Everfree Northwest 2014 Pre-Registration and Website Launch
Everfree Northwest, Seattle, Washington’s premiere convention for fans of My Little Pony, is happy to announce that our new website has just gone live! Currently featuring a home page, news section/blog, location information, and registration. Expect to see more updates to our website in the near future.
Coinciding with our website launch, badge registration for the upcoming 2014 convention — once again located at the wonderful Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center from July 4–6 — is now open! We are already hard at work getting ready and it’s shaping up to be our best one yet!
If you’re buying your badge, why not also go ahead and pick up your room reservation at the Hilton for the special price of $119 a night for both double-bed and king-sized rooms. Use the group code PONY14 or use this link to reserve your room at the con price.
This year’s convention theme is “Villians. Rivals… Friends?” My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has a complex relationship with its many and varied villains, from Discord’s chaos and the designs of Chrysalis. However, we’ve seen the power of friendship not only defeat these enemies and rivals, but to also reform them to good. Who could have predicted Discord would be swayed by the kindness and friendship of Fluttershy, or that Trixie would become nice and apologetic? My Little Pony is filled with tales of redemption, so what of the other villains? Could some of the more severe villains like Chrysalis or King Sombra come to see the light? How about bullies such as Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon? There is much room in My Little Pony for forgiveness between both friend and rivals, a lesson we can take with us into the real world.
Further, Everfree Northwest would like to announce both our first guest and our first pre-con contest.

Line Monkey’s chair fund has only five hours remaining. Anything you donate will directly benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. Let’s see if we can’t get a few more donations in!
Thanks to your efforts, Line Monkey has met her goal for her powerchair fund! With seven days left to donate, she wants to keep the fund going and donate any extra money to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Thanks again for your support!
New Ruiness song! And it’s my theme song!
Check out this brand new song about our very own newspony, Front Page! Also be sure to follow her ask blog at askfrontpage.
Some of our attendees may remember LineMonkey, a member of our 2013 security team. A while before Everfree 2013, she was in a car accident which left her with severe injuries. Her current manual wheelchair is less than ideal in the Northwest’s hilly environment. Please help by donating to this fund for her new powerchair. This chair will improve her mobility drastically. For those who donate to this fund, Riven’s Vagaries is offering official limited release LineMonkey swag. Buttons, mirrors, keychains, and magnets ft. none other than LineMonkey herself! Any extra money left over from the fund will be donated to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Here is what she has to say about her fund:
In June 2013, I was in a serious car accident. I worked as Security for Everfree Northwest while suffering from what we thought was only sever whiplash. This turned out not to be the case. A serious back spasm put me into a borrowed wheelchair on the last day… and may have saved my spinal cord. The day after the convention ended, I went to see my doctor. Within days I had several tests conducted, and the news was fairly grim. I had multiple micro fractures, a torn tendon, a stretched ligament, and extensive nerve damage. Surgery was discussed, but would have ended with me being in severe pain for the rest of my life. So I was told to get used to my wheelchair. My current wheelchair is a heavy, generic, manual wheelchair. It is functional, but only on flat ground. If you’ve been to the Pacific Northwest, you know that flat ground is hard to find. Hills are my nemesis. But there is hope! One of the other EFNW staff members has a lead on a good condition power wheelchair! And the asking price has been slashed in half! The only problem is getting the funds for it. Like many Americans, I have no health insurance. And the settlement from the car accident may not make it to me for another 2 years. This means that I cannot afford to fund my own chair. This is where you come in! The cost of the chair is $1500. If I can gather anything close to this amount, then I can see about working out a payment plan for the rest. If, by some miracle, more than that is donated, I plan to give the excess to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Any amount is helpful, and greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Please consider donating, and thank you for your kindness.
