Baking Perfect Pie - Kumare Tanamaru

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

Pinkie's Party

"Surprise!" The entire town shouted at me as I entered the door to the library.

"Wow, and I though library's were suppose to be quiet! I like this much better! Let's party!"

The party raged on for quite some time. We danced the day away and I tried my hardest to make sure everypony was having fun. I also tried my hardest to talk to Pinkie Pie some more, but she kept getting distracted, and I kind of had to force my hanging out with her a little bit. She didn't seem to mind very much, but I still felt bad for doing so. She decided to tell me half of her life's story. She had grown up on a rock farm with her parents, and she didn't know how to smile back then. With the beautiful smile that she had on the entire time I had known her, that was hard to believe. She was interrupted by a certain rainbow maned pony that wanted to start another conga line.

"C'mon Pinkie, It'll be fun!"

"Okey Dokey Lokey! But what about Pineapple?"

"Hmm. I got it! He can be at the head! It's his party anyways!"

"Great idea Rainbow Dash! What do you say, Pineapple? Don'tcha wanna start it?"

"Of course!" I responded with delight.

Wow, back home we NEVER got to do stuff like this!

The conga line had started when the song "Pony Rock Anthem" Started playing. The DJ was somepony I was a little familiar with. She told me her name was Vinyl Scratch, and she said she was happy to attend my party. I think she enjoyed playing music for my party than actually partying. The conga line stopped soon after the song had ended, and everypony scattered too the different parts of the room as they were before.

"Hey, has anypony seen Rainbow Dash?" asked Twilight curiously

"I'm *pant* right here!" She seemed out of breath and then winked at me.

Huh? I didn't understand why she did this. Maybe it was a regular thing for her? I didn't know her well enough to know yet, so I blew of this detail for a while.

"Alright everypony," said Vinyl Scratch "everypony partner up, it's time for a slow song." She said putting on a new record.

It was a nice and soothing song, but there was a problem. I didn't have a filly to partner with! I started to panic. I had one filly in mind, but I didn't know if she wanted to dance with me.

"Hey, Pinkie Pie."

"Oh, hey there Dashie!"

"Why don't you go partner up with Pineapple? I mean, you threw this party for him, and you don't want him to be left out of the funnest part, do you?"

"Ohmygosh, you're right! Okey Dokey Lokey!" She said as she bounced toward me.

Rainbow Dash winked at me again. I had a feeling that she knew my feelings for Pinkie Pie. In gratitude, I nodded my head at her.

"Hey, havin fun yet?"

"Yes, very much!"

"Well, it's slow dance time, and you know what that means~!"

"Um. Is there something special?" I said confused. Wasn't the point of slow dancing to slow dance?

"Of course! But you won't know that until you try it!"

"Oh, Okey Dokey Lokey!" I smiled at her, and she returned with the same gesture.

"Here, let me help you." She said taking my arm.

She took my arm and lifted me onto my hind legs. She then placed my hoof around her waist and I blushed a little. She then put her hooves on my shoulders.

"Now, we're going to have to support each others weight, okay?"

"Have you done this before?"

"Nope!" she said smiling

"Oh. Then this should go well!" I said. She was staring at me and smiling very widely.

"Why are you blushing?"

I suddenly realized that I was

"Well..." I said trying to come up with something to say. "I've experienced anything like this before. Parties, lights, music, other ponies, dancing. especially not with a pretty filly like you."

"Aw, well you were missing out then!" She said

Well that didn't work. I thought.

"You're doing well for your first time dancing, Pineapple!" She smiled at me and I smiled back. Her mane was covering one of her eyes, and she looked, as Rarity would say, "Simply Divine!"

"Hey Pinkie Pie?"


I was about to say something, but just then the song ended and she put herself down from our dance.

"Oh, the song's over."

"Yep! So, what did you want to tell me?"

Just then lightning struck and the electricity went out.

Perfect. I thought.

There was slight panic, but everypony calmed down after a few seconds.


"Here, come with me. Hold on to my tail, but not too tight!"

I did so and we went into the back room, where Pinkie Pie lit a candle.

"So, what did you want to tell me Pineapple?" She grinned with a slight smile.

"I like you a lot Pinkie Pie."

"Aw, well thanks! I like you too! You're really fun to be around!" She obviously didn't seem to understand.

"No, Pinkie Pie. I really like you."

"You just said that! Why are you repeating yourself?"

"Pinkie Pie," I said moving closer to her. "I really like you."

"Oh! Oh..! ..........................Ooooohhhhh......."

She finally understood.

"Yeah," I put a hoof on her arm and she smiled. "I've liked you for a long time now Pinkie Pie."



"For once in my life, I don't know what to say..."

What should I say now?

Tell her you love her!

But, I don't know if I do!

*sigh* You're hopeless!

"Well," She said gathering her thoughts. "I'm glad you feel about me in that way, but I don't know how to feel about this! It's the first time anypony has liked me in that sort of way. Especially not a handsome colt like you! I'm sorry, but I'll need some time to figure out my feelings first. I really do like you Pineapple, but let's just stay friends for now, okay?"

"I can live with that." I said with a loving smile.

"Good, I'm glad you think so~!" She pulled me in for a hug, and I let the moment last for what felt like forever.

Her mane smelled like vanilla, and her body was warm and soft. She pulled away and gave me a loving smile, and loving eyes before saying that we should probably return to the party. I agreed, and we went back into the room filled with ponies.

Suddenly the lights came on, and Twilight decided that it was time for everypony to go home.

"Wait, Pineapple." Twilight said "Can you stay and chat for a while? The gals and I want to talk to you. I think it might be kind of crucial to your living here in Ponyville."

I looked at the clock.

"I've got time. What did you girls want to talk about?"

Twilight paused for a second.

"Your past. We want to know everything! Where you came from, why you left, stuff like that."

"Oh yes," said Fluttershy as she walked Trey out the door, giving him a kiss goodbye.

I sighed

I want that...

"We'd also like to know what kind of critters there were back where you were from." she continued.

"Yeah," said Rainbow Dash. "I also heard from a semi-reliable source that you've never seen a pony with wings before, what's up with that?"

"Never seen ah pony with wings?" said Applejack. "Shucks, that sort of thing is purtty common around these parts!"

"Whoa, whoa slow down there girls," I said. I'll explain everything. Juss, I mean just hold your horses."

I took in a deep breath

Here goes nothing.
