  1. This is the ship spark that basically started it all. Spike almost kissing Applejack is a pretty hilariously adorable moment between the two.
  2. I admit it. I like Spike. Yeah, I know. It's a complete and utter shock, right? Who could have guessed? Alert the presses, everyone! MallaJong likes Spike! What others don't know, though, is my appreciation for the AppleSpike ship. Sure, my favorite MLP ship is the rare and mystifying RainbowSpike. If you've been reading Spike's Rainbow Dash, you already have an idea why, in my opinion, I believe it's the most glorious vessel of all time. For two individuals of loyalty bound by romance conceive formidableness like no other. Enough about that ship, because this blog post is about the always adorable AppleSpike. Placed as my second favorite ship, AppleSpike has always been alive and thriving for quite some time now within the fandom, and the reason is mostly due to the fact that it doesn’t need powerful execution for others to realize it’s believable. Unlike RainbowSpike, FlutterSpike or even SpikeBloom, AppleSpike stands its ground by the will of imagination alone. It’s an entirely probable ship that, dare I say, could in in fact become canon. But wait! That’s blasphemy, MallaJong! It’s obvious Sparity is the OTP of MLP! GAHHHH!!! Calm your horses. I’m not trying to belittle Sparity in any way. It’s apparent the writers intended on making Sparity the canon ship, but that doesn’t mean AppleSpike isn’t able to be such either. Call it far-fetched, but I can’t help but notice multiple ship spark interactions between Applejack and Spike. It almost seems as if there are hints thrown at the viewer of AppleSpike coming into existence. Of course, we see what we seek, so I understand that because I believe I’ve spotted something doesn’t actually make it truth. Nonetheless, many are especially fond of the idea of Applejack and Spike getting together, and there are many reasons why. Applejack and Spike really have much more in common than one might initially recognize. And just for you I’ll list the top three reigning likenesses. 3. Diligence This reason is pretty straightforward. We’ve seen time and time again both Spike and Applejack work tirelessly for others, even at the stake of their own well-being. Spike works hard for not only Twilight but for the Mane Six as a whole (adding his input, cooking, researching, etc.), while Applejack’s sacrifices are just as plentiful. ‘Exhausted Spike’ and ‘Exhausted Applejack’ are so canon it’s almost comedic in a sense. Their aid at times goes beyond their capabilities, and it’s this persistence that greatly appeals to AppleSpike fans. Not to say that the other ponies don’t show diligence in their efforts, because they do. But one cannot deny that it’s perhaps easier to pair Spike and Applejack in this category firsthand. So it’s not surprising countless AppleSpike fanfiction pieces start off with Spike and Applejack bucking trees together at Sweet Apple Acres. They’re just two very hardworking characters toiling under the sun. http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTV0APywx2O6KSTCDOHdOpH9b4_vKkCI1trdeUBUGJImhqa0SMoeodjaYd9YA 2. Honesty Let’s get the obvious reason out of the way. Applejack is the Element is Honesty. She’s honest. We all know this, and there isn’t any need to discuss it further. When it comes to Spike, however, truthfulness tends to be a very keen attribute. Spike has lied before. That’s a given. Yet it’s because of the fact that he lied that he ended up learning and developing into the strong, admirable character he is today. Let’s refer to the Owlicious episode, for example. It wasn’t until Spike admitted his true feelings to Twilight that he realized how immature his misbehavior had been. How about his love for Rarity? Similarly to how Applejack isn’t able to lie through her teeth without appearing conspicuous, Spike makes it painfully obvious how much he loves the white unicorn. In the beginning he wasn’t able to hide it, and now it seems like he accepts and takes pride in his preferences. In the Crystal Empire episode, when Spike first noticed how eerily the castle staircase appeared in its descent to the bottom, he made it clear how scared he was. Throughout the entire series, we’ve observed Spike fully expose his inner sentiments (irritation, pleasure, excitement, etc.). And it’s this blatancy – this frankness – that allows AppleSpike to persevere through conflict within their own stories. 1. The Voice of Reason Let’s face it: Contrary to what some believe, Twilight Sparkle isn’t the voice of reason of the group. Not always, anyway. So who oftentimes takes this role? Applejack…and Spike. This shouldn’t come off as a shock. When Spike’s not thinking straight, Applejack’s the voice. When Applejack’s not, Spike’s the voice. These two link together like chains. Applejack and Spike are the very representation of level-headedness. They’re both mature characters that understand how to properly apply reasoning to their surroundings. I don’t even feel I need to note down examples for these instances, because I can tell you’re already recalling a few as you read this. In conclusion, AppleSpike is the most level-headed ship of the bunch. And that should bring light to why the ship works. They’re the voice of reason, yet in the show they’re almost never given utmost consideration by the rest of the cast. In less than two weeks, an AppleSpike episode will be released. It’s entitled “Spike At Your Service”. This is the episode synopsis: Just as Spike is about to be gobbled up by hungry Timberwolves, he is saved by Applejack; Spike feels the need to repay Applejack and is soon offering a little too much assistance on the farm in order to fulfill the "Noble Dragon Code”. This episode sounds hilarious, adorable and filled with so many “ship sparks” it’s insane. Just by the synopsis alone, I can already think of over a dozen AppleSpike ideas. That’s how powerful the AppleSpike ship is, and this episode will surely provide a lot more resources for the vessel. This is the episode I am most excited for Season 3. It’s neither a Spike-centered episode nor an Applejack-centered episode. It’s a collective APPLESPIKE episode. Our favorite baby dragon and cowpony are finally enjoying more screen time in the world of Equestria. And I cannot wait for all the AppleSpike fanfictions, fanart and fanvideos to spawn from this episode. Although I’ve only fully read one AppleSpike fanfiction, I am still a lover for the pairing. What does this upcoming episode mean for the fandom? It’s sure to serve as the lock on that AppleSpike door. It’s the fallback in case one runs into any doubts. The game-changing strike! It’s a moment for AppleSpike fans everywhere to rejoice over, and its history will forever be recorded in the hearts and minds of bronies. So get out there, everyone! Write an AppleSpike fanfiction right now! Of course, if you’re short on ideas and require some inspiration, you’ll be sure to be receiving some soon in the coming weeks. This was written to shed some light on the AppleSpike fandom. After I found out that an AppleSpike episode was coming up, I felt compelled to produce a list of reasons why it works.
  3. He gets his due when the AppleSpike episode (S3E8) comes out. There are going to be so many ship sparks available to the fans it will be crazy!
  4. Why is this episode one of the best episodes of all time thus far? 1) Scootaloo-centered episode. She underwent so much character development and sported so many varying facial expressions in one episode that a d'aww and a HNNG! couldn't NOT be produced from the viewer. And guess what? Scootaloo turned out to be an extremely entertaining character! 2) It held consistency with Cutie Mark Crusaders behavior, Rarity's humourous bourgeoise appeal, Applejack's head-nodding maturity and Rainbow Dash's spunkiness. These are all characters that we love to see interact with each other, and the writers pulled it off splendidly. Not to mention the chuckles and overall replay value! 3)Sweetie Belle song. If that little fully sings a song - no matter what song it is - it's an automatic victory for the viewer. 4) The MEMES! Oh, the MEMES! The Fanfics! Oh, the FANFICS! The FAN VIDEOS!!! Oh, the FANVIDEOS!!! This episode produced so many potential memes, fanfics and FANVIDEOS that it's downright scary. And that's a good thing. We can expect so many laughs and d'awws in the future. 5) Princess Luna. Enough's been said. 6) Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo's sister-like relationship is finally canon. We can probably expect Scootaloo's flight skills to be advancing much more quickly as future episodes come out. 7) Do I need to say more? AGAIN, IT'S A FU#%ING SCOOTALOO EPISODE! Hands down one of my favorite episodes. It was humorous, suspenseful, d'aww worthy and utterly satiating. Simply put: I feel good. Now it's time I go continue Spike's Scootaloo.
  5. I loved it. Spike is the best character in the series, and he truly shined in this episode. A lot of SpikeLight shipping sparks on this episode, and Pinkie Pie's Fluttershy disguise was an ultimate WTF moment.
  6. Same for me, my friend! I remember I always laughed at Spike's lines, and ended marking him as my favorite character in the beginning. There is a Spike-centered episode coming called "Spike At Your Service"! Class Door-In-The-Face joke. Hahaha. I'm sure Spike is going to be jumped by all the Crystal Empire mares if he get returns.
  7. Mane 7. That actually does sound about right. When it comes to Spike growing a pair and saving an empire, I think he is definitely a necessity when it comes to Harmony. He also got Twilighy Sparkle out of that trance at the bottom of the stairs. If he wasn't there and Twilight would have gone by herself, she would have been BUCKED!
  8. I believe it is safe to say that Spike is the all-time SWAGON in the history of Equestria. There's now a Canterlot Castle Window dedicated to his heroics at the Crystal Empire! That is top-class James Bond material right there! Give Spike ALL the medals! That dragon has just climbed higher into the list of my all-time favorite dragons, baby! Spike was getting some lovin', too! Is it me or were there A LOT of Shipping Sparks between Spike and Twilight Sparkle in this premier? Either way, Spike was getting down and dirty as he sped through the sky, heading straight for the evil of King Sombra! The Crystal Heart was then restored, and Spike came out victorious! Of course, with the help of his friends Spike achieved success and garnered praise for his accomplishments, though I am still elated that the writers have decided to give Spike the credit he deserves!!!! So now Season 3 has begun, and it has blasted off very well indeed! I just have to state one thing: Spike gets all the bitches. Yeah, Spike has been my favorite character in the entire series. So I'd like to dedicate this thread to posting Spike's Awesomeness! Leave a line, leave a picture, leave anything for our man Spike! I'll start: Have a good day, everyone!
  9. I love the Breaking Bad reference. Thank you for that. The moment I noticed "meth" had been linked, I kept thinking "Please be a Breaking Bad picture! Please be a Breaking Bad picture!". Hahaha! Walter White/Heisenberg all the way, baby!
  10. Only 1247? Check the date. Spike's Rainbow Dash has been up for a little over a month, and it's incomplete. I was not in a contest either. I am just making note of the support Spike x Rainbow Dash has.
  11. Well, it seems thousands agree with me. http://www.fimfiction.net/story/46048/Spike's-Rainbow-Dash
  12. Spike and Rainbow Dash are perfect for each other. It is odd to me that they are not shipped often, when it is plainly obvious that they have many coinciding interests and likes. There, I said it.
  13. Now I am talking about the BEST of the BEST! The ones that made you laugh so hard you cried! The ones that had you awestruck, dumbstruck, lovestruck and just plain stuck...to your seat. The ones you always look back at just because it was the funniest, most clever, most awesome, most beautiful MLP meme you had ever come upon. The classics, the newbies, the bosses. THE BEST OF THE BEST! Post them here. And...go.
  14. I understand that YOU UNDERSTAND you have just become part of the problem, but, seriously, you didn't have to make a post complaining about other people complaining. Let them do their thing. Who cares? It's a fandom, not the election of the century.
  15. So, yeah, how many times do you think you're going to view My Little Pony Season 3 Episode 1 when it is released? It will be out for a week before episode 2, right? Personally, I am guessing I'll watch it 2-3 times. I like the show, but I am more excited for what the fanbase is going to create.
