Pinkamena Diane Pie

by Fate is Manic

Inside of the Happiness

"Has she changed any?"

"I am afraid not."

"Is she showing any signs of violent behavior?"

"No she is still in a deeply depressed state. She still talks of having these friends and living in a city of 'Ponyville'. These friends she has are all the same ones she described on your last visit. Two 'Unicorns', Twilight Sparkle and Rarity, Two 'Pegasi', Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, and an 'Earth Pony' named Applejack. She still insists that she is a pony named Pinkie Pie. We believe this is related to her parents death. This is just her way of coping."

"Will she every come out of it?"

"No, I am afraid that she has slipped deep into this reality and believes in it wholeheartedly. If she were to leave it now the shock would kill her."

As the pair approached the large window a single tear escaped from the woman. The window becomes ever closer and with each step she takes more tears come until she stares through the window at the sight inside. A girl of about twenty lies on a hospital bed staring at the ceiling, her mouth moving as if she is talking to the empty room.

"Can I go and see her?"

"Yes, you can talk with her until it is time to feed her."

The woman walked into the room gently shutting the door behind her. She approached the girl and barely held back the tears as she remembered the fun loving party planner that her niece had once been. The little hyper girl that would ask to help her 'Auntie Cake' with planning a wedding.

"Hey Auntie Cake! How are you doing?"

The woman smiled softly at her niece's nickname for her aunt. "Hello my Little Silly how are you?"

"You remembered my nickname Auntie Cake! It is so good to see you. Have you talked to Twilight lately? I hear she wants a dozen of your best muffins for Derpy's birthday party. I planned it and trust me it is going to be the Biggest Bestest Birthday Bash! Don't tell anypony but I finally helped Dashie create those multi-couloured clouds that we are going to use for the HAPPY BIRTHDAY DERPY HOOVES banner!"

"I'm sure it will be a great party. I expect nothing less from my Little Silly Willy Niece Diane Pine."

"Auntie, you know I like you to call me Pinkie if you are using my real name. Well I have to go, I still need to hang up the streamers!"

Diane's eyes returned to their clouded state and moved their empty gaze over to the ceiling. The woman began to cry softly next to her niece's bed. She leaned down and placed a kiss on the girl's head before taking an all too familiar seat next to the hospital bed. Then she began the lullaby that she had sang to the girl for every night since the fire.

When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toy maker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball

And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing our silly song

The woman began to cry rather loudly at the finish of the song. The doctor tapped on the glass signalling that the visit was over. As she left she could hear the girl singing the song she had ended early. The girl softly sang as the woman left and tears began to flow from the girl's eyes.

As we sing our silly song

When I was a little Silly, a raging blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage. Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and filled them all with orphan fools now
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured, but I still, know the words to this song

A little girl of no more than seven runs to a woman on a cell phone with a clip board frantically running about fixing little things. The little girl giggles at her auntie's worry.

"Don't worry Auntie Cake everything is perfect. But, I would include more streamers OOOHHHH and maybe some SPARKLES!"

The woman ended her call and smiled. She walked over to the little one kneeling to be eye level with her.

"You really think its perfect?"

"Of course, no-one makes parties like my Auntie Cake!"

The little girl gave a wide grin showing off her missing front teeth. The woman simply laughed and hugged the little one.

"Your right my Little Silly, it is perfect. Now how about we go out for ice cream?"

"ICE CREAM!" The little girl's face was invaded by a smile so wide stretched from ear to ear.

As the two exited the building the woman's phone rang.

"Ma'm I am sorry to have to tell you this but there has been a fire....."

The woman dropped her phone as tears began to fall from her cheeks and onto the asphalt. She looked to the little one beside her.

"Whats wrong Auntie?"

The woman keeled down to be at eye level with the little girl before hugging her tightly.


The woman released the girl and looked her in the eyes.

"Diane, we need to talk........your Mommy and Daddy have been caught in a really bad accident."

"What happened?"

"Well, Mommy and Daddy's bakery had a little fire."

"Mommy and Daddy are ok right?"

The tears began to fall freely form the woman's face once again. The little girl understood what her Auntie was trying to say. She had talked to a friend who's mommy died last year. The little one then began to cry as much as her Auntie. The two stayed in that parking lot like that, just holding each other and letting their tears fall.
