Six pairings I love:
3. Big Mac/Cheerilee
4. Octavia/Vinyl Scratch
Three pairings I'm not crazy about but I can live with:
7. Rainbow Dash/Fluttershy
8. Derpy/Carrot Top
Three ships I can't stand:
12. Big Mac/Fluttershy
Two ships I'll experiment with:
1. Why do you dislike #11 so much?
I'm generally against any ships involving Pinkie. They all seem "off" in a way.
2. Who do you know that ships #13?
I read a pretty good fanfic that had Twilight/Rarity as the basis of.
3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3?
A nice quiet date away from everyone else (as seen in "Just For Sidekicks").
4. What is your favourite moment for #1?
The entirety of "Look Before You Sleep" and "Things are better when they're a 'Rarity'." from "The Crystal Empire pt. 2"
5. How long have you been following couple #6?
Since he said "Have you missed me Celestia? I've missed you" and "I've forgotten how grim you can be Celestia" from "Return of Harmony Pt. 1".
6. What's the story with #8? What made you stop caring?
I'm more interested in Derpy/Doctor, but I've seen a few good things that ship Derpy/Carrot Top.
7. Which ship do you prefer--#2 or #4?
Octavia/Vinyl is my second favorite ship behind Rarity/Applejack. Not bad for two characters with about a minutes worth of screentime (combined) who have never interacted in canon.
8. You have the power to make one ship non-existent. Choose from #10 or #12.
Fluttershy/Big Mac. Outside of being being mostly introverted shy ponies, how could anyone put these two together?
9. What interests you about #14?
I read a pretty good fanfic that had them together and of all the ships that you could make with Pinkie, I actually liked that one the most.
10. When did you stop liking #7?
I never really did "stop" liking it, I just don't like it as much as the others (although Season 2 gave me plenty to work with).
11. Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the series?
Not at all. It's two background Ponies who had (barely) a conversation once in the series. Why would I stop then?
12. What's a song that reminds you of #5?
"Travelling Man" by Chameleon Circuit (Probably because that song is actually about the Doctor and since I think that "Doctor Whooves" as he appears in the series is specifically the 10th Doctor between "Journey's End" and "End of Time", it adds that tragic air to them)
13. Which of these ships do you love the most right now?
Rarity/Applejack. Just because of the sheer "Opposites attract" part of it.
14. Which do you dislike the most?
Discord/Pinkie. Just because the two of them are random 4th wall breakers doesn't make them being together any less creepy.
15. If you could have any of these pairings double date, who would they be?
Rarity/Applejack and Octavia/Scratch. The two (based off of "opposites attract") would have much in common (at least, Rarity and Octavia. Applejack and Scratch would have long pauses, until Applejack reminds Octavia that a relative of hers is part of the Apple Family (Fiddlesticks or whatever they call the Octavia recolor that appears during "Raise This Barn".))
16. Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if yes.
No. Although, you could call "Magic Duel" an extended bout of hate sex.
17. Did #4 have a happy ending? Do you think one is likely?
It depends on where the main fanfic I'm reading about them goes. I personally think "Yes", but since the last cliffhanger involved Octavia's rather controlling, heteronormative crusader mother showing up their shared apartment while the two of them were on a date...
18. What would make you start shipping #13?
It just seems kind of "right", albeit in a kind of racist (unicorns with unicorns) kind of way.
19. If only one could happen, which would you prefer--#2, #1 or #6?
Number 1. Rarity/Applejack remains my main ship of choice.
20. You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?
Discord merely roomed with Fluttershy while they tried to reform him simply because he thought it would be funny while he learned that she actually thought that he was a friend of hers. Nothing more.
