((I'm gonna answer the leftover questions from the Rarity thread here, just so as to not take up two threads.))
Rarity,Do you think Fluttershy is shy?
Well yes, of course. But that's just her way. Nothing wrong with it at all, and when she does speak up she makes for a delightful conversation partner.
Sweetie Belle seems to admire you a lot and would like to be just like you. What is your opinion on that?
While it is lovely to see her looking up to me, I do wish she would focus on something she's good at instead. Maybe she'd actually earn a Cutie Mark that way.
How did you feel like when you were like discorded?
It was quite unnerving, being unable to control myself like that. And it was tiring lugging around that stupid rock all the time!
