Sorry to flood you with questions!

But I really want to know, what is your favorite character in animation?

When was MLP the most popular? Do you have got any statistics in general to share with us?

Thanks for the welcome!  I don't really have any stats on MLP popularity, they try to keep us writers away from spreadsheets and figures. :D  It's a great Hasbro marketing question!

What shows/movies have the biggest influence on your writing. Not just for Friendship is Magic, but for your work as a whole?

Hi Mrs. Dubuc! :) 

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us! :D 

Were there any specific episodes that helped you decide to become a part of Friendship is Magic?

Also, considering that you graduated Pre-Med, what made you decide to pursue writing, rather than medicine?

 How did you come up with the design of Cozy Glow as a villain?


Is it set in stone that the upcoming season will be the last of FiM?

(Prob aren't allowed to reply for 2nd question, I assume)

What’s the most important part of being an executive producer?

Hmmm... Well, on Pony, I think the most important part was collaborating with all sides of the team - Hasbro, marketing, legal/standards & practices, the creative force at DHX, Josh, and the writers -- to make sure we were all on the same page (so to speak) about the stories we wanted to tell.

I'll ask too!

What do you think of Starlight Glimmer?

I answered this but it looks like it disappeared.  I said something like:  "Haha, getting straight to the loaded questions!  I'm hard-pressed to think of any characters I don't like in MLP.  So I like Starlight."

What a pleasure it is to speak with a producer of MLP

Do you have a favorite NON MANE 6 charactor

Thank you!  It's great speaking with you as well!  I have TONS of faves on this show. I love Discord.  I love Silverstream.  The CMCs!!! And I will always have a soft spot for Cozy.  She's my evil child, LOL.

Thank you very much!  I didn't speak directly with Mr. Zahn, but I did reread his wonderful books before I started writing, and when I spoke to him after the episodes had aired, he was so gracious and kind about the result!

Heya. Not really a question, but I first connected who you were from your earlier works after watching your Rebels episode because the writing felt so spot on that I was sure it him. Goes to show how much you nailed him, Hera, and company.

Have you ever written a character based on someone that you know? If so, who was that character?

I'll start us off to get the ball rolling: Ms. Dubuc, by this point in MLP G4's run, we've already seen quite a few episodes set in or centered around Hearth's Warming Eve.  With this in mind, what compelled you and the rest of the creative team behind "Best Gift Ever" to come up with a 45-minute Hearth's Warming Eve special in the same vein as some of the all-time holiday classic film and TV specials?

Hi Batbrony!  Thanks for helping set this all up!  The special actually wasn't anything I planned. Hasbro requested us to come up with a long-form story featuring Hearth's Warming, and Vogel and I put our heads together to get the ball rolling. I was working with him on the CMC Mysteries books already, and he's such a collaborative, creative writer to work with. He wrote a fabulous script, and I'm really grateful we got to work on the project together.  As always, there's a creative process with lots of notes and story changes - it takes more time the longer the format you're writing for. For a while, Vogel was calling this "Friendship, Actually," since we didn't have a set-in-stone title yet.

with the Kirin being in the fan-made content for so long,did it influence the decision on adding them, or was it an idea of its own?

"Friendship, Actually" may very well be one of the best titles in the history of anything.

Got another "Best Gift Ever" question for ya.  What holiday specials and films, if any, particularly influenced you and the creative team?  It seems that one of the biggest aspects of "Best Gift Ever" that sets it apart from previous Hearth's Warming Eve episodes is how well the ensemble cast is utilized, truly painting a very true-to-life picture of how hectic the holiday season can get for people and all of the varying, individual narratives that go into making these celebrations happen and as special as they are.  I can think of a number of holiday classics that similarly capture these elements of the season, but I'm curious to hear from you if any in particular inspired the creative team.

Good afternoon, Mrs. Dubuc. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer our questions. Here's mine:

Did your husband, Mr. Brian Hohlfield influence your decision to join Friendship is Magic or vice versa?

Thanks for having me here!  I pulled Brian onto MLP:FiM.  Since he was already watching episodes with me as I got up to speed on the job, it wasn't a very hard sell.  And he's a fantastic writer, so I was very glad I got him onboard.

Welcome and thank you for making time for this,

Did you seek to work on the MLP franchise or did they seek you?

Hi there!  Thank you!  Meghan asked me to join FiM - I was down the hall working on Rescue Bots.

That he is. His episodes were nothing short of fantastic! As were yours. I hope to see him return for Season 9.

Nicole.  It's been awhile since San Diego.  I was the guy who gave youbthe drawings (Including the Starlight vs Tirek seEing)

 

Anyway, my questions are....

 

1) Have your team ever consider doing some MLP youtube shorts like the Equestria Girls youtube series?

 

2) Has Hasbro ever consider a Live Action Celestia movie(Maybe with Nicole Oliver as Celestia)?

I remember you!  I have those drawings in my office. :)  
1) and 2) All those decisions are up to the marketing team at Hasbro, sorry! :P

Good evening Mrs. Dubuc,

First off all, thank you for joining us here for this Q&A, as i know that you most likely have a busy schedule.

To my question now. As we have discovered over the course of now 9 seasons of My Little Pony, that there are a wide variety of Pony creatures and not just the traditional earth, Pegasus and Unicorn ponies.
We also have species like Batponies, Breezies (which kinda are ponies) hippogriffponies and seaponies (or both like silverstream and Terramar).

My question is, What do you think of other pony hybrids that the fandom has created? Hybrids really fascinate me and concepts like Snakeponies or Deerponies really are interesting for me.

Thank you. :)

Greetings Ms. Dubuc. Thanks for taking the time to join us here on MLP Forums.

Now for my question: What made you get into television?

Hi there!  Thanks for the warm welcome!  

I got into TV as an actress when I was three.  What's kept me here is the tremendous satisfaction in being able to collaborate with talented artists, actors, and other creatives to build a world and engaging characters to share with others. :)

Since you were involved with the creation of the Student Six {is it Young six officially?}, I have to ask... what would happen if Silverstream encountered an escalator?
