LIttle boxes made of ticky-tacky....

Pinkie brainwashing is best brainwashing.

Pinkie and Twilight stories without a Romance tag? Sign me up!

Edit after reading: Oh, that was fun. And yet more proof that Equestria is a horrible place to go if you believe in the sanctity of the mind.

Subtle but appropriate. Wonder what'll happen when Twi catches on. And it's so true about the candy colours.

I won't lie. I shouted something highly inappropriate at the screen when expanding the picture brought me here instead.
And then I was okay with it.

Horrific and true to life.

There, i thumbs'd up.

Where can i get off this ride?

A collection of stories about crazy horse friends? Sounds good to me. I especially love how Twilight doesn't even ask how Pinkie brought her into a representation of her own mind. It's Pinkie. That's an explanation in and of itself.

Pinkie Pie's powers prove ever more horrifying. Nice model of how the brain works though.

(Some of those candies do taste different though, just not like whatever fruit the color is supposed to represent because the flavoring is artificial).

Oh, I just let Young Ghost up into the driver's seat. I've given up on adulthood as counterproductive. :twilightsmile:

Brilliant work. But then again, your work always is. This, however, is differently brilliant. It's pleasing to see all that skill put to use for something fluffy and fun. And, honestly, I can't imagine a higher purpose for it. Not enough fun in the world, I always thought.

That was... disturbing

...and that was how Twilight invented the envelope.

Any little bit of sugar...

Makes sense to me. In a culture where two thirds of the populous must use their mouths as primary manipulators, they're going to improve the flavor of everything they can.

Maybe next time, Twilight should write the letters ahead of time...

*snickers* Patience is not Pinkie's strongest suit.

Oh dear... Well, making the best of a bad situation.

Alone, they can be amusingly crazy.

Together... Yeah. That's how the maddest of sciences happen. :twilightsmile::pinkiecrazy:

Flim & Flam bamboozled into Science? Their stint under the bridge will end up as a metaphor for their impending trip to Tartarus if they keep visiting Ponyville.

This is weirdly sweet.

This made me giggle. There's not nearly enough well-written Pinkie-Twilight interaction around Fimfic.

You should put 'Twenty-One' in here.

7187663 Thanks! I don't think I'm allowed to put 21 here. Even if I deleted it from Twilight Zone, it would still roll across the front page again when I posted it here, so would count as republishing. It might be a little too dark / OOC, too.

Upvote for this chapter :pinkiesmile:

I guess this is the closest to a pony crossover with Being John Malcovich as it gets?

Y'know... there might be horrible parents out there that convince their foals purple candies taste like eggplant. That's... wrong... as cruel as convincing them green candies taste like broccoli instead of green apple. That case might be harder to convince a pony that different colour candies all actually taste the same. Well, not that I personally have a problem with eggplant or broccoli. I think they taste quite swell, actually :3

You know those times when you were a kid when your grandpa was about to shove a new 9 volt battery into the old small radio and you stop him just so you could have a chance at licking the 9 volt and you had to do it all sneaky like? Yeah, this chapter kinda reminds me of that.

So Purple Panderer and Pester Pink actually do have synergy. Well, the kind that makes you run away with your arms flailing like ineffectual wet noodles (undoubtedly Twilight accidentally caused the wet noodle thing to happen).

Re-readin'. Still awesome.

I've always figured Pinkie and Twilight are really quite similar to each other, in that weird way that comes from being apparently totally opposite. They both have an impressive depth of knowledge in whatever subject interests them, they can both talk for hours about things no-one else understands, they can both perform feats that defy physics and expectations... I had a bunch more but I forgot (Edit: Ooh! They're both dedicated friend-makers!)

Of course, you could draw similar comparisons with any two of the Mane Six. Twilight and Rarity are both dedicated perfectionists, hard-working, hate to disappoint, know about Canterlot society but probably only in broad terms, etc, etc.

Still, I like to think Twi and Pinkie mesh better than other comparisons. Probably only because I like my own ideas, but, y'know.

(Also Rarity and AJ. And Dash and Fluttershy. Really, I just like comparing opposites :pinkiecrazy:)

I reviewed this story as part of Read It Now Reviews #80.

You can find my review here.

And thus, Twilight was saved from having an existential crisis.

Twinkie parties are the best parties
'Cause Twinkie parties don't stop until you've destroyed yourself both physically and mentally.

(If you happen to like reading other people's shorts involving Pink and Purple, Hoopy Mcgee has a rather amusing one.)
