    Slice of Life




    The Joy Hive by TheDriderPony


    Pinkie Pie is a very busy mare. Between her friends and her family, her party-planning job and her world-saving Element duties, she barely has any time for herself. Sometimes she wishes she had some help.

    This wish is answered in the form of a small changeling, lost and alone.

    Little did she or he know what series of events this would kickstart, or the marvelous new chapter it would open in the party mare's life.


    The Holiday At The End Of The World by KitsuneRisu


    Under the last tree at the end of the world, two ponies discuss the events that led them there and what the future holds.


    Blur by Fire Gazer the Alchemist


    After realizing that Pinkie Pie is, without a doubt, one of the fastest ponies she's ever met, Rainbow Dash decides to challenge her to a race.

    If only she knew what she was getting into.


    Cogito ergo sum by TwiwnB


    "Cogito ergo sum" - I think therefore I am (Descartes)

    Some things are simple and obvious when you are a rational and smart pony like Twilight Sparkle. But when you try to make a crazy mare like Pinkie Pie obey the rules of logic, you should expect at least some challenge.

    But that's not a story about logic. It was supposed to be, but it isn't. Or at least not anymore. I think it's just a story about two friends spending some time together...


    That's All by Archmage Ludicrous


    A vignette regarding a pragmatic pony.


    The Brightest Timeline by protractror


    What goes wrong when nothing goes wrong?


    The End of a Quest by wYvern


    Old Thunder was a sailor all his life. As the years pass by, he grows ever more restless about finding his own harbor. One fateful night in a tavern he meets one very pink mare that might change his view on things.


    Sketchwork by Casketbase77


    Fierce foalhood bullying taught Applejack to keep a certain hobby of hers to herself. Years of holding it in has made her a bit skittish, but like every pony with a secret, it was only matter of time until she got caught.









    The Time Killer by Silent Whisper


    Pinkie's trying to solve a murder, but other things keep distracting her. Like Rarity. And the missing corpse. And Rarity.


    Who Is Pinkie Pie? by Irrespective


    Pinkie Pie, party planner extraordinaire. Any pony who spends more than five minutes in Ponyville will be introduced to Pinkie with an explosion of confetti and a party.

    So how is it possible for a pony to live in her town and have no idea who she is?


    The Night Watch's Red Tape by LightOfTriumph


    Pinkie is looking for more lucrative work so that she can eventually start her own bakery, so she's applied to be one of the Night Guard. The job pays well, and the benefits are fantastic...

    But in order for her to take the job she has to undergo a change.

    Is it worth transforming into a Thestral for 750 bits a week and full health and dental? She'll have to think carefully.


    Discord Finds Out if Pinkie is a Draconequus by Soothing Stone


    Pinkie Pie has mystified Discord for a long time. How is it that she can regularly break the laws of physics, be everywhere at once, and never run out of energy? In many ways, she reminds him of his own abilities. That gets him thinking about things, and a lightbulb goes off in his head.

    This brainstorming gives Discord a rather interesting theory, one he's eager to find out if it's correct. If so, it would delight him to no end. Of course, he has to put his theory to the test, in the way only a draconequus can.

    It might be a good idea to pray for Pinkie's safety right about now.


    Five Minutes in a Balloon by Rocket Lawn Chair


    The Equestrian Exploration Institute: an organization devoted to further the intellectual and terrestrial exploits of the land of Equestria. Who other than the dauntless Pinkamina Diane Pie would be better suited to handle the precipitous perils populating the uncharted reaches?

    Based loosely upon Jules Verne's Five Weeks in a Balloon.

    Make that very loosely.


    Gambling Foals by Coyotek4


    The Flim Flam brothers introduce gambling to Las Pegasus, and Rainbow Dash is quickly drawn to the allure of the new games while Pinkie remains indifferent ... but when Rainbow's luck takes a turn for the worse, can Pinkie salvage their vacation plans?


    Villain Cube Understands by Palm Palette


    Sometimes ponies just have a bad day. They spill their cereal, trip in the mud, have their checks bounce, and get attacked by an extradimensional geometrical entity. Villain Cube knows what that's like. He understands what they're going through. He's there for them, to listen as they bare their troubled hearts, and also to set them on fire.

    Note: This story crosses over with Equestria Girls, but is set in the pony world.


    Cold Case by Bachiavellian


    When a special birthday cake goes missing, it's up to Private Eye Pinkie Pie to figure out which of her friends is the culprit!


    The Very Literal Rise and Fall of Pinkie Pie by 4EverfreeBrony


    When delivering a gift to a sick Twilight, Pinkie finds herself lacking a sense of ground...

    ...in the most literal way possible.


    Waiting on Death by Georg


    War, Famine, and Pestilence await their last member so the Apocalypse may properly begin. The only problem is he’s tied up in a meeting with his editor. What is he writing? Um. Look! A moose!

    Can Pinkie Pie assuage the impatience of the remaining Horsemen of the Apocalypse with cupcakes until their last member finishes his work of Equestrian Literature?


    Department of Redundancy Department by Eliot Kane


    Pinkie Pie has a spare of everything. Even emergencies. You know, in case of emergency emergencies.


    A Rubber Mask Of Emotions by zaponator


    Pinkie Pie's 'cousin Horsey' comes to visit, but Twilight Sparkle is suspicious. Sometimes we wear masks to hide our true feelings... sometimes that can be taken literally.


    Cherry Bomb by The Rarispy


    Pinkie Pie has decided to mount an effort on making the legendary "Chimmicherrychanga" a reality, but when word spreads around town, suddenly everypony is interested in Pinkie's cherry-filled venture for one reason or another. Some see her new creation as a blessing, others wish to destroy it. Sacre bleu, mon cherry.


    Special Relativity by Melon Hunter


    Pinkie Pie is on top of the world right now. Why wouldn't she be? She just found out that she's a part of the most awesome family in Equestria (well, almost definitely). However, when a chance encounter in the market leads to the discovery of another distant Apple cousin in Ponyville, she realises that everypony should have a chance to know if they're related to the best family ever!

    The only problem is, 'family' has very different meanings for different ponies...


    Popping Twilight's Cherry by ambion


    Becoming an alicorn has been hectic, and it's nice for Twilight to be able to kick back for a moment and do something she loves, with Pinkie Pie no less.

    Science, of course. Why, what were you thinking? Though shouting your 'Eureka' moment in the streets is bound to get ponies thinking...









    All Things in Time by Zontan


    It's been a hundred years since Twilight was crowned. Most of her original friends are gone. Now, only Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy remain, each with a spark of something special keeping them past their time.

    But unlike Twilight, neither of them has a claim to true immortality.


    Like a Rolling Stone by A Hoof-ful of Dust


    Little Pinkamina has a conversation with her older sister about her future in rock farming.


    Nothing to Say by DuncanR


    Before she discovered her cutie mark, young Pinkie Pie led a somber and dreary life on the family rock farm. Of course, that doesn't mean she never dreamed of something more. She makes plenty of friends after her first week of school, and she's starting to open up... but making friends isn't always easy. There's a spooky and frightening neighbor next door that she never even knew about, and poor Pinkie Pie just can't bear to let her stay all alone forever.

    But not everyone wants to make friends. And getting others to open up isn't always easy. How can you understand someone's feelings when they refuse to say a single word? Pinkie Pie intends to find out.


    As I Lay Smiling by shortskirtsandexplosions

    Will he be able to overcome the trials that come with being Pinkie's "friend"? And how will he prepare for what's to come?


    The Party Hasn't Ended by butterscotchsundae


    Pinkie Pie's unrequited love for Rainbow Dash reaches crisis point as she fears the party in her heart has at long last come to an end.


    It Bombed In Seaddle by scoots2

He's fighting it as hard as possible, but when his career literally bombs, he may have no choice but to give up---or give in. Either way, he has to ask Pinkie Pie for her help.


    Rarity's Lucky Charm by Monochromatic


    When Rarity accidentally breaks a mirror, Pinkie decides there's only way to save her crush from seven years of bad luck.

    Obviously, the solution is becoming Rarity's personal anti-bad luck bodyguard.









    Reunion by The 24th Pegasus


    A lot can change in a thousand years. For a pony out of her time like Somnambula, it can be disorienting and confusing. With her mind full of worries about her home, she decides to take a trip south to see her old hometown. But will she really find peace in a place where so much has changed, or does she perhaps have another reason for making the journey?









    Pinkie Pie and The Quest for Missing Smiles by Venates


    Pinkie Pie's entire day revolves around getting every pony she meets to feel happy. She's a master of it all, from practical jokes to slapstick comedy. Sure, she's had a few tough nuts to crack, but in the end those nuts always crack a smile!

    ...Except for today. A strange spell has infected Pinkie's home, somehow leaving only her immune to the effects. Clearly there is only one solution: an epic adventure to return the smiles back to Ponyville! With her trusty sidekick Gummy at her side, there will be no stopping her quest!

    Rainbow Dash reveals the little-known fact that pegasi can survive in outer space, and Pinkie Pie dares her to take her to the moon, so that she can party with the moon ponies. Space is full of dangers beyond a simple lack of air, but with a little help from her friends, Pinkie Pie just might win past them all and prove that ponies can party wherever they please. Even if the moon is full of weasels.
