Archeology is a young mare's game. At least, the kind of high-stakes, blood-pounding, death-defying archeology popularized by Daring Do's novelized versions of her adventures. Still, even the more mundane variety is often a grueling laborious task, one best suited for young and limber bodies.

The question then, is how do you know when you're no longer young enough for it?

And, moreover, what will happen to your work when you stop?

Petunia Paleo was alone at home. For the first time in her young life, she was being granted this privilege by her parents, to take care of herself for an entire evening. And this newfound freedom meant watching a horror movie on TV and reading horror stories in the world wide web all night, of course.
Because what else would a filly do once the watchful eyes of her parents are gone for a night?
But in this night, Petunia should also learn where young fillies like her aren't supposed to look.


A Petunia Paleo horror story for Nightmare Night. Tagged "Alternate Universe" for a different look of Petunia's house and the existence of the Internet in Equestria.

This story is a sequel to Filly Cheesesteaks


In Equestria, it's Nightmare Night. On Earth, it's Halloween. For ponies on Earth, adapting to Halloween wasn't difficult. Costumes, spooky decorations, and candy? They may have a different name for it, but it's celebrated very similarly in both our worlds.

Trunk-or-treating? Okay, that's a new one for the ponies.

Trick-or-treating antics with a trio of rambunctious fillies. And Minty. Expect a corn maze and even cornier jokes. Some of which are actually about corn.

While this is a sequel to Car Wash and Filly Cheesesteaks, it's not necessary to read either of those stories first.

At least I like cheesesteaks...

Smolder might have stayed in Ponyville out of solidarity with Gallus, but that didn't make the winter any more enjoyable for her. Indeed, if what she just saw is any indication, it's going to be horrifying.

She's right. Just not for the reason she expects.
