And THAT'S what you get for attempting the spell with two ponies in the circle before trying it with just one Twilight. :facehoof:
Good start.

Interesting. Aside from a small handful of insignificant grammatical errors, this is a really great first chapter.
Keep it up!

For science. You monster.

"I want to do some magic!"
And that's how Equestria was unmade.

:facehoof: Oh Twilight. Why would you say that?! Never, EVER say "what could possibly go wrong". :trollestia:

Famous. Last. Words. Famous I tell ya!

make the last statement to a soap series and you got nothing but truble.

This is going to be amazing. Looking forward to the next chapter. For science.

Well, they're doomed. On the bright side, Twilight will get to experience Pinkie Sense firsthoof. I wonder if she'll notice any of us out of the corner of her borrowed eye.

Oh, and remember: Everyone loves Magical Pinkie 'cause the tricks that she does are ever so squinky.

*Looks at last line and facehoofs* TWILIGHT Y U SAY SUCH THINGS?:twilightangry2:

Bubsy: What could possibly go wrong?

FINALLY had a chance to read. Very amusing, I particularly liked the intervention :D

"Besides, what could possibly go wrong?" Two thing I have to say about that:
1. More fameous last words have never been spoken.
2. NEVER SAY THAT! When you do, something always does.

wow awsome secound chapter! :twilightangry2:

wow awsome, secound chapter! :twilightangry2:

:rainbowlaugh: This is gonna be great! Can't wait for the next one!:pinkiehappy:

I just got back from reading a 40,000 word chapter, so I may be a tad biased when I say this felt short. Other than that, I liked. Keep it up!

I dunno what Twighlight is worried about, Winter Wrapup was one of the biggest musical numbers they've ever done, and she started that up!

Celestia help us if Twi manages to decode Pinkie's fourth-wall and anti-gravity effects though!

You know what is funny? I read fanfics with murder, arson genocide and other awful things. Not that I consider them ok, but I didn't really care. However when Twilight said "I'll just change the parameters of my experiment!" I out loudly said: You can't do that! You should be ashamed!


Yes - I work at university. How did you know?

Oh-oh, Inminent dissaster INCOMING!:pinkiegasp:

It's funny how I just cannot hear Twilight voice speaking with Pinkie's mannerisms, or vice versa.

Finally got around to reading this and have to say I love it so far :pinkiehappy:. When reading this chapter I only noticed one tiny error so I'll show it to you in case you want to change it.

"She gasp, her eyes snapping open as the power jumped connections and changed the direction of the spell." - "gasp" should be gasped

can't wait till chapter 3

This story is awesome. :pinkiesmile:

There are quite a few grammar mistakes, but aside from that this was a really good first chapter. I really enjoyed it. Going to read on now, "For science!"


after a long hiatus, a new chapter:twilightsheepish:

This is potentially the dumbest thing that I've ever seen hit this site's featured box...AND I LOVE IT.

Pinkie Will be the greatest magician EVER! Maybe with her new powers she can break through that damn 4th wall

Wether canon or not, twilight bucks a lot of spells up. you sure she should be a princess, 'tia?:trollestia:

I love this! Bodyswaps are usually about a frantic race to return the swapped individuals to their bodies, so seeing them actually try to go through with it is a really nice change of pace, and Twilight and Pinkie are so adorable trying to be each other. Can't wait for more!

Twilight giggled at her friend's exuberance. "Besides, what could possibly go wrong?"

Every time I see the words "What could possibly go wrong?" I imagine it in a deep, ominous voice with foreboding echoes.

And to answer that question:

Pinkie Pie.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I assumed this was dead. I'd all-but forgotten that I'd favourited it. Well, glad it's back, because this fic had a promising start.

Took half a century, but it was worth the wait.

Okay... from the structure of that one paragraph, I assume it was Twilight who got an ear flop? It is a bit unclear, though with Twilight's line in there it's probably a good guess. Though you should probably reword it into something like: "Twilight felt one of her ears flop." Less confusion here, because given how I sometimes see authors mix up an action of one pony with a line from another pony into one short paragraph, so it looks like it was one and the same pony where there were two, I am unsure who got the Sense here.
... long sentence is long... meh, it stays.

I'm surprised that there hasn't been a canon episode like this. I mean, they had the cutie mark swap, but the Freaky Friday body swap happens at least once in almost every cartoon. Disney loves this trope. Ghostbusters, Garfield, Flintstones, Futurama, Family Guy... it's tougher to find a cartoon that doesn't do it.

So far, I've only read a few fics on here that use this theme. JJ Gingerhooves' Role Reversal is a good one.

Yours is shaping up to be good as well. Twilight has obviously been working way too hard when she trusts Pinkie Pie to look through her notes and not summon Cthulhu by accident.

Huzzah! The fic has been resurrected from the bowels of Tartarus!

wow, found this fic by mere luck, and good thing i did, because its really good.
i hope that you can update it soon

Twilight might actually be better than Pinkie at foalsitting! :pinkiegasp:

2541397 Oh, I fully understand the site's system of the bottom 3 slots of the featured box being reserved for stories that have been previously featured stories after updates.

Contrary to popular belief, I've been on this site considerably longer than I've had an account.

2542188 And then you entirely miss the point.

What are the odds Twilight manages to make those cupcakes without burning herself? Wasn't she supposed to make cookies, though?

This is still alive? Huh. I was just checking on it a couple of weeks ago and wondering what had happened.

Glad to see more, but hope we won't have to wait another 13 months for it. :raritywink:

Twilight: "What could possibly go wrong?"
Me: "Oh, a number of things, Twilight. Watch the sky."

The goal is to get the rest of this done in a far more, uh, timely fashion :twilightsheepish:
