I am a self proclaimed horror and dark fantasy fic writer. You want darkness, death, and despair? You've come to the right place. Also an eternal Twilight Sparkle and avid Lovecraft fan.


My name is Terrence Thurston. I had just gotten fired from my job yesterday and wasn't really sure what to do about it. Was gonna go to a job fair I read about online...

...but then some dude with huge bug eyes, a wickedly long nose, and a creepy-ass grin decided to open a Ye Olde Tavern outside my bedroom door. Why is everything in there blue? Beats the hell outta me.

I have NO idea what the hell is going on... but I'm surprisingly okay with it.

Can't say the same for the purple unicorn, though.

This is basically an original Persona story of my own making using an OC of my own making. Takes place before Twilight heads to Ponyville for the first time.

Cover art done by ankou.

Working on the second chapter as I type this.:twilightsmile:

Will this story have any sex scenes, implied or otherwise, where the woman does most or all of the work?

Nnnnooo.... why would you ask that? I didn't add a sex tag and I changed the rating to T...

"-foal. Whatever," I waved my dismissively, "my point is, whatever might happen I'm sure you'll be strong enough to handle it. And hey, even if you aren't, Spike and I have got your back, right Spike?"

You're missing a hand.

Ah, thanks. I'll make sure he gets a new one.

So lemme guess... Terry's gonna be the one subjected to Rarity's Zone?

Terrence is wearing clothes.

It's practically an inevitability.

Well, funny enough, this story was in my 'Read Later' shelf. Good pace so far, the idea is solid, and the execution has been well done too.

All in all, another interesting story that i'll be keeping my eyes on. Two for two, thats pretty good! Have a follow, my good sir/madam!

It is sir, my good sir/madam and I thank you. You are a scholar and a gentleman/lady.

Thumbs down? No good sir, thumbs up! I never played any of the Persona titles, but Persona 4's Golden anime was beast!

Thanks for the thumbs up!:twilightsmile:

Persona 4 The Golden basically starred the New Game+ version of Yu Narukami btw.

I know, I wanted to see Yu as the most badass version of himself so I skipped the precursor anime all together. (I know, shame on me.)

This is pretty crazy so far. Hope it keeps up after the hiatus is over.

It will. Just need to get my thoughts in order. I have another story to work on in the meantime thankfully.

Whelp. I don't have anything better to do during this hiatus so...
Interesting choice having the velvet room be a tavern when that place is shaped not only by who signs the contract and enters, but also by the journey they will take:

Persona 3's elevator velvet room not only representing the player's journey going up Tartarus, but also his ascension into heaven.
Persona 4's limo velvet room could be seen representing how the player was constantly moving toward a goal that they didn't know all too much about (the truth hidden in the fog with the car stopping when the character is told to reflect on what's happened before moving forward).
Persona 5's jail cell velvet room acting as the player has been wrongly convicted and seen as a criminal by most of his fellow students until he frees himself, moving beyond his past thanks to the bonds made that have helped him grow.

A tavern is meant to be a place of business where people gather to drink alcoholic beverages, be served food, and in most cases, where travelers receive lodging. So currently this place probably represents Twilight's future stay in Ponyville and Thurston's general stay in Equestria, possibly added with the idea that they will receive aid that will end up costing them.

And that is just speculation from over 24,000 words that, well, feel like the prologue since I still have no real grasp on where this story will go or which Persona game it takes the most inspiration from. (A lengthy but necessary prologue? This really is a Persona work. HA!)

But I'm definitely enjoying what has been put out so far, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the story that comes out once the details come together. 👍

Wow, thanks for the acknowledgement. :twilightsmile:

Honestly I myself wasn't sure where I was specifically going with the story at the end here. I realized too late that that the type of story I wanted to write here doesn't lend itself well to my own style of writing and I ended up hitting a wall I have yet to break through -- hence the extended hiatus. I was honestly trying to decide whether I wanted to continue the story or not and the extended lack of feedback until now wasn't really helping my decision.

But then here are you are out of the blue showing interest and commenting on the story. If someone is showing interest even after all this time, then I can't very well cancel the story outright. I've started several stories since this one and I don't know when I'll return to the story, but I will come back to it eventually.

Sorry if it's not what you wanted to hear, but I'm still trying to get my crap together
even with my current stories. Oh, and for the record, I was trying to go for mainly a Persona 2 type of feel combined with some elements from the other Persona games and some of MegaTen games I've played. It was more or less gonna be a bit of a mishmash of MegaTen.

Eh, don't worry about it. I don't have a single public story to my name, I get where you're coming from. I'd gladly have you go with that method than just throwing chapters in to see what sticks.

And thanks for the clarification on it being more about Persona 2/ MegaTen. I don't have any experience playing either but I'm still excited for the characters that I'll recognize and what situations will come up in your story.

And if/when this story comes out of hiatus, I'll welcome it like an old friend (if that makes sense).

I hope this story will continue because it's pretty intresting so far.

Where the HELL did she come from!? Where did she even GO!?

Where the FUCK did she come from, Cotton Eye Joe?

Congrats! Your Twilight evolved into PONYTA!
