Crack Shippings Taken Seriously

Careless Whisper

Regarding the sudden emergence and the rapid rise & fall of the Embrax tag this weekend…
I can understand why people made it, and the supposed shipping fuel from that one scene in triple threat, but I don't think it's gonna go anywhere. Of course if it were up to me I would've had that scene come to an end with dialogue that goes something like this…

Thorax: By the way Ember, the next time you see spike, probably somewhere in private, try telling him how you feel.

Ember: What?! I… I don't know what you're talking about!

Thorax: Ember, Changelings like me can derive nourishment from love itself, so I know it when I see it. You couldn't have made it more obvious to me if you tried.

Ok so I've been debating two ships for the last day or so and I'm no closer to deciding which one I want to go with. Both involve spike. Spike/Gilda vs Spike/Gabby.

I have two options.

Option 1: Gilda. Ignore the age gap and try not to sweat bullets as I try to avoid looking like a pedophile. Granted I'm just heavily ASSUMING the idea that Gabby is younger than Gilda, far as I know this isn't true but I don't think it can be proven or disproven.

Option 2: Gabby. Try to make Gabby interesting through headcanon…I can do this but I have to get off my lazy butt to make it happen. Gabby is the Spongebob of Griffonstone but there isn't much else to her besides that. I think Gilda is a much better realized character than Gabby.

Spike and Cadance are (presumably) going to outlive Rarity and Shining Armor, and Cadance seems just as fond of Spike as the rest of the Crystal Empire does, so…


I dunno. It's a thought.

Both those statesman are false. Flash (Human version) is made of multiple tropes that usually apply to boyfriends in fiction, while his pony counterpart has a much personality as any other background character. Starlight had questionable execution, but has developed to a point where she does well as a main focus without drawing onto her past mistakes, and is quite a different character from Sunset, the EQG character that people claimed she was a rip-off of once she was reformed.

She is our Queen
@Meanlucario
Flash is always considerate and never pushy. Starlight Glimmer was a cultist and continues to be pushy and forceful against others. She imposes her will on others more than once even after being reformed. Besides, she is also rude and has a bad attitude. Flash is positive (we ignore Rainbow Rocks behavior because that was magic induced) and kind. The two personalities simply don't mesh.

1 doesn't make for a good or interesting character, and 2 has a slow, gradual process of reformation. Not everyone can be Sunset and just do a 180 at a drop of a hat.
