Fluttershy is horrified that she will be jousting against Rainbow Dash, she is afraid of playing against the competitive pegasus pony.
This was one of my favorite moments of the episode and I felt the need to vector it. I also added more gradients to the armor this time, and made it a bit darker than Rainbow Dash's armor so it would look more like the show's and also a darker armor contrasts better than a lighter one.
It's pretty awesome how we've seen Fluttershy in sweet armor twice already, if we include the Heart's Warming Eve episode, while the closest thing to armor we've yet to see rock-solid bruiser Applejack wear were the fireproof boots.
Hilarious! Makes me think of the last episode of the George W. Bush parody series by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (creators of South Park) called 'That's My Bush!' when one of his job the title president ends up being a wrestler called 'The Mysterious Loser!'
You know I have a MLP FIM crossover Fanfic where she replaces the hero of this game [ [Fluttershy basically has his armour and weapons [He uses a Sword as a primary weapon] [He can use a shield or a Lance as a sub-weapon and he has a few Lance based moves] they are[link]

Thanks for vectoring this! I've been looking for a good picture of Fluttershy in armour so I can maybe do a cosplay/fursuit, so I can use this for reference for the detailing and stuff, if that's okay?^__^
Well, if you think of RD's options for opponents among her friends, who would be available? AJ, Rarity, and Twilight were all pretty much entrenched in their tasks and Pinkie was, well... doing Pinkie things, leaving Fluttershy. Also, now I'm trying to think of a situation where RD forced Fluttershy to do something against her will.
alright, A: She had an entire cast of able-bodied crystal ponies to choose from B:RD had forced FS countless times to do stuff against her will: -dragon watching -pegasus tornado -cheerleader just to name a few examples sometimes i'm surprised that the rest of the mane still call her a "friend", as she's the only one acting like an enormous bitch.
OK, A: The point was to entertain the crystal ponies and lift their spirits, not to have RD crush them in jousting one by one.
B: RD didn't force Fluttershy to do any of those three things. RD let Fluttershy off the hook for the dragon thing (how did Fluttershy get RD to go to a butterfly migration of all things?), RD ending up being ok with Fluttershy not helping with the tornado after their talk and she elected to do so of her own free will. In both of these cases, Twilight was pressuring Fluttershy as much as RD was. Cheerleader? Really? Fluttershy didn't want to go and cheer her friend on in the competition of her life? I will say that RD did force Fluttershy to go wait in the cider line with her, but that's about it (as far as I can recall).
my point with these examples was just to show how (no matter if she was successful) RD is trying to force her into doing things she wants to by making her feel guilty, (true, the cheering thing was far-fetched, i give you that). Towards the end of Season 2 though, she seemed to accept Flutter's character more and more, and they became exceptionally good friends, due to both of them learning from each other's characters. But in those two episodes it seemed like RD had forgotten absolutely everything about what being a good friend really means. =/
Hooray, we can agree on some things! This usually doesn't happen because most times people just really really hate/love RD too much. There definitely has been progression in their relationship for sure. RD tries to guilt Fluttershy in Dragon Quest, can't deny that (but to be fair, if I went to say, an opera for a friend, I'd expect them to go with me to a football game later on in hopes they would try something I enjoy too). In Hurricane Fluttershy, RD presented Fluttershy with the facts and wouldn't accept deceit to get out of what is more or less the civil duty of all the Ponyville Pegasi and was willing to give her a slide when she was honest. As for the season opener, I probably would have said something similar to Fluttershy post the first joust. It's really the kind of situation where everything is truly on the line and you can't accept your friend simply giving up just because it's a little rough on him/her (think back to Twilight's, "If you don't catch her, Discord wins!" moment in last year's premiere. It's the same kind of scenario, though RD usually isn't as eloquent as others when giving criticism (though great at delivering motivation/inspiration). And on another note, the longer and better you know someone, the more you'll expect out of them (typically speaking) and I think that weighs somewhat heavily in the dynamic between those two. In comparison, we learned in season 1 that RD and Pinkie apparently hardly knew each other and RD had zero expectations before spending time together in that episode.
I love discussions/overthinking awesome shows, don't you?
Oh, I agree about that for sure. I guess it's just my opinion that Fluttershy usually gets to push RD around based on most of their interactions together. Perhaps the first joust was revenge for the rib crushing Dragon Quest intro? XD
LOL Fluttershy, jousting!?!? her idea of jousting would be to flip upside down and concieve defeat! XD i love this pic, it is going into my fav's and i expect by the end of the day for this to at LEAST have 25 OR MORE compliments on it. Come on people, this pic is HILARIOUS!
