Go To

Princesses Don't Potty is a fanfiction of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic that has a rather crude (but not overly adult) plot.

It focuses on Princess Luna getting drunk on cider and shouting out drunkenly that she needs to pee, which makes Twilight curious as to whether or not Alicorns pee or poop (as she's not one herself yet).She and her friends then get some diuretic herbs from Zecora's hut and plan to put them in Celestia's tea. Meanwhile, Celestia is having a bit of a bad mood as she's been dyed pink accidentally due to a prank and needs to pee but wants to avoid peeing to convince Twilight that Alicorns don't pee.

Assuming that Princess Celestia doesn't ever need to use the bathroom, then the tea won't do anything. But if she does, she just might get suspicious. What if she starts thinking that her sudden attack of the squirts isn't natural?"
    Pinkie Pie: "Uh, Dash? I don't think that's the right word. 'The squirts' is.."
