FiM TNtMD - Page 19: Sit down, girl by ArofaTamahn FiM TNtMD - Page 19: Sit down, girl by ArofaTamahn
[Previous][Index][Next]

* * *

So, Let us recap: Nahmat shot down Shining Armor and the royal guard, she shot down the Elements of Harmony, and most of all, she shot down Fluttershy. Now, undaunted, she does something that we only know Discord himself to have done: Face off against Celestia and Luna at the same time. If this hasn't convinced you that Arofa Nahmat is a total badass, I don't know what will.

Now, before all the Fluttershy-fans jump on me for what Nahmat did to her, let me explain. I absolutely adore Fluttershy, just not when she is being nasty. This brings me to something I'd like to say about the episode, Putting Your Hoof Down. I liked that we got an episode touching on the harmfulness of Fluttershy's extremes of behavior, and how in the end she finds a way to express herself with confidence and moderation. What I didn't like is how Rarity and Pinkie Pie attributed Fluttershy's bad behavior to the lessons she took from Iron Will. The kind of nastiness she manifested in that episode was not something you can learn in an afternoon seminar, but something that was inside her all along, and thanks to Pinkie and Rarity's well-meaning but misguided support, she never got a chance to figure that out.

Until now.

Well... this comic is sadly becoming pathetic. -_-

Also, can you spell Mary-Sue ?
And yes, I can call this ''character'' that, because so far it possess no discernible flaws, can shit in everyone's cheerio as it pleases, and apparently is more powerful than the most powerful thing because of ''reasons''.

Yeah. Not good at all, at the moment.

She's not exactly making friends, is she?

So are ''technically -_-'' Celestia AND Luna.

Technically.

Also, add the Elements of Harmony on TOP of all that... yeah... Something was clearly left out of the equation there. But whatever.

I was kinda disappointed when the wolf turned out to be an alien, I was actually hoping it was a type of god for its beauty and grace
So ignore my earlier outburst, I was delving into possible mlp religions at the time too

So, she KIND of shut down the elements of harmony.
The Rainbow blast hasn't been used against her, she just has a way of using her mind to stop you from doing what you were going to do.

Holy s***...!

well... i guess the stare isn't going to work on other worldly magical creatures... unless that thing just has a tougher stare...(being a wolf probably wouldn't be hard, and a psychic one is even worse...)

or she turned the start back onto is user... my god... so improbable but it works... though i'm not sure how... probably replaying tense memories all at once...

the details and expressions of that wolf are stunning, i can read them while it is still a small eyed wolf face...

and well, things suddenly swaped direction... for such a powerful creature, she's amazingly well spoken, patient, and polite... clever to play the edicute role in a new world... (cant spell the word...)

I completely disagree. Up until Putting Your Hoof Down, we had never seen behavior even remotely so extreme, outside of the episodes with Discord, and that was not her fault. Fluttershy is soft-spoken not simply because she is shy, but because she cares about the feelings of others. That episode, written by one Merriwether Williams, who had done work previously for the likes of Spongebob and other similar shows, went the rout of extreme and unnatural behavior for the sake of a few laughs and to make a point. I've tried to overlook the writing of that episode, but there's simply no way around it; insulting her friends so viciously and abusing her neighbors is just not something Fluttershy, the avatar of kindness, would do.

Now, I anticipate someone may attempt a counter argument, using perhaps Best Night Ever as an example. To that I would say that Fluttershy never intended any harm to the animals in question, she was simply frustrated at their rejection of her, and was trying to overcome that rejection clumsily.

I'm sorry, but there has never been a time before or since where Fluttershy has acted so absurdly out of character.

Now, one might say it doesn't matter that it was out of character, we have to accept it as canon and move on. Alright, but if we do that, we may as well accept what Pinkie and Rarity said, that it was in no small way due the corrupting influence of Iron Will that caused such behavior.

Vroknaär are a species of canid that I made up about ten years ago (I was twelve back then), evolved for the modern wolf. They possess human-like intelligence, thumbs in the place of dewclaws, and are to canis lupus as humans are to australopithecus.
