    Have you ever felt like the Universe was out to get you? Well, pat yourself on the back, because you're absolutely right. The Universe is a huge jerk, and its favorite pastime is frying planets with supernovas the moment so much as an amoeba crawls out of the primordial soup.

Is this bizarre vegetation the bakery's saving grace, or will Pinkie Pie find it's growing appetite too much to handle?
    A greedy corporate baron, a ravenous plant, musical numbers, and romance. Three of these four things are in this story, and since there's no shipping tag, you only get one guess.

    Ponygeist: A Nightmare Night Tale by SuperGiantRobot
    It is Nightmare Night. The annual party — hostessed...ed(?) by Pinkie, naturally — is in full swing. There's dancing, games, snacks, happy ponies... the whole nine yards. Possibly even TEN yards. While touring the crowd, Pinkie sees a strange glow and hunts it down, finding somepony dressed in the most realistic ghost costume she'd ever seen (if she'd ever SEEN a ghost, that is - odds are it would probably look a lot like this if she had).

    So Long, And Thanks for All the Ponies by Sir Ginger
    More popular than the "Celestia's Homecare" omnibus, better selling than "Fifty-Three More Things to do When Trapped on the Moon", and more controversial than the infamous "Cupcakes", how does the story of this remarkable book differ in a universe full of... pony? After escaping the destruction of Equestria at the hands of some big ol' meanies, Pinkie Pie leads her friends on a series of baffling, mind boggling and downright nonsensical adventures through a galaxy where harmony is in short supply, but aliens, monsters and chaos are most definitely not. Gasp! As they meet strange alien creatures! Cry! As emotional torment assails our characters! Groan! As the Author includes yet another 4th wall break! And most importantly, DON'T PANIC

    Party Animal by PresentPerfect
    No singing, no baking, no parties, no smiling.
    The accident five years ago didn't just drive a wedge between Pinkie Pie and her friends, it stole her very identity. She had no choice but to move back home, to a hard life of farming rocks and managing her condition. Since then, she's built her family's farm into a successful corporation and the backwater town of Big Rock into a bustling city. But none of that gives her purpose.
    When a new danger arises, threatening everything she's worked for an everypony she loves, will Pinkie be able to do what's necessary to save them? Or will her demons finally overtake her?

    I Am Not the Actor by cleverpun
    She's the original. She won the paint-watching test, fair and square.
    So why do the townsponies keep avoiding her? Why do all her friends keep whispering around her? And why does Twilight keep insisting that she isn't any good at baking or throwing parties?
    She's the original. The best Pinkie. She won the test, fair and square. She's not some copy, not anymore…but perhaps being a copy would be easier than being herself.

    How Ponyville Was Made by Cola_Bubble_Gum
    Ooooooh, I know how I should start the story! I do I do! It should start with 'once upon a time'! Right?
    No?
    Awwww, I guess you're right, Cola. Everyone likes it the way it is now!
    (Oh, and it's a story about when I was a little filly and my friends were all colored rocks! She said it needs that or else nobody'll know what it's about when they click it -- whatever that means!)

    Her Own Pony by Jorofrarie
    YOU ARE NOT THE REAL PINKIE PIE!"
    "You probably shouldn't even exist."
    "You're only a clone, you don't HAVE any feelings!"
    Who was she to believe? She was barely a day old, and already she'd seen the disappearance of her mirror images, all but her. Was she just a clone? A disposable unfeeling analog?
    What would happen if she became her own pony? If she became real?
    Is it possible for one of the Pinkie's, the only copy left behind, to develop? To become an entirely different pony to the one that she was modelled after?

    Look Up by Dark Avenger
    Based on the scene at the very end of "The Last Roundup": Pinkie Pie and Rarity are left stranded in the Badlands, their long and agonizing journey home requiring them to spend a night alone in the desert. It is here that the latter discovers a painful secret hidden beneath her friend's constant cheerful demeanor.
    Despite not being the one famous for bringing a smile to everypony's face wherever she goes, the exhausted (and most unacceptably filthy) fashionista does everything in her power to make her happy again...

    Imaginary by TheSlorg
    Life is full of challenges.
    Pinkie Pie knows that, and will always try to help her friends smile no matter the circumstances.

    More Than She Could Dream Of by Melon Hunter

    With her newly blossoming love life causing friction between her and her friends, will Pinkie really find happiness with her special somepony?
    Or will Surprise turn out to be more than she could dream of?

    What is a Name? by Key Tapper
    I've spent the majority of my life tilling the desolate land in which I live. Every day, I wake up to move useless rocks from one location to another. This is an archaic line of work that my family has clung to for generations. It is a dull, grey existence.
    Today, I have woken up in a strange room, lying in a bed that isn't mine. I'm surrounded by five mares whom I've never seen in my life. They claim to be my friends, and expect me to bring joy to the hearts of everypony.
    Joy? I don't think I've ever experienced this for myself, so how am I supposed to thrust it upon others?
    My name is Pinkamena Diane Pie, and I'm not sure what to make of this situation.

    Pink, Blue, and Ivory by Appleloosan Psychiatrist

    A Rose Reverie by JDMHouse
    Fear, a misunderstanding... betrayal; it all began with those. Ponyville's most energetic, most joyful, most entertaining occupant... imprisoned behind locked doors and barred windows. Even a consummate optimist wouldn't last long in this place, and yet here she is. Trapped in a world where the only escape is the oblivion of sleep; a rose reverie.

    Sunny Skies and Pinkie Pies by ugugg93
    With her formal coronation complete, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna have invited Princess Twilight Sparkle to the capital to undergo formal instruction how to rule.

    Then Pinkie tagged along.

    Swear On Camembert by scoots2
    Sometimes you have to laugh, so you don't have to cry. Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich may have more in common than they thought, including Ponyacci, the greatest clown in all of Equestria.

    Just Being Pinkie Pie by HoofBitingActionOverload
    At the start of every storm, Pinkie Pie forsakes the safety and comfort of her home to gallop out into the rain and the lightning, and sit on the tallest hill in Ponyville. Everyone writes her behavior off as her "just being Pinkie Pie". That's true, though. She is being Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Pie would do anything to show a friend that she cares, and she knows one friend who is closer to the storms than anyone else. She knows that by showing her love for the storms when no one else will, she's showing her love for the pony who makes those storms.

    Twice as Bright by Cloudy Skies
    Celestia likes her routine. Tax reforms, grants, laws and construction projects are all a princess needs to be content.
    It's just her luck that for Pinkie Pie, "content" is not nearly enough.

    Stubborn as Ponies by Esle Ynopemos
    A pony is called stubborn when they refuse to change their mind no matter the persuasion against them. A pony is called persistent in hindsight when their refusal turns out to be a wise decision. "Persistence" is nothing more than what they call stubbornness when it turns out to have been for the best all along.
    Pinkie Pie and Applejack may or may not be persistent, but they are most definitely stubborn.

    Yes, the black and white pegasus who steps out of the glowing mirror seems very nice, but Pinkie's twitches tell her that this is her evil twin. And when Pinkie makes her own journey through the mirror to meet even more Pinkies and even more Pies, well, that just means more fun! Doesn't it?
