We'll Get Through It Together, part 2 by Lumdrop We'll Get Through It Together, part 2 by Lumdrop
I just really don't like Cupcakes...

I read the original crappy version way back in the day and read the "spelling and grammar 'fixed'" (spell check doesn't catch everything, dudes...) version a couple months ago, so I decided to do another one of these "Boo Cupcakes" pictures.

After re-reading it like umpteen billion times I have to admit that the flow of the story from one scene to another is pretty well handled, that's about all the good I can say about it.
In the end, the fact remains that Cupcakes is totally deserving of the scorn most of the fandom holds toward it.

Now on to technicals...I'm still not sure if this needs to be mature tagged.
I've been using this standard lately that if it's something that they could show on Adventure Time, then I probably don't have to tag it.
But let me know, I've watched and played a lot of scary movies and video games, so I'm not really sure about what's "too scary" or whatever.
Please pick up my slack for me (^ ^)

Even so though, it's not really a "monster" that the fillies are fighting, it's a story :nod:

The others:


My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic belongs to :iconfyre-flye:, :iconhasbroplz:, and the Hub.

My sentiments exactly. "Boo Cupcakes!" Count me in as part of most of the fandom that scorns it.

Although the very nature of fan fiction allows for anything to happen, I must put my hoof down and say that I cannot support violent and gory re-interpretations of popular children's characters such as what's been done with Pinkie Pie. A delightfully wacky and cute scene from "Party of One" has been redone in disturbing ways that I simply cannot endorse. Thanks for defending Pinkie's honor... and Pinkamena's too.

I always thought that if anyone other than Twily became a pegacorn in the group it would be her anyway.

I never liked Cupcakes either. It ruins Pinkie Pie as who she really is.

I love the contrast between the nightmarish grotesque world of Pinkemena and the undying dedication that Pinkie Pie has to abolish it with the mutha fuckin' party cannon!

Buzz Killington would say "Cure cancer". But I say that there is NOTHING that friendship and laughter cannot achieve!

Well, it might not be able to cure cancer in a "practical" sense, but a laugh and a friend can certainly cure the other side of the coin, like depression, fear, and uncertainty.
It might sound cheezy, but still ;p

Cheesy or not, my mum has cancer and I know that laughter, friendship and any support that she can get are extremely helpful in combating her fear, depression, and impending hairlessness. A friend of hers knitted a cap for her, which I thought was just the sweetest thing ever :iconfluttershyishappyplz:

This is so grotesque and beautiful in it's own way. Part of me loves it, with it's dark parts and tendencies and the other part...well there is no other part. I take my hat off to you sir, you have left me completely confuddled.

Feels like the girls, the canon and the flying element need to be in colour, with a little more colour bleeding into the ground they're standing on, in preparation for part III
This is exceptionally well done.

I refuse to touch Cupcakes on principle. I've heard that Rainbow Factory is more mature... but... there's so much more to get to first, might as well be reading the things I know I'll enjoy, right?
Why not take a look at End of Ponies and see if its something worth putting on your reading list? Its my personal favourite.

Yes the fanfic is disturbing, and I wholesomely agree with you on that. However, does it really deserve scorn and hatred? Its a bit much to assume that Pinkie Pie has been ruined for everyone; it's pretty easy to separate the fictitious, psychotic Cupcakes Pinkie Pie from the lovable Pinkie Pie we all know. That's how I've always found it, anyway.

Everything aside, great artwork!

I dunno, I must be desensitased or something, but I didn't really find it all that disturbing.
Just dumb.

I mean, yeah, I get that part of it's popularity is just that, that it's dumb and unlikely and would never happen, but I still don't like it.
There has been one scene that was totally ruined for me by Cupcakes though in season two XD
Remember when Apple Bloom needed the truth to cure her cutie pox or whatever and it cut to a nervous looking Pinkie Pie?

Yeah, even I walked away from that scene with a "fridge horror"...

"What else didn't she confess... (-_-; )

I fully endorse this picture! Still haven't read cupcakes, but I stay as far away from that THING as possible. <.<;;

On the other side, this drawing is brilliant! I love how both sides are fighting against the story! Because even depressed Pinkamena still had a lot of heart to her. (Just, well, paranoid and depressed.) So I think they would both get behind that cannon!!

But I will admit, that cupcake looks scarier, the more I look at it. D: Excellent work.

Someone gave me the idea that Pinkie adn Pinkamena should have been in colour to transition from part two to part three.
That would have been pretty cool, huh?

I was trying to go for the whole darkness and light contrast thing here, but maybe black and white / colour would have brought out the contrast thing better.

Then again, it could have made the picture look lopsided :shrug:

I'm glad you like it as is though (^ ^)
Thank you ;p

An mlp:fim horror(or comedy depending on your sense of humor) fanfic that involves pinkie pie going insane,kidnapping,and slowly slaughtering one of her friends named Rainbow dash.
Though the fanfic was made at the time of S1 episode 13 it was I think at episode 20 of S1 that it got more popular when one scene of the episode resembled the fanfic's scenario somewhat.

If I recall his/her name was:Sargent sprinkles.If you don't like gore or just gore that includes ponies then you should keep away from that and a few others.
I do however recommend the Silent Ponyville series because its not just pointless gore for the sake of gore but has very sweet and sad story to it.A Timburton-ness if you will.
your welcomed.
