Commission for quodfuero

He asked for a pony crossover of a scene from the book, "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.  In this scene, Ebeneezer Scrooge is concerned about Bob Cratchit's son, Tiny Tim's, future as he is very sick and asks the Spirit of Christmas Present if he will make it.  Ironically, Scrooge forgets that he once wished death on Tiny Tim earlier in the book.

Quite a powerful scene from the story.  Not sure what connection Rarity has to Scrooge but Pinkie makes a perfect Spirit of Christmas Present.  :3

And interesting note; it's speculated that this scene is also an attack on the ideas of Thomas Malthus, who was one of the first to propose draconian population control measures.

wait, I dont remember reading Scrooge saying Tiny Tim should die, he just said that people who are not sent to the workhouses should die

Scrooge was condemning all the poor with those words.  The point of the scene is to drive home just how cruel he was being.

She said something about Tiny Tim dying would decrease something!

notice how it's in quotes.  Also read the description, Rarity's character said the same thing early in the book, Pinkie's character is just quoting them to state the irony and be a little sarcastic.

I didn't think of Christmas Carol at first glance.  I thought of Balto.  The scene where the little girl's got pneumonia or something.
