. 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.
- Clingy MacGuffin - the copy of Cupcakes teleports from pony to pony, avoiding all attempts to lock it away.
- Expressive Mane - Pinkie's Heroic BSOD is accompanied by the return of her Pinkamena hairstyle.
- Heroic BSOD - Pinkie has a case of this when she sees Dash has read the copy of Cupcakes.
- Hilarity Ensues: the author/artist manages to find the funny in everyone's reaction.
- Secret Test of Character: It's revealed in the end that Celestia was responsible for the copy of Cupcakes as a manner to test the bond between the mane six to make sure they'd be ready for what lays ahead.
