There are two factors, IMO, that lead to the "little chance of any pairing being canon":
1. The show, especially early on when the fandom was forming, never centered romance as a positive goal. In fact, Rarity's implied stallion-chasing and the love poison episode both clearly showed that chasing romance is a waste.
2. Possibly more important, there was never a clear closest pair between the M6, so you'd be forced to either make something up or go for the M6 omniship. IIRC, Dash & Shy were the only ponies that had a pre-existing connection prior to S1E01. Twipie was never the implied canon ship, so there was never an overbalance of Twipie art nor Twijack proponents going on rages of copium over it.

I used to hate the Lyrabon ship specifically because it was spammed so often. It was obnoxious and stupid (like Lyra's hand obsession). Over the years, I've come to appreciate Lyrabon as the story of two long-term roommares who slowly fell in love with one another as they realized that they were the only pony who would always be there to return to. It's pure HC at this point, but it's a better love story than any of the canonized love at first sight stories. After dates with stallions (or other mares) went poorly, Bon-Bon could return home and commiserate with Lyra. Lyra might move out for a year for work but eventually return to live with Bon once again. Eventually, they realized that they had been in a de facto loving lesbian relationship for half a decade and made it official with a wedding.

Your thoughts on Octiscratch line up with mine. It's not an interesting ship. Good stories and art can be made of it, but the ship itself isn't part of my HC. If anything, my HC is that Octavia is straight but presents herself to the world as ace while Vinyl is mostly ace. Again, that's all unfounded HC. Who wouldn't want a story of two strictly platonic roommares who live together due to the realities of being a pair of musicians on opposite schedules?

Here’s a different flavor of cringe: uploaders who don’t properly tag their anthro. Doubly so if it’s also SFM. I don’t think any less of you for enjoying it; I do think less of you for putting it in my watch list.

This fandom seems to assume that if two mares have a close relationship then it MUST be sexual.

Yeah, I hate that too.

Vinyl probably plays late into the night since she does club music.
Maybe Tavi has a couple of evening concerts, but probably has daytime practice & rehearsals.

Proposed sleep schedule for Vinyl: 3am-11am
Proposed sleep schedule for Octavia: 10pm-7am

And because it sounds similar to me;
Supposed sleep schedule for Princess Luna: 4am-1pm
Supposed sleep schedule for Princess Celestia: 8pm-5am

Reminds me of John Hinkley Jr and Jodie Foster… except he didn't actually manage to kill anyone, did he? Hope Ashleigh doesn't take it too hard… and Hasbro doesn't decide to retire AJ.

Worth noting is that the comment section of that post got locked. I'm unsure if there were any specific comments that caused it to be locked, but I did see some that I found pretty cringy, especially the doomsaying ones saying "THIS IS THE END OF THE FANDOM, GUYZ!" Need I remind this is the same fandom that had to deal with one of our most popular members (ToonKriticY2K) being a pedophile? If we can survive that, we can survive this. Not to mention, the shooter being a brony is a really minor and insignificant thing that had nothing to do with the shooting itself.

I am not seeing too much of a mention in the media mentioning it, so far. We shall see. Generally when things "don't fit" into a pre-established narrative on one side or the other most media will just leave it alone but the ingredients are there for some controversy considering last year.

We shall see.

As far as I know, none of the Mane Six are going to be featured in G5, so Applejack was already on her way out. This is just a rehash of the "they're gonna kill Applejack!" drama from two years ago.


@Background Pony #1928
I don't remember the ToonKritic drama ever reaching outside of the fandom. People outside the fandom generally dismiss anything brony-related, including fandom drama, because they don't really care. Just like the other incident I mentioned, this will probably blow over in a week or two.
