"Hey, Twilight? Yoohoo, anypony home? I haven't seen you in a while!" Pinkie stuck her head into Twilight's library, and looked around a bit, only to see Kyle, Twilight, and Rainbow Dash all asleep at the sofa. "Oh, you silly fillies! Come on, wake up!" Pinkie poked Twilight's cheek a few times, then prodded Kyle's leg. When neither of them woke up, she started getting worried. "Uh-oh... Dashie! Come on, wake up, something's wrong with Twilight and Kyle!" She shook Rainbow, but she didn't wake up either. "Oh no. This isn't good. Nuh-uh. Not at all. I gotta go tell everypony else!"
Pinkie bolted out of the door, ready to gather all of her friends to see just what was wrong. She had absolutely no idea.
I never wanted any of this.
All I wanted to do was try to lead as normal a life I could in an abnormal land I was trapped in. But I just had to try and play hero all the time. It got me beaten, battered, bruised, nearly killed... And now this. I was falling. Ironic, huh? My entire adventure started with me falling, and that's how it'll end.
"I got caught up in some crazy shit, and this is what I get. I never should have gotten involved with The Doctor, Sean, Torrie... Sure, I made great friends, but look at what the hell happened now!"
I closed my eyes, and hung my head back, focusing on the feeling of air rushing past me, trying to clear my mind. My head was no longer in pain, but I still felt like there was a lead weight in place of my brain.
"How do I get out of here? I'm falling, but to where? Or does this go on forever?"
I didn't know where I was, I didn't how where I was going, and I had no idea how to get out. To put it simply: I was pretty fucked.
"This really is all my fault. I should have just gone home, back to Earth, and been done with it. None of this would have ever happened."
Nopony knew what was wrong. Pinkie had gathered all of her conscious friends that she could find. Applejack, Rarity, and Fluttershy. Sean was... Somewhere, and Pinkie didn't waste time to do a thorough search for him. Fluttershy gave the sleeping trio a look, and didn't find anything immediately wrong.
"Um... They're all just asleep, Pinkie."
AJ took off her hat, and scratched her head. "Yeah. Ah' don't see nothin' wrong here..."
"But they look like they've been like that for hours!" Pinkie stomped her hoof on the ground, knowing she was right. "And nopony sleeps like that during they day!"
"RD does." AJ laughed a little bit at her lazy friend's expense.
"Why won't any of you believe me?!"
"Ah'm sorry t' say so, Pinkie, but yer' jus' overreactin'. They're all jus' asleep, alright?"
Pinkie hung her head. "OK..." The other mares left, and Pinkie tried to think of just who would believe her.
"Wait. Kyle's friends with Princess Luna, isn't he? I bet she'd be able to tell something's wrong!"
The falling just kept going, and it was starting to drive me nuts.
"I'm gonna be stuck here forever..."
I focused on the silence around me, but it turns out, it wasn't completely quiet after all. I heard faint voices around me.
"He... Under control... Spell..."
"I think it's talking about me... Yeah, I'm under the control of a spell..."
"Can't... In... Locked inside..."
"I'm locked in my mind... That must be someone outside, in the real world."
"Free... Himself... Reach... End..."
"There's an end to all of this? That's news to me... So if I reach this 'end' I'll get out of this hellhole..."
Suddenly, all I could see was white, and my ears began ringing. I felt a hard surface appear below me, and I shifted into a sitting position. Then, I blacked out.
"... There's no other way. He has to get out by himself." Pinkie had told Princess Luna about the situation. The Princess was explaining Kyle's situation to Pinkie.
"So you mean he has to save himself to save Twilight and Dashie?"
"That is correct."
Pinkie looked over the three, and her trademark grin dawned on her. "Well, if it's Kyle who's doing the saving, I'm sure everypony'll be OK. He's pulled through some wacky stuff, after all!"
"I could imagine. I'm just worried as to what it is that he's trapped in. For all we know, there could be dark memories he locked away. Something traumatic that he had to go through. And now he could be reliving it."
"That... Doesn't sound very fun..."
When I came to, I was in a pitch black room. After letting my eyes adjust to the darkness, I saw that I was in a small bedroom. Literally, a "bed" room. It only had the bed I was laying on in it. I was back in the castle, which I was thankful for. It was better than just being stuck in an infinite void until I died.
"Ah' think Ah' heard 'im in here!"
(Listen to this)
Applejack was right outside the door, and I had nowhere to hide. I get out of one deathtrap, only to be forced into another. I decided I may as well make an attempt at hiding, and rolled under the bed. Good timing, to, because as soon as I hid, the door opened. I could see orange, yellow, and purple hooves.
"Where is he, then? I've been wanting to experiment on something other than a pony for quite a while now..."
"Ah' coulda sworn Ah' heard 'im!"
"Well, if he is in here... Maybe I could, um, have some time alone with him? I mean, if that's alright..."
"Oh hell no."
"Certainly, Fluttershy. You could do whatever you want, as long as you break his spirits in the process. I don't need any subject squirming around while I try to make cuts."
"Actually, Ah' have an idea. We could get her on 'im, iff'n that sounds good."
"Well... I would rather he be alive, but if he's dead, I could always use the limbs she hacks off. Good idea, Applejack."
(Stop the music)
The three left the room, and I let out the breath I didn't even know I'd been holding. But what'd they mean by 'her?'
"Rarity is dead, Rainbow is... Who knows where, Fluttershy, AJ, and Twilight are all homicidal maniacs... That leaves Pinkie. Oh this is gonna be just fucking grand."
I quickly made my way out from under the bed, and out of the room, being as quick and quiet as possible. The hallway outside was a long one, with two doors on each end. I decided to go to the left.
"The rule of a maze is to always stick to the left, and this place sure qualifies as a maze..."
(Listen to this)
I scrambled into the room, making sure to close the door behind me. I quickly thrust my lantern back out in front of me. The light revealed a scene that was horrifying. I was in a large room, with a long table in the middle, each seat set with utensils and a plate... And each plate had a rotting, severed limb, or a clump of skin, or a hunk of meat, all from ponies. Heads, Cutie Marks, torsos, and any other body parts you could think of were nailed to the wall, all dripping blood, or puss. A large banner hung over the room, reading "NEVER ENDING PARTY." The words were written in blood. I leaned down... And I vomited. I emptied my stomach right there. All the gore, unspeakable things I'd seen, and stress finally caught up to me right there. After I stopped, I wiped my mouth, and looked back up, only to see a pink blur zoom away from me. I heard a voice echo through the halls.
"I'm so glad you could join me... Now we can party forever! You'll never leave... I'll make sure of it... Tee hee hee..."
I heard the sounds of knives sharpening, and I felt my eyes pop open. I regained any energy I'd lost, and I made a mad dash down a hallway. I was throwing open doors, looking for a place to hide, the whole time, mad laughter emanated through the building, taunting me. When I opened the door to what seemed like a pantry, I went inside, and closed the door, making sure to turn off my lantern. I stood there for nearly a minute, my vision swaying, my head throbbing. I eventually began to hear a strange scratching sound, and everything became even darker, to the point where my eyes couldn't adjust, and it was completely black all around me. I felt warmth coming from in front of me, so I switched on my lantern.
I regretted it immediately.
(Stop the music, listen to this now)
I saw Pinkie Pie, but she was warped, and destroyed. Her head was tilted sideways, one eye wide with madness, the other, dangling limply from her skull. Her smile was crooked, and dark, with the intent of murder, and possibly more. Her mane was torn out in spots, the rest hung straight down the side of her head, dark clumps of dried blood all over it. Her body was torn at certain spots, flesh hanging limply downwards, revealing the muscles and veins underneath, and the rest of her body had stitches all over, snaking across her like some sick symbol of sorts. In one hoof, she had a sickle, dull and rusted, caked with blood, and small chunks of meat stuck to it.
"Hi! Wanna play a GAME with me? Hee hee hee! We'll have so much fun! I'll tear you apart, and you'll scream... Oh you'll SCREAM!"
I yelled at the top of my lungs, and shoved past her, slamming the door open, almost tearing it off of it's hinges. I heard hoofsteps not far behind me.
(Stop the music, listen to this now)
"Oh, I love it when they run! It's so much fun to watch them flee and hide! I'll make you BEG for mercy when I catch
I looked behind me, and my vision scattered when I saw Pinkie inching closer and closer to me by the second. I focused on the hallway in front of me, and just in time. I almost slammed into the door I was in front of. I threw it open, and slammed it shut behind me, and started grabbing random bits of furniture around the room, and shoving them in front of the door, building a crude barricade to buy myself some time. I heard Pinkie's hoofsteps slow down to a casual trot, and she casually knocked on the door.
"Oh Kyle... Let me in... I just want to play with you... Please, let me in... I'm just innocent little Pinkie Pie..."
I felt my head throb, my headache worsening. I was going insane from all of these unsettling events. I put one hand on my head, and used the other to keep carrying the lantern, but I sat it down on a table and used my tinderboxes to light some candles, and blew out my lantern to save oil. Pinkie's voice rang out from behind the door again.
"Where's Pinkie Pie~?"
A pink hoof smashed through the door, throwing some furniture across the room, breaking some more. Pinkie looked through the hole she'd made, and looked right at me.
"HERE I AM!"
She continued to beat down the door, and I started to panic again.
"What do I do?! WHAT DO I DO- Wait... A cupboard!"
I opened the cupboard, and luckily, all that was inside was a few boxes, which I took out, and placed in front of the door, trying to buy as much time as possible. I stood in the cupboard, and closed the doors behind me, and just in time, too. I heard the furniture and door splinter and bits slam against the walls, and hoofsteps entered the room.
(Stop the music, listen to this now)
"Come out and play~... I'm not gonna hurt you, Kyle... Come on now, don't you wanna have fun with your old pal Pinkie
I heard her start tapping her sickle on things, and she began to hum the tune of "Cupcakes," which freaked me out so much more. The throbbing in my head became unbearable, and I started to sweat, and I heard crinkling noises coming out of nowhere.
"I'm losing my mind..."
I froze when I heard her sickle start tapping again... It was tapping against the cupboard doors. I felt my heart stop for at least five seconds, and the sickle's blade stuck in between the doors, poking around, looking for me. I silently crouched down, barely avoiding the blade.
"Awww... I'll find you yet! I'm really good at hide-and-seek, you know... Tee hee hee... One, two, Pinkie's after you~..."
I heard her hoofsteps leave the room, but I waited for a good five minutes before emerging from my hiding place, and heading back out into the castle.
(Stop the music)
So, how about that? Extra long chapter for making you all wait so long. And as for what I made Pinkie Pie be like in the Amnesia world... I know, I know, I'm going to Hell for this.
