  1. Those three tags always make for… interesting stories.

  2. Okay, wow. That was a trip, and no mistake. One of the most deserving stories for the "Random" tag I have ever read.

  3. My mind couldn't take it."The flesh was willing, but the spirit was weak."

  4. Qaxis says:

    This was so deliciously random and awesome. Really helped that it was Twinkie Pie shipping too. Thats always great.

  5. Volk says:

    I can think of few better way to retire to bed that reading something as ridiculously amazing as this story. Tomorrow I feel I should delve into the random tag a bit more… may Luna have mercy on my mind.Also, great story. The hollow leg bit had my in stitches.

  6. Good stuff. Trippy, and quite believable for Pinkie Pie's mindscape.I'd love to hear the actual song that was being played, though. 😀

  7. poopnate says:

    …What just happened and why do I feel like it somehow made sence just because Pinkie was involved?

  8. shibboleth says:

    Someone needs to make a Psychonauts crossover now with all the ponies going to psychic summer camp. Twilight can be Raz with the rest of the cast being filled with all the others. Whichever one takes the role of Lili whould be shipped with Twilight, of course.

    So I finally broke down and decided to read a shipping fic and WHAT THE HELL>I completely lost it at "It tasted like grapes!"

  11. Whiteout says:

    I think the best part of this is Pinkie manipulating the sheer madness of her own subconscious without even trying.Truly, Pink Pony Is Best Pony.

    That was delightfully weird and unsettling.

    Stupid Sexy Pinkie…..

  15. A fanfiction that I actually saw elsewhere before looking here? I'm proud.

  16. Sinez says:

    Eeyup. I am now SURE that Shipping, Comedy, and Random are my FAVORITE TAGS *EVER*. End of story. good day sir.

  17. I'm glad that everybody's enjoying it so much! Now I just have to hope that my next few efforts can live up to expectations, despite them not being quite so… out there.There is a YouTube video of the song being performed live at Furry Fiesta in 2009. Not the easiest to hear everything, but….

  18. @AnonymousI don't suppose I might be able to get some clarification on what you thought I missed the mark on? Always looking to improve. :)Also, here's that link in a way that actually clicks through!Five Minutes by Sub-Level 03

  20. Thanks for the comedy story Seth!

  21. magnets how they work? Interesting story, pinkie pie didn't seem crazy enough, but that's just my take on her. Well written, and interesting idea, so keep up the good work.

  22. Ten Mihara says:

    With Tangerine Trees, and Marmalade skies…

  23. TenchiFreak5 says:

    Spike's reaction when he found out what Twilight was planning was perfect by itself, but the fact that it kept coming back up made me lose it.

  24. DOOOOOMED! Oh Spike… lolI don't get into shipping much, but this was pretty darn good. Twilight is now grape candy.

    Lucky she didn't go deep enough to find Pinkamena Diane Pie. (shudders)

  26. The J.A.M. says:

    Yeah, I was hoping Twilight would find Pinkamena.Maybe that's the bit you missed.

  27. Drakengarde says:

    “A gateway to places beyond time and space that’ll unleash overly amorous tentacle-y beasties on all of Ponyville? Oh, that’d be the best!”“Pin- What?!?” Twilight asked, turning to look at her bouncing friend, who had somehow found the time to dress up in a white blouse, blue skirt, and matching scarf while she wasn’t looking. “Pinkie, stop doing that!”“Gomen,” Pinkie pouted.I spat my drink out at that, I was laughing so hard. I wasn't expecting that at all.

  28. Popcorn says:

    Random and fluffy and awesome. I love the statue of Pinkie and the magnet.

  29. Hio590 says:

    Pinkie is best pony. Me gusta

  30. Ah, yes, as I've stated before, good stuff! I had a blast reading it.

  31. tinwhistle says:

    SUB LEVEL 3."Five minutes" is a song title reference to sublevel 03.Just want to say that I caught it, as soon as I saw the lyrics….who the hell listens to sub level 03, though?

  32. Anonymous says:

    Poor Twilight, she will never be the same again.

  33. Silverspot says:

    Wow. I never expected to see a MLP fic inspired by a Sub-Level 03 song! I'm still reading it, no rating yet, but you do win 20 Internets for referencing SL03. 😀

  34. Silverspot says:

    OK, that was highly entertaining, and the imagery fit with the lyrics very well. (Did I mention this is one of my favorite songs? <3)TwiPie isn't one of my usual ships, but it worked very well here! (Frankly, I can see 'friends with benefits' being the typical extent of Pinkie's relationships; she seems the type who would party with anypony. ^^) All my stars, you have them.

  35. Cuddle Barn. I think that's all I need to know. I wondered about the inclusion of Vinyl Scratch, that seems completely out of nowhere, so I'm glad there was at least a late explanation.Quantum cupcakes! Someone needs to make this happen. You write crazy fourth-wall-breaking Pinkie spookily well. I'm absolutely astonished at this story's free flow despite the chaotic and utterly surreal events occuring in the dream sequence. I think even if I wasn't enjoying this, I'd have to give it 5 stars for craft alone!This was really cute as hell. I think it's the first TwiPie fic I've ever read, and it worked out really great in the end. Like I said, kind of blown away by the writing on top of that.

  36. @ItsTheWhinyGuysAnd thanks very much for your advice! :)I did try to tone Twilight down a smidge in the beginning; seems I'm the only person who sees her going full mad scientist. 😉

  37. tinwhistle says:

    Dude. Proper name for the ship is obviously "Twinkie" or "Twinkie Pie".Better than "Pielight Sparkle."

  38. Cloudy Skies says:

    While I usually tend towards more involved, longer fics, this was exactly as long as it needed to be to do what it meant to do.As for what that WAS? Pinkie Pie. That's the full answer.No seriously though, lovely little nibble-fic!

    Spoiler! Beware!This was great! just… holy crap that was funny. I'm always very weary of "shipping". in fact, this is the first one I've read, but it wasn't the creepy thing I'd thought it would be! Twi is my fav character, Pinkie a debatable tie for second, and you nailed the characters! (made me go re-watch fav episode 15)However, someone explain this to me: “A gateway to places beyond time and space that’ll unleash overly amorous tentacle-y beasties on all of Ponyville? Oh, that’d be the best!”“Pin- What?!?” Twilight asked, turning to look at her bouncing friend, who had somehow found the time to dress up in a white blouse, blue skirt, and matching scarf while she wasn’t looking. “Pinkie, stop doing that!”“Gomen,” Pinkie pouted.Whaaaat?

  41. So this story was so delightfully funny and random I can't wait for more! Keep up the good work! I lost it at,"First we need to jump out the window!" "Wait what?" I could just IMAGINE Twilight's expression when saying that lol.

  42. Silverspot says:

    @AnonymousIt's a reference to Japanese hentai ("pervert") anime. They typically feature demonic creatures that have large numbers of tentacles which they use in an… overly-amorous fashion (to use Pinkie's terms) on Japanese schoolgirls. The outfit Pinkie is wearing here is a Japanese high school girl's uniform. And "Gomen" is Japanese for "Sorry."

  43. “A gateway to places beyond time and space that’ll unleash overly amorous tentacle-y beasties on all of Ponyville? Oh, that’d be the best!”PFFFFHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

  44. @SilverspotGot it in one!And the outfit is supposed to be the pony equivalent of the stereotypical Japanese schoolgirl uniform.
