As you may know, I bought a new computer last December, due to my old one overheating and the hard drive exploding. I have a new one now, and I feel I'm ready to tell
you the real reason it crashed.

November 30, 2011
I really like the show "My little Pony: Friendship is Magic" it calms me down and the plot is simple and requires no cognitive work to fully understand. However, I
was beginning to get bored of the season 1 episodes, so I decided to surf the web and look for some more season two ones. It took a good while of searching, about two
or three pages of google, but eventually I found an episode titled "Season 2 pilot: My Little Pony Friendship is magic: Legend of Lostpony".

Just then, a flashback occurred. Does anyone remember that My Little Pony storybook? the one where Mintie, Pinkie Pie, Wysteria and Rainbow Dash were all having a
sleepover and telling ghost stories? I remember buying that book when I was 7, when I was into the original My Little Pony dolls. The story used to scare me as a
child, I would often hide under my covers in fear that the ghost pony would come for me. Interested to see my childhood be reincarnated by the creator of the show,
Lauren Faust, I clicked on the link leading to the website.

I analysed the page. There was no url. Irritated, as I could not link my friends to the episode, I continued examining the webpage. It looked like an amateurly coded
website that eighth graders would make in technology classes. The movie player did not have a timeline, no pause button, just play arrow in the centre of the video.
I was still debating the authenticity of this episode, so I scrolled down to the description. The description was just "...". I rolled my eyes, thinking this was some
stupid prank made by a youtube troll, but I decided to be brave. I wanted to prove to myself that I wasn't going to be scared shitless just for some guy's amusement,
so I hit the play button.

To my surprise, the normal My little pony opening sequence played out as usual. I began to sing along to the theme song, being so happy it wasn't a prank. But as the
theme music ended, the My little pony logo at the end of the opening just stayed there for a while. I thought the video was lagging, so I hovered my mouse over the
window. There was no buffering symbol so I assumed the video was over until very loud static screamed out through my headphones. My heart skipped a beat due to the
contrast of complete silence when the logo was frozen. The screen was black until three words in white chiller text faded into my vision.

"Lostpony is coming"

The text jumped and flickered, as if this movie was somewhat old. I began to shiver and was contemplating whether or not to close the window, but the static then
shifted the scenery into something a little bit more pleasant. The three cutie mark crusaders, Sweetie Belle, Applebloom and Scootaloo were all going over to Twilight
Sparkle's house with their sleeping bags, so I assumed they were staying the night. Scootaloo knocked on the door, and before Twilight could even say hello, the three
fillies ran into the house. As Twilight closed the door, the video then panned upwards to reveal the top of the treehouse, where Aluicious landed on a thick branch.
The frame then froze for a few seconds, zooming into Aluicious' face. I could almost swear I could hear the sound of a music box and little girls laughing faintly in
the background. I noticed the sound getting drastically louder until a horrible image flashed onto the screen. The video was completely zoomed into Aluicious' face,
in blurry black and white. The sound of a girl screaming then sounded its way through my speakers, along with a loud banging on the piano. His eyes were dark black
holes, and he didn't even have a beak. No, a frighteningly realistic human mouth grinning with teeth spread across the owl's face. The frame continued to jump and
shift as the screaming, banging and laughing children continued to play out. After almost wetting myself, the video went back to the four ponies.

The cutie mark crusaders were all snuggled up into their sleeping bags, eyes eager and fixed on Twilight, as she lifted a book with her magical horn and placed it on
her desk.

"Now girls" Twilight spoke in her kind, assuring voice. "This story is called the Prince of Canterlot. Once-"
She was interrupted by Scootaloo.
"BO-RING!" she whined. "Come on Twi', let's hear something scary!"
Applebloom and Sweetie Belle nodded their heads in agreement.

Twilight blushed, embarrassed. "U-Um okay how about 'The story of the sunshine village?"
Scootaloo shook her head.
Twilight sighed. "The happy prince?"
"Twlight!" Scootaloo complained. "Something SCAARRYYY!"

Defeated, Twilight gave into Scootaloo's request. "Alright" she groaned. "Spike, fetch me 'The Legend of Lostpony".
The video panned over to Spike, who appeared to be frightened at that request.

Spike began to shudder.
"No! NO!" Spike screamed and ran off.

My senses told me that this was going to get worse before it got any better. As I sat shaking in my chair, I hesitantly watched.
The three fillies snuggled together in excitement as Twilight began to tell them the story.

"Once upon a time, many many years ago, there was a Pegasus known as Red Helper..."
Twilight's voice trailed off as the screen began to wobble in flashback.

The screen then cut to black for a little while. I thought the video was over so I was about to close the window, but a bloodcurdling moan made me jump out of my seat,
forcing me to watch. More static played out until there was a clip of a white pegasus with a spiky blonde mane and tail and a red cross for a cutie mark. His eyes
were dull and emotionless. He did nothing. Just stared at the road. He blinked once and then began to walk. I noticed the quality of the video rapidly decreasing as he
walked. There was a music box faintly in the background followed by some unfathomable murmuring. The static then sounded, causing me to jump again.

The scenery then shifted to the centre of town, where several ponies all looked at him in disgust. The ponies sounded much like they were speaking backwards.
Then the shot panned up to Princess Celestia. She was flowing with rage. Red Helper barely looked up at her which seemed to enrage her more.

Red lifted his head slightly and "spoke". Notice how I said "spoke" because all that was coming out was loud static sound.
The ponies looked terrified.
"Get out.." Celestia growled. "GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT"
She stamped her hoof on the ground, causing it to shake. Red's eyes widened. Celestia continued to scream at him until he bolted off into the woods.
As he walked, however, ever step made the screen darken.
The sound of the banging piano could be heard again.
Red opened his mouth and the words that came out made my blood run cold.

"I didn't mean to kill her, my love.." he said in an eerie childlike voice.
"Her skin was so perfect, I had to have it for my own.."
"She wouldn't stop screaming..I didn't want her to scream.."
"So I.." the pitch of his voice changed to a demonic growl. "CUT OUT HER EYES"
The static then filled up the player once again.
I then heard a whisper.
"Do you want to end up like her?"
A frightening image of Red suddenly appeared on the screen. His colors were dark and dirty, he no longer had his eyes or wings. They were replaced by bloodied
bandages. His back right leg was gone, the remaining legs severed with cuts. His smile was replaced by a realistic human mouth, as if screaming. The screaming sound
then played out again, along with a creepy music box and the little children laughing. I was now cowering in my chair, crying in fear. the screen then cut to black and
the nightmare was finally I thought.
The player then disappeared, and the webpage was completely black. I looked around a bit until I saw the smallest white text in the far right corner. The text read
"Bye now".
I heard yet another scream and my computer bluescreened. I ran into my bedroom and hid myself under the covers, sobbing histerically. I didn't dare touch that computer
for the rest of the night.

December 1 2011

After the awful terror I witnessed yesterday, I decided to check my computer again. This time in broad daylight. I started up my computer, and everything seemed normal.
I opened up my pictures folder when I noticed all of my hard drive had been wiped clean. There were no folders, no pictures, no videos, nothing. Nothing but two files;
an image titled "Lostponysees.jpg" and a movie titled "" I clicked the movie.
It was four minutes and nine seconds long.
It was an image of Red, lying in a red room with a wicked smile upon his face. The movie quality was awful, and consisted of, you guessed it, static. I watched the
whole movie until the end in suspense. To my relief, nothing happened. I clicked the red 'x' and closed the player and tried to see the lostpony image. It had
disappeared. So had the movie. My entire drive was completely erased. I had no programs, not even windows movie maker. My login was titled "..."and there was only a
'shut down' option. Knowing that it would be pointless to continue searching for any files, I clicked 'shut down'. To my surprise my laptop turned off immediately.

After a few hours of waiting, I tried turning my computer on again. Alas, it wouldn't work.
I have a new computer now, but I will never forget what happened that horrible night.
I tried to put this on wikia but the site is so fucking hard to navigate.

so I'm leaving this here.

Christ this has been rotting in my school computer for ages now.
Here you are.

This could actually happen! (Except for the messed up computer) If someone animated this in flash, that would be awesome! (Brilliant creepypasta by the way!)

I honestly thought this was real. D: So I'm on google right now and I found something. I don't know If I want to open the webpage though...I looked up 'My little pony friendship is magic season 2 pilot the legend of lostpony' and on the first page (there's only 2 pages that came up) and what the url thingy says 'Hide URL'. No preview of the page comes up and in the description is says something about the legend of lostpony so I don't know if I want to open it or not...I thought i should let you know for some reason

I gotta say, this is the first My Little Pony creepypasta that actually gave me chills. Most other ones I've are over the top gory, and at times too silly to be scary.

ToxicElegy Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
>< This gave me the shivers and made my chest tighten with suspense...
I really like it, the way you described things was brilliant. I loved the part where the town ponies were talking backwards, it gave it a larger sense of mystery. The only thing I would add/change is some more visuals. For example, when Red Helper walks into the centre of the town, describe what you're picturing the town to look like, like the colors were dull, or Celestia "just didn't look like the Celestia you've ever seen."
And at one part, I think the flashback would have been a bit creepier if at the near end, the story cut back to reality before going to the final picture of Red, showing the Cutie Mark Crusaders(and maybe Twi trying to comfort them or something) trembling in fear for a moment before it flickers to a picture of them torn apart like Red. That would just be a good touch, in my opinion.
BUT, that's just my inner writer getting away from me... All in all, this is amazing for a first Creepypasta, and the best MLP one I've read since Cupcakes. Beautifully tasty~ :meow:

I almost stopped reading this cuz it was so creepy. Lostpony will haunt me forever.
Becken95 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Student General Artist
Eh, it was well built up story and I like the theme but it didn't give me shivers or made an impact on me or anything. I think the part where you turned on your computer again and found the two files was very good, but the rest seemed very typical (i.e. loud piano, musicbox, static sound, children laughing, women screaming... It seems a little comical in a way because those elements are used so often that they have become a cliche for scary stories) Overall I think it was a typical mediocre creepypasta, it had all the elements but not the special touch that makes it remarkable.
I also found it a little hard to read because you often changed lines after every sentence, it seems a little messy and unprofessional that way. (I'm not sure if it was on purpose of if it's just dA's wierd system)
Another thing is that the ending seemed a little rushed, it's like you told a story and then went "And that's all folks, goodbye".
KannibalPirate Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It's my first creepypasta, so I'll remember those elements when I write another.
It was written in notepad so I had to make the paragraphs myself.
thanks though
Becken95 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Student General Artist
It's very good for your first creepypasta, it's pretty hard to write an original one (especially the first time) because there are so many creepypastas out there, and there isn't much that can happen when it's i.e. a game or a video that's the maintheme.
NinjaGrape Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Student General Artist
Mm. I didn't find myself scared like I thought I would - not that it was poorly written or anything.
Maybe I'm just not in the mood, haha.
Nice job, anyway. First MLP creepypasta I've read.
