Could you put the Japanese text in the description so that we can try our luck with copy-pasting it into Google Translate? Eh, a poor English is better than a Japanese there exist no way of translating. Besides ...

Shipping is a term in fandoms that denotes the act of taking two characters from a fictional work and envisioning them in a relationship, romantic or otherwise. The people supporting given ships are often called “shippers” and are sometimes generalized as being obsessive over their desired pairings and violent when defending them, although this is a stereotypical presentation of the subgroup.

Shipping is not limited to heterosexual relationships, and tend to ignore social taboos around subjects such as incest and bestiality. Homosexual pairings are also rather common in most fandoms, especially in those building around a fictional work that has more characters of one gender, like My Little Pony.

As shipping has become an important part of the fandom experience, several terms have been created to further express the different aspects revolving around it. OTP, an abbreviation of One True Pairing, is used to depict a person's favorite ship and the one they are most invested in within the work in question.

Some characters are shipped together because their personalities match or differ in a way that makes the relationship interesting for a fan, such as Applejack and Rainbows ; because they are shown to spend more time together than with any other characters in canon, such as Lyra and Bon ; because their personalities are polar opposites while they share similar interests, such as Vinyl Scratch and Octavia ; or because canon itself hints at the relationship, such as Twilight Sparkle and Flash Sentry or Rarity and Spike. These types of ships can be completely random, created despite their bizarre nature, though others might have a connection through a third party despite never sharing any screen time themselves.

Rainbows, due to her rainbow -colored mane and tomboyish attitude, is often interpreted by the fandom to be a lesbian, and therefore holds one of the widest ranges of different ships. Apples : Applejack and Rainbow Dash are commonly shipped together because both share a similar physical lifestyle, both are competitive and stubborn, and both have a high sense of pride.

The episode Fall Weather Friends is seen as the main spark of this ship as it focuses on Applejack's and Rainbow Dash's competitive relationship. The ship was also referenced in the Equestrian Girls: Rainbow Rocks movie and in the season 5 episode Slice of Life.

VinylTavia : Despite only having one interaction in the show (in the episode Slice of Life), Vinyl Scratch and Octavia have become a popular pairing. Trixie : Similar to VinylTavia, Twilight Sparkle and Trixie are shipped because their personalities are greatly different, but both have talents related to magic.

The ship is usually initiated by Trixie stumbling upon Twilight after her appearance in Boast Busters, sometimes poor and broken and other times by pure accident and then taken back to Montville, where the two gradually grow to care for each other. The ship stems from Big Mac and Flutter shy having relatively similar characterization, with both of them being quite shy and quiet.

While they have quite different personalities, Rainbow Dash being bold and tomboyish while Flutter shy is timid and kind, they are still quite a common couple. While this relationship rarely takes a romantic turn, it generally involves the two of them traveling together to save the world alongside Derby's suggested daughters Dinky and Sparkler.

Cheering : In the episode Hearts and Hooves Day the Cutie Mark Crusaders try to get their teacher Cheerily and Big Macintosh together by giving them a love potion. FlashLight : In the movie My Little Pony Equestrian Girls, Twilight Sparkle develops a crush on the royal guard Flash Sentry and his human counterpart.

The movie never took their relationship further after Twilight returned to Equestrian, but the ship managed to gain some popularity. Despite this, the fandom is known to have a rather divided view of the character Flash Sentry, so this ship is also met with some criticism.

Because of their mutual love for parties and similar character traits, Pinkie Pie and Cheese Sandwich are commonly paired in fan labor. SoarinDash : Rainbow Dash is at times shipped with the Wonder bolt Soaring due to their similarities and interaction in various episodes.

Even the FlashLight ship has not been taken further than a crush Twilight is shown to have on Flash in the Equestrian Girls movies. This is mainly due to the fact that Friendship is Magic rarely focuses on romance in itself, unless it is a character designed specifically to be in a romantic relationship (like Shining Armor and Princess Cadence).

So my friend (@totytrc) is sulking over her carjack feelings and I decided to make a small 3-part comic Au to cheer her up so here's a little peek of part 1. The purpose of this thread is not political issues or civil opinions, but rather how people endorse their views with product or property that does not belong to them.

Thank you. For those not in the know, Ashleigh is a voice actress who works on many shows, one of which is the popular animated series “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”. Believe it or not, a similar incident happened a few years back when Nancy Cartwright had a cow and used Bart Simpson to call people up about Scientology.

Bart isn't a Scientologist, he's a mischievous little boy, and AJ & Rainbow aren't lesbian lovers, they're little ponies who live and work in a small town. I don't think that Matt Greening looked to fondly when Bart was used for endorsing Scientology, and I don't expect Hasbro to be okay with voice actors just using their properties to endorse their political or civil beliefs/views either.

In a 60 minutes interview, he was asked to do a line as Twenty or Bugs, but he said he couldn't because they aren't his characters. IP owners will get upset behind the scenes about this (their property being used for such a huge political situation by a voice actor they hired), but publicly to not get taken out back and told to look at the pretty flowers will put a smile on their face and let this “slide”.

Even if it was a heterosexual couple kissing, it would still come off as a bit weird to promote it in this fashion. Let's say you have a very well-known webcomic about school, but one of your staff, a lower-tier blog writer, uses its characters to promote something that endorses something that the comic of yours, your creation, is not about (like for lack of a better example, a specific religion), and without your permission.

Not say this is the exact case from the things mentioned prior, but it's another example of non-official endorsement. This isn't a political statement, and I think you're vastly overestimating the supposed unbiased professionalism a voice actor of a cartoon pony should portray on her own personal social media account.

She did the equivalent of wishing people a happy holiday and posted a piece of fan art relating to it. I guess I just don't get it. I, too, believe the political position that normal people should be treated equally is inappropriate. Sarcasm aside though, pony romance is weird in any context.

The difference here is that this endorsement isn't officially sanctioned by those in charge of the IP. While I find the message of World pride 2014 commendable, I don't think it's appropriate for someone actively involved on the production team to use characters from a licensed, copyrighted show in a serious context while avoiding the desires of the creative masterminds and management at Hasbro Studios, Studio B, and AHX Media. Not as a matter of personal “disgust” or “character integrity” but because the employees on the production team need to follow the initiatives handed down from management while they're committed to a project.

I do believe that professionalism should be of the utmost importance here, and making this public endorsement with the characters while completely sidestepping the wishes of the studio crosses that professionalism line a bit. There is a difference between casually saying a couple of silly lines in a SpongeBob voice to a fan and posting a public endorsement of World pride 2014 using the characters.

The latter is using Hasbro's characters in an unsolicited advertisement while being a member of the production staff. MLP itself stands for tolerance and acceptance, so ponies seem like a good vector for this sort of message to me.

Ashleigh even chose to only use characters which she herself voices, which reinforces the idea that she's speaking purely for herself. She seems like kind of a “no-fucks-given” kinda lady to me anyway, so I doubt she'll be losing any sleep over it one way or another.

If she posts a very high-quality render of two MLP lesbians kissing, it can be construed as an endorsement of World pride 2014 from the production staff...or Hasbro. And that can lead to a lot of unwarranted attention. That's the problem with this kind of things.

What if she'd not posted the picture, but added something about Applejack / Rainbows in her comment? If she posts a very high-quality render of two MLP lesbians kissing, it can be construed as an endorsement of World pride 2014 from the production staff...or Hasbro.

And that can lead to a lot of unwarranted attention. That's the problem with this kind of things. Let's be real here though, the show staff communicate with their fans via fan art all the time.

The only reason anyone's paying any attention now is because the art in question is slightly controversial (though obviously far more so than it ought to be). Forgive me if I retread what may be old ground for you, but I did google the question and “3-5 in pony years” was one of the nearest answers.

She is an actress and a musical and not a political or PR-manager, she can have her own opinion. I know many people don't like My little Pony, but one reason why this old franchise is relevant again is because the producers interacted with the fans, young and old and encouraged fan works. There's actual child characters in the show voiced by children.

Forgive me if I retread what may be old ground for you, but I did google the question and “3-5 in pony years” was one of the nearest answers. I can see where things could get messy but I'm assuming this will just fly by unless everyone makes a big deal out of it.

I don't think I've ever seen VO talent not post fan art stuff. Because they're both sexual mature adults past puberty (and both canonically gay).

In regard to Equine stuff? Young Horses are called Foals. It sure is funny, but I am interested in the topic and don't want the thread to be spammed with this joke.

And maybe you never heard of it but in Japan, Doujinshi, which are comics based on characters from existing properties and focuses on same-sex pairing, is very popular. The issue is that someone representing a company made a message using something related to that company. I'm too tired and stupid to go beyond that.

Ashleigh Ball is a voice actress and singer for the show, not in management or PR. This is her personal Twitter account, and she reposted a picture that would fall by law into parody of the show, if I'm not wrong. You people should leave Ashleigh alone and look at what Tara Strong is posting, there I can understand some outrage, since Tara occasionally post NSFW fan art material.

If it was a picture of Chuckle and Tommy from Rugrats making out, would it be “WWW” or This is fairly benign and a cute picture, but I hope that bronzes won't use it as another excuse to posit their “oppression” as on the level of homophobia/racism.

Sure some will, but despite the usage of the term Barony, adult My Little Pony fans are not a single minded entity. I know it's usual to judge a group of people who share a common interest in their worst, but the hate on the Broncs and resulting the hate on the show itself is ridiculous at times.
