Trying to see how many ways I can hurt Applejack, apparently.

This story is a prequel to But Would Anything Matter?


Littered around Ponyville are stains of blood, an’ more an’ more bodies. Ponies I knew. Ponies I called friends. Ponies who would, dependin’ on how much of ‘em is left, will probably get up and do the same to anyone else left alive. I wish I could stop it, but I can’t bring myself to desecrate their bodies like that.

Everypony who was able to evacuate is gone, I think, an’ all that’s left is me an’ Dash an’ the other… the other things that are lurkin’ about.


Written for a Quills and Sofa’s Speedwriting Panic. The prompt was Fangs!

Damn, good job with this one. It's really chilling and to an extent realistic in how the characters would react to the event.

Howdy, hi!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere of this. The absolute desolation of the characters over the course of a mere 1500 or so words. It's heartwrenching watching everyone fall leaving only two, while also knowing it was hopeless seeing as how I've read the sequel. An excellent prequel to But Would Anything Matter?

The horror is intense and brief, tension-ridden, and a quick flash of gorey action. I enjoyed this. It's depressing but in a good way. Solid prose and building of the scene. That moment when the first of them fell and everything went to hell was glorious in the saddest way possible.

Excellent read, thank you for the fic!
