  8. >Halloween; 6:23 P.M.
  9. >You’re walking towards Fluttershy’s home to return Flutters her calculus notebook you borrowed last week.
  10. >Twilight offered you hers, but you had to politely decline them, even after Fluttershy pointed out how great Twilight is at taking notes.
  11. >What Fluttershy doesn’t know is that you always ask for her notes as an excuse to visit her and chat a little bit.
  12. >You always ask for her notes as an excuse to visit her and chat a little bit with her, even her brother is gradually growing suspicious of you.
  13. >If she finds out what you do, you don’t even know how she’ll react. Probably she’ll feel creeped out.
  14. >You shake up your head from the negative thoughts and just wonder if Fluttershy is staying at home, after all; she can’t stand Halloween.
  15. >A few children run around the block trick-or-treating. Too bad, you are not a kid anymore, and having a sweet tooth sure is making you crave some of their candy.
  16. >As soon as you arrive to Fluttershy’s home, you notice that all the window’s curtains are shut, the lights are off and there are no Halloween decorations on the walls nor on the yard.
  17. >There’s an empty bowl sitting on a box however, with a legend that says: TAKE ONE.
  18. >It seems that one brat took all the candy in the bowl and made a run for it.
  19. >You ring Fluttershy’s doorbell.
  20. >…
  21. >No response…
  22. >You knock the front door this time.
  23. >The door opens up slightly, revealing an empty and eerie looking interior, not a usual sight to see.
  24. “Huh?”
  25. >The door wasn’t completely closed?
  26. >That’s odd.
  27. >Perhaps you should leave her notes on the living room’s coffee table and leave, not without closing the door afterwards.
  28. >After all, you don’t want to keep her girly notebook full of bunny stickers nowhere near your belongings.
  29. >[“Nice notebook…Annie!”] You recall Snips’ words he used to mock you when he saw taking the notebook out of your locker.
  30. >You didn’t come all the way over here to return to your home with them once again.
  31. >Too bad you won’t be able to talk to Flutters tonight.
  32. “Hello? Mrs. Shy? Flutters?...Zephyr?”
  33. >No response…
  34. >You break into her home and quickly place her notebook where you intended to leave it.
  35. >Gee, it’s very dark.
  36. >As soon as you turn around you see a very menacing looking figure armed with a hockey stick, and wearing hockey equipment.
  37. “YIKES!”
  38. >Startled, you accidentally trip with one of the coffee table’s legs and fall on your stomach.
  39. >”G-GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!” The scary looking figure yells.
  40. >Wait a minute, that voice…
  41. “Flutters?”
  42. >Fluttershy raises the hockey stick over her head and looks like she’s ready to attack you.
  43. “Whoa whoa hey, heeey Fluttershy! It’s me, Anon! Chill, chill!”
  44. >”Anon?” Fluttershy says as she lifts the hockey mask, revealing that cute little face that fills you with joy.
  45. >She turns the living room’s lights on.
  46. >”It is you…”
  47. “Fluttershy! You scared the living heck out of me,” you say as you stand up and dust off your clothes.
  48. >”Sorry, I didn’t mean to…” she apologizes.
  49. “Nice hockey maniac costume by the way! I thought you hated Halloween. Nice eerie ambience you got as well, no lights, windows shut…for a minute I thought something horrible had happened to you and your family.”
  50. >”Costume? Ambience? Horrible? What are you talking about Anon?”
  51. >She looks at herself.
  52. >”Oh no no, this is Zephyr’s uniform; I had to put it on as soon as I heard you breaking into my house, I thought you were a burglar for a moment…what were you planning mister?” she asks, looking somewhat upset, “why did you break into my house?”
  53. “Look, all I wanted to do was give you back your notebook. The door wasn’t locked; in fact it was half-closed.”
  54. >”IT WAS?!” Fluttershy yells in distress, “…oh my goodness. I must’ve forgotten to lock it.”
  55. “Yeah, hence the ‘thinking something horrible had happened’ part, I was really worried Flutters, that’s all…”
  56. >”Aww Anon, you didn’t have to. I’m sorry if I’m too cranky today but it’s Halloween, and I don’t even want people to come close to my home, so I put a bowl full of candy for the kids on the porch and turned the lights off before I dashed upstairs to watch my series in my room.”
  57. >Poor little thing, she looks quite nervous.
  58. “Why’s that? Where are your parents and your brother?”
  59. >”Mom is taking care of Zephyr at the hospital; he got badly injured at the last match, and you know how…demanding he can get, so my mom is doing her best to keep him quiet.”
  60. >Yeah right, he probably sprained his ankle and exaggerated his injuries as he always does.
  61. >You really dislike him, and you know he dislikes you too; he always tries to cut short your visits by annoying his sister every time you try to talk to her.
  62. “And your dad?”
  63. >”He has to work the dreaded night shift at the factory he works at…so I’m completely alone in the worst night of the entire year.”
  64. “So, you’re home alone huh?”
  65. >Hmmm…this could be great.
  66. “You put candy in the bowl on the porch, forgot to lock the door and quickly dashed upstairs huh?”
  67. >”Yes, I didn’t want to see any of those awful costumes those kids wear, they are really scary.”
  68. >You look through the drapes and window only to see a bunch of kids walking around wearing superhero, cowboy, princess and sci-fi themed costumes.
  69. >There’s literally no scary costumes on sight.
  70. >Maaan; what even happened to Halloween?
  71. >Back in the day, you wore the spookiest costumes ever.
  72. >Now it’s all watered down garbage, or perhaps you’re just growing older.
  73. “Well then Flutters, I better get going…you should refill that bowl by the way, it’s empty.”
  74. >”It is?! Oh no…now kids will come and knock on my door,” she says, feeling quite anguished.
  75. “Okay then…happy Halloween Flutters, thanks for the notes, they were really helpful.”
  76. >”W-wait!”
  77. >You turn around.
  78. >”I-I don’t want to be alone tonight. Could you uh…keep me company? I-If that’s okay with you of course.”
  79. >[SQUEALING INTERNALLY]
  80. >You can get to spend a night alone with your crush?
  81. >You must be the luckiest guy in the entire world!
  82. “Eh, why not?” you shrug, trying to remain calm and collected.
  83. >Fluttershy slowly takes off the hockey gear.
  84. >”I’m sorry Anon, I feel like I’m forcing you to do this. I bet you were looking forwards to attend Flash Sentry’s Halloween party right?””
  85. “That’s not true at all Flutters! Because I…wait what? Party? What party?”
  86. >”The Halloween party Flash hosts every year at his parents’ house?” Fluttershy says while raising an eyebrow.
  87. “…”
  88. >Fluttershy suddenly realizes that you weren’t invited to Flash’s party.
  89. >”Oopsie, I’m sorry Anon. I didn’t know-“
  90. “It’s cool Flutters…I have my own way to celebrate Halloween anyways. What about you? Are you gonna attend?”
  91. >”I-I’d love to but…”
  92. >Fluttershy takes a look through the window and lets out a yelp as soon as she looks at a bunch of kids wearing creepy costumes.
  93. >”-I’d rather stay at home tonight until the coast is clear…I don’t even know how anyone can enjoy this horrible holiday.”
  94. “As I said, I discovered something that made me enjoy it quite a lot, I look forward to it every year.”
  95. >Fluttershy looks intrigued.
  96. >”Really? What do you do?”
  97. “I watch tons of horror themed movies while eating candy and pizza in my bedroom, I just get comfy and watch-.”
  98. >”S-sounds scary.” Fluttershy interrupts.
  99. “Nah…it’s quite fun! You know why? Those movies made me quite the filmophile, and that means I watch tons of films that would be considered not-scary at all these days. They have a certain charm for me, to think some people would be scared back in the day at bad special effects and corny dialogue? It’s just so fun to do that every year!”
  100. >Fluttershy doesn’t know what to say.
  101. >You pull your phone out of your pocket and show her your playlist of B-tier horror movies.
  102. >”Wow…these look pretty old.”
  103. “Some have not aged well, but that’s just a fraction of their charm…bad acting, corny jokes, horrible special effects; what were they thinking?”
  104. >Fluttershy looks sickened, but curious.
  105. “Say…do you want to watch one with me? I’ll promise it won’t scare you.”
  106. >”N-NO! I don’t like horror movies!” She shrieks.
  107. >You let out a chuckle.
  108. “You know what Flutters? I used to hate Halloween back when I was little, I even was too afraid to go trick-or-treating with other kids…but one Halloween night a peculiar old movie caught my eye and I couldn’t help myself but keep on watching it. I ended up watching a complete marathon of monster movies in my bedroom that same night!”
  109. >”Really?”
  110. >You nod.
  111. “Yeah, afterwards I spent a bunch of nights watching horror movies, both old and new and I knew that since everything was fake and no scary things like those happen in the real world there was nothing to hear. By the next Halloween I always wore the scariests costumes among the neighborhood kids, and they were always impressed!”
  112. >”Aww…what a cute little story! I think…”
  113. “See? There’s nothing to fear! Everything is fake, lemme put this particular movie on your TV, you’re gonna end up loving it!”
  114. >Fluttershy looks a little less nervous.
  115. >”Okay…I trust you Anon. I’ll prepare some popcorn for the two of us, could you please refill the bowl on the porch with more candy?”
  116. “Sure Flutters…”
  117. >Fluttershy walks towards the kitchen while you grab a bag full of candy, and as soon as you open the door you find three kids standing on Fluttershy’s porch; startling you a little.
  118. “Whoa!”
  119. >”Anon?”
  120. >She sounds like…
  121. “Apple Bloom?”
  122. >The kids take off their masks.
  123. >”What are you doing here Anon?” Sweetie Belle asks.
  124. >”Yeah, you didn’t get lost now did you?” Scootaloo asks, “this is Fluttershy’s home.”
  125. “I’m keeping Fluttershy company for a while, her parents and brother aren’t around so she’s alone and really scared, now if you please excuse us-”
  126. >”Aww rats! Her mom always hands out the best candy!” Scootaloo snaps her fingers.
  127. “But that doesn’t mean she didn’t intend to leave you kids go empty handed…here!”
  128. >You hand her some sweets from a big bag full of candy that was sitting right next to the front door.
  129. >”Awesome! A Pluto bar!” Apple Bloom happily says.
  130. >”Yaaay!” Sweetie Belle happily says as the candy reaches her bag.
  131. >”Nice!” Scootaloo says as she checks the contents of her bag.
  132. “And a bunch of candy for me as well,” you say as you stuff some of Fluttershy’s candies in your pockets, “tell your friends that this house is off-limits okay?”
  133. >”That’ll be two more Pluto bars then…” Apple Bloom says, while Sweetie and Scootaloo nod.”
  134. >You sigh.
  135. “Okay…here you go.”
  136. >”It’s been ah pleasure doin’ business with’cha Anon!” Apple Bloom says.
  137. “Yeah yeah.”
  138. >After they’re gone you fill the bowl with more candy and tape the TAKE ONE sign on the front of the bowl once again, then shut the door and stretch your body.
  139. >You use your app to cast the movie to Fluttershy’s flatscreen.
  140. >”I’m back…” she says, carrying a bowl full of popcorn.
  141. “Great! Now get comfy and pay attention, you’ll love this one.”
  142. >”I-if you say so Anon…”
  143. “Don’t worry, this movie is just fun to look at, besides…remember you won’t be watching it alone, I’m here after all.”
  144. >”Very well then,” Fluttershy lets out a resigned sigh, “if it gets too scary will you promise me to stop the movie?”
  145. “I promise,” you say, raising your hand as witnesses do in court.
  146. >You play the movie.
  147.  
  148. >An hour in the movie and Fluttershy has not yelled at all.
  149. >In fact, she’s really enjoying it, giggling at the terrible acting.
  150. >”Oh my goodness…I think I can see the strings on that skeleton.”
  151. “See? It’s more fun than spooky.”
  152. >[“EEEEEK.”] The actress yells as the skeleton throws her on a pit of water.
  153. >Fluttershy lets out a giggle.
  154. >The lack of color, gore, and the use of bad special effects has Fluttershy’s engaged on the movie without scaring her at all.
  155. >”This is just amazing Anon. I can see now why you like these movies.”
  156. “Even if some of these movies stink, they are cult classics among fans.”
  157. >(“Hahaha!”) a bunch of weird noises and mean laughs are heard coming from the house next door.
  158. >”Huh?”
  159. “What was that?”
  160. >Fluttershy quickly stands up and looks through the blinds.
  161. >”Oh no…”
  162. “What is it?”
  163. >”It’s Snips and Snails!”
  164. “Snips and Snails? What are they doing here?”
  165. >”They always play stupid pranks on our neighborhood, they even steal the smaller kids’ candy!”
  166. “Really?”
  167. >”Yeah…can you believe that last year they TP’d my house?! It was such a pain to remove all the toilet paper by myself!”
  168. “Zeph didn’t help you out?”
  169. >”No, he said he was not feeling well that day, he came home tired from hockey practice…”
  170. >Of course…
  171. >”Oh no, they brought eggs this time! Our poor neighbor’s house has been egged!”
  172. >You ponder a thought.
  173. “So they enjoy playing pranks huh?” You say as you stand up and start putting on Zeph’s hockey gear.
  174. >”W-what are you gonna do Anon?”
  175. “Just you wait Flutters, we’re gonna pull a prank on the pranksters…”
  176. >Fluttershy looks confused.
  177. “Got any ketchup Flutters?”
  178. >”Ketchup?”
  179.  
  180. >You’re now Snails.
  181. >”Next, Fluttershy’s house!” Your best friend says.
  182. “Do you really think Fluttershy’s mom learned her lesson last year Snips?”
  183. >”Of course she did!” Snips says with a laugh, “she doesn’t want her home to be TP’d once again, she’ll better be nice and give us all those sweets.”
  184. “Mmmm…sweets,” your mouth waters, “I love Halloween.”
  185. >You both approach Fluttershy’s home and notice something quite odd.
  186. ”Look! There’s a bowl filled with candy on the porch!”
  187. >”It’s ours now!”
  188. >As soon as Snips touches the bowl filled with delicious candy, the front door slowly opens by itself.
  189. “Uhhh…Snips?”
  190. >”Be quiet Snails! Look, there’s Pluto bars in here!”
  191. >You look inside the house and find something large lying on the floor.
  192. >”Huh? What is it Snails?”
  193. “Uhh…what is that? It’s really dark and I can’t see anything.”
  194. >Snips looks intrigued and confused as well.
  195. >”W-Why is Fluttershy’s door open? Did you open it Snails?”
  196. >You shake your head.
  197. >Snips takes out his phone and turns on his camera’s lights.
  198. >You both let out blood-curling scream as you both find Fluttershy’s body lying on the floor, blood pouring out of her body.
  199. >“AAAAAH!”
  200. >All of a sudden, a tall figure sporting a hockey mask and carrying a large knife smeared with blood appears in front of you two.
  201. >He lifts the knife and starts running towards you.
  202. >You both let out girly screams and run away from the hockey-masked killer that took your innocent classmate’s life.
  203. >”RUN! RUN SNAILS!”
  204. “AAAAAAAAAH!”
  205.  
  206. >You’re Anon once again.
  207. “They’re gone Flutters! That oughta teach them a lesson.”
  208. >Fluttershy stands up and lets out a giggle.
  209. >”Hi hi~ that girly scream of theirs sure was funny. I tried my best not to laugh at them.”
  210. “Yeah, slasher films are my guilty pleasure,” you say as you take Zephyr’s goalie mask off, “maybe this prank was a bit cruel, but looking on the bright side, they didn’t steal your candy nor egged your house.”
  211. >”Yeah, well thought Anon! You sure know your horror movies…” Fluttershy happily says.
  212. ”You know what Flutters, you’d be a pretty great actress!” you say as you start cleaning all the ‘blood’ from the floor, “you really looked as if you were dead.”
  213. >”Oh stop it you, I just did what you asked me to do Anon…you should become a film director instead.”
  214. >You let out a chuckle.
  215. “Say, you wanna keep watching the movie?”
  216. >”Of course I do! I've never had this much fun in Halloween! Which other movie should we watch afterwards?”
  217. "I'm glad you asked!" You say as put on a smile and press the play button once again.
  218.  
  219. >Three hours later.
  220. >Fluttershy really enjoyed the 2nd movie you played.
  221. >”What a bittersweet ending Anon, I felt really sorry for the poor monster.”
  222. “Yeah, that’s one of my favorite movies. The critics were harsh on the movie just because of the special effects and calling the monster’s affection towards the main character absurd, but the plot, at least for me, was pretty solid.”
  223. >”For me too, it was so beautiful, what should we watch next?”
  224. >In that moment Fluttershy’s phone starts ringing.
  225. >”Oh, it’s Rarity…excuse me for a moment Anon.”
  226. >Fluttershy answers Rarity’s call.
  227. >”Hello?”
  228. >[“Hi darling! I just wanted to remind you to come to Flash Sentry’s party. We all really feel your absence…I know how you feel about Halloween but, can you please make an exception tonight and have fun with us? Everyone is here!”]
  229. >Loud muffled music comes out of the phone’s speaker.
  230. >They sound like they are having a good time.
  231. >”Uh, goodness Rarity…I-I kinda have plans and-“
  232. >[”Please darling! You will not believe how much fun we’re all having, but it’s just not the same without you. It’s okay if you don’t come with a costume, everyone understands how you feel!”]
  233. >”I-I’ll think about it Rarity…” Fluttershy says before hanging up on her.
  234. “Is something wrong Flutters?”
  235. >”My friends want me to attend Flash Sentry’s party.”
  236. “Oh…”
  237. >”Yeah, now that I think of it…I’ve never attended one of his famous Halloween parties, Rainbow Dash has always bragged about how great the parties were and that I shouldn’t have missed them.”
  238. “Very well then, you should totally go Flutters!”
  239. >”Huh?”
  240. “Yeah…now that we played a prank on those jerks and watched a couple of horror movies you should know by now that there’s nothing to be afraid of, it’s just to have fun!”
  241. >”B-but…”
  242. “Don’t worry about me, I’ll go home and keep on watching the marathon I was planning to watch anyways.”
  243. >”No! I don’t want to go…not without you!”
  244. >Say what?
  245. >Is Fluttershy being serious?
  246. “B-but Flutters, I wasn’t invited!”
  247. >”So what? I don’t want you to miss out on the party either. And if Flash says something then we’ll leave, that’s it!”
  248. >Fluttershy is willing to leave the party if they don’t want you around?!
  249. “Wow Fluttershy…what’s with the sudden burst of energy? On Halloween even?”
  250. >”I’m starting to enjoy this holiday because of you Anon. It wouldn’t be fair to go to the party without you, you deserve to have fun too!”
  251. “Well…let’s get going then! Is it okay if I put on Zeph’s uniform? I-uh…don’t have a Halloween costume.”
  252. >”Of course Anon, I’m sure my brother won’t mind…you look very scary with it, especially with all that ketchup smeared all over the jersey and mask,” she says with a giggle, “I’ll go get changed! Wait here.”
  253. >Fluttershy climbs up the stairs and heads towards her room.
  254. >How cute, Fluttershy really enjoyed the time you both shared.
  255. >Maybe something interesting will happen afterwards.
  256. >You can picture it in your mind.
  257. >(“Oh Anon…I-I’ve always loved you.”)
  258. (“Fluttershy…”)
  259. >Dreaming is free, or so they say.
  260.  
  261. >Twenty minutes later.
  262. >You can hear Fluttershy walking down the stairs.
  263. >”Moon Prism Power Make Up!”
  264. >You turn your head around your shoulder and find Fluttershy wearing…
  265. “F-Fluttershy?!”
  266. >She has dressed up as Sailor Moon?!
  267. >”Umm…w-what do you think?”
  268. “You look…stunning!”
  269. >”T-thank you Anon! I sure am glad my old Sailor Moon costume still fits… however, I think it’s a bit tight around the chest though. I haven’t worn it since that anime convention took place like, two years ago.”
  270. “Guh huh…”
  271. >”Um…Anon?”
  272. “I-I mean…your costume looks great Flutters. I didn’t know you were an anime fan.”
  273. >She blushes.
  274. >”Well…it’s something I keep to myself, especially after learning how Rainbow Dash mocks otakus almost every day. Do you think this costume is a bit…off?”
  275. “Nah, it doesn’t matter much, you don’t have to wear scary stuff if you don’t feel like it.”
  276. >”Good! Let’s get going then…”
  277. >You put on the bloody hockey mask on.
  278. >”Umm…on second thought, could you take that off until we get there?”
  279. >You let out a chuckle.
  280. “Of course Flutters…let’s go!”
  281.  
  282. >As soon as Fluttershy steps out of her home, the sight of kids and parents wearing spooky costumes makes her yelp and hide behind you.
  283. >”Waaah! Why can’t they wear something less creepy?!” Fluttershy cries.
  284. >You let out a chuckle.
  285. “Relax Flutters, they’re all fake, just like the movies remember?”
  286. >”A-are you sure?”
  287. “Take a look around, see? Nothing but kids wearing cheap costumes. Your costume is way better than theirs, and it sure attracts the attention of them.”
  288. >Some girls nearby are fascinated by Fluttershy’s costume.
  289. >A little girl wearing a witch costume runs up to Fluttershy, followed by her friends, one is wearing a werewolf costume, another is wearing a red scarlet devil outfit, and the rest wear somewhat debatable scary costumes, one even is wearing a pumpkin outfit, how cute!
  290. >”EEEEK!” Fluttershy is overwhelmed by the positive reaction of the kids.
  291. >She’s totally not used to this kind of attention…
  292. >”Oh my goodness! You look so pretty miss!”  The little witch says.
  293. “See Flutters? A real witch would never say those words.”
  294. >”Oh um…thank you,” Fluttershy manages to say.
  295. >”Yeah! What are you supposed to be anyways?” The little devil girl says, “I want to wear that costume next year!”
  296. >Fluttershy tries to hide behind you again.
  297. “Come on Flutters, let the kids admire your costume!” You gently push her away from you so the kids can admire her costume.
  298. >”Yikes! Oh, h-hello kids; I umm…I-I’m Sailor Moon,“ Fluttershy says.
  299. >”Sailor Moon? What’s that?” the little devil replies, “you look pretty however miss!”
  300. >”Yeah!” The little pumpkin agrees, “I want to be that Sailor Moon too next year!”
  301. >”Hey! We both can’t wear the same costume next year!” The little devil says to her pumpkin friend.
  302. >Fluttershy lets out a giggle.
  303. >”Come on girls, no need to fight,” Fluttershy says as she takes her phone out of her purse and shows a picture of the entire cast to the little group of kids, “you can all be a different Sailor Scout next year.”
  304. >”Wooooow!” They all say at the same time, “they’re so pretty!”
  305. >Ah Fluttershy, the girl with a heart of gold.
  306. “Sorry to interrupt girls, but we have to get going,” you say as you hand them all some Pluto bars from Fluttershy’s house you couldn’t eat before, “Happy Halloween!”
  307. >”Wow! Thanks mister!”
  308. >Fluttershy waves their goodbyes to the girls.
  309. >”Bye miss!” They all say.
  310. >”How cute…I’m glad they liked my costume.”
  311. “Yeah, we’ll probably see all the Sailor Scouts next year don’t you think?”
  312. >Fluttershy lets out a giggle and keeps walking to your side. Feeling a bit uneasy, but you assure to her that everything’s gonna be okay.
  313. >Kids love Fluttershy’s costume, while also considering yours to be somewhat scary, even if it’s just Zeph’s hockey uniform.
  314. ”A little bit more and we’ll be there Flutters…”
  315. >”I’m so sorry if I’m forcing you to do this Anon.”
  316. “Nah, don’t be Flutters…spending Halloween like this with you is much more fun than the previous ones.”
  317. >”R-really?” Fluttershy happily says, “why, thank you Anon. No one has ever said that to me before.”
  318. “Said what?”
  319. >”That you’re having fun…people always tease me every time Halloween is coming. Zeph loves to call me a scaredy cat. And Rainbow always rolls her eyes every time I refuse to accompany her and the girls to the parties they attend,” she says with a sad look on her eyes.
  320. “Well, this should prove Rainbow wrong, because you’ll be attending this year’s party. It’ll be fun.”
  321. >Fluttershy lets out a content sigh.
  322. >”Thank you so much Anon, with you around I feel so much safer.”
  323. >You don’t know what to say, so you just let out a dumb chuckle…which Fluttershy seems to find cute.
  324. ”A few more blocks and we’ll be there in no time.”
  325. >Man, you’re so happy. This is probably the best Halloween ever.
  326. >You must refrain from squealing in front of Flutters.
  327. >Nothing can go wro-
  328. >SPLAT!
  329. >”ANON!” Fluttershy yells.
  330. >A mean teen threw an egg to your face.
  331. >(”HA! Got him!”) The bully laughs, followed by his friends.
  332. >You find a bunch of teens playing mean pranks on the neighborhood’s houses.
  333. >Oh man, you ran into Halloween pranksters, dumb teens playing mean-spirited “pranks” on the neighborhood, and if that wasn’t enough, they also love to steal candy from the kids.
  334. >”Oh my goodness Anon…are you okay?” Fluttershy asks, cleaning your face with a handkerchief she took out of her purse.
  335. >(“Nice shot man!”)  One of the bullies says.
  336. >(”Let’s get the nerd too!”) The other responds as they aim their stink bombs towards Fluttershy.
  337. “Uh oh, let’s go Flutters!” You say as you grab Fluttershy’s hand and start running towards a house’s yard.
  338. >”Eeep!” Fluttershy squeals.
  339. >They all follow behind riding their bikes.
  340. >A few stink bombs land near Fluttershy, thankfully none of them hit her.
  341. >They try throwing a few eggs at her, however you place yourself on the path of the eggs and let them hit you in the back.
  342. >”Goodness!” Fluttershy says.
  343. >You throw a few trashcans that were standing on the alleyways to prevent them from following you.
  344. >Luckily they stop for a bit, letting you get away from them and allowing you to hide in a neighbor’s garden.
  345. >”We’ll never lose them!” Fluttershy says.
  346. “I wouldn’t be so sure Flutters…” you say as you spot a nice hose on the wall.
  347. >You whisper your plan to Fluttershy and ask her to go and open the water valve while you hold the hose tight.
  348. >As soon as the bullies enter the garden you two were hiding at…they realize their mistake.
  349. “NOW FLUTTERSHY!”
  350. >Fluttershy pulls the valve and you put your finger on the hose to make the water come out with more speed.
  351. >Thanks for the fluid mechanics class Ms. Cheerilee!
  352. >(“AGHHH!! You’ll pay for this!”)
  353. >You soak all the teens, who immediately drop their pranks and other belongings to the floor and make a run for it.
  354. >Serves them right.
  355. >”You got ‘em Anon!”
  356. “We both did Fluttershy…” you happily say.
  357. >”Oh my goodness…my heart is beating so fast! That was so. Much. FUN!”
  358. >You let out a laugh.
  359. “They didn’t stain your costume right?”
  360. >”I don’t think they did,” Fluttershy says as she takes a closer look on her costume, letting you eye her a bit.
  361. “Good…shame about your brother’s uniform though.”
  362. >”Don’t worry about it Anon, he can do his laundry afterwards; I just love how you took all that damage just to protect me…” she says with a blush, “thank you.”
  363. >She noticed!
  364. “Let’s get going shall we? Flash’s house is on the next block.”
  365. >Fluttershy nods.
  366.  
  367. >Moments later, at Flash Sentry’s house.
  368. “You ready Fluttershy?”
  369. >”Umm…I-I think I am.”
  370. >Fluttershy rings the doorbell.
  371. >Applejack opens up the door, she’s wearing a very cute lion costume.
  372. >”No way…Fluttershy!?”
  373. >”H-hi Applejack.”
  374. >”Hah, this is amazing! And Anon came too! Glad you could make it pardner.”
  375. “Hi Jackie…”
  376. >Applejack lets you two in.
  377. >”Hey y’all, guess who is joining us!”
  378. >Fluttershy quickly cowers behind you as soon as your classmates wearing their scary costumes and masks turn their attention towards the two of you.
  379. >Applejack lets out a laugh.
  380. >”It seems Fluttershy decided to come after all, Anon is here too!” She says.
  381. >”About time you decided to join us Fluttershy…” Scribble Dee says, wearing an astronaut costume.
  382. >Fluttershy is taken by surprise; it seems everyone was looking forward to see her.
  383. >”H-hi everyone…”
  384. >Everyone goes back to what they were doing.
  385. >”Nice costume Fluttershy!” Curly Winds says.
  386. >”T-thank you…”
  387. “Lemme get you something to drink Flutters…you must be exhausted from all that running.”
  388. >”Yeah…thank you so much Anon.”
  389.  
  390. >Hours have passed and you’ve done nothing but enjoy the party with Fluttershy and her friends.
  391. >You’re now dancing with Fluttershy, something you both don’t usually do, but none of you seem to care.
  392. >Music is great, the ambience is also cool and the food is top tier.
  393. >The music ends and everyone stays still, the lights get turned off, only a single light remains turned on in the middle of the huge living room.
  394. >”Eeep!” Fluttershy yelps at the sudden change of ambience, hugging you in a panicked way.
  395. >”What’s happening?” Fluttershy asks.
  396. >”Awww yeah…time for the spooky stories, a classic…” Rainbow Dash says.
  397. >”S-spooky stories?!” Fluttershy nervously asks.
  398. >”A section in Flash’s parties where any of us can tell their Halloween stories, the one who tells the scariest one wins a prize!” Rainbow replies.
  399. “A prize? Nice!”
  400. >Fluttershy however doesn’t look to excited to hear them.
  401. >“Come on Fluttershy! They can be fun to listen to. Remember, none of these are real,” Pinkie Pie says.
  402. >”Yeah Fluttershy, they’re just mean to give you some goosebumps and that’s it,” Sunset Shimmer says.
  403. >”Indeed darling; however, we understand if you don’t want to hear them,” Rarity adds.
  404. >Fluttershy then looks at you.
  405. >”I-I think I’ll stay…” she says as she hugs your arm tighter.
  406. “Cool, you won’t regret it Flutters.”
  407. >”So!” Flash says into the mic, “you know the rules right? Who wants to be first?”
  408. >Rarity stands up and takes the microphone.
  409. >She clears her throat and calls the story of a man who lived around the 19th century.
  410. >”This is the story of a handsome, rich man who was known for being a party animal, lustful and a complete scoundrel. Lust guided his life and to conquer the women he wished for he’d simply buy them expensive gifts, write love letters, and whenever he achieved his goal he’d abandon them regardless of their fate, they would end up either pregnant, getting shamed by their families and eventually some would commit suicide.”
  411. >”Golly…” Fluttershy says.
  412. >”Pump and dump,” Brawly Beats lets out a laugh as he fist bumps Flash Sentry.
  413. >”One occasion when he returned home at midnight, after leaving the bed he shared with a married woman, he passed by a house with two balconies, where in one of them was a beautiful woman of approximately 20 years, dressed in white, with a lace fan in one hand that stared ecstatically at the stars and fanned itself strongly. In that, he dropped his handkerchief and when the scoundrel cavalierly gave it to back to her; he was captivated by her delicate beauty. They talked for a while and agreed to see each other the next nights, at the same time to avoid having her father discover them.”
  414. >”Booooring!” Rainbow Dash says.
  415. >”One of those nights, when he tried to kiss her, she interposed her fan that fell apart in two, her keeping one of the two halves. After some nights and at the scoundrel’s insistence that the lady should escape from his father’s house, she asked him not to see her for two nights and that at the third night she would escape with him, on one condition, he would have to accept to take her little son with him, since he already had one and she could not be separated from her baby. He then accepts and when he returns to look for her beloved many hours before the agreement, he is surprised to notice that the house seemed old and abandoned. When he called for her name and did not get an answer, he asked two neighbors who were passing by.”
  416. “You okay Flutters?”
  417. >”Shh! I’m trying to listen Anon!”
  418. >”They explained that for 10 years the house that was owned by a rich man called Emerald Stone and his daughter White Seashell, was abandoned. They only inhabited it for a few months and then disappeared. However, the neighbors claimed that from that house came long cries, heartrending as of a soul in pain.”
  419. >Twilight rolls her eyes and keeps on reading some science book.
  420. >What is this? A No fun allowed zone or what?
  421. >”The scoundrel, worried; ordered a locksmith and a priest to be brought. Upon entering the house they discovered that it was in ruins. They opened a room that faced the street and that corresponded to the balcony where he had seen the young woman and they discovered that it was completely upholstered and no ray of light entered. Lighted with lamps and candles, two skeletons were found; one of a baby and the other one of a woman who held in her whitish bones of her hand the half of a fan. The priest raised prayers and sprinkled holy water for the eternal rest of those innocent souls, meanwhile the scoundrel wept inconsolably when he remembered that White Seashell was one of the many women who had deceived and abandoned to her fate.”
  422. >Fluttershy, Sunset and most of the girls present frown after hearing the fate of the poor woman.
  423. >Even the sceptic Twilight gives Flash Sentry a bad look, maybe she’s onto him.
  424. >”The scoundrel left the house in anguish and in the middle of the darkness was surprised by the husband of the last woman who he had deceived. This, airy, made the claim and without giving him time to defend himself, he pounced on him and stabbed him, provoking his death. At that moment, the silence of the night was broken by a sinister laugh coming from the abandoned house that announced the end of the infamous mockery.”
  425. >Rarity ends her story by bowing against the audience like a proper lady would do.
  426. “Heeey, that was pretty good.”
  427. >”Poor White Seashell…” Fluttershy says, wiping away a tear with a handkerchief.
  428. “No need to be sad Fluttershy, it’s just a story.”
  429. >”I know…I’d just wouldn’t like to run into a man like that, a man that would creep on my vulnerabilities or one that would cheat and lie like that! I hate men like those!”
  430. >You recall the scheme you use to frequently pay visits to Fluttershy at her home.
  431. >Is she calling you out on your scheme?!
  432. >”But I sure am glad you aren’t like that scoundrel from the story Anon…” she says with the warmest smile ever.
  433. >Phew…
  434. >An hour of different stories later.
  435. >Some folks are creeped out, however you’ve managed to keep calm and collected, while at the same time you’ve done your best to keep Fluttershy calm as well.
  436. “It’s all stories anyways Flutters…there’s no such things as ghosts or spirits y’know?”
  437. >”Indeed,” Twilight says, “the possibility of dead people coming back to life? Psssh…”
  438. “We get it Twi, these stories are fake because books,” Applejack says as she rolls her eyes.
  439. >”It’ll be tough to pick a winner,” Flash Sentry says.
  440. >”Allow me Flash…” Rainbow Dash says as she takes the microphone and heads towards the middle of the room.
  441. >”This one happened for real; in Canterlot, it happened in the fifties. It’s the story of a woman named Flower Sunshine, the woman was married had a beautiful daughter named Sunflower Seed. Flower Sunshine’s marriage started to fall apart. Things escalated with her husband, from verbal insults to full physical aggression.”
  442. >”Oh my…how terrible,” Fluttershy says.
  443. >”The day before Halloween Flower Sunshine told her husband that she wanted to get a divorce, the husband asked the woman to start the procedure the day after Halloween so Sunflower Seed would have a last fond memory of a holiday with a united family, then on Halloween night the husband took Sunflower Seed trick or treating around Canterlot, but they never returned home.”
  444. >”That snake…” Applejack comments.
  445. >”The man took his own daughter and drove away from home, days later Sunflower Seed was found dead on Canterlot’s outskirts and the man was never seen again. The mother went mad after hearing the fate of her daughter and she was locked in Canterlot’s Mental Health Institution.”
  446. >”Wow…that’s pretty messed up,” Sunset Shimmer says.
  447. >”Legend says, the poor little kid roams around Canterlot’s streets looking for her mother, some have seen her at the docks, some others at the school she used to attend, while others have seen her sitting in front of an abandoned house which people believe that’s where she used to live, and you know what the scariest part of this story is? People say the little kid’s coffin gets dug out of her gravesite every Halloween, at around 3 a.m.,” Rainbow Dash looks at you then asks a question, “Anon? What time is it?”
  448. “Uhh, it’s…a half past two. Why do you-“
  449. >Then, it hits you.
  450. “You can’t be serious…”
  451. >”I am…so! Who wants to see Sunflower’s coffin?”
  452. >”Wait a sec…” Trixie enquires, “you want us to go to the graveyard right now?”
  453. >Rainbow Dash nods.
  454. >”What’s the matter Trixie? Scared…?”
  455. >”The Great and Powerful Trixie, scared?! Puh-lease!”
  456. >”You must be dreaming Rainbow Dash!” Twilight scolds, “visiting the graveyard is just…”
  457. >”Aren’t ghosts a scientific impossibility according to you Twilight?” Rainbow Dash says with a smug grin on her face, “so why are you scared?”
  458. >”I-I’m not!” Twilight nervously replies.
  459. >”Then what’s the problem?! Let’s go everyone, this should be our most memorable Halloween party.”
  460. >Some oppose to the idea, but they change their mind as soon as other of your classmates peer-pressure them to go.
  461. >The graveyard is not that far away.
  462. >Fluttershy looks terrified by the idea.
  463. “Come on Fluttershy…let’s go home.”
  464. >”Yeah…let’s go Anon.”
  465. >Both you and Fluttershy says her goodbyes to her friends and to some of your classmates as well.
  466. >”Aww man! Are you two for real? Things are finally getting interesting! For once we’re gonna do something different rather than telling namby pamby stories,”  Rainbow Dash says.
  467. “Yeah…we’re both pretty tired. Isn’t that right Fluttershy?”
  468. >She just nods.
  469. >”Hey Anon, kudos for bringing Fluttershy to the party. You did what we couldn’t and believe us, we tried everything!” Applejack says.
  470. >You let out a laugh.
  471. “Not quite everything Jackie, perhaps next year you should try celebrating Halloween our way, because we sure are sticking to it.”
  472. >”Indeed,” Fluttershy says, “not saying that we didn’t have fun, but going to the graveyard? I’m sorry, but that’s were we draw the line.”
  473. >”Suit yourselves lovebirds…” Rainbow Dash teases, “come on y’all…let’s go.”
  474. >You’re walking along with Fluttershy back to her home.
  475. “It was a fun party don’t you think Flutters?”
  476. >”It was alright…however, I think I’d rather stay home next year.”
  477. “Are you sure?”
  478. >”Yes, while the party was fun and the stories were somewhat scary, I think I prefer your way to celebrate Halloween. I enjoyed it so much. What do you think if we watch a marathon of your movies next year’s Halloween?”
  479. “Oh, OH! Yeah…that’d be great!”
  480. >”And don’t think I haven’t noticed that you’ve been borrowing my notes to visit me mister…” she teases first.
  481. >Welp…
  482. “Does it bother you when I do that Flutters? Because if it does-”
  483. >”Oh not at all…” She interrupts, “in fact, I enjoy your visits. Don’t mind my brother every time he tries to give you a hard time, he’s just overprotective…”
  484. “And to be honest, he’s kinda annoying…”
  485. >”Yes, he is,” Fluttershy laughs, “I can’t stand it when he acts like that, so instead of meeting at home how about we meet up someplace else? Like Mr. and Mrs. Cake’s shop after school hours for example…”
  486. “L-like a date you mean?”
  487. >”Maybe…” she teases, while looking away and rubbing both index fingers against each other.
  488. >You must be the luckiest man in the world!
  489. “G-great! It’s a date then!”
  490. >Fluttershy comes closer to you and you take the chance to grab her hand, which makes her blush.
  491. >Suddenly, Fluttershy opens her eyes.
  492. >”Did you hear that?”
  493. “Hear what?”
  494. >”Sounds like…someone is crying.”
  495. >A few steps ahead you both find a girl crying in front of a big house.
  496. >”Oh…hello little one, what’s the matter?” Fluttershy says as she approaches the poor girl.
  497. >”Some bullies stole my candy…and I’m very hungry! Waaaaahhh!” the kid cries.
  498. “Argh…must’ve been those no good teens we ran into earlier Fluttershy.”
  499. >Fluttershy’s motherly instinct kicks in, and quickly embraces the poor girl, patting her head.
  500. >“Aww~ There there, it’s okay…” she says as she hands her some of the leftover sweets Fluttershy had in her purse.
  501. >What is this kid doing outside of her home this late? It’s almost 3 A.M!
  502. >She’s not even wearing a costume…her clothes look quite old, as if they were decades old.
  503. >And the house looks pretty…old too.
  504. >Where are this kid’s parents?
  505. >”DEAD…” she replies to your last thought in your mind.
  506. >You look at the kid, her face looks disfigured, and her flesh looks decayed.
  507. >She’s laughing at you with an expression you’ll never forget.
  508. “?!”
  509. >Fluttershy hasn’t noticed anything wrong with her.
  510. >You are petrified, you want to grab Fluttershy by the hand and run away as fast as you can, but your body just can’t move.
  511. >”Poor little girl…I hope these sweets are enough for you,” Fluttershy says.
  512. >”Thank you,” the little girl replies.
  513. >”Go home, your mommy must be worried sick…” Fluttershy says on that angelic tone of voice you’re used to hear.
  514. >”Okay…” the little girl replies once again, then walks towards the old looking house and opens the door.
  515. >”What a nice little girl…" Fluttershy happily says before turning around, only to find you in a shocked state,
  516. "…"
  517. >"…Anon?"
  518. "…"
  519. >”Is something wrong?” Fluttershy asks.
  520. >Didn’t she see her decaying body? Her horrible smile?
  521. >Probably not…the kid kept her initial form in front of her.
  522. >And that was probably for the best…
  523. “Oh…n-no, nothing’s wrong Fluttershy. Let’s just go okay?”
  524. >You receive a message from Rainbow Dash.
  525. >(“OMG ANON. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE FOUND!”)
  526. >You quickly delete the message and keep walking towards Fluttershy’s home.
  527. >”Who knew Halloween could be so fun Anon?” Fluttershy blissfully says, “I can’t wait for the next year!”
