I was watching winter wrap up today and a thought occurred. With all the animals in hibernation, what does Fluttershy do through the winter? Sure there might be some animals that don't sleep through it, but most of them do. And what about Angel Bunny? In the episode we see other bunnies coming out of their holes, so does Angel sleep through the winter to?

 

What are your thoughts?

My guess would be that she watches "breaking bad" or "Mad men" as her secret obsession ;) 

 

Lol, but honestly, i don't really know, maybe just rests? 

 

While you are thinking, here is a very cute picture!

Speculation time! *duldiduldidu!*

Let's start with the facts of which some you have allready said.  "To see what is not there gaze upon what is."

Has little to no income. (What is her source of income anyway?)
Barely has anything to do.

Can't grow crops for food.

There is no zoo or equivalent in Ponyville.

 

My guess?

I'd say either she travels and maybe helps animals wherever she can. Or she works part time at the pet clinic in Ponyville seen in secret of my excess. The last one I think is the most possible one.

That's a very good question.  Some people seem to think I'm a Fluttershy expert.  But I'll be honest...I don't know the answer to that more than anybody else who has chimed in thus far. 

 

 

Has little to no income. (What is her source of income anyway?)

Unlike earth, the ecosystem in Equestria needs much more help to keep going.  My educated guess is that the government funds ponies like Fluttershy for animal care. 

 

Like Neutral Page said, not all creatures hibernate.  But there are fewer animals needing assistance this time of year.  Her garden wouldn't need tending to either.  There's just extra time and opportunities for her to do other things.  She probably works on her nice sewing skills too.

Not all animals Hibernate ya know. Dogs for example. there are even some snow birds who migrate With the winter instead of away from it. So she takes care of them.

Winter is when Fluttershy spends a lot of time in her shed. I have no idea what she does in there. But she always says, "Stay out of my shed."

 

So feel free to find out. But I'm not going in that shed.

I figure that Fluttershy probably takes a freaking break over the winter, considering that she has to deal with animals the rest of the year, which is no easy task.

 

She probably just sits back, relaxes, and enjoys a nice cup of tea with a side of toast.

She probably just hibernates with her animals in her cottage. Since, she likes to wake up the animals before Spring comes. She stays in her cottage during the winter.

Fluttershy hibernates with her animals?

 

I dunno why, but that's just hilarious to me. I doubt she stays in her cottage all winter, though, since she still has friends she can interact with, not to mention she can help look after other things or have some fun now that all the animals are sleeping.

She now has more time for her heists. Less questions about all the high value traffic going through the house, too.

 

Angel is still up, though. He will never stop.

Ah yes, Fluttershy and her dastardly heists...

 

Angel is definitely an asset, since he can blend in with the winter snow. No doubt Rarity is yet another one of her partners, her white coat allowing her to blend in as well. She probably smuggles her stolen merchandise through the warm homes of the hibernating animals, relying on their sleeping bodies to steal the stolen goods.

idk, I would guess she helps with the winter animals, making sure bears didn't get woken up or something.

 

As for income, maybe she just lives off the land?

Fluttershy probably saves up money for the winter though, kind of like how the Apple family relies on cider sales to get through the winter. If not, her friends probably could help her out with whatever money they've saved as well.

 

But... and you didn't hear this from me... Fluttershy actually steals stuff with help from Rarity and Angel and sells it to underground gangs of Diamond Dogs and Changelings... but uh... like I said, you heard nothing...

Idk I mean she would have some animals since they all don't hibernate, and she has time to spend with her friends, she could also read or maybe sow or some other random hobby she can do in her cotage idk.

 

Maybe fluttershy hibernates to :P

Showing what she does could make a great episode.

 

To somewhat follow a previous formula, you start with a gathering of the Mane 5 during the wintertime, and Spike asks where Fluttershy is. "It's winter," says Twilight. "With all the other animals asleep, she probably spends a lot of time in her house, drinking tea."

 

(Then it switches to Fluttershy, setting out for a trek in the middle of a harsh snowstorm. She walks miles and miles away to a gigantic cave filled with hibernating bears. Turns out, she goes there each winter to check on the cubs while the adults are asleep. Sometimes they wake up and need a lullaby or a bedtime story to get back into hibernation mode. On one occasion, maybe she finds one of them has a bad cold, so she tends to it...and the adults wake up, totally unaware that she does this every year. They roar and threaten her, and hhe has to convince them that she's only there to help. At the end, she does, and everyone's cool.)

 

And then she makes her trek back. The Mane 5, having talked about missing her, knock on her door and find her all cosy, drinking tea. "See Spike? Just like we said." "Yep", says Fluttershy - with a wink.

She Probably checks on the hibernating animals, makes sure they're okay. She might do some seed starting indoors for Springtime as well. Maybe she knits little hats for the winter animals... or cleans the shed.

That...

 

Is such an awesome freaking idea that it's unbelievable. Fluttershy would gain multiple rep points with me if this actually happened.

NOT ALL ANIMALS HIBERNATE.

What's with this automatic assumption that there are exactly zero critters awake in the winter?

Well she spends a lot of time with the animals so I would think she would keep watch over them as they sleep.  Then wake them up when winter is over.  Though not all animals hibernate so some may keep her company.

Of course there are animals that don't, but let's all be honest here...

 

Fluttershy doesn't give a buck about those animals.

 

Naw, I'm just joking. That's a good point, so I guess Fluttershy would just spend her time tending to those animals during the winter months.

... Although, the significant decrease in animal population would give her more free time for doing things like, say... making snow bunnies!

I'd kind of like to see Fluttershy start talking to those snowbunnies, and Rarity, Pinkie, and Dash getting incresingly more concerned looks on their faces...

 

(Derpy can stay where she is. Snow muffins rule!)

I think that either Fluttershy secretly faps to porn during the winter or help forest animals hibernate.

 

The first one sounds more interesting for some reason...
