Chapter 32: Party of Two.

Cracks where starting to appear in Shining Armor’s protection spell. The Daleks were almost through the magical barrier. If they broke through the barrier before Rainbow Dash got back with the thunder clouds (which was becoming
less likely by the minute.) then Canterlot would be almost completely defenseless.

Twilight looked at the strain on her bothers face and knew it wouldn’t be long now before he lost his concentration. Where in the world is Celestia?

Twilight, Shining Armor, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack were in the east tower of Canterlot. Just waiting. Waiting for what exactly? For the Daleks to break into the castle? For the Princess to come back? For everypony in Canterlot to die? It was pretty much inevitable now. Sad but true. Everyone was reacting differently knowing that they were inevitably going to die.

Applejack was kicking a bag of flour repeatedly to release stress. Twilight was pacing nervously back and forth glancing at her brother once and a while. Rarity snacked on anything she could get her hooves on, hay fries, hay chips whatever. There was only pony that seemed unaffected by the oncoming doom. Pinkie Pie. She was looking up at the cracks in the magic bubble like it was a bunch of clouds on a summers day.

“Ooooo that one looks like a pony!” Said Pinkie Pie said looking at one of the crack. It was as if she was threatened by the Daleks every other week.

“Oooooo that one looks like Twilight’s Library.” Said Pinkie Pie excitedly. “And that one looks like the Mona Lisa!” She said.

“That’s nice Pinkie.” Said Rarity not really paying attention.

“Oh and that one looks like a Fobs Watch.” Said Pinkie. The smile slowly left her face as she stared at her own fobs watch.

“Twilight, I have a question.” Said Pinkie Pie. “If somepony isn’t real and they die what happens?”

“What are you talking about? You mean like if a character in a book dies?” Asked Twilight wondering where this came from all of a sudden.

“Kinda.” Said Pinkie Pie staring at the fobs watch dangling from her neck.

“Well that all depends on what the author wants to happen.” Said Twilight. “They might go to pony heaven or they might just cease to exist.”

“What about an imaginary pony, like an imaginary friend? What happens to them when they die?”

“Nothing happens to imaginary friends Pinkie,” Said Twilight. “They never exited in the first place so it doesn’t even matter.” Pinkie Pie tensed up.

“Pinkie Pie? Are you alright dear?” Asked Rarity noticing the change in her behavior.
Pinkie Pie turned around with a smile on her face.

“Of course silly, why wouldn’t I be alright? Oh, silly me I forgot to get my pies!” She said.

“Why in tarnation would you need pies at a time like this?” Asked Applejack.

“To fight the Daleks of course, duh. How am I going to fight Daleks without any pies?”

She skipped happily across the room and out of the door.

“Well that’s Pinkie Pie for you.” Said Twilight.
The others nodded in agreement.

Pinkie Pie was looking around the castle gathering up as many Pies as she could. She hid any trace of sadness behind her cheerful grin. She hopped into the kitchen. She looked through the refrigerators. BINGO apple pies, cherry pies cream pies, and her favorite chocolate pies. Yummy! She bit into one of the chocolate pie gobbling it up in one bite. The Daleks where in trouble now! She thought.

Suddenly Pinkie heard a voice

“Pinkie Pie you shouldn’t eat so much. You’ll get a tummy ach.” Said the voice.

“Huh who said that?” Asked Pinkie Pie. She looked around the room. She was the only in the room besides a few stragglers gathering food for their bomb shelter but they weren’t the ones talking to her.

“You won’t be able to see me Pinkie.”

“Oh I get it you're a ghost!” Said Pinkie Pie coming to understanding. “I know how to deal with you.”

“Oh when I was a little filly and the sun was—“

The voice chuckled “That’s funny Pinkie Pie, but I’m not a ghost.”

“Huh your not?” Said Pinkie Pie confused. “Then what are you? And where are you?”

“I… am The Master”. Said the voice. “And I am you.”

“Huh, how could you be me if I’m me? Unless we’re like twins! That would make sense!”

“No Pinkie, I’m not a twin. Said the voice. I’m—“

“Oh I know you must be an alien from another planet!” Said Pinkie. “Here to eat my brains from the outside in.”

“Well… that’s actually close enough.” Said the voice sounding a little bit surprised and amused.

“I am a Time Lord.” Said The Master. “And my consciousness is trapped inside that fobs watch that’s hanging around your neck.” Said The Master.

“How did you manage to do that? I mean getting trapped in a watch is pretty hard to do. You must be pretty dumb.

"I’m not… you know what never mind that’s not important. The most important thing is that you open the watch and set me free.”

“Oh ok… Pinkie Pie went to open the watch.

“Wait a minute. Caan told me that if I opened the watch something bad would happen. Are you trying to trick me?” Asked Pinkie.

“Darn that meddling Caan, I-I mean, no nothing bad will happen. Now open the watch.”
Pinkie Pie gave the fobs watch a stare. Several ponies began giving Pinkie Pie stares of their own.

“Mommy is that pink pony talking to herself?”
“Never mind the crazy pony, just keep walking to the bunker, dearie.”

Meanwhile Pinkie Pie was still giving the “Master’s watch” a suspicious look.

“Alright fine it’s true.” Said The Master in Pinkie’s head. “You and I are the same person. I created you so that I would be able to stay hidden from the Time Lords. I gave you a personally, I gave you a backstory, and even false memories, but unfortunately I didn’t give you your own body. If you open the watch I’ll take control of your body permanently. You won’t exist anymore, but listen. If you don’t release me soon then all of Equestria will be destroyed under the wraith of the Daleks. I know their weakness you know. I could easily defeat them.”

Pinkie Pie thought about this long and hard.

“But isn’t Rainbow Dash is coming back with the storm clouds if we have them than well be able to beat the Daleks right?” Said Pinkie Pie trying to think of a reason.

"Pinkie Pie I’m afraid that Dash doesn’t have much time. And her opponent is that Dalek that beat the Wonderbolts. That magical bubble looks like it could burst at any minute. What she doesn’t make it in time? I’ll be your only hope."
Pinkie Pie thought about this for a little while. The Master prepared another batch of lies to convince pinkie to open the watch.

“Okey Dokey Lokey.” Said Pinkie.

“W-what really? You’ll go just like that?” The Master had not expected Pinkie to agree to open the watch especially with such a happy tone of voice.

“Of course, I wouldn’t want my let my friends down.” Pinkie Pie reached down to open her fobs watch.

“Yes open it yes!” Said The Master with anticipation.

“Wait.” Said Pinkie Pie suddenly stopping.

“What, what are you waiting for?”

“Well I was just thinking if you become me will you still act like me? Will you still like to party? Will you still like to break out into song? And what about my friends? I don’t want them to feel sad about me going. and most importantly do you like to laugh?” Pinkie heard The Master laugh so she would take that as a yes.

“If it makes you feel better we have very similar interest.” Said The Master. We both love parties and pranks. I’ve been known to break into song every once and a while. You know what? We’re so similar your friends probably won’t notice the difference. Now please open the watch so I can stop the Daleks.”

“Ok, then here I go.” She reached down to the watch and was about to open it.

“Wait a second!” Said Pinkie Pie suddenly.

“What is it now!” Asked The Master growing impatient now.

“I just realized that you’re new to Equestria.” Said Pinkie Pie.

“Yes so what?” Said The Master.

“That means that I have to throw you a “Welcome to Equestria Party” and myself “A Happy Deathday Party” But how can I throw you and me a party if I don’t exist anymore?”

“I don’t think that is necessary—“

“I’ll have to get ready before hand and get all the presents and food prepared. Your part of me so that means you’re like one of my best friends. And I would never forgive myself if you didn’t throw a super duper “Welcome The Master/Goodbye Pinkie Pie party!” Oh I’m so exited I better go get prepared!”

“Pinkie Pie I don’t think a party the most important thing right now!” Said The Master.

“Important? What that's mean, important? I’ve thrown parties for 6 million ponies, is that important? Here's a better question: is this party a threat to your plans?” The Master was silent. “Oh come on, you have access to all my memories! Is this party a threat to your plans?”
The Master looked through Pinkie’s memories.

“Well no.” Said The Master

“Are the parties of this world guilty of any crime by the laws of the Time Lords?”

“No.” Said The Master

“Okey dokey lokey. One more question, just one: has any pony ever avoided a Pinkie Pie party? 'Cause you're not the first one to try to skip it. Oh they've been so many others. And what you've got to ask is, what happened to them?” Said Pinkie Pie.

Memories of the past unwilling party guest, including Twilight and Zek, flood though The Master’s memorys.
“Hello! I'm Pinkie Pie. Basically, let’s boogie!”

Several ponies had stopped to hear Pinkie’s seemingly insane speech. Seeing that it had ended they walked away.

“So there’s no way to convince you otherwise?” Said The Master.

“Nope.” Said Pinkie Pie.

“Alright fine we can have you party, but there has to be hamburgers.”

“What’s a hamburger?”

The master sighed “You know what? Never mind just throw your party before the Daleks break through the shield alright?”

“Ok.” Pinkie took off to look for party decorations. She had only one concern on her mind. How does one throw a deathday/ welcome party? Would she need balloons and streamers? Where in the world would she find balloons at this time a day that said “Happy deathday Pinkie Pie”? And she would need to get both herself and The Master presents. But if she got something that they both could enjoy it would seem self-serving wouldn’t it? Maybe she could buy The Master tickets to the amusement park! Hmm. This would be a challenge… She skipped off happily in search of party supplies.
