I think your flashbacks will be fine.

Also, I ship Twinkie, Fluttarity and Appledash.

I blame a fellow pony author, Gabriel LaVedier (if you've read any of the Bad Apple series of stories, that's him) for getting me hooked on Twinkie.  Twilight having a pet name for Pinkie of 'My little cookbook' gave me diabetes.  Again.

Fluttarity? Hello, weekly spa dates?

Appledash... ... I should hope that one's obvious.

So, none of your shps overlap?

I focus mostly on Celestia/Discord, but occasionally ship Appledash and Rainbow Pie because YAY LEZBEANS.

I was thinking of having a Dislestia fanfic. They have a son.
(click to show/hide)
That's why he was laughing.

Here's a potential picture of him.

I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Good luck with the fic, but to me Rarity and Pinkie Pie seems a bit weird.
Dude, almost all shipping for this show seems weird to me. It's so... innocent, I rarely think of icky romance. *E13 has regressed to the mind set of a 9 year old).

No, I agree that most shipping is weird. It's just that those two characters fit the best out of all the combinations.

I think I know of a way to improve my fic.  I need to better employ the tool of UNRESOLVED SEXUAL TENSION!

That is to say, Pinkie will confess her love to Rarity (possibly rather bubbly), and Rarity's response will make things rather awkward for both of them for the rest of the way back to Ponyville.  this awkwardness will start affecting their day to day interaction, and their friends will notice, and then stuff will go down from there.

That's the idea I came up with while taking a shower this morning.

Well damn, that's a tricky question.  I think it would be pretty neat to see veteran voice actor Billy West on the show.

My choices:
1. Charlie Adler-veteran cartoon voice actor, he did the voice for G1 Spike back in the 80's
2. Mark Hamill- If they can get Q(John de Lancie), they can get Luke Skywalker, and the fact that he has a resume full of cartoon voice work is a good thing
3. Stephen Colbert- he's done cartoon voice work, and he gave a shout out to us bronies on his show

George Takei. Because he's been doing a lot of voice work lately anyway, and is quite obviously the most awesome man alive.

Mako!
...oh wait... /bad joke

I don't know a lot of the voice actors, but I would be mightily amused if Martin Billany did a voice.

There's not even words to describe how full of win that would be... Takei is the man.

B:  UST can work, and can even lend a bit of comedy to the work.  Good choice.

As for your earlier post, "Distastefully formal" is basically... you're trying to be too strict in your writing.  Your dialogue is so stiff to the point that you're writing more how you think they should sound, rather than how they actually sound.  Writers for Pinkie are a good example of this, as well as Dash.

"Talking at the reader"... have you ever heard of the "Show, don't tell" rule? sounds like you were doing a lot of telling the potential reader "they did this, and this, and this" rather than showing us in the story.  It's a common pitfall.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.
