Discussion

This week, Alca7raz and Nemesis lose their minds and talk about… shipping! Not the kind with boxes (well, usually), but the kind with ponies! What it is, what’s popular, what’s not popular. Even which ships they like and don’t like. Plus, while doing this, they’re playing the “Twilight Sparkle’s Secret Shipfic Folder” cardgame. So sorry if things get a little off-track at times, they’re multitasking.

Plus, they have issue #23 of the My Little Pony comic to talk about. The one with the pets of the Mane 6! It’s a bit different than other issues, so what did they think of it?

Fanfiction:

Nemesis talked about the shipping prompt collaborations this week! Just search for “collab” or look here:

By the way, it appears AppleDash was the first shipping collab group, so Nemesis was wrong.
