Once in a while, we get stories like this and it’s appropriate givent the holiday season. During a blizzard, Greg and the Gems tell Steven about a story when Steven was a baby. Vidaila had let Greg use her house to take care of Steven. The Gems come by and give Steven presents he’s clearly too young for.

Steven’s gem glows and each of the Gems get an idea about what it could mean. Amethyst thinks is Rose shapeshifting, Garnet thinks Steven is a fusion trying to unfuse, and Pearl thinks it’s Rose trying to communicate. In other words, they all think it’s Rose. They take Steven and find out that Steven is Steven and not Rose and they and Greg agree to figure out things together.

It is established that changing and growing does not come naturally to Gems, though Amethyst has been depicted as younger in previous episodes. This was simply a nice story during the holiday season before yet another hiatus.

In a world of voice actors, one man stands as a guiding force, a beacon in the star-filled sky, a new hope for us all. With the strength and steadfastness of an apple tree, he cries “Eeyup.” This Spring, BABSCon is pleased to welcome back the force that is Peter New!

Peter’s iconic “Eeyup” has brought such life and character to MLP:FiM’s wise Big Macintosh, who is he is arguably one of the most beloved male characters of the show.  But Peter New isn’t just a one “Eeyup” man. Many of the other stallions we meet are voiced by Peter as well, including Rarity’s and Pinkie Pie’s dads …plus Squizzard, the mighty squid wizard. Peter also had an amazing musical number in the episode “Filli Vanilli.” Lest anyone forget, one year Peter also arrived at BABSCon’s Saturday VA panel as the glorious Princess Big Mac.

In addition to his “apple” acting, Peter New is the speaking and singing voice of Sunil Nevis on Littlest Pet Shop, made on-screen appearances on shows such as Psych, Stargate SG-1, Dead Like Me, and Point Blank, and even had a Leo Award Nominated role as Donald Dirk in Sunflower Hour.

Peter New joins Tabitha St. Germain as a Guest of Honor at BABSCon 2017 and we have a lot more industry and community guests to announce! Register now at babscon.com.

Also, be on the lookout for amazing Black Friday deals starting Thanksgiving night. Here’s a hint: the code is BLACKFRIDAY20
