    And then Twilight Sparkle wasn't by Equimorto


    Twilight didn't ask for her consciousness to be ripped from her mortal frame as her world was torn asunder, only to be forced into manifesting onto an ethereal plane as the all-seeing avatar of Logic and Magic. In fact, she didn't really get any sort of say in the matter. But Pinkie got there too, so that was at least something.









    Cranky Doodle Donkey's Bad Asssssss Day by Einhander


    Cranky had a plan to make Matilda's Hearts and Hooves Day the best day of her life. Instead, he's in jail for (allegedly) running over Pinkie Pie with his cart.

    Everypony Dies by a3V


    When Pinkie Pie is charged by Rarity to promote her cloth dyeing competition, she does it in one of the many methods she is familiar with.

    As a favor to Twilight, Pinkie Pie goes to the Crystal Empire to help Princess Cadance plan her baby shower. Everything goes well... at least until one pony falls into a coma and another pony gets zapped back in time where she becomes a child's plaything.

    It's a long story...


    Aftercrud by Estee


    Missions are dangerous, and sometimes the Bearers get hurt. But this time, treating Pinkie's injuries only took about an hour. No sealant to constantly reapply and lingering deep aches from the wound: just a simple, magical regrowing of her left forehoof's keratin. Really, it's a pity the procedure isn't available to the public yet.

    And because it isn't available to the public yet, there's just one little thing which the inventing company's representative wants Pinkie to do. One little thing that leads into a full swarm of not-so-little things.

    It's okay. It's for science!


    "Anything for you, Pinkie." by PaulAsaran


    Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash have been dating for some time now. It's been nothing but awesome, and thus Rainbow's decided she wants to pop the question.

If Rainbow really wants to tie the knot, she'll have to resort to drastic measures.


    Heroes of Earthlight by DmitriTheWriter


    Things already seem weird when both Pinkie Pie and Ahuizotl wake up on the Moon and find out that they're both the Chosen One. But when they encounter an army from beyond the stars, they'll have to put their differences aside and do battle on the Moon to save the world.

    Letting Go by Trick Question


    Most of the time, Pinkie Pie is the happiest, most cheerful of ponies, but she often has a hard time coping with loss.

    Today we see just how hard, as Pinkie says goodbye to a special friend.


    A Wish Come True by Seer


    “Pinkie,” Maud asked, “Have you ever thought about something, and then it was real?”

    And Pinkie just laughed, endeared by the naivety of the minds of fillies.


    Solace by Amit


    Pinkie Pie stands vigil over a dying Rainbow Dash.

    A series of laconic vignettes.

    Ever After Never Came by TheSlorg


    Life is full of challenges.

    Pinkie Pie knows this more than most ponies ever will. It is for this reason that she continues to try to help bring a smile to everyone she comes across. But when her newest friend Jesse, a troubled old man from another world, doesn't want her visits, doesn't want to smile, and just wants to be left alone, she's ashamed to realize that she's not sure it's even worth the effort anymore.

    Pinkie Pie loves her friends.

    She's very good at showing this, too.

    Even if it seems like there's nothing anypony can do—least of all her—she'll be there for you.









    Pink Eye by Daemon of Decay


    Derpy tries to find the courage to finally ask out the one mare she's always admired for Hearth’s Warming Eve.

    It goes as well as expected.


    Rainbow Dash's Best Plan Ever by Cloudy Skies


    On the eve of Nightmare Night, Rainbow Dash is finally poised to enact her dastardly, clever and awesome plan. The goal? To scare Pinkie Pie right into her embrace so she can admit that she fancies her.

    Saying things do not go according to plan is probably redundant.


    A Beautiful Night by MrNumbers


    The Elements of Harmony didn't work. Nightmare Moon won. Her beautiful night has been unending for over two years now, and her reign over Equestria is total.

    Twilight and Pinkie Pie never gave up, even after everyone else did.

    What kind of surprise could possibly make up for the loss of your best friends?

    Dreamflow by KitsuneRisu


    The difference is as stark as day and night - and so is it reflected in the tale.

    When Applejack is set upon by a series of unnatural nightmares, she turns to good friend and confidant Pinkie Pie to try to figure out exactly what's causing them. Day after day they struggle to learn the skills that will allow her to make sense of it all, as they discover what is needed to walk the realm of dreams.

    And as time goes by, the clearer the picture becomes.

    But still it remains - the mystery and the clues that lay scattered across her nighttime episodes where words do not exist, only to be analyzed during the day where conversation is all she has.

    Join Applejack and Pinkie as they work it out together and traverse a story where nothing is ever as it seems.


    Transient by Impossible Numbers


    Pinkie and Rarity reluctantly venture into the strange caves of the far reaches of Equestria. The map must have sent them there for a reason, after all. Hopefully, they'll live long enough to figure out what it is.









    Inscape by Kwakerjak


    It's been several months since Pinkie Pie made a stunning admission about her past that permanently changed her relationship with her friends, particularly Twilight Sparkle, but life seems to have settled back to normal (well, normal by Pinkie Pie's standards, at least). However, when an old nemesis returns and ensnares Twilight in her influence, it's up to Pinkie to make things right.


    Not So Far Away by Cold Bolt


    Pinkie Pie takes a trip above the clouds.

    A short adventure inspired in part by Austraeoh.
