Pinkie walked through Sugar Cube Corner. It was early yet, the shop hadn't opened. She watched the light from the rising sun play across the colourful candies and sweets, making them sparkle like diamonds. She straightened a display of lollipops until it looked perfect and she smiled at the beauty of it.

She walked out the shop door and locked it behind her, even though she knew it would never open again. They only had a few minutes left.

Putting on her best smile she bounced over down the street and towards a table where her friends were gathered round.

"There you are Pinkie," Twilight called to her happily. She didn't know, none of them did. Twilight spoke briefly about the the great adventure they had the night before. Pinkie found it hard to listen to the recap, but savored hearing her friend's voice.

"I just want you all to know, that you're my very best friends and I'm just so happy to be with you," Twilight finished and gathered them all into a group hug. It was a bit out of character, but Pinkie didn't mind.

She had to speak now, she got the last line. She swallowed hard and her throat felt dry. "And we'll be together forever."

Later, on forums across the web, posters complained of another show "screwed by the network" and the continuing downward trend of cartoons.  Still there were others discussing an image cropped from the last shot.  All the ponies were smiling and laughing in the picture, but Pinkie alone had tears streaming down her face.
A VERY short thing I did on 4chan as part of a hey-let's-try-to-make-each-other-cry thread.

Oh my god. I can honestly imagine the people working on the show, finding out they're being cancelled, and being like: Alright. We're going to screw the network over one last time. 

And insert that scene right at the end. We will figure it out. Maybe they'll have that last episode be about something sad, so the network won't make the connection. But we will. 
oh my god that's depressing.

The show won't last forever, but you'll be my best friends forever. I don't give a shit if you're fictional, you'll be my friends, you saved me from a depression streak, and I'll be forever in debt.

This manages to put a depressing spin on Pinkie's Fourth Wall breakage. I mean, could you imagine knowing that your entire world is about to end, and you could do nothing about it? And that you're the only one that knows anything about the end and no one would believe you?

Your story is featured in Tv Tropes as an example of End of Series Awareness. Although Spongebob managed to keep going, but then again nothing else managed to last as long as that show recently.

Here's another question for you.

What if Pinkie Pie is fully aware of each time the show gets retooled? She's the only one aware that the universe has completely changed!

Yep, this got me misty eyed....

Was it by any chance inspired by that one other fic where a brony gets a visit from Pinkie Pie after the final season ends, and she says her goodbyes to him through the fourth wall?

I was reminded of that and had to go look it up. Still not sure who the author is though.

Brother Prickle said this in an earlier comment:
"...you know, I once read this webcomic called 1/0. It was about a group of characters who knew the whole time they were in a webcomic. Near the end, the author (who interacted with them all the time) told them that he was wrong about them ceasing to exist when he ends his story. They'll still exist so long as there are people who read it.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic may end production one day. But as fanfiction writers, we have proven that the universe Lauren Faust helped create does not end there. Decades from now, there will be fans of this show, Celestia willing.

Pinkie Pie, you have immortality, for every time someone watches your show, you live once more. No tears. No tears."
And I believe it. Fictional characters can't die so long as they're remembered.

Yeah, I saw that comment, and it cheered me up a little. :) I think the main reason this is such a tearjerker is that it's Pinkie, and whenever she's depressed, well...:iconshitjustgotrealplz:

Sigh, I think pinkie pie may be independent of the show but <sob> <sob> the others are not. She is crying for them.

at least that's how I interpreted it.

Well, a thread on 4chan was asking "What would really break the character's hearts?"
And after thinking about it for Pinkie I decided that they only thing that would do it is the end of their universe.

No, I was just referring to those types of fics in general, lol. Not that there are many; most can't seem to resist having them end up together.
