Top 10 MLP Ships

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 10, 2016, 9:47 AM
:icontransparentplz:


I've wanted to make a list of all the pairings I ship, but that would be WAY too long, so I've decided on doing a top 10 with my reasons why.

10.
Starlight Glimmer x Sunburst

After watching the S6 premiere, I felt that these two had obvious chemistry immediately. Right from the start they were bound to make up, because these are ponies after all and everyone gets a resolution. But I didn't expect them to have so much in common, even though they're on different ends of the "ashamed of my past" spectrum. 





9.
Pinkie Pie x Cheese Sandwich
Pinkie 'and anniversary' S4E12 by adgerellipone

Do I even need to go into it? There's not much to say here. CheesePie is one of the few ships where I don't really ship either pony with anyone else. (No CheeseMaud or PartyPie shipping for me, sorry). They most likely have a lot of the same morals and values, which is important in a relationship, and they're a good match for each other when it comes to partying. Could you imagine any other pony trying to keep up with Pinkie's constant party planning and never, ever grow tired of it? 




8.
Apple Bloom x Tender Taps

I generally go back and forth between this and SweetieTaps, but AppleTaps takes the cake for me. I just loved their dynamic in the episode, and I have a pretty good hunch they stayed friends. I can imagine them working together on plays or something in the future, Apple Bloom behind the stage building sets while Tender Taps dances away.




7.
Discord x Fluttershy

OKAY. If there's one pony I can't seem to NOT ship Discord with, it's Fluttershy. I try so hard not so ship them but I just have to! Discord obviously cares a very deep amount about Fluttershy, and quite frankly I don't think he'd even ever consider falling for anypony else. Whether or not Fluttershy would return those feelings is up to you of course, sometimes I feel she would and other times I feel she might not. Discord still has a lot to learn I think, but if he follows her guidance and truly becomes genuine at heart, I think it's possible.




6.
Diamond Tiara x Snails

(SORRY HOMI I COULDN'T FIND A GOOD SCREENSHOT OF THEM)

I honestly have no idea WHY I ship it. But I love the idea of mean high school girl falling for big class dork. Especially after Tiara reformed, I imagine she'd definitely broaden her mind with what ponies she hangs out with and lets into her life. Snails probably won't be the first pony, but I don't think he'd be the last either. After getting to know each other it's possible to discover they have more in common on the inside, rather than just judging by their outer appearance and demeanor.




5.
Princess Celestia x Mirror!King Sombra
Comic issue 18 Sombra and Celestia by adgerellipone

//insert sappy description here//




4.
Fluttershy x Rainbow Dash
Rainbow Dash 'all part of the game' S03E12 by adgerellipone

One of my top OTP's. FlutterDash is a ship I've held onto for so many years, and I'll never let it go. While I know it would never happen because FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC it's still stuck in my heart! They obviously have a long history of growing up together, and if there's one thing I'm a sucker for it's childhood friends falling in love. They already know what the other wants and values in life, and there wouldn't be that awkward "do I really know you" phase. On top of that Rainbow is already welcome in her family, and I could only imagine the look on Zephyr's face when the two of them make it official.




3.
Applejack x Rarity
Maxresdefault-1 by adgerellipone

Not sure if I ship this more or less than the next one, so let's call it a tie for now. Rarijack has been one of my longest lasting ships in MLP. Sure, they're opposite enough that the "opposites attract" argument probably wouldn't work, but on top of that they're still best friends, despite living their lives so vastly different from each other. Even so, they do spend time together in ways they can both enjoy, such as their spa visits (SO HAPPY when I found out that was a thing, by the way). 




2.
Fluttershy x Big Macintosh
Screen Shot 2016-10-10 at 12.10.16 PM by adgerellipone

Hoo boy. I was introduced to this before I even LIKED the show, let alone watched it. Because of that, it was always on my mind. At first I didn't understand why people shipped them so dang much. I still don't understand, but there are so many headcanons one can make, so why not? They're adorable, and if I didn't care so much for my Cheerimac family I'd scrap it in a heartbeat to put these two back together in AiM. Unfortunately my shipping heart suffers because of my storytelling, haha.




1.
Sunset Shimmer x Twilight Sparkle
Tumblr Oe2mpi5krj1rl6mglo9 1280 by adgerellipone

[Legend of Everfree spoilers below]

HOO DANG I BET YOU WEREN'T EXPECTING THIS. I am complete and utter TwiSet trash. If there's one ship I demand be canon. It's this one. However, I'm not talking about the pony princess twilight, but SciTwi specifically. For a little bit, I'll admit I did ship TwiSet loosely before Friendship Games aired, but then everything changed for me. It's possible Sunset did have the hots for Pony twilight initially, then this little bugger came along and made it all worse. 

They have too much in common, starting with the raging she-demon thing, and ending with the fact that, they technically both come from their own dimension's version of Canterlot. They could probably spend hours talking about the similarities and differences between their respective homes.

Also can we talk about how during the entirety of Legend of Everfree, Sunset put Twilight before herself? She lied to everyone else multiple times to keep Twilight happy, even though she wanted more than anything to talk about the magical occurrences and figure out what the heck was going on. But because Twilight was uncomfortable, she held her tongue until the last minute when their lives were all at risk.

Sunset did nothing but open her heart to Twilight, starting with Midnight Sparkle. Sunset immediately showed empathy towards Twilight and helped her overcome her internal conflicts, and did nothing but make sure she felt comfortable at CHS when she transferred. 

"But Liiiiiiittttleeee! Sunset was happy for Twilight and Timber!"

OF COURSE SHE WAS. She had to be! Twilight was the utmost important person in her life [at least at the time]. Wouldn't you think she wants to spare Twilight of her feelings? During the entire movie, Twilight was dealing with an insane amount of anxiety and self-consciousness, and Timber gave her time away from that. Sunset confessing to her would have probably tipped her over the edge. Sunset put Twilight's feelings over her own time and time again.

Okay, I'm done rambling on about Sunset Shimmer. Let me know your thoughts, and feel free to make a journal like this too!! If you do, please tag me so I can see it ;D I love hearing other peoples' opinions (as long as they're given in a friendly way!)

I ship Snails and Diamond too but for different reasons. I like the idea of Diamond growing up to be similar to her mother (in temperament) but being soothed by her chill as f*** husband. Like she'd burst into the house, fuming from a stressful day of work and before she can even begin to rant, Snails floats her a cup of tea and just says 'let it out, sweetie.'

oh yessss I will !!! XDDDD

And I know how you feel, I had Twilight as Single in my NG with an adopted daughter, but WELP NOPE HERE COMES SUNSET back from the alternate world! And you're right, I think I would keep SciTwi with Timber in the human universe, and then have Sunset come back to Equestria. (I mean there's another version of her in the Equestria girls universe too I'm assuming, and now that SciTwi can complete the mane 6 at Canterlot High, there's really no need for Sunset to be there anymore.)

HAHAHA GOOD.

I've actually figured out a way I can include both Twiset AND TimberTwi, it would extend from the story I started writing about Phoenix ;D maybe it'll be a 3-4 chapter story detailing what happens

but basically: everyone fucks up -shot-

its hard cuz I'm actually not a shipper of Sunset & pony Twilight, just SciTwi specifically haha

That's the one. But I think that guy was just trying to mess with people. I just went through every scenes in that eps again and I don't see any different.

Hahahaha yeah I just went through t too to be sure, didn't see anything. It's still an interesting theory though, especially considering I feel like I should BEEN hinted fluttershy is a bit older than the other 6.

Only 1 year older than PP. But I don't think the staffs would ever hint those things. Like Cadence case, that toy just popped out of nowhere without any info other than almost driving PP crazy. The MLP staffs aren't Oda. (You will get my last sentence if you read One Piece)
