It's not entirely fair to call it my ONLY grimdark story, as I have a very brief short on cannibalism. However, I want to talk about a story of mine that I never felt got enough love.

Black Bones never got the recognition I felt it deserved. I submitted it to Equestria Daily after writing it, and it was rejected as too graphic. I contested this, as EqD had also, in the past, featured far less crafted, and no less horrifying stories. In particular, the infamous Cupcakes. So I pouted, but at the end of the day, it was no use.

Black Bones was my attempt to flesh out the backstory behind the Story of the Blanks computer game, which had left an indelible impression on the fandom. I thought that here was a chance to take my passion for the grotesque, and put it to use in the community, which at the time, I was still very much invested in. It's probably no coincidence that this story, violent and full of sorrow, was written within a month of a suicide attempt. Greyhoof was very much a portrait of my own self-loathing, my own cowardice, and my own realization that the world would never be the same for me.

So, give it a read. I promise it's worth it.

Occasionally a horse,

DD
