- how did you start off in this community? tell us all the detail!
i followed The Cringe Channel on facebook because it was 2013. they posted Ginger Fig’s abortion comic and as usual, the comment section was horrified. A comment said to never google “fluffy pony” so i googled “fluffy pony” and i found the booru!
I read through art, comics, and The Fall of Cleveland mega-story before finally drawing my own comic about fluffies starting a forest fire. For no reason, i wrote THRASH in the burning trees on one panel, and i went “ok, i guess that’s my signature!” and created my booru account.
- how did you end up where you are now? share all your best and not so best stories!
I’ve been off & on through the years. In 2020, public accounting & religious deconstruction swallowed me whole. But in November of 2021, i checked the Reddit and jumped back in!
- what changes have you seen in the community and want to talk about?
I’m glad it’s less toxic & more chill than it was on the booru!
The community has gotten huge! I remember it being great if your post got 30 likes, but now that’s more like 300.
Now there are Spanish fluffies too, which is crazy! Though i am not fluent in Spanish myself, even though i should be since i’m Hispanic, it warms my heart that the community is growing to encompass other languages! I am excited for a future where fluffies of all nations will sit at the table.
I remember when a Buzzfeed article came out in 2014 about this terrible new type of MLP fanart of fluffy ponies. I remember that a lot of us were so mad at the author for talking shit about us. Idk how many people the article brought in, but more recently y’all got the ear of The Click, and i feel like so many of us now came in because of The Click’s videos. That’s been super cool to see!
- what goals do you have for the future of the community?
For myself, i want to use the fluffy community to improve my arts and my understanding of the ways that we as humans are like and unlike fluffies. Some of the most poignant stuff i’ve read has been about these dubious cartoon horses.
For the community, i would love to see it keep growing and gaining publicity among curators of cursed memes.
- if you could say one thing to someone just starting the community what would you tell them?
Welcome to FC! I will echo y’all about headcanons being open. Pls be respectful & let’s build each other up!
