Well this is my blog, this is where I would do it lol
Again, it’s not like I’m going on your blog and bashing you for your ships. You can like what you like, I just might not agree that it’s a good ship and probably never will despite any reasonings/evidence you give me, because I’ll counter it with show examples.
Again, I’m talking purely about the CANON SHOW as far as shipping goes. AppleDash in the SHOW doesn’t work. In your blog, sure why not, it’s an AU where things are different so it doesn’t matter.
Trust me on this one: Dating your clone doesn’t work out as wonderfully as you might think. Been there, done that, ended up with me nearly abandoned in a state with no friends or family =w=
And while I don’t really see RariDash personally, your reasoning’s definitely make some sense and I can easily see why you ship it. I think it’d be one of those ships where if they were dating, Dash would want it to be a secret because she’d be too embarrassed about revealing how much she likes her girly side and being called out/made fun of for it.
I mean, Rarity’s level of fashion and girlishness is different from say, the dress she wore to the Gala for a formal event. Doing that on a regular-basis isn’t something I really see Dash doing, and the one time we DID see her helping Rarity with dress making, she bored out of her mind lol
But it’d make for a neat moral lesson where Dash realizes she can indulge on it on a regular basis, as opposed to only during formal events etc.
I mean, thank you for the technical knowledge, but regardless of what her condition is called, it’s still the main factor that makes her difficult to ship with because of that need to have everything organized, listed, and re-checked like 3-4 times.
boulderthedragon said:*whispers* DaringDassshhhhh
Oh okay, I’ll put DaringDash on like… #5 or something, under LyraBon xD
Pshaw, I totes prefer RumbLoo. I love Bloom, but I don’t think Rumble is the guy for her!
Besides, Rumble is kind of a wimpy athletic boy that’s perfect for Scoots. Applebloom needs a REAL stallion, one that she can take for a ride and teach the ways of working on the farm, while being treated like the Princess she rightfully deserves to be treated like!
Okay maybe that’s not true lol, Applebloom is just my favorite pony.
I had that with FlutterDash when I first started thinking about “If I shipped ponies in the show” and they struck out at me.
Then I started wondering why my gut said those two, and I started thinking about and going in depth about their show personalities and how they treated each other, and continued to treat each other, etc, etc
And maybe RumbLoo too. All other ships though were from careful analysis and thought.
I ship TwiMac. Maybe not as hard as I do FlutterDash, but I’d say it’s like my #2 ship in the fandom.
Primarily with Big Mac being the quiet, understanding, strong type, which is a good match for Twilight’s quiet, hectic nature. Twilight is tricky to pair up with people because she has really strong OCD tendencies that, for a normal person, could easily get on their nerves if they weren’t patient and understanding with her. But Big Mac is a man who already easily fits those traits for the pairing.
Twilight would be the kind of girl who would make a giant list of things to do on a date and would want to follow those things in order to make sure it was a ‘perfect date’, and Big Mac would be understanding enough to be able to follow through with her list. Or, on the other side, he could also show her that not everything can go according to a list you make, and show her that romance isn’t something you really control but let happen.
It’d be a really cute romantic story in my mind, and after the whole Flash Sentry crush thing, I can easily see Twilight finding Big Mac attractive now that she’s noticing boys and would maybe want to try something, but would be too awkward to say anything at first, but that one thing could eventually lead to another.
I like TwiMac, it’s a cute ship that easily makes sense in my head and I love seeing it.
RumbeLoo is a great ship, yes. They are adorable together and I give all my approvals o3o
Rumble also doesn’t really have much of a canon personality, only inferred to/implied personality traits.
For instance, he has an athletic brother that Rainbow Dash knows, He can fly despite appearing so young, and he knows if his brother is sick or not.
From there you can pretty much ascertain your own personality for him, and based on that I like them as a couple. They’re simple, they match well, and if people ship ThunderDash, it gives a nice comparison to RumbleLoo o3o
I probably would’ve just countered all of your arguments anyway, as so far nothing anyone has said has been satisfactory for proving to me that FlutterDash is impossible. Just people making assumptions about characters based on their own beliefs of what the character would act like (probably from past experiences with people like that), rather than evidence from the SHOW itself.
Sorry Factory, but you’ve yet to give anything other than “I don’t think it works” as an argument for why it wouldn’t. And that’s just not satisfactory here.
Probably because they see it as me calling out their ship and making fun of them for liking it or something. And when they do that they need to call out my ship because they don’t see any of my points as being valid because obviously it would never happen in their head so clearly it’d never happen at all ever, despite any and all evidence of the contrary.
This is why I only post my opinions about it on my blog though. This is my blog where my opinions go, and I don’t harass other people for their opinions on ships on their blog. I leave other people alone with their ships, even if I don’t like them or don’t agree with them.
I just wish people would give me solid reasons other than “Oh well I just can’t see it”, and then me disputing and debunking any other points they have with evidence and reasoning from the show, but them just being like “I don’t care about your arguments! I will believe what I want to believe and your dumb!” as if that somehow makes them the victor.
