Webcomic: Pinkie Pie Reads Cupcakes

Pinkie Pie: Does that say Cupcakes? I love cupcakes!

Pinkie Pie finds a short book with a very tempting title. She reads it.

It was not what she expected.

"Pinkie Pie Reads Cupcakes" is a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fancomic posted on deviantART by Musapan. It was begun as a reaction/refutation of the infamous fan story Cupcakes. Originally only a one-off, the artist continued the plot through six more installments (each can be linked to from the first comic's page). It is now complete.

It can be read here.
