I've been reading several of this already, and one pony is always catching my attention every time she's being mentioned: Berry Punch. It has been established that Cheerliee is her sister and Ruby Punch her daughter, and that she has a drinking problem, but she doesn't seem to get closure at any time. In fact, she gets more screwed with every event. Like when Fluttershy becomes Nightmare Whisper, she throws this very expensive bottle she was saving for Ruby when she was older and such. Even if Applejack's visions in other stories we see that Ruby is eventually taken away from her and given to her sister.

Also, that filly she runs with in the Sisterhooves Social (images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__c… her fan name is "Piņa Colada", is she supposed to be Ruby? Because I was under the impression that Ruby has a darker color. Or does Berry's race event doesn't exist on this series?

"Even if Applejack's visions in other stories we see that Ruby is eventually taken away from her and given to her sister."

That was just an alternate universe. 

There are two recursives that deal with Berry Bunch and Cheerilee. 




And I've decided that was a filly Berry Punch PAID to act as her little sister because he refused to run the race with Cheerilee.

Yes, I actually read Teacher With a Green Thumb and Cheerilee and Berry Punch, plus the scene of Berry Punch on the Derpy story where Derpy and Carrot Top kept her from going gray. And the scene with her during the Nightmare Whisper story as well.

The thing is that while facing her problem, and what consequences they might have, Berry Punch just never seems to get some closure. In fact the more I read about her the more questions arise from her character. It was implied that she made and tasted her own wines, but I got some mixed messages about her addiction to drinking, mainly if she was an alchoholic before Discord's taint, or after it?
Also, she does seem to have mixed feeling about quitting, like she wants to for her sake and Ruby's but at the same time something is holding her back, as if she's afraid of quitting. And her past with Cheerliee suggests that she felt inadequate and insignificant next to her outgoing and more popular sister, and drinking made her come out of said shell. Maybe she's afraid that if she stopped drinking she'll become that again? (Which again, only works if she was an alchoholic before Discord). Also it is clear that both she and Cheerilee have family issues with their mother, and we barely see Berry Punch as a mother figure to Ruby, we see her show concern to her well being, but not much else. How is she as a mother? As a role model? How does Ruby see her? How does Ruby see her aunt?
The thing you said about Berry Punch paying a little filly to act as her sister makes it even more of a point that she has big issues with Cheerilee, and said issues get only scratched upon on the surface, with some hint of them trying to resolve them, but not much else. I mean, how much does she dislike Cheerilee that she's actually doing that in order to NOT be with her. What happened between them? The only hint we get is that her mother threw her out when she got pregnant, and Cheerliee did next to nothing to defend her, but that's about as much feedback as we get...
I'm sorry but Berry Punch's story seems to have lots of things left to explore and while I want to read more about her, and Cheerilee and Ruby, not much is used of them except as a side story within other plots and characters.

It's under the title 'happy cake adventure' for irony's sake.
