It was an innocent day on the rock farm of the Pie family; Pinkie was outside, doing her regular job. Pinkie kicked another rock with her head, pushing it into her small pile of rocks. Suddenly, her father rang the bell to let the family back inside. Pinkie sighed and looked up, hoping that something would help her do something better with her life; something to save her; something that would finally let her see the light of life inside her eyes. But, her mind had different plans.
“Alright, time to pack up,” the leader of the mechanism crew inside of the brain of Pinkie Pie.
“Why are we even on a ‘rock farm’ anyway?” a mechanical worker asked. “What can you harvest from rocks? And how are they created anyway?”
“We’ve got a defective one!” a (un)sanitary crew manager exclaimed. He walked up to the worker.
“No, wait!” the worker yelled. “I have a wife and kids!” He was then thrown into the fire. Suddenly, a new worker fell from a tube and took his place.
Pinkie sighed sadly. Suddenly, a huge explosion was heard from a distance.
"Ah!!" the hearing crew screamed.
"What's going on?" the leader asked them.
"There was a huge explosion from the distance!" the leader of the hearing crew answered.
The main leader continued, "Do you see anything, sight team?"
"Nothing yet, sir," the leader of the sight team said. He then looked closely at his screen. "Wait, I think I see something in the distance... Something... Multi-colored."
Pinkie Pie stared at the huge explosion of rainbow as it flew through the sky, erasing all of the dark clouds over head. The wind flew across the face of Pinkie; when it finished, her mane exploded with fluffiness. She looked up into the sky, seeing a rainbow for the first time ever. She looked up in awe and, for the first time ever, smiled. Smiled, at the first time she saw happiness in life.
"Wait a second..." the pony who worked on facial expressions said. "She's smiling... She's... Smiling!"
"Wait, we don't have any files for that!" the main leader said.
"She just bucking created one, sir!"
"That's not supposed to happen!"
"Sir, there's an explosion of colors on the screen!" the sight team exclaimed. "There's too many colors! Our computers can't handle it!" Suddenly, multiple computers burst out in flame. "Ah!" they screamed.
"Calm down, everypony," the leader said. "We can fix this!"
Suddenly, the facial expressions file cabinet got exploded into flames. "How does that even work?!" the facial expressions manager exclaimed, trying to cool the flames. He then got lit on fire and fell permanently.
"Pony down!!" the leader yelled. He then tried pressing the button to get a new one, but the machine for that also got lit on fire. "We're losing everything here, gentlecolts!"
The 'anti-fun' cabinet then got lit into flames. "No!" the leader of the thought brigade yelled. "We can't lose that! Who knows what monstrosity will be created when we lose this?" He ran to the flames to try to cool it, but it was in ashes before he got to it. "No..."
"Sir!" the pony who worked in the thought process coordination yelled. "We've lost control of all measures of stopping thoughts! She is having strange thoughts that we cannot control!" I can just keep smiling for forever! Pinkie thought, the thought echoing throughout the entire brain. "And we've lost our thought sound modulator!"
"This can't be happening!" the main leader said. He looked in the sound department; everything was fine, though everypony who worked there left to help others, though they kept on being lit on fire and ran through the mind. The same thing was happening for the sight, smell, and touch departments. The leader looked through the mind, seeing the entire mind collapse within itself. "We've lost. All sanity, lost. Everything we tried to work for, gone." A tear went down his eye as he got crushed by a ceiling tile.
"The leader's down!" somepony yelled. They all screamed even harder than before; they all then damaged both themselves and the mind by running around, breaking machines, lighting more on fire. Many perished in multiple seconds, and a huge explosion happened. Everything was in a chaotic state, and nopony knew what the heck was even going on.
Soon, everything in the mind was lost. Everypony who used to work in the mind was dead. And, as expected, the sanity department was gone, so insanity ran wild through the pony. Also, the "acquire cutie mark" button was accidentally hit, giving her a cutie mark of 3 balloons. The place was barren. Well, almost barren...
A toilet flushed. "Ugh, that's the last time I'm using a toilet for a long time..." A random mind-worker pony walked out of the bathroom. "Um..." He looked around, seeing nopony he knew was there. "Hello? Where did you guys go?" He looked around for several minutes to have no success. "I-I think I'm the last one left... I'm the last one left! Finally, those jerks can no longer tell me what to do, and tell me what's wrong and right! Finally!" He ran to a thought cabinet and set 'partying' as main thought instead of 'rock farming'. He then pretty much changed everything. Then, he accidentally pulled the 'insane' switch. "Oh no..." He tried switching it again, but he broke the lever. "No, no, this can't be happening!" He fell to his knees and waved his hooves in the air. "This can't be happening!!"
He cried, looking at the piles of ruined machinery and burnt bodies littering the mind. "Maybe..." he sniffed. "Maybe, we need more order than we expect to operate in life. Maybe, we don't need happiness... No, there needs to be happiness. We just need to not have it all be at once, at an unexpected time... Yeah... Right?" A tear fell down his face.
Pinkie Pie smiled while she danced with her family. This was the best day ever! she thought. Though, I wonder: What's going on in my mind?
