Love Under The Apple Tree by ThePhoebster Love Under The Apple Tree by ThePhoebster
Yes people, I'm a Brony. I :heart: My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Its an awesome show. :iconso-awesomeplz: Lauren Faust did a fantastic job so she did. :D It reminds me of all the great cartoon shows from the 90s. Those were the days. When I heard they were making a new series and Lauren was the one behind it I was quare excited.

And eeyup, I ship Fluttershy and Big Macintosh together. :love: Honestly people, I didn't think I would get into the whole shipping thing with My Little Pony but oh janey mac was I wrong. The very idea of these two as a couple just makes me squee so much its madness. Uh oh, I feel a squee coming on. Excuse me for a moment....................Ah there we go. :XD: I always thought they would be cute together and then I saw all the fan art for them and I was completely hooked. Fluttermac FTW!

Fluttershy is my favourite pony out of the pony gang followed closely by Apple Jack and Big Macintosh.

Now on to the pic. This is just my own interpretation of how Fluttershy and Big Macintosh first met. This scene takes place a few days after Fluttershy earned her cutie mark. I'd imagine she would have to return to the Cloudsdale but she'd head back down to the ground to explore whenever she got the chance. So one day while Fluttershy was exploring, she came across an orchard. Curiosity got the better of the little filly so she ventured in. She couldn't believe the size of the orchard and all the different types of apples there were. As Fluttershy continued exploring, she wasn't paying attention where she was going and as she passed a tree, she bumped right into the owner of the orchard, little Big Macintosh and thus, their friendship began. :aww:

This took me a few days to finish but it was worth it. I actually learned quite a bit while working on this. I understand Photoshop a bit better now but I still have a long way to go. But I'll get there eventually. I just gotta be patient. And I'm not used to drawing with my tablet so that's why everything looks a bit choppy. Sorry about that people. ^^;

This is the cutest FlutterMac pic I've seen. It's so hard not to join in on the shipping when they just look so cute thrown together.
