Slice of Life
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.
An exploration of grief and identity, among other things. Partially inspired by Quadrophenia by The Who. The [Pinkie Pie] and [Other] tags together represent Pinkie's clone.
Editing by; Nonagon, Kuroi Tsubasa Tenshi, CDRW, plumander, Sereg, and JapaneseTeeth, all of whom are amazing. Go shower them with admiration!

Now I'm to begin
The life that I'm assigned
A life that's been used before
A thousand times
