Now that we can have fluffies on a pony board again, let's have a classic fluffy thread like in the good old times. Original fluffies only, no /b/-tier hellgremlins.What are fluffy ponies?
In short, fluffy ponies are a Happy Tree Friends -style comedy about horrible things happening to ridiculously cute and friendly creatures.
In full, it's an universe set in the near future, where the wild success of MLP lead Hasbro to create a subsidiary called Hasbio to create the perfect pet; a living, talking pony toy. Before the development of fluffies was finished, PETA raided the facility and released the unfinished prototypes into the wild, where they bred and quickly became both popular pets and a minor nuisance.But why? Is this some kind of fetish?
No, they're just for fun, and sometimes feels. The fluffies appeal is in seeing something unbearably
cute getting a face-full of harsh reality, like dropping Carebears into the Fallout universe. The (as of yet contested) scientific theory explaining the fluffies appeal would be 'cute aggression', the same phenomenom that makes you want to squeeze or pinch cute things in general, and this is what the exaggerated clumsiness, friendliness and happiness of fluffies takes up to eleven.
For a good view of what fluffies are about, the old booru at http://fluffy.booru.org
is basically a time capsule serving as the perfect introduction to fluffies.
The new booru at http://fluffybooru.org
has become the fandoms main site, but is sullied by hellgremlins that put an end to the golden age and took over the fandom and started a years long dark age the fandom suffers from to this day. If you want to see it, please start reading the site from oldest to newest so you'll see how it started, got invaded and nearly destroyed, and what came of it.
