The Legend of Pinkamena starring Pinkie Pie and a bunch of human characters
There are two ways of reaching Equestria from the human world but this story is about just one of them.
"So," I said, still struggling with the whole crazy idea. "If you fill the room with pink balloons and streamers and confetti, and then place a muffin..."
"A cupcake," she corrected me. "It has to be a cupcake." She shook her head, a half-smile on her lips. "Who knows what would happen if you used a muffin instead!"
"OK a cupcake, and you have to cover it... in hot sauce?"
"The hot sauce is vital," she assured me. "It absolutely won't work without the hot sauce."
I nodded. OK, so hot sauce was vital! Good to know... " and you place it in front of the mirror, and then you say what was her name again?"
"Pinkamena!" she cried, shaking her head. "Weren't you listening Jessie? You have to say Pinkamena three times! Not four, not two three! And then she'll appear!"
"The magical pink mirror pony?" I chuckled.
She nodded, deadly serious. "The magical pink mirror pony."
"Pinkamena Diane Pie?"
"Pinkamena Diane Pie."
"And what does she do, this Pinkamena Diane Pie, when she appears to you in the mirror?" I asked.
My friend smiled and looking back on it now, even then I saw something sinister in that smile, some dark pleasure lurking behind that smile that should have made me think twice about going through with the whole ludicrous thing. But I didn't.
"Oh, nobody knows," she replied. "But you should totally be the first one to find out!"
