@Starswirl hey artist here, have you heard of an AU? I actually like Twilight Velvet and Night Light together, but I can have fun and make my nextgen more interesting. Does it hurt you or any other one? I don't think so.

Besides I changed my ng a little bit anyways, to make things simpler.

Who is Silver Stream? The hippogriffs are called Novo and Skystar. The only other characters with beaks are Gilda and (technically, although I'm including her purely for the snout shape) Ember.

Well, there isn't exactly a canon gay ship in the franchise, except kinda Bon Bon x Lyra…but yeah that one I saw split up, to ship them with guys, if not on a family tree (although these are 83 on derpibooru, which I think includes all or allmost all from devianart.)

And for example in this pic's and artists universe:

Twilight and Sunset were a couple, but Sunset cheated on Twilight, and Twilight ended up with Comet Tail, while Sunset Shimer ended up with Flash. (the artist deleted their pics on their DA account, but this was the case, and I refernced it WAAY ago in the comments:

Also, on a less debate about the senseless Flash-hate, if one reads the picture's description by the author on deviantart, Twilight and Sunset were romantically involved in the past, until Sunset broke Twilight's heart :(
Does that mean we should include the "implied sunsetsparkle" tag? As the tension depicted in the picture, is a result of a failed relationship between Sunset and Twilight…

The artist also made a family tree , while Sunset's and Twilight's relationship isn't on it (as they didn't have kids together), it is mentioned in the description, which resues the story of Sunset and Twilight breaking up, although with Star Swil the second (XD), in place of Comet Tail : "Princess Twilight Sparkle and Prince Comet TailParents of Faust and Starswirl IIAunt and Uncle of Skylark, Flurry Heart, and Pinstripe.Reside in Twilight’s glittery castle.They were in a poly relationship with Sunset Shimmer but it ended when Twilight fell pregnant with Starswirl. They remain tense friends"

Added bonus points that in the versions of Sunset's and Twilight's break up by the artist, they are either on bad terms, or not exactly good ones…

In turn, Night Light and Twilight Velvet are explicedly on good terms after the divorce on this family…

So with that, yes I did come of across having a gay ship broken up for a straight one on a chart…

I also saw other gay characters shiped all the time with people of opposte gender, in fan and official works. Carmilla is a heavily hinted, practically told as the times were when the story was written, to be lesbian, yet she is turned Heterosexual or shipped with guys, including in official works.

I mean, in Castlevania, Carmilla is shown to have succeded in turning Laura, and they are now a battle couple, as seen in Rondo of Blood, but in both Castlevania: Judgment and Lords of Shadow, she has hots for racula, and Laura isn't mentioned at al (Judgement), or is reimagined as Carmilla's daughter (Lords of Shadow).

Other fanworks that do it, include splitting up Uranus/Haruka or Neptune/Michiru from Sailor Moon, and shipping them with guys (which) happens, or (much more often) how I Soi Fon/Suì-Fēng from Bleach, shipped with guys, and her romantic love towards Yoruichi is completelly written of. Or shipping Kaworu from Neon Genesis Evangelion with girls (most often Rei).
Or how in many fics, Echidna, Elina and Irma from Queens Blade, despite being lesbians in the show, are shipped with guys more often in fics. Yes, I watched Queen's Blade XD

(Also, Echidna, and Irma are visibly inspired by Yoruichi and Soi Fon, although Echidna is visibly lesbian while that wasn't told about Yoruichi…Irma though is pretty much Soi Fon)

Most, or I think even all adaptation if the Iliad, even most modern, also leave out the fact the greatest love of Achilles life, was Patroclus, a guy, and Achilles went completelly berserk after his death (well, that they kep, but change the feeling from romantic).

It's also left out in allmost all adapatations of Mesopotamian mythos/or Epic of Gilgamesh, that Gilgamesh, the first recorded hero, was also the lover of his friend, Enkidu…

I'm not trying to complain, mind. I just… don't quite understand, if that makes sense. Something like Twilight Velvet and Night Light having a divorce so she could end up with Celestia. As well this is a tendency that only seems to move in one direction; I don't remember any chart having a gay ship broken up for a straight one. Did you ever come across one?

To be fair, I don't see why this is an issue…I mean it's not even a crack pairing, as Spike and Thorax are close friends, and it isn't at all that different from Fluttershy x Discord — who are also close friends (it's somewhst rare in fiction as some already noted, when a guy and girl are close fiends, and no a couple. ) in canon.

Well, Maud still is a pony, and there is a sizable, like large amount of (justified at least from Spike's side) shipping pics and fics of Rarity and Spike, and Spike isn't a pony…he isn't even in the same taxonomic class as them. An I don't see people then complaining…Nor with Discord x Celestia (even when it was a complete crack pairing).

Well, that or he would be killed of (This happened to Mirror Sombra here though, although seeing his "predicament", it's kinda justified, especially that in comics, normal Sombra got resurrected, and the opposite of that is…).

To be fair though, I don't think Cadance divorcing THAT often Shinning Armor for a lesbian ship is that often — seeing there are on derpibooru just 134 Cadance x Chrysalis pics and 174 Cadance x Twilight pictures (and part of those are porn fics, and others are threesomes with Shinning Armor), 5 years after her first apperance, and yet those are the most popular lesbian ships she has.

I also saw Cadance leave Shinning Armor for another guy, like Big Mac , and Shining Armor leaving Cadance for another guy, and then that was used to justify shipping Cadance with someone else, including lesbian ships (warning a bit strange fic) .
