Episode 1: Merit
Pinky: Look, look! I found this in that forest over there!
Pinky: Yup-yup-yup, it's an acorn! Isn't it just so cute?
Pinky: Aww, c'mon now! Don't be like that! We finally have the day off, let me be me!
Pinky: Oh, and look at this too! Bam! I made this costume myself! Hahaha!
Pinky: Isn't it just the cutest?! Isn't it just adorable?!
Pinky: Hey, hey, hey! Don't treat me like a kid, just 'cause I like acorns and pandas!
Pinky: Hmph! *Pout* Fine, I'm just a big baby then! Heehee, you sorry now?!
Pinky: Why am I always in such a good mood?
Pinky: It's 'cause being positive is just who I am!
Her boundless energy and smiling face made her very fun to be around.
Episode 2: True Tears
She said being positive was just who she was, but this day she was different.
Pinky: O-Oh, hi there.
Tears were streaming down her face.
Pinky: N-No, nothing's wrong!
Pinky: ...Really? You really want to know?
Pinky: It's... *snniff*... It's just that...
Pinky: Everyone else is fighting so bravely, but I...I just don't know why I do it.
Pinky: I always come here to have a cry after each battle.
Pinky: I hate it, being so weak like this. If this keeps up...
Pinky: I'll never be strong, like everyone else.
Pinky: The real reason I like costumes is 'cause they make me feel like I could, y'know, not be me.
"You're always fun to be around."
Pinky: Really? I'm fun? You think so?
"There's no shame in crying."
Pinky: That makes me feel a lil' better.
"You can catch up to them, I know it!"
Pinky: You mean it? Okay then, I guess I'll do it one step at a time!
Pinky: Thanks, Commander...
Pinky: *Giggle* I think I feel a lil' better now.
A faint smile began creeping over her face.
Episode 2: Spinnin Panda Lance
Several days later, the commander found hinky: Per in that place again after a battle.
Pinky: Oh, Commander!
Pinky: Were you worried about me?
Pinky: I'm fine, no tears today!
Pinky: Commander, listen... Up 'til now...
Pinky: I don't like being a crybaby, so I think I was forcing myself to be all smiles all the time.
Pinky: But from now on, I'll accept it, all of the good and bad parts of me!
Pinky: Am I a bit more...mature, now?
Pinky: Just kidding! *Giggle*
"I think you deserve a reward!"
Pinky: A reward? Hmm... What do I want. Acorns? Pandas? Naww...
"Anything you want to do?"
Pinky: What do I wanna do? Umm...I wanna move, do something active!
"Wanna go somewhere?"
Pinky: Naww, but there is something I'd like to do with you!
Pinky: Let's dance! You and me!!
Pinky: C'mon, c'mon, over here! Ready? Then, let's dance!
Pinky: Hahaha! Whee! This's so much fun!!
Pinky: Being with you always makes me forget my problem!
Pinky: I feel lots better now!
It was at that moment that something changed within her.
Pinky: Whoa... What's this feeling?
Pinky: Am I stronger than I used to be? It feels like I've got power bursting out my ears!
It was at that moment, the Princess had discovered a new skill.
Pinky: Yaaayy! I've got a new skill!
Pinky: I think I'll call it... "Spinning Panda Lance!"
Pinky: Isn't this just sooo much fun?
Pinky: ...What's wrong? Why're you slumped over like that? You aren't tried already, are you?
Pinky: C'mon, c'mon, c'mon!
Pinky: I wanna keep dancing, Commander!
While it was nice to see her back in high spirits, the commander was also a bit worried that it would be impossible to keep up with her like this.
