I'm an irritating fangirl who also writes. A lot of my stuff is sad. I am sometimes overly sex-positive, so if you are sex-negative, I might have called you an elitist taint jockey. Sorry about that.

Ooooooh, I know how I should start the story! I do I do! It should start with 'once upon a time'! Right?

No?

Awwww, I guess you're right, Cola. Everyone likes it the way it is now!

(Oh, and it's a story about when I was a little filly and my friends were all colored rocks! She said it needs that or else nobody'll know what it's about when they click it -- whatever that means! Cola also wants me to tell you it placed second in the TWG Contest and got on Equestria Daily!

Oh, oh, oh, oh! It even won this! I didn't even know Twilight kept a library of stories about all of us!

Oh my...

This is wonderful. Certainly deserving of its placement, if not more. Like n' favorite; I hope to see it in the feature box soon.

And of course we're friends, Pinkie. A friend is a friend, no matter how visible.

When we moved rocks, we were trying to get mineral deposits to develop in them. The minerals we needed to make things like quartz into things like amethyst or citrine came from erosion and rain. Some years we had a good mineralization the year before, which meant all the rocks we’d buried for seeding would have a lot of gems, and we could sell them to unicorns and magic shops.

The Rock Farm, ladies and gentlemen, now utterly and irrefutably legitimatized.

This story is such a fragile, beautiful, disturbing, happy thing.

Anyway -- I know it's not really a story I can tell anyone in Ponyville. I don't even want to guess what would happen! Can a wish fall apart? I wouldn’t want Ponyville to go away, and I wouldn’t want to freak out any of my friends.

:raritycry::pinkiegasp::unsuresweetie:

They’re all pretty happy, and I know I am!

:twilightsmile::yay::twilightsmile:

It's like poetry.

At last!

Deserves first place.

Holy shit.

That was amazing. Like, I love what-if scenarios, and this one just works. Pinkie Pie was a joy to read, and the writing was excellent.

Damn. That was a very, very good take on the prompt. Colour me impressed.

I loved the ending. I'm not sure why I was surprised.

Well now... that was DEFINITELY Pinkie Pie... :pinkiecrazy:

This is some Twilight Zone shit right here. Or would it be Pinkie Zone?

woah this is really different from what you usually write.

My, my.:duck:
It seems an omniscient being has gained quasi-omnipotence.
An illusionary existence, is it? Ufufufufu~.:raritywink:

Excellent work, dear Author!:pinkiehappy:

It's disturbing, heartwarming and happy at the same time.
I like that combination.

3333155

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks! :pinkiehappy:

3333164

Maybe if I'm lucky the writers are doing the same thing for the rock farm in S4. :twilightsmile:

3333359

Thanks! I'm glad you found it a good read. :twilightsmile:

3334166

Just think about why Cranky could eventually accept Pinkie as a friend, and the disturbing should go up quite a bit. They're all her friends, as if it's a law of the universe now . . . :pinkiegasp:

3334004

Her voice seemed to come pretty naturally for the narrative once I knew where it was going. Sometimes I've had trouble with Pinkie, but I'm glad to know I hit the mark this time for you! :pinkiehappy:

3341345

It would certainly explain why there are such regular threats to all of Equestria, at least. :twilightsmile:

I like this story. :eeyup:

3337406

I'm always trying to do new stuff. :pinkiehappy: Hopefully it came off okay!

This story makes me happy. Happy I SAY!

3367449
no, it came out
REALLY WELL

3367449 Why is it labelled Dark?

I have an idea of why it is labelled Dark, but I want to be sure.

:pinkiesmile:

3384829

It has some disturbing implications. Nothing in terms of the tone or direct content is dark, though. :twilightsmile:

3384937 Is the disturbing implication that Pinkie basically just created about 30+ ponies because of a wish?

Sorry! I can be really dense sometimes:pinkiesad2:, but I loved the story! :pinkiehappy:

3387533

More like she's controlling their lives, indirectly. And, because she said "adventures" and "save Equestria", she's the one causing villains to target Equestria. :pinkiehappy:

SO! You think this is worthy of the Almighty Twilight's Library, huh?

Think it's up to snuff for OUR standards?

Think it can be placed into the group that even EqD pre readers and authors tremble before?

Guess what?

You're goddamn right it's worthy. Wear the ribbon with pride!

You're quite welcome!

I think I out did myself on that comment, too!

Of course not! That would be absurd. We fit the profile of Pinkie's invisible imaginary friend enough that the rock opened a portal to our reality through which we watch her. :pinkiecrazy:

None of them know you're watching, though, and you've always been there, so I can tell you anything, even though you probably already know it. You were my first imaginary friend ever, the invisible one from before the rocks! You never showed up, but I guess maybe it’d be hard to see someone invisible? I still talk to you, though, so you probably remember that I’m your friend if you became real, I guess.

How did I miss this the first time I read this? :applejackconfused:

I'm scared.

It could have been set off a little better in the text, actually. Some of my problem with HPWM relates to it being overwordy in a few places, particularly the end. :twilightsheepish:

I like to think Pinkie had it backwards. She thinks that her wish retroactively created Ponyville, but I think that Pinkie's just a bit psychic and was seeing things that were already true or were going to be true. Neither direction changes how your story goes, but my approach assumes a somewhat unreliable narrator.

4452980 You are all my delusions.

Which is weird since I'm aware you're all delusions.

BUT IT MATTERS NOT FOR I AM TEH GOD AND CREATED DA un-iVerse! :pinkiecrazy:

4455526

See, I was shooting for 'maximum disturbing implications'. The way I figure it, if the wishing stone was real, then that's why Rainbow got her Rainboom. Pinkie set everything in motion, unwittingly, as a filly. And a filly who gets all the things she imagines are real never quite grows up, never fears any danger (Pinkie bounces away from some literally mortal dangers on the show now and then), and knows everything will turn out okay in the end. Just like Pinkie seems to. She never had to grow up until it was 'beneficial' to her and her adventures. Plus, this would completely justify Party Of One, because really, if you thought you were magically destined to not be alone and then somehow decided that all the friends you had wished into being your friends were going away, you might actually have a minor psychotic break.

I'm glad you liked the story! :twilightsmile: (And I know Pinkie is glad too! :pinkiehappy::pinkiecrazy:)

Well, that was a thing. :derpyderp2:

4485139

Hopefully it was at least interesting. :twilightsmile: Thank you for the comment!

...Heavy stuff.:derpyderp2:
You got Pinkie's voice perfectly, anyway.

4511927

Thanks! I've struggled with it before, so I'm glad it worked in this case. :pinkiehappy:

You are one of the best Pinkie Pie writers I've ever seen. You really have her down to pat. Awesome story too!

The wishing rock is a really cool concept! I wonder what other wishes were granted and how that molded reality for everyone else after.

I want everything to be brighter and I want my friends to be ponies instead of rocks and I want us all to be happy and be friends with each other and we’ll go on big adventures and maybe even save Equestria and I want to see them and be able to hug them and I want to laugh and laugh and laugh forever and always make other ponies laugh and I want to be happy, I want them to be happy, that’s what would make me happy, if Rockville were real and filled with ponies!

As far as wishes go, that's pretty good! It closes a few loopholes and gives a great feeling for what Pinkie wants her world to be like,

I wish the things I imagine would become real!

Dammit Pinkie, you broke it. All of reality. :facehoof: Or at least the last wished-for reality. This story's a bit of a brain bender. Super fun, though!

This story made me want to sit down with Pinkie, and have a long talk with her. Well done, and welcome to Tag-A-Long's Book Club

This gave me so many shivers. That's a good thing.:twilightsmile:

This story...is absolutely amazing.
The thought behind it, the unnerving and interesting concept, and the fact that at the end it's practically saying Pinkie Pie created the Fourth Wall, is all incredible.

One of the best stories I've seen, with amazingly perfect characterization of Pinkie.
An amazing read! ^_^
