Rainbow Dash is famous for being a great flyer. Rarity is famous for being a great dressmaker. Pinkie Pie has lots of friends, but she doesn't have fame. When she decides that she wants to be as famous as her friends for being a party planner, things don't quite work out for her.

I am sorry but I was just... bored. the whole way through. :applecry:  It was un-interesting. there was no climax of the story... Maybe that kind of story is for some people, but not me.

#4 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Great story, although at the end Applejack came off as kind of a jerk.

You're jinxing it. :pinkiehappy:

>>872524

Yeah, you're going to get that from me. Most of my stories, the key action is going to be a conversation rather than an event.

>>872742

I was actually worried about Pinkie coming off as a selfish or jealous jerk, so I wrote AJ in as a lightning rod. Sorry, Applejack. :ajsleepy:

I thought Pinkie came off fantastically, I mean everyone wants recognition for what they are good at and being good at throwing parties is one of those things that tends not to be that well recognized. I thought her desire for recognition was quite understandable.

Last line was just perfect !

Loved it :pinkiehappy:

#8 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Get over yourself, Applejack! Sorry I had to respond to her line. :ajbemused:

#9 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

I'm really glad you feel that way. It means I accomplished want I wanted to. I'm going to have to make my next Mane 6 story about Applejack to make it up to her.

#10 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

>>872928 I actually think that Applejack wasn't being a jerk she knows what it's like for Pinkie Pie, and if you think about Applejack works her tail off to keep Sweet Apple Acres in bussiness and she dosen't recieve a whole lot of praise for it, so of course like anyone else she wants to recieve recognition for her work, but of course she knows that there's a difference between wanting fame just because you think you deserve and having fame because you've earned it. :ajsmug:

#11 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Reeaaaaly boring, seriously? What was the point? I was just bored the whole way through,still deserves a like as it is well written.

Hopefully you don't feel bad, with you being a featured author and all.

I would suggest doing a bit of reading up on psychology if you do an applejack one about what she said. One mistake I've seen more than a few writers make is the whole "tough love" thing.  Its one of those concepts that sounds good but if it was that easy then no one would have any psychological problems.  In reality tough love like its usually done in tv and stories would probably do more damage or drive someone to something bad.

#13 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Wow.  That ending made me tear up.  Great job!

#14 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Wow, I liked this story!  This is a take on Pinkie you don't usually see, but it fits her.  The ending is perfect.  :pinkiehappy:

#15 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Oh, poor Pinkie Pie! I can really feel for her here. It can't be fun living in the shadow of ambitious, attention-grabbing friends like Rarity and Rainbow Dash (nothing against them for it, of course!), when you're as gregarious as Pinkie Pie. Of course, the irony is that she can't exactly thrive on the attention of strangers, because every time she meets a stranger, she tries to turn them into a friend! One could say that Pinkie is being a touch selfish here, but honestly, everypony has the right to be a bit selfish from time to time. Not considering one's own needs has led to at least :ajsleepy: three :fluttershysad: breakdowns :raritydespair:. I think everypony's advice was good, too, including Applejack's. And I really like the fact that there wasn't a great big simple solution to Pinkie's problems in the end, just an acknowledgement that the problem existed and would need time. And then Princess Celestia's gesture was lovely.

#16 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Daaaaw....

Yeah, it was pretty boring, but that's what the slice of life tag is for.  If it were exciting and action-packed, it would be tagged adventure.  This was more the slow, emotional, and sensitive type of story.

#17 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

Awesome story. I liked how you were careful to describe Pinkie's desire for those 15 minutes of fame without making her sound selfish for it. You pulled that off really well.

#18 · 107w, 2d ago · · ·

I doubted this story would be interesting from the description.

The only reason this is on my Read Later list is because of the sad Pinkie cover picture...curse sad adorableness!

#19 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

This could be featured, judging by it's popularity....

#20 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Definitely a good story, but not quite my cup of tea. A bit too light on the action for my palate.

Still, the quality of your writing is good, your characterisations are well done and the story has a nice episodic feel.

#21 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Beautiful ending! :pinkiehappy:

#22 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

The end of the story quite literally made me do this.

Good show.

#23 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Sent chills down my spine. I'm from canterlot.net's cantercast, head of FiM fics would you mind me presenting this story in todays episode?

#24 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

:pinkiegasp:

Best... :pinkiesmile:

Story.. :twilightsmile:

EVAAAR! :pinkiehappy:

#25 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

The story was fun throughout but nothing too extraordinary UNTIL the ending.  That ending was just perfect for this type of one shot and looking back into the story you did a great job setting it up.  I thought it was great that you had Pinkies friends be concerned (in their own way) but unable to fix it themselves.  That sort of playful wit is also very much in character for Celestria.

Certainly not! Please post the link here when it's up.

>>873256>>874298

Thanks for your feedback! I don't take it personal if you didn't like it, and maybe someday I'll learn to write the necessary action scenes for something like this. You're helping me to get better.

To everyone who liked it, thank you too!

#28 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

I really liked this story. I identify with Pinkie a bit, I also have dreams of fame both here in FiMFiction and in real life. :twilightsheepish:

The ending made me smile. I think it's very good. :twilightsmile:

#29 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

Awwwwwww that was a good ending

#30 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

>>876387

I liked your story too.

#31 · 107w, 1d ago · · ·

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWT6hmgD0Y8 you can watch it live now or watch the full show skipping around later.

#32 · 106w, 5d ago · · ·

:D My favorite thing about your writing (Besides the fact it is SO amazing) Is that all the characters are always SO in character!!!!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy: I love your writing and I can TELL you worked super hard on this :D

#33 · 106w, 5d ago · · ·

I really enjoyed this! :pinkiehappy: I found that it had a good pace, and I love that it was really just a slice of life fic.  I don't think that all stories need to be exciting and fast-paced , or deep and thought provoking to be amazing.  I guess I really enjoyed this story mostly due to the fact that I really share a connection with Pinkie here :pinkiesad2: Anyways, I loved it, and the ending was just so :heart:

#34 · 106w, 4d ago · · ·

A bit on the short side, but not too much to give too little weight to the message, which I daresay a lot of people in this fandom would do well to hear.

Nice work.

#35 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

>>872889

I second this motion

#36 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

>>904133 Yeah, this guy gets the idea!

#37 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

That was a very involving story, and the last line made me d'awwww so much :twilightsmile: Terrific kudos for this story and I hope to see more from you!

#38 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

I loved the last line, "Pinkie Pie, may I please have your autograph?” It just made my day and brought tears of joy to my eyes. :pinkiehappy:

#39 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

not bad

#40 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

All together now:

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw...

#42 · 106w, 3d ago · · ·

>>908973

Aw, thanks. I love you too.:heart:

#43 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Best ending ever. I can't get this stupid smile off my face! :twilightsmile:

#44 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

great ending but i really dislike gthe cover picture because seeing pinkie pie with a sad face makes me sad:fluttershysad:

#45 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

This story, for me, was... Touching. I found myself empathizing with Pinkie, as I'm in a very similar boat. I might have to take her lesson to heart.

Now, if only I could get Celestia's autograph...

#46 · 106w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

THAT LAST LINE WAS....:pinkiegasp::pinkiehappy::pinkiesad2::heart:

#47 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Very good ending, just what I always imagine Celestia doing.

#48 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

I thought you got Pinkie really well in this. Unfortunately, planners tend to be background people and they don't get the spotlight like others can. That could be hard for her to learn to accept.

The last line was perfect. Great story. :twilightsmile:

#49 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

how sweet :pinkiehappy:

#50 · 106w, 2d ago · · ·

Wonderful, touching story. I agree with previous statements that there was little action in this, but I don't think every story needs a lot of action. My own always fall short in that aspect, anyway, so I can't really give feedback on that.

However, I do find that all your characters are very much, well, in character. Even Applejack, in spite of complaints that she wasn't terribly nice. I especially love Celestia's appearance at the end, though, as that's the kind of action I imagine from her.

Congratulations on making it to EQD, too. :yay:
