“I'm throwing caution,/What's it gonna be?/Tonight the winds of change are coming over me.” -The Killers, ‘Caution’

At the Ponyville Farmer’s Market, the Cutie Mark Crusaders find a strange chicken talon that can grant them whatever their heart desire. Despite the warnings from the merchant about the price they each may pay, the fillies are excited for their wishes. What could possibly go wrong?

Ah. Is this based on the monkey paw that grants wishes but in a very twisted manner?:applecry:
Those three are going to be in a whole lot of trouble, that's for sure...

It's Discord's disembodied claw, isn't it?

Wow, another Crusaders adventure - it is look really interesting!

Don't wish for a turkey sandwich.

“Ah’m thinkin’ of wishin’ for unlimited cheesecake!” Apple Bloom happily answered.

And this just in: we have the latest reports on the expanding cheesecake ocean. The tide of dessert has now overtaken Las Pegasus, meaning the cheesecake now covers over thirty percent of Equestria's surface and doesn't look to be slowing down or stopping any time soon. Experts are baffled as to what could be causing it. One professor of advanced conjuration was quoted as saying: "All we can say for certain is that this apocalypse will be delicious."

Reminds me of that story by WW Jacobs, The Monkey's Paw

Here we go again. This time with the young six.

Respect your experienced neighborhood dragon!:moustache:
