Derp derp well spotted! Sorry!

That was Spike, Spike has hands! :moustache:

I have to say the ending was kind of a bit weak. I think Pinkie went a little TOO far with the prank and I kept thinking Twilight was going to commit suicide rather than face "Celestia." In fact the ending kind of leaves a cliffhanger as to what happens. Either Twilight runs away when Spike accidentally falls asleep, Twilight kills herself in shame, or Spike get Twilight home. Not a bad fic, but the ending kind of ruined it for me.

Where did you get the idea that Twilight killing herself was even an option? :twilightoops::twilightoops::twilightoops:

99117 We all know how Twilight acts when she shames herself in front of Princess Celestia, and this may've really devastated her to the point where she kills herself in shame for doing such an act.


Okay I took the time read it and for the record I'm suprised the entire Apple family isn't out for Twilight because of what she did

LOL :rainbowlaugh: that was a good story Blueshift. Twilight took things to far but Pinkie's prank was pure awsome :pinkiehappy: and then with Spike given his own prank to Twilight was genius.

I nearly cried when Twilight did the eclipse, because Luna is my favorite pony. Twilight is so mean.

Judging from the Mayor's reaction...I think Pinkie Pie was going to be the winner no matter what. This was amazing I never saw the end coming at all! I thought Celestia and Luna were real, and I loved Spike's prank. How did Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie make perfect, life - like costumes? So, what was the unspeakable prank from three years before that Pinkie Pie did? How come Discord didn't prank anyone?..I think this would be his favorite holiday. This was amazing and I loved it! You did a great job. That was so mean to Applebloom, but I think she will get an Apple cutie mark.:heart::pinkiehappy::rainbowlaugh::

Also, I realized that the title is a line from the Star - Spangled banner! :pinkiehappy::heart::scootangel:

Story gets lulz :rainbowlaugh:

I wish we could know what Pinkie Pie did the year before that...

Ending with spike being a boss :moustache:

I suspect we do not want to know. Remember, this is Reality Warper Pinkie Pie, clearly going too far to the point no-pony wants to remember it. It probably required Celestia intervention, and months of counseling for them to cope with. Discord would probably have been left slack jawed by it.

I want to know what Pinkie a few years before. But now that I think about I don't.:pinkiecrazy:

you misspelled "mayor" as "Major" after twilight teleports away. other than that
poor apple bloom!! :applecry::applecry::applecry: that was terrible! stupid twi. she deserves those long, spiky pikes.
great story tho :pinkiehappy:


Good catch, thanks! You know, I've read that so many times and never noticed that!

That it all.

This needs to become an episode.

Pinkie!:pinkiehappy: What you do three years ago?

:trollestia:=:pinkiehappy: THE WHOLE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
seriously, you managed to make me actually laugh so hard I almost fell out of my chair, then again when it turned out to be Pinkie Pie

Oh, that's who you are. You're the guy who makes awesome, hilarious oneshots that are so funny/amazing that I can ignore my hatred of oneshots.

I fell off the chair laughing at the end. 'Twas priceless!

And when Pinkie Pie was walking around all morning it was actually Celestia in a costume! :0 Wow, that's genius!

Hyeack hyeack hyeack!


Shenanigans, shenanigans everywhere...Pinkie and Dash are the best pranksters out there. Great ending to a pretty funny story. I look forward to reading more from you in the future. Keep up the great writing!

Twilight, ur bad.

Huh, and here I thought it would turn out like the april fool's episode of spongebob, but then THIS happened:rainbowlaugh:

Bravo sir, bravo:trollestia:

That was hilarious :rainbowlaugh: at first I thought it WAS going to be that pinkie pulled no prank at all but wow... Nice use of Pinkie's creepily realistic costumes! Also, imagining Twilight's final prank... :rainbowlaugh:

This was funny. Have a like and fav.

1249422 I'm pretty sure that was just Pinkie.


"AAAAAH!" she squealed in shock and delight, craning her neck around to look at her rump. Where her flank was once blank, there was the perfect image of an apple. Her little eyes opened in unmitigated joy; all thoughts of trickery fled her mind as she galloped off. "APPLEJACK, APPLEJACK, AH GOT MAH CUTIE MARK!" she cried, happy tears rolling down her face as she raced to find her big sister.

This should have got Twilight the prize.

Also! I firmly believe that it should have been the real Princesses! That would have made this hilarious! As it is, it's just sad...
