The Four Bronies of the Apocalypse

Post by Cutter McKay » Sat Dec 14, 2013 1:59 am

“Report, my brothers,” Death commanded as he surveyed the three beasts standing before him.

Mushroom Cloud stepped forward first. “My Lord, contention fills the hearts of the people. All work has ceased in favor of impromptu games and parties.”

Scarcity spoke next, not to be outdone. “Whole fields of crops have been razed, Lord, while production of sweets has nearly quadrupled.”

Lastly, Ring Around the Rosies made his report. “Rainbows blot out the sky, while glitter falls like nuclear winter.”

Death laughed deeply. “Delightful. The end is nigh. Misery will soon be vanquished, or my name isn’t Death by Chocolate!”

I'll tell you what, I had so much fun coming up with the Brony equivalent names for the actual Four Horsemen. Famine (Scarcity, also a play on the MLP character Rarity), Pestilence (Ring Around the Rosies) and War (Mushroom Cloud, which I could see either Mushroom and Cloud being pony names, but put them together...) And Death by Chocolate was too easy.

I have to admit I think this is the most fun I've had with a drabble yet. :grin:

Hahaha! I never knew that was Death's last name! So when someone looks like Death warmed up, are they chocolate fondue, or hot chocolate?

I have never seen a single episode of MLP, but this made me laugh out loud.

And I thought giant, twerking teddy bears were the first sign. I'm not too good at apocalypse forecasting, it seems.

Just had a thought for potential improvement. Ring Around the Rosies is supposed to be pestilence, but its calamity is more in line with war. Maybe instead of rainbow and glitter, it's gone around giving everyone chicken pox, so they have to stay home from school. Of course, there are probably other maladies that we could go with. Anyone have any other ideas?
