I discovered My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic when I was maybe 10 or 11 years old. I never really got into the show itself, funnily enough. Like I enjoyed the few episodes I have seen, don't get me wrong, but I never really watched it. What I did enjoy, though, was the fandom. Yes, one of the most infamously horrible fandoms in history, I absolutely adored. Still do, if I'm being totally honest. Hell, I used to be active on Derpibooru - that's evidence enough that I'm a shameless ponytard. XD
As fucked up as the brony fandom can be, a lot of awesome creative stuff has come out of it. HOWEVER! This page won't cover most of the amazing works this fandom has to offer. No, this page is dedicated to the more spooky scary side of things. ouo
Most people associate Pinkamena with Cupcakes, and draw fanart for the fic with a straight-haired Pinkie, however this doesn't make chronological sense. The episode Party Of One came out in April of 2011, meanwhile the fanfic was posted on /co/ in January of that year, only a few months prior.
When the fanfic was shared on Equestria Daily, MLP's most well known fan site, it was categorized as [GRIMDARK AS FUCK], and was "legendary for being the most brutal and disturbing pony story ever written." However, that title was given to Sweet Apple Massacre once it made its debut in June 2011 for... obvious reasons (if you know, you know).
I've drawn Cupcakes a lot of fanart over the years. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. XD The sheer amount of gutted pastel ponies... o_o; To view them in their *ahem* "full glory", right-click, and select 'open image in new tab', or your browser's equivalent function.
