Lauren Faust ( //) is the developer of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is credited as the executive producer for the first season, and consulting producer for the second. During the first season, she used her deviantArt page to reply to fans and address questions about the show. She later added a Frequently Asked Questions entry that collected these questions and answers.
Shortly after the final episode of the first season aired, Faust announced that she had left the show. Her involvement in season two concentrated on story conception and scripts; it diminished through the course of the season, and season three had no input from Faust, though it used at least one plan of hers that was not used in the first two seasons. Little, Brown's My Little Pony Friendship is Magic official guidebook My Little Pony: The Elements of Harmony is to have a foreword by Lauren Faust.
Faust's professional credits extend from voice work in 1994 through art and writing and, by 2004, directing and development of shows such as The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. She is married to the creator of both shows, Craig McCracken. She has been involved in Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony and Fighting is Magic.
She is listed in the opening and closing credits of every episode, and in the writing credits for Friendship is Magic, part 1 and part 2. Hasbro Studios' website lists her as the show's author, with her name misspelled as "Laurent Faust".
