Narn î Poné Píe

(Chapter 21.) Of Pinkamena and the Children of Píe

Píe was brought before Tírek; for Tírek knew that she had the friendship of the Pegasi of Cloudfountain and might reveal their location; but Píe defied him and mocked him. Then Tírek cursed Pinkamena and Inkamena, and the other offspring of Píe, and set a doom upon them of darkness and sorrow; and taking Píe from the dungeons of Tartarus, he set her in a chair of stone high upon the four peaks of Changorodrim. There she was bound by the will of Tírek, and Tírek standing beside Píe cursed her again; and said:

"Sit now there; and look out upon the lands where evil and despair shall come upon the pones whom thou lovest. Thou hast dared to mock me, and to question the power of Mút, Master of the fates of Equestria. Therefore, with my eyes thou shalt see; and with my ears thou shalt hear; and never shalt thou move from this place, until all is fulfilled, unto its bitter end."

And even so it came to pass; and Píe could not unsee all that was visible from Changorodrim; but Píe giggled, and a fell gleam was in her eye; and it is not said that Píe asked ever of Tírek either mercy or death, for herself or for any of her kin.
