A [Dark] sequel to School Daze? :unsuresweetie: Well, I'll give it a shot.

Honestly, there's no tag for "character-driven horror-inspired" story. Weirdly enough, the FAQ suggests that Batman stories would have the 'Dark' tag. Sometimes I feel constrained by the tags.:unsuresweetie:

Huh, I came on because I got a fic-update notification, and the first thing I see on the main page of the site is this!:yay:
So naturally, I read it right away.

Your writing is as good as ever, I must say. Even though its tagged as dark, it had me laughing at quite a few points.:rainbowlaugh:

my computer is on the frits so I can't read this right now. I'll just have to do this for now.
School Daze - THE very first story I had ever read on this site.
I swear, that story, I have only once found a story that was equal to it in greatness.
You my friend deserve the feature box. I can already tell. :twilightsmile:

Well, which story was equal? I want to read that!:twilightsmile:

932045 Are you sure? It's kinda...weird. :applejackunsure:

Good lord, has Discord joined forces with the Nightmare (minus the Moon of course)?

Because that's what this feels like.


You said there's something you like as much as School Daze. I've kinda been spoiled as to the plot of School Daze, having wrote it. I love fanfic too, remember?:twilightblush:

932213 It's...uh...The Scootaloo Diaries By ImJustAnotherBrony:facehoof:
Please don't hate me. :twilightsheepish:

It was a choice between tagging as 'Dark' or 'Sad." With one, readers assume everyone dies. With the other, readers assume everyone dies. I'd love for someone to suggest a good fit for this one.

Don't worry, I plan to keep the jokes flowing.


How can I hate a fluffy Twilight eating a taco?

932293 Good thing I recently changed my avatar. :twilightoops:
4 days ago it was this.
which probably would have creeped you right the hell out.

This is going to be good.

I hope Ponce makes some sort of cameo.

I've been eagerly awaiting this ever since you mentioned it ages ago. Surely OP will deliver.:heart:

The Riddle Master - Manilla Road

I do love me some psychological horror. Have you read House Of Leaves by Mark Danielewski?

Have I ever mentioned how much I love your Screwball? I have to keep fighting the urge to hug the screen every time she does...anything really.:twilightsheepish: She's adorable.


You'll love this one, then. Being Discord's creation, this is her story. I can't wait untill their showdown.

I don't think I can squee hard enough. :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

this is just, I don't even have words to describe how much I am loving this story so far, <3

Oh, the mind can be a strange thing. Screwy doesn't recognize her daddy Discord? Well, give her time. I'm thinking (and hoping, because I love your Discord) that we'll be seeing a lot more of him.

As for tags, the Dark tag seems fitting, based on my expectations and what I've seen so far. If you don't like the message it sends, why not give it a friend? I've found that the Comedy tag works well with the Dark tag. Especially with Discord hanging around.

Hey, Screwball is missing her beanie in the cover picture. Is this significant? :rainbowhuh:

It's spelt "Tambelon", not "Tamberlon" =P


Thanks! I better get it right; a story I'm working on has a chapter set there.:twilightblush:


Hmm. That was just the vector I used... but I can think of a good plot point now. :duck: Thanks! :fluttershyouch:

He's the main antagonist, the Joker/Freddy of the story. Discord's going to be around quite a bit. :pinkiehappy:

I read Lovecraft. Ambiguous occulty symbols are par for the course. :trollestia:


Is Ponce going to show up? You mentioned the Scoots would show up, and I said I'd figured out a name for the pet raptor. Ponce(Full Name: Juan Ponce de Griffón)

939613 sure let's go with it being something along those lines. :twilightsheepish:

Why is sad Fluttershy sad? :applecry:

If its not an ambiguous occulty symbol, what is it? :rainbowhuh:

932213 This going to be a black comedy? I'm faving this! I'm thinking of doing an "Ask-Discord" account on Deviantart later, and I'm looking for ways to portray him. I going for something like the Joker from Batman the Animated Series. After all, Mark Hamill was best Joker! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

If you think about it, the goofiness of the later Nightmare on Elm Street movies doesn't work with child-killer Freddy but is PERFECT for a dark, BTAS Discord. Heck, I think Discord's pretty dark as it is. For me, his defining character moment is where he breaks Twilight and fistpumps in the air. I see nothing redeemable in him... BUT HE'S SO FUN TO WRITE!

I love the Joker, I love Discord, and there's definitely going to be some similarity.

Darn it! Thought that was a smiling Fluttershy. She's so emo...

An939873 Discord: And Remember Kiddies! When the going gets Tough, the Tough goes Shopping!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! *steals the elements & puts them in a shopping cart after he "discords" the entire Canterlot Castle, princesses and all!*:rainbowlaugh::pinkiecrazy:

She doesn't have a smiley other than the :yay:
She really IS emo. PINKY! Flutters needs happy's!
I may need sleep.

Yes! Finally! A sequel to my favorite fic about my favorite pony, by one of (if not the) most defining pony authors ever! Please excuse me while I go die of pure joy!:pinkiehappy:

This chapter scared me abit...

So, what I want to know is, apparently Applejack found herself a tall, silent type as well, and...one hopes it wasn't Mac :pinkiesick:

... Is it wrong I read the line "This day is going to be perfect, even if I have to stick a muzzle on Red." In the This Day Aria tune? I'm sure that's what you were aiming for, but it's still awesome. Do do do...

-The Librarian

Nightmare on Elm Street:pinkiegasp:? DO I hope:pinkiesad2:? Do I dare:fluttershyouch:? A Freddy Kruger story in Ponyville:rainbowderp:? I must find out:pinkiecrazy:!

Oh, you're doing it right. YOU. ARE. FUCKING. DOING. IT. OH. SO. FUCKING. RIGHT.

Never meant that! Just had AJ realize that, in similar to the way kids may date someone similar to their parent, Applebloom chose a boyfriend who was similar to her only father figure: Big Mac. No incest suggested!

Just wait. Freddifying Discord is so much fun. Picking out the nightmares of the CMC was awesome.

I was tempted to write a cover version....

Wow. That's some high praise. Thanks!
I'll try my best.:trollestia:940811



Your comment went all wibbly at the end there.


Et tu, Paleo Prints? Haha, I guess great minds think alike. And sometimes I think of something at the same time someone much better than me does; Namely this crossover.

I loved the prequel, man, great to see you trying something new with previously established characters.

My god, Prints, you've actually gone and done it. This will be the MOST amazing thing ever.

No Dark tag is going to scare me away! But really, given this story has a strong horror vibe to it at this point, I think the Dark tag is the appropriate one.

I’m interested in seeing where this story goes. Not a whole lot going on right here. Seems the first chapter is mainly setting the scene and characters. Lots of questions being set up in addition to showing us where our main characters are standing. So we will see how this goes. Definently feels like a storm is coming.

Screwball is best pony. That is all.

I may be getting obsessed here. :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:
