Pony Couples Portal

The following are fan art collections of my favorite shippings from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

For those of you who aren’t internet-savvy, a “shipping” is a fan coupling of two characters within a medium—in this case, My Little Pony.

Unfortunately, when it comes to ponies, most of the shippings tend to be “yuri,” or lesbian—which isn’t all too unexpected in a show with mostly female characters. Nothing against homosexuals here. I just don’t see any of the ponies as lesbians, not even Rainbow Dash. Because of this, most of my favorite shippings will be heterosexual—what few actually exist in the fandom.
