Chapter 5

-ee, Twilight? I was right! The light does not lie!

Okay, okay, Pinkie, you were right. Just - oh, this is going to come back to bite me later, isn't it...

'Fraid so, sugarcube.

I-I won't bring it up if you don't want me to...

Nor I, Twilight! I was brought up to believe that one never has a good reason for teasing their friends!

Okay...um, fine. Whatever. Anyways-

I was right and you were wrong! You see? I'm not just crazy, logic defying Pinkie Pie after all. I'm smart-

Pinkie Pie! How rude of you!

Oh, come on, Rarity. It's not like you've never made fun of a friend for something! And besides, it's not like I'm being mean to her or anything.

I'm, um, sorry for being so mean that one time...


Fluttershy, you've nothing to apologize for. Everypony makes mistakes and everypony can make up for them. And you've already made up for yours by being our friend.

I agree! Fluttershy, you've been nothing but a faithful companion to us for a long, long time-

Hey! I think we should do something to celebrate Fluttershy's non-meanie-mcmeanie-pants-ness! Let's have a par-





...I'm, um, sorry-

Fluttershy...it's fine. Really. Now that everything's in order, let's just get down to business.

So...who's watching this? Do we even know? I want to make sure I address them in the right-

Good morning! Good evening! Good afternoon! My name is Pinkie Pie! My other friends that are here are Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Applejack! Read me in pink! Read my friends in purple, yellow, gray, and orange, in that order.

R...read...but that...

Don't worry about it, Twilight. Inside joke.

With the pony that's listening to - okay, fine. Just fine.

Anyways, you've already heard Pinkie, so I guess you know who we are. We're all friends of Rainbow Dash, who works here at Aperture Science Laboratories. This is actually her computer and webcam we're using, so I hope she doesn't get mad...Anyways, Aperture Science is-

Hey, Twi? Could you just skip this bit? Ah think they know that already.

Um...eheh. I guess so.

Anyways, we've already looked through Rainbow's previous recording, and I'll assume you've listened to it and know of the tragedy that has occurred here. Because of Rainbow's involvement in the creation of the hurricane, we feared that she would think herself to be the cause of the grief and misery that has accompanied Aperture these past five days. We have come here to-

Throw a party!


...Hee hee hee...sorry, Twilight. Carry on.

As I was saying, we're here to ensure that she doesn't hold these thoughts in her mind. Although, judging from the last recording, she already has...

Oh, I do hope we can change her mind...

...And that's why we're here. Thank you, Rarity.

...My apologies...

Well...that's it. We're here to cheer Rainbow up and help her to feel better about the whole situation. Honestly, we would've come no matter her involvement just to check up and see how she was. But since she was involved with the storm, we want to ensure that we leave her not blaming herself.

And hooooooooow are we going to do that, Twilight?

...We're going to throw Rainbow Dash-



Oh! Oops! Um, sorry, Twilight. I just get really excited about parties, and you were going to say it, and I just...

...No, it's fine Pinkie. I probably need to loosen up a bit anyways.

Well, don't put all of the blame on yourself. You had to lock me in the basement for two days because I couldn't control my urges to write to Dashie and spoil the party!

Not an easy task, I assure you.

That mare's tougher to tie up than a herd 'a' rabid timber wolves.

Um...I-I hope you're not still hurt from that...are you...?...O-oh dear, I'm so sorry-

Aaaaanyways, yeah, we're going to throw Rainbow a party! Hopefully this will lift her spirits and show her that we do care about her and would never think any less of her for anything she would do at Aperture Science-


Pinkie, what? I've been lenient, but if you keep interrupting me, than-

Twilight, shh! I think she's coming back!


Holy horse feathers, she's right! Everyone hide! Turn off the lights!

I-I got the lights...

And make sure we yell surprise in unison! It's got to be like that or else it won't work!

Rarity! We've got it! Now get ready! Here she comes!


...Geez, it's really dark in here...huh?

Well, why in the hoof is the light on this thing still on?

Lemme just...
