A week after the Gala, the six friends come to grips that the things they expected to happen never did.  Two particular ponies are faced with the idea that everything they were familiar with, everything they've become confident in has been turned upside down. Is it possible to recover your ideals when you've been proven unreliable at your talents?

Note: Formatting for the first five chapters has been corrected.  Geez, why didn't anyone /tell/ me it was so bad!?  It was missing everything!  Story should look MUCH better now.

I am sure that this is all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence.

Gah! Cliffhanger! My ancient foe! We meet again. :raritydespair:

Well, I found this to be an enjoyable read. Little episodic, not too grim and not too slapstick. It feels very slice-of-lifey. I can almost see it as "season 1, episode 27."

Good fun!  And bless you for adding visual breaks between the scenes.  I was getting a little whiplash from the transitions earlier on.

Oh good heavens!  The formatting of those first five chapters got /all/ sorts of screwed up!  Why hasn't anyone brought this to my attention before now!?  Should look better now.  Man, no italicizations, bolds... NOTHING! Thanks for finally mentioning it, and thanks for the comment!

Thanks!  That's exactly what I was going for when i first started writing it!  I just got stuck on a roadblock... but I'm actually VERY surprised how much of this fic actually melds with Season 2.

It won't be for long, I promise!

Heh... I wondered how many people would catch that reference when I put it in there. There's been more than I thought, but I couldn't resist.  It just seems like Pinkie's style. :pinkiehappy:

A very nice chapter, but something really threw me off. Right after Rarity leaves Fluttershy's cottage the story jumps back to the first chapter with Pinkie asking about a book on parties to the end where Twilight announces her treasure chest.

Pinkie screaming that she needed paper made me laugh so hard! :rainbowlaugh:

Cliffhangers, how they mock me! I kid. Awesome story. I can't wait for the next part. :yay:

Yikes!  Something must've happened while I was cleaning up the formatting last night of the first five chapters.  Half of chapter 1 got caught into chapter 2! Should be fixed now, thanks for letting me know!  I was half asleep while I was doing that...

Glad you enjoyed the story! Thanks for commenting!

Big Mac has the right idea, just stay out of it, thats the smart decision. :eeyup:

How dose this story only have 17 up votes? It definitely deserves more praise than its getting, looking forward to the next chapter.:rainbowdetermined2:
