Description: And then Fluttershy got a paper cut.
It got up? IT GOT UP!!! I found this one pretty hilarious. Just "see" the actions happening, and you should get a good laugh.
nooooooo not Fluttershy wwwhhyyyyy~
Oh god someone actually wrote it
Quick! Take it down! This is too just TOO MUCH. I understand the Discord Spoilers (abit much) I even can sort of understand Cupcakes. This is just plain wrong.
Hahaha, I knew this was gonna happen eventually. VERY grimdark, blood will run in rivers...
I was waiting for someone to write this.Knew someone would.
See what you have done? There's just no limitation this community. >.<
Oh my goodness! How can you people claim to love these characters, then put them through such misery, turning them into torture victims and serial killers and evil tyrants and war veterans! HAVE YOU NO SHAME, LEAVE FLUTTERSHY ALONE!!!/standard emotional anti-grimdark douchebag rant
No, No Noooo. I must not read, but the TEMPTATION, but FlutterShy oh..my...
I knew this was brewing somewhere!-Minty
Was an entertaining quick read.Spoiler: Nobody Dies or is seriously injured.
I must be missing the grimdark of this.
Was waiting to see this show up
Someone actually wrote this XD?Now Im waiting for an Applejack blueberry fic XD
And to make a long story short, it got infected and she died...
You're all horrible, horrible people.
Well, seeing as nopony died or was permanently maimed or anything, I'm fine with this story.
Fluttershy gets a grimdark tag for this, I shudder to think what word would have to be invented should anything really bad happen.
I have no idea if you all are being serious or not.
Great, now I am going to have nightmare for weeks.
On another note i'm not sure I really liked this story. Im very very picky about comedy fics and I just didn't find this too funny, perhaps it just isn't what i felt like reading.
I died laughing upon seeing the title. I can't believe someone wrote a fanfic about this. Normally I HATE grimdark, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to read this!XD XD XD
The grimdark tag is well deserved. Fluttershy + paper cut = nightmares for the rest of your life
I knew i shouldn't have read this before going to bed! Now i know i can't sleep with all these horrible images floating in my mind. This is gonna haunt me for a long time.
Oh no! Hang in there, Fluttershy!IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE AUDIENCE!?
Odd gridmark tag is odd.
Oh god. I lol'd. So hard.XDYou guys are all wusses, blood is a device used in literature to emphasize the seriousness of a situation. Geddoverit
While it's ridiculous, it's not all that funny. Whosoever wrote this hasn't quite grasped the pacing and timing required for good comedy.
@GaruuSpike:But when her blood literally spewed everywhere...it goes from serious to grimdark, and then rolls over to WTF?
I just KNEW someone was going to write this. For a while I was thinking of writing it. lol
I had an idea for something along these lines. It was going to be called "On My Desk by Monday," and it was basically a compilation of all of the fanfiction Cereal had joked about. Nice to see someone actually do it!
This was hilarious! It was just so over-the-top. XD
I laughed when I saw the title xDDPhoe, I hope you are happy XD See what happens when you do a podcast? :P
Not a very deep story, but an excellent bit of meta grimdark parody.
I just had a silly mid-afternoon chuckle. I needed that, thank you Filler. =D
i must've missed the comedy portion... i've got a sometimes grim/morbid sense of humor and all, but it just kind of fell flat for mei guess i'd give it a meh? not a bad story, but not much to it
Yeah, it's a great idea, but it needs work. It needs, I don't know how to say it, more drama? Purpler prose? It needs to be like the pie fight at the end of Over A Barrel.
Oh, that was...Just what the hay WAS that, anyway?
LOL, do you mean just blood triggers the grimdark tag? Totally undeserved. Dark humor is more a fitting description.The story is lighthearted guys, it's just that the atmosphere is kinda weird O.o I'd give it 3 stars.
Not even remotely grimdark lol.
Read it.I smiled. It's funny :) And don't worry folks, don't let the Grimdark tag scare you off.It's just plain ridiculous xDAnd yes I agree with the above. I would work on the story a bit, to put some more drama in it, but apart from that, I like the structure of the story and the concept :)Definitly worths a read :)
@Tosxychor You'd be surprised. I've seen someone say a story needed a grimdark tag simply for containing the words "horn/wing/head rot" and having Pinkie scoop bits of her head into several bowls off-screen.However, a paper cut is totally justified in having that tag. One can only wonder the absolute fear and horror going through Fluttershy's mind. XD
Mmhmm... I chuckled a little. Way over the top.
Yeah, it's caught somewhere between the pseudo-grim of OAB, and the hyperbolic absurdity of 'suddenly, oceans of blood everywhere!!!' It needs to be one or the other.
XD Crap... I was 2/3rds finished with my story on this same subject. >>Oh well. I suck at writing anyways. XD
I love this thing. I was only confused a little, and only until a quarter way through.
Fluttershy... Papercut... Grimdark comedy? Ok i definitely need to read this when I get home...Fluttershy... Papercut... Grimdark comedy? Ok i definitely need to read this when I get home...
So happy that someone actually wrote this XD
THIS IS THE STORY OF A DAY WHERE THERE WAS ALL THIS BLOOD. A MAN WAS WALKING AROUND AND BLOOD STARTED COMING OUT OF HIM EVERYWHERE. THERE WAS SO MUCH BLOOD THAT IT FILLED UP AN ELEVATOR. HE WENT TO THE STORE AND THERE WAS JUST BLOOD ALL OVER THE PLACE! PEOPLE WERE SLIPPING IN IT AND THEY WERE ALL GROSSED OUT. HE TRIED TO GO SWIMMING AND ALL OF THE SHARKS WENT NUTS AND BITTENED EVERYBODY. HE GOT CHASED BY ALL THE VAMPIRES EVER. ONE TIME THE BLOOD GOT A KID AND A DOG. AT THE END OF THE DAY EVERYONE DECIDED THEY WOULD SEND HIM TO SPACE SO THAT HE WOULD STOP GETTING BLOOD EVERY WHERE. THE SCARIEST PART IS THAT THE MAN WAS YOU!!! (OR HE WAS A LADY IF YOU ARE A LADY) AND YOU FORGOT THAT THIS HAPPENED.
This is beyond perfect.You three blogponies need to come up with more silly story ideas.
The Horror, The horror...
It was cool, I guess...But the way you write is pretty confusing. I feel like you should have just told the story straight, not bounced in between times.
as soon as i saw the title i laughed my head off
A story about misunderstanding, i guess the grim dark tag represents the use of the word blood.
I've waited so long for this to finally show up after the first mention of it.
THE SCARIEST PART IS THAT THE FLUTTERSHY WAS YOU!!!That was...something. The idea was sort of interesting, and I thought the zombie horde fake-out was amusing.It all just fell apart for me when Fluttershy still insisted on going to the Mayor while gushing blood everywhere. I don't think she'd ever knowingly inconvenience that many people. It might have worked better if the blood flow increased gradually, allowing her to shrug it off as insignificant.Buuut...I guess this isn't the sort of story where that matters, is it. The absolute, ludicrously over-the-top blood gushing is the whole point. So...meh. I don't know what to make of it.
What in the name of Celestia is wrong with you guys?!First it was Fluttershy goes to hell, and now this. I hate you all
Great title, but the story itself wasn't really funny. It's ridiculous, but it didn't make me chuckle at any point. It was still a decent read, kept me interested in how Fluttershy's blood flood would end.
OH CELESTIA! There was blood EVERYWHERE!And it is hilarious!
of course it happened... lol. i wonder though, before reading is it going to be facepalm-or rather facehoof, for stupidity that we like.
What... I...Huh. Alright, then.
XD this was great
FUCK YES I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS
sigh you guys need to watch what you say in those podcasts! lol
I seriously thought that Rainbow Dash was some kind of zombie at first when it mentioned her knocking on Fluttershy's window! XD
Fluttershy get's a paper cut.-mfw grimdark tag.LOL?
Let's see...Grimdark...and comedy. A Pavlovian duet of pleasures!
@Nyte_CrawlerThank you. Sometimes it can be hard to tell when people on the internet are joking...
The title was funnier than the story itself in my opinion. The characterisations of the mane cast was way off which kind of ruined it for me.
Haha this was hilarious!
i hope I'm not a bad person for finding this hilarious
See this is what I find so silly. This is NOT grimdark. At all. No dark here. Yes, lots of blood, sure. But /it's all played for laughs/. I mean, yeesh. A fricken paper cut.
Oh, dear... talk about high blood pressure... XD
Having a Grimdark tag is itself part of what earns it a Comedy tag.Yep. The fanfiction archives just went meta.
SO MUCH BLOOD.
As it turns out, Twilight's spell had little to do with the constant bleeding, Fluttershy has leukemia. In fact, Twi may have saved her life with continuous regeneration of hemoglobin.
Fluttershy gets a papercut? Why isn't this labeled "Grimdark as Fuck"?
That was both vaguely gross and vaguely funny.
So... that's grimlight?
@Celestia[Murder Dark Rampage Psychoslaughter Bloodfall Eternal Damnation]
i cant relive he did it, he actually got it on EqD
I got the reference. I was laughing throughout the whole story because of it.
Introducing...CUTTERSHY! (The only thing missing is the Vampire Goth atmosphere.)
Everyone snipes Fluttershy with grimdark simply because she is the most innocent pony there could ever be. She will get revenge sometime, you know. Push her around enough and she might just pull a cupcakes.
Jesus fucking Christ, do you people have no sense of humour? It has a Grimdark tag because it's a PARODY of Grimdark fics. It's not very funny on its own, but it becomes much funnier when you compare it to real Grimdark fics. The plot, the pacing, the writing style, everything makes fun of those.
Hahaha, the image of Fluttershy with a blood cannon on one of her forelegs is hilarious indeed. And I agree with Solarn, it only becomes really funny when you compare it with actual Grimdark fics.
Fluttershy gets a papercut, Grimdark...Papercut... Grimdark...Small cut... Murder and violence...What?This I gotta read.
At first I wash hah a paper cut come on. Then after I read it. Oh god twilight why and fluttershy not again
.........Hmm...If we can get something like this, surely someone can write a long and ridiculous tale about oatmeal? Right guys?
Oatmeal? Are you crazy?
I just read the first sentences and it is oatmeal
