Princess Luna must go on a diplomatic mission to the isolated city of Marem, and is tasked with choosing a suitable traveling partner to accompany her on the way. She does not choose the talented and magically-inclined Twilight Sparkle, nor the quick and loyal Rainbow Dash, nor even the strong and talented Applejack. Instead, she surprises everypony by taking Pinkie Pie with her and leaving without a word. Not even Celestia can guess the reasoning behind her sister's choice.

For whatever reason, Princess Luna and Pinkie Pie set off to find and negotiate an agreement with the mysterious community of unicorns located beyond the borders of Equestria. What they find there will impact not only Equestria's stance on foreign policy, but the very lives of the two ponies at the center of it all.

That was short, but definitely good. Keep it up. :scootangel:

Not bad, I'd really like to see where this goes. It was well written and I really liked the set up for the story; it reminded me a little of my favorite point and click game: Syberia II. I'm looking forward to see what tales adventures unfold for Luna and Pinky.

Peace Out.

Interesting so far :pinkiehappy: Going by the title, I'm hoping for some schizophrenic madness, but the lack of a [Dark] tag suggests it won't be of the kind I usually read about.

Tracked nevertheless :twilightsmile:

The most unlikeliest of adventurous pairings, written well?

Consider yourself followed.

well then. i admit, i looked into this with the intention of completely discrediting the very idea of such an odd paring.
but now.... i find myself reminded why i am a fan of Pinke Pie and Princess Luna.
(All Hail the New Lunar Republic, ftw.)
well written, with an interesting twist on Luna's postion in royalty, as well as PInkie's own.... uh... "Pinkie-ness."
Stand and Deliver, my good chum. Five-starred and two hooves up.

(i dont speak spanish, so i can only hope i said that right.)


Certainly interesting. *Keeps reading*

Okay, I have to admit, this is good! I look forward to the next chapter!

Mass author reply time? Mass author reply time.


Oh, there will be madness. I was actually considering adding a [Dark] tag for just that reason, but ended up deciding against it. This is going to be more like "Party of One" or "Lesson Zero" than "Cupcakes," as far as the insanity level goes. I was considering adding a [Comedy] tag, too, but I suppose that and [Dark] sort of cancel each other out.


Crack pairing is my middle name. Twinkie Crack Pairing Spy. :rainbowdetermined2:
But I am glad you like it. :twilightsmile:

@Magical Trevor

Every time I see someone "have to admit" that they like one of my stories, it makes me really happy because it implies that you were dubious about the concept and I changed your mind, haha. :rainbowkiss: So thanks for that.

I don't have any issues with it so far. It was kind of funny.:pinkiehappy:

Im interested to see where you'll go with this.

Best Rpg Party EVER!~!:pinkiehappy:


Thanks for another chapter! I'm not... entirely sure I care COMPLETELY for how this Luna is portraited, but I'ma gonna keep reading anyways! XD

~ Moonstone, Minstrel of Equestria


Yeah, Luna has received more characterization now than she did last season, but with only one episode under her belt, there's still a lot of guessing and fabrication that goes into making her the main character of a fic, so I can see how some might not like the way I characterize her. Thanks for hanging on anyways! :twilightsmile:

Luna and Pinkie Pie going on a grand adventure together? Yes please! :pinkiehappy: This looking to be a very amusing read, can't wait for more.:rainbowkiss:

And so their journey begins. I wonder what kind of hijinks these two will be getting into.:trixieshiftright:
Another chapter well done.

The horse apples get real this chapter. :rainbowdetermined2:

I'm sorry about the wait, but hopefully PLOT ADVANCEMENT will make it worth it. I also went ahead and added the [Dark] tag because, while the story itself isn't going to get particularly grimdark, some of the subject matter is dark nonetheless.

i was half expecting pinkie pie to drop into luna's "nightmare" and start calling the actual nightmare names again :pinkiehappy:

take that black snooty!

Pinkie Pie/Luna romace would be sweet.

I'm really digging this story. The pacing is quite good, letting things unfold slowly but not too slowly. And while I hadn't ever really thought of how Luna and Pinkie's interactions would work (besides being humorous, 'cause Pinkie), they just make so much SENSE in this story thus far. They're both damaged, in some similar ways, and I'm really excited to read where their adventures take them.

Props to Donny for letting me in on this one. I'm excited to see where this goes and whether Pinkie dug this whole or something else....


Pinkamena versus Nightmare Moon. Snide versus snooty. You know you want to make it happen, and I hope you do.

In any case, I look forward to the antics of the four minds in these two bodies.

Glad to see this update! I thought this pairing was a good concept and this chapter shows some of the reason why. Honest appreciation, simplifying away all the complicated claptrap that Luna has overburdened herself with. Ought to do her good.

Surprised to see Trixie brought into the mix. Not sure if she will be there long term or not, but certainly entertaining!
:trixieshiftright: :pinkiehappy:

Yes. Yes, she should have.

Yesss, oblivious Trixie. I approve :twilightsmile:
Glad to see this back, I wanna know what happens!

Trixie! I was not expecting that! Good times. :pinkiehappy:

I think my favorite part of the chapter was the moment where Pinkie's appreciating Luna's starry night sky. That's a lovely moment--Pinkie is so open, and Luna seems so fragile, so grateful. Then Luna drops her defenses a bit to share the story about creating the moon and, a bit later, even feels protective towards Pinkie. That was a great, great scene.

My single favorite line from this chapter, though, was probably: "Pinkie's smile disappeared; angry Luna didn't faze her in the slightest, but fearful Luna tied her stomach in knots." There's some fantastic insight into both Pinkie and Luna, as well as their relationship to one another, expressed in just a single sentence.

Trixie and Luna always make for an appealing combination. No other pair of herbivores contains so much ham. Also, watching Her Lunar Highness try to puzzle out the combination of whimsy and wisdom that is Pinkie Pie is always entertaining. I look forward to the shenanigans bound to ensue from the six or more minds among these four ponies.

Hmm. Well, the title suggests that the duality of Luna's and Pinkie's mental states (Nightmare Moon and Pinkamena) will come into play, which isn't exactly something that I've read before. I'll keep an eye on this....

See? I told you I was updating! I told you all! :pinkiecrazy:

...But I am very tired right now, and there are probably typos present in the latest chapter. I'll come back for another edit tomorrow.

Don't you mean that the end is

Seriously though, I do apologize about the time it's taken for me to release the last chapter. I had exams and whatnot to worry about all last month, but now I'm home free, so I promise that chapter six will arrive a lot more quickly.

Just to be sure. You do know that agoraphobia is the fear of large empty spaces, right?

605197 you mean chapter 7? Can I get an ETA please? This story is cool. =3

Agoraphobia is a bit confusing because it has a lot of definitions, but they usually coincide in someone who is agoraphobic. Generally, it is a fear of situations that are difficult to escape from, which is why the fear of wide open spaces is one of the more common incarnations. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. I see Luna as being the type who fears both crowds and wide/empty spaces, because of her time on the moon. (Though in this story, she was agoraphobic already; it was just magnified by those thousand years of being alone in a large, empty landscape.)
Also, I'd say the next chapter should be out... sometime next week. Thursday, maybe?

Nice chatper Twinkie Spy ( lol funny user name :pinkiehappy:) I am so traking this.

Three cheers for updating! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

Wait, weren't they going to Peasantville first?
Eh, whatever- seeing the update kinda negates the little bit I could still somehow find wrong with it (and I'm probably wrong about it being wrong, too, so there's that).

I didn't forget about that; don't worry. Trixie's going to point that out in the next chapter. :trixieshiftright:

More apologies for the wait! But Bot4oU has updated again, and this chapter is... well, it's basically exposition, honestly, but there's some plot and character development in there, too! I had a hell of a time figuring out how to reveal Marem's true nature to the reader without being too vague and/or info-dumpy, and... well, I'm not entirely satisfied with how it turned out, but I think it's... decent?

Anywho, here it is.

I thought the reveal was pretty good, can't wait for the next chapter also

That reveal. And I can't believe you ended it there! Arrgh that's gonna drive me crazy until you update this. In a good way, though. :derpytongue2:

Haha, sorry! I'll try to write faster this time around. :twilightblush:

With every chapter Pinkie and Luna seem less like themselves.... and Trixie openly antagonizing Luna? :twilightoops:

Oh well.... looking forward to seeing what you can do with it.

...if Cupcakes!Pinkie shows up I'm out. I did not sign on for that.

...so...are the stars really suns in this world, as you initially described them, or are they just glorified christmas lights Luna hung up there?

Either way, the final scene is enough to earn this fic my deal of approval. ...well, almost.
