As I reflect upon the past year, it is clear I have a lot to be thankful for.

Dash Academy has an amazing readership, and I am truly awed by the entertaining and encouraging feedback you have been leaving! Reading your comments fuels my own excitement for the comic. A big thank you to everyone who has sent in gift art - it is always so wonderful to see what you have made. Sixty-six (!) pieces of gift art were featured in the previous journal, and I would be delighted to feature more in this journal as well (and I always keep hard copies of your art on my computer and backup drive so I can cherish them :iconpinkieforeverplz: FOREVER).

A special thank you to :icongrusnoid: who has helped me with football/rugby concepts, paypal and point donors, DeviantArt subscription donors, and to all of the Dash Academy translators! (Seventeen languages and counting!)

Onto some news and announcements:

:bulletgreen: Are you a fan of MLP-FiM's music? :iconsenn555: has organized a petition to ask Hasbro to release an official soundtrack. He has over 1000 signatures and, at the time of writing this, only needs 468 more. Check it out here:… :icondj-pon3:

:bulletpurple: :iconrainb0wdashie: has graciously donated the web domain. :iconso-awesomeplz: So awesome! I would love to have a website to post comics in conjunction with DeviantArt, however, I'm woefully untrained in website creation/maintenance so I have no idea what I'm doing! So I'm looking for site-savvy helpers. Send me a note if you have experience with websites and are interested in helping me build and manage a Dash Academy site!

New fantastic gift art!:

that doesn't seem fair that they would keep you from doing a fan film.

WAIT.................he took out the homosexuality?

that's like half the plot!

that just pisses me off.
the plot is perfect, why does he get to change it?!


oh well. i still love this comic.

i'm sorry... really, i didn't mean to make everyone upset.. I wanted to make a movie that everyone would enjoy but at the same time would preserve my own personal beliefs.. and I didn't want to break any "friendship" i may've established with Sorc because I do enjoy the comic.

late on this but WOW that is a lot of great news and fun reads. Grats on the website! I hope it gets a good site manager for it xD

It's been over a year now huh? *hugs* Such a wonderful year indeed it's been! I still check when I can despite being busy these past few months just to see if any pages to the comic were added ^^ I'm ever pleased you've stuck by this for so long, you have no idea <3 I feared with the slow updates in the past that you would lose interest as many before you have in their start. You have an amazing series going here, and you sure know how to keep us guessing and not afraid to throw ponies into a seemingly hard spot like the dance arc. That ending with Pierce complimenting Derpy as a last dutch effort to try and score :iconlunamadplz: was pretty gutsy and always keeps us on our toes. Not to mention poor Fluttershy and the Colt who missed his chance. Rainbow Dash and Firefly having a moment was pretty sweet.

Hot diggedy! Congrats!

I wish I could help with the film project.... years of smoking and drinking have left me with a raspy contralto not unlike Gilda's. If only I had a mic!

Anyway, I had a question about gift art, but I'll note you about it instead.

They're looking for Gilda's voice too. :p

I know, but I am sans microphone :(

Aw that sucks. :( It might be worth checking if your computer has an internal one. Some do.
