Team Cloudsdale preparing/training for the winter games ice skating race:
Grinding to raise levels for the games:
Dragons aren't good for raising your level quick though.
A supernova of fireworks:
Raspberry and others taking over the Naiad rock in the Heartlands:
It was short lived though:

Scavenger hunt. Raspberry did good in it:
Flight race. Maverick failed to place:

Aerial view of another:
Team Cloudsdale after their winter games airshow at Crystal Empire castle:
Ellowee decided to liven it up a bit with mob spawns:
Who keeps unblocking the cave to the mirror pool?
Raspberry decided to take up artisan to get a set of iridescent armor and upgrade it with harmonies.
Her successful attempt at pearlescent armor:
And her finished set of iridescent. She wanted to make some lv 4 harmonies for it and worked very hard at raising her level and gathering supplies, only to find out it was in vain as she could make harmonies no higher than lv 3:
Raspberry in the storm:
Random SCC moment :
Raspberry's somewhere in that steam bath:
One of those rare moments when the mobs are chill. In this case in the bramble woods (entered with a group of others, and for some reason they became invisible to me and the enemies went calm. It cleared up with a server reset):
I decided to hold an event celebrating the 8 year anniversary of the New Lunar Republic trope (//[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf0tYs5U5RI[/youtube]) (April 24th) with a photoshoot event and airshow put on by the new Wind Riders (or Wind Howlers for this event as our version of the Shadowbolts).
The centerpiece act was a tornado of pegasi using fireworks:
Remember what I said about the mirror pool?
One of the clones fighting a hornet at Midway:
Another mob calm moment:
The NLR event started at the castle ruins:
The best princess herself showed up and thanked everyone for their support, and passed out rock candy:
From there the army of the night headed to Ponyville:
Finally Canterlot, where the castle was stormed and taken over:
The Wind Howlers then put on what was one of their best airshows yet:
After event party at SCC:
Papa and his family in front of SCC:
