Description: If you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. What if you gaze into the eyes of chaos?
Maybe the new episode being on iTunes early will boost its sales. I bet that's why iTunes "goofed": To get more profit from eager bronies.
Whoops! I'm sorry! We shouldn't be talking about underground brony news on the main EqD page for someone's (Cyanide's) story!
If you look into the eyes of chaos you get me. Just ask my mom.@DiscordIsn't that right Dad. Your memory ripe spelll haas wared off. Now where is that 1000+ years of child support my mother needs.
Forget I mentioned it. Back to the story! Sounds interesting.
@Jordanwhich will backfire soon as one of those bronies that bought it post it on youtube for free and all sales on it stop.
Actually read this a few days ago an interesting concept i just feel it was....missing something or could have gone a little further but mayne thats just me still good job author
Hearts and Hooves episode was FANTASTIC!!! :DDDalso, let me say that (because this is one chapter) I will be reading this story
In soviet russia, this still makes no sense...Let's read it!
Very well-written, wonderfully surreal, all with an unmissable element of intrigue.Also trippy as balls. I liked it.
Chaos eh? Yes yes I know, but hell. Warhammer sences starts a' ticklin'.
Was about to go to bed but forget that! Time to get reading.
S2E17 has been leaked! WTF people are even streaming it! http://www.livestream.com/tapsftw
I needed a distraction so I won't have to go to bed and haven't read any fan-fiction in a while.Consider me confused in a good way.
it even got uploaded to youtube!!! HASBRO GONNA BE MAD AT ITUNES FOR DOING THIS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBeJGKzx1Dc
Hasbro is gonna be mad at US for uploading it to Youtube too early!WHY WOULD YOU POST THAT HERE!?
@comickidI paid $2.99 for it on iTunesWatchedIt's already up on YTUsed Clipnabber to DL it DRM freeWatched againI pay for my ponies AND get my DRM-free too!
I think that if you want to watch it, then watch it, but let people find it, and don't just post a link until Saturday. I will also not be discussing the episode until Saturday, out of respect for those who wish to wait. Just like marriage. SCOOTALOO is best pony.
Good idea. I'm just gonna wait until saturday to watch the episode.
It's more fun to watch it and chat with my bronies
For future reference, posting the fact that there is a leak is just as good as posting a link to the leak!Probably better to just ignore it so it doesn't get as much publicity and delete the 9001 emails that come with it.
hey seth, your email bot thing is broken... i sent an email that had nothing to do with this leak, and was replyed with "we can't post this leak because hasbro will be mad" :\
@shadowdevoHow is this POSSIBLE?!?!
Half the comments here aren't about the story...'This' is what happens when Sethisto doesn't allow comments on the post talking about leak/spoilers...
This sounds like something I wrote with my roommate. He's taking his freaking time drawing it though.
Hmm, I've downloaded the new episode, but I think I'll wait for Friday/Saturday to watch it...
@KillahThat. It's kinda like Pandora's Box, except the box contains love and tolerance cocaine. Either put up a "we know" placeholder, or put all the cards on the table?Kind of an odd, nightmarish, music video mixed with a Twilight Zone sequence. Would have liked to have Vinyl get into a scratch battle with Discord, but I guess you can't have it all.
I kinda feel sorry for Cyanide right now...Probably took ages to get this approved and everypony's using the post to talk about something else... come on guys...
I feel the same way MegaTank. It is not fair that his post gets screwed over like this. Hopefully these unrelated posts get deleted, and discussion can happen under the 'Leak' heading if seth unlocks it.
I like the Abyss quote in the description. That was a good film.
That... was insane and creepy. Was there an underlying point to this or did you just want to excerise your landscape painting?
rockin' it means whatever you want it to mean.
@CyrilIt's a lot of things. Primarily, I wanted to see how a less conventional type of weird fiction would be received by the FiM fan community. There's a certain element of descriptive exercise to it. It was heavily inspired in feeling by the eponymous Skinny Puppy song.All that being said, there is a definite narrative and storyline there. I feel like the linchpin is the structuring; notice that there's no dialogue in the Discorded worlds, but none in the club either. I don't want to say too much about my interpretation of events because I'd rather have people make up their own minds.Anyway, I'm glad people seem to enjoy(?) this!
@Cyanidegreat story i loved it :)
Love the skinny puppy song reference. :-D
>a chorus of distant, metallic clanging noises and nearby gurgling>She stood on a wide open sheet of gray concrete, cracked and pitted with age. The ground, such as it was, was littered with battered and broken pieces of machinery, rusted devices-In a few words, she’s now in one of the numerous dimensions of Silent Hill.> Vinyl turned her head, against Fluttershy's orders, and looked toward Rainbow. >She was pointing at the broken antler.-...mmh, or maybe a mix of Silent Hill, and Freddy Krueger’s ability to ‘’possess’’ dreams.-----Reluctant to admit, but... what I read wasn’t as unpleasant as I thought it would be. Really shouldn’t put ‘’grimdark’’ in the tags OR labels, if the story’s goal is to be just ‘dark’ and ominous.Also... complete ? Felt like an introduction honestly, which is a good and a bad thing, depending if there will be more or not.
Wow...That's some seriously trippy stuff right there...
Suddenly, three months later, it returns.
Haven’t seen this in a long time... though, I should be able to remember the base of it.Also, I see that the tag with changed to [Dark] ? That’s good. Fits better.And, >(Lots of new chapters!)-There’s just 1 new part..?-----Vessel :>"Planning to join us at Sugarcube Corner tonight, Vinyl?">Twilight smiled and blinked guilelessly at Vinyl Scratch-Huh... at the end of last part, the Main 6 and Vinyl were at the hospital, on special-urgent request of Celestia herself, and Vinyl was going to tell them about her terrible hallucination right before they found a piece of Discord’s horn... and now it’s party time ?What happened to the transition ?>The first week after her fall in the club had been the worst.-Suddenly... 1 week later. Huh, oooook ?I guess the ‘’urgency’’ of Celestia message, to talk to Vinyl, and the revelation of the possible return of Discord (from Vinyl’s hallucination and the piece of horn) weren’t anything major enough to mandate immediate actions ?>The lack of memory was nearly as difficult to cope with as the feeling of horror-(Partial-)Amnesia ? Ohhhh, come on ! That’s an *overly* convenient plot-thing to use...>The ninth night was when everything changed.>Vinyl's horn glowed. There was only one component left, one she had carried with her for months.-Sooooo... it has been 1 week, 2 week, 2 to 6 months+ ? The time isn’t very clear there...>I would also ask that you send me the antler you found.-Yes, send the extremely important piece of evidence... more than ONE WEEK(if not months ?) after the event !>a scant hour after Twilight and her friends had brought Vinyl to the library-Now, it’s just a handful of hours ? Flashback, I suppose ?I will ‘’guess’’ that the events in this part aren’t put in chronological order, to create some sort of effect... still... the timeline here, going left then right then back left, is causing some confusion.>Take it. Hide it. She's lying. She wants it for herself.>Vinyl's horn glowed.-Yes, listen to the creepy voice in your head, clearly trying to manipulate you... *roll my eyes*>"Hello, Vinyl Scratch," Discord's smooth, hateful voice said from the blackness, his hot breath on the side of her face. "Welcome back."-She’s hallucinating again ? It’s a nightmare ? It’s real ? Did she ‘’died’’ ? Is Discord resurrect yet ?...so many unanswered questions...-----Huhhhhh... Well... it was somewhat ‘ok’, I suppose ? The back and forth with the time was a touch confusing, and maybe not entirely desirable.Overall, I much preferred the first part, I have to say.
