These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ron the Death Eater: Played with. In Moondancer's Misguided Mission, Sun Shimmer (the recently hired assistant teacher from Mustangia) is doing this to Celestia and humans (such as Megan). Word of God says that this is a direct reference to the general fandom view towards Celestia and when putting humans in the FIM universe (especially the Solar Empire vs. The New Lunar Republic and ''The Conversion Bureau'').
