It was a warm summers evening in ponyville and Rainbow Dash was making her rounds around the town. She was coming from Twist's house with a present for Pinkie Pie, the present was a delightful cake with sprinkles of every color and a cupcake for Gummy on the side. Pinkie Pie is a happy, cheerful, and somewhat random pony that thrived from the laughter of others and could always lift somepony's mood...this is her story.
--Secrets Revealed (Intro/Ch.1)
"Pinkie Pie are you there" called Rainbow Dash entering Pinkie's house. As Dash rounded the corner she see's something out of the corner of her eye, in the corner of the room was a sleeping changeling curled into a ball. Dash cautiously approached the changeling readying herself to jump on it when it opened an eye and shouted "Rainbow Wait". The small changeling got to her feet and stared intently at Dash waiting for a response. "Pinkie?" whispered Rainbow looking at the changeling that had just spoken with the familiar voice of her friend Pinkie Pie. Pinkie stood still looking at her feet only to look up and ask "So whats up Rainbow Dash?".
After steadying herself Rainbow examined Pinkie Pie as she re-took her pony form. Raibow Dash found her voice long enough to ask Pinkie about her background. Pinkie Pie explained that she had never really lived on a rock farm but was adopted by a family in Phillydelphia. Soon after she had been adopted off the streets her new parent had found out that she was a changeling as well. She explained that since such time that she had lived as a pony bringing joy to those around her and feeding off of it as she did so. She had found a way for changelings to live in harmony with the races of ponies, pegasi, and unicorns alike.
Rainbow's head was spinning and she didnt know where to start. "What do you eat" she asked wearily. "I eat both food and love" replied Pinkie Pie while trotting over to open her door. "Why do you create happieness to feed off of not just feed off others" asked Dash as she took a step forward threateningly. "Because I am a good changeling and I'm not a follower of Chrysalisand her greedy ways" Pinkie replied quickly.
Pinkie Pie told Rainbow Dash to get their friends and to meet back at her place in a few hours. After exchanging farewells and giving Pinkie her cake, Rainbow left to go find the rest of the ponies, if only they knew what they were about to learn...
After minutes of anticipation Pinkie entered the room sporting her normal Pinkie Pie smile. She sat down in the corner of the room in a dusty looking chair and looked over her awaiting friends eyes. In a brilliant flash of light Pinkie returned to her natural changeling form exposing her true self to the others. Everpony except Dash was so taken aback that they gasped at the look of their friend's appearences. Before them sat the real true form of Pinkie Pie, a oddly colored changeling with a dark blue coat instead of the regular black one."This is the true me" Pinkie said shyly. There was a long pause and then Twilight asked "How did you end up in ponyville?". "How rude of me" said Pinkie "Let me explain"... Pinkie then began to explain her past to the others...
--Background of a Changeling Rougue (Ch.2)
Pinkie had always been a bit of a reject when she was growing up. She was born in a harsh land ruled by the changeling queen Chrysalis that had once tried taking over Equestria. In the times before the failed invasion of Equestria however, the changeling nation Dirivicus was at war with the surrounding nations. During the war Pinkies parents were caught by a rival nation trying to lure in new ponies to feed off of and were sentenced to life imprisionment for war crimes. After her parents capture she took to the streets and was treated terribly because of who she was. Being a young changeling she could only hold a form for a few minutes as she wandered the winding roads trying to find a way to survive.
Many a day passed as she slowly found her way to the outskirts of Fillydelphia. She came upon a salesman shouting out the prices of the fruits and vegtables in his cart. As she stumbled past she collapsed from hunger in a distressed thud. She awoke to a salesman with an apple cart cutie mark looming over her asking if she was ok. She mustered her strength and nodded to the salesman. The salesman helped her to her feet and asked her if she was allright. She said that she was hungry in her best pony sounding voice in reply. The salesman made his way to his cart and picked out his best looking apple and handed it to Pinkie. She looked up at him with a confused expession on her face and asked him to explain in her best pony voice. The saleman somewhat confused also reached into his cart and took a bite of an apple. Pinkie did the same and tasted the apple in her mouth. This was her first taste of food that wasn't emotion related, and she loved it.
The salesman asked her where her parents were, she stared at the ground for a long while before the salesman understood. The salesman asked her to follow him into town in fear for her safety. They began walking farther into town and Pinkie felt herself losing hold of her current form. The salesman stopped abruptly at a small house and knocked at the door leaving his cart near the walkway to the house. A unicorn with hot pink eyes, with a coat the color of fresh blueberries and a slightly lighter mane opened the door and the salesman addressed her as Mally. Pinkie took note of Maillys eyes a vibrant color that she adored (There wasnt much diversity as far as changelings were). As the two ponies chatted she made her way behind the cart and rested by letting herself change back into her changeling form.
Pinkie heard the conversation coming to a close and re-took her pony form. Mally turned to the salesman and addressed him as Albrine which pinkie thought was a good sounding name. Mally thanked him for bringing Pinkie to her and expressed her disbelief that she had been left to roam the streets for so long. Strong or stubborn, Mally told Pinkie that she has some real greatnees to her to have survived that long on the streets. She led Pinkie into the house and turned to expose her cutie mark (berries with beautiful leaves surrounding them).
Pinkie followed her inside looking back at Albrine waving goodbye. The house was full of pots and pans scattered about and a bowl of some sort of blue mush inside it. Pinkie inhaled taking in the wondrous smells coming from the rooms. She followed Mally into a room near the back of the house. Mally pointed at a small bed next to the window and told Pinkie that she could rest in here and play with the few toys that were in the cupboard.
Mally stared intently at Pinkie Pie and asked what her name was, but she still couldn't speak with the right voice. She saw no other way than to point at Mally, more specifically at her eyes. "So you're name is eye" Mally said, Pinkie shook her head. Pinkie widened her eyes and pointed to them to get the point across. "Oh, so your name is Pink" mally had said while Pinkie nodded in agreement. "Hmm well thats an odd name, well I know what to call you now" she said giggling "Ill call you pinkie". Pinkie also smiled in agreement. "Alright Pinkie, ill call you when i'm done" Mally said as she left the room.
--A Very Pinkie Past (Ch.3)
Pinkie looked around the room and saw a mirror in the corner, she hasn't gotten a good look at herself and wants to remember the form she is in so she wont mess up in the future. she stares at herself, and looks at the door, no ones there. Deciding it is safe she looks back at the mirror and changes her color to the same as miss Mallys eyes. She is really happy with it, but knows she cant keep it and changes back to her origional dark orange. she also wants to see what it would look like with a cutey mark, but she hasn't ever really tried to make a cutey mark before. she tries but it doesn't come out right so she changes it back to blank. Mally calls from the from the other room "Lunch time".
She comes out of the room to find that there are other little fillys waiting at the table already. She is a little shocked to see them there and she hides behind the counter. "Hello pinkie, this is my family" says Mally inroducing Estrich, Marline and Saris. Hi, hay and hello they each say as Pinkie comes out from behind the counter and goes to sit at the table with the others. Ok, here you go, Mally puts a freshly baked and cooled blueberry pie on the table. she hands out a plate to each pony and puts a piece on them. Pinkie is a little weirded out by it, she had never seen a pie before. It's smell is so attracting though, she leans forward to take a bite but is stopped by Mally and given a fork. She doesn't know what the fork is and just puts it down and takes a large bite from the pie. She jumps into the air, she has never felt such pleasure before. Her smile grows so wide its hard to keep the food in her mouth before she swallows it. She hastily eats the entire peice in one big bite. "Well, looks like somepony really likes my blueberry pie" Mally says.
"Oh yes- yes- yes i love it" Pinkie says in a really high piched voice, "I have never had anything like this before". "What is it called" asks Pinkie Pie. Mally and her daughters stare at her for a second they start laughing and gigling. "Your voice" exclaims Saris while falling out of her chair in laughter. "What" asks Pinkie Pie squeaking again realizing her problem and covering her mouth. "Dont be shy, its a lovely voice" Mally says, "Is that why you wouldn't speak before", "Were you afraid what i would think of you're voice"?. Pinkie nods. "Oh Pinkie i think you're voice is perfect just the way it is" says Mally. "Really?" Pinkie says again with the slightly high-pitched voice. "Yeah, its awesome" Saris says still gigling as she gets up off the floor and back into her chair .
Pinkie smiles, she has never been complemented before or even been spoken to really by anypony other then her parents and mister Albrine. She looks at the rest of the pie on the table. "Would you like another piece pinkie" asks Mally. "Oh yes, yes I would love another piece" Pinkie says. Mally gives her another slice, and this time pinkie eats it more slowly enjoying every bite. She looks over at the others, they are a very loving family aren't they she thinks to herself. She wonders if it would be ok to feed off their love since they have been so nice to her.
She stops eating the pie she has on her plate, and looks at Mally. "M-miss Mally, can i ask you something" Pinkie asks wearily. "Yes pinkie, anything" Mally responds. "What would you say if I told you im not actually a pony..." asks Pinkie staring at the pie in front of her. Mally and the others stop eating and look at pinkie. "Well thats an odd question" Estrich says, "what else could you be but a pony". Pinkie looks at them "Well what if i was something like a.." she pauses for a minute, "what if i was a changeling". Now she has everyponys full atention. Although equestia is safe from the changelings that dose not mean that they haven't had their incidences. "W-well that would be um, well um..." Mally stutters over and over. "Well so long as you're not an evil um whatever that is, im ok with you being that" Marline says over her mothers stuttering. Everypony is quiet for the rest of their time spent at the table. After words Mally sends her daughters out back to play.
Pinkie starts to follow but Mally tells her to stay. Pinkie would you sit down for a sec. "Ok" she says sitting back down. Mally sits in the chair across from her. "Are you a changeling Pinkie" she asks with a serious look on her face. "Well, I kinda maybe sorta y-yes, i am" Replies Pinkie. "b-but im not an evil one" she adds hastily. Mally stares at her for a long time. "C-can I see" she asks. Pinkie turns back into her original form, and Mally is quite shocked to see her change. "Pinkie, is that you're real name" asked Mally doubtfully. "Well no, i don't actually have a name" said Pinkie,"Changelings don't normally tend to name their offspring", "We normally just name ourselves". Mally goes quiet again for a long time. she seemed to be thinking deeply. "Well this is an interesting situation im in" said Mally, "If I let you stay how long could you go without feeding off of us?". "If i send you out, then there's no way you could take care of you're self" she adds."Well we changelings don't only need to feed off of the emotions of ponies" said Pinkie, "We can eat other things too... well at least i think we can". "I ate the pie after all, and I do feel a little less hungry". "Im also used to not getting much emotional energy" Pinkie said, "Back home they barely let me eat when ever the gatherers brought back ponies to, you know". "I see" Mally says with a slowly growing smile, "Well provided you do not feed off of me, or my daughters or any other pony in town i see no reason no to let you stay". Pinkie looks at her and smiles finally feeling truly accepted...
Several weeks later"
Pinkie is outside playing with Saris, They have become very close friends since she had first arrived. While playing on the swing-set Pinkie starts feeling a little ill so they go inside. Pinkie soon becomes weaker and can no longer hold her form and changes in front of the girls, who up until now had been left out of her little secret. The girls are a little shocked by her change but arent scared, they know pinkie and even as a small blue changeling. They help her up and to her room and go to get Mally. "Whats wrong?" Mally asks pinkie. "I don't know" she says, "I just feel soo hungry". Mally's eyes grow wide "Girls, I want you to go to your rooms for a while". "But what about-" Saris is cut off by her mother. "NOW!" She exclaims. Mally waits for the others to leave and then says "Pinkie, if you really need to, you can feed off of my love, my love for you". "Ever since you came here the girls have never been happier, and in a way you have even brought me closer to them then we were before" she says looking into Pinkie's eyes, "I owe you at least this much". "Are you sure?" Pinkie asks. "Yes it's ok Pinkie, it's fine" Mally says.
Pinkie slowly regains her energy, and after a few minutes Mally goes to see the girls in their rooms and says that pinkie is going to be fine and she needs to go lay down for a while. Mally sleeps for a long time. she awakes the next day in the afternoon to find that pinkie had tried to make a pie while she was asleep. "what are you doing" Mally says smiling looking at Pinkie. "Well you were asleep so i tryed to make a, what did you call it. "a pie" says Mally. "yeah that a pie" Pinkie says smiling. "Pinkie, there are other things to eat other then pies". "Yeah i know but I wanted to make one for you so you could have something sweet and tasty when you got up" said Pinkie happily. "Ahhh, here let me help you with that" says Mally boosting Pinkie up to the counter. "What about that?" Pinkie asks Mally. "That goes there" she says as they start making their first pie together, the first of many...
--back to the hear and now (Ch.4)
"And thats how I came to live among the ponies of Fillydelphia" Said Pinkie Pie to Rainbow Dash and the others, "Mally taught me how to make all sorts of treats and goodies". "Soon though I had to leave, Saris and the others had to go off to their new jobs all over Equestria" said Pinkie, "I learned how to feed off of multiple ponies at a time to lessen the effects on them, and soon it was my turn to leave home". "I told Mally goodbye, thanked her for years of kindness she had given me, and got on the first wagon out of town, and well here i am..."
