- FI Creepybloom, part 10
Everything Is Broken (28/1/2012 – present), previously known as HTF+, is a horror Crossover fan animated YouTube series created by ChaoChao0071 (Rhianna Dearston). It revolves around Flippy and other characters of Happy Tree Friends meeting mainly with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan horror games and Creepypastas by playing said games, which soon start manifesting into their reality to kill them. Amnesia: The Dark Descent also features. Works the series has crossed over are the following:

  • Canon Welding: Parts 1 – 3 were originally titled Luna Game In A Nutshell and parts 4 – 6 Amnesia In A Nutshell.

  • Evil Counterpart: In part 9 it turns out all the evil ponies are actually seperate entities from the originals.

  • Shout-Out:
  • Synchronization: In part 14, FI Creepybloom tells LG Creepybloom whatever feeling happens to one of them, the same will happen to the other, as long as they stay in the same universe. FI Creepybloom and Zalgo Pie were the ones who saved LG Creepybloom from drowning only because the same thing would have happened to FI Creepybloom.
