Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I’ve been busy reading a book I plan on sharing with you all, and it’s taking a little longer than expected. Thankfully I’m almost done and we can get back to the regular posting.

This week’s video tells the tale of a teacher’s downfall. Not only is it a great animation, the entire thing is told in rhyme, and a hell of a good one at that. I guarantee you’ll love it. Enjoy!

Creepypasta Critique: Cupcakes

Surely a Pinkie Pie you would not want to party with!

Surely a Pinkie Pie you would not want to party with!

Corrupting the innocent is one of the internet’s favorite pastimes, and ‘Cupcakes’ is one of the quintessential examples of this phenomenon.

‘Cupcakes’ is a creepypasta set in the world of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The tale re-imagines Pinkie Pie, normally a cheery, party pony in the cartoon as a serial killer. She collects and wears the remains of her past victims and uses them as an ingredient in her everyday baking. The story centers on the mutilation and murder of Rainbow Dash, one of her closest friends.

Those of you unfamiliar with ‘Cupcakes’ can read the whole thing here, but I must warn you that this tale is EXTREMELY graphic. It is definitely NSFW and not for the faint of heart. This is torture on the same level as the Hostel or Saw films. Read at your own discretion!

As for my commentary on this tale, let me first say that it nearly breaks my heart when I read it. I’m loath to admit I have a softer side, but I must confess I’m a bit of a brony. I’m familiar with the show and I’ve got plushies of the main characters. I’m by no means a diehard fan, but it is really hard for me to see such a sweet creature die so painfully, especially when Dash sobs to Pinkie that she just wants to go home. It hits my weak point for massive damage!

But enough about my sappy feelings – overall ‘Cupcakes’ a very well written creepypasta. Many events from the actual show are mentioned by the characters, or actually have an effect on the plot. Character dialogue fits their canon personalities perfectly. Even Pinkie Pie keeps her bubbly demeanor – it’s just now that trait is a part of her homicidal tendencies. The author has a clear understanding of the original show’s style, using it to their advantage. It’s easy for fans to imagine how it would look on television.

The author is also talented with descriptions of Pinkie’s lair, as well as the torture that takes place. A great level of effort was put into giving the audience a clear picture of what Psycho Pinkie is like in private. Pinkie explains her motivation to kill in a way vague enough to leave the reader intrigued. What does she mean by a pony’s ‘number coming up’ and who determines that for her?

It’s no mystery to see why it has gained such an infamous reputation. The graphic violence serves as juxtaposition to the normally endearing sweetness of the original show. The shock value alone is off the charts. ‘Cupcakes’ is not so ‘creepy’ per se, however it does have the necessary horror elements to become a well-known staple of the creepypasta world.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week! I’ve had some computer trouble that got in the way of writing, but fortunately it’s all resolved now. We’ll get back to the storytelling next week.

In the meantime I thought I’d share a creepy video from my collection: an animated film about the bombing of Hiroshima. Enjoy!
