That might have been the closest we've ever been to someone in the cast leapfrogging Psychoshy's necrophilia, a potential relationship with the corpse of a corpse, and suggested by a member of the editing team, no less!

Well, that's enough Cloudsville for me tonight guys. Good luck and goodnight. Don't have a Goldenblood or some other controversial character discussion without me!

Something about Lacunae (an entity that no longer exists) having had the potential to become romantically involved with Steelhooves (who is no longer alive).
But I was speaking in past tense in the first place and given Steelhooves was very alive throughout Lacunae's existence, I don't see the scandal. Other than the fact that none of that actually happened because I didn't mean to say Steelhooves to begin with, but was referencing Lacunae's previously potential relationship with Stronghooves and got the latter's name confused.
Which was all a minor point in my argument as to why I don't find Glory interesting.

Well, I was also kind of thinking of Psalm, since there's the degree of continuity between her and Lacunae and she certainly has the potential for a relationship with Stronghoof. And she did have a (non-romantic) relationship with Steelhooves, before he was Steelhooves.
Well, that and sometimes you're given an opportunity you just can't pass up.

Unrelated, but I have no idea how a story about "foalcon" can be featured on the front of FiMFiction, but Broken Accords can't. That's pretty fucked up.

People like their porn, and many clop writers have a whole lot of followers—and I speculate "higher quality" followers than Somber, in terms of conversion into reads and upvotes, as a large chunk of his came from "Simply Rarity," which doesn't have much in common with Broken Accords, and I wouldn't be surprised if many are more interested in PH-related things than picking up something new, whereas theirs are following to get more porn. Add to that that the Feature Box only cares about upvotes, so downvotes, whether automatic, content-based ones or those from people who read and disliked the clop story or thought its mechanics were poor, don't work to keep it out. Oh, and it's also possible that the fairly grisly corpse in the first chapter could have left some readers on a sour note for a Teen-rated story marked Dark but not Gore.

Oh, and swicked, you tell me that can't happen, for little reasons like it doesn't make much sense, it's woefully out of character, and Lacunae never existed at a time when Steelhooves was dead; I say you aren't shipping hard enough. Beyond the fact that the first two don't even matter to someone with an advanced form of the shipping disease, with time travel quite possibly existing because Kkat wanted a Dr. Hooves reference and so had Jokeblue imply she met him, a headcanon for why Lacunae's memories wouldn't disperse in a visit to the future, and (optionally) memory removal magic, it could already have happened. Not that I think it did, in this case.

Well, given that shipping seems to often involve the same skill set as paranoid conspiracy theorizing, that's probably a good thing.

Man, if I couldn't laugh at myself about it . . .
Well, at least I'm pretty sure all the ships I've considered were at least between characters from the same source material, and who had met each other.

I don't know, does P-21 have some kind of earth pony sorcery Lancer could be affected by?  Spike

I seriously do think, though, that it is in part and for some people very like a transmissible mental or mood disorder, a meme writ large and harder to kill. Or, if not transmitted, then one that tends to manifest the underlying tendency only around others with it, even if you didn't know you had it before.

So, for the shippers out there: when did you start/your first ship? For a while I thought that I only started after getting into Pony, but then I remembered way back I used to ship Artemis/Holly from Artemis Fowl. I think my first in PH was Gloryjack, and I was blinded to the elements of P-21/Jack by taking his "I am all of the gay" protestations too seriously for too long. Outside ships that really happened . . . I guess Lachoof?

If we count TV shows? Number 3 and Number 4 from Codename Kids Next Door. I used to love that show...

As for just books? Probably Aria and Eragon from the Inheritance Cycle.

Not that I thought of it as shipping at the time, nor do I engage in shipping now. I agree with swicked in that it gets too weird or too serious.

And it means she valued the place where someone presumably long dead (or was that post Fluttertree discovery, not that it makes a difference?) more than not only her own safety, but the invasion of her old home and wholesale slaughter of its inhabitants, slavery and all that comes with it, and everything else they saw, including gaining ponies' trust and then slaughtering them for food. About the only way it could have been more of an unjustified, unprincipled, utterly self-centered turnabout would be if she snapped and murdered the staff of the spa in Tenpony because one of them chipped her hoof.
Well, I'll defend Velvet so far as to note that she didn't have much chance to take part in Arbu because Pip was already cornering the market on flaming house-to-house murder. (I think she actually registered a few microhitlers, there.)

Yeah, same here. My best guess for the first time I actively thought, "I hope X and Y get together" when one of them wasn't a designated love interest is probably Harry Potter.

Shipping huh.. Well my first otp was Naruto and Hinata from Naruto.
In PH tho I have always been shipping P-21/Jack never really cared for gloryjack tbh. Glorybra seems really sweet so rooting for them. But in general I'm a sucker for "best friends turned lovers" kind of ships.

The only ship I ever remember thinking was interesting was Murky and Ragini from Murky Number Seven. I really liked the dynamic between them and there was even an instance in which Ragini flirted with Murky.
I got sick of the fic and stopped reading a while ago. I know Ragini dies at some point, though. Whatever.

This so fucking much. I swear it's a side effect of being borderline gay. But for some reason I just get the most feelings from Best Friends then lovers. It's just the cutest thing ever.

Also one question for somber that has been burning in my mind recently what was or is there a city the hoof and it's design are inspired by? I can see some parallels with some cities but I'd like to know if you had any.

This.

I've been shipping for forever. Maybe it's just that I'm a crazed romantic at heart, but I almost always consciously and unconsciously ship characters whenever I encounter a new work of fiction.

Heresy.

Part of the shipping paradigm for me is also that I tend to enjoy and seek out works with relatively heavy shipping (I'm looking at you, Madoka), leading to an endless cycle of shiptease and very liberal interpretation of canon.

Wait, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Artemis a boy genius twelve-year-old, and Holly an elven young adult (and so, like, WAY older than a human of a comparable age group)?
Tell me you at least aged them up.

Hence why Ash never gets laid...


As for PH ships...
