Some of you may not know it, so here’s the story. The whole reason I started this blog was because I wanted this particular background pony, so pretty with her little red bow and pink curls, to be given the name I chose for her. I thought that if there was an ask blog for her, people would actually know her as Florina, so I started to work very hard on it.
Of course, I knew then (and I know even harder now) that I had limits, and that this dream was very likely never coming true : what if a much more talented artist had the same idea, what if people didn’t like, what if…
But I had support. People voted for the name on the reddit poll, some because they liked it, some just to please me. It felt really good to feel supported.
But I had lost hope lately. I felt frustrated with my work, dissapointed by this tumblr, and I had actually gotten used to the idea of this green pony being called Minty Apple, Rosehip, or Apple Belle (the latter I actually liked, it wouldn’t have been too bad).
But here it is : she is Florina on the wikia. I cannot tell you how happy I am right now.
It’s not over, though, the vote isn’t closed, her name might change yet. But somehow, I’m just happy we all managed this, even if it isn’t permanent.
She is Florina to me, now, and I hope she is to you too.
TL;DR : yay! The wikia gave this pony the name I chose for her! Thanks guys, you rock!
