Buying trinkets is a-okay. Buying arcane trinkets is questionable. Buying trinkets that open gateways to other realities is a big no-no!
Now, Pinkie Pie must close this gateway by any means necessary. Little does she know, horrors as old as time itself await on the other side, eager to shatter her sanity into little pieces.

Little do the horrors know, they're not dealing with your everyday mare.

Because eldritch horror is a lot less scary when you can giggle at ghosties to keep it away. Written because of a sudden, unexplainable urge, perhaps just a smidge of insight from the Great Ones, mostly because the idea seemed funny in my mind.

Is it funny, though? You'll need to be the judge of that, dear reader.

Fhtagn.

Rainbow Dash suddenly has the most horrible feeling.

Shoggoth has come to Her. :pinkiecrazy:

Later that day...

Pinkie wasn't sure what had happened. She had just wanted to show off one of the "paintings" she brought back, but nopony else seemed to share her enthusiasm.

When she tried showing Twilight, the princess screamed at the top of her lungs and curled up into the fetal position, smacking her head against a nearby wall while muttering nonsense. Rarity collapsed into a drooling, catatonic pile when Pinkie had her view it. She had to stop Rainbow Dash from trying to claw her eyes out, and Applejack froze up like a statue with a look of absolute horror on her face. Fluttershy zoomed into her cottage and refused to come out, while Discord had the biggest "NOPE" expression on his face she had ever seen right before teleporting away.

"Come on everypony," Pinkie said, "I know it's not the best painting ever. But you're treating it like it's some kind of eldritch abomination!"

Hail, fellow Lovecraftian author.

May the Elder Gods favor you, and may your tainted spawn arise and multiply.

Oh, gosh, so many comments out of nowhere. Truly, I have been blessed!

6330648 Shoggy will eventually come to hug us all, so really, she really should have seen that one coming!

6331162 Sounds like something Pinkie would so, for sure.

6331873 Thank you, insignificant cosmic entity!

6331987 May the Great Ones grant you Insight and pudding!

So THAT'S what an Animaniac episode looks like when starring Pinkie! Thank you!

6534596 I object! It lacked an obvious, nurse-related running gag!

Some issues with the basics, especially punctuating dialogue, but the story was fun enough that I could overlook it. I love a good eldritch Pinkie, and this one definitely qualified. Thank you for it. :pinkiehappy:

7074345 We are glad you liked it!

Would you be so kind as to point out an example of this mistake, so that we may learn?

6331987 Ah, member of that faction, are you? Always preferred the Outer Gods' faction myself...

6330648 Why would a Shoggoth target Rainbow Dash? As far as I'm aware, she's unaffiliated with the remnants of the Elder Things... Then again, I never really paid much heed to that faction...

Di-... Did Pinkie just change R'yleh with her mere presence and interaction? Change Cthulhu, the Destroyer of Worlds, and a Great Old One? Grand child (or great grand child, I can't remember which) of Azathoth, the Daemon Sultan, the Nucleus Chaos, The Blind, Idiot God from which All Chaos and Destiny Stems? Who, upon waking from the cessation of music from the daemons playing flutes to keep Him sleeping, will destroy all He created? Damn, Pinkie is OP...

7323945 Her powers over reality cannot be underestimated. A thousand dimensions have felt the power of Pinkie, and no being, be it mortals, true gods, or pretenders, can hide from her dread influence.

It's probably the cupcakes.

And thank you for your patronage, dear reader! We adore it so!

7324664 I shudder to contemplate the consequences of her waking, then talking to, the Daemon Sultan, Azathoth...

7324664 As a side note, I have a bit of a soft spot for Cosmic Comedy & Horror, so this fic hit my tastes in all the right places.

7324664
Assuming, of course, that the True God in question didn't directly create her... in which case He'd have to be the ONE True God of all reality, with these interactions of hers destroying the false titles...

Suddenly her placement in PWNY makes a lot more sense...

8296248
Few things are as direct and deliberate as that, especially among the cosmic pantheons that cut through the reality of each cupcake.

:pinkiecrazy:

Aha, it was mountains of laughter. Thank you OR function.
I read this before but wanted to refresh my memory of it since I’m using it as inspiration for a noodle incident. It is just as funny now as it was years ago. Thank you.

Welp, with those new "souvenirs" The Mane 6, except Pinkie, will no doubt lose their minds soon.
