After reading this all I can say is was it really necessary to take THREE cookies? Greedy! No wonder bad things happened...


This is a really short short story, and really disturbing. Chock full of cruel girls that I imagine look just like Bratz dolls, massive amounts of product placement for a 3 page story, sacrifice and disillusionment, this story cuts deep for being so little.

Definitely read this one - Ponies can be found here.

Trudi Ack! Gruesome! Almost gave me the same feeling I had after reading "The Lottery". Thanks for the link!

KristenR Definitely disturbing...I was so surprised by the turn the story took.
