my problem with this ship is how it's presented in slice of life, as such obvious queer baiting that it's too difficult to watch.
the way they look at each other, how they touch, how they talk with one another, is definitely supposed to imply something there as some sort of crude nudge at the fans.... but the fact they make a point to continually say "best friends, we're just friends, a friend like you, etc...etc..." is actually pretty disgusting. it's dangling it right in our faces but then backing away and saying "HYUCK, just kidding, no homo, we can't show lesbians on this show!"
trust me, i would love a canon same-sex couple in mlp regardless of who the chars actually are, but if they're going to use it to queer bait people like that i'm not interested. the ship itself without the show's implications though, isn't anything, because they have no personalities to begin with. Even after slice of life their personalities were so bland you can't even define them.
