What do you call a noose with no loop?

I reviewed your story here.

Let me know what you think.

2412444 Fair enough! And I do see where you're coming from. I see it more as, well, the six are already good friends. It's not that much of a stretch (depending on which two, of course) for it to become more than friends for more than just one pairing. Doing all *six* (or seven, nowadays) though does certainly stretch that too far.

2411749 I don't have any special affinity for Appledash or a particular desire to write it myself, though I'm not someone who gets particularly attached to any given ship. Anything can work, you just need to be able to tell a good story with it.

That being said, I'm not really a fan of side-shipping in general. It tends to strain suspension of disbelief for me, introducing a secondary relationship in a story that isn't focused around that, often feeling like an authors preference inserted into the story, rather than something natural that stems from the choices and actions of the characters involved.
