Never been to that website before.....
This looks ... dark.
@Shadow HeartOh, you've done it now..........OH DISCORD!!!!
*dramatically breaks down*NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Misanthropy and betrayal is something I can get behind.
I browsed the first couple of pages and I have to say I like it.Will keep reading.
*see Bombedrumbum's comment*And then I hid in Haywai.
Something unsettling about ponies dropping f-bombs
Now that is a nice ending...........Why does it have to be to be continued? It better not be like Pokémon........
@Shadow Heart YOU CANNOT RUN FROM DISCORD!!!
Apparently Celestia has the power to make ponies explode
They look pretty intere-TWILIGHT SPARKLE
TWILIGHT SPARKLE's thoughts are a nice touch.I agree with Fluuttershy and 8bitbleepbleep
@Bombedrumbum OBJECTION! you can run from me you just don't get very far
@Discord well played..........I like how the artist used Pinkie Pie's actions, lol
@DiscordScrew you.Faust pones all.MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Guess who isn't sleeping tonight. Got comics to read!
Excuse my ignorance but is that comic made from screencaps from the show or original art?It looks SOOO good....
@BombedrumbumOh, I just remembered, I'm his student.Discord is best non-pony.To quote the genius himself, "Discord rules, Celestia drools"
@Flutterfan that's what I was thinking, but on page twelve there are three Applejacks......
@Discord@Shadow HeartOh, but what fun is there in making sense?
@BombedrumbumNow, you're getting iit.
That was definitely a good comic! I look forward for act 2 in january!
Amazing comic........and debate
question for you bombe Why is the rum gone?
Finished it.That was really really impressive. Eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
@Discord I gotta hand/hoof it to the guy.........he did an amazing job with the lip syncing
Feeling tired right now, but I don't care. This was well worth whatever drowsiness I feel tomorrow.
@DiscordI apologize for stealing tea from your secret stash under the floorboard. I drank some, but now I see weird colors and everything is crazy.I'm scared. Am I gonna die?
Well, that got dark pretty suddenly.
@Shadow Heartyou will be fine... just avoid stairs
@Discord why not?
Sweet new banner!
They pumped that banner out fast!! Pinkie Pie's weapon of chaos was just unveiled today!
@DiscordI AM FREAKING OUT!I JUST WATCHED A RABBIT GROW CLAW BECOME SEVEN FEET TALL AND RUN OFF WITH A FOAL IN IT'S MOUTH!
Loving the banner. I would have saved the cannon until 100 million, but this works just as well. =)
OH MY GODTHAT PINK MONSTER IS GONNA SHOOT ME!*curls up into fetal position in a corner*
I had a laughing fit at "Oh fuck" then decided that's enough ponies for tonight.
I read through some of it, but honestly, it just doesn't interest me as much as I was hoping it would. I guess it's just not as much up my alley. I can't say I dislike it, but I don't like it as much as, say, "And that's how Equestria was Made". Another pony comic. This one I find to be "okay".
So grimdark I love it
That was an amazing comic, especially when I re-read it, because it made more sense for some reason
This is awesome, but that website loads so slow for me :(
@herpyderpy THANK GOD IM NOT THE ONLY ONE
@BombedrumbumGod... THEIR IS NO GOD ON THE INTERNETS
@Discord where is your god now?Busy playing SKYRIM?
Ah, playing field I see.....
Does it say something about my mind that I found this more funny than anything? In the so wrong it's funny sense, I guess..
@Quaianna not when she slaughtered Luna hopefully.....
This comic is evil!! Why Luna? Why with the messed up personalities? Nightmares everywhere!!! Foret it IDC
And Luna exploded into a bloody mess and I went meh... which is strange because I usually like these...
0.0 Oh...Oh my. This was terrifying. THEY BLEW UP LUNA! I don't know how I'll ever sleep again.
50 pages and i hit a wall...NOOOOoooooooo
@BombedrumbumWas more of a 'well, that's probably going to end messily' a few pages earlier. Part of it I guess is me not really 'attaching' to this variant as much as, say, the more canon personalities, or ones that retain them for the most part.And as far as spelling my name? NO U.
What the hay...?
Poor Twilight. Now she wont kill that mule :`(
I read about 10 pages, then I rated it with one star. Then I read the comments, and saw nothing but praise. So I read a few more pages to see if it got any better, but it only got worse. There are just so many problems with this, and I don't mean the changes in personality. I could treat these as totally original characters and artwork, and I would still think it's crap. You can't make a "dark" story just by making everypony a complete bitch. Beyond the shallow characterization, the writing is just poor. It follows the EXACT SAME story with just enough changes to make everyone over the top dark.
wow! interesting story.
I'm sorry, but things like these are the reason why I sometimes hate the Pony fandom. What inspires people to make these grimdark stories up about a cartoon, a cartoon which is not even made for our demographics. I believe fans are free to make up original stories and alternate universes, but this is just wrong. To me, this story only proves that the whole premise of fanfictions is to make them grimdark, gorey and full of cursing somehow makes the fanfiction "mature".
I loved it. I couldn't stop laughing at how Twilight treated Celestia and the others. I want to read more.
thats how season 1 Luna became seson 2 Luna? that would be a cool twist for the plot =P. i liked the story and im waiting for more ^^
@Ergo Cogito@BeheldLol some people take stories WAYY too seriously... You do know that this is the internet... If you think this is too intense (I thought the title "Friendship is betrayal will give you some clue) or CRUEL then please leave the internet right now, before you stumble onto pictures of innocent ponies becoming...well not-so-innocent (fucking Rule 34)
@Beheld I like when the fandom gets mature just aslong it isnt to gorey and porny its okay. but thats maybe my sick humor =P
Good grief its the Pony Mirror Universe...(gratuitous Star Trek reference)
I am glad people love it and hate it! :D I know fully well, it's not what everypony likes and by no means am I considering myself an artist or anything of the like, anyone can photoshop. Hand-drawn comics are by far more admirable.Making fan comics out of screencaps has kind of just been my thing and after getting drawn into the show, I just felt like there was something funny I could do with it.Either way, I am happy the comic got more attention. I've been a lurker on this site for almost half a year now and am consistently amazed at all the cool artwork and fan creations people pull off. Especially mad props to the people behind the Trollestia stuff! They are an inspiration.Any feedback and discussion on my comic is welcome and I will do my best to take it into account as I continue to make it in January. Thanks for your interest everyone!
That's some dark stuff...It reminds me of the Star Trek mirror universe.
Cool story, brony.
@BeheldI can actually somewhat agree here. This is not mature in the true meaning of the word. Mature would imply towards something more in the likes of Friendship is Dragons http://friendshipisdragons.thecomicseries.com/ It's got great sophisticated jokes and does not need to rely on the more crude forms of humour to remain entertaining.Friendship is Betrayal is mature in the sense that it contains themes that would get R/M ratings. My comic is very much childish, I can admit that. However that is how I think humour is at its most fundamentals.One of my favourite comedians and entertainers in the world is Weird Al Yankovic and I think while his humour is very slapstick and childish, he still is always able to get me on a happy mood. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTGlUMvbhSw is a good example of over the top grim content for humour's sake.To cut a long story short, the comic is not supposed to be taken seriously. It just entertainment, folks :)
@KingOfSmashThat's not the problem. The problem is that making a work bloodier and sexier is a shallow attempt at making something "mature." It's an insult to our intelligences when someone makes something innocent Darker and Edgier and expects us to find it engaging. It's not engaging. It's the fever dream of a diseased mind who wouldn't know good storytelling if it was hand-delivered by Jesus, Mohammed, and the Buddha to his house.
@Spikely WhiplashArguably I do know of good storytelling though, as is evident by the fact that I am also watching the TV show.However the decision whether my storytelling is good is of course completely up to the reader.
@FlutterfanMostly screencaps with the odd photoshop thrown in here and there to adjust the mood and improve images.
connection got slow so i stopped on page 14...i must say i kinda (SPOILER!) Feel like its just some different things occured with the first episode
@DewdI found this much more humorous-dark then actual "mature"-dark.Then I read your comments and you've confirmed that was the intent. Well I think you achieved that and I for one look forward to the rest of it. :P
Read about 5 pages and stopped. Fucking awful.
Already read part of this one. Glad to see the rest finished. It wasn't too bad.
I am curious about the next part... on one hoof the plot was rather simple... but the twist ending gives the second part a potential for Deathnote level scheming... Don't buck it up.
Oh Mgod! Pony's are cussing! The funny part is... the only major thing that changes is the dialouge (and addition of dark thoughts) and makes a completely different thing. Wow, this has both scarred and amused me greatly, worth it!
Nice hook at the end. Now I'm intrigued.
Yeah. This could have used a big ass gore/grimdark ta if you ask me.----- SPOILER ------Even tho only the bloodsplatter was shown, C. blowing up L., I would have rather avoided like the bucking plague.Not cool.
