Four Devoured Birds by Pony-Berserker Four Devoured Birds by Pony-Berserker
Here's my panel I created for The 2013 Holiday Collaboration. I was assigned to draw a panel for Day four of our pony version of 12 Day of Christmas. The original line says Four Colly Birds or Four Calling Birds in the original version, and we could change it to whatever we liked as long as it had something to do with the number, so... I decided to go with my favorite kind of humor - dark humor. So, it was the last Hearth's Warming Eve for some of Fluttershy's friends.

The Day of Hearth's Warming by Calpain-EqD You can find the full comic with all 12 panels here, on Calpain-EqD's account, who hosts the comic.
Artists who partook in the collab, and whose panels you can find in the comic were: Pony-Berserker (that's me!), DanielSplatter, DaringDashie, saturdaymorningproj, labba94, Narflarg, Tobibrocki, Epulson, grievousfan, doubleWbrothers, Foxy-Noxy, and (most importantly) Gray--Day who came aup with the idea for the collab, and organized everything. Thanks guys for making this happen :iconrarityclapplz:

MLP and its characters belong to Hasbro. The snakes are generic. The possum comes from issue #10 of MLP Micro-series about Luna | Drawn in ArtRage.

I always wondered how Fluttershy dealt with the fact that most of her cute friends were prey for some others :P

Compassion is definitely Fluttershy's weakness, and I'm surprised this didn't happen a lot sooner. It reminds me of that very old comic about how the carnivores in Equestria survive... Still, I love that look of resignation on her face as the snake "shows its appreciation" for the wonderful dinner. Really nice work on the critters, especially the fearful birds and other hungry ophidian. Poor Angel would rather get it over quickly than be in constant fear of becoming the second helping. But then his toys would be lonely and Discord couldn't spy on him anymore. (Interesting that she keeps his portrait on the wall, but they are good friends after all.)

I hope your Christmas is just as exciting without the being eaten. Take care. :)

In the official MLP comic Fluttershy is actually excited seeing to carnivores fighting each other ;D

My Christmas are awesome by default, because it's always a great day when I don't have to go to the uni =P I hope you had a great time, too!

yeah... maybe Fluttershy is fine when it's "natural", but unjustified beating of a firefly by a pony-like animal might spark such a reaction.... maybe...

Could be like the way many animal rights groups are perfectly okay with animals killing each other (for whatever reason), but oppose animal testing and so on. The idea seems to be that because "predators" are part of nature it's all good, but humans are not really part of nature any more so that's not okay.

Gotta love how Fluttershy is shy and timid around other ponies but quite impassive towards the cruelty in the world of nature xD
Awesome work, man as usual those details on background are hilarious as usual xD kudos

Fluttershy looks pretty chill with that. I thought she would have made a pretzel out of the snake, or sell the snake's family to Rarity.

I think she is aware thast animals eat other animals (as we could see in the MLP comic), but she might have just.... thought that the magic of Hearth's Warming Eve would work or something :laughing:

Oh Fluttershy, you so silly. 

Though I thought animals weren't carnivorous anywhere but in the Everfree Forest?

In one of the episodes (don't remember which, might be Winter Wrap-Up) we see birds eating worms and Fluttershy does not even bat an eyebrow.

Yeah, but weird stuff like that happens on occasion. There are also times when Twilight acts very unscholarly, saying things like "I don't even want to know" or "Don't tell me"

She fed some animals with fish in one of the mlp episodes. she said in the comic "birds eat spiders, but she doesn't condone that" and was amazed by the wonder of two animals fighting each other for the right to eat ponies... yeah, I'm pretty sure she is totally aware of that... and that carnivores remain carnivores. it'd be stupid to see a snake eating hay...

What an excellent Christmas surprise we have here! And a super mega ultra awesome collab from the best of the best no less :D. Wouldn't have been the same without a touch of your charming morbidity, although that does make me wonder how Flutters deals with snakes. Or Harry for that matter. Maybe all the animals in Equestria are herbivores to accomodate Flutter's squeamish nature :P
