    Oops! The link is broken (there's a link to Blogger home and a space in the beginning); more importantly, the document's permissions aren't set to allow viewing (after I stripped off the bad part of the link).

  2. Sethisto says:

    I love that stupid bug.I fixed the blogger thing, and it's loading for me. try now.

  3. Fairy Slayer says:

    @SethistoEven after a full refresh it still gives me the error:You need permission to access this item.and the request button (which I've hit to be safe :)). The same problem also exists on the second installment of "Dash's Confusion" both link and access — The first part (the Google Docs link) works just fine.

  4. Sethisto says:

    @Fairy Slayerthis dude has uploaded it like 5 times with that error, I'm not sure what is up with this one. It loads for me, but I think he gave me permission when I requested it.

  5. Sethisto says:

    It's also set to anyone with a link, so I am clueless. docs bugs

  6. darkdeity5 says:

    It's saying I need permission.

  7. LawnPygmy says:

    …blog keeps eating my posts, Googledocs won't let me upload or download or share… Is it too much to ask, Internet, that you let me share one fic? One tiny fic?New Link: Hope it works.

    @AnonymousIt was his private link ;pI went to his DA and got the public oneholy monkeys your bad at links lawnpygmy!

    i know .__.Hopefully this'll be so much easier the next time.

  11. Pacce says:

    I love the idea that Twilight is still such a kid at heart.

  12. Pacce says:

    Oh Rarity, you sick little monkey.Er, pony.

  13. Holy crap, how did I miss these two? They're fantastic! Very well written, and you got Rarity spot on. WRITE MORE OF THEM

  14. LawnPygmy says:

    I have a plan in the works for more! Up next is Fluttershy's.

    these are so adorable. I just grin and giggle like an idiot the whole time.

    Whoah, nice! Fluttershy's being cute, even if there's a little bit of darkness there. Can't be easy being a scaredy-cat pegasus pony…

  19. Sethisto says:

    I think the fluttershy one is my favorite so far. I like how detailed the cave was. Good job!

  20. As if Fluttershy wasn't adorable enough already! Best one so far, keep it up!

  21. LawnPygmy says:

    D'awww, thanks you guys~Next up is Pinkie Pie!

  22. Dragonkind says:

    these were awesome!what a tweeest!

    Oh Pinkie Pie, you're *so* random. 😛

  24. Anonymous says:

    Hahaha, love how the beginning of Pinkie's felt like a "Cupcakes" clone.So, is it Dash or AJ next?

  25. Sind says:

    I loved the ending in this one =3Still, so far Fluttershy holds the crown =P

  26. Anonymous says:

    Oh, god… I don't even want to start reading Pinkie's. Right after you post Cupcakes, I really need some assurance that this isn't terrifying.

  27. I just realized I can't keep giving this post 5 stars every time a new one's posted…20/5, thus far!

  28. LawnPygmy says:

    @AnonymousJust keep reading, Anonymous!Thank you all for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed them. It really makes me feel awesome to hear that something I write is bringing smiles to people's faces. Sappy, probably, but true. These are for you guys!Coming Next: Spike!

  29. Zarkanorf says:

    @AnonymousPinkiezilla. Therefore, it's not terrifying; it just looks as such from the description. 😀

    God. DAMN.Never before has a fanfic been able to jerk around my emotions so much.I salute you, good sir, and I eagerly await more.

    Well, the Rainbow Dash one certainly feels like a departure from the tone of the series.Not saying that's a bad thing, though. It was very well written…just not what I expected!

  32. Daaang. That new one with Dash really pulled some heart strings. And I loved every sentence! Keep up the awesome work!

  33. Anonymous says:

    this was more secret than tub or fun. i like fun, why cant dash have fun too?

  34. Sethisto says:

    It continues to be awesome.

  35. nukeiffum says:

    Did not expect Rainbow Dash./salutes

  36. I already commented on DA, but what the hey, it can't be said enough. You did well! (And with well I mean FANTABULOUSLY!)They were all true to the characters as well as managing to get out a believable other side to them. I also noticed that the fics pretty much got… Well, not "darker" per se, but at least more "mature" as they went. Was that intentional, or just a stroke of luck?In any case, bravo to you, dear write-friend, bravo to you ^_^

  37. Anonymous says:

    I personally love this series, It started (And well IS) a lighthearted fic about bathing, but you also give some depth into the possible backstory of the characters (Fluttershy and Rainbowdash)or make them bloody hilarious (Pinkie)Bravo to you fic writer! You rock

  38. Zarkanorf says:

    "Classified Hygiene Entertainment" has been a series I've absolutely loved and–oh my god, I just realized "tub" is "but" backwards.

  39. LawnPygmy says:

    @EveryoneThank you all so much for reading. 😀 I'll do my best to continue to deliver for you!@SonicBrawler1992There was supposed to be a cycle, and Rainbow was going to be toward the later half, but she decided to be impatient and cut in line. So it ended up being a stretch with fewer silly bits. I'm definitely going to bring the silly back, and end the series on a lighter note than some of the ones in it.@Zarkanorf:3c

  40. "Angel, these are perfect!" And they are! Thank you, author 🙂 I'm saving the Rainbow Dash one for tomorrow, but I'll give you your 5 stars in advance@You know who you areYou made me go and read Cupcakes… just saying

  41. Mario says:

    This is great stuff. I want more.

  42. Zarkanorf says:

    I believe Spike's part is arguably the best one thus far. A watered down "noir" narrative as if it was the Prohibition Era caught me off guard, but I loved it all the same!

  43. 9Nine9 says:

    My god. Perfect. Holy shit.

  44. Anonymous says:

    Spike's is awesome! Cute as hell, and I love the interplay with a certain other story in the series. Great job, as always!

  45. Anonymous says:

    Spike's is definitely the best.

  46. Nikita says:

    I have only three words to comment on Spike:LIKE A BOSS.

  47. nukeiffum says:

    I was smiling and giggling like a filly while reading Spike's part….OH GOD WHY DID I FORGET TO PAY MY COOTIE INSURANCE?

  48. Anonymous says:

    Old time gangster Spike… I like it, in fact he may just have replaced manly Spike as my favourite Spike.

  49. This was so, so good. Except for Rainbow Dash's. :T

  51. fireant says:

    Great set of short stories, each different in mood, atmoshpere and all of that. Loved Twilight with her child-like play and extra care she take to NOT been catch while playing like a little filly. Loved Rarity with her "experianced heart breaker" fantasia. Like Fluttershy and her Water-Peg story. Laughed hard on Pinkie Pie – it started like a grimdark, and ended like a Pinkie Being Pinkie. And LOVED Rainbow Dash, much more deeper, less "fun", but very emotional piece.5 starsies!

  52. LawnPygmy says:

    Thank you for the feedback, everyone! I'm glad to have entertained.Spike's was the longest to write, and was originally supposed to take place after Pinkie Pie's. But Rainbow butted in while Spike was dithering around trying to be a documentary by David Attenburro, and went first. I'm glad I did it, now.The whole series is supposed to take place on the same day at various times during it, with all of them bleeding into another one.Coming Soon: Secret Tub Fun 7 – Princess Celestia

  53. Shellsh0cker says:

    Oh man, every one is better than the last. I can't wait to see what you do next.

  54. Nullh says:

    Oh the Spike one. The Spike one!Raymond Chandler could only dream xD

  55. Daichi says:

    Spike is such a player. >XD Or not. Easily the best of the series thus far. I never LOLed so hard! I totally read that part in his voice the entire time.

  56. Kjh242 says:

    … Toy story reference in twilights… LOLwut?

  57. Kjh242 says:

    All so very hilarious… Except RD…But yeah, spike's is the best.SANDV… BUG MAKES ME STRONG! LIKE A BOSS!

  58. ryan says:

    I originally thought it was a play on the "secret butt fun" thing.

    First 6 parts bring about happiness(with the exception of RD which is a bit of a downer), and then part 7 takes that happiness and shatters it against a rock. Looking forward to the next installment.Gonna watch Corridor of Cupcakes now to heal my crushed heart.

    Yeah, Part 7 broke my heart, too. The author's emphasized an overarching plot for the whole series, though, so here's hoping Celestia doesn't go COMPLETELY bonkers by story's end.

    The first set were really fun. My favorite was Spike's chapter. Dash's was more secret then tub or fun but I still enjoyed it. Fluttershy's was sweet, Rarity's was silly, Twilight is such a kid at heart and Pinkie's was just of the wall crazy. I hope you add a chapter for Applejack soon.As for the Celestia arc. Daaaaam! Just, Daaaaaaam. I loved the origin story, it is just like a fairy tale. I really feel sad for Celestia after the second part. Are setting up for a fallow-up spin off story where Celestia sends the Elements on an epic adventure to find and purify the other Immortals only for them to return to find an insane Celestia has taken over the land? Because that would be awesome.

    Confound this fandom, now I have the burning urge to write a story about the Elements of Harmony seeking out and curing and freeing the old immortals (and Celestia may or may not be on that list)…. But on the note of your story, I started with Celestia and then went to read the other ones to see if they were that depressing or connected. I liked them, though Rainbow Dash's had a considerably different tone, and Spike's… I haven't gotten to yet, admittedly, but the promise of film noir narration pleases me.Celestia's, though, hoo boy. I loved the little creation myth you started out with! It read like a legend, and naming the other elements and listing those immortals was a nice touch.A nice touch which then turned into a punch with the court session in part two, where all of them are gone. Ooooh, poor Celestia. Hearing of the others in the tale, and seeing them all as mythical characters, and then seeing them from Celestia's mind was… Well, at first, I was excited, like Celestia, to see them, but when I learned what was going on… Poor girl. Man, I really want to give her a hug. :(Is this plot going to carry through the rest of this series, then?Also… Nice title drop.

    BEWARE! HERE BE SPOILERS!1: Happy fun silly bathtime with a rubber duck, toy robot, etc. Looks like this series will provide some nice and funny light reading and character insights.2: Ah, Rarity's reading trashy romance novels again. Probably written by Fluttershy.3: What a beautifully described cave, and of course she'd swim somewhere natural. Interesting delve into somewhat darker material, though.4: Yes, I see what you're hinting at, but–hah, yes! (Couldn't she have photographed it first, though?)5: Well, let's see what Rainbow thinks about in–…Okay, well, there's a tone shift. Still a great story, but the title doesn't exactly fit this one.6: Hahhahhah!! Oh, splendidly amusing!7a: Nice creation story, but what does it have to do with bathing?7b+7c: …OKAY THEN. Great story, but wow is the title dissonant now. How did we get from rubber ducks to this, again?I quite look forward to seeing what the others think about, but I'm really not sure the title still fits (though I suppose that "fun" could be partially interpreted in the Dwarf Fortress sense).

    @SomeGuyOops that last paragraph should start with "Are you setting up"And after reading your comment at the bottom of the Celestia Part 2 I just wanted to say that I don't like ragging on Celestia either and never bought into the whole Trolestia thing. Celestia is good and kind. The ponies bow to give her the honor and respect that one of her position is due. I really feel sad for Celestia in this story. Losing all her fellow peers and now watching herself falling victim to the same madness. It is lonely at the top. US presidents go into a "bubble" of isolation when elected. I can't imagine how painful it would be to live ones entire life like especially if said life is over a thousand years. I do hope that the FiM writers do something that looks into this if not in season 2 then in season 3. Nothing too sad or depressing of course but maybe something along the lines of the fic "Sunny Skies All Day Long."

    @AnonymousRainbow's isn't /quite/ finished yet. She's got a bit more to go. There are gonna be 12 parts to the series, with Luna's at the end wrapping everything up and tying things together, kinda. And then maybe a bonus 13th part just for fun.But if you want to write something about this, by all means, feel free! I encourage it, even!

    @Darth EquusWorking on one now, actually. Just a bit of light writing to pick me up after Celestia's piece.@SomeGuy I believe she's, if anything, a benevolent troll. She indulges in the occasional prank to keep her spirits up and to keep herself involved with ponies, and occasionally gives her subjects a pointed reminder just how silly they're being.Case in point: A Bird in the Hoof, where she pretended to take a sip of tea when the Cakes kept filling her teacup. Part prank, part reminder that they don't have to bend over backward to please her.She prefers informal relations with her subjects since it keeps her grounded and because it's what she's used to with her peers. But she lets them treat her like they do because it seems to make them happy, and she loves it when they're happy.I have no current plans for an adventure set with Celestia sending the Harmony Bearers after the other Immortals, but that does not preclude the fact that I may do something like that later! But it would be much later, if anything. Don't expect Celestia to let the Harmony Bearers go alone, though.And an episode like 'Sunny Skies All Day Long' would be AMAZING.@ RexylophoneKind of. This will be revisited, yes, but anything more would be spoilers.And I want to give her a hug, too. :<

    Have not read the Celestia part yet, but good lord is Spike's AMAZING. I am absolutely obsessed with that noir-ish tone and it fits perfectly well with Spike's character. I'd love to see more fics like this in general.God, do I love that bad-detective noir feel.
