    My thoughts on shipping

    So as you can tell I am the biggest Fluttercord nerd well surprisingly some more than I but as much as I ship this I still have one question on my mind and why do we do it mentally. Why do we ship to begin with? Some have a lot of reason or different reasons. I ship because I love this paring but why do I make constant love out of this. Is it possible to ship so much because you're lonely? At the

So as you can tell I am the biggest Fluttercord nerd well surprisingly some more than I but as much as I ship this I still have one question on my mind and why do we do it mentally. Why do we ship to begin with? Some have a lot of reason or different reasons. I ship because I love this paring but why do I make constant love out of this. Is it possible to ship so much because you're lonely? At the same time I love the brony culture you know...all of MLP fans and Fluttercord fans because it is both fun and it gives me something to escape to as so to say very fun and gives a lot of nerdy but funny culture which sustains my mind in my deprivation of real life for my solitary love of this time taker. Most argue it is a child show but at the same time hearing writers speak of them putting adult lessons situations in as well at bronycon "through videos" as much as I wish I could go to Bronycon but I don't have that kind of money and live in the middle of nowhere but I think it is for adults as well considering there are a lot of things that children won't even understand in this show and considering Discord which is the funniest cahracter is more towards and adult character. It never hurts for adults to learn things as well. Overall I love this show and my quite adorable shipping preference. I think we ship because either 2 or 3 reasons. #1. We are lonely and need this subjected pairing for a time filler and a cute alternative #2. because the pairing is just an adorable couple or #3. because we are sucked in to it by other shippers who we probably did not even ship to begin with at the beginning of the show but were introduced to the shipping phandom. I wish to hear some responses as to why you think we ship maybe? or what are your thoughts on it? :moustache:

I've thought about this myself as well. I do think many people ship things because of their loneliness/yearning for more romantic interactions in their lives or because they thing a pair is cute. However, I also know from realtime experience that some may like a few ships due to wanting to see a meaningful relationship develop between characters, most likely based on one's own preferences in what makes a relationship.

I ship Fluttercord, of course =) but I also really like a few others, such as SU Lapidot, Pokemon GuildShipping, and I liked FiddAuthor from Gravity Falls for a time... regardless of whether or not you know these fandoms, there is a pattern with each of these ships: the characters involved are all canonically very, very close friends with strong bonds (even TVTropes considers the characters in GuildShipping to be life partners with a bond stronger than most actual couples!) that could be romantic, and at the same time share experiences or personalities for them to grow on to become better people overall. In that way, I ship it because that fits my opinion on a meaningful relationship and I love. Because you know, even though these are fictional characters, through these ships... there's something so human about it too.
