“Please sir, can I have some more?”

Scootaloo finished off her meal, practically licking her plate clean before carrying it back up to the front. She placed it on the counter in front of the lunch pony and looked up at him, giving him her best puppy dog eyes. “Please sir, can I have some more?”

An Oliver Twist fan eh? I like the subtle reference here! :twilightsmile:

Rainbow Dash just looked at her friend. “Pinkie, you do know what an orphan is, right?”

“Of course I do silly. It’s a pony who doesn’t have any parents. I think Scootaloo will be great at it. I mean sure there’s a lot she’s got to do but she’s already impressed me with what she’s done so far.”

:rainbowderp: There are... so many ways to read into that statement! :rainbowlaugh:

While I do like the headcanon of orphan Scootaloo, a fic like this is refreshing every once in a while, and this was good. Well done! :pinkiesmile:

Well, that's certainly a sly way to interpret the prompt. I honestly didn't see this coming, even with the hint in the title. Nice work.

Thanks. :pinkiehappy:

There are... so many ways to read into that statement!

Yeah I pretty much wrote that line with the idea of 'what's the most inappropriate and insane thing Pinkie could say that would make total sense once you understood the context.' :rainbowlaugh:

I saw that reveal coming, but that might just be because I've had a rather similar idea myself, though I haven't gotten around to working on it at all. :twilightsheepish:

I'm surprised nobody before me has posted either of these videos (take your pick):

Thanks for writing! :scootangel:

>get to the end
>Cheerilee is not an orphan


I only have one question: did you ever think about who would play Daddy Warbucks and Grace Farrell? Or...no, I guess Warbucks still works as a pony name, though it wouldn't hurt to alter the 'war' part. Barnbucks? Grace on the other hand would need an alteration to her last name. Maybe Farrier?

Either way, I just want to properly imagine Scootaloo acting out the story. At least the scenes with Warbucks and Farrell anyway. :twilightsmile:
