve!

Your faithful student,

Starry Night
