In the Land of the Dropoff

Fimfiction counts every view of every chapter you write, but the number of views it reports for any given story is the number of views for the chapter most read. One might reasonably assume that this is the first chapter, since it’s been on the site for the longest time (unless everything was uploaded at once), and readers who don’t like Chapter 1 will probably not go on to Chapter 2.

This is the case with The Sparkle Chronicles, which has had 2,300 views. It is not the case with Second Act, the most-read chapter of which is Chapter 3 (1,139 views). I am guessing here that this is because this is the chapter that actually details the process by which a human is transformed into a pony, which probably got some random searchers.
