My only thought here is, how can all the same sex couples have offspring? The one involving Chrysalis can be handwaved away with "shapeshifting" but the rest aren’t as easily explained. Unless someone used a gender bending potion or spell that bends genders or they somehow got Discord to make it possible for a short time I’m not seeing it. Even with all of those possible explanations I’m still at a loss as to who would use which method.

Ah scootaloo is the only one with a green line going down, but I was treating it as a purple one like most. I also think this is a good place for this kind of thing, but I still stand by it that complaining about downvotes whilst giving people so many valid reasons to downvote this is just silly. Besides, people don’t get bullied off this site, they leave.
Anyway I hope you stick around and don’t take your headcanon too seriously. Like comments about bad ships being subjective is really redundant. We’re talking about someone’s opnion of a headcanon. Of course it’s subjective. But you’ve invited these opinions by showing everyone else what your opinions are, don’t forget that.

Also I love these family tree things. But sadly people never include grandparents… No love for the older generation.

And that’s fair, and I do have ship pictures. This chart is more for organization.

@Minus
I’m not sure how you got that. The ledger shows it’s an adoptive relationship, making scootaloo siblings with RD’s kids, but I’ll look at that to make it more clear.

But I post these things here too because 1. This site is an image hub, making it useful to post my images here for people to find under certain topics. And 2. I do have people that follow my art through those site specifically.

I’m not asking for special treatment. That would be asking for people to not downvote because my name is attached, but I’ve seen a few people badgered off this site because of people kind of nasty just because they didn’t like a ship. That’s silly.

Different people like different things. None of these are ethically wrong.

@BadgingBadger
[bq]Doesn’t help you have some terrible ships in there too though.

"Bad ship" is an entirely subjective notion. Does not warrant a downvote-instead-of-hide by itself.
Plus, the artist’s focus is the offspring, not the couple.

Thank you, point well made~

ships are perfectly fine, I love ships. just going "muhhh chart and muhhh next gen OC’s!" isn’t as high-quality as a nice romantic ship picture.

Though i feel like posting it here can be useful if the character icons have names.
One can look at them, get curious, and browse the character tags to see the reference chart.

people who downvote this are not bad or wrong.

You forgot a "necessarily" there. I am sure that some people will downvote this just because they dislike a specific crack ship.

Wait if I read this right, Rainbowdash adopted Scootaloo but also had a child with her?

@FarewellDecency
@BadgingBadger
A downvote for not understanding it is totally justified. You can’t post something to a public place like this and then say "This is only for a small group, everyone else should ignore it." If that’s really the case, don’t post it here. Keep it to Deviantart or Tumblr. But so long as you do put things on this site, this site will judge it. You dont get special treatment, and people who downvote this are not bad or wrong.

It’s just a reference chart for the artist’s OC’s, and i don’t see anything inherently wrong with it, other than the notion that it provokes people’s rather irrational hatred for random ships and crack ships, which is this artist’s focus.
Sure, putting names in would be a good idea. But that’s about it.

Dude, I did, but there’s a character limit. I didn’t want to omit so it’s in the source.
That’s still not a reason for downvoting. It’s a reason to find no interest, which is understandable.

This is for people who are keeping up with what I’m doing and who find interest in the next gen topic. Downvoting an image just because you don’t get it seems kind of silly. Why say you flat dislike something you don’t understand rather than just ignore it? It just discourages artists from producing content that some people obviously enjoy and hurts no one.

That’s not it at all. It’s that charts like this are useless without external data sources, and unnecessary if those sources are available. Take Lyrabon, a ship I wholeheartedly support. This chart tells me you ship them (like just about everyone else); and that there are a couple of magical lesbian offspring from that ship. I have no problems with that. It also shows me their color schemes. But that’s it. That’s all it tells me, it’s almost nothing, and I do have a problem with that. Is the pink one with a green mane Melon? Melrose? Sundance? Wayfinder? Is the green one with a pink mane Melon? Cupido de Tenero Amore? Cool Current? And who’s the couple on the far right, even? I can’t tell from those little pictograms.

Who the Tartarus can tell anything useful from this? Unless they already knew it.

Yet if I go to the source the text gives me 99% of the information except their colors. Three more words per character ("body/mane/eyes") and the text would give everything that’s in the picture, and everything else that’s not in the picture. The picture has no point. It is practically the worst possible way to display this information. And yet it could be good. That’s what I don’t like about these things.

You could fix this. Put in their names, their talent, their cutie marks next to or beneath each one. If you can’t fit it by each one, put in numbers and a key at the bottom. The cousins lines serve no purpose and you can lose those too to free up space; they’re children of siblings, that’s the exact definition of first cousins, and I can see from the way the parents link above that they’re cousins. I don’t need a beige line to tell me what the family tree already tells me. Need still more space? Split it into smaller sections. The rightmost four plus Lyrabon and Trixie/Blueblood(?) connect to literally nothing else but themselves, and neither does the leftmost set of two couples; you could gain space for useful information by splitting them to other charts and lose nothing whatsoever of the interlinkings. Lots of things you could do to fit the text information in the picture, and more, and have a worthwhile picture that actually describes your world to people who aren’t already familiar with it.

@TempestShadow
People don’t like their precious ships taken from them, especially if they’re gay or in general things they can’t understand.
I love charts like this, which is why I made it, but this always happens and it’s sad.

At least they’re not being gross in the comments yet
