You see a pony running through the Everfree... · 12:31am Jul 13th, 2014

And said pony is promptly eaten.

How many fics have you read that this happened? The pony is rarely given a name, and possibly not even any distinguishing features. But it happens now and then in fics I read. Usually in the first few chapters, before everything gets set in motion.

So... am I the only one bothered by this? This character was created for the sole purpose of dying horribly, because the author wanted to make a point of how dangerous the Everfree is. Why?

Why do we need that? Please tell me. As readers we already know that the Everfree is dangerous. A character from Equestria will know. A non-Equestrian will be on guard anyway, and if not just have them encounter a danger themselves!

This reeks to me of a very lazy habit when it comes to "characterizing" the Everfree forest. It's like Death By Backstory, but with a scope limited to a few scenes at MOST.

So yeah. It's been bothering me.

Hope I don't see happen again,
