So apparently the Gates of Tartarus are just a stone's throw away from Ponyville.

Surely that could become a problem. Eventually. Right?

After all, who knows what unspeakably evil creatures exist on the other side of those gates.

Tartarus Seventh Element 7/28/2012 2:59:13pm No.15 - Score: 13
I pretty much banked on Tartarus holding evil that is far more evil than any Villain the show has to offer. Think about it, Discord didn't even open that shit when he took over. He's even afraid of what's in there O.O

Spoken word junk!
Before harmony, before chaos...
...there was darkness, proliferated by those things.
No one knows where they came from.
They are ancient, seemingly eternal.
They've been since locked away in the fires of Tartarus, where they belong.
No evil, no walk of life, would dare unlock those gates, not even the lord of chaos himself.
Unbeknownst to the populace, the gates of Tartarus will open once more
The prophecy, written in the blood of an Alicorn.

Kyoga - Beyond the Gates Kyoga 7/27/2012 5:57:34am No.6 - Score: 11
Could the gates of tartarus be only the housing of the foul beasts of equestria? perhaps.
but perhaps they hold something far more sinister and vile than the worst beasts of Equestria.

What if humankind exists Beyond the Gates.

Triumph of Tartarus SevenUpPony 7/28/2012 9:35:17pm No.33 - Score: 11

Also not quite sure what genre this would fit into...

King of the Gates Eccentrifuge 7/28/2012 3:00:12am No.11 - Score: 8
They dove in, seeking adventure. Now, they'll have to fight their way out.

Tartarus Applejinx !tDashiepow 7/28/2012 6:41:02pm No.22 - Score: 7
Would you believe unspeakably incomprehensible, like Cthulhu and stuff?

Escaping musicians Eerie 7/28/2012 8:24:40pm No.26 - Score: 6
I had an idea about octavia being the only one left after the apacolypce caused by opening the gates of tauros. Of course, that idea went down the shitter when I realized I dont really know much about classical pieces. So the idea evolved to Vinyl and Octavia escaping Ponyville, running for their lives. and thats kind of an epic mental image, so I'm going with it.

*Reuploaded because I am retarded

Good Morning Ponyville Doofcake 7/28/2012 8:49:24pm No.29 - Score: 5
So erm... Cerberus came to Ponyville... And uhm...
He said "Good morning Ponyville!"

And then Pinkie Pie threw a house party and everyone raved.

In other words, I'm making a big vocal track that I'm working real hard on and it has to be perfect so I couldn't finish it before the deadline. So I made a house track in about 2-3 hours. Yay~
