One of the biggest draws of My Little Pony: Friends Forever is the series' ability to take (sometimes unlikely) pairings of characters and tell compelling and funny stories around them. So since I already made a list of season six plots I'd like to see, here are some character pairings I'd like to see explored in the Friends Forever comic series. I've even included some brief summaries of potential stories that could be written for them. (I was originally going to make this a "Top 10" list, but as I put the list together, I couldn't decide which idea I liked best.)
Tell me what you think, and feel free to share any pairings you yourself would like to see.
- Pinkie Pie and Cherry Jubilee: Pinkie Pie teams up with Cherry Jubilee to make her vision of the chimicherrychanga a reality and a success.
- Spike and Big McIntosh: It's the Whicker Bowl! The biggest hoofball event of the year! And this year, Spike and Big McIntosh have tickets. Now if they can just get to the stadium in San Flanksisco without the universe getting in the way...
- Sweetie Belle and Diamond Tiara: Sweetie Belle and Diamond Tiara are paired together on a school project. They may be friends now, but they still have a long way to go, and because they each have their own way of doing things, teamwork is far from instantaneous.
- Zecora and the Flower Trio: Daisy, Lily Valley, and Rose have run out of their favorite flower seeds. Luckily, there's a valley near Ponyville where the flower grows. There's just one problem: the valley is on the other side of the Everfree Forest! THE HORROR! They could ask Zecora to be their forest guide... but they're still a little scared of her.
- Cranky Doodle Donkey and Steven Magnet: The untold tale of how Cranky Doodle and Steven Magnet first met and Cranky saved Steven's life from Flash Freeze Lake. It's a tale of adventure, danger, intrigue, and fabulous hair!
- Shining Armor and Flash Sentry: Flash Sentry is a laughing stock among his fellow royal guards (he got spooked by an opossum, for pony's sake!), so it's up to former royal guard captain Shining Armor to help him "find his wings", in a manner of speaking.
- DJ Pon-3 and Octavia Melody: Octavia gets a chance to perform with the Canterlot Royal Philharmonic, the most exclusive orchestra in Equestria. Seems like a sure thing—just as long as DJ doesn't embarrass her in front of the Philharmonic Selection Committee.
- Twilight Sparkle and Trixie
- Princess Celestia and Princess Luna
- Princess Celestia and Discord
- Apple Bloom and Maud Pie
- Snips and Snails
- Lyra Heartstrings and Sweetie Drops
