The story can be read [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/94846/the-monster-we-made here]]. There is a sequel as well, ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/141957/memoirs-in-ink-and-blood Memoirs in Ink and Blood]]''.
!!This story contains examples of:
* AGodAmI: Twilight Sparkle.
* ApocalypticLog: the first chapter is a document left behind by Luna [[spoiler:after she was forced to flee for her life]].
* AsTheGoodBookSays: In Twilight's chapter towards the end of the first fic, she paraphrases Romans 8:31.
-->Twilight: If the gods are for us, then who can be against us?
* BiblicalMotifs: There are several times where both the fic and its sequel tie themes back to the Bible. This becomes most prominent in the sequel, which even has a chapter titled ''I Am''.
** In fact, the sequel cranked this up even further, with the authors notes on the last few chapters. They were a mystery to fans, until the author revealed that they were written in Biblical Hebrew.
* ConstrainedWriting: Each chapter, except for the last one and the bonus chapter, has exactly 1000 words. The last chapter has exactly 2000 words. Since the bonus chapter is about [[spoiler:Discord]], it has a non-round number: 1050 words. The author calls it "an exercise in minimalism".
** This pattern continues into the sequel, where all chapters, save those focused on [[spoiler:Discord]] remain at 1000 words each.
* CurbStompBattle: Except for [[spoiler: Discord]], none of the characters had a chance.
* DefiantToTheEnd: [[spoiler:Pinkie Pie keeps a smile to her end.]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: Celestia and Luna recognized Twilight Sparkle's exceptional talent, trained and taught her, and raised her into an alicorn goddess.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Rarity]].
** Happens again to [[spoiler:Discord]] later in the sequel. This one was arguably more severe as he was stabbed with what seemed to be ''molten iron''.
* [[spoiler:PosthumousNarration]]: Except for [[spoiler:Luna, Discord, and Twilight Sparkle]].
* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Discord to Twilight in the bonus chapter.]]
* TheStarsAreGoingOut: In the sequel, its implied that Twilight literally throws stars to earth as a weapon. In the same way, most of the other ponies comment that the sun and moon seem to be at war with one another, frequently leaving them in periods of eclipse.
* SwitchingPOV: Each chapter is narrated in FirstPersonPerspective from a different character.
* TitleDrop: Twice. [[spoiler:Once in Celestia's chapter, and once at the end of the last chapter.]]
** And [[spoiler:Discord]] drops the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic series title]] [[spoiler:at the end of his chapter]].
* VisualPun: [[spoiler:Discord]] does one to Twilight. She does not take it well.
