Chapter 14- Our Worst Fears

"What is your worst fear?" Pinkie asked out loud to her colleagues.

"And why would you ask a question like that, Miss Element of Laughter?" Autumn Blaze asked, sounding a bit concerned.

"I just wanted to start on our next topic," Pinkie casually replied.

"Well, I have a fear of...Balloons," Gabby shivered. Pinkie looked her her with confusion and horror.

"Why balloons of all things?!" Pinkie asked horrified, "Balloons are like the best thing ever! They are super rubbery, floating things of fun and when they pop-"

"Yes, that!" Gabby shouted, "You ponies and kirins may have soft hooves, but sharp talons to hold one of those things is a nightmare! When they burst in your face at a single touch or point of my talons!" She shivered again at that.

"Well, don't be such a Globophobe." Pinkie hugged comfortably. Everyone just looked at her with confused expressions.
"Globophobe?" Autumn Blaze asked.

"Some creature who has the fear of balloons," Pinkie Pie quipped, "I got it from a book about a list of phobias from Twilight's castle library! It's fun to say! Globophobia! Globophobia! Globophobia!"

Back at the library, Twilight turned to the library impressed.
"Let me guess," She sighed, "It was under 'G'. This is like when I was looking for the Elements of Harmony Reference Guide."

"Believe me, I know a few ponies with some strange phobias! Did you know Twilight's a Coccinellidaephobe?" Pinkie chirped. Once again every creature made blank expressions.

"Fear of ladybirds," Pinkie rolled her eyes. Every creature made a noise of understanding.

"That would explain why Twilight freaked out when Fluttershy brought them over to teach us about responsibility," Silverstream pondered.

"She's also has a fear of quesadillas! Spike was lucky that he didn't bring my quesadillas when he asked for a quill," Pinkie laughed.

"Let me guess, it's called Quesadillaphobia!" Silverstream giggled.

"And you are right!" Pinkie congratulated Silverstream.

"Wait? I am?" Silverstream asked in surprise.

"Stop talking, stop talking, stop talking!" Twilight yelled down the radio.

"May I present the Princess of Friendship, Twilight Sparkle," Spike chuckled, "Who is afraid of ladybirds and quesadillas."

"Spike!" Twilight slowly warned.

"I think I let the stove on," Spike quickly said as he hurried out of the castle's library.

"I have a somewhat common fear," Autumn explained, "It's called Autophobia, the fear of being alone. When in exile with nothing but my own voice for company, it was nerve-wracking. I had to leave my favourite couch behind! I even named my own shadow! Say hello to Silhouette Gloom of the Sundown Lands!"
Everyone looked down at the shadow on the floor, casted by the studio lights. Autumn made the shadow give a wave.

"Well I may also have that fear of being alone as well. I thought my friends didn't like my parties anymore, so I made some new friends with a pile of dust, a bucket of turnips, a bad of flower and a tower of rocks." Pinkie was then in a fit of crazy laughter. her eyes began to turn either direction and her mane began to straighten. Marble dreaded this moment.
"Would you like some tea, Madame de Flour? You look wonderful today Mr. Turnips. That bowtie really suits you Sir Flint-A-Lot. You too Dusty..."

Her colleagues looked at her like a mad-pony. Mainly because she already was one.

"Marble, is this normal for her?" Gabby asked to her sister. Marble just turned away.

"Well my fear was the Storm King. It was my test given by the Tree of Harmony, but Gallus helped me conquer my fear that he will never return!"

"Your friend eh?" Gabby wiggled her eyebrows.

"Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" Silverstream huffed with a red blush on her face.

"Well," Pinkie gave a manic laugh, "That's all this morning folks! And remember, no parties and no friends makes Pinkie a something, something pony," Pinkie left the others to guess that word.

"Do you mean crazy?" Silverstream asked unsure.

"Don't mind if I do! Hopefully you will survive the break commercial..."
