Markarian, the Co-Chair at Everfree Northwest, recently gained an audience from one of the higher ups at Hasbro. Their general message about us is extremely positive overall. If you have been worried about their stance on us, this is definitely something to pick up and listen to. Some of the bigger names in the community (Myself included) completely back this.
Please note that Derpy wasn't actually addressed in Markarian's conversation with Hasbro, but we can try to take this news as a positive step toward eventually securing her place in the show.
