I hate talking about myself. I always either feel like I'm being too modest or I'm bragging. There's no way to win!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Maybe a lot of ponies don't think too much about it, but it's no doubt a meaningful part of the day for some. Let us go on a journey into the minds of these good friends of ours and see just what they think about when they start the day.

Amusing read. It was very well done in that you kept the focus on the toast rather than Twilight.

As a creative suggestion, you could start a Slice of Life series about each of the MLP:FiM characters and their particular breakfast favourites and its meaning to them (e.g.: Rarity & bagels, Spike & omelettes, AppleJack & flapjacks, Rainbow Dash & hash browns, Princess Celestia & belgian waffles, etc.).

Damn, now I am hungry for something breakfast-y at 0100... :rainbowwild:

Not a bad suggestion...
I'll not be getting sleep tonight, now that I have so many breakfast options to consider.

2115669...

I suggest bagels, cream cheese, & lox; and a tall glass of apple juice/cider :raritywink: .

(Gods I crave something breakfast-y now...)

But I am always glad to provide inspiration :) .

That was wonderful. Simple, introspective, and interesting. Nice job on a first story. Your story, like the toast in it, does not aspire to be more than a simple tale, but in its simplicity, it comes off as something more than that.

Have a :yay: or two. :yay::yay:

Edit. It made me want toast. Thanks for exciting my taste buds with an imaginary breakfast.

Only Twilight Sparkle would put so much thought into a piece of toast. :rainbowwild:

A toast to you, my good writer! Okay, I'll hit myself for that one. *smeck* :fluttershyouch: Anyway, excellent work. :twilightsmile:

I've been meaning to read this for a while, and just haven't found the time till now.

It was great. I saw no real flaws, other than a lack of conflict, but that's okay considering it's a slice-of-toast... err... Slice-of-life story. That's the beauty of slice-of-life. You really don't need a conflict to make a great story. I very much enjoyed this story, and I'll be stalking you to see what more you come up with. Oh. And have a moustache for the great story. :moustache:

Your comment made me realize that I should come up with more stuff... I've had ideas for other potential chapters of this story detailing the morning routines of various other ponies, but to think up something that's NOT breakfast related? I'm not sure if I have the grist. I'll try my very hardest, though! 'Preciate the the feedback, as well as the powerful insight as to the true nature of slice of life stories and their mysterious, non-conflicted ways. I accept the moustache with gusto! If I had a magnificent beard, I would gladly bestow it unto you.

Well. Slice of life CAN have conflict, but doesn't NEED it. :3

No need to give me a beard. I prefer my stubble.

You win.

I like this. I like this a lot.

Who's next on the breakfast tour?

I'm thinking Pinkie. I was actually going to do the toast chapter using her, as the blandness and under-bearing nature of toast would be in stark contrast to the desserts she usually eats. I ended up picking Twilight because I wasn't sure if I could really do Pinkie justice in a story where the characters are so introspective. I could have picked a different snack that better matched Pinkie's personality, but I'm Toastman, and not writing about toast just isn't my style. I kind of want to give it a second try, although I'll have to come up with a different breakfast food. I might have to do another one before her, though. I really want to get her right, because Pinkie is best pony.:pinkiehappy:

Bran Cereal for Pinkie. Just to throw us for a loop. You know, to show she doesn't always eat sugar and such.

~Skeeter The Lurker

That filled my brain with more ideas than it probably should have...

I enjoy this idea.

2404425

HAHAH! Nice to hear that!

By all means... Run with it, if you so chose to... It is why I suggested it.

~Skeeter The Lurker

For Twilight and Applejack, it was the part of their day that satisfied them most. The delicious few minutes where they pondered things otherwise removed from there minds. This small part of their day, enjoying the simplest things is sacred.

But to me, it was just Tuesday. Or Wednesday. Or any other day...

:twilightoops::ajbemused:

:pinkiehappy:

Sounds about right.

How. How do you make something as boring as breakfast interesting? Where does your talent come from? I bet that if you were a pony, at least one part of your cutie mark would be a pen or quill or ink well. just to show your writing skills.

OH MY GOD.

You did it. You actually did it. You GLORIOUS fucking bastard!

This right here made my day, bar none. Thank you. Just... Thank you.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Pinkie... What...?
Ouch.

I may not like Pinkie much, but the story was again, near perfect. She used to live on a rock farm. Not quarry. There's a difference.

Random 6am (I should be sleeping now) thought:

Rainbow Dash is everything Rarity is not.

Therefore, RD's guilty pleasure is crepes.

Rarity, however, enjoys a kid's cereal.

I need sleep.

Also... I'm guessing Derpy is next. Just a hunch.

~Skeeter The Lurker

It will be fixed post haste!

Muffin Room... I can see it now... DERPY YOU GENIUS!!! :derpytongue2:

Flawless. Well done.

<3 DarqFox

WHY CAN'T I FAVE THIS MOAR?!

Heh. Not bad.

I hope the break does you good.

"...contained within a single slice of toast."
who the hell only eats one slice? two slices at least

An interesting set of ideas, to say the least - especially the first chapter (slice of life, forsooth!) - I wish I had seen this when it first came out.

But vacuum sealed cells with steam vents? Not sure how that would work - the moment you use the steam vent it would no longer be vacuum sealed...

Don't question pony magic.

Derpy is a pegasus. And pegasi are masters of wind and water.

She probably has a sub-cell underneath, running on inate pegasi weather magic which infuses each cell with heated rainclouds, aka steam.
