ITT: Characters you ship and why.
I Rly dont know, it think its the outcast factor that i find so appealing.
Yaoi tainted me from an early age.
Agree there, Caramel is adorable!
I haven't seen any fanart of this yet, but for some reason I'd really like to.
I ship Twilight and Celestia really, really hard though I haven't really seen any pics or fic for it. The fact that the adorable master/apprentice and pseudo - mother/daughter relationship makes me want to ship them so bad probably makes me a bad person, anyway, but hey.
My favorites so far are
And Swayback Mountain did a really good job of Rarity/AJ, I don't know if anyone could do better.
I'm not a huge fan of the shipping stuff, but I enjoy Rainbow Dash and Applejack. For all their rivalry, they seem to have a lot in common.
They're both strong and competitive people whom I think could understand each other on a deeper level than other characters. They're both physical, determined, and competitive people. And yet are understanding enough that either, when not being rivals, would complement each other.
With Rarity I think they would find their differences to be overbearing. I don't think either Applejack or Rainbow Dash would connect as people. And Pinkie Pie really needs someone on a bit introverted and loyal to compliment her loud energy.
Twilight I think can pretty much match with anyone. As well Fluttershy, though I wouldn't pair her with Rarity.
TwilightxSpike (I have a fic in the works, it's basically a cuter CelxTwi; only Twilight is the 'teacher', plus interspecies romance is AWESOME)
Applejack/Fluttershy is now my OTP.
And I also find Rainbow Dash/Pinkie Pie to be a good pair. Though really I can see the merit in most if not all pairings, if done well.
>And Pinkie Pie really needs someone on a bit introverted and loyal to compliment her loud energy.
Twilight/Fluttershy. I ship it for the moe.
AJ/Rarity and Pinkie/Dash are also love.
I really like the Flutterdash shipping.
Especially ever since Sonic Rainboom. Their personalities contrast each other very much, and seem nice together. Also, they look cute together
Pinkie/Dash, specifically to spite the guy who wrote Cupcakes. Aside from that, Lyra and Bon Bon are the only couple I really like.
Rainbow Dash and Rarity. Ever since I saw the episode where Rarity stitched all their dresses, I just got the feeling MAYBE Rainbow Dash was so shy with how cool her outfit had to be because she had the TINIEST LITTLE crush on Rarity.
AJ/Rarity, ever since the UST in Look Before You Sleep.
Derpy and Fluttershy...
Favourite shipping for me is Dash/fluttershy. Its just so adorably contrasting.
Wait, they have male ponies?
Yuri goggles ACTIVATE
IF you see episode 5 with the googles on...
You haven't watched much, have you?
Haha, good one!
Need more male ponies so we can get some hetero shipping in here.
Way too sapphic.
I'm a fan of Trixie x Unaware Twilight. It's cute to think that Trixie can't get Twilight out of her mind for showing her up, then begins crushing on her for that same reason.
Rarity x AJ
Rarity x Fluttershy
Luna x Fluttershy (omg they're so cute ;__;)
I secretly like Celestia x Luna because I'm a sicko but I guess it was never a secret now.
one-sided Gilda x RD
also one-sided Trixie x Twilight
(Big Mac x Caramel IS an adorable idea, too :c)
>Sweetie Belle as the daughter of Lyra and Bon-Bon
But she's Rarity's sister. And Rarity seems about the same age as Lyra and Bon-Bon.
The chart was made before that episode was aired, but I don't think anyone bothered making an update where it was removed.
How can nobody be saying Pinkie PieXFluttershy? I mean, it's so there! Fluttershy was the only pony Pinkie Pie wouldn't prank in Griffin the Brush Off. She's so protective of her.
I guess that only showed Pinkie was more mindful than Dash... even the scene of "auntie Pinkie takes care of everything" didn't seem so intimate... but sure, why not. We don't really see a lot of fanart of the two together.
I approve of this wholeheartedly.
I really liked Fluttershy X Big Mac, it's a really sweet hetero ship.
I SHIP SCOOTALOO AND PROTOMAN.EXE
As much as I like the idea of AJ/Dash in some kind of athletic rivalry-tinged affair, I also really like the pun in this image. It's cute.
Heck, with the power of IMAAAGINATION both situations can be in my personal fanon. I don't have to choose!
Those skulls are in good company. Pinkie Pie will show em how to party hard and Fluttershy will probably shine them up and pull the dagger out of that one's head.
I'm now imagining Murray from Monkey Island interacting with various ponyfolk.
Coolest thing is, I can almost hear it in her voice and with her accent.
Personally i ship Rainbow Dash/Gilda, Rainbow Dash/Applejack and Twilight/Zecora. And also Rarity/Spike, but in an absolutely platonic way.
I don't really a ship them, per se, but after Sonic Rainboom, I want to see more Rainbow Dash/Rarity. I mean, when a hero saves a damsel, aren't they entitled to a little sugar from the distressed?
For the record, my official ships for those two are Dash/Pinkie and Rarity/Spike.
Also, Apple Bloom/Twist....COME ON! She was totally asking Twist out on a date for the cute-ceanera!
Appledash. All day, 'erry day.
>I mean, when a hero saves a damsel, aren't they entitled to a little sugar from the distressed?
Plausible, but it kind of got overshadowed by Dash riding off into the sunset to tap the Wonderbolts maple syrup factory.
I like dash because as a self-centered and somewhat predatory bisexual, she can easily be pointed in just about any direction you want, as long as she thinks she can get praise out of the deal or beat some proposed challenge.
The recent episode has had me liking Rarity x Fluttershy a lot more
I think this makes sense too even though I don't care for either character lol
I like this pairing too in a purely platonic way
Agreed. Ugly apart, adorable together.
We've been having too many irrelevant shipping threads. People seriously need to browse the back pages.
I ship PinkieDash.
Not as some romance-type ship (which I've seen many ships come) but a kind of platonic sismance.
I think I am one of three people who ship these two.
I find the idea of the silly and annoying dash trying to get a reaction out of the serious and discipline guard to be very cute.
Make that 4 people.
Not sure if you count me.
I'd ship Dash with either the Wonderbolts or those guards.
Dash x Everypony
What? There's something called "the herd".
Also, Luna x Derpy.
This is the best ponyship.
That's not PinkieDash.
Exactly why it's the best.
I love them all.
You clearly fail comprehenshion, anon.
The poster was saying that its only the best ship thats not PinkieDash, which implies that PinkieDash is the best ship wile Appledash is second best.
what? nobody's thought of LunaDash?[Princess Luna and Rainbow Dash.]
my OC is based on these two, after all.
i mean, think about it. Luna's adorable, and Dash is awesome. who wouldnt ship these two? ok...i admit. potentially-flawed logic due to lack of info on Luna's personality. i dun care, though.
...x.x idiotic computer made me quad-post. can someone delete 3 of those duplicates?
To delete a post, check the box next to your name, go to the bottom of the page and select "delete post."
anyway. so, yeah. LunaDash is the only pairing i really ship. btw, i made a thread asking for design help with an OC of mine in the works in /oc/, so...anyone reading this wanna help, it'd be much appreciated. btw, pony creator programs reek. x.x
Normally an equal opportunity shipper, but these days DashxSpitfirexSorin is pulling ahead.
Appledash is simply the best ship bar none. I love the competitive rivalry between them, and also how cute they are when you get past their self-displayed bravado.
I also like Fluttershy/Macintosh because they're both so quiet and understanding.
Pinkie Pie with nobody. I guess I just can't see her with anyone realistically. Dash/Pinkie makes me want to puke.
Twilight needs someone new to pair with, I can't find a good enough pair for her yet.
>Twilight needs someone new to pair with, I can't find a good enough pair for her yet.
It's called Pair the Spares. Twilight gets paired with Pinkie because there's nopony left.
You make me want to puke.
Let me guess, you dislike Pinkie Pie.
And just because you dislike a ship doesn't mean you have to use such words like that. I dislike Appledash and don't think it's the 'best' ship since the rivalry between them is more of a competitive rivalry, like one between two fighters, two boxers, two athletes (etc.) Sure, it looks affectionate when they get past before the bravado, but the fact that they're competitors will rear up whenever there's a competition. In short, the rivalry reminds me a lot of Ken and Ryu (which is friendly), or Kyo and Iori (which is antagonistic).
In contrast, I prefer PinkieDash since the episode that sparked the ship, Griffon the Brush-off, resonated well with me. I've been in situations similar to Pinkie's, where I am best friends with another person but he or she has another friend that dislikes me and is also a douche at times.
Also, I just find it cuter when it's two seemingly different people getting along because they share something in common. Applejack and Rainbow Dash are too alike, but Pinkie and Dash are friends despite they're differences.
And that's what friendship is about, learning to co-exist and like each other based on mutual understanding, co-operation and appreciation.
What I like about DashiePie is simply that Pinkie is so clingy onto Rainbow. The cutiemark episode amd especially the part about Pinkie's origin was showing that without the Dash, the party inside her would end.
I think there's a strong tie between the two characters that's more apparent than others.
That being said, that point is also reliant on how far Dash's sonic rainboom influenced the other ponies at their 'critical moment'. I think Applejack could've figured out on her own that she was meant to stay at Sweet Apple Acres, and Rarity could've have find out about her talent if the rock had broken through some other means, but the same might not be said about Twilight, since it was the rainboom that triggered the release of her true powers.
Because Caramel is SO BETA and Twilight is pretty much the equivalent of that.
Oh a Twiligh x Dash x Pinkie menage a trois?
TwilightxPinkie is the only one I can say I really support. Ever since Feeling Pinkie Keen, the possibilities seem endless, with Twilight's desire to study and find out how Pinkie, the most irrational character of the show, ticks, to Pinkie's almost-teasing of Twilight by just existing, playing games with her, and generally just having fun. It's like a genderflipped Pinkie and the Brain, I can't help but support it. Shame there are very few TxP pictures.
I THINK I'M THE ONLY ONE AND I HATE IT
The only char that slapped her ass though.
I support AppleDash to the very fullest. It's just the only couple that would actually work.. They have common interests, and their personalities support each other. Rainbow Dash is over-comfident and cocky. She needs Applejack, who's a calm and a down-to-earth personality, to protect her from doing something stupid. Plus, they're super cute! I mean, think about PinkieDash. I'm not a Pinkie hater, no. I actually love the character but.. She's just too unstable to be in a relationship. And considering her.. well, 'scene' in Part of One, she'd be suspecting RD to be cheating on her every time she want's to have time for herself. Also, you can see how Rainbow is sometimes just so fed up with her craziness and clinginess.
>>She needs Applejack, who's a calm and a down-to-earth personality, to protect her from doing something stupid.
I doubt this. In fact, I'd say Applejack's "down-to-earth" personality allows her to do some stupid things. Don't forget Applebuck season and Bridle Gossip. If anything, I'd say that Applejack's pragmatic nature would be at odds with Rainbow Dash's free-spirited nature.
>>Plus, they're super cute!
I dunno, they seem pretty rivalry to me lol
>>She's just too unstable to be in a relationship.
I.... "might" grant this. After all, and considering Fluttershy's rage at the gala, I'd say that mental breakdowns are a small deterrent.
>>And considering her.. well, 'scene' in Part of One, she'd be suspecting RD to be cheating on her every time she want's to have time for herself.
It's not so much cheating as it was being lied to.
>>Also, you can see how Rainbow is sometimes just so fed up with her craziness and clinginess.
Perhaps, but you have to hand it to Rainbow for being able to put up with Pinkie's BS at that point and drag her all the way to the barn. How many friends would do that ? From my own perspective, I had to deal with people who annoy me and put unnecessary demands. However, when some of thema re my best friends, I still help them for precisely that fact, even if they annoy me
These two. Have you looked at their eye colors?
Also Big Macintosh and Twilight Sparkle. It might be because Twilight seems like she talks a lot, uses too many words to say simple things, and with Big Mac I can picture her speechless.
Also if it turns out that he is illiterate/wants to learn more about things besides farm work she could teach him and that would be so romantic I might die.
at last, recognition (I just had to go look for it)
After seeing this, I suddenly find Twilight/Cheerilee quite appealing. I suppose it makes sense. Cheerilee is a teacher in FiM after all, and Twilight is the ultimate teacher's pet.
AppleDash. All day. Every day.
(Although ever since reading Swayback Mountain I've developed a soft spot for AJ/Rarity.)
Also, Twilight/Trixie remains a strong contender, even though it's possible we'll never even see Trixie again. (/sadface)
As for why there are so many f/f pairings... uh, 90% of the ponies are female, including ALL of the main characters. There wouldn't be enough males to go around even without a yuri shipping bias. <<
Add to that Big Macintosh getting shipped with Caramel Apple (who is a RELATIVE, by the way, just sayin), and the boys are disappearing even faster.
I still find RDxAJ the best ship evar. I guess it's the most "obvious" one, but it makes sense, it's funny, and it's also cute.
I like TwilightxSpike for some reason. In a platonic way I mean, since Spike's young, but still.
Also grown up Spike x Twilight or Rarity.
Caralight. That is all.
Dr Whooves and Captain Jack Harkness
Twilight has the intelligence. Pinkie Pie has the intuition.
Together they can rule the world.
Not really much of a ship in the romantic sense, but hey.
It's actually very amusing how popular the Twixie ship became. It started with a request for Trixie admiring Twilight like Helga does to Arnold, in a shrine. From there, it began to catch interest and expand.
Various artists and writers put their own spin on the ship premise. Sometimes, Trixie is in love with Twilight and yearns for her while Twilight is oblivious. Other times, Trixie's obsession with getting revenge leads to her infatuation with Twilight. And sometimes, they are bitter rivals, but reconcile now and then to spare time for lesbian fun.
Both Trixie and Twilight are pretty unicorns, have colors that meld together nicely, and interacted in comical ways that lead to shipping fuel. It's a very flexible pairing, I enjoy it.
I'd like to see, just once, Fluttershy/Gilda, though I think it may end up basically being rape. :T
Also, may I add, today is the day that I became a brony.
>though I think it may end up basically being rape
As in Flutterage violently raping Gilda, you mean?
I didn't even think of that. Hm, is it possible for two ponies to simultaneously rape each other?
I think this is the definition of hatesex
Definitely read that as "hatsex".
ditzyxmoondancer.. aka: "the couple not appearing in this film"
maybe I shouldn't listen to frank zappa while drinking a slushie after wlaking halfway across down for shits and giggles.. But: Derpypie.
>reads through the thread
>doesn't see any Twi x Dash
Am I alone on this ship?
I guess no one ships it since it's canon. As is Rarjack and DashiePie (Menage a trois with Twi, hurrr)
Superior flagship Pinkiedash because for fuck's shake SO MUCH "B.F.FOREEEVER" INNUENDO!
That feel when you were one of the first AppleDash shippers but then moved to AJ/Rarity. It's a weird feel. Dash is too mainstream now.
Also, Twilestia is the best pairing of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Before, TrixieXTwilight used to be shipping. Now it's just plain mainstream.
Twilight and Dash
Because they look cute together :V
Winnona and Trixie...Kill me...
All for the same reason: It's cute.
Well, this thread is super-old and I'm saging this post besides, so nopony will ever read this, but what the hay. I ship:
Twilight x Cheerilee (Go go gadget Romance Reports!)
Big Macintosh x Pinkie Pie (Big Pie.)
Rarity x Spike (crushshipping until he's older, then it's a cougarship)
Alternatively, Rarity x Pinkie Pie
Pinkie Pie x Pinkamena Diane Pie
Luna x Trixie x Prince Blueblood is my OT3.
Sweet Celestia that'd be one loud bedroom.
I've recently fallen for Twilight Sparkle x grown-up Apple Bloom, myself.
Dammit, someone make fanart of this!
my dick x everyone
there i said it
Hasbro revealed their ship
but...aren't they brother and sister...
In any case.
Celestia/Luna (princest is best cest)
Celestia/Discord (there had to be something between them)
Spike/Applebloom (is cute)
Derpy/Doctor Whooves (is cuter)
Dont really like ships is mane 6. Don't see their characters like that. to me, at most, they are just close friends(not that close) and will not make any steps towards romance.
>Husband big mac, and her daughters applebloom and granny smith
>her daughters applebloom and granny smith
Yeah, the incest angle was weird enough but once you bring in the time travel I'm out.
Beaks are my fetish.
