"Uh, Scootaloo? I don't think this was a good idea.." groaned Apple Bloom as the group walked deeper into the Everfree forest. The Cutie Mark Crusaders were a group that helped get fillies and colts get their cutie marks, although it just the three friends, and it was Scootaloos idea to try and find a perfect tree to bungee jump off of.
"Stop your complaining Apple Bloom! There has to be a tree tall enough to tie this 5 feet of elastic rope that you have in your saddle bag!" Scootaloo snapped, her stubbornness was one of her key traits and she did a good job of showing it. Sweete Bell was quiet, scanning the area with the flashlight that the group borrowed from Apple Jack. "Uh Scootaloo? There is enough talll trees to fill the whole Apple Family acres.." She said, still scanning the menacing trees in front of her with the flashlight. Apple Bloom was recording the scene with a video camera that Scootaloo borrowed from RD and was also scanning the area.
The trio walked in silence as Scootaloo kept rejecting different trees that Sweete Bell and Apple Bloom thought was perfect. Several hours past and finally Scootaloo found a huge tree that soared to the ceiling of leaves above them. "Look at this huge tree! This is perfect!" The orange pegasus exclaimed as she walked around the tree and notices a note. She tears it off and as Scootaloo's friends approaches her, they all heard something rustling in the darkness. "What was that?!" The trio yelled, all in unison. Something wasn't right and they now were lost within the forest. Scootaloo read the hastily scrawled note out loud "Help Me."
The forest was dead silent, the heavy air was thick with fear. Sweete Belle was flashing the light into the trees, trying to find the thing that moved in the darkness. Apple Bloom was trying to get the camera to work as it was starting to static and become unworkable. Suddenly the flashlight died., plunging the fillies into darkness and they all screamed as something grabbed them and the equipment was dropped to the ground, including the note.....with the fillies nowhere in sight.
Yes I am a fan of Slender and more with his ponfied counterpart. This took at least 2-3 hours for two turns on the GIMP program, just to ink, color and shade and another hour just to do the sketch. I am happy how it came out too!
Sorry for the super long story! I couldn't resist since I thought the picture needed a little more of a push x3 Enjoy the story!
Hope you like it!
