Dark, Scary & Depressing 248 members · 518 stories

A group for stories that are dark, scary or depressing- in other words, grim dark.

The stories here can be blatant gore (cupcakes), gore relying on a thick plot (the secret life of Rarity/Rainbow factory), morbid tragedies and post apocalypses. Pretty much anything that has a 'dark' vibe around it.

Rules for uploading stories:

*Your story must have the atmosphere of a dark story. This means no soft sad-fics with a slice of life tag. Morbid comedy is allowed, however.
*Upload your story to the correct folder and/or sub folder.

Hi, I just joined bc I wanted to see if I could have some help finding a rather grim dark story I read years ago. Is this okay?

Hello everyone! I just joined your group and thought it would be polite to say hi. I hope you are having a wonderful day full of inspiration. :pinkiehappy: Could some of you perhaps help me with a question? See, I used to be a bit of a loner when it comes to writing and only recently decided to find out what the groups on FIMFiction have to offer. So… what usually happens in a group like this? I understand you can add stories to folders that correspond with the kind of story you have made. Can I do that right now or must I ask for permission? Should I announce my stories as well? Do you have any tips and tricks on how to make the most out of this group? I hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance! :twilightsmile:

Lots of love, :heart:



I'm a little lost on where a story I'm writing would go in this group. It's an alternate reality in which Nightmare Moon had beaten the Elements of Harmony in S1E2, and now Equus has transformed into the dark dystopia of her dreams. It features heavy violence (for example, a Night Guard having her face shoved into a mesh of molten rubber and a few others having their scalps ripped off by magical evaporation), sensitive subjects such as autism and rape, and is a long, incomplete, adventure-drama story. It currently has over 45k words at just a prologue and chapter 1 long, and I already have 50 chapters outlined and planned. Two and a half years were spent on planning, editing, and solidifying this story's universe. What folder would this story go in? Thanks in advance. :twilightsmile:

Oh goodie. A Grimdark group. Happy morbid day.

I shouldn't be here for my own goid, yet here I am. I like what is not good for me.

This group sounds awesome for a bat pony like me:derpytongue2::pinkiehappy:

367789 Ah, alright, thank you :twilightsmile:

367747 I'd say psychological/morbid from the little bit I read. :twilightsmile:

Under what categories would my fic fall under?
Night Shift

I got a very dark and morbid tragedy called Fluttershy Batwings it has infantacide, genocidal war, and death all over.

Well, here's a good place to put my nasty stuff.
Equus Mortis is my tale of a Ponyville mortician and coroner that fights Nightmare Moon.
Equus Mortis: Malevolence has Equus finding a ball of liquid rainbow in a dead Pegasus. Where will this odd discovery take him?
A Merciful Way Explores the idea of living in the past at the cost of everything else.
