Princess Celestia is due for an informal visit with Twilight and her friends, but Pinkie Pie seems to be acting even more strange than usual. What is she up to, and will Twilight find out before it's too late?
I was really striving for an "almost like watching a new episode!" feel with this fic, and I hope it shows.

Oh, I've read this one before.

It's a hoot. And it is just like watching a new episode.

Hm...where have I seen this before? Ah, I guess it doesn't matter. It was quite entertaining.

Poor Twilight... She really needs to do something about those nervous breakdowns of hers...

I saw this story on EqD and I frickin' loved it! That was so much fun!

Hiilarious. ...But you'd think Twilight probably knows the Princess's birthday. I imagine, at last in my head, she's been let in on the secret as her Most Faithful Student. I imagine, like Spike, the Princess has been getting books for a while....Though, given we now know Twilight's love of fiction, probably rather good books.

Crazy-Twilight strikes again!

Nice story. I should really catch up on older fics sometime...

This Deserves To Be An Episode. :trollestia:

Ha, this is pinkie pie on so many levels...
Awesome story bro!

Wow. Gummy is just the ultimate distraction. He's rapidly becoming my favourite character.

Also, this story is pure awesome. Well done.

Celestia is best monarch.

This needs to be a new episode. Someone send it to Hasbro, now!:pinkiehappy:

To quote another fic: Oh, god. Pinkie's eating her and then she's gonna eat me!.

Call HASBRO!!! Get them to put this in season 3 or 4 or whatever the hell the have left!!! :yay::rainbowlaugh:

That picture alone is worth the thumbs-up.

This should be an episode.

That... Was amazing. :pinkiehappy:

Ah, I remember this one. Amazing!

And then sugercube corner was on fire:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

^ "WHY WON'T IT COME OUT?!?":trollestia::pinkiecrazy:

Oh Pinkie, You so Random...

I just loved it! Maybe, just maybe one of the staff memebers will read it and suggest it for an episode! That would be so. Awesome. Of course, they might choose to take the fire scene out, or edit it to be a diffrent reaction, in case the deem it too mature, because we don't want little kindergarden arsonists running around, now do we? Lol
Happy emote time!

Just like a new episode.
Must have moar!

This needs to be an episode.

Fanfics like these make me wish we could submit to the writers of MLP:FiM and get great stories animated. :rainbowlaugh:

if i had to choose one fanfic to be turned into a actual episode, this would be my first choice.

strike that reverse it. did you get that from the first/old willy wonka movie?
also this was a good read

Great work. It really felt like a canon episode. And made my eyes water a little at the end. :fluttercry:

Yup. That was really really good. Like everyone said I could totally see this as an actual episode. Fav'd and watchin u.

nice (granted the pic led me to false hopes(im not to big of a celestia fan i dont ahte her persay but shes kinda just there so iwas hopeing this would be the ataul pic(not that i want her ti die:pinkiecrazy:)))

Love this. In particular, I enjoyed the Rarity/Rainbow comedy dynamic--that was unexpected and unique. Thanks for writing and for sharing!

This is an incredible story, and I love Pinkie in it. It manages to be both hilarious and touching.

Just incredible. :pinkiesmile:

i think i read this on deviantArt good read... faved and reread

Well done. 'Nuf said.

This is great! :pinkiehappy: So good, i'm not sure if it was an actual episode or not

It felt just like I was watching an epiode!
Probably also worth mentioning that I titter with delight when I see the cover art.

I like this! And I can see it happening on the show, too, so that's a bonus! :twilightsmile:

That ending...:rainbowderp:

Should've been an episode.

I know there was an episode where she snapped because of her anxiety. But Is love to one day see her trully fucking snap, as in it talking for her to be taken down to the ground and forced into submission to calm her down.

Princess Celestia burst into gales of laughter, clapping her front two hooves alternately against the floor. Twilight raised her head, joining her friends in staring. "P-Princess?"

"Bravo!" Celestia called out. "A most daring prank. It has been ages since anypony had the audacity to pull a fast one on me, and I must admit I missed it."
Oh, well that's disappointing. I was at least hoping for a freak out of SOME kind...

Princess Celestia was bright pink.

"It doesn't seem to wash out," the princess said through gritted teeth, her eyes thinned to slits and her horn glowing. A brush dripping with red soapy water hung in the air next to her.

"P-P-Princess! Please, let me try!" Twilight's horn shone as she cast a spell on her teacher. There was a purple and pink flash that blinded everypony for just an instant. Twelve eyes blinked rapidly to clear their vision.

Princess Celestia was pinker. Her eyes glowed with pure gold light. The brush vibrated, then exploded, splattering the walls and ceiling with red sugar water and soap. The birds on the windowsill chose that moment to fly away, nearly knocking each other out of the air in their hurry.
Wait, is Twilight dreaming?

And then Sugarcube Corner was on fire.
Oh. Well. Okay, then. So that just happened.


Sorry, Celestia isn't really the freak-out kind of pony in my mind's eye, what with being at least one thousand years old and a prankster herself. :trollestia:

And yup, I trust by now you've discovered that Twilight was indeed dreaming!

Pinkie's last line. Zing. xD

Definitely had an episode feel to it, though a bit cut and dried at times, probably due to the limitations of canon and sticking to what we know of the characters. Ah, written in 2012 well I certainly can't take points off since the show wasn't all that fleshed out that long ago. NEVERMIND! :twilightblush:

Regardless, I enjoyed it, I'm a large fan of the pink one so I was naturally going to like her parts, and RD was written better than I generally see her (too many authors stick to stereotypes and catch phrases for her I guess). The dream bit was a nice touch, having the fakeout made the actual events feel more grounded. Of course, I'm also a sucker for Celly being humble and kind so that also helps :pinkiehappy:
