Well, that was unexpected... :pinkiehappy:

I think that qualifies as a double bait and switch.

but it has seven different paragraphs without the letter ‘e’,

HOW, and who the hell has time to specifically leave out that letter for SEVEN paragraphs.

Great story! Pinkie and Twilight were in character (also, props for keeping Pinkie in character, several great writers say they have difficulty with it) and the ending, while unexpected, fit PERFECTLY. The only thing I can fault you on is the writing itself, as the end passage

'Twilight glanced dejectedly at the ground. She hadn’t meant to get so frustrated with Pinkie Pie. After all, Pinkie was just trying to help. But organizing the library was a task that demanded logic and precision, and neither quality had anything to do with Pinkie Pie. As much as Twilight enjoyed Pinkie’s craziness, this really was a task that needed to be done by somepony who was organized, meticulous, and rational.'

could have been written in a less tedious way, but it doesn't really detract from the story. Good job!

The books were perfectly arranged alphabetically by author.

How the hell did that happen?

Thanks for your input. I'm glad you think that I got Pinkie Pie right. I also appreciate the critique on my writing. I do tend to get wordy and repetitive at times, which is something I'll try to keep in mind in the future.

What I'm more freaked out about is the fact that you managed to come up with these organization concepts and drills and it only makes sense because Pinkie!

Finally, Twilight managed to regain a hold on her sanity long enough to speak up. “Pinkie, how can this possibly an organization system? It makes no sense!”

it missing an


good story eter way

That ending :rainbowlaugh:

I was half expecting Twilight to attempt finding a book and discover that the system actually makes sense to her, but...

I guess that sort of happened.

I'm chalking this up to Pinkie being Pinkie, but just to make sure...

"...Like learning how to books.”

Is this intentional? Because if Pinkie logic isn't being taken into account, this makes no sense. Otherwise, though...
The answer is Pinkie. :pinkiecrazy:
