To be fair, _they're_ speaking from the perspective of working on children's programming and dealing with the regulations thereof; what _they_ might perceive as being more _obviously_ romantic could easily come off as platonic to some fans just due to how the creators have to skirt around regulations they're still ultimately beholden to; FiM and EG are, ultimately, _still_ series made to market a line of toys at the end of the day after all.

We as _fans_ can write Sunset as explicitly bi, straight, lesbian or whatever we _want_ her to be because we're _totally_ out of Hasbro's control; the staff actually writing the show have to make sure the bigwigs _sign off_ on stuff before they go ahead with it. And big companies are generally pretty damn risk-adverse, especially if the thing in question is meant to be advertising toys.

I think the unspoken bit is "obvious _as we could make it_", in this case; it's why you see the Twitter confirmation so often.

The fact that Sunsetsparkle, as a ship, _+exploded+_ in popularity after Rainbow Rocks in no small part _due_ to aforementioned kitchen scene makes me think that it had to have been at least _somewhat_ intentional on their part.

In that context, it's easy to see how they'd work around the limits to tease ships, but still be beholden to not going too far with the teasing.

I doubt Hasbro was necessarily going to be full steam ahead on a same-sex relationship when they...have toys and other such product to sell.
