I’ve been a bit busy with some stuff, but I finally managed to sit down and do a quick (and messy) doodle based on a question I got from the recent Bodyguard!verse AU questionnaire thing. Someone was curious about the relationship between Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy in this universe, and I was actually gonna draw these two together anyway, so it’s a “kill two birds with one stone” thing. C:
SO! Here is good ol’ Jarl Fluttershy with Rainbow Dash, whom is a part of the Wonderbolts Mercenary group.
These two met when they were nothing but young little foals; Fluttershy the heir to her father’s place as Jarl of Ponyville, and Rainbow Dash a homeless, orphaned street urchin. Their meeting was actually accidental; Fluttershy and her family were on an outing around town when Shy was literally ran into by Rainbow. The filly had been attempting to outrun an outraged merchant after stealing an apple from his stand, but she wasn’t fast enough he ended up injuring her leg. Terrified, Rainbow actually cowered behind the young princess (we’ll just call her princess for simplicity’s sake), and the normally shy and quiet Fluttershy actually spoke up about the merchant’s rash actions before her parents had a chance to. The merchant was then escorted away by one of the Jarl’s guards, and Rainbow was left in the care of the royal family. Seeing how skinny and sickly she was, the family took her in.
From that point on, the two came to see each other as sisters in everything but blood, and even when their paths lead them to different occupations (Fluttershy now being the Jarl of Ponyville and Rainbow being a Wonderbolt mercenary), they still remain in contact with one another. The necklace Rainbow ALWAYS wears is a gift from Shy; it’s of one of the many symbols of the Goddess Alicorn Sisters, something of which Rainbow keeps very close to her heart.
As for the doodle itself, I always thought it’d be super cute that, when the two were greeting each other after a long time apart, they’d do a “secret” hoofshake; an affectionate headbutt while they clasped hooves. x3
As with any of the AU doodles, feel free to take this as a prompt for writing a drabble (AKA: *coughtotallydoitI’llloveyouforevercough*). And also feel free to ask me questions that you may have. Other than that, thanks for stoppin’ by! 8D
Crap. Now I want to think of different holds in Equestria. What is my mind?!
Been wanting to do an Elder Scrolls Online deal with the world of FiM: Like, one side is the unicorns, the zebras, and the elk. Another faction is the pegasi, the thestrals (bat pony), and the griffons. Third would be the earth ponies, the donkeys and the buffalo (the most strenuous of the factions).
This is too adorable for words.
Anyway, great art! I'm liking how this particular AU is turning out!
Lol, seriously though, thank you! c:
Is RD still getting pay by Rarity, even if she refuse to get pay?
Does AJ get jealous sometimes because Dash and Flutter's relationship? will she?
Do you have a head-cannon for the appledash and the pinkieflutters?
If I decide to write something, would you read spanish?
Besides Bloodhod's family and the changelings, will they have another villain?
Sorry to ask here, I still don't get how tumbrl works, and only let me one question at a time.
I like the drawings by the way!!
AJ will not, and never will, get jealous of Dash and Fluttershy's relationship because there's really no reason to be jealous. Fluttershy is Rainbow's childhood friend, a sister in everything but blood. Getting jealous of those two's relationship is like Rainbow being jealous of AJ's and Big Mac's relationship simply because they're siblings. AJ isn't petty like that.
Do you mean for the AU or my actual headcanon? If my actual headcanon, then none of the pairings that are features in any of my AUs actually exist, so there wouldn't be anything on them other than the Mane 6 being great friends of one another.
I can't read Spanish, but feel free to write something anyway.
Changelings aren't villains. They are more of a "perceived evil", in that they are seen as enemies by most but in actuality the majority of changelings aren't at all evil. It's the Locusts that are enemies to the living. Now that said, whomever the villain is ranges widely. There are rude, greedy, selfish, and cruel nobles that Queen Rarity and the others must deal with, there's the potential of the emergence of another False God, there's bandits and honor-less mercenaries that have to be dealt with, there's vague possibilities of war with other countries... the list goes on. What the story focuses on depends entirely on the writer, however, so I'm leaving it ambiguous.
Does RD still do some jobs for the wonderbolts?
And yes, she does; being Shy's bodyguard-for-hire is exactly that; a "for-hire" job. Applejack is the one who's usually with Shy at a near constant, but RD shoulders the responsibility of keeping Shy safe when the situation calls for it (for example, Shy travels to another Jarl's Hold or farther), whenever Fluttershy requests her to do so, or when Rainbow just feels like Shy could use her company alongside AJ's. In between her job as Fluttershy's bodyguard-for-hire, she still takes on assignments and such from The Wonderbolts.
There are a lot of really awesome pairings that exist in MLP fanworks, but FlutterDash will always be one of my favorites. It just makes so much SENSE, with the background that we know about between these two!
Although this isn't actually FlutterDash... at least, not in the shipping sense. These two as a pairing does make sense, but I personally prefer the two as being "bros-for-life". xD
But this is too cute. <3
I just tend to miss obviously located things that explain everything I'm searching for, so I thought I'd just make sure. ^^
SORRY ITS JUST REALLY CUTE THE FEELS
I MUST DRAW FANART OF THIS EXCEPT I SUCK
And you don't suck. I'd say go for it. c:
