That guy wot does the kissy horses, usually of the pink variety.

It seems like an easy choice, doesn't it? However, when you've spent a thousand years away from other ponies, the darkness can be comforting. It will take a lot of work to drag Luna out of the darkness, but one pink pony is up to the task.

This story references some events in the Friends Forever #12 comic, but is not required reading by any means to enjoy this story.

great story hope to see next chapter soon

5432069
Thanks! There'll be another chapter very soon. Don't worry. :pinkiehappy:

5432094 can't wait there's not enough pinkie pie and Luna stories in my opinion this two make a cute couple whether as friends or lovers.

5432134 That's actually why I wrote this. Very few people have tried shipping Pinkie with Luna, and I already ship Pinkie with pretty much else. Why not Luna?

5432244 hopefully more stories will come

great chapter even better then the first one. that being said I think it could have been longer but that just my opinion

5434129
They'll vary in size, but each chapter will ostensibly be, one day per chapter.

This story has some serious potential!
Luna and Pinkie is quite the rare couple but I can't think of anypony better than Pinkie to make Luna laugh and smile with all her heart!
Fav'd & followed. :pinkiehappy:

P.S.: Just one little wish: Let Pinkies ingenuity shine through a little more at times. I know she's random like Discord and it's what we love her for, but I also think she's at least as intelligent as Twilight, just that she doesn't show it the same way.

5434234
I'm not sure there will be much need for ingenuity in this story. Also, Pinkie's intelligence tends to be much more of a streetwise fashion rather than Twilight's booksmarts.

But yeah, if you read my other stories you probably know by now I like to delve in deeper than just "lol random!" when it comes to Pinkie Pie.

5434499
Good to hear but no, I haven't read them yet.
Another thing I have to add to my read later list.
Thanks :twilightsmile:

P.S.: Of course you're right with the streetwise smarts but intelligence has little to do with your field of expertise, so my point stands, anyway.
Be that as it may, I think you're probably right and you should write your story like you want to. I will enjoy it either way.

A particularly well done chapter.

5486639
Thank you!
I tend to write Pinkie a little bit deeper than maybe I should, but I don't regret it here.

5489342

Pinkie can be deep though often it wont seem like it unless you look at it closely.

This was an interesting chapter. I like your idea with the guardians.

An effective way to use Pinkimina in a way that is positive.

I can imagine it forming into a blue slushie beard.

this is cute, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanna see more :pinkiehappy:

5635234
You needn't worry. This story is almost complete. As in, the chapters are all done except the last. the only reason I haven't posted them all yet is because editing isn't done. I should have a chapter out in the next three days I hope.

Better buckle up though. This story has a few twists and turns coming up soon.

5636083 Twists and turns :pinkiegasp: ? PERFECT! :pinkiehappy:

I'm really liking this story. :pinkiesmile:

But yeesh, what's up with Twilight? Might she have a crush on one of them as well? Guess we'll find out soon enough. See you next update. :)

I wonder why Twilight cares so much about Pinkie dating a princess.

No, bad Twilight. Pinkie is dating Luna, you stay out of this.

Can I punch Twilight?

5747021
Don't you think it's a bit early to punch Twilight before you know why she's acting this way?

Twilight's got some explaining to do. >:c

Interesting premise considering that Pinkie and Luna were both Bearers of the Element of Laughter. As well as Honesty and Loyalty in Luna's case, but Laughter was amongst them.

5747413 A bit, but she made a smile frown D:

5748374
Indeed, but as well know, use it or lose it.

While some parts have felt a touched rush, this has been an absolutely delightful read. I am quite impressed to see another author take on the rather challenging task of delving so deeply into a character not their own, and trying to represent their ideals and personality in their own distinct styles. So, above everything, kudo's to your bravery dear author, it is well appreciated!

5773751
Thank you very much for the kind words.
Yeah, I admit this story does feel rushed in many ways. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll ever get good enough to stop that being the case. It's pretty much the same with all of my stories.

I've actually been disappointed at how little this story has received and I don't quite know what to pin it on apart from my own inadequacies. It also doesn't help that it's a crack ship so there's that. I love thinking about these characters in ways no one else really does, especially when trying to keep it without violating canon.

Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read it, and I assure you this is one story that will be completed. I'm already up to the last chapter as far as rough drafts go so it's really down to editing.

I think that you have some great ideas and I do like how Luna interacts with Pinkie. While not common I actually like how Pinkie and fan made Lunas interact. They make for an intersting pair.

5775913
Lemme tell ya, I debated real hard as to whether I should even do this story given how little we actually know about Luna.

In the end, I decided upon a slightly modernized Luna. One which had taken an effort to adapt to the new time and age, (for example, her speech classes to remove the old tongue) but still isn't used to, or ready to fully embrace the public. Though she would never admit it (except to the one she loves) she's scared.

Which is where Pinkie comes in.

This is the best chapter yet. It went deep, and it showed how much Luna still regretted her actions, but also how naive she can be with Pinkie Pie. Also one line just made me so happy becuase it made her seem so normal Well, princess normal. Not normal normal. It was the line about her being a princess and not having to wait.

WHAAT PINKIE CAN'T BE DEAD!!!!!!!!! that is not ok:applecry::fluttercry::raritydespair:

5778303
I actually debated heavily on that line. the whole time she's whining about being a princess and how she's sick of it, but, she's never really had that authority challenged. Doing so reminded her just how comfortable she can be in that position.

Just gonna drop this here before someone else does.

I often feel that pinkie should have this perspective in the show. She is a great character, in my opinion, but I would think she'd be better if she had more insight and deeper perspectives on life.

Though, being a child's cartoon, it's not something that'd be easy to get.

5783053

Nobody wants to wait for love to happen. People are willing to if they really love somebody. Its a phrase that seems to work very well in this story, for her, due to her title and the reasons behind it.

Just gonna say, if and when Twilight feels extremely guilty because of what she did, I will be very happy :D

…………………
GOD F**KING D**NIT TWILIGHT THIS IS YOUR FAULT

Next chapter you'll find out just why she's acting the way she is.

Well, the subplot is resolved.

I did a lot of skimming cause it was all awkward and I hate awkward.

5856889
Awkward because of the situation, or awkwardly written? Just wondering.

5857115
The situation. I made the reading awkward with how I skimmed it though, so there's that.

I as expecting her to be jealous and wanting one of them two, didn't think of celestia.

Hell yeah! Shootin' down Twilestia. I love you so much right now. Also very glad Pinkie didn't actually contemplate suicide(This is a kinda overall criticism from what I've read). That would have made her too unstable in my eyes. Twilight also seemed very off and I suspected she had feeling for someone that drove her to act this way. When she said it was Celestia, I was ready to walk away, but you saved it. Thumbs up. Although I think Twilight will eventually move on and not wallow in sadness from her very soft rejection. if she does it in the next chapter without a long time having passed, it will make her feelings for Celestia seem very shallow and not worthy of the huge turmoil she caused because of them. Look forward to more since I love Pinkie love stories.

:pinkiehappy::heart::twilightsmile: is my favorite Pinkie ship so it only seemed natural to me that it was Pinkie she wanted, but that would have made things far too awkward (well more than now anyway).

5903133
I don't really like "shooting down" pairings, so to speak, because if people like them, hey, people like them. It's just that in my personal view, having pretty much raised Twilight, Celestia would naturally feel more like a mother and not return those affections.

There actually Is a condition where students may find themselves falling in love with their teachers. However, once the facade is broken, they usually revert quickly into normal emotional patterns. So yeah, this story will have Twilight following that paradigm.

Glad you enjoy it thus far, the next update will have the final chapter and epilogue and it's still a little bit away.

5903220
Oh I totally agree. The only relationship I can tolerate is mentor/student for them. Always struck me as strange and kind of mean to Twilight's parents that some stories paint Celestia as the perfect mother in Twilight's eyes. Pretty sure in the show her parents seem to care and from the comic Twilight's First Day (This is the beginning of the comic and I know it's a fan comic, but it captures what would have happened very well in my opinion), I like to think that perhaps Twilight's parents aren't seen much since she has sort of been crying for independence for a while. They let her go because she wanted to and it really was a great opportunity for her, but it was difficult for them because they were giving up their little girl so early in her life. I think Twilight is smart enough to understand what her parents did and love them all the more for it.

5903644
I really would like to see more about Twilight's parents in the show. I get the idea that long nights at the library in Canterlot didn't leave her with much time to spend with them.

The only thing we know for sure is that she loves her brother, and had a foalsitter enough to learn and bond with her extremely well which might speak volumes to the kind of ponies Twilight's parents are if they could afford to hire an alicorn to foalsit Twilight.

Eh, maybe we'll get some tidbits this season.
