Willowtree eats your ships for breakfast by DocWario Willowtree eats your ships for breakfast by DocWario
Ok so forever forever I've pretty much shipped Fluttershy with a deer boy and just recently did I actually design and name him. I did this basically because all other ships aren't good for Fluttershy and also here's why this one is the best and also my deercanon

So deer in the MLP world mostly live in the woods but have more of a spirit of the woods feel then like being elves or ewoks. But They also interact with the outside world so it's not a total isolation, it can be anywhere from deer who only live in woodland villages and ascribe to a completely natural lifestyle, to those who live on the outskirts of the woods, to even those who live entirely outside of them but are like good lumberjacks and are good at respecting the woods and stuff.

Ok so They don't have cutie marks -per say- but they interpret the whire spots on their flanks in sort of a tea-leaves future telling fashion. They often times have to do with like trees and plants and streams but not all the time. Willows was about either bunnies or critters I haven't decided yet, I sort of want to make his destiny rabbit-exclusive so he can have a higher level of knowledge on them then FS but her broader knowledge of creatures surpasses his and they learn from in each other that way.

But lets move onto temperment. Deer are shy but not in a paranoid nonsensical way, they're shy in a smart protective way. The dangers they face in the woods are very real and so they have reason to always be on their toes. Willow is timid and shy but not in a dopey way, therefore he matches well with FS on a same-same easy to see surface level, but he is actually very strong and decisive which helps to lead her without it being an overpowering image.

Big Mac's a good guy but he's a farm boy and if FS marries him young she'd just be raising 4 foals on the farm and would, idk I guess get to take care of sheep. But with deerboy here they can venture off into the woods and go on hikes and adventures but it's all very natural and forest based and pretty

So this is my essay on why all of your ships are now dead because deer boy wins fluttershys heart forever. Thank you for your time.

I prefer the deers to be more like the Ewoks.

Unicorns are already considered the "Elves" in this fandom(even thought there are not many of them in the forests)

I too am fond of the idea of having sapient Deer in the MLP world as a rough equivalent to the Elves from Lord of the Rings.

NOT the Celtic Sidhe, Discord, the Wendigo's and Trollestia play that role just fine.

I always thought deer in fim style would be fantastic and you did not disappoint. I accept your deercannon though at the rate the show's been going discord'll end up being mad jealous and wish he were more than 1/10th deer.

I honestly see this as a possibility for Fluttershy. And that is too cute btw.
Sure, they'd never be able to have kids, but they just look like they'd work perfectly together.

Just watch out Shy, deers are rampant with ticks that carry lime disease D:

Deerboy wins this boating trip for 2.

I honestly think the expression on Deerboy's face is wonderful. He looks in-tune with nature and the universe. And Fluttershy looks like she adores that despite his being too connected to the earth to notice how close she is to his face. The way it's drawn is excellent. Your essay deserves an A. It's well thought-out and written pristine. Logic and flow is sound. Tastes good with orange juice too.

Just inserting my ideas here: I kinda see Deerboy as the type who loves roughing it in the nature, like camping and hiking. Survival is one of his many skills. And tho he's familiar with critters, he would be thankful for Fluttershy's help in communicating with them when misunderstandings arise.

(I developed a bad habit of calling him Deerboy. My bad.)

I think you may be sitting on gold here. Sell your idea to Hasbro maybe?

DocWario Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
Yeah, your ideas I pretty much agree'd with. I kinda saw him as being in-tune with, you know, "big nature" - able to hear the heartbeat of the earth, can predict weather from the way the leaves rattle, when a tree falls in the woods and no one's around he still winces, etc. But his skills with woodland critters is more of a, like, like they might respectfully nod to one another in passing, rather then one-on-one communication. So Fluttershy brings him, ironically enough, a bit of an outgoing spirit when it comes to critters.

And he does get fluttershy out of the house, for things like nature walks and hikes. Though perhaps he is afraid of deep water. I'm not sure if I see him Kayaking, but splashing in puddles is totally legit.

Thankee muchly :)

I'm fond of the idea of Deer in Pony-World, too, although not quite the way you've described them.

This. Is. PERFECT! It makes so much sense! Why didn't I think of that? First, Willow seems like an interesting character. And second, you basically designed the only character I could see Fluttershy falling for aside from Big Mac. And even he is not a perfect match.

Everybody make this cannon NOW. Wonderfully original idea and so darn cute to boot! I guess deer are equine per se, but they're close to buffalo, and *they* have sentience in the show. In summary, I want this to happen. New species, new adorable ship, I love it.

yeah but fluttershy forced to live on a farm sinks flutermac. Fluttermac is a fine summer romance ship. Not a good long term ship.
