Music: Something Broke
This bite-sized Rock Opera is a Recursive Fanfiction based on the infamously terrifying My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfiction, Cupcakes. It takes place during and after a few episodes. It expands upon several ideas that weren't in the original fic, like how Pinkie's father abused her as a filly.

It can be found on Bandcamp here, and on Soundcloud here.

According to creator George DesRoches (better known as Tarby), the story of Something Broke is far from over. A redux of the song is planned as the opening track of his upcoming Rock Opera Forever Broken, which will expand on the original story even more.
