Fluttershy in Wonderland by ~DrChrissy

If you haven’t heard the word, Andrea Libman did a little AMA (Ask Me Anything) over on the /r/mylittlepony neighborhood on reddit. You can click on this link here to take you over to the thread. I’ve also made a formal Q&A version of it after the page break. Questions range from voice acting related to favorite foods.

Also to point out one of the assistant editors of the BronyDoc film also held an AMA on reddit that started a tad earlier than Andrea. You can read about that here.

Q: What’ it like doing the voices of characters that are essentially the opposite of each other? Basically, do you need to do anything to prep your mind to change from Fluttershy to Pinkie Pie? (StarlightIronhoof)

A: not anymore!

——————————

Q: What’s your favorite alcoholic beverage? (Malsententia)

A: red wine

——————————

Q: You’ve mentioned that the Pinkie gasp actually hurts when you do it. Is there some drink or lozenge or activity you do after doing a gasp that relieves the pain? (OsakaJack27)

A: no no no just lots of gasping can be difficult.

——————————

Q: Have a favorite line? (arlodu)

A: “Give her time….”

——————————

Q: How did you settle on how Pinkie and Fluttershy we’re to sound? We’re you given explicit direction or were you free to settle on their tone, voice speed etc? (thenumberman)

A: I came up with my take on it during the audition and then we worked on the 2 voices to define them

——————————

Q: Honestly, what was your first thought when you hear that? (sprankton)

A: disbelief

——————————

Q: I keep reading all your posts in Fluttershy’s voice. But then I read them in Pinkie Pie’s voice. It’s strange segue. How much musical training do you have? I’ve noticed that you give piano lessons, and that you sing all of your own lines in the song? How hard is it to sing in a voice that isn’t your “normal voice”? What do you have to do to keep it different? Les Habs or Maple Leafs or Canucks? (jyhwei5070)

A: CANUCKS

——————————

Q: Wow! Andrea Libman! I know you probably get this a lot but… Do you constantly have the Dragon Tales theme stuck in your head like I do? (Parasprite)

——————————

Q: What’s your favorite take out food? (di_zz)

A: sushi.. and thai

——————————

Q: I’m looking forward to meeting you at Animate Miami! next weekend! Have you ever been to Florida before and are you excited? (Mandymew)

A: I am super excited! I went to DisneyWorld and the Space Centre when I was a kid – I’ve never been to Miami

——————————

Q: Just wanted to post a thank you for being SO frikkin awesome as best pony <3 – Also, an actual question. Do you watch the show in your own time? DOes it ever feel strange hearing your voice on an animation? (DelendaEst)

A: oh yes! it’s hard to listen to my own voice

——————————

Q: Thanks for doing this! It’s always great to hear from staff on the show. Just one question, what has it been like interacting with fans through Twitter? (pariah1165)

——————————

——————————

Q: Do you have a favorite picture that the fandom has created? Do you ever search for art of the characters that you’ve voiced? (FinalFlutter)

A: all the time! I post a lot of art on my twitter and facebook

——————————

Q: If there was on thing (or more) you could change about the show, be it the plot, the characters, or even its effect on the fandom, what would it be? (thaostra_)

A: I don’t know, it’s pretty awesome

——————————

Q: Do you work on Fluttershy’s squeaks and other noises or did you just wing them? (urbanfervor)

A: wing

——————————

Q: Do you know for sure that Andrea does the singing for Fluttershy? I know for sure Tara Strong doesn’t do Twilight’s singing parts, and several other ponies are the same way. With Fluttershy I have no idea one way or the other. (Padalock)

A: yes. I do. For sure.

——————————

Q: Did Lauren Faust have an idea going into the show who you were going to voice, or was your pony (in your case ponies) randomly assigned after you recorded for her? I’ve always been curious about the original decision process. (CallMeRarity)

A: it was an audition process like any other show – the production team (including Lauren) would have reviewed out auditions and selected their choices for the roles

——————————

Q: Besides biking, and piano lessons, what other hobbies do you have to keep you occupied when you’re not working on the show? (pezz2232)

A: skiing snowboarding running yoga cooking reading knitting volunteerings

——————————

Q: Years later would you enjoy doing Audio Episodes or Table reads for the conventions? (JoeAconite)

A: I would really like to do more table reads – we did one at the My Little Pony Project in LA and it was awesome

——————————

Q: Were there any side effects after you finished the episode “Party of One?” (DMRage)

A: What do you mean?

Q: Well, it’s all you essentially. I think he’s getting at how was the whole process? Did it affect you much? Was it weird in any way? (cantrememberaccount)
