    Link: ED Link here (includes sequels/side stories)

    It's pretty much exactly what you would expect from the name; Silent Hill with ponies.

    I'm not an expert on Silent Hill, so while I think the fic does a decent job of capturing the general feel of it, I'm not the best person to speak on that matter. In any case, I found the story reasonably creepy and engaging.

    My only complaints would be that the dialogue tends to be a bit wordy, and there is the occasional grammar flub. Still a good fic though; I'd rate it at 4.5/5.

    The side stories and sequels are also a point of interest; haven't read them yet myself, though.

    Also available (and more easily read) at FiMFiction, where the grass really is greener and the sun shines all day. Link!

    The first half was weak, particularly the way Pinkie Pie was sent to Silent Ponyville, but from Chapter 3 on, things got pretty freaky. Video game elements(quest items, keys) always bug me, but the alternate endings bit made up for that to a degree. Sad Pinkie is usually so jarring to be unreadable, but the backstory managed to pull it off, kind of.

    It also seems to be a spin-off or crossover for Cupcakes. So...

    It's worth reading for actually managing to combine Silent Hill and My Little Pony properly, but Grimdark!Pinkie Pie doesn't really work with Pinkie as the victim, so 4/5
