When the new kid comes to town, Pinkie Pie volunteers herself to throw him a Pinkie Party.

Met Your Match

"So, are you enjoying your stay in ponyville so far?" Fluttershy smiled at me. She had been opening up little by little.

"Hard to say so far. I've met a pony with wings and a rainbow mane,"

"Rainbow Dash?"

"Yeah. I met a pony that was obsessed with her work, and rants a lot."


"Yes again, and Applejack wanted to eat my name, which I don't find to be very appetizing." I slipped again.

"Oh. Do you mind me asking where you're from? If... that's okay...?" she said, half shrinking.

"I'm from way out of town. Um, do you mind me asking you something?"

"Um... I'm not sure..." she stopped, expecting the worst.

"Why do you have wings? I've never seen that before! Back in Trottsten, we don't have ponies that fly... I'm sorry, that's sort of strange."

"Oh, d-do you not like that about me? Because I can walk if you'd prefer.... I'm sorry."

"Huh? No, that's not what I meant Fluttershy. It's just... foreign I guess."

"Oh..... okay........." she said looking down and playing with a rock on the ground

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings..." I felt bad for opening my mouth.. not only did I hurt her feelings, it looks like she's about to cry.


I heard a voice call out from behind us.

"There you are, I've been looking for you!"

It was a colt, a little bit older than myself came trotting up in the distance.

Fluttershy sucked in a huge gasp and squee'd.

"TREY!" she shouted as she bolted off into the distance to join the male.

"Wow, didn't see that coming. Like, at all, did you?"

"Um, Pineapple, who are you talking to...?"

"Uh, no one."

"So, you're the new kid in town huh? I'm Trey. I'm sure you've met my filly-friend Fluttershy as well huh?"

"Yupperdoodles! And let me just tell you, you've got quite a gem there Trey.I'm Pineapple Spice by the way. Fluttershy here was just showing me to the library to see twilight. Apparently she'll have her nose in a book. I've got to say though, that must be awfully uncomfortable..."

"Um, are you alright there kid?" Trey chuckled.

"Of course! Why do you ask?"

"Well, it seems like you've been hanging out with Pinkie Pie too much. Anyways, there's the library. Me and my filly have some stuff we gotta get done. See you later!"

I waved goodbye to the two as Fluttershy roosted herself on his back, and she hugged him. I smiled at the romance that the two had made.

Their story must be an interesting one...

"Nice, isn't it?" The voice was somewhat soft, and had a hint of longing to it. "I'm Twilight Sparkle," she said to me as I turned around and saw the purple pony standing there.


"E-Excuse me?"

"I've been looking for you everywhere! And look at the time! I was here at like, 7:45, and now it's like, 12:00! you have no Idea what I've been through! First it was the 'Hey, you must be new, go see Twilight, I'm Rainbow Dash, stop calling me 'Ma'am'!' then it was 'My mother taught me this, and why would you want to go to the library, follow me, I'll take you! oops, wrong place? Oh well, Applejack will take care of you now, tahtah!' Then 'ah'd love to help yew, but I gots tuh stay with the farm! Fluttershy will take care of yew!' then it was '...............hi...............' and now I'm here."

"Oh, I see you met Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Applejack and Fluttershy." she chuckled.

"Gee, what gave you that idea?" I said as I squinted at the purple filly.

"Well, welcome to ponyville, it's very nice here! You know, when we're not saving the place from Parasprites, or Nightmare Moon, or things like that. I hope you find everything great here!"

"..." I was speechless.

She sat there for at least two minutes smiling at me. All I could do was let my eye twitch.

"Is something-"

"THAT'S IT?!" I groaned.

"What do you mean?"

"I came all this way just for 'enjoy your stay'?"

"What were you expecting?"

"I don't know, but something definitely not this boooriiing!"

And now you just troubled the book worm.

"What do I do, people? Their all crazy!"

"Have you met Pinkie Pie already? Because she talks to the air like somepony is there also." she said confused.

"Who's Pinkie Pie?" I said even more confused.

"Oh, well, there she is right now. Go ahead and talk to her. Good luck! I'll show you around after she runs off."

Pinkie Pie trotted up singing a familiar song about cupcakes. She was Pink, had an interestingly fluffy mane, and had blue eyes.

"Hi there! I'm-"

She gasped in all of the oxygen around her and bolted off.

"Okay then, shall I show you around.... Hey, where did he go?" Twilight looked around, but I was already off chasing the Pink mare that ran away

There was a rustle in the bushes as Pinkie Pie slowly poked her head out of the bushes.

"I lost him! Good, He's new, I should-"

"Who are we hiding from?" I asked

She gasped all the oxygen again and bolted off.

"Whew! That was close! He'll never find me in this pot!"

"Why are we in a pot?" I asked again a bit annoyed.

"How are you doing that?"

"Doing what?"

"Getting here before me? duh!"

"Um. I just followed you."

"Well Stop It!" She screamed

"I just wanted to talk to-" but it was too late, she had bolted, and I was left there in the pot by myself.

I walked my way back to the center of town to meet the mayor, and along the way introduced myself to the locals, and a few of the ponies I had previously met.

I sighed.

Darn it. I finally found the filly that everyone was talking about.

Pinkie Pie.

"Hello? Is the mayor here?"

"Right here~! What is it you need? Oh, you're the new colt in town, aren't you?"

"Yeah. That's me."

"Your new home awaits you, it was just finished being built yesterday. All the specifications are as you ordered! Enjoy~!"

"Thank you Mayor." I said while walking out the door to my home. it was already 7:00, and I was beat from traveling.

When I got home, I turned on the lights and put all my stuff away. I had a lot to think about tonight. A job, getting to know people, and maybe even finding a nice filly to hang out with, Like Trey and Fluttershy. After all that I had to go over, and all that I had been through, there was only one thing on my mind.

"Pinkie Pie..."

I closed my eyes, and went instantly to sleep.
