I have no heart and my avatar makes everything sound sexual. Also, It's pronounced "sam-ee".

I started getting a Lovecraftian vibe somewhere a little bit before Fleur was attacked. After that, it shot further and further into that territory of horror, complete with Nothing Is Scarier. When I first heard of a story about Berry in the aftermath of Sleepless, I most certainly didn't expect this. Not that I'm complaining, as this was pretty cool. Nicely done.

Who knew that one little filly's actions could have such long-lasting effects...

So this is the sequel to Sleepless or will it be unveiled later when Manehattan Blues is done?

There'll be another sequel taking place soon after the epilogue of Sleepless in which Diamond Tiara and Babs Seed meet.

Oh yeah... Things can escalate quickly, especially when there's an eldritch abomination nearby...

Thanks :twilightsmile:

I wonder if there is some big conclusion you are leading towards with the combined efforts of these connected works. Can't wait to find out!
Also perhaps it would sound better phrased 'Her free will is what's killing her!'

Just like in Sleepless you never cease to impress.

Good job:twilightsmile:

I wasn't expected that. See ya in the conclusion.

Well that went as well as I would of expected the implications of what COULD of happened in Swarm of the Century episode. Twilight really lucked out in that those parasprites didn't devour pony flesh.

That ending was far from expected though. I was expecting Twilight to have some gui;guilt that she had been responsible for what happened to Berry for not helping.

Great side story. I'd like to see a story on Dusk Dancer someday. Why she moved to Ponyville, how she felt about ponies before all the drama and then learning some pony wanted to burn you alive just because you're different. Your bat-ponies need more stories.

Hmm, I may write such a side story one day...

Swarm of the Century was my first idea. Then I started to think where in Canterlot Berry could hide... Then what else could be hiding there... (the result is something between The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and one of the monsters from Andrey Dyakov's Towards The Light).

4983159 Yeah, that mountain did come much later on down the road. And the cursed souls of greedy unicorns got stuck down there too. Maybe a throwback to that Crsytal Wizard that created the crystal ponies? Who knows. But those caves, that mountain, could hide so many ancient evils and Celestia could be none the wiser.

Much story potential for that place.

The story was fated to be lovecraftian as soon as it was told in the form of a journal left by someone who encountered unspeakable horror. Not that I'm complaining, that was great

Wow, talk about your genre shift. Nice and dark, though, even if the prose is a little clunky.

I was aiming for lovecraftian feeling here. Though the shift was rather temporary (but Manehattan Blues has yet another one...)

That's horrifying

Do the Bat Ponies speak German?!?:pinkiegasp::pinkiegasp:

It sounds vampiric enough (and I didn't want to learn Romanian just for the fic).

7749894 Cool. I also speak German, which is probably why I noticed. :pinkiehappy:

Is it a Tak from Desperation?
It's looks familiar.
