I actually have this on a T-shirt! It's an awesome design although I'm sometimes hesitant to wear it when I go out since it's so seasonal. Not your fault, of course — the idea of people wearing it probably wasn't on your mind when you drew it!
The reason why lyre's into all of irish st patricks day fan art is because her cutie mark represents the music symbol of ireland and also she's green. (Thanks for keeping my irish pride up you really made my day)
You're the one who made that? Looks great. Surprised to see "Lyra" is the main focus of the cover. I like Spike's outfit to. Very St. Patties Day. (Though like every holiday, they probably call it something else in "Pony World Land.")
Yeah, fans/we wanted them to use their/our fan-created names. I'm a little disappointed (as are others) that they called Bon Bon (our name borrowed from a G1 character on the second TV show) "Sweetie Drops".
If [link] (LHS) isn't working for you (try the link again), what about its sister site, [link] Derpy Hooves News (DHN)?
Maybe they couldn't use the name "BonBon" anymore. I heard that Hasbro couldn't use alot of the G1 MLP names anymore, sense they don't have the rights to them. (Lauren Faust originally wanted to use more besides "Applejack.")
