  5. I mean, that's fair, but at the same time the comparison was about the plot/storyline, not about the current popularity of the material getting a movie.
  6. I hear what you're saying, but consider this: Jeric
  7. I'mma be real with you: That is beginning to sound like That other Sony movie I don't wanna remember, so hearing that sony was gonna do that again, but with ponies... Also, I'm too lazy to find it. If anyone can find that one Pony Thread Simulator where 4Chan makes a movie trailer ala "Smurfs", but with ponies, That'd be great.
  8. I mean, it's definitely the least flattering view for the ponies, I'll give you that, but I wouldn't say it's ugly. Lemme put it like this, I've seen both Deadpool movies in theaters, and the second one is definitely much better than the first. But just because I view the 2nd one as a 10, that doesn't really change how the 1st is a 9. It's not bad, just comparatively worse.
  9. I mean, that's a fair criticism, but I still see this as a situation of creativity and imagination VS efficiency and simplicity. And with that viewpoint, I see the "name mashing" style of naming to be boring, very "cookie cutter"-esque, and lacking a lot of heart, which is very funny and ironic to me considering the topic of relationships, which is the point of shipping. Or at least my point. Yes, it makes things easier, but you know what else is easier? Not getting out of bed when you're too tired to go in to work. Not showering because you just don't feel like it. Not eating because you're just not in the mood, or eating too much. All these things are technically easier, but they're not necessarily better. And that's exactly how I feel about ship names as they are. And besides, when I joined the FNDM, I learned a lot of the main ship names long before I even thought of getting into RWBY shipping myself. If the community is large enough and has enough fanart, it becomes increasingly harder to not find ship art with fancier names, because you already get familiar with it though pattern recognition and familiarity. Now, if a community is too small to make such a thing work, I can understand using the name fusion method. But fanbases like us for example, who are or used to be well known for being very creative, have very little reasoning in my eyes to be lazy.
  10. Reviving this thread with another alt ship name of more effort, Maud X Starlight Glimmer: "Power of Rock", as it references not much Maud's thing with rocks and how Starlight is just straight up super powerful, but also how they first met: Starlight asking about a rock powerful enough to hold a bunch of cutie marks.
  11. Yeah, but again, social anxiety and fear of being different.
  12. Basically, yes. As I see how I made this thread, there are no wrong answers to ship names, other than mashing character names together, especially with how low my standards are. As long as the made up ship name has some form of meaning behind it and relates to the characters, I count it as being more creative than the “copy/paste character name fusion” system everyone ever uses. Yeah, you definitely got my concept down. Because in the end, this isn’t about good or bad ship names. It’s about having some creativity. As long as it’s not “character name + character name = ship name; wash, rinse, repeat”, it’s what I’m looking for. —- Anyways, I like the logic you had going with “Book of Life” and it fits with what I’m looking for in this thread, so lemme give you an alternative idea with the same general vibe, because discussion of ideas: “Zoology” and/or “Zoologist”: It’s the study of animals, which fits with Fluttershy’s love for them and fits with Twilight’s love of learning and studying.
  13. I’m p sure that my high school didn’t have that be a mandatory, considering how I never saw anyone ever use them despite having them. And because I had (debatably still do) LOTS of issues about my body on of social anxiety and a fear of being “quirky and weird”, I just followed the herd and never used them. i was totally willing tho.
