• 50+ Fanfics to Read for Pinkie Pie Day!

    Pinkie's pulling a smart and reading books. Or fanfics. That still counts right?

    Slice of Life

    Cleanse by Baal Bunny

    For as long as Rarity's operated Carousel Boutique, Pinkie Pie has come popping in at random intervals for random reasons. And that's fine: she's Pinkie Pie, after all.

    Lately, however, Pinkie's visits seem to have become quieter, less frenetic, even relaxing to a certain extent. Rarity begins to wonder if something's going on.

    The Gift of Laughter by Pascoite

    While out on a rather standard errand, a young Rarity encounters a strange new filly. A hyperactive pink one, who seems to be struggling with her own newfound talent as well.

    More Than Her Mane by Westphalian_Musketeer

    Pinkie Pie has always been random, but when she shows up to Twilight's library with a straight-cut mane, Spike is immediately worried that some tragedy has caused her to enter into a depression.

    Sometimes a girl is more than the fur on her head.

    Tainted Reflection by Imperaxum

    Does the Pinkie Pie on the left look like an unfeeling automaton? A magical construct with no capacity for thought or action beyond a simple phrase, like 'FUN'? Well, only the latter's incorrect.

    She thought it was all over when her resolve broke and she was flashed back to the mirror pool. Emerging from it for the second time in a lifetime, the first Pinkie Pie clone only knows one thing; she's alive and well, unlike every single one of her reflections. Is she just a lucky reflection? A copy?

    In the middle of the Everfree, confused, forlorn, and lost; where will she go, what in Equestria will she do?

    And why are these six ponies, including the pony she herself is a reflection of, trying so hard to find her? They were saying something about "splitting the Element of Laughter" . . .

    Can't let them catch me. No matter what it takes.

    Behind the Magic Eight Ball by Baal Bunny

    The question of how Pinkie does all the things that she does isn't one that gets asked much in Ponyville anymore. But when Applejack finds herself dissatisfied with the fortune Pinkie gives her at the Autumn Festival, Pinkie ends up revealing more of her secrets than AJ's really comfortable knowing.

    Tummy Ache by Alpha Scorpii

    Pinkie Pie has a tummy ache. Fortunately, there's some pony who will take care of her. Not her mother, but close enough.

    Ode to Friendship by Cloudy Skies

    Where the world was once her stage, the stage is now her world, and Octavia feels trapped. Will the appearance of a certain pink pony stop her descent, or will she get to mope in peace? Will Octavia get to eat her cucumber roll while she's at it?

    The answer to the last question is probably "no".

    Mind Your Elders by Denim_Blue

    Princess Celestia and Princess Luna receive an unexpected visit from none other than Pinkie Pie. This visit isn't just a social call, however. It's a visit that is of great importance, and will hopefully give Luna and Celestia something they've wanted for a long time... answers.

    Fluttershy's Extremely Odd Jobs by MythrilMoth

    One day, while working at Sugar Cube Corner, Pinkie Pie comes to a startling realization.

    She has no idea how Fluttershy earns money.

    For Pinkie Pie, not knowing something so important about one of her closest friends is intolerable. But when she asks Fluttershy, the only answer she'll give is:

    "I do odd jobs."

    Now, Pinkie Pie is determined to find out exactly what Fluttershy does to make ends meet...

    Serving Her Community by JaketheGinger

    She could've been many things after leaving Canterlot High. A baker, a comedian, a singer, a professional party planner.

    Yet instead, Pinkie chose another path in life. A road nobody thought she would ever travel. For Pinkie Pie, being a police officer is almost second nature to her.

    Chess With Pinkie Pie by The Engineer Pony

    Few would suspect that Pinkie Pie would be good at chess. A game as nuanced and subtle as chess requires concentration, strategy, and forethought. None of which Pinkie Pie possesses.


    Pinkie Pie vs. The Soufflé by Estee

    Pinkie's been an apprentice baker ever since she moved in with the Cakes, and part of that is because she hasn't completed her master piece: the dish which will prove she's worthy of the unamended title. For her, that's a soufflé. Something she's never been able to successfully bake.

    With the Cakes out of town and the bakery closed for a day, Pinkie has a chance to spend her time in trying to take that final step. And perhaps somewhere before the end of her failures, she'll learn something about why doing so was important --

    -- or if it was ever really important at all.

    The Choices We Make by Monochromatic

    Every Friday, from five in the afternoon to eleven at night, Pinkie Pie does volunteer work. She doesn't have to do it, the world won't stop if she doesn't, but she chooses to do it anyway. Even if it's doing seemingly insignificant little things.

    It is a matter of life and death, after all.

    The Brightest Timeline by protractror

    What goes wrong when nothing goes wrong?

    The Secret to Alicorn Power by naturalbornderpy

    While exploring Canterlot Castle, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash uncover a room filled with stone tablets connected to dials. Above each dial is the name of an alicorn they know.

    Uh oh.

    Rock Farms and Nuclear Reactors by Pineta

    Twilight Sparkle is aware that the manipulation of matter at the sub-atomic level is a potential source of enormous amounts of free energy.

She is therefore somewhat concerned to discover that Pinkie Pie has found another way to do this, with a curious contraption in the basement of Sugarcube Corner.

    Magical Pony Ultrasounds by AbsoluteAnonymous

    This is the story of a certain pink pony who's decided that she wants to have babies like the Cakes, and of the much-enduring pegasus who must explain to her why that might not exactly be plausible for them. Will either of them succeed in their mostly-noble endeavours? Probably not.

    Why Pinkie Pie Smiles by Anonymous Pegasus

    Everyone knows Pinkie Pie and her love of smiles. But why is she so eager to smile? Why is a smile her most valued possession?

    For Pinkie Pie, that event was Sunshine; the sick Pegasus.

    The Only One In Color by RazgrizS57

    When I was little, I came to understand the true meaning about a particular trait of mine. I don’t like to talk about it much because I’m just not much of a talkative pony. Or, well, I’m not anymore, but that’s beside the point. It’s just something I find difficult to talk about, much less explain, because unlike what I see, it’s not all black and white. It’s not like anyone could truly understand my condition anyway.

    Well, except for maybe her.

    I don't know why they're being such party poopers all of a sudden!

    Morality and Baked Goods by SkyeSilverwing

    Some might say that it was a Confluence of Magic. Others might declare it to have been the Will of Discord. Still more might claim that something in the Baker herself was to blame.

Stuck in an artistic rut, Rarity has to rely on an unlikely friend to understand who she is, and in doing so, discovers that what we want may not always be obvious, even to oneself.

    There may or may not be an excess of hats involved, and fabulosity is guaranteed.
