The Grimm Reaper

The Grimm Reaper is the writer of the 'Darkness Duology', 'Immortal', 'They Come at Night... Mostly!' and 'Only Bone Deep'. Among others.



This story has been riffed in Doctor and Ditzy's science theatre by Rixizu. You can find it on his user page here

Spike has been missing for three years. Why he disappeared is a mystery to everypony. What caused him to leave in the first place, and why is he suddenly back now? He's acting cold towards his old friends and won't reveal why. He's lost his love for Rarity and is treating everypony he comes across the same way Gilda did.

Opening theme for this story is: Constellations - Sound of the Aviators

Rated: Teen for language and potential sexual outcomes.

Warning: Self-harm is described in this story. If you are prone to self-harm or know someone who is and feel uncomfortable reading about the subject, then I don't recommend reading the story.

That description needs to be more brief, and not a summary.

Some minor edits, including the dialoge with Scootaloo in the previous chapter. Overall, I like it. Just add more beef to this paddy.

Given what we've seen of dragons' nigh-invulnerability to gemstones, steel pins, magma, and high-speed collisions with solid objects, what exactly are the griffons using to attack?

That pic, and that introduction.

you got my vote and fav <.<

keep going.

This is interesting. I want to see where this goes

A rather good read.~ I eagerly await the coming chapters. :pinkiesmile:

Ugh... THE FEELS!!!!!! :fluttercry: This is good, but I'd reccomend double spacing your paragraphs. In other words, once you're done with a paragraph, hit enter twice, not once.

Wow... I knew you were demented, Nunchucks, but damn. I didn't know you had gone that far 'round the bend.

MOAR MOAR MOAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Wandering Wizard aproves of this story. Please continue good sir

This would be a great story if King Sombra wasn't mentioned all the time. Spike's dark magic shouldn't be identical, and it feels like you're writing the story only off the first season 3 episodes and not off cannon story plot or your own plot setup. Otherwise, I like it a lot so far. :twilightblush:

Uh, didn't Racko make a story where Spike was missing for three years?

1616180 Demented? I wrote story about twilight fucking a lobster man, what's demented about that?

I like this so far. I think that this will make a nice Sombra involving story.

Anyways, I'll be following this :twilightsmile:

It was pleasantly dark. It held up to the quality of the SSsonic pic that was used with it. I look forward to more.

Bet Spike regrets roasting one of his allies now. Dude would of been useful in the fight.

Apparently it's a recuring plot element... I hadn't read either stories and also had an idea where spike had been missing three years... Three kind of IS a rather poetic number I guess...

Huh....a grown evil...ish, Spike? Shit count me in, I'm hoping this will be a Spilight but I'm perfectly fine this turns out to be a Spikealoo (Spike/Scootaloo) however I'll warn you right now that I don't do Spike/Twilight mother/son bond so I'm hoping this story is not that...I can deal with them being brother/sister though but yeah.....I'm excited to see where this goes, and Gilda! One of my most favrotie villians, I like this a lot...will read on:pinkiehappy:

its ama-a-a-a-a-a-a-azing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1616097 They don't seem too affected by magic either.

Oh, and yet again the griffons are reduced to violent savages.

GUSTAV LE GRANDE, PEOPLE!! The griffons are CIVILIZED!! :facehoof:

1st As much as I hate it, it was a good choice to make Spike lose.
And then, well, you could add a prologue where Scootaloo is going off for an adventure so the plot would be better.
So far I like this but I think that it needs, and I hope that it will, become better by adding things.

when will we haz moar. you cut it off at the best part...:raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair:

Why do I have a feeling that this is truely Spilight? And why am I grinning like a madman? Because you might do my favorite pairing, that's why. BUCK YES!!!! Also, Spike using shadow magic, now shit is getting real and you have them swear? I bucking love you! (No homo) Also Twilight's thinking of killing herself?

This entire story is making my day, seriously...shit I have to read more, also you know what would sound bad ass....is if Spike's shadow wings were upside down like Samuel from Darksiders the video game, don't you think?

I love that idea....damn, this is crazy, count me in for this very dark and wild ride, I'm honestly suprised he did not take Peewee with him though, damn:fluttershysad:

You ever need any help, ideas or advice, I got your back, I freaking love where your going with this:pinkiehappy:

1616416 As are the dragons but that doesn't mean they aren't predators I'm mean as big as equestria is The griffins and the dragons probably live pretty close causing for some serious territorial aggression. :ajbemused:

you think thats demetented? i think thats hilarious. oh internet, how you've twisted and warped my mind so little. im glad the internet made me realise how crazy i truly am and only improved the madness slightly

Well...so much for living like a king. I'm assuming that he allowed his dark to completely take over and massacred those griffons. Which also explains why he was able to come back. Okay, this story is fav'ed ( as long as the chapters keep coming and the quality isn't affected).

1616378 I guess, strange how three keeps popping up

The first Pony he came across was Rinbow Dash.

Ya messed that up. Sorry man. But the story itself, not bad. Not quite enough depth and funzies for a gold star, but enough for an alarm clock and a book, perhaps?

1616821 Man I see familiar people all over this site!

1616828 where was the last place you saw my name?

While the idea is nice, Spike is completely out-of-character. I understand this is a dark fic, but there is nothing in spike's behaviour that even hints at his usual self. In the show he is a kind of a snarky smartass with a good sence of humor. Nothing of which can be found in the spike you've portraited.

Try to improve! :twilightsmile:

1616316 ahahahahahhahahahaha i found that one histarical, but i find many other thing histarical.

wanna see the crazy within?

I didn't think gryphons were cannibals. Also, wasn't Spike suppose to be a gem dragon?
Good story though, I just wish you hadn't killed the dragons off so quickly!:fluttercry::applecry::flutterrage::fluttershbad::raritycry::raritydespair::ajsleepy::moustache:

1616845 on your page, when I commented on your profile pic

I'd yell "Moar" but I have a mind of my own. Very nice! Well written, interesting to read, different. Sad but good, though the suicide comment bothered me a bit, Keep up the good work, you hath earned my favourite AND my like!

1617058 oh yeah :derpytongue2: I feel stupid for not noticing that

1616270 From what I saw of the episode, the magic isn't necessarily exclusive to King Sombra. However, I'm having difficulty coming up with a reason as to how Spike can even possess that magic.:applejackconfused:

1616285 I'll admit this was sort of inspired off of his story, however, I'm going in a new direction with this. The only similarity will be the duration of time Spike was gone.

I was worried for Scoots a little there

This is good but i swear if the next one is a clopfic im gonna murder in u in ur sleep:flutterrage:

1617175 HOPE YOU LIKE NIGHTARES, HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA, my crazy will make cupcakes look like a kindergardners fucking school kitchen project. HAHAHAHahahahhahaha. i hope your favorite color is blood CAUSE SO IS MINE.

Feces has hit the rotating oscillatory.
