Greetings World. You may call me Nyronus. I write stories, among other things. My hobbies include existential ennui, being Princess Luna, and Saving the World. Feel free to hit me up on Steam to chat!


Cheese Sandwich wants to get Pinkie Pie a truly special gift for Hearth's Warming. The problem? Pinkie Pie loves every gift given to her, no matter what it is. So what's a premier party pony to do? Get some help, of course.

And there is only one expert in Equestria on giving Pinkie Pie the best gifts: Maud Pie.

Together they will endure glitter bombs, sound advice, stand-up comedy, musical numbers, chaos, and fondue, all to give Pinkie Pie the best Hearth's Warming ever.

Special thanks to SoloBrony who helped me come up with ideas for this story, and to FanofMostEverything, Skeeter the Lurker, and Wanderer D for prereading.

This was written for Tethered Angel as a part of Jinglemas 2020!

This is so beautiful:raritystarry:

I enjoyed this a lot! Discord's dialogue stuck out to me in particular, I thought it sounded extremely fitting for him.

“But it’s hard because the girl gets more excited than a filly with her first foal when somepony gives her a cupcake?”

I love that this is the expression Applejack uses for, like, peak happy.

Accurately capturing the gift-doubt death-spiral, though the solution isn't one I ever had to resort to myself.

This is like, maximum funny and cute. You got Sunburst's name wrong, but other than that it's basically perfect. Feels like an episode of the show, almost.

Ahaha, that was just great! I loved every moment of it. I could really see it being an actual episode too :pinkiehappy:

“That only happens when it’s funny.”

“It’s always funny, though!” Cheese collapsed in a heap of suitably dramatic crying.

Thus bit really got me good XD and tge reveal right after. Plus I really loved all the advice they got from the others, especially Discord. You did such a great job with the characters and the idea. Thank you


I'm really glad you liked it. I realized early on this idea kind of stretched the letter of your request a bit, but I hope I stuck to the spirit of it and I'm glad to hear that you really enjoyed what I did with it overall. I put a lot of love into this story, so, it's worth it to know it all paid off for you.


Thanks for the catch! I corrected it.

Very nice. :)

Thank you for writing, and happy appropriate holidays!

I am more than happy with it :pinkiegasp:

I can't say "this is exactly what I was thinking," because it is far and above what I was expecting. I chose a pair of characters I like, but never really wrote, because I was hoping to get someone to to something better than what I would come up with for them, and you knocked it outta the park.

You know, I kept grabbing quotes to comment about with the intent to say "This is just so perfect for that character." After about the sixth one I realized I should just sum it up.

This is some wonderful work and the characters are perfectly spot-on. Excellently written!

Aight this has got to be the best fic I've read in the past few months or so. It's perfectly written, cute, every character is in character, the humor is spot on and the style feels like an actual episode of the show, plus it's about my favorite-est ship ever in the history of ever.
I want a QR code of this fic tattooed on my forhead or something.

I need an animation of this.

Very sweet story. I particularly liked the song.


I'm glad. I was never 100% confident including it, and it certainly felt a bit overkill give my general stress levels when writing, but I cannot think of a better way to cap off those two getting engaged.
