Never hunger
Never prosper
I have fallen prey to failure
Struggle within
Triggered again
Now the candle burns at both ends

Twisting under schizophrenia
Falling deep into dementia

Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Everyone's after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

Birth of terror
Death of much more
I'm the slave of fear, my captor
Never warnings
Spreading its wings
As I wait for the horror she brings

Loss of interest, question, wonder
Waves of fear, they pull me under

Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Everyone's after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

Into ruin
I am sinking
Hostage of this nameless feeling
Hell is set free
Flooded I'll be
Feel the undertow inside me

Height, hell, time, haste, terror, tension
Life, death, want, waste, mass depression

Old habits reappear
Fighting the fear of fear
Growing conspiracy
Myself is after me
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Frayed ends of sanity
Hear them calling
Hear them calling me

AHAHAHAAAA!!!

Lyrics from the song "The Frayed Ends Of Sanity" by Metallica



PLEASE FULLVIEW!!!

TUNE IN NEXT TIME TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AJ OFFERS DASHIE SOME APPLE PIE! :psychotic:

This picture is based on an MLP: FiM fanfic called "Rocket To Insanity", which is a follow-up of sorts to the infamous fanfic "Cupcakes". To read the fanfic itself, follow this link --> [link]
To read the tribute song that I wrote for the fanfic, follow this link --> [link]

Well, here it is, the accompanying picture to my tribute song "Why Didn't You Run?"! :fear: I think this ranks in the top three of the most disturbing pictures I've ever done, EVER. Unless it's actually number one, which is a distinct possibility.
And actually, I don't hate either of these characters. They're actually my 1st and 2nd favorite characters from MLP: FiM. I'm just very intrigued by what happens when insanity takes over from innocence, and all of the grimdark fanfiction writers that I've discovered since I started watching the show aren't helping. :psychotic:
On a little side-note, this was the most intense picture I've done in months in terms of the time and effort I put into it. All told, I think I spent around 5 and 1/2 to 6 hours total over about three days on this, and that's just for the final drawing. I probably spent another two hours total sketching out ideas for it. And I had FUN doing it too, BEEYATCH!!! :headbang:

WHADDAYA THINK?!!

I watched the hole thing with scepticism at the beginning. But you can't judge what ypou didn't watch. So I watched it and even though the german dubbing voices are somewhat aweful it's quite funny. One can't close his eyes on everything forever. :)

I read Rocket to Insanity last night and the alternative ending as well.

I was not much for the ending at RoI. But the alternative ending ended
up giving me a smile on my lips and I cried a little because of the dramatic
scenes that happened between Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.


I never thought I was gonna drop tears to something like this. But well.
I like the characters from the animated series.

Ahh insanity. It really is a beutiful thing isn't it? At first, it starts out so small, kinda like a blooming flower, a baby learning it's first words, or an early stage of cancer, but it grows, and grows, feeding on it's victim until it has what it disires. They could start from being teased by bulies, or in the case from this story reacurring nightmares, if not treated at it's early stage, it'll continue to become worse until someone dies in the hands of the insane.

This story is great. But I heard some people have forgotten about the alternative ending to it.

It is kind of strange how different sources of inspiration can blend together. This one would make a bit more sense if you'd read the fanfic it was based on, but I'm guessing you're not all that interested in ponies. XD

In any case, thanks very much for the comment! :D

Equestria Bureau of Investigation after-action report:
"Dear Princess Celestia,
"Agent Trainee Dash successfully located the hideout of the serial killer known to the press as "Cupcakes" and identified later as Pinkamena Diane Pie. She was drugged, taken hostage and tortured, but managed to escape her bonds. While deprived of her sidearm, she managed to engage Pie in melee combat in the dark. Both were armed with knives. Pie died from blood loss secondary to severing of both carotid and jugular arteries (autopsy file attached). Agent Trainee Dash survived with deep lacerations.

Reccomend promotion to active special agent status pending recovery and evaluation following therapy with EBI psychiatric therapists.
---Your faithful EBI director,
Special Agent Twilight Sparkle"

:iconawwyeaplz: That was AWESOME!!! Do I detect a whiff of "Silence of the Lambs" there? XD

It's weird, everyone seems to think that this is some sort of revenge picture for "Cupcakes". But it's really based on a story called "Rocket to Insanity". In the story, the events of "Cupcakes" never happened, but they're a chain of recurring nightmares that haunt Rainbow Dash and slowly make her go insane. Eventually, she becomes convinced that Pinkie really does want to kill her, and ends up murdering Pinkie in what she thinks is self-defense. THAT'S where this scene is from. :nod:

But seriously, that was an awesome comment! Thanks very much for sharing that! :D

What can I say? Metallica gives me that which I desire. :iconmetallicaplz: And thank you very much! :D

And if you haven't heard of the fanfic that this is based on and you want a reversal of "Cupcakes", check out the fanfic "Rocket to Insanity". It's not a "vengeance on Pinkie Pie" kind of thing, but it does turn the tables quite a bit on "Cupcakes". Also, it has a pretty well-written, "happier" alternative ending. I say "happier" not "happy" because it's still pretty sad, but it turns out okay in the end. (The alternative ending is actually longer than the original story. XD )
