The Cutie Mark Crusaders are working on getting their black magical cutie marks, but they suddenly find themselves flung into a disturbing underworld. Separated from her friends and so terrified that she can hardly stand, Applebloom comes across the dark queen of the parasites that crawl in the night. The Queen demands "love", and she's determined to get it one way or another. She subjects Applebloom to certain tests as she flirts, with the feisty filly standing up for herself. Can she save her friends?
Please note that there's no gore or extreme violence, but there's somewhat dark content. The excellent "Sweetie's Mansion" by Moon Shooter has been a large inspiration as well as the wonderful "Silent Ponyville" by JakeHeritagu. Thanks very much for reading.
