**AND YET ANOTHER UPDATE**

I'm a little late to the game on this one, but Twilight is now up for bidding!

***FIND TWILIGHT AUCTION HERE***



**ANOTHER UPDATE**
Applejack up and ready for bidding!

***FIND APPLEJACK AUCTION HERE***



**UPDATE**
Pegasus Pinkie Pie is now up!

***FIND PINKIE AUCTION HERE***



******

What a pleasant surprise to wake up to!

QPop has at last started the auctions for the MLP:FiM original sketches, the first of which is for a background character fans have christened "Derpy Hooves" and in less than 24 hours, the bidding has already exceeded $1300!!!!!  All proceeds for the auctions will go to help relief efforts in Japan.

***FIND DERPY AUCTION HERE***

According to Chris at QPop, "the first one is already up and the remaining three will go up each evening at 9PM pacific time. All the auctions last 7 days."  So stay tuned for original development sketches of Applejack, Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie (from a time when she was supposed to be a pegasus!)

Thank you again to QPop and especially to Metacritter for starting all of this and from what I understand, making special effort to make sure that this auction is finally underway.

For more information, see original post here.  Happy bidding!

I was the one bidding against the fellow who is currently highest bidder on Twilight. 5300 was as high as I could go, so if you read this - I have to admit defeat. But it was all for a good cause and at least I won Derpy. ^^

Ah, so it was you I was bidding against.:) Thanks for helping drive up the price! I've been hoping to give some money to such a noble cause. Twilight has also been my favorite character since the beginning as I relate to her since I work in a research lab studying Alzheimers Disease and have a mentor I report to weekly on the progress I've been making, heh. I have a feeling I'll be outbid though as I heard someone has enough money for an $8k bid and while I can probably match it I don't think I can live with bankrupting myself.

Anyhow, good show to everyone who bid! I'll be a little disappointed to not win Twi, but at least Japan gets more money out of it!

Excellent form, friend. I hope you will win Twilight! But you're right, it's important that Japan gets some extra charity. I have a very dear friend living in Japan and life sure isn't the easiest there right now. =)

Thanks for the encouragement! I hope I win her too, but if anything I can raise the bidding price by a bit. If somehow I do get her I would definitely take her to my office at the lab where I think she would fit right in. The place needs some cheerfulness considering what we work with all day.:)

Also, thanks for bidding on and winning Derpy! I'm sure she will have a nice home where there will be plenty of muffins.

I'm currently right behind you at 5500. You wouldn't mind telling me what your max bid is so I can call someone real fast to find out if I can top your bid would you? I don't want to raise the price you are going to pay if I can't win Twilight in the end. It doesn't seam fair to do that.

I hope 2***p stops by sometime, I would like to offer congratulations if at all possible. 2***p, If you are ever in the Chicago area, let me know and we can grab some food. Cupcakes and steak is on me :)

rann here, the bidder that quit at $1850 with news for those who don't know yet. The Derpy auction's been won at $2151. That's a handsome chunk of change for Japan!

I love this fandom. Never change, not a single one of you. You're awesome!

Pasting my post from EqD:

No sniping, nothing like that.

Congratulations to whatever brony won. I hope the sketch arrives without incident and you're happy with it, especially knowing that you donated A LOT to a worthwhile cause to win.

Thank you to everypony who bid. Even if you're not the winner, you drove the price higher and made more money for Japan. Celestia be with you.

WOAH! Those are awesome! And I can honestly say, I'm glad that Pinkie Pie isn't a Pegasus. I can't wait to see your sketch of RD!

Have you ever thought about mass-printing these? I'd love to get your sketches, but I'm not willing to pay thousands for them.

ya know... i really wonder how much money this might have gotten if instead of an auction, it would've been a lottery... im reading LOTS of post about how its now way too high for people to bid on it,imagine asking ten buck out of, say, everyone at equestria daily, this site get so much hits im pretty sure the donation would've skyrocketed, now extend that to deviantart and other pony related sites... that's 40$ per person if they try every ponies, thats much more affordable.

I have got to hand it to you Mrs. Faust, with this much money you'll be making Japan is going to be really grateful for this.

This makes me wonder if you ever considered a storyline idea based on this similar incident with the gang learning the benefits of helping those unfortunate than themselves and being good friends by helping rebuild something from a disaster or something. I bet no one else gave that idea and if they did I agree with them.

That's a great idea! I'd love to see an episode about that! Fluttershy would be trying to take care of all the abandoned animals, Pinkie PIe would be cheering up anyone who was injured, Applejack'd take care of them all, Rainbow Dash would be saving people, Twilight would organize the group, and Rarity...would be off in a corner sniffling about the loss of fashion in the devastation.

Why thank you for the compliment LadyFoxling, I was hoping Mrs. Faust would like this idea.

Say... Why don't we share the idea to Mrs. Faust? She probably won't respond to my messages, but maybe she'll respond to you.

I would adore one of those originals but the prices they're going for are about 2-3 months wages for me and a girls gotta eat/pay rent. So unfortunately I'll have to pass.
