Headcanon and lore

Basically this some information is setting up some headcanons that may or may not be different than what people are used too.

Fluffies Behaviour

In regards to how a fluffy behaves. They are designed to be the perfect pet though incredibly stupid. They find ways to hurt themselves, get themselves stuck in things, and always seem to find a way out of it but are none the wiser. Basically idiot savants in a way.

The biggest thing about a fluffy though is companionship. A fluffy needs friends and attention or they will freak out and get lonely. A lonely fluffy is a very paranoid fluffy and they begin to get depressed. They can be occupied with other things such as toys, television, or stuffed animals to keep the loneliness at bay.

Fluffies aren't cowards, but they don't put up a fight. They would rather run and hide when any danger presents itself. They are miniture horses and thus can be a bit fast. They are not as fast Mercury however (The legendary fluffy who ran across America telling everyone where sketti-land was.) It should be noted that a fluffy stallion will get defensive and protect his family.

They can learn things and despite what everyone says they have a pretty good memory. They can be trained but it isn't easy. They are good at remembering things, but still incredibly dumb. They will realize that shitting leads to a beating with the sorry stick.

Regarding Ferals

No matter how much effort we have put into it. Ferals continue to exist in large numbers. After the fall of Cleveland we believed that 98% of fluffies were killed. Fluffies are excellent at hiding themselves and their numbers have quickly recovered and steadily grown. Despite predators, nature, and human abuse. Fluffies are thriving, but aren't living comfortably.

Smarties as we know them are very rare and most feral herds are lead by a fluffy who does care. The herds that do have smarties that bully them into submission are rare and would rarely force their way into human territory. Herd Leaders are forced to lead fluffies and will usually make the toughest decisions based on experience. The oldest fluffy is usually a herd leader because he knows how to survive the longest.

A herd leader will usually pass on knowledge to his foals about certain things such as when falls turns to winter, certain symbols and signs to look out for, and how to deal with runts and other problems within the herd.

Ferals are fluffies who have basically become wild and while they are not as hellgremlinish as presented by others. They do revert to weird instinctial habits.

For Example: A feral fluffy values pretty colors and more unique babies than a domestic fluffy because they believe that a human will be more likely to take them home and become their new owner if they have pretty colors. This is common, but it becomes twisted when a fluffy's prettiest baby is basically just a copy of itself. The reason is feral fluffies become far more selfish, but won't go out of their way to hurt another fluffy...unless a herd war starts. A fluffy herd would try to avoid conflict and would rather make friends than fight.

Another breed of fluffy has taken root recently and these are the hellgremlin fluffies that we all come to hate. The reason for their recent increase in number is because of the large amount of fluffies surviving in the wild. These fluffies are aggressive, hateful, and forceful. A regular herd will usually be forced to fight against a Hellgremlin herd to protect their land and others. These are the baby-raping, land demanding, rapists that almost ruined the booru. They are rare, but do make apperances every now and then.

Fluffy Biology

Have you ever seen a diseased fluffy? This is the most unique feature of a fluffy because of their bizarre DNA structure. Most fluffies in the wild succumb to the elements, parasites, or infections (or predators) but fluffies rarely get diseased. This is because of the "Three-stooges Syndrome" where all the diseases in their system are perfectly balanced and cannot harm the fluffy. This is how fluffies force each other to eat their shit and cannablise each other without fear of disease or damage to their bodies. This was not a planned feature by Hasbio but there were no plans to remove it... at least not until people ate fluffy meat (more on this later)

A fluffy's lifespan averages out at 5 years because of all the death that surrounds them. They die easily and often. Pending any accidents, murder, or incidents. A well taken care of fluffy can live for about 8 to 10 years. The oldest fluffy in existence is currently 16 years old, and he has been stuck in the "wan die" loop for 3 years.

Fluffies are herbivores and they should not be eating meat. A healthy diet of proper kibble, vegetables, and fruit can prevent the rancid fluffy shit we all know about. Instead it will be more of toothpaste like and have little to no smell.

A fluffy should be walked daily to keep their legs and weight healthy. Despite this many owners just use a litterbox because they cannot be bothered to walk a fluffy. So this knowledge is only know to hugboxers.

Fluffy Pregnancy

A mare will be pregnant for about 2 months. Originally Hasbio wanted to have a mare pregnant for a month maximum, but that resulted in weaker foals and ones who would die much more often. It should be noted that because of how fluffy biology works they will always give birth to bigger litters. It should be noted that larger litters result in more unstable foals. Runts, stillborn, deformed, and derped fluffies become more common the more a mare is bred (especially if done continually without letting them rest.)

The first litter will usually be between 1 - 3 foals. This is difficult to spot. A fluffy's stomach will be a bit bloated but they can still walk around. Running is a chore, but the fluffy can still easily take care of themselves. They are mildly active and will still play with blocks and balls often.

The second litter will be between 2 - 4 foals. The fluffy's stomach is now touching the floor. The fluffy will have a hard time moving and usually drag themselves around. They will spend most of their time sleeping and on their side. They won't be as active.

The third litter will be between 4 - 8 foals. The bloated fluffy that needs help moving. Their legs no longer touch the ground at all and their body is swollen up like a ball. You see this in feral herds and in breeding mills. These fluffies have been giving birth a lot. Their litters are always large.

Fluffy Aging

Newborn: Fresh out of the womb. A foal won't be able speak at all. They will chirp and peep. Most fluffies will understand what these sounds mean. They can drink their body weight in milk, and will usually spend most of their time sleeping and being around their mother. They can't walk and will rely on their fluffy parents to carry them by their scruff and put them on the mare's back which is usually the safest place.... usually.

A fluffy's tail and mane haven't come in yet. They are the size of kittens at this stage, and this stage will last only about four to seven days depending on how much milk they get.

Childhood: The foal is starting to talk and walk around. Domestic foals will probably start running around at this stage. They will start forming words early on and will have a full vocabulary near the end. They will rarely challenge authority or display any kind of dominance and instead focus on staying with their parents. They will begin to wean at this stage and move away from their mother's "milkie places" when teething begins.

This is the proper stage where you must teach a fluffy the rules of the household. What they are and aren't allowed to do. How to make good poopies and what is dangerous. They are very influencial at this stage and if they run into a feral fluffy they can be easily influenced.

This stage lasts about a month to a month and a half. Early on this stage their mane and tail start to come in. They go through a growth spurt in this phase where they become about the size of a common housecat.

Adolesence: This is the time when a fluffy begins to display independence. They will go through puberty, have their final growth spurt, and finish developing their personalities. They will test the waters with this and challenge some of the rules you set. You must put your foot down and keep them in place. Don't let them walk over you. They become very demanding and rebellious at this stage. A fluffy going through puberty will be horny. Both stallions and mares will want special huggies or babies. This is dangerous because if encountered with a feral herd they might run away with them or try and introduce them to you as their special friend. Be on your guard and if you take them out provide them with supervision.

This stage lasts two weeks. The development of fluffy speeds up and they go through their final growth spurt to where they are the size of a corgi.

Adulthood: This is the most common stage for a fluffy that we see. They have themselves and their personalities established. They know what they want to do and how they want to live. Keep in mind despite calling this "Adulthood" these fluffies still have the mindset of children. They will play with toys, get scared of the dark, and act like a typical fluffy.

Adulthood lasts about 5 to 6 years.

Elder: A fluffy that is older than 5 years. Will become an elderly fluffy. They won't run around and play as much. They will be a bit more slow and enjoy watching tv as well as sleep much more often. They will still be excited to talk to humans and still do their best to please you but be gentle. Their fluff may get streaks of grey fluff.

This stage lasts until their final days. When a fluffy dies of old age. They will usually enjoy spending their final moments with their owner. If not they will find their favorite toy or spot and let themselves drift off to sleep.

Regarding Other things..

Certain features and behaviours in fluffies have been bred out. Most notably fluffsplions have been removed. It it virtually unheard of that a fluffy suffers through this. The actual cause is unknown..

Microfluffs and Sea-fluffes do exist. Both of them are thriving currently. Microfluffs are a risk to normal fluffies and home owners because of their size. Regular fluffies can easily mistaken them for "smaller babies" because of their size, and home owners will find themeslves infested with these guys often. Certain feral herds have been known to use microfluffs lately to scout areas and see how dangerous it is..

Anonymous1: Interesting take on fluffies! I like it.

Fluffiest_Donut: @Anonymous: Thanks! I'm trying to mix the old lovable fluffies with some modern day ideas about fluffies. I'm trying to avoid falling into the hell gremlin pit by basically making them their own subspecies.

GewawtofWivia: Wow this is incredible. I love to hear the collapse of Asia, and perhaps to even help write on a board-wide collab project for it.

Jellenheimer: Maybe it could be stickied? That's one of the most coherent and sane headcanons ever written.

Soulvei: The gestation period of many animals is a month. Hedgehogs take a month. I used to breed them. They come out just fine. I prefer the month because it makes fluffies more prolific.

Anonymous2: @Soulvei: Yeah, I don't like that part at all. IMO it should be more like three weeks, slightly faster than a rabbit's gestation period. Fluffies are very prolific and their foals are incredibly disposable. And they're... poorly put-together. Doesn't make a bit of sense for these creatures geared toward minimum-quality-threshold mass production to actually take longer to reproduce than many superior and vastly more capable animals.

Fluffiest_Donut: @Soulvei: @Anonymous: The main reason I decided on two months is because I wanted fluffies to be.. sort of animal like, but not at the same time. They are a combination of a variety of animals and as a result they have an unusual gestation period. The one month thing will be expanded upon in another a lore dump.
