So I was mowing my yard back in April (2012) when I saw a little black and orange jumping spider trying to get to safety. Naturally, I stopped the mower and helped the poor little guy get to the tall grass where I wouldn't be mowing. For reasons I still can't figure out, this simple action got me thinking about Fluttershy. One thought lead to another, my creativity took over, and this scene was formed in my mind. I drew and inked it in about two days, then left it alone until the second of November, when I painted it in one day.
As for the scenario of Fluttershy meeting a buck while gathering purple flowers in Whitetail Wood, or what she did to offend him; I'll leave the details up to speculation.
