The purpose of a story is that it's a story. It can be more, but it can never be less.


Shortly after the events of 'A Health of Information,' Fluttershy ventures into the Everfree Forest and learns what makes the ancient woods so magical.

Short, simple and a decent bit of horror.

Now have some niggling questions about the names the Apples 'give' to their trees... Kind of brings into question AJ's relationship with Bloomberg. Bloom is part of her sister's name so it is an acceptable pony name.

Eyes would have long ago turned to dust. Maybe an eye-socket of the skull?

When she thought about it, she decided that she was just too afraid that her idea would bear fruit.


It was a sturdy oak, the trunk reaching all the way to the distant canopy of the forest and beyond. It was clearly very old, but still quite sturdy and showed no signs of disease or rot. Even the bark was unblemished, showing no signs of wood-peckers or other creatures.

Unblemished… save the carved words.

Don't worry if your job is small
And your rewards are few
Remember that this mighty oak
Was once a nut like you

So, not hard to see where it's going, but still nice and creepy.

And that night, Fluttershy realized she didn't want to be a tree anymore.

Eeee so wait...
I didn't quiet catch why the Everfree Forest has magic....
Can someone answer me please?
I didn't quite catch the point!

I did a reading of this, it'll be out on November 11th! I actually had the same exact thought after watching this episode!

good dark fic I very well will be reading this one for December

or I may do it earlier idk

An outstanding way of connecting a mysterious plant with a mysterious forest into one great story.

omg i love this story.
best part is, it's a actual possibility, thou the show probably wouldn't confirm it.

i do want to ask thou, i am working on a story myself and i would like to ask if i could use the "everfree is filled with trees that used to be a ponies from a town" concept?
if you prefer if i give you credit for the concept, that is fine.

I hardly think I'm the first to have this idea, so no need to ask permission.

haha, i sorta figured, but my friend who i'm writing the story with prefered if i asked for permission anyway, just in case.
thanks anyway.

Short and terrifyingly sweet. I still don't quite understand how/why a tribe of ponies gave the Everfree its power to grow out of control or spawn otherworldly creatures outside of what Equestria already knows, but it was a good read otherwise!

Terrifying and epic. Nicely done!
