It's acceptable for fillies to have imaginary friends.
But ponies grow tired of your stories as you grow older.
Fluttershy wishes she was lying.

9/10 the worst story ever written ~ IGN


Cows are nasty, evil bastards and don't let anyone try and convince you otherwise. Vicious monsters. Just as soon murder you as look at you.

Reminds me of a near death encounter with a cow

One almost killed my mum when it landed on her car. True story.

Almost as bad as donkeys. Standing out in those fields, obviously up to no good. Nobody ever believes me. Evil, the lot of them. :trixieshiftright:

5044789 :pinkiegasp: They're in cahoots!

Wow. That was disturbing and it made sense. Fluttershy is afraid of so much because she knows the final experiences of so many. Well done. Thank you for this.

Almost as dangerous as sheep. Every 350 years, there's a minor aerial war. It's like clockwork.

5044918 It'd explain her constant cycling between fear and somewhat less fear too. Sometimes they're everywhere, sometimes they're not.

"Man, it got silent all of a sudden," Pinkie Pie pointed out.

"Yes," Fluttershy said. "Dead silent!"

Rarity frowned. "Fluttershy, what's the matter with you?"

"Nothing," Fluttershy shrugged. "I love drinking cider with you guys in the dead of night!"

"Wait, are we telling ghost stories now?" Twilight asked. "Is that what this is?"

"You're wrong, Twilight," said Fluttershy darkly. "Dead wrong!"

Applejack leaned to Rainbow. "Um, is she always like this when she drinks?"

"Yeah," Rainbow sighed. "Dead on."

Yep. She was at a concert with some friends, in Scotland. While driving back, the road cut through the ground, so they were lower than a the fields either side. A cow landed on the roof of the car, before walking away like nothing happened. If it hadn't been a Land Rover, it might have been a lot worse than it was :rainbowwild:

When they went to talk to the farmer about it, apparently this was a common thing. That one cow had learnt to use cars to break its fall so it could escape from the farm.


:rainbowlaugh: That's awesome! Thanks for sharing.

5046726 good lord I thought you were kidding :pinkiegasp:


Also, I should stop trying to second-guess stories I read. I'm not understanding the last sentence. is it the silence that's an agony to Fluttershy? Why? Does she like hearing the dead ponies?

5070359 Let's imagine you're alone in your house, at night, when you hear knocking at the door. You get up to answer it, and as you do, the knocking grows louder and more insistent, until it's a ceaseless pounding. Then, suddenly, the knocking stops.
Is that clearer now?

Certainly. Thank you for the explanation.

Should i be mildly depressed? or question the very fabric of the universe?

It was a lot too short, but still effective. It managed to be ominous without overdoing it. Generally speaking, a well-written smidgeon of creepy pasta.

This is interesting, and would have been more so if the A/N hadn't given the game away instantly! Nice writing style, especially for such a short story, and a pleasantly creepy atmosphere. Fluttershy's bond with animals is an issue, though, and maybe could have been addressed. Otherwise, good reading and worth an upvote. :twilightsmile:

So a reference to The Sixth Sense then?
