oooh, what WILL saxton do? kill her? skin her? use her to hunt her freinds? (plant tracking beacon on her, wound her and have her freinds come try to save her)......so many ways to die.....reminds me of that song 'dumb ways to die'
I consider myself sort of an artist, thus seeing things like violence totally objectively. That being said, I like ponies kicking ass, but at the same time, I have no problem with them receiving an ass whoopin' once in a while. Also, liking grimdark helps with that (As long as it doesn't turn into hate art. That is not objectively, but merely pathetic.)
I can see that. I once wrote a story where Luna, my favorite character and the one I respect and empathize with the most, had her eye drained with a syringe, with Celestia happily telling her that it was a punishment and that she didn't deserve to know what she did. Then the event gets recorded as a suicide, complete with a forged note.
