Startling insights · 5:52pm
I've made a startling insight into how our fandom works. Especially on one key point. Now, this is probably going to shock most of you so you might want to sit down for this.
People... don't like Prince Blueblood.
Shocking, isn't it?!
It's kind of for a good reason though, since he's sort of, kind of a colossal douche. Then again you could say the same for Trixie, Gilda, Discord, Chrysalis, Flim and Flam. And except for the last one (maybe) we've consistently made backstory and redemption fics for all of them.
Blueblood's no exception I guess, but I can only name like... two or three redemption stories of his off the top of my head. The best night ever, which is the Groundhog Day loop one, the prince and the workhorse which I've never read. Then there's the one where he does farm work to learn to be a better stallion to win Rarity over.
And of course I have to look into the whole shipping aspect, which is very limited when it comes to this guy. Most people ship him with Rarity if they ever do, but I do know there are people who ship him with Trixie (the two braggarts, hah.) I'm sure there are people who ship him with Big Mac, though I've never seen anything like that, which goes the same for people shipping him with Twilight.
Anyway, the Tl;DR version is that I'm already half finished with a Red Archive for Twilight X Blueblood (both of them are swapped, which I'll explain when I post it). So there's that.
