"More then you know."

Printworthy took a sip from his cider. "Back when I was living in Equestia, I was the author of the Daring Do adventure seres. Ah, I see you have heard of it. Yes, well, back then, I had the extraordinary privilege to travel with several archeological teams across Equestia, and beyond, exploring ruins of ancient civilizations for inspiration for my novels." He sighed, taking a somewhat larger gulp of cider. "Sadly, canon has since decided that's not who I am anymore. Now, I'm just a writer."

Printworthy shook his head slightly, chuckling. "However, I doubt you wanted to hear those stories. You were more interested in the stories involving Pinkie Pie, I am sure. Well, to be perfectly honest, there is not all too much to tell, really. I was in Ponyville one day for a book signing at the Golden Oaks Library.

"The turnout was far higher than I ever anticipated, and I was comming off of a long night's worth of writing. I was dog tired, battling the urge to slump over on a limited edition of Sapphire Stone and let the inevitable chores of disappointed cries drift me to sleep. At that point the act of signing became a mere reflexive act. However, when I drug forward the next item to carve my signature into, I found myself scribbling on a gigantic pink mug! Startled, I looked up to see Pinkie Pie. 'You look like you need this,' she said, nudging the mug ever closer. 'Don't worry, it's on the house. Gummy's special blend!" Before I could say a word in thanks, off she went, bouncing around the library from pony to pony!"

Printworthy laughed. "Most of our interactions were like that. Short, yet strange little interactions that brought me immense joy."

Printworthy smiled towards Rina, slyly. "Are you sure you told Alex everything? Including from our last mission?"

    Alex grinned and took a sip of his hot chocolate. "Sounds like you've had some cool adventures." "Oi, what am I, chopped liver?" Rina protested. "You don't count, you've already told me your... more

            who had buried her face in her arms. "Sabrina? Have you beenó?" "No!" Rina yelled. She paused, realizing her shout had been rather loud. "We were pegasi, okay? He was showing me how to fly." "I'm so... more
