Six shows deep.
But then, how can six be half of thirteen?
It is simple.
Because thirteen already exists.
And so six plus six
Equals thirteen.

6 + 6 = 13?
...why am I reminded of 2 and 2 equaling 5?

I'm pretty sure he means that 312 and 313 are considered one episode like the Royal Wedding was. This technically means that episodes 307-313 is only 6 episodes.

for a shorter third season.

I've looked at a couple pieces of information, and put two and two together, and I think I now have everything figured out. Let's just say that if 313 was produced out of the order they intend to air the episodes in, and a certain voice actor recorded HIS lines when I think HE did, 313 could be "chaotic"

Something to do with the Elements of Harmony. Maybe something to do with the Original 6, or Elements of Disharmony? Still, there would have to be somepony else filling in that 13th spot, and going by what has been said, it's an already existing pony.

I think I got it.

When he says six, he's not talking about the number of episodes but rather the mane six.
This means that six and six are 6 new main characters. Making up 13 episodes.

We already heard stuff from the Hasbro about Octavia possibly making an appearance. If we assume the above, other fan characters (incl. Octavia) may be these other 6.

The reason the series is short is because Hasbro want to tryout new characters for a toy line which the KNOW bronies will throw their money at. If it flunks then they can safely rule it out and continue with the full seasons afterwards with the original mane six.

Unless the first six is really seven and there is a two-parter in that six. Then, there are six episodes left.

You could also interpret him as saying that 313 has already been completed, probably ahead of some of the others, but since I'm just some random nobody, I'd have no idea why they would do that.

You don't?

I don't know the first thing about how you guys prioritize what you work on first. Is the season 3 finale something you'd give priority to like that, where it's bumped ahead of half of the rest of the season?

the start of a season and the end of a season are usually double, but are still counted as different episodes... maybe a "lost episode" could be "discovered" by a site like equestria daily?

In other words, you're at the half way mark.

Me thinks a certain background composer is echoing the tendencies of a particular Batman villain played by the likes of Frank Gorshin and Jim Carrey.

Spoilers within:


What I think he's saying is that the 13 episodes that make up season 3 are already animated, and awaiting him to write the background music. Logically he would do it in production order, so that would make the premiere a two parter. The best I figure, the songs debuted at SDCC are from the premiere, and I doubt they'd tell an epic story about this supposed "Crystal Empire" in only one part, so 301 and 302 are definitely part of the same show. This means he's completed 301-307, and still has 308-313 to go.

You could also interpret him as saying that 313 has already been completed, probably ahead of some of the others, but since I'm just some random nobody, I'd have no idea why they would do that.

The first production span was supposed to produce 26 episodes, but Faust pushed for two more episodes so that they can keep the same crew for the next season. So that means only 24 episodes were made in the second production span, but maybe someone pushed for more episodes to be made, so they made another episode.

Which means episode 13 is already done, and now six more episodes are done, and six are left to be finished.

Because 13 isn't a show...?

Sounds to me like you guys already had one in the bin before you started on season three. If memory serves, you guys had the first two in the bin before starting season 2.

It's very simple math, really. The fact that 13 "exists" would imply that it was something needed to be finished prior to the other 12, almost hinting that a greater level of performance and attention was needed to work on it. So we have 1 show set off to the side, primped and pressed, while a continuance of the remaining 12 resumes.

You are now 6 deep in that process, creating the halfway mark to 12, so 6 and 6 more will make 13 complete.

Although we have the reassurance that these "13" are but one season and that longer seasons are to follow, it will be sad when it ends and we enter a drought until the 4th season. I have the high hopes that episode 13 itself will be a special that is twice as long as a standard episode.

I thank you kindly, willheim, for providing us with these hints and codes, though indirectly stating them. ;) It's a unique form of reassurance, that it is.

simple and effective. im getting that 13, or one of the episodes is completed, 6 are either done, or are in the final stages of completion, and that 6 more are in very early stages of completion. either way im exited to see more of your fantastic work ^_^ (and everything else that season 3 will bring)

I'm just going to take a wild guess here and say this is about MLP. (I know, crazy, right?)
What confuses me the most is that you say "six *shows* deep" and not "six episodes"... Still, I'm going to regard that as 6/13 episodes.
So, the 13th episode is already done? That means that someone else is working on it. Hmm...
This also probably rules out the possibility of this Season ending on a two-parter.

In any case, 6 episodes done already, wow. You're doing great! Can't wait to see them!

Also, keep on going with the lovely poetic and cryptic journal posts and stories!
