• Discussion: How Would You Handle Canon Mane 6 Romance?

    Season 8 is off in the distance, and many an episode remains to be revealed. We've only had one reveal so far, and there wasn't a whole lot of bridging between this and the next.

    One concept that has been a hot button issue over the years is the idea of the mane 6 hooking up with other ponies romantically. When Flash Sentry woo'd Twilight back in season one, the firestorm was massive. Introducing a concept like that into the pony side of the show would be just as difficult with how attached people are to the characters.

    Say it happens though. Say Season 8 sees the big coupling of Fluttershy and... Thunderlane or something. How would you react? How do you think the fandom would react?
