One day, Twilight Sparkle tries to cast a new spell. It turns her and, for some reason, Big Macintosh into spiders. They then have lots and lots of spider sex. Twilight gets pregnant with spider babies, who then hatch and kill Spike. There is a very exciting chase, and the two run into another spider named Miriam Webster and one of Pinkie Pies sisters. The baby spiders bring Spike back to life by spitting all his juices back, Twilight and Big Mac are turned back into ponies by Miriam, the author has a Self-Insert cameo as an alicorn, and Twilight returns home.
Now stretch that one paragraph across a few pages, misspell almost every word, use no grammar whatsoever, and voila! You have The Spiderses, the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic answer to My Immortal and Half-Life: Full Life Consequences.
The fic can be read on Pastebin here, or on Fimfiction here. There are also a few dramatic readings on Youtube, if you are so inclined, with the equivalent of the Gmod version as part of Rainbow Dash Presents.
