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.


This story is a sequel to Life is Magic

In what feels like an instant, we lost everything.

We were happy, unsuspecting, peace-loving creatures caught up in something beyond our control or understanding. There was no way we could've prepared ourselves for what was to come, let alone do anything to stop it. What was supposed to be the celebration of the Sun we all love and revere, became a horrific whirlwind of violence and fear and insanity. And that was when our world changed—when we changed.

In the aftermath of the Collapse, nothing remains but monsters, madness, and the scattered remains of a peaceful age now lost to us—or so we thought. But in reality, there is still hope for something better. In the all-consuming darkness of this new era, the embers of Harmony still exist. The light is small, but it burns with a resilience that will not allow it to be snuffed out so easily.

All that's needed is a spark—something to stoke the embers into a roaring flame that will bring us out of the darkness and back into the light of Harmony once again. In the aftermath of the Collapse we are lost, we are suffering, we are cursed but not all of us are without hope.

Poor AJ, lycanthropy's always a bad trip.

This... was an unexpected start, but then again, it's supposed to be dark.

Oh nice to see the sequel already, I do really like the monstrous descriptions of the different Transformations, like AJ that we have already scene, I wonder how other regular ponies are handling these changes in the meanwhile and copping with their new appendages. If I ever get some more free time I might just do some of them. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff, I hope like your horror angle in your stories.

So, like, i totally don't remember what we stopped at. Can i have a quick recap?

So it's not like dead goddess don't have her old power, right? She just don't remember how to use it. Like you can't solve math questions without remembering formulas.
But she can get it back, much faster then from scratch.
She did manage to defeat old fart once before at his full power after all.
Now, where does Discord falls into this?
Would we have Chrysalis here? She sure would be much nicer this time, considering changelings are doomed now... Unless, of course, they now eat something else, which is highly likely, and probably highly gory.

It seems Equestria wasn't the first world to be subsumed into the dark...


Indeed. Or perhaps the Black Dimension was not always what is is now, and was once like Equestria itself. Perhaps it is even an alternate Equestria. The "Dead Goddess" was once Twilight Sparkle, after all. Then again, maybe not. So hard to tell with Eldritch Abominations and Lovecraftian worlds.

Edit: Applejack's not going to be happy her hat is missing. :rainbowderp:

Nice, I have no clue what is going one but I am curious to see where this leads to.

I eagerly await the next chapter

Hope to see a new chapter soon!^_^

Hmm... things are interesting.

Did Luna leave behind a... hat, by chance?

Thank you very much for the update!

We've forgotten the hat Applejack!

Has Applejack really been reduced to "pony with hat" in our collective consciousness? No matter, she needs that hat back.

I just read both these stories in two big ol' sittings, and now, my bum sore, I must implore you for more! :trollestia:

But actually though, this shit is great, ponies ascending to Godhood, gore, horror, corruption, all that good stuff, its all here!

Thanks, glad you're enjoying the story. :twilightsmile:

Still working the next chapter but in the meantime you can read what's essentially the prequel to this whole story here. It is full on Lovecraft and I'm not sure if it's your thing or not but the story is complete.

Oh hell yeah, I'll get reading that right away

Fantastic! What an excellent read! I can NOT wait for more haha. Onwards!

Hope this story is ready to update soon.

I'm very eager to see where this goes.

Have something special planned but I need more time. Soon though... soon...

Ah, the return of the hat. Most excellent.

In a world of horrors a little bit of home still persists... just like AJ it's time to move onwards!

And here he is. I was wondering when the old snake would turn up...

The Godzilla Threshold was actually crossed by the Collapse itself; Discord only stayed stone until Harmony could free him.

There’s a key difference between subverting expectations and flipping the table. A difference between turning society on its head and making society a mute point. Discord understands this very well and I can’t quite wait to see how our teacher shows the line between noise and art. Onwards! To a wonderfully chaotic world!

Is the story in hiatus or cancelled?

If any of my stories were on hiatus or cancelled, I would've flagged them as such, but there's currently only one story that's under hiatus and it's not this one.

Good to know, is only that some authors are a little lazy and leave it as incomplete even after years happen and they are not going to continue

Oh no, if I ever decided to quit a story or stop writing altogether I'll make sure to let my readers know.

We're still in the stage where we have more questions than answers. Given the overtones and undertones of eldritch horror, I'll be mildly disappointed if we ever manage to leave that stage.

Yaaaaay an update :pinkiehappy:

Glad this story hasn't died.
