Ever since my boyfriend started watching ponies, he calls me his Fluttershy. Sometimes, I don’t understand why, but I still find it simply adorable.
My girlfriend and I bonded over ponies, but now that we’re broken up, it’s difficult to watch the show.
My girlfriend and I came together mostly for our mutual obsession with this show and its characters. We liked to compare each other to Fluttermac, and could talk about the show together for hours. We met over the Internet, and had fallen head over heels in love with each other. We were practically two of the same person. She was someone who I could express my deepest dreams and fears to like no one else before. When we were together, it was the happiest time of my life.
After we met for the first time at BronyCon, for whatever reason, we broke up. Ever since then, any mention of ponies between us incites a huge argument, and she’s refused to watch any more of the show. Even now, any time I watch an episode, I become depressed and dejected. It feels like the optimism and sincerity of the show represents the happiness I had lost, and I haven’t been able to enjoy it in the same way as I did before.
Twilight taught me to be myself. Pinkie Pie taught me to smile, even when things seemed bad. Rainbow Dash taught me to take Pride in things that I do. Fluttershy taught me that if you show a little kindness, it can make a big difference. Rarity taught me to be generous, even if it requires taking risks to give to someone else who is in need. Applejack taught me how to be honest, even if the truth hurts. And, finally, Spike taught me how to not be jealous of others.
When I first got into this fandom, I swore to myself I wouldn’t ship anypony despite my rather shameless shipping habits in other fandoms.
I now ship Twiluna Rarijack and Flutterdash, and that’s not even counting my background pony shipping, and I have absolutely zero regrets.
I can really relate to the last confession, I’m going through almost the same thing. I am trying to convert a few of my friends into pegasisters (All three are girls) and it’s going pretty well. Slowly, but well. However, two other girls who I’m friends with, both of whom are older, are already fans. However, I don’t know about the other, but one finds Twilight and Fluttershy to be annoying. It’s sad because Fluttershy is one of my favorites and I’m very similar to Twilight.
Fluttershed from Hotdiggedydemon’s PONY.MOV series is one of the main reasons I like canon Fluttershy.
I find her extremely funny, and she’s my favorite pony out of the PONY.MOV mane six.
Not only that, but despite the fact that she’s got a deep masculine voice, a murderous, psychotic personality, is drawn in that manic style of animation, and is female, as am I, I think I might have a crush on her.
