Pony Couples: Princess Cadance/Shining Armor

Welcome back to yet another installment of Pony Couples. As I did last year, I will be posting fan art collections of my favorite My Little Pony shippings all throughout the month of February in honor of Valentines Day.

I decided to kick of this year's installment with an official Pony shipping: Princess Cadance and Shining Armor. Strangely enough, despite being an official couple, this one also seems to be the least popular. Many times I see Shining Armor shipped with other ponies, and in many cases, even with stallions! Sometimes he's even shipped with Twi...blech!...cough....excuse me, I just threw up a little in my mouth thinking about it.

Because of this, I haven't seen much original fan art of them. Most of the time it's vectors from the show. But I managed to find a few original pieces just for this. Enjoy!

Princess Cadance waking next to Shining Armor after their wedding night. (Insert snarky comment about the night before here.)



You're the Song of my Life and my Love by *johnjoseco on deviantART

Cadance snuggling next to Shining Armor under a blanket before an open fire. (With Shining Armor nipping at her nose!)



Off to do my Duty by *johnjoseco on deviantART

When Shining Armor comes home in victory, she'll meet him at the door. What does he want? A girl worth fighting for! Who does he have? A girl worth fighting for! (Guess the Reference #1)

Cadence and Shining Armor by *SilverFlight on deviantART

You've got to believe in the Power of Love. You've got to believe in the Power of Love. It gives meaning to each moment; it's what our hearts are all made of! You've got to believe, in the Power of Love. The Power of Love! (Guess the Reference #2)



Sleeping Cadence by *Vivifx on deviantART

The two and Queen Chrysalis roleplaying Sleeping Beauty. This is rather fitting, as A Canterlot Wedding did feel like a plot to a Disney movie. Of course, it felt more like The Little Mermaid, with Chrysalis pretending to be Cadence and stealing her prince.

The two as itty-bitty babies...er, I mean foals. Cute!

And what will baby Cadance do when she grows up? She's gonna be a movie star, and she's gonna learn to drive a car, gonna be a veterinarian too, and she's gonna always love you! (Guess the Reference #3)



Shining Armor And Cadence Humanized. by ~emawolf on deviantART

The two as a human couple. This style almost looks like Disney. Again, this is fitting, as their story sounds like a Disney movie.




Shining Armor sends out Cadance. Cadance uses Seismic Toss. It's super effective!

I mentioned this in my recap of "The Crystal Empire," but I never did like the scene where Shining Armor threw his wife. Think about it. Princess Cadance had been keeping the magical force field up without eating or sleeping, depriving her of energy. Under that condition, does anyone honestly think that it was wise for Shining Armor to toss her like that? Would Cadance really had had the energy to fly to Spike's rescue. If anything, she should have plummeted to the ground. Oh well!

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in the baby carriage...er, well, the bun is still in the oven here! But there will be a baby carriage coming with it!




No baby carriage yet, but it seems like the baby will be arriving soon! ;)
