flutter-pony

Doctor: Too bad we can’t leave the TARDIS. Otherwise we might have been able to find a flutter pony to help.

Rose: Yeah right. Aren’t they living in isolation in Flutter Valley in this current time? Last time anypony got any help from them, it was to help them out right out the door.

I’m sure all of you who watch the new MLP thing are familiar with the ep where Rarity gets those wings?

Well, that episode spoke to me on a deep personal level for two reasons - 1) Rarity is the bomb and second only to Luna in my affections 2) when I was little, I had the Skydancer flutterpony.  And I LOVED that flutterpony, guys.  I loved it so, so much.  I gave all my old MLPs to a wee little friend of mine when I left Vancouver for the first time, and I was on the fence about giving up Skydancer (Firefly too), but I did it because I figured if they gave me that much joy, they’d probably give her a lot of joy too.  UuU

ALSO.  Holy crap, I have a Redbubble!  So like, if you feel a sudden need to have a douvet cover of this or something, check er out: http://www.redbubble.com/people/inkscribble/works/12714957-flutterpony-rarity?ref=recent-owner

Due to the recent questions on some of the other sapient creatures and species of my MLP headcaon, I decided to draw a few as a sneak peek of sorts to how they’d be. Featured her is the most common species of Flutterpony (otherwise known as the Pegafay), the giraffe, the sphinx, and a sphinx/griffon hybrid. While not full, here are brief summaries of each:

-The Pegafay, or Flutterpony, is a moderate sized creature that is related to equine however not necessarily equine themselves. They are thin, long-legged, and light with all of the majesty of a deer. The Flutterpony is very closely related to the changeling although the changeling tends to be larger, and are more “rough” in appearance. Despite being omnivorous (their favorite meat being fish), the Flutterpony is very fond of fruits and flowers, especially roses and peaches (infact, the peach and rose is very important to the Flutterpony culture, as they’re both prominent features in ceremonies such as holidays, celebrations, and mourning)

-The Giraffe in my headcanon is a sapient creature that populates Zebrica alongside the Zebras, Buffalo, Elephants, Rhinos, and hyena-like Diamond Dogs. They’d be far more flexible than the giraffe in real life and are the second-most common race in Zebrica. Their magic often revolves around the Earth element, although it’s common for giraffes to also have different sorts of magic. However, unlike Equine, the giraffes aren’t as magically inclined, and as such they focus more on the use of physical alchemy and scientific pursuits to compensate for such. It’s due to this that they are very adept at spell casting when wielding an Enchanted item (usually in the form of an enchanted gauntlet or bracelet in place of a wand or staff), so much so that they rival (and perhaps surpass) the spellcasters of Equestria. As a whole however, giraffes are very intelligent and friendly creatures and more often than not attempt to avoid conflict (but they will certainly stand up for their country if need be).

-The Sphinx is a creature native to Saddle Arabia and, in appearance, often looks like a winged big cat with the head of an equine. While not all sphinxes have them, it’s pretty common for both the male and female to have their mane growing similarly to a lion’s (I got the idea from finding out some female lions actually get manes too!). They’re large creatures (they’re typically a foot taller than the average equine) and their bodies are powerful and packed with muscle. Their magic isn’t as concentrated as Equine magic but like the giraffe, they make up for that in their abilities in Enchanting and Transmuting alchemy. Their favorite form of spell-casting equipment is the bracelet or neck ornament (necklace, medallion, collar, torc).

Then of course there’s the griffon/sphinx hybrid. In general, this pairing, regardless of which partner is female or male, will always result in this. In appearance they appear mostly sphinx with their front legs being that of a griffon instead. They also typically have more feathers to them and, courtesy of their griffon relation, stronger and more direct control over their magic.

So yeah! :3 I’ll eventually do headcanon dumps of each species with more indepth headcanon but for now I hoped you guys enjoyed the preview. As always, feel more than free to ask me any questions! ^.^

In the ep “Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3” from season 4 of MLP (the one with Rainbow Dash being tested on her Wonderbolt’s knowledge), they mention an admiral named “Fairy Flight”. Since it seems the G1 world and the G4 world are the same, I have a headcannon that Fairy Flight was a Flutter Pony.  The delphinium in her mane represents ‘heavenly’ (Flutter Ponies love their flowers). The G4 breezies are a drag and I hope Flutter Ponies exist somewhere.

So I had this lying around for a little while, and I just decided to post it before I delve deeper into my final projects for my classes. o3o

A lot of ya have been asking me about the Breezies, so here they are! My headcanon version of the Breezies. c: Again, TL;DRreaders may want to look away! There will be copious amounts of text and headcanons, yush. O:

So with that said, here we gooooooooooooooooooooo!

———————

For my headcanon, I see the Breezies as a species of Flutterpony (they’re basically the equine version of a fairy). The smallest species of Flutterpony, actually. The Flutterpony is related to equine, but they’re a smaller species of equine than most. I’ll get into that much later, when I do headcanon for Flutterponies; for now, we must explore the Breezies!

Appearance:

The Breezies are, as I’ve said, the smallest species of Flutterpony in existence, ranging between 6 to 8 inches tall. They’re generally thin, with long legs, long neck, and a lithe, almost deer-like body. Their manes tend to grow fast and are typically long and thick, and they’re covered in a dense, water-proof coat that comes in a wide range of colors. The front of their legs are covered in hard, protective scales, and sometimes said scales can grow along the backs of the breezies, but it doesn’t happen often. There isn’t much sexual dimorphism between the male and female (both has ridiculously long and thick eyelashes), however males do have ridges among their antenna while females do not. Males also tend to have larger “tusks”, or canine fangs.

Their wings can take on an appearance similar to either a butterfly’s, or a dragonfly’s, but either way their wings are pretty strong in terms of durability. They aren’t necessarily weak flyers, however they obviously have trouble navigating when faced with the world far larger than their own little realm. Their eyes have slitted pupils, and can range from a wide array of colors as well. They tend to match the color of their wings, although their wings’ membranes are pretty transparent.

Diet:

Despite how “cute” and “cuddly” the Breezie seems to be, they are actually predators. Their diet mostly consists of very tiny mammals and reptiles, tiny fish, insects, and fruits. Their teeth are designed for both crushing and tearing, so they can eat a wide range of things, from animals to insects to flora, and while they do have wings, their bodies are better designed foor running in short bursts of speed. When hunting, they tend to hunt in groups of three, due to safety in numbers and having a better advantage of catching something when with more than one. Both females and males participate in hunting.

 Their favorite meal typically consists of mosquitoes, dragonflies, tiny fish, and berries. 

Being intelligent creatures with a society and such of their own, they also have the tendency to actually cook what they catch, even though they can eat most of such raw.

Breeding:

When Breezies mate, it’s almost always for life. I’ve yet to come up with the general lifespan of a Breezie (shorter than 100, or longer than 100?)but they don’t come to sexual maturity until the age of 13. After that, they generally don’t engage in actively trying to find a mate until after the age of 18, but it depends on the Breezie. Regardless, once two Breezies mate, they will remain with that mate for the remainder of their lives. If one dies, the other will refuse to take on another mate. While not common it isn’t unheard of for a Breezie, if mated (now widowed)but without foals, to die from a broken heart.

A Breezie tends to have only one foal at a time, however it isn’t uncommon for them to have twins or triplets. A Breezie foal is little more than tiny ball of fluff when born, with equally small and useless wings and short antenna. After about a month they will begin to grow their manes and tails out, with can quickly grow in length due to its growth rate. Typically a foal has almost comically long legs and huge, floppy ears. Said ears won’t start to fully stand erect properly until they’ve reached the age of 5.

Behavior:

Breezies are very intelligent creatures, just as smart as any other sentient being, and they thrive in their own sort of society. While there are a good number of them in existence, they are considered a rare species due to their elusiveness and tendency to only venture out of their “realm” once a year. They are highly protected by the Equestrian Society for the Preservation of Rare Creatures.

The Breezies function very much like tribes or small cities. Each society has a leader, a chief or a mayor (male or female, it doesn’t necessarily matter)if you will, and a small council of about three or four other trusted Breezies to keep the order among their members.

Now, this part gave me a little trouble and I’m thinking off the top of my head. So bear with me here. So once a year, the Breezies gather a flock of their strongest fliers to venture outside their own home and into “outside” Equestria in order to travel to central location miles away. This location is relatively unknown by many aside from the Breezies (in that only Breezies can reach it), and is where they go to collect a magic-based pollen. While their own world can sustain itself on its own pollen, this sort of pollen is necessary to better help the Breezies’ lands flourish. The journey to and from this location is about a week’s worth, and is pretty harrowing for the Breezies.

The Breezies themselves are very sociable creatures. While a single Breezie can live without company, it’s often a very lonely existence, as well as very dangerous. Breezies, specifically when traveling outside of their own realm, must keep in large flocks in order to protect themselves all the better, be it from something as simple as the wind to something like a bird of prey. 

Habitat:

Breezies’ natural habitat is a realm of sorts that is blocked off from the “outside” world of Equestria via a portal. It isn’t a separate realm so much as it is an area isolated via barrier magic, however it is very protected, enchanted even, and far more manageable for a Breezie to live in. It isn’t home only to the Breezies, however. They have a variety of wildlife existing within it as well, mainly very tiny rodents, insects, and small little fish in their waters.

While typically tropical with very mild weather, the breezies’ home does still experience weather and seasonal changes with the rest of the world, seeing as they are still a part of it. Rain, snow, winds, all of it. The enchantment of the lands protects the Breezies from most of the harsher weather, but that doesn’t mean they won’t experience a snow storm, or a thunderstorm.

WEEW! And there you go. O: I hope that was okay, for the most part I just kinda did some improvising; I may come back and add some stuff, but I dunno really.

But until then, if you have any questions feel free to ask. And thanks again for stopping by!
