YMMV / Cupcakes

Go To

For the fanfic:

  • Never Live It Down:
    • It seems that Sargesprinkles will forever be associated with this fanfic
    • Pinkie's reputation among fans will in turn always be hit with association to this story.
  • Nightmare Fuel: It starts out quietly, but when the gorn hits, it hits hard.
  • Nightmare Retardant: For those frightened at the idea of Pinkie Pie going insane and murdering her friends, Cheese Sandwich has proven himself to have superior partying/reality-bending powers than Pinkie Pie. Thus, he could overpower her to save her victims. Maybe.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Take a character who is not only a hero, but a nice character overall, though somewhat bubbly, and make her the extreme opposite, though still technically who she is, just insane, and bam, you've got Pinkie in this fic.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Much of the fanfic's infamy came from the fact that there were hardly any grim-fics in the fandom back then. Cupcakes took nearly everyone by surprise. But now? With many other dark fics that rival that of Cupcakes (like Rainbow Factory, Fallout: Equestria and its popular spin-off), the shock factor that held it up isn't there anymore.
  • Squick: All of it, but mostly the part where Pinkie Pie squeezes Rainbow Dash's intestines to get rid of the bodily fluids inside them, then flosses her own teeth with said intestines, and to top it off, Rainbow pisses herself twice.
  • The Woobie: You really can't help but feel horrible for poor Rainbow Dash.


How well does it match the trope?
