Dan and Pinkie Take a Slice out of Life is a slice of life “interquel” to The Wheel and the Butterfly: A Dan X Pinkie Saga, a crossover between Dan Vs. and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. As in the original, “Dan and Pinkie Take a Slice out of Life” is separated into novella-length parts that are separated into chapters.
The story is written in a third-person, past-tense perspective with the occasional breaking of the fourth wall by Pinkie Pie. The story is also written a way in which the reader does not need to have seen any of the “Dan Vs.” episodes in order to fully grasp the plot; however, several references to the show add in a little something for the readers who are a fan of both and does encourage non-fans to at least watch it. The chapter titles are variations of the “Dan Vs.” episode titles, with one or more of the characters versus something.
Part 1: Pinkie Vs. Clothes
“Pinkie Vs. Clothes” takes place roughly a few days after “Part 2: Dan Vs. Pinkie” of “The Wheel and the Butterfly” and is about Pinkie’s struggle to adapt to certain aspects of clothing, such as bras and washing them.
