An...interesting story of how I saw this pose before vectoring it.
I spontaneously thought of the Japanese dub of MLP for no reason, and I decided to browse Season 2 for episodes I didn't yet get around to watching in that language. I ended up choosing "Hurricane Fluttershy" first because
is my favorite stallion, and I was curious to hear what his Japanese-dubbed voice would sound like. If you're familiar with this episode in Japanese, then you'd know that the scene of his one spoken line was (supposedly, at least on the version I watched) cut (Rumble's, too), and it skipped straight to the part after that, to my disappointment. His only other speaking role to date is Episode 10 of Season 4 (Rainbow Falls), so I'd have to wait until then, well, assuming it doesn't get cut.
I randomly clicked around the episode and landed on the part where Fluttershy flees for the second time, which had Cappuccino in this pose flying in the background. I went ahead and vectored it since I thought the expression fit and reminded me of someone who identifies with this pony (this is where I tag you, Ryan1942
). Of course, I ended up watching the episode in its entirety eventually, since I'm a fan of this dub, after all. Fluttershy's voice in particular. I also vectored the two other pegasus stallions that I know have this design (check below), just to be fair.
I made some changes to the hindlegs from the screenshot to fit how stallion hindlegs look when positioned like this in more recent episodes.This pony is referred to as either "Mercury" or "Milky Way"
