F:E Fates -- Fluttershy by tomcullen F:E Fates -- Fluttershy by tomcullen
The next installment in the fates of FO:E's Ministry Mares: Fluttershy, Mare of the Ministry of Peace...or what's left of her.

When I first started this project, I knew exactly how I would do Fluttershy. I've been a Fallout fan my whole life, and the correlation with Harold was not lost on me. If the positioning looks familiar, that's why.

Also, **SPOILER ALERT** when I reached this point in the story, I recognized the Harold reference and moved on. It wasn't until some time later, when I was watching Over A Barrel, that I really shat a brick.

I'm proud of this one...there, I said it...and yet I'm submitting it before I'm happy with it. Sometimes you have to just call it "done," right?

If there was one pony most singularly responsible for what happened on The Last Day, it was Fluttershy, with her insane inability to believe that giving the Zebra the secret of the Megaspell would end in anything other than calamity.

She hated war and thought that anyone else sane would also hate war.

She forgot that those who wage war are frequently far from sane and that their hate and fear of their enemies may outweigh all other fears, even the fear of death itself.

For her blindness, her foolishness and her arrogance in believing she knew better than all others, it was Fluttershy's destiny to endure two-hundred years of living hell. When, against all hope, she was rescued by a unicorn who was in spirit the daughter she was never blessed to have in the flesh, she dedicated all he remaining days to try to make amends for her final, disastrous mistake.

I do understand and appreciate what you're saying, but it's worth pointing out: this was Equestria's first war. Ever. So while we understand that war is insane, and those who willingly wage war are by association insane, Fluttershine's mind couldn't go there. She believed the best of everyone. It was simply beyond her comprehension that anyone would be willing to kill thousands at a time.

I remember when the Cold War winded down. People made strong, impassioned arguments for Mutually Assured Destruction, and some could argue that it worked. I don't think Fluttershy did anything more horrible than hold ponies and zebras up to an ideal that they failed to meet.

What a sad fate. Did Angel got petrified by a cockatrice? Or did someone place a statue of her pet near her so she would always be reminded of him.

First one, though she does keep him as a morbid keepsake after she was restored to pony form.

Oh she returns to normal. That is a relief. I thought she died liked that. Too bad about Angel though. Thanks for telling me that.

No problem, though I recommend reading the story itself if you haven't already, it's a good read.

I always imagined just an oddly colored tree. Perhaps for the sake of my own heart. :,(

If nothing else, this I truly a horrific fate. To watch helplessly as your world burns and being unable to do anything about it.
