    well...i went to turn on my computer this morning and something was...not right

    seems the hard disk refused to spin up
    so...took it up to the mall and turned it over to Geek Squad so they can figure out whats wrong with it

    whilst i was up there my zebra senses told me to check Toys-r-Us, and what do i find?
    no not a glow in the dark Zecora..

    TWO Glow in the dark Zecoras!

    bought both of em

    so ponythreaders i shall give you all first crack at the extra one if you have been unable to secure one for your very own(they sell out online near instantly whenever they put more up)
    twenty bucks and you pay S&H(retail was 16.99)

    i will make a list of everyone interested and roll a die to see who gets it
    Ponies not only make ME want to be a better person than I was before they entered my life, they make me want to HELP OTHERS be better people too.

    And that is a GOOD thing by any definition.

    Oh, I wouldn't be overly worried, batch #456 is almost certainly flawless probably. I worked out all of the major physical issues by batch #91, and since batch #450 all that's been left is the getting the hormonal balance adjusted.
    On a related note, I'd advise watching for any of the following side-effects: glowing eyes, use of the ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE, general increase in aggression, unwaranted use of the third person tense, rapid mood swings, declarations of deity-hood and/or uncontrolled magical surges. Should any of these side-effects persist for more than 24 hours, you may wish to consider evacuating the general area.

    Fascinating, it would appear the non-pony portions of her genetic code are having an adverse reaction to the retrovirus, causing it to mutate into a more primitive strain. Batch #47, judging by the looks of it. *sighs* Ah well, in all likelihood her regenerative powers will kick in before she completely destabilizes, so the virus is unlikely to have any lasting effects on her.

A group of gamers at College could smell the innocence, and decided to do something about it...

    And it still doesn't justify people being -sick-.

    See, what exactly -is- Gorn? I thought I knew what Gorn was, but if this is it, then I don't know.

    I thought Gorn was Gore-Porn. The viewer is expected to watch this for the sake of -enjoying- the subject material. That blood and guts are produced to thrill and delight. Like a type of power fantasy. Much like regular porn. Except, instead of, for example, shoving metal objects (that may or may not be phalic) into bits of meat and exchanging fluids... well, actually, yeah, much like regular porn.

    Then again, my main experience with it is in games. Ninja Gaiden. Gears of War. Mortal Kombat. Killer Instinct. God of War. And the like. Maybe those games are too tame... maybe I'm not ready for the real thing. But I'm not personally bothered by blood and guts, or limbs being hacked off. I've gotten -that- kind of excited from it before (Orb of Destruction + 100 Ninjas = Pool of Blood and 500 (head, arms, and legs) spare body parts. Awesome). And I've seen people die in real life.

    I'm kinda surprised that Cupcakes is even capable of affecting me the way it did.

    That's how they know that they're wrong for it; because they wouldn't have the guts to do things like that otherwise. How they even get the guts for it in the first place is beyond me.

    The thing is, that's not entirely true. People are capable of doing all sorts of things when pressed or snapped. It's sad, but true, even when the stressor is someone you love. Some times more so, which is even sadder, but truer. It's a fight for those who are slightly unhinged to keep ourselves in check some times, and some times it's easier when you're not fighting someone you're attached to...

    The bigger question is why people read this stuff, why the ones who write really crazy stories get any popularity. And here, the motivations get a lot greater.

    Some people, like the authors, simply want to explore, they want to know about things, even disgusting or awful things.
    .... this all... I don't have a respone for this.

These can be great stories, and they don't all have to end up like Cupcakes just because they're dark.
    .... maybe I have more material I might need to give a try to read. Though I definitely much prefer my stories to be Heroic, or at least a Comedy, rather than a Tragety.

    This is flawed reasoning because extended mental illness obviously does not always lead to murder, but people get uncomfortable with mental illness in general and tend to extrapolate incorrectly, so it's not surprising.
    How is it flawed reasoning? While it -doesn't- always lead to such acts, it is certainly capable of it. That's what makes Party of One scary; it confirms that Pinkie isn't entirely screwed on right. And any sign of instability shouldn't be taken so lightly, because no one, except and sometimes not even the subject, knows what is lying underneath.

An someone decided that the best way to fix the egregious sin, that most terrible of dangers, that sickness that is two ponies in a relationship, by writing a detailed psychopathic murder story. And let's be honest, torturing your mind to dredge up horrible murder ideas isn't anywhere near as bad as letting people think about ponies, like, kissing and stuff. I mean god! Ew! Those shippers are the real disgusting, terrible people.

    It'd be crude satire if it weren't 100% true. I used the terms "movie, art, and story" very lightly.

    Never touching that story. I wish I was the kind of person that wasn't so easily bothered by such things... alas, Will is my weak save.

    Not much of a premise, if you ask me.

    I feel like that would be giving it far too much credit. There are ways to go that far and that deep without being sickening, me thinks.

    While this is true, some aesopes don't need to be brought up. Some issues are best avoided for a show, depending on the type of show.

    .... all the ponies in the show have had their crazy moments, haven't they? Twilight gets desperate to do anything to please her god Princess, Pinkie Pie's deranged without her friends, Dash has crippling performance anxiety issues, Fluttershy doesn't seem to take rejection well (though I personally believe this to be MASSIVELY out of character for her in the show), AppleJack's willing to work herself into exhaustion to try (and fail) to prove a point, and Rarity (like out of character Flutershy) doesn't seem to take rejection well.

    I dunno, that could potentially be one of the few reasons Trixie could possibly get written back onto the show, beyond having practiced her magic and deciding to give the only pony in Ponyville a challenge for most magical unicorn, ala Rainbow Dash vs Apple Jack.

    ... when people write or ship characters like this, is there any emotional or mental connection between them? Or is it always just "X character. Y character. Bump Uglies."

    So far, my thoughts haven't really changed. While there are other shows, games, series, and things that I like much much more, My Little Pony is such a decent show with interesting writing and entertaining characters, especially when compared to some of the more random and crapily done modern day shows, it would be impossible for me to, in all good faith, demonise it.

    So, in a sense, you're half right, since I did finish watching the first set of episodes, and I don't dislike the show.

    So, those of you who believe you have the faintest idea about Ponythread's apparent cosmology, what do you think the major shards are?

    As I see it, so far, the important bits are as follows;
    Spoiler
    Show

    As for the Dark-side shards, the fragments of setting and continuity that tend towards the grimmer or more morally complex end of things, there's
    Silent Night and his cult originate from Stalliongrad. Pony Russia + Zombies + The Nightmare + The Pink One.
    Boffinspark and co (Probably Divebomb too) come from an Equestria that has a vibrant mad-science community and a Celestia who either sees the need for it, or fears the consequences of trying to curb it. Pink One and Discord as major elements.
    Bleakmane's Shard of origin (probably a seperate planet to that which equestria is on) and Maxtronaut's Clockwork-verse probably but up here somewhere too.

    What about the Light-side of the Ponythread Multiverse?
    Do Raz-Fox, Mask, etc come with any implied chunks of setting or repeatedly referenced locations?

    And somewhere outside of all of this there is Sean Mirrsen's multiversal director/administration thing.

    Sounds about right. *ribbit* Celestia is fairly *ribbit* loose with scientists. She's actually the one *ribbit* that helped me get my start on *ribbit* antimatter, and the one in whose *ribbit* service I most often find myself.

Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they *live* elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the center of their heads. ~Terry Pratchett again

Oh, planets may be the place where their body eats its tea, but they *live* elsewhere, in worlds of their own which orbit very handily around the center of their heads. ~Terry Pratchett again

    Actually, it's more that I know it's a good story when I'm still reading it at 2am, and find my normally placid mental state knocked askew by the emotions it has generated ...

    Yeah, I think it was Dash again. Though I think I saw a comic involving Big Mac/Kitchen Sink too.

    Is there any part of a fandom that is worse than the shippers in terms of "what the heck's going on?"?
    Hard to say. What's your opinion on rule34 (in general, not as it applies to ponies)?

    The problem is, whether something is sick depends an awful lot. Brutally murdering your best friend is certainly sick and wrong, but exploring the idea in a piece of fiction or art is not inherently sick or wrong.

    I am personally of the clear opinion that nothing is taboo in fiction. Nothing is off limits. There are certainly things that, if you're at all concerned about writing something worth reading, need to be handled with extreme maturity and care. But nothing is so sick that it can not ever be explored in fiction.

    If I wanted to write a story from the perspective of a foal rapist, I would be well advised to think carefully about what I'm setting out to do, but nothing should stop me from writing it and if my intention is to make people think, to horrify, to provoke controversy I don't see anything necessarily wrong with that.

    Very few people would be able to pull off such a story I'm sure, but that shouldn't stop them from trying because you never know who will pull it off. Sometimes talent and success comes out of nowhere, from where or who you least expect it. Also, just because you're a great and successful author in other areas doesn't mean you could pull it off, but a totally unknown person off the street just might manage it.

    Forcing people who have no interest in such a story to read it would be wrong, of course. And certainly the Internet can be a little too good at throwing such things in everyone's faces without regard for their feelings or wishes. The "welcome to the Internet, deal with it" response is a really bad and damaging mindset, IMO. Sadly it's not something I'd expect to change. The fact is, the Internet is just a medium, it just reflects the outside world. If we don't see this kind of stuff in real life as often, it's because it doesn't spread as easily and because of the lack of anonymity, but it's still there.

    I also want to make a point for the actual moral value of these kinds of stories. Maybe not Cupcakes, because it's a poorly written piece of shock-fiction intended only to provoke, but gory horror involving characters with which you might feel empathy, in this case namely nice, innocent pastel colored equines. I remember vividly as a kid reading a comic series, I can't remember the name or a lot of details, but it was full of gore and monsters, blood and guts everywhere. It was awful, actually, and I'm not sure why they were freely available at the library for kids to read, but then maybe I really do live in a very liberal country where that sort of thing doesn't cause any great outcry.

    Anyway, there was one scene in one story in all those comics that I still remember. It showed a kid who had become a werewolf, and his mom was calling from downstairs that dinner was on. And the story left off at that, with his wicked werewolf-smile as he said he was coming. You could imagine where it was going to lead. Just the thought of that was awful and hurt, the thought of him becoming a monster and eating his own mother. And it stayed with me, like many things, and I like to think it made me aware that I care for other people, I like to think it shaped my empathy in some small way by making me aware, making me feel, making me think and remember.

    That's what I think the value of tragedy and horror and even gore is. It makes us feel and makes us think, it stirs the deepest feelings in us, if it's done well. It may not be something you enjoy, but it can be powerful and it can be positive for many people.

    I don't know what the original or official meaning of that word is, personally I just use it to mean anything that is needlessly gory for the sake of being gory which describes Cupcakes perfectly.

    Hm... maybe I do. And that response is that it makes me think.

    Anarion, you make me think. Thank you.

    I feel like some things are best left alone, but you are right...
    That's what these things do. They make you think

    I don't think it's bad that you're touched by these stories. As I note above, that's the point, actually. You want to be touched by them, you want to cry. At least if you're like me.

    I wish I could have been touched by Cupcakes, because it could have been a great story if it had been more than just an exercise in gore and shock. There's real tragedy in there, but it's never realized. It could have made me cry, if it wasn't because it was so awful it made me laugh instead.

    Quote Originally Posted by INoKnowNames View Post

    On the contrary, I think Cupcakes had a lot of unrealized potential, as I've said above.

    Quote Originally Posted by INoKnowNames View Post

    I'm not giving Cupcakes any credit. The Lecter books are, I'm sure, infinitely more clever. Also the gore is much more spread out, I'm sure. That was my point really, for a story like this to be good it needs more than just gore. You don't have to throw out the gore, you just have to distribute it right and not let it be the whole of the story.

    See above. Very few people may be able to pull it off, that's right, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't make the attempt, because otherwise you won't find that one in a million writer who can do it.

    Li'l question for Ponythread

    What would a good pony alternative to "Oh God" be? As in "Oh God I'm going to be sick!" or something like that. For those times when you really need something strong that conveys your horror.

    There's "Oh Celestia" but it doesn't quite have the same ... impact.

    I like this comic because whenever my daughter comes to me asking me to see something she's doing, I have to sometimes be reminded to just put my stupid adult life down and spend more time with my daughter.

    You could go with "Oh Luna" as well. Shorter and still invokes a goddess. Though I personally liked my coined phrase "For the love of Luna's left hoof".

    In the rare event that I feel some ejaculation is necessary (what with not having used the former phrase in some twenty years), I go with "(dear) sweet Celestia!" I find tone of voice can make it sufficiently impactful.
