A Little Bit of Everypony
Some people identify with a particular pony. “I’m just like Fluttershy” or “Twilight Sparkle and I are exactly alike.” I also find it fun to compare myself to the Mane 6. However, despite the fact that the show’s characters all have dynamic personalities, they still seem cliché enough that I can’t pinpoint a certain one to my personality.
For example, I am studious like Twilight. I love books, and reading is one of my favorite activities. Also, I care very much about what I do and I feel the need to do well in my studies. I’m definitely an overachiever like Twilight, too.
As for Rarity, she and I share a love of fashion. I run a Polyvore account devoted to My Little Pony inspired outfits and love to shop. I also make outfits for cosplay. On the darker side of her personality, Rarity is dramatic. I admit that I’m a total drama queen aND very emotional. This might not be my most positive trait, and it’s not hers either, but it seems that she can use it to her advantage. This was shown with the diamond dogs. I’m not sure if my whining is as annoying as hers. My boyfriend might disagree.
Like Fluttershy, I am extremely shy and timid. I used to be too afraid to go to my college dining hall because there would be people there. Thankfully, I’ve overcome this fear. Still, it reminds me of something she might experience. We are both very sensitive. Also, I am extremely kind and compassionate, like Fluttershy is.
Applejack is a down-to-earth country girl. Growing up in a rural area, I can relate to her farm life. I’m also honest, although it’s possibly in a bad way, because I am blunt and don’t hide my feelings despite the fact that I may come across negatively.
Rainbow Dash and I are both athletic. I love to run and was on the cross country, track, and swim teams in high school. I was never the best, but I did win a few races. And I truly enjoy competition, as does Dash.
Despite finding Pinkie Pie to be annoying, I see parts of myself in her as well. She always tries to make other people laugh and smile. I’m the one who tries to cheer people up when they’re sad. Both of us are total goofballs. Those who know me well are able to comment on my silly nature.
What ponies do you identify with? Do you associate with one, a few, or all of the Mane 6? Are there other characters from the show that you relate to? If you have any thoughts on the topic, feel free to share them in the comment section!
