Most ships are stupid.

Throw my hat in with the free Twilestia and Lunashy or whoever they ship Luna with these days crowd. I'm not going to vigorously defend because I can't bring myself to give that much of a shit but the rule is suspect at best.

Ones upon a time Luna dated fluttershy and then the mods banned it the end

Oh my god stop shitposting in DPC, we almost had a shitpost-free DPC for one whole day.

But yeah, Twilestia, Twiluna, Big Luna, Discoshy, Rarilestia, whatever, I feel like the ban is based on an extremely negative reading of the material. A large part of the ban (IIRC, the actual argument kinda... is gone) was on the basis that the relationship is imbalanced, largely because one half is ages old and usually a sovereign ruler of the nation. This always seemed flimsy to me, like, in a picture of Twilight and Celestia snuggling, are we to take the emotional and power dynamic between them to be so inherent and so unhealthy that it permeates an image that, if it had Pinkie Pie instead, would be fine?

It always seemed flimsy to me.

Also official material never seemed that concerned over it. Someone post that Luna kissing Mac thing from the comics for me.

It's very naughty for a mentor to date their student.

Exactly. Which is why we should allow Twiluna and Rarilestia instead.

I'm fine with Twilestia as long as people don't post stuff that actually veers into unhealthy power dynamics (which is what the ban was about in the first place) and admittedly I trust people to handle that responsibility. Don't be a butt about it and it's fine, IMO.

would you tell a real person it's creepy that they're in a happy relationship with someone who has more control over them than vice versa?

what it boils down to, i think, is that both characters involved in any ship are portrayed as consenting and not being coaxed or tied down by such power dynamics

A corollary: shipping in EqG between students and teachers/faculty should still be out, imo.

For sure, since that's a very non-magical age difference. Adults and teens shouldn't be shipped together at any rate.

Still think Celestia and twilight is incredibly creepy. The magical age thing never really bothered me with Celestia ships, but the Teacher/Student thing is just creepy.

I still think it’s creepy but as long as it’s contained to shipping threads that I can easily ignore I don’t care if other people like it.

I think it'd be creepier if Celestia's teaching style wasn't mostly pretty hands-off in the show. I feel like around the point where she becomes a princess it's probably fair to say Twilight has self-actualized and graduated from friendship school and done it all pretty far out from under Celestia's wing so it's not really a stretch to portray them as something closer to equals.

Yeah, Twilight shouldn't be shipped with anyone because she's everyone's teacher.

I trusted you all with not making standard shipping creepy when it was first unbanned, so I know I can trust you all with this. :pcstare:
