Frequently Asked Questions

What is shipping?
Shipping is the act of portraying two characters in a relationship.

Where should I put my story?
There are a wide variety of folders in this group for your story. Stories to do with the main 6 should go in the relevent subfolder inside "Main 6 Pairings". Other folder names are fairly intuitive and it should be easy to understand where to put your story.

Can I put mature stories in this group?
You can, but it might be better for you to head over to the clopfics group for that kind of thing.

Why isn't there a folder for [insert my ship here]
I've selected a bunch of folders that I think cover most of the main ships. If you can make a good case for adding a new one, I might consider doing so.

Chicks love books just ask Belle.

Starlight + Sunburst = Sunlight

Ships I love and perfects

Ships I hate and don't count.

SoarinDash (Pairing with someone who is not her couple don't count and saying things without meaning, the character is not interested in him, never, spitfire and soarin are friends and idols of her not a lover.)
Fluttercord (Pairing a young girl with an old man, it is very unpleasant)
Flashlight (There were problems and fights one another, saying that something likes or don't like)

What kind of date do you think Twilight Sparkle would enjoy.

That episode is widely recognized as one of THE best, so good on you.

When looking for ships, i try to look for the ones that are not used often but still make some sort of sense. one of my favorite ships is Fluttershy and Zecora. mainly, it's because of the episode "A Health Of Information." (Season seven, Episode twenty.) mainly because Zecora has been nothing but helpful for Fluttershy and whenever the zebra got sick, flutters was oh so worried for her friend and didn't even stop to rest until she found helped her.

Since the new episode anyone else looming forward to ships with the new characters? I'm liking the idea of Smoke (spike x smolder)

I wasn't really one for shipping, since I planned on having the Main Six be single for their whole lives. However, after some thought about how I wanted to do my series, especially with the character additions, I changed my mind. I'll give the Main Six shipping a try, mainly with OC's, though I'm nowhere near that point yet:twilightblush:. Though, I'm definitely up for Polyamory:pinkiehappy:! So count me in:scootangel:!

I just had a misclick and added my new story "Mental Reflections" into a folder it doesn't belong in in this group. Could a mod remove it?

Whenever someone see’s a shipping fanfiction about a ship they dislike/hate

Try and think about which couple would make for the most engaging pairing story. If not engaging, funny :rainbowlaugh:

Can I place a story in more than one folder?

How do I write a good shipfic?

This group is missing a folder. Sunset X any-pony/person.

Sup everyone I have arrived here today

Can you features my group? It's for PinkieShy. You can find it here.

Please and thank you.

I hope you feature it. It would mean a lot.

I'm trying to that a lot of members, which is impossible because my fans almost never pay attention to my profile.

What about Lunbra? (Luna and Sombra)
