MLP - When the Ponies Cry by DShou MLP - When the Ponies Cry by DShou
= = = = = = = = = =

"To be played by monsters,
in an endless cycle of death and despair . . ."

Was Equestria always a time of peace and happiness?
Perhaps what we believe to have existed is not the truth.
Yet here you stand, seeing nothing but friendship among the land.
What you see is the truth.
hidden beyond what you can see . . .
there is another truth to these happy little ponies . . .

A time where three ponies fight for Ponyville's fate.

I know that these are how peaple compare mlp charactors to higurashi. But in my mind I make a few changes.
                                                                                                                                                                                               Rena: I agree that Rena is like pinkie pie, she's hyper and cheerful, yet can be terrifying.

Mion: Mion is like luna, she is loud, loves pranks, and often takes on a leadership role to her friends.
Shion: Cadance, in my headcannon, is slightly insane and is seemingly kind and gental at first look.
Satoko: I compare Satoko to Twilight, when the series began she thought she was better than anypony else and she was close to her big brother.
Rika: I find that Rika is alot like Celestia. Kind, mysterious, but always loves a good prank.
Satoshi: Shining armor always protected Twilight like Satoshii protected Satoko.
keichii: I will probably use my (Oc) cloudy skies to play keichii in my fanfiction.

Why am I remembered of touhou imperishable night's first level name? It's like you could hack the game to have that name and it's work.

Oh wow I never noticed the similarities there (although I made reference to "When the Cicadas/Seagulls Cry" instead, Ryukishi07 and ZUN do happen to be friends . . . or it's just coincidence -w-), I don't tend to pay attention to the stage names when I played the Touhou games (which btw, can't wait for the next few to come out!)
ThatBubblun52 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Really? You like touhou too? Insta-friends then?
DShou Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Heh, before the whole MLP fandom (still kinda am) I've been a Touhou fan since around Touhou 10 (2007) but even then I once tried Touhou 6 some long time ago without realizing it xD The games awesome, but the fan-work even more!

I have a whole collection of Touhou fan-games, fan-art ad fan-manga in my external drive, I made a papercraft of Aya once (turned out bad but it was my first time crafting =S) and even now despite having slowed down a bit, I'm listening to a whole bunch of Touhou fan-music~

I still remember most of the characters names and fanon personalities and also the bullet patterns from most of the characters (I kinda forgot to pay attention to canon personalities, and as noted I didn't really remember the specifics like stage/spellcard/bgm names and all that, not the best at memory sometimes)

There are just some 'Oyashiro-modes' that I never want to see, just due to how frightening it would be. Pinkie Pie is one.

(Is this even a Higurashi crossover? Lol I really like it regardless!)
DShou Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012  Student Digital Artist
It's actually a tribute to Ryukishi07's "When They Cry" series in the general style of story-telling/events so no it doesn't match up with Higurashi/Umineko (if I were to ever make the story it won't directly copy Higurashi or Umineko or anything either).

It'd probably be Higurashi-like at the beginning but mostly I prefer Umineko.

I love this one^_^ very well done. Is this going to be a part of your story? Is Rainbow Dash bleeding? It just makes you want to know more
