Greetings, I am Merlos the Mad. I am a dabbler of both words and wizardry in my free time. I also invite you all to partake in my musings. Take care though, as they are the product of a madman.


It's time for Pinkie Pie to get a manecut once again, that time when even her own gravity defying hairstyle can no longer support its own weight.

But, something goes wrong.

that cover image threw me for a loop. I'm going to have to give this story a shot, seems like a great new idea.

Short story? Bitch please, you already got 4.5k done! Merlos is showing everyone up again, folks! :derpytongue2:
Also, loving it so far! :pinkiehappy:

That mane cut looks really good on pinkie. :rainbowderp::twilightblush::coolphoto:

Wow, Pinkie looks really cute in the Rainbow style.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out. (Remember! Short story!

Let's be fair, though. Pinkie looks really good with that haircut.

I foresee shenanigans. Possibly shouting too.

She could stay, risk ridicule, or just fly off through her escape route as she'd planned to.

Since "staying" and "risking ridicule" are part of the same option, they should be joined by an "and", not a comma.

Great story! I judging ponies by their looks, but... damn Pinkie you look nice with that manecut! :eeyup:


I like what this promises.

You got my attention, mate!

Am I the only one who thinks that Pinkie actually looks sexy with that haircut? :twilightblush:
Can't wait for this to be complete so I can read it :twilightsmile:

Oooooh noooo...

Poor Pinkie's getting Dash's haircut...


Do go on.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Damn...That mane. :rainbowderp:

Hold a sec, thinking about it. :rainbowhuh: If pinkie had that mane in season 1 and so on, I can totally see more clop fics written about her. Her current hair style is just a little too out there and not very attractive at all. It's actually why Rainbow's number one for clop fics next to...I think either Twilight or Applejcak? Whatever. Anyway guys like girls who take care of themselves, or girls who happen to be pretty active but not hyper. Keeps them interesting, which is why Pinkie Pie is nightmare fuel for a few friends of mine who happen to be cloppers...They think she's ugly, and I agree only with her out of control hair. I mean tell me how many girls with afro's do you have a thing for? I'll guess none. But this brings me to the Title of your story. Does the mane truly make the pony? I would guess yes.

Someone should really get on that too. :ajsmug: Making a video about that one observation I saw. I could be wrong too, but it's definitely thought provoking.

She pretty cute with a short mane

DAT MANE! Seriously, she looks great like that.


It's starting to sound like I need to do the followup sequel I was thinking about for this...

ohmygosh, Pinkie looks so cute with short hair!! :D I can't wait to read more! :)

Very intriguing story. The German is understandable and the minute errors really help sell the being rusty angle.

Please may I have more?:fluttershysad:

3584483 You, good sir, are a gentleman and/or scholar!

Congrats on getting featured!

This is extraordinarily silly, even by Pinkie standards.

I will, of course, have to see it through. :pinkiecrazy:

Pinkie's hair can be cut? I could have sworn it bore superman-esque indestructability.

Pinkie! Have you been playing with kryptonite again?

This is a good start can't wait to read more.

Man, that mane style for Pinkie Pie is just too great.

And so it turns out that Pinkie's mane was like Sampson's hair... and with it short she lost her manic powers and became a morose emo who sat in the shadows smoking Poison Joke and writng bad poetry.



I like Pinkie's mane! It gives me a "America's Sweetheart" Feel! :pinkiesmile:

Oh Rainbow Dash, look at what your shenanigans hath wrought. XD

Interesting story so far, and the story image is cute; always neat to see our favorites with a different style. Loved the idea of the language barrier playing a role, as well as "Hans" in general.

Pinkie looks so cute with that short mane!!! I love it! :pinkiehappy:

Poor Hans... If I were a girl I'd let him do my hair, but my hair sucks. (And I'm already balding at the tender age of 22, so... Yeah. Fun.)

3584986University of Pennsylvania found a protein that counteracts the protein responsible for male pattern baldness! They found it last year. You can google the findings. :pinkiesmile:

3584875 Someone get on this! Stat!

3584986 I'm losing my hair too!

We can be 'Browns Mills' Bestest Bald Buddies'! Except first you'd have to move to Browns Mills, NJ and you might be freaked out by the surreal mix of drug gangs and inbred Piney's everywhere. And there's also the military alien experiments and the Jersey Devil and the toxic waste (and the Toxic Crusader, who lives down the street), but you'll get used to it because once you enter YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE!!

So come on over!


First thought after seeing Hans' name:

Apologies for missing "Here is your lollipop"

very good pic of what Pinkie would look like with a short mane. me likes.:pinkiehappy:

Oh. Oh dear.

Tell me she at least gets it free of charge.

...Imagination running wild, attempting to calculate the effect of lighter weight and reduced wind drag on a standard model Pinkie Pie.

3585056 are there any jobs there? I would seriously consider it if there are...

Don't mess with Zohan movie reference, perhaps? A super soldier wants to be a hairdresser, so he moves to Amerika. How fitting! :rainbowlaugh:

The German was a little rusty, but it was a good effort!

I have but one reaction.


Good GOD, look at that picture at the end! :raritystarry:

Okay, since just about all of us agree that Pinkie looks great with this manestyle (and in the case of some of us, sexy), who wants to make a petition for the writers of the show to actually make this a thing? :pinkiehappy: Anyone? Anyone?
*sighs* I didn't think so... :ajsleepy:

Pinkie looks great with that shorter manecut in the cover pic

also, that picture of rainbow in the sauna... she is either feeling really awkward or really turned on...

waiting for more mein mad wizardy author freund!

"Quick as a speeding thing that could go really fast":rainbowwild:it's time to live up to my family name and face full life consequ...oh, you get the joke.:pinkiecrazy:
I'm liking this a lot. PInkie's short hair style is kinda cute, as is the picture at the end of this chapter. Upvote and watch from moi.:raritystarry:

How come when you're describing her long mane, before it got all puffed back up but than falls apart. All I can think about it this here image.
