Sorry to bother you, I was really upset that night I wrote that. I am a lot like Fluttershy and was upset to know that so many people hate her. You said she deserved everything she got. Which she was bullied. I was as well so I was worried that I deserved it too, because I wouldn't wish it upon anyone.
Ah, OK. I understand. I have similar problems as her so I kind of take it personally when people say cruel things about her. I know it seems childish, but when you act a lot like someone it's easy to connect yourself to them you know? I'm really sorry for bothering you.
The only antagonists I like are flim and prince blueblood. I don't particular "hate" any main characters but I do have a favorite to least favorite. 1.I wish I was as organised as her. She has no shame in admitting shes smart but doesn't act superior about it.
2 I like to think of myself as honest as possible without trying to hurt anyone to bad. Plus who doesn't like apples? 3 I would have soooo many cavities from partying with her if she was human but I'd likely be laughing to much to care. Shes goofy but I like how she does put into consideration how she acts makes others feel even though not 100% of the time. 4. Cocky characters that are all talk with nothing to back it up get on my nerves but she definitely has walk to go with her talk and I love that when things are hairy she thinks of herself second. 5. Like pinkie she has a kinda bipolar courage one minute it can be there and others its more or less gone. I kinda believe in the changeling battle she was at least low bucking with one leg with how low to the ground she was so she has some fight to her even if mildly. If she was a person she'd likely make a good nurse or vet. With how people reacted to the definition of the term"derpy" its not likely they'd be able to bring up the word bipolar for either her or pinkie but its implied enough to not need to be said. 6. No offence she is a good protector of her sister and the fact that she makes her own money rather then spending her parent's while bragging is great. To me she only seems generous when she gets something from it.Plus yes I know this is a cartoon but honestly even in most cartoons if a character is whining at their kidnapper they'd be gagged. These characters aren't meant to be flawless and none are which is why I like each one but your free to dislike them as you please.
7. Only thing more annoying then a bragger with nothing to brag about? A bragger with nothing to brag about while talking in a nasal voice in the third person.They showed a month old foal do better magic then her 2 bit light show in S2. I am so glad she only appeared once. ______ Cute picture, it kinda looks like you based her on one of those shy guy creatures in Mario.
I like rarity cause she has a real personality that an actual person can have.
Fluttershy unrealisticly shy.has no flaws other then fear.she overreacts when told that she was a pushover.turns into a bitch for no good reason.and besides the fans of fluttershy are too protective and won't respect a persons opinion.....
I respect your opinion, but I just wanted to say that I act like Fluttershy. Bullying can do that to someone, which Fluttershy WAS bullied(And I was as well) . I'm sorry if I seem harsh, but I find that you're being a bit harsh and I feel a connection with the character, so it kind of seems like you hate me too.
Fear is actually a HUGE flaw. I imagine she doesn't even go out in public much since she's so afraid. Could you imagine the idea of so many people that could look your way glaring at you, laughing at you, or just asking you a question? It's tough being afraid of so many things. I have to live with it and I'm amazed she can go on with her life. She is also noted for being physically weak, which is a flaw. I am also weak, but for different reasons Fluttershy and I were both teased for our physical problems.
I agree that they made her absolutely terrible for one episode, but sometimes I lose my temper even if I don't want to.
When you get told your flaws mercilessly even when you try your hardest to deal with them how would you react? I honestly think it's irritating, trying so hard only to be told all the time it's not good enough.
It's not unrealistic if it actually happened, and it all happened to me. I'm sorry, but this is getting too personal to me. It's your opinion. I love the picture, but I don't think I can continue posting this. Sorry for wasting your time. Also, I actually like Rarity too, she just seems a bit too selfish at times.
Alright. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have listed my feelings out my feelings. I just wanted to give you a bit of info on my side of the story. I'll try to just forget about all of this and enjoy the picture. Your series is very well done.
Now is this canon Blueblood or a fanon Blueblood? Because I can sort of see what you mean if you are talking about fanon Blueblood... but I don't understand what you mean if you are talking about canon Blueblood.
If you could present some evidence of personality, that would help me understand what you mean.
From what I see, he was just a series of punchlines about how ungentlemanly he was (his only personality was to force Rarity to do the things one would expect a gentlecolt/prince to do). And his only lines were just him being a condescending jerk. He didn't even have any real motivation or reason for being such a jerk, he just was. (Again, this is only CANON Blueblood, fanon Blueblood is a whole different story).
So could you elaborate on him having a real personality a bit more? It is entirely possible I missed something.
I do respect your founded opinions. You did well in other comments to elaborate your issues with Fluttershy, and I really think that (if you put those reasons in the description), you would find people a bit more respectful.
For instance, I respect that you hate Fluttershy. That is fine. You state that her only flaw is fear, that is not true, and is not an opinion. She is shown to be a terribly weak flyer even when not being watched, she is cripplingly shy (could be counted as fear), cannot stick up for herself, and seems to be dismissive/unwilling to point out the flaws of others. Actually, that could all be lumped other fear if one were rather broad...
Hmm... I do suppose her flaws are rather dependent on fear, moreso than the other ponies. But two flaws seems to be a recurring theme with ponies:
Pinkie Pie's flaws pretty much amount to 'too excitable'
Twilight Sparkle's flaws are 'not a people person', and 'prone to obsessing over things'.
Rainbow Dash's flaws are 'rushes in,' 'braggart', and 'really blunt'.
Applejack's flaws are that she has trouble asking for help, and can't bear to let others down.
Rarity's flaws are ... actually it's a bit odd: she's 'too generous', 'perfectionist', and 'control freak' (she freaks over odd things). 'too generous' is a bit of a Mary Sue flaw, no? I mean, if 'too kind' is one, 'too generous' is another - both have demonstrable downsides though... so either they both are or neither are.
So ya, it isn't as though Fluttershy's rather-limited flaws are all that unusual for the mane 6. I respect your opinion of her, and I won't deny her only real flaws are 'physically weak' and 'fear' (if you are broad)... but one must not be blinded to the fact she isn't alone in having 'few flaws'.
I have respected your opinion. I have never said your opinion itself was wrong - opinions by definition cannot be wrong - but that you had a few innaccuracies in the facts supporting your opinion. It is to be expected though - if we never made mistakes, we wouldn't be human! That's why I like discussions - it helps me figure out new things, and helps me see the world a bit clearer. Like your point on Fluttershy's (very short) list of flaws is interesting, as is your point that she is unrealistically shy: i never really thought of it like that! It is neat to see these kinds of things.
