Cupcake and Pandora enter the Annual Canterlot Bake-Off. Shenanigans ensue. Excerpt:
“Baking is a subtle art, filled with subtext and poetry appreciated by few,” Cupcake said. “Also we try not to blow things up.”
“But whyyyy?” Pandora whined, swirling her whisk dismally. “We both know flour’s already explosive. We’re like halfway to fun!”
“No,” Cupcake said.
“Uuuuuugh.” Pandora flopped. “Why do you like this so much?”
“It’s a quiet, structured expression of chaos,” Cupcake explained, her own whisk beating away steadily. “There are recipes and instructions, but the ultimate product depends on the whims of the baker. It is the soul rendered in dough.”
“Wow, that’s kind of deep, Cupcake.” Pandora glanced at her bowl with more appreciation.
“I like to read,” Cupcake said.

In which young Pandora demands a bedtime story from Discord. What follows next is massive dad trolling. Excerpt:
"Oh, but I wasn't a king, Panny. No self-respecting creature of chaos would ever call himself or herself a king! I was called the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a title of respect. Nobles would come running up saying 'Flying Spaghetti Monster Discord, our peasants are revolting!' and I would say 'That's because you won't share your soap with them!' Then I'd turn their roads into soap and their meadows to swimming pools so the peasants could get a wash and then they wouldn't be revolting anymore." Discord sighed contentedly. "Ah, those were the good old days. Ponies used to call me their 'noodly master' and I would give them pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was a wonderful time."
"You were not the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Daddy."
"So certain! So confident of your facts! How would you know? You weren't there."
GO FORTH, read these fics, dear watchers! The future of the world depends on it! Or y'know, just if you want to. They're really good, very well written, very funny. I recommend them if you're a Pandoraverse fan, or just if you like smart pony comedy.
