Big Oof

It doesn't hurt, it feels fine
The trivial sublime
I'd like to turn off time
And kill my mind
You kill my mind
Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody's coming to get me
Just say you never met me
I'm going underground with the moles digging holes
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
But if you're bored then you're boring
The agony and the irony, they're killing me
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well

This is a brilliant little piece! I love it!

I'm not 100% sure how to interpret this, but I like it :)

How many times will it take I wonder.

You know on second read-through, this is actually hopeful, because according to

And the only way they could actually undo the spell was if their future selves found a way to funnel messages into the past after breaking free." She gulped. "Transmitted instructions. Solutions. Warnings to required actions.”

If she's getting these warnings, it must mean she escapes eventually.

She's caught in some sort of hallucination or coma or dream that her future self is trying to break her out of.

One of these days Starlight needs to deal with her abandonment issues. Seems like maybe she eventually does! Maybe. Eventually.

Pshaw! Everypony gets those kinds of messages whenever they are in the Great and Powerful Trixie's presence for more than a few minutes. That's why she's a traveling magician. And sometimes a traveling-really-fast-in-front-of-the-mob magician.

Well, if she doesn’t wake up, Paradox.

That was... Horrifying. It certainly was interesting, though.

I think that was just the kinda story that would work for a horror movie, just extend the time loop and make it a bit more like Doctor Strange and The Multiverse Of Madness.

I’d love to see more stuff like this, has a Groundhog Horror Day feel to it. Well, if it even existed, anyway.

After reading through this a second time, this is pretty damn dark.
It seems Starlight is stuck in a timeloop.

“And the only way they could actually undo the spell was if their future selves found a way to funnel messages into the past after breaking free." She gulped. "Transmitted instructions. Solutions. Warnings to required actions.”

Seeing how Starlight keeps getting instructions to kill Trixie in some horrific manner, I can only assume that Starlight in the future found out how to undo the spell after going crazy.

For a brief moment, I thought she was baking Derpy...

My hypothesis: In the future, Trixie dies. Or maybe she just goes to Manehattan, and Starlight is really petty, and still reckless with magic. Starlight casts a spell to hold onto that moment before she leaves, preventing time from moving forward. Or, she creates a magical dream for herself after Trixie is gone. Now she needs to escape the dream or stasis, by killing Trixie. It’s the only way out.

I can’t fully understand it (by nature, because it’s open ended), but I did like the story.

Wait, hol' the fuck up

As has been noted, those intrusive messages actually imply a happy ending. Still, brilliant work on capturing the surreality of dreams and the slowly dawning horror of the situation. Making themuffins bake in reverse was an especially nice touch.

Dark but intriguing

Okay, I don't know how, but I've missed the 'Horror' tag. As a result, I found a lot of messages on dealing with Trixie funny. Dark comedy fits Starlight like a glove, for some reason. Still, it was a great read. :derpytongue2:

P.S. Somepony has to fix the clock on Twilight's kitchen.

Oh, I see.
Well...
That's heart wrenching.

I'm not sure where the "you can't read in your dreams" thing originated from considering I've read in my dreams before.

Just do what they say. Maybe the Matrix can be escaped after all.
