toynota10 asked: I love your work so much. When are you gonna start making comics for the Dan vs tumblr again?
Thanks for being a fan! But to answer your question, I really don’t know… I hate to say it, but I think it’s near the end. There’s absolutely no comic ideas coming to me anymore. I don’t even get questions I can easily answer.
But I’ll always give him a cameo in Fluffle Puff Tales. And I do have the occasional idea for Dan Vs FiM animations I’ll try to do. But sadly, I can’t do a lot of those either. He requires a lot more resources and time than a simple ball of fluff.
Crazier things have happened, though. So I’ll leave the blog up. But for now, Dan Vs FiM is basically just a secondary blog to Fluffle Puff.

honourable-evil asked: Alright, then what do you think of Colgate, Fluffy?
Funny enough, I tend to call her by a different name as well. Which would be “Minty Fresh.” It sounds a little more original than just using a toothpaste brand. But at the same time still has a subtle implication of being toothpaste. “Minuette” is kind of cute, too. And I believe that’s her more official name.
Anyway, she’s kind of neat. The brushy thing is silly enough to enjoy from time to time and I rather like her color scheme and design. But other than appearance, she’s a bit like Derpy, too. A little too much fandom for me.
Honestly, I just like all of the background ponies as background ponies. No elaborate character, personality, or back story. Maybe a line or two here and there. But mostly I like to know them as those cute, colorful ponies who cross the screen time to time or are occasionally up to some kind of silly shenanigans. Just enough to make them unique, but simple enough to keep them subtle background fillers.
It feels more natural. To me, anyway.
But I prefer things to be simple and sweet.
ultra-thunderstruck asked: Fluffy, do you like Derpy?
Personally, I prefer to call her Ditzy Doo. It sounds more like a pony name rather than a slang term or a meme. But I digress.
I don’t mind her, though. But only to a point. I liked her more when she was a background filler with subtle roles. Not this “Where’s Waldo” thing or the fandom obsession. Honestly, Fluffle Puff gets more questions about Derpy than all of the other characters combined. It’s kind of disappointing at times. There’s so many great and wonderfully created characters in the show, but sometimes it feels like a lot of the fans forget or even ignores them.
I mean, I could just be in one of those areas of the fandom where there’s far more Derpy fans. Who knows.
But that’s my opinion, anyway.
Apologies if I came off as rude or ranty to anyone.
One last update!
Had this poll on my tumblr for a while and been meaning to post the results, but it looks like I’m gonna try to go to Bronycon this year.
It’s hard to believe that all 1,658 of you are going, but I hope I can meet at least a few of you.
I’m not really sure how attending is going to work, though. It’s doubtful I’d be panel worthy. Plus it’s probably too late or I wouldn’t be able to afford it anyway. I’m not going to be able to afford a hotel room either…
So I’ll probably show up like everyone else and hang out in the crowd for a day. Maybe two if I decide to just sleep in the car. It’s only a couple hour drive, so why not?
I’ll probably wear a Fluffle Puff button/name tag or something subtle like that.
I dunno. I’ll figure the whole thing out sooner or later and make a post sometime before the convention. Suggestions welcome, too.
Anyway, I’m sure you’re getting tired of these boring text updates so I’ll get back to updating at least Fluffle Puff within the next day or two.
thesilverhairedlass asked: DUDE THERES SOMEONE IMPERSONATING YOU ON IG
I don’t know what IG is, but it’s not really surprising considering there’s also 5 of me on Twitter and a bunch of Youtube accounts.
So if you, or anyone reading this, must know, I barely go anywhere. It’s mainly tumblr and Twitter. Sometimes Youtube and deviantArt. Basically, all of my official accounts are on the right side of my personal tumblr. I’ll also occasionally go on Ponychan, but usually just on /gala/ or /chat/ and it only lasts for a few posts. But that’s literally it these days.
So if you see “me” on any websites other than what I just said, I can pretty much guarantee it’s not me.
thelimeofdoom asked: Hey what program did you use to animate that Fluffle Puff apple pie vid? it was really good! Was it Flash? If so was it by hand or with puppets?
Flash CS5 using models I’ve personally made.
But, depending on the scene, sometimes I’ll do things by hand.
teehexploder asked: hey do you do livestreams and shit so I can have an opportunity to hang out with you and become your best friend in the world (considering we're both hopeless tumblr artists)
I don’t do livestreams anymore. But you’re welcome to add me on Skype or something. All my names are right there on the side of my profile for anyone to add.
i luv u fluffy
can we be frens?
