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.
