  1. In the distant future there is only war. The Corpse Emperor sits on his throne, immobile due to wounds succumbed while facing his once most favored of sons, the Warmaster, Thrice Damned be his name, Horus, the best, the brightest, Lupercal. There sits a jar inside the Emperor's Children Apothecarion, labelled "Honourable Soulaka," a Techmarine of legendary providence, murdered by the vile machinations of Fabius Bile, the gene-render of the III Legion. Also next to it sits a jar with the progenoid gland with the sigil of the Imperial Fists, the Sons of Dorn. These two jars are combined some years later into the being known as the Half-Breed, the bastard, Honsou. Honsou is a lowly line captain competing with First Captain Forrix and Assault Captain Kroeger for the favor of the one known only as the "Warsmith," Formerly Known as Barban Falk. The Warsmith's Fleet has descended from Medrengard to a planet called Hydra Cordatus. Only one soul knows the reasoning behind the sudden invasion. The Warsmith chooses not to reveal his secrets, as his ascendancy to daemonhood relies on the success of the mission. After months of hard campaigning and the multitude of the thunder of guns of all caliber, and even a Planetary Defence Torpedo, Falk has succeeded. The Fortress he built at the dawn of the Imperium has been broken open, it's secret Gene-seed vault laid open to him. He offers this up to the dark gods, and they are pleased, and Falk is elevated to princedom in eternal damnation. Honsou's competition did not survive the assault, Forrix came out second best in a fight with a Warhound Titan, and Kroeger, in a sick twist of fate was betrayed the god of blood he chose to follow, and laid low by a mere mortal whom he thought he could break for enjoyment. Moving Forward, Honsou's fortress of Khalan Gol on Medrengard had been destroyed by the Ultramarines captain Uriel Ventris. He swore revenge. The warmaster made pacts which would destroy the soul of a mere mortal, he formed alliances with beings so unholy as to not utter their names for fear of eternal damnation, yet even that wasn't enough, the stalwart defenders of the Imperium repulsed his assault at the heart of Maccragge, and Honsou fled into the warp. As many know, the Warp is a fickle being, and time, reality, and even matter are nothing compared to the whims of the beings there. The Warsmith emerged from the Abyss some time later changed. He now resembles something of an Equine animal from the picts on Ancient Terra, his armor having morphed to match his new frame, Necrodermis Arm forging a leg and hoof of unbreakable iron, his mind is still sharp, he realizes that he alone has made the transition back to realspace. He descends upon the world below him. The land of Equestria awaits, yet the Warmaster is a master of guile and deceit. Knowing his weapons are going to be useless in his altered form, he discards his daemon axe, and his ruinous bolter. If the Warsmith is going to enslave the world, it's going to be with Hoof and tooth. Yet the fire of ambition once more returns inside of him, to be able to return to his own reality, and be able to exact vengeance upon the hated warriors of Ultramar, and to finally carve a path through to Terra, and finally end the Corpse Emperor's reign.
  2. How would the Man6 react to fanfiction that portrays them as murderous and insane?
  3. This is my first grimdark reading, It's pretty cringy hearing me try to pull off a Sweetie Belle impression though.
  4. Disclaimer: This is probably not a simple question that can be quickly and safely answered with a single sentence typed by someone who didn't read the whole thing. Short question 1: What grimdark and gore elements are allowed with relation to "PG-13"? I did a search for a question regarding "grimdark" and the last/only topic I saw was from April of 2015. The only answer I saw was that grimdark wasn't allowed because it typically involves gore. I am aware that the site is PG-13, but "gore" is not allowed. Unfortunately, the rating and the restriction of gore is too vague. (I'm a "Rules as Written" pony and to me "no gore" can mean a paper cut on Fluttershy or implied gore that isn't shown: I take that means all fanart of Lilpip isn't allowed simply because Fallout Equestria is grimdark and has gore in it so not even references are allowed). Not just for gore, but grimdark also encompasses dark humor, tragic endings, general or implied violence, horror movie references, domestic abuse, sexual innuendos, and drug/alcohol references. Reason for the question is because all of those named elements exist in PG-13 rated games, television shows, and movies. (If it's allowed, I'll be sure to post some kind of warning at the top alongside a 'Wait for Approval' post option.) Short question 2: Does the MLP Forums community even have bronies interested in said content? Even if something is allowed, it would be wasteful if the community itself frowns upon it or dislikes it. Question 3: I have a running comic series that seems relatively popular, which is growing into an "Ask Me". I was going to share it in MLP Forums, but I need confirmation from an admin due to the grey area it reaches. Could somepony help me with that? And if 1 admin approves but another admin comes along and disapproves, am I going to get in trouble?
  5. Wow, feels like forever since I've told an actual story! This one's new, and in fact, during my hiatus. I told you it'd come in handy! I haven't really told anyone this, but I'm a big fan of Creepypastas. I love them! They're like the next level of horror material, and if done correctly, can be used to keep you on your toes for the next week! But there's a problem (there always is) I have somewhat of a "sanity meter" built into my mind. If I listen to too many readings, I become scared of the world around me. Even if I know it's fake, or there's no way the events described are possible, I'm still terrified of my own shadow. So I established a "three-fiction" rule (I only listen to three a night, if desired). But of course, I'm an idiot and wish to listen to as many as I want. Rest in peace, sanity. This "sanity meter" is nothing new. I've had it long before I became a brony. The catch is that I listen to, and read, things that are related to what I like, and at the moment, that means ponies. So OF COURSE I'm going to listen to some PonyPastas! Yeah, that was a bad idea. I was on the Ponyville.FM when I found out Scribbler was doing a reading on, "Does it Hurt to Sleep?", a rather well done fiction. Anyway, the video was about a day old and I was curious. As I explained above, I'm a sucker for that sort of thing, so I decided to give it a shot. Like I said, it was very well written and somewhat believable. Of course, there was a bit of descriptive issues near the end, but that's all fine and dandy when you've got a reader building up the atmosphere. When the first story came to a close, I was intrigued to listen to another, then another. Finally, I stumbled across psychological horror fiction by the name of, "The Hole in My Face" Now, normally I'd laugh at something like this, and I did; but it really got in my head after a while. The bad part about this? It starred Applejack, my fiance. (If you don't get that joke, look back for a previous blog entry, "Telling My Brother How Unworthy I Am". I still don't know where that ring is going to go. . . anal rings) Let's just say, after the creepypasta, I didn't feel myself. I went to bed and stared at my AJ plush for more than an hour. For some reason, I couldn't quite get the thought out of my head. Her face was as plush and cute as usual, but what if it was an illusion like the story described. I touched it just to make sure. My insanity lasted a good three days. I couldn't think, or bear to look, at my fiance for as long as there was day. No, I didn't have nightmares. If I did, I'd put them down, but I think that's a good story for another time. Lesson of the day is to not read sp00ky stories without adult suppervision (see what I did there? The title's name has "Dinner" and the ending lesson has "Supper" ( ͡º ͜ʖ͡º) ) -RealityPublishing
  6. Yo, my name is Evil Nightmares. I like murder, gruesome slaughter, and (on occasion) lungs.... eating them, that is. Also flesh and eyes, but that's a whole different can of worms....... Also worms.... ASK ME SHIT!
  7. Narrated on my channel by Obabscribbler The clip-o-hoof range of cooking utensils really made any ponies life easier, but Jenny still managed to drop the knife. It now stood a third embedded in the delicate kitchen floor. "Pony Nuts" she said under her breath as made to retrieve it. "Shall I get that for you?" asked the handsome sales pony standing by the door. "It's fine," she said, easily removing the serrated blade from the cork like surface. "I love this floor, it's warm and soft under hoof, but so resilient. It always comes up clean no matter what I spill on it". This wasn't going to be an easy sell at all. There were all sorts of enchanted floors in Equestria, but he hadn't felt one like this before. He pawed it slightly for a better idea of how it felt. "Have you been living here long miss?" Jenny smiled and stopped cutting up bread for the garden birds. "Only a few months and I'm absolutely loving having my own place. It's a brand new build and I can still smell fresh paint in the cupboards. The little bungalow was the very essence of modern living with a shallow pitched roof and big windows for maximum natural light. The outside was a delicate pink and the front garden still had the odd pile of rubble, giving it a 'nearly there' ambiance. It really was the perfect place to escape from the parental home. It's location on the south side of town was ideal with a railway station near by and only a short canter to the really good shops. It suited her ecological ideals as well, being built on the remains of the old research labs. The 'Equestrian Research Institute Laboratories' had been known as Eril locally and had been a common land mark for many a year. Recently odd things had happened there, with frequent sirens and mass evacuations. The town council had demanded explanations! But instead of getting answers a small army of large unicorn stallions arrived one day and simply levelled the place. A row of neat reasonably priced housing now stood in its place. Jenny finished cutting up her bread and slid it off the cutting board into a small basket. "Back in a minute," she said before picking up the basket in her teeth and opening the back door with a hoof. He could see her through the window with her back turned toward him. He didn't consider himself a thief by any measure, but her purse was bound to have a few bits in it. At the rate he was going the mop sales weren't going to cover lunch and breakfast had been nothing more than a hope. At least with magic he could be subtle about the deed. He kept an eye thought the window and felt for loose change as his horn glowed softly. Carefully he levitated the contents from the bright blue purse and looked to see if there were any 20 bit pieces. As he checked the embossed figures of Celestia and 'Star Swirl The Bearded' stamped into their surface he felt the strangest sensation in his hooves. Dropping the cash he looked down to puzzle at his now longer fetlocks, which now touched the floor. All too soon he realised it wasn't his hair that had grown longer, but his hooves that had grown considerably shorter. They were also stuck! He tried to free one and then the other. Leaning and weaving they stayed rooted to the spot. Not even an attempt at bucking did any good. "A Little help here please," he called out. "I seem to be in a spot of bother". Making up some story about why he had angered a floor that was also a security system was going to be tough. But if he could play it straight he ought to be fine. This kind of fast thinking was a normal day in the life of this unicorn. It did seem odd that a sweet little mare needed a burglar proof floor? "I'll be there in a minute," called Jenny, oblivious to her kitchens antics. "I'll just grab these berries before the birds do. Have you time to stay for Lunch?" He was now fairly sure the ground was going to give way under him until he disappeared. It was now up to his knees and the kitchen cupboards looked ever imposing around him. A cold seeping sensation was now creeping into his legs as a strange sort of cramp set in. This was truly ridiculous situation and surely the spell was only there to trap somepony until the police arrived? It was all happening way to fast. He struggled violently as electric shocks started to penetrate his skin. He tried to tense his body muscles to keep his belly out of harms way but it wasn't doing any good. Taking a deep breath he made a last ditch attempt at freedom by using his head to push down. He regretted his last move as soon as it failed to achieve anything. With his muzzle firmly locked to the surface he tried to shout out. But you can't shout for help if your mouth is half morphed into a solid surface. His eyes darted left to right as his brain screamed for assistance and for air. The cold was now entering into his body as gravity relentlessly pulled his hooves down and down into the solid earth. It had only been a couple of minutes since he first realised he was stuck, yet his eyes now looked out horizontally across the cursed floor. The smart white cupboards now looked like tower blocks looking over a city street. The look of horror they displayed was in complete contrast to the gentle shafts of sunlight dancing on particles of dust as they floated lazily past his ears. His lungs were now screaming for nourishment. His back twitched as his body made its last efforts to hang onto the living world before it blinked from existence. The last of his mane and tail were now being sucked in as Jenny returned with the basket full of ripe berries. "Are you still here?" she asked, placing the basket on the table. She was sure she had seen a few strands of black tail hair on the floor when she came in, but both her visiter and the hair now seemed to have vanished. "That really is a swizz," she announced with frustrated tone and a sigh. "I guess it's lunch on my own again." Team Idris
  8. RECEIVED_ A particular tumblr blog has been posting several creepy pictures of Princess Luna, alone on the moon. Alone, these seem pretty creepy. However, this in't just another 'Edgy' tumblr blog. These creepy posts have come with encoded messages. Over the past few days, me and several others on /mlp/ have tried decoding the puzzle. I'm not very educated in secret messages and decoding, but I do know a few clues that may get you guys started on a track to solving the puzzle, and maybe finding more about the story of Loona. (May contain 2spooky4me images and videos) The first thing I know of is the post of numerous 1's and 0's, which seems like binary. This however, is not binary, but some sort of ascii art. The second thing is the radio transmission. This may seem like a creepy jumble of waves, but I believe it may be some sort of image that has been made into a sound signal. I've tried using a RX-SSTV decoder to turn the signal into a digital image, but I have had no luck. Some of it I think is morse code, or maybe binary. I'm not very good with either of those, so I'll let you guys have a try. - ../.. /. – –/- //— -./ .. … ./-/ .-.. .-.. .//- .-. — ..- -. -///.. ..-/ …/// I've also heard if you drag some of the things around such as the cresent moon, it will reveal secret messages and stuff. That's all -Rogue
  9. I am going to write a pony grimdark story, but as I'm basically immune to even Cupcakes, I don't realy know what would be Disturbing to the masses. So as you answer this question you are also giving me insight into a grimdarks Structure. Be sure to include as many ( site appropriate (nothing sexual)) things that would disturbe you. Also as a side note, any one that can create/suggest a Grimdark/creepypasta that disturbs me will recive bragging rights from me, and a chance to preread my story when I finish it. Have fun with that. You can suggest the names of Non site appropriate stories so I can look it up myself, just do not put any links to any non site safe stories. Here's a few that I've read that I consider grimdarks: Grimdarks read Cupcakes Rainbow factory The cough A puppet to her fame Cheeralie's garden Rocket to insanity The experiments of twilight sparkle Silent poniville 1-2 Awoken Pregasas device Hard reset Where's the beef? ( only because of unnatural eating habits ) Shattered

  11. Hello, and welcome to a little project I've wanted to do for a while. In case you don't know, this is a Choose Your Own Adventure style story. I will begin by giving you a piece of story and then you choose what happens next. I'm intending for this to be a little loose with the CYOA definition, I might give you guys a bit more choices here at the beginning, and then less later. I don't know. We'll have to wait and see. Also, if you've never heard of Fallout Equestria, go check out the original story. Sound interesting? Let's get started! Heavy rasping breath escapes your lungs. Every moment of inhalation is agony, exhalation is torment. With effort, you manage to open your eyes just enough to see dust motes floating in the light bleeding through cracks in the wall. You roll off the bed you've been laying on for... How long has it been? You shake the thought away, and proceed to take in your surroundings. The walls are made from old sheets of metal, reinforced and held with wooden crossbeams. A door has been built into one wall to your left. Some boxes are stacked next to it. In front of you is an old, dirty mirror above a rusted sink. You realise how dry your mouth is and walk over to take a drink. After cooling your throat with the brown liquid, it can't be called water, you look up into the mirror and turn your face. Who do you see? Please describe what you look like, including coat and mane colour(s), cutie mark, race, eye colours and gender. Results will be a mixture of what you have voted for and/or personal pick due to setting constraints. Feel free to add a little backstory to your character as well.
  12. I have been wondering this for a while now and from seeing the street fight in the Canterlot wedding, the fight against Sombra and them completely blowing him up, Twilight blowing up a plant's head on Princess Twilight, the Celestia vs Nightmare Moon fight, and who can forget the Tirek vs Twilight fight? I personally want to know what you guys think because to me, I love dark stuff and I like it when the ponies gets violent because it makes them look so much more bad ass (Don't judge me) and seeing how much violent it got over the seasons, I'm pretty sure they are capable of spilling a lot of blood or do you think they are weak push overs?
  13. There are a lot of really good fan-made games, like My Little Foundation: Containment is Magic and My Little Investigations. Both of these are really BIG projects that took months or years to complete. Thinking of them made me wonder: Why isn't there a Rainbow Factory game? The story presents the perfect storyline for a horror game. The way I see it, it could be like this: You, the player, are Scootaloo escaping from the Rainbow Factory. You have to navigate through the facility without being caught by any of the guards. If a guard sees you, he or she will chase you and you have to either hide or (later in the game when you find a weapon) fight back. It's your basic horror game, except instead of blood splattered everywhere there's puddles of rainbows. To escape, you have to go through every floor until you find the exit. As well as the guards, there's Rainbow Dash herself, who pops up when you're near the end of the floor and tries to stop you. Since you can't beat her in combat or hide from her, your only chance of survival is to get to the exit before she catches you. Once you see the exit, you'll only have a few seconds to react before she spots you. But once you get into the elevator, you're safe until the next floor. There are also a lot of imprisoned foals all over the facility. You don't HAVE to rescue them, but the more foals you rescue the higher chance you have of getting the good ending. The good ending is where you escape and destroys the Rainbow Factory in the process. The bad ending is where you are just about to escape, but Rainbow Dash grabs you at the last minute and you get a cut scene of Scootaloo being killed. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea how to make a game like this, but hopefully some people in the fandom realize the potential. So, what do you guys think of my premise? Anything you want to add? Would you play a game like this?
  14. Now, Evil Nightmares (OC) is living up to his name a bit more. I was bleeding alot today, but was able to stop it with tape. So when i was cleaning up all of the blood on the floor, i saw an odd pattern in the blood, and i wanted to draw it. That was the outcome. ~enjoy
  15. Can you take a MLP FIM fan fiction seriously? Seriously as in fan fiction that deals with more mature themes (more mature themes than the story would deal with) like death, war, suffering, war of survival, tragedies and general hardship? Not that you would get upset about the story, but you won't just dismiss the entire story, just because it has MLP Ponies in it. Or would the fact that MLP FIM is a cartoon, therefore you can't take any 'serious' MLP FIM fiction seriously? Personally, I can take a MLP FIM story quite seriously (if written well too) as long as it doesn't directly reference its a cartoon in the story.
  16. Warning! Semi-Grimdark content ahead! Proceed with caution! I really liked Coco Pommel. Nuff said.
  17. What is your opinion on Grimdark MLP art, FANFICTION, or Music in the Brony Community?
  18. So this is a pic of an OC that I made. Basically he's a serial killer who kills ponies who act in a way that he finds disgusting. In a way, he's kinda like Jigsaw meets Jeff the Killer. Also, he has a Tumblr blog, if you're interested. If you like, check it out:
  19. So what is your favorite creepy pasta?the infamous jeff the killer? or maybe the disturbing zalgo posts? (also when you state yours please post a pic if you can )
  20. Before I get to the bulk of this discussion, I just want to throw in a warning to those people who get curious. This discussion may contain mention of disturbing fanfictions, things that make Cupcakes look like cupcakes. If you are easily tempted and don't like reading scary/disturbing stuff, I suggest you leave now. Now that we're all good... I will wonder until the end of time exactly what kind of a mind it would take to create something quite so twisted, but i'm not making this thread to whine. My question to you is: Have you ever read a disturbing MLP fanfiction? And before everyone shouts Cupcakes, let me explain. Cupcakes is scary, terrifying to some extent, but not disturbing. The scenario comes out of nowhere, there's a lack of depth that suggests the writer wasn't quite deep into the MLP universe, and the characters aren't believable; you could replace Pinkie and Dash with any other character from the whole of fiction and aside from the body chemistry involved, little about the story would change. I'm talking about fanfictions like Cheerilee's Garden; one's that are so extensive in detail, no random person could have written them just by looking at an episode. One's that have situations so believable and thought out, you could realistically imagine that character changing in this. Stories that blend in with the canon so well you know that the person that wrote it had to be a fan. If you've happened to read any of these, feel free to talk about them below. What were they about? What about them made them disturbing? Did you ever manage to see the show the same way? If so, how? Am I taking this too seriously? Anything regarding disturbing fanfictions is free to discuss.
  21. I'm using this song for the final boss theme and I have my ideas about what's this song is about but I want to hears what you thing this song means. music link lyrics
  22. Vector graphic, made into a .png, made with Flash pro cs5
  23. I have only read a handful. Cupcakes, Rainbow Factory, Cheerilee's Garden, Scarlet's Harvest, and Sweet Apple Massacre. I don't personally think Cupcakes was THAT bad, and I don't think it deserves all the hate it gets. Sure, it was pretty gross, but I think Sweet Apple Massacre was creepier. But, my favorite of these would probably be Cheerilee's Garden/Scarlet's Harvest. They're interesting enough to make you want to keep you reading them, and dark enough to put you on the edge. What's your favorite Grimdark fanfic?
