''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/5381/rainbow-factory Rainbow Factory]]'' was first written as a ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic]]''-themed song by renowned [[FanCommunityNickname brony]] musician Glaze, aka [=WoodenToaster=] . While it clearly suggests the cheerful Rainbow Factory depicted in the show is [[DarkerAndEdgier not all it seems]], it leaves the actual details [[NothingIsScarier to one's imagination]]. Aurora Dawn later wrote a fanfiction based on the song. Warning: similarly to ''{{Cupcakes}}'', this contains canon character "[[AlternateCharacterInterpretation reinterpretation]]" [[spoiler:(as well as [[DeathFic death]])]] and is very grimdark.

* AlternateUniverse: Some of the Tumblrs have a universe where Scootaloo passes her exam and is hired to work at the factory. In a current crossover with Blog/AskSeriousRainbow, they're in a universe where [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash is Absentia, and an AxCrazy Scootaloo is the one running the factory.]]

** Fluttershy and Derpy Hooves are some of the only ones lucky to escape Cloudsdale society.



** [[spoiler:In the ''Pegasus Device'', this is the only way for sympathetic workers to save failures. Two such sacrifices saved Fluttershy and Derpy Hooves, explaining how canonically pathetic fliers could survive in a society that persecutes them.]]



-->ďIf you refuse to decide, we take both your lives. Donít feel so bad! Very very few have ever accepted this offer. As far as I can remember in my entire career for Cloudsdale Weather, there hasnít been more than a handful. Itís rather pointless, you know? We saved one yellow filly decades ago, and not two days after she Ďpassedí her test she plummeted to the earth and was never seen from again. A little bit before then we saved some cross-eyed pegasus with an unhealthy obsession with bubbles. A year later and she was knocked up by a Royal Guard and left to fend for herself on the ground.Ē

* AdaptedOut[=/=]AdaptationalVillainy: A weird blend of both tropes; in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAON4WjBEzE the Source Filmmaker version of the song]], Rainbow Dash is nowhere to be seen. Instead, the Rainbow Factory is run by ''Fluttershy'', [[IncorruptiblePurePureness of all ponies]].
