Although it's all fanon discussion, so it really doesn't have any real bearing on what the creators were thinking. But, I think the image is a worthy one. If we're looking at cartoon personalities: G1 Surprise is all kinds of LOL SO RANDUM and loves surprises (duh), pranks, and all kinds of having fun-- much like Pinkie Pie, whose symbol is also balloons. Design wise, not very related, although the poofy hair is similar in Faust's character design, so she must have seen some parallels there. (Or just liked poofy hair, who knows.) G1 Posey's cartoon personality was basically tied up in her garden, and keeping it nurtured. She's shown to even take care of villainous flowers without assuming that they could be evil, so she's got Fluttershy's unassuming personality, and the whole "you have to see the good in everyone, even monsters" thing too. And although Fluttershy's design does seem to be a little more similar to Sky Skimmer's, neither pony is a pegasus, which could very well disprove both theories entirely. G1 Firefly (I'm reffing Firefly's Adventure mostly here) was all about her aerial calisthenics, always talking about what new dangerous trick she could try. (I wonder if Fluttershy will be the Medley to Dash's Firefly?) She was a very brave pony,, but particularly headstrong and a bit overconfident. Flying up to fight a dragon, anyone? Anyway, the point I'm making is, I think it's a little unfair to call it a stupid image, because it makes a lot of valid points.
