|Date published||May 6, 2011|
SummaryThe story starts with Pinkie Pie waking up after a long night of festivities. As she does her normal business around Ponyville, she is stopped by a strange pony that emerges from a dark alleyway, beckoning her to come over. Pinkie Pie complies and the stranger offers her a strange scroll, telling her that it is the key to the greatest party Equestria has ever known. After Pinkie looks over the contents of the scroll, she agrees to the strange pony’s demands, and takes the scroll. She fully intends to put the scroll to use. After a while, Pinkie makes her way to Ponyville's old, abandoned, amusement park where her secret Party Research Facility is located. Once inside, she gets to work at building a huge metallic device as per the scroll’s instructions. After long, intense labor, Pinkie Pie successfully creates a huge robotic version of herself known as “The Mecha Pinkie Pie.” She intends to use the contraption to throw the best party Equestria has ever known.
Later that night, Twilight Sparkle is sleeping in the Ponyville Library when she is suddenly awoken by loud music and laughter coming from outside. Once outside, Twilight is shocked not only to see one of the biggest parties she ever seen in her life, but the huge mechanical Pinkie Pie watching over the party as well. It is raining confetti and streamers and an aura of hearts lit up the night sky. Confused, Twilight shakes Pinkie Pie frantically, trying to understand what is going on. Meanwhile, Mecha Pinkie Pie spots a cake, and decides it's time for a snack.
