Pinkie Pie comes to Rainbow Dash with shocking news; the world is going to end, and they have a million things to do before it does. Although Rainbow Dash agrees to play along, she obviously doesn't take her seriously... but as the day goes by, the true meaning of Pinkie's warning becomes clear.

I rarely use emoticons, so I hope that shows just how much I mean this: :heart:

Delightful story about the joys of never growing up. Sure, you have to get more responsible as life goes by, but the joy and wonder of being a kid never has to stop.

Around the world in 10 seconds flat. THAT, my good sirs, is 20% cooler.   :rainbowkiss:

“These won’t just be boring normal cupcakes!” Pinkie announced to nopony. “This is the time for epic cupcakes! Big, ginormous, fantastical cupcakes! The biggest and bestest ever! We need flour! And sugar! More sugar! MORE SUGAR!”

I spy with my little eye, an Epic Meal Time quote.

i spy with my little eye an epic meal time, portal 2, and MLP FiM development references :pinkiehappy: lol i liked that story, and the moral at the end there, growing up without actually growing up, actually gave me a feel :pinkiesad2: none the less a well made story, i am pleased :twilightsmile:

I've been looking for a good story to read and this story is pretty good. :) Keep up the work :yay:

#9 · 162w, 6d ago · · ·

Pupitear must minupiulate the words like strings inorder to make movements.

Trans latium ranbowdash must fly so fast that she makes a worm hole to another dmention

Also nice work on the story its really good

#10 · 162w, 5d ago · · ·

Man, I msut say that was some story. :pinkiehappy:

That is just like Pinkie to act this way, I mean even I was almost to tears on the revelation. Rainbow Dash is truly lucky to have someone like Pinkie Pie by her side, to lighten up her own life.

Truly lucky indeed.

Thank you for such a great story. :rainbowkiss:

HEY! GUESS WHO'S ON EQUESTRIA DAILY? THAT'S RIGHT, ME! :pinkiehappy:

Everyone should totally feel obligated to go and leave as many comments as they want on the blog post for it. I am not ashamed to pimp my own writing. http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/11/story-million-things-to-do.html#comments

This has completely inspired me to try submitting one of my other stories.

#12 · 161w, 4d ago · · ·

Thank you, thank you for writing such a wonderfully made story. This story actually made me realise just how we tend to forget all the fun in our lives once we grow up. All the fun, all the laughs, disappeared. It's such a wonderful story, I cried tears of joy while reading this actually.

Thank you, thank yo.:pinkiesad2:

Congrats man, you absolutely deserve it. It's been too long since I read something that actually made my eyes water. Fantastic work. :heart:

#18 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

I love this story. It's perfect Rainbow Pie, even though it's friend-shipping and not romance. The way Pinkie manifests her panic, the way Rainbow almost blows her off, the things Pinkie decides they should do--all lovely. And the dialogue is crackling.

But what really takes the story over the top is the ending. It would have been a lovely, a good, story even without the emotional tone twist at the end ... but with the twist, the story went from a pure comedy to something deep and emotional. And the very last sentence was just utter, sweet perfection.

#19 · 157w, 1d ago · · ·

It's a very well written story, and I don't want to come off as just negative, but you need to edit. It didn't ruin it for me by any stretch of the imagination, but I did notice quite a few mistakes. Just remember to check before submitting is all. Other then that, I really, really enjoyed this.

#20 · 157w, 7h ago · · ·

I LOVED IT!!!!

#21 · 155w, 1d ago · · ·

THE CUTENESS

THE D'AWWWNESS

IT'S KILLING ME WITH DIABETES

:rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss:

5 stars! Definitely deserves its spot on EQD! Congrats!

...And finally, after having flown across the planet, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie realized, they have finally done everything possible, ever. And then the next day they both died of boredom, and, no longer having the limitless supply of energy known as Pinkie Pie, the Universe crumbled into non-existance. The End. (For-EEEEVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! :pinkiecrazy::pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy:)

#23 · 151w, 10h ago · · ·

5 stars? How about 5 hearts and 5 stars! :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

Spaaaaaaaaace! :pinkiehappy:

This was a very well-written story, quite an interesting set-up as well. I would have loved for it to be a little longer, but what we got was really good!

Two thumbs up and a tip of my hat to you.

#25 · 150w, 7h ago · · ·

Why Not?

Life Philosophy.

The cutest story ever!!!!:rainbowkiss::pinkiehappy:

#26 · 149w, 5d ago · · ·

This story was really sweet:pinkiehappy:

#27 · 147w, 2d ago · · ·

This. This right here. This is how you write Pinkie to perfection.

#28 · 146w, 6d ago · · ·

Awesome... Wow.... :pinkiesad2: A fantastic story with an incredible twist.  It has a "moral of the story" that you can't see till the very end of the story but jumps out at you and becomes very clear.  The moral doesn't seem forced either, it just... works.  This story really made me think.  Wow, you have talent.

#29 · 145w, 2d ago · · ·

And here I thought you were actually going to make the world end even though Pinkie said it wasn't. That was the ending I was hoping for...but we can't alwas get what we want.

#30 · 145w, 2d ago · · ·

That.... that.... that was adorable. :heart:

So this adorable story has earned this:

Thanks for sharing this story with us.:pinkiehappy:

#31 · 143w, 6d ago · · ·

take off the comedy tag plz

well, sure, i grinned here and there, but the overall tone of the story isn't lighthearted enough

the story was fine, i disliked for the wrong tag

#32 · 143w, 6d ago · · ·

>>333655 Wow, what an unbelievably petty reason to dislike a story.

#33 · 143w, 6d ago · · ·

>>334159

Yea, you'd think, but watcha gonna do.

#34 · 143w, 5d ago · · ·

Is it wrong that after your portal reference, Rainbow continued to sound like Wheatly for the rest of the fic?

#35 · 143w, 23h ago · · ·

Man I love these short lighthearted slice-of-life fics. Thanks for the happy-injection. :twilightsmile:

#36 · 142w, 6d ago · · ·

if only we can live up to this ideal, then reality comes in

#37 · 142w, 1d ago · · ·

am i the only one that thought when pinkie said these aren't gonna be normal cupcakes that this was gonna go down that road again?

#38 · 141w, 1d ago · · ·

Someone thumbed this down.

They.

MUST.

DIE!!!:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

As a side note, good story! It filled me with happy.:pinkiesmile:

#39 · 139w, 3d ago · · ·

This was an adorable story and I enjoyed it a lot.

That said, you can't seem to decide if it is just friendshipping or full shipping. I would opt for the former, but you have things like Dash getting a wingboner while holding Pinkie ("Rainbow’s face was growing warmer and warmer, and she could feel her the feathers of her wings grow stiffer and spread, even as they beat.") so it distracts the reader a little bit.

Nonetheless this is really good and you get thumbs up.

*Sniff*:pinkiesad2:

#41 · 138w, 3d ago · · ·

I am so late to see this. But this is amazingly cute and heart warming. Amazing work.

#42 · 138w, 3d ago · · ·

Bucking Amazing.

#43 · 138w, 12h ago · · ·

Another one of those stories I remember reading several months ago, when I first got into this whole shipping thing.. It's really quite adorable.

#44 · 138w, 9h ago · · ·

This story shall be my new bible. I shall read it everyday, and uphold its message. Excellent story, excellent characterization. Why couldn't everyone be Pinkie Pie? I think you should add the "sad" tag to it though. When Pinkie says it's the end of the world, she means it as literally as she possibly can. It's so sad, watching her face a world devoid of laughter, seeking the last days of innocence before the horrific journey into the adult world. Seriously, I could never imagine Pinkie Pie with such a deep message for us all.

#45 · 137w, 1d ago · · ·

How do you do it? Every story you write is an amazing piece of art! I've decided that I'm going to read every single one of your fics! Somehow you can make an amazing story out of anything, from a RainbowPie (PinkieDash?) fic, to Pinkie simply watching paint dry. You are awesome! Never stop writing fics. I got another three fics to read, then I'll start on The Games We Play, I can't wait to start that one, I'm sure it's going to be amazing!

#46 · 136w, 3d ago · · ·

Her mind instantly leapt to the mental image of her and Pinkie floating through space.

"I'm in space! So much space, gotta see it all! Spaaaaaaace!"

"I know you are, Pinks. Yep. We're both in space."

"Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace! Yee-haw! Ooh, there's a star! Another star! And another one!"

I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.

#47 · 136w, 4h ago · · ·

man why did i only cry at my little dashie!!! thats it time to pullout the failsafe

i dident want to do this but dangit you leve me no choice!!!!:flutterrage:

*reads tears of a godess and plays amazing grace*

"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound. twas lost but now, i see!

#48 · 135w, 5d ago · · ·

I love your story. It's so sweet and the characters are really true to the show (sorry, I can't think of a better word) this could almost be an episode in itself. I wish it was. :pinkiesmile:

I give you 5 dashies out of 5

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

#49 · 135w, 5d ago · · ·

This fict made me wonder where the hell has my childhood gone...

Aw, crap. Here goes one of my bad moods.

Nevertheless, a beautiful fic. Rated, favourited, downloaded for later re-read.

#50 · 135w, 5d ago · · ·

Oh, the joys of being a child at heart. It's the most joyous feeling one can experience. Ponies help me experience this feeling. This is a great story. 5 yay's out of 5. :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay:
