I must admit I'm not entirely sure what to make of this story. The idea had been kicking around in my head for a while so I thought try to get it down. It was really written for that last scene. Somehow the idea of Pinkie offering Death a cupcake just seemed so like her. Well, I enjoyed writing it and hopefully at least some of you enjoyed reading it.

nice, one could say you actually captured the essence of Pinkie Pie. :pinkiesad2:


That was pretty good. I gotta say Mage7, Pinkie Pie and death. Not many people would try that
(even after cupcakes *shudders*) and then adding a sad spin to it? Nice job making it seem right.
As for the cupcake at the end and the rest of it... Dude, you know your stuff. That's all I can say.

wow...that was pretty powerful.
time to keep...going around...the internet....:pinkiesad2: *sniffles*

Bravo. (all I can say):pinkiesad2:

Nice! It is Pinkie all the way through.


Aww, this was beautiful. Same in death as she was in life, and I love how she can be so relaxed about it. If only we could learn not to fear death, live our lives more comfortably... knowing that death will come one day, and until then, every day should be lived to its' best.

After all, life's just one big party.

My god thats awesome

wait, that came out wrong. I meant the story, that was damned touching

Very well done, I hope to see more in the future!:pinkiesad2:

I-I-I *starts crying* you wrote like you have a brain. Like Pinkie has a brain. If somepony else attempted this, it'd be nothing. A grain of sand to this hourglass of beauty. It impresses me, how you made Pinkie sound smart, instead of like a partying fool. No one does that. :pinkiesad2:

a tear has been shed, good work my good man(woman?) good work.

Yep that's pinkie, she will party till she drops

Pinkie dying?



I read on the pony wiki that Pinkie Pie's Smile song is about how many years she has yet to party.

I was fine until that last line.

That last freaking line just pushed me over the edge. I'm crying so hard it's hard to type right now. I'm not even going to use emoticons because that would detract from the seriousness of what I'm saying. You, sir, have written a masterpiece. If the site ranked fiction by quality and not views, this would be right up there next to My Little Dashie. The buildup was perfect, the climax was great, and then there's that last fucking line that's making me bawl like a baby.

Five starred and favorited.

Thank you for writing this.

This is great! :pinkiehappy:

Fantastic buildup, the lingering sadness mixed with Pinkie's happy-go-lucky behaviour really got me. I couldn't help but smile. Being nice to death itself, befriending it... That is something only Pinkie Pie can do. Beautiful!


(clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap) FANTASTIC!:pinkiehappy:

I'm so sad,
should have warned me to not play sad music while randomly reading stuff
was listening to this
manly tears were almost shed

(Salutes) In memory of Pinkie Pie... Also... Author... Please hear and tell me what you think..,

Because sir...


Made me cry... :fluttershysad::fluttercry::fluttershbad:


That truly was beautiful:pinkiesad2: you captured her character in a near-perfect manner, and the inclusion of the black pony, the ferrymare, made this stand out from other sad stories with this interesting concept:pinkiesmile:. Pinkie has always been my favorite and this is exactly how I would imagine her...going:pinkiesad2:. Please, more stories:scootangel:

Beautiful, thought provoking, and tear jerking, an excellent one shot and in character story of how pinkie would deal with death

I tried reading, but it is so sad. I will try to finish later, but i dont want to cry at school, lol. I do like how it is written, the short sentences give a feeling of tiredness and drain, it is how someone dieing would talk.

It was a good story, but you killed Pinkie Pie! I love Pinkie Pie... ALIVE!

Me at the beginning: I'm not gonna cry.

Me at the end: WHY AM I CRYING?

That was remarkably sweet. Well, bittersweet.

I think some hint as to why Pinkie is dying would make the story easier to suspend disbelief for. As it is it's just deus ex machina. (Well, thanatos ex machina. :pinkiehappy: ) Context is always good.

And to think I was going to ignore this. I'm glad I gave it a try

My soul is leaking through my eyes...:applecry:

Crap. Lost it at "Smile, and I'll smile with you..." Good thing no one else is around...:fluttercry:

I'm so glad I took a chance with this story. I don't usually like sad stories, but the final line is just...yeah. It's one of the best Crowning Moments of Funny/Awesome I've ever seen, and one of the best uses of the old fanon running gag. Well done! Have a cupcake. :pinkiecrazy:

Oh God, I'm sat here crying thinking about how Pinkie would want me to smile, so conflicted! :raritycry::pinkiehappy:

299850 I'm really at a loss for words. From the delivery to the notable repetitions, I really don't think you could've done better writing this.

The only thing I didn't like was the use of single quotes for speech, but that's just a personal quirk.


Beautiful and a fantastic piece of literature, great build up, great ending, great story telling. I need a tissue.. I really need to stop reading these kinds of fics

Dear lord, that is sad... :pinkiesad2: :fluttercry: :fluttershbad: Good job...

It was very emotional, and I cracked a little smile at that last part.

Why must writers bring Death to the land of sunshine and ponies? :fluttercry::fluttercry::fluttercry:

This is great, but I'd like to know WHY Pinkie died.

a cupcake for you
Because i'm pinkie pie:pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::pinkiesad2::raritycry:

That was incredible. This, right here, is how more people need to write. That last line made me smile, something fictions rarely do. I love how you caught the essence of Pinkie herself, AND made her intelligent. A lot of the time, she is thought of as a crazy party animal, but that is not right.

It was really bitter sweet, but I didn't cry to the very end. Pinky dying didn't seem so sad, the way you put it. It seemed happy :pinkiesmile: But I lost it at the very end, when she gave her the cupcake. I cried with joy, although I don't know why. I probably have the stupidest smile right now, after reading it.

I like to think that in Equestria, their might be a tiny but precious number of ponies who have the forethought and follow-through to thank the escort. Only one could actually give him anything more than words, but there would always be a few who would give her that much.

She had foreknowledge of the time of her death. The cause? It wasn't relevant to her.

ANd....now I´m sad. :applecry: Still, it was a cool story. Like it.

This piece, in my book, places equally with "My Little Dashie," "The Value of Friendship," and "The Last Crusade." Brilliant, Sir; absolutely, undoubtedly brilliant.

Oh, sweet Celestia, the ending! :fluttercry:

Didn't say it was relevant to Pinkie - did say it was relevant to the reader.

I've been wanting to write this fic for a while now, but could never get it off the ground. Well done.

Til death do we party, with the music I die.

A manly tear was shed. :fluttercry:

That's all I can say that will do this story any justice. Bravo.
