I was bored and I did a thing today. I made a waifu/Fluttershy keychain.
I took one of my several Fluttershy vinyl figures and made one of them into a keychain. Of the specific vinyl figure I used, I've got 5 in total...So making one into a keychain didn't hurt too bad. It's not the blind bag Fluttershy either. I'm not sure what she's from, but she's a bit bigger than a Blind Bag. She stands a little over 2'' tall, where as her blind bag counterpart is only 1-3/4'' tall.
I used a picture frame Eye hook and screwed it into her, between her wings. I then took part of another keychain and put it through the loop of the eye hook. Seems to hold pretty well and it's got a secure clasp.
She'll make her way onto my backpack in the nearish future.
I was bored enough...So I rounded up 99.9% of my merch, and took pics of it all. I've posted bits and pieces of it before...but never the whole thing.
Took me awhile to round it all up and take pics.
Not sure what I prize the most in it.....Probably all my Fluttershy merch. :blush:As well as my Glow In The Dark Zecora, and BronyCon Exclusive Rarity card. Both of which were given to me by my friend, who was a massive Rarity fan...but he's since lost interest in ponies, and moved away.....So he gave me his collection to me. I know the value of both those items, and I have no intention AT ALL of selling them. They remind me of him. He also gave me the "I <3 Ponystep" shirt, the Twilight Bandana, The Rarity brushable and a bunch of other Enter Play cards and a few pin back buttons. Though he kept the Rarity blind bag I gave him, as a way to remind himself of me, and our times together.
So here it is.
Yes, I do have a Trixie and Lyra brushable. I really hope Hasbro releases more minor characters/background pony brushables.
POSTERS! I love posters. Though I don't have anymore wall space for them all.And Yes...I have dupes of some. The Fillies ones came in every double pack of some of the Series 2 Enterplay cards.
T-shirts. My fave is my Wonderbolts one. Though I really want to get a Fluttershy one.
My two Military style, flat top hats with buttons.
Card collection....I have Series 1 90% complete...missing a few cards. Series 2 I'm missing a lot of.
Also stickers, I'm a big fan of stickers...Red Bubble has cheap stickers.
Empty card boxes. Good for displaying.
We don't know much, if anything about Fluttershy's background, her parents or anything.
I've had this headcanon about it for awhile now....So here it is.
1: Her parents:
Her parents grew up in Las Pegasus. They met each other at an air show they were both performing at. They had never met each other previously. but they were part of their own flight group.They were pretty famous pegasus, by Las Pegasus standards anyways. They both talked, getting to know each other a bit more and they both found it rather tiresome performing in just Las Pegasus, by sheer luck, somepony noticed their exceptional performances, and they were both invited into the Wonderbolts. They gladly took the offer and headed off to Cloudsdale. Soon after they got married, and had Fluttershy. They became some of the best flyers at the time. This was before anypony heard of the name Spitfire or Soarin. They then retired from the Wonderbolts once Fluttershy started attending Flight School. They wanted Fluttershy to carry on the family name into the Wonderbolts.But she was born a weak flyer, the kids at school made fun of her for it. Her parents constantly pushed her, about wanting her to be a better flyer and to join the Wonderbolts.. She knew she could never be the flyer her parents aspired her to be. She didn't want to be an elite flyer. This among being bullied at school due to her weak flying skills, caused her to be a shut in and a very shy pony. Despite her best friend being Rainbow Dash. Thus, because of this she never wants to talk about her parents, or have any mention of them. She just wanted to forget them.
2: Her best friend
She's always lived in Cloudsdale. Though she was always picked on by other ponies because of her flying ability. So she didn't make any friends. This also contributed to her shyness and closeted nature. THough, one day a certain rainbow pegasus seen this one day, and decided to help her, she stood up for Fluttershy. Because she knew what it was like. Since she had the nickname "Rainbow Crash" by a few of the same bullies. She only had that name because she failed at a Sonic Rainboom. and everypony had been making fun of her since. Though, the day Rainbow stood up for Fluttershy, Fluttershy knew she had at least one good friend. They hung out a lot and eventually became best of friends.
3: Between Flight School and Pilot Episode
After Flight School ended, Fluttershy secretly left her parents, and moved to Ponyville, to a secluded cottage in the woods. Rainbow eventually moved as well, building her own cloud house. Fluttershy was much happier living on solid ground. There she carried on her own business, mostly keeping to herself. Though she did eventually become friends with the other mane 6. She still decides to forget about her parents to this day.
4: Angel Bunny.
I found a rather interesting video about how Fluttershy stumbled upon Angel. So, instead of writing about it. I just decided to link the video.
Warning: Mind your ears. Voice acting isn't the greatest. It does get "loud" at some points because of screaming.
Well, that felt good to get out onto paper,or rather a blog. I guess that wraps it up.
Thanks for reading.
Anytime I get a chance to gush about why I love my beloved Butterfly Butt, I take it! Seeming DashForever and ghostfacekiller39 did one for their respective fave ponies, figured I'd jump on the proverbial bandwagon.
Alright. Let's get this train of adorableness going.
1: She's Adorable:
She's without a doubt one of the,if not most adorable of ponies. From her voluptuously flowing pink mane to her turquoise eyes of kindness.,Well, I guess that's just her head...BUT let's continue down to her ever so soft cuddly pastel yellow body. ...to her huge pink wonderful tail....and last but certainly not least her adorable butterfly butt. I just want to snuggle it all day and night. Her colour palette is just so wonderfully adorable. Right down to her various outfits such as her "Dangerous Mission Outfit" Or her Tree costume. I squee internally everytime I see her on screen.
2: She's caring
Well, I guess it comes with the territory of element of Kindness. She loves tending to anypony, or anything. She'll help a total stranger, when other ponies walk by them. She's also helped what seemed like wild beasts, and then they go to mush in her hooves being real friendly. Like she said "Sometimes, you just need to show sompony a little kindness"
3: She's courageous.
In her own way that is. now, you might not think this, when she's got the word "shy" in her name. But Look back. She stood up to a Dragon 1000x her own size, she even made him cry and apologize for what he did. What other pony has done THAT? I mean, that's pretty badass in my books. She's tamed the wildest of beasts. From a Manticore to an Orthros. She even gave the stare to a Cocatrice, as it was turning her to stone. She didn't give a flying feather about it, all she cared about was to get the Cocatrice to behave.
4: Her Transformations:
Now, these may have been a one episode things...but they ARE part of her canon character. Not anypony can say they've been turned into a Vampire Fruit bat pony by one of their friends. Flutterbat is easily my fave transformation of her. But can't forget Saddle Rager AKA Flutterhulk AKA You wouldn't like me when I'm angry. Along with her being turned into a Breezy to help the other Breezies get back home.
5: She's assertive:
This, this is somewhat new of her. Even though she has been assertive in earlier episodes, it's been more prevalent come this season and last. She stood up to her friends in defending the Vampire Fruit Bats. She also told off Rarity about making the Ponytones into a Quintet, even though Fluttershy was a huge fan of them. She also refused to go see the dragon migration with Rainbow.She said no, because at the time, she didn't like dragons. Though she faced her fear of Dragons in "Dragonshy"
6: She's badass:
Again, something else you wouldn't expect of a pony like Fluttershy. She beat a bear into submission to ease his pain.She made a full grown dragon cry. She's also got her trademark "Stare"...Even I'm afraid of that. Like, when ever she uses it, the animals bend to her every whim. It's like a spell overcomes them or something. Her bat pony persona...that was also pretty badass, even though it was a one episode thing.
7: She has faith:
She was the only one to believe that Discord could be reformed....and she was right all along. Even though the rest of the mane 6 doubted her. Same with the Vampire Fruit bats. She defended them, in having faith that they would do no harm. and Fluttershy was right both times.
8: She doesn't mind helping:
She's helped her friends out on numerous occasions, she's always willing to lend a hoof. After All, a true true friend helps a friend in need. She was ecstatic when she found out Rainbow wanted a pet, and Fluttershy gladly accepted her offer to help her find a pet. She also helped Rarity during "Castle Mane-ia" to restore the various banners and flags in Celestia and Luna's old castle. She also helped her in "Rarity Takes Manehattan" helping the other mane 6 make dresses for her...Even though Rarity over worked her.She helped Rainbow get her precious book in "Trade Ya" even though she essentially traded herself off for slavery....Which isn't cool Rainbow. In "The Magic Duel" even though she didn't want to at first, she snuck out in her "adorable "Dangerous Mission Outfit" that Rarity made, to get to Zecora to help stop Trixie. Fluttershy played a VERY important role in that episode. She's faithful to her friend still the dire end. She's always there.
9: Cute noises:
I mean c'mon. She makes the cutest noises of anypony else. Video evidence.
Well, I guess that about sums it up for now. I'll be cheering her on at the World Cup as her lover and her obsessive fan that totally DOESN'T romantically fantasize about her all the time. I love my waifu. So any chance I have to write about her. I'll gladly take it.
See? she's happy I wrote this about her. I Love you Flutter butt!
No, not my anniversary with Fluttershy as my waifu....THAT was back in October. And it was our 3 year anniversary .
I'm talking about my 1 year forum anniversary! Yes it was one year ago today that I signed up on to these forums.
~~Has it really been one whole year /365 days/8765.81hours? Seems just like yesterday I started perusing these here forums. Time really does fly eh? What started out as a random late night Google search, has turned into so much more. I started out as a blank flank on these forums, and now? Now I"m a pony. a bucking pony! I hope to one day reach pegasus status because pegasus is master race. Upon my ascension from blank flank to pony, I've met quite a few people on here, though some have mysteriously vanished, or haven't come on in a long while, or were simply banned. That said, I've made quite a few friends through this site, and I think that's pretty awesome. I've also made enemies. Heck, I've met some sorta local bronies as well. I even fell in love over the forums....though sadly, that didn't last very long. I'm really gald I found these forums.
~~I've evolved as a member too. I was originally pretty shy about the whole forum thing, I was quite the Fluttershy, if you know what I mean. I did most of my posting in Forum games and forum lounge, though a month or two later, I ventured into other forum parts such as Sugarcube Corner and even the Debate pit. Now, I'm a regular poster in Sugar Cube Corner,Show Discussion and the Fluttershy fan club. I guess you could say I'm leading member of the fan club,I've got a link to it in my sig, promoting it, though we all contribute to the topic. I even Started a Skype group for the Fluttershy fans of MLPF,for those of you interested, PM me with your Skype and I'll gladly add you. . Much love goes out to the memebrs of the Fluttershy fan club! I've even started using pink as my colour of choice for blogs and forum posting. Makes itstand out a bit more, and adds a bit of fun flare.
~~Now, I love Fluttershy. She's been my #1 mare since back in 2010 when I first got into bronydom. She's been my waifu ever since. My love for her has only grown stronger since arriving to these forums, these forums made me appreciate her so much more as well. It made me happy.It was also nice to know there were other fans of hers on the forums. These forums also got me back into buying merch ofer. over the past year, I've accumulated at least 12 pieces of Fluttershy merch....I'm always looking for more to add to my shrine of her I have. I just love her so damned much...I cannot express the deep passion and love I have for Fluttershy. She's much more than just a a character to me. I'm more or less in love with her. I just had this instant connection with her when I seen her on screen for the first time....She just means so much to me.
~~The things I've seen over the 365 days of being on this forum. I don't think I've missed a day of signing into these forums, over those 365 days....Let's see, for forum wide shenanigans, I was here for the 2nd rising of the Discordian Empire! I faithfully joined ~Chaotic Discord~'s army of Chaotic followers....I was loyal till the end, I spread propaganda like wild fire.. I was also here for his Pony Navel Revolution! What a fantastic thing that was. It made me appreciate belly buttons on ponies even more so. So many memorable moments over the past year. Though I've also seen some rather....unmentionable things. That I would rather not post about, I'd rather try to keep this blog on a positive note. There has been many shenanigan's I've been involved with as well. From minor forum game thread hijacks, to posting funny, unexpected troll topics, and even Status Update trends. Much hilarity ensued...
~~To sum it all up, it's been a wonderful year of friendship, shenanigans and all around great fun. This is definitely my favourite forum I've ever been on. I usually don't last a year on most forums because the community on them sucks, or they're just not that active...But this forum....this forum is top notch, a big thanks from me to the Admin,Mod team, Poniverse staff and the donors for keeping this site up and running. Big hoof-bump to all of you. /)
Before I finish off this blog, I wanted to give a shout out to all my friends, past present and even future, who have made my experience on MLPF one of a kind, because Friendship is Magic. I love you all.
~The Thrashy One
~Gunnery Sergeant Dusty
~Princess Celestia/Celestia's Husband
~Sir Flutter Hooves
~Frith is Magik
Sorry if I forgot anyone. I pulled all these off of Skype and my friends list. Or maybe you've changed your name and I hadn't recognized you...
~~As I enter my sophomore year of the forums, I hope to continue being as active as I am now. Lurking and posting daily. Known as that obsessive Fluttershy lover and fan, because it's never gonna change. She'll always be my waifu. And she's all MINE!!
Well, I guess that about wraps up this blog. Thanks to everypony that has made my first year of MLPF a memorable and fantastic one.
So, a couple weeks ago, I ordered all the parts needed to convert my boring black Xbox Controller into something more exciting, a Fluttershy controller!
Well, today they arrived in the mail
So, I got all the parts out, pushed back my keyboard so I could have a work area....With Formare Fluttershy watching over the build, closely.
I also got the special screw driver I had, that's required to take a wireless controller apart.
Let the disassembly begin!
There's ALWAYS a screw hidden under a sticker, somewhere...on electronic devices. It also tends to void the warranty. I'm such a rebel.
(I've taken Xbox controllers apart before. So I knew it was there.)
The kit came with those black Trigger supports, but I couldn't get the white ones off, so I gave up and stayed with the white ones.
On with the triggers and analog sticks!
Starting to come together!
Oh yea...I had the idea of using a cutie-mark tattoo from one oft hose Enterplay card packs. I tested it out on the black shell...I gave a shot of clear coat over top of it as well. Not sure if I like the outcome, I'm sure it'd be brighter with the yellow background of the new controller shell.
But I've got some decal slide paper, for model cars. I may run that through my printer to print off her cutie-mark and try that, as it may work better.
Oh yea.... EXTRA PARTS! I'll be using them to make some other funky controller for my wired Xbox controller I use on my PC...it needs new analog sticks anyways...they're worn down to the bare plastic....
Also, the seller seemed to of given me double of the yellow XABY and Home buttons. As well as a set of normal XABY buttons. Kinda odd. Oh well. more parts for me!
....stitching her together, Fluttershy's tail.
So, a long while ago, my moms dog got a hold of one of my Fluttershy plushies, and ripped her tail off...I didn't have the motivation to re-attach her tail, until the other night. So tonight, I decided to give a go at it...first time stitching a plush back together...
Tell me what y'all think? I think I did pretty good for a 1st time.
I've been meaning to write this blog for a little while now, I've just kept forgetting to. But with what went on in the March Madness topic, it gave me the momentum and inspiration I needed to write it.
I hate it when I scroll through a topic, or see a status update that degrades or insults my favorite pony. Some people are complete pompous douchebags when it comes to insulting a pony as well. It's not just one thing that they'll say, which should be enough, they start a whole conversation or rant, of why "So and so" is worst pony or why they "hate" her. To me, that's just too far. That sounds like something a little kid would do, it's just not needed.It's childish to do so,and you need to grow up. You should learn to respect other characters in the show, despite their flaws.
Sure, there's ponies I really don't like, but I don't post status updates saying "hurr durr is worst pony" or "This pony should just die". It's just common sense and common courtesy to NOT do that. In a heated debate, yea I can see reason for it. But not in a random status update, or a friendly competition thread.
One reason I hate it is,you just don't do it. If you seriously hate a character THAT much that you have to post constant status updates or posts about it, or reply to said status update or post to join in on the bashing, or make topics about it.....you got problems.
Another reason I hate it is because I take those kind of insults personally. When I see Fluttershy getting bashed, or having negative comments said about her, It upsets me, makes me feel sick and I just take the insults as personal attacks, even if what was said wasn't insulting me as a person.I feel personally insulted. I take a lot of shit personally, not just someone insulting Fluttershy, or other ponies I like. I face it on a day to day basis in real life. I know I'm probably not alone on this.
I know someone is gonna reply with "Just ignore it" Well tough muffins, one cannot simply "ignore" it.
Anyways, rant over. Have some cosplayshy.
This has been a popular topic as of late. What started out as an innocent thread, of giving shout outs to some friends or other members. Has turned into the latest fiasco, on the forum. Honestly, there's no harm in that.Let people give shout outs to their fave members and friends.
The people that are over reacting and complaining about these threads are....well...over reacting and acting foolish. You don't like it? don't post. Posting and whining, just makes you look like you're begging for attention, which if it were me, would be rather embarrassing to do.
Yes, there's popularity everywhere you go....from the favourite co-worker to the favourite student or fave member of any certain group. It's childish to complain about this person or that person being popular, it won't get you anywhere. You shouldn't care who's popular or not, No matter what, I know I don't care about popularity. I'm here for ponies, and to maybe make a few friends. In High School I was one of most unpopular kids at school school, constantly picked on..etcetera, but I had my 2-3 close friends, and that's all I cared about. That's all you should care about too. as long as you have at least one good friend either IRL or online, you're doing pretty dang well.
I was a regular at local furmeets, random people who I had never even heard of or seen, knew me, if it weren't for their name badge with their fursona on it, I wouldn't of known their name without awkwardly asking them their name........I can tell you some of them wanted more than a friendly snuggle. It was scary. Not to mention i had very little time to spend with the people who I wanted to be there with, because people were CONSTANTLY bugging me, wanting to do this or play that...meanwhile I'd be busy with my REAL friends. It'd get me so frustrated that I just wanted to scream.at times, sometimes to the point where I'd get depressed and not really want to be there.
TL;DR: You shouldn't care about being popular or not, but as long as you have that one good friend, you're doing well for yourself.
I suck at ending these kinda blogs.....so...
