Rainbow Dash: Stallion's Mare by GammaEradon Rainbow Dash: Stallion's Mare by GammaEradon
As much as I love all the interesting ships for Rainbow Dash with her friends and other mares, there's just something about the idea of a nice stallion who wants to cuddle and protect her (even if she doesn't need it) and her liking it, that makes me squee. And I do like to poke a little fun at the assumption that RD just *has* to be gay because she's athletic and has a rainbow mane.

Don't get me wrong: I love Dash shipping and some of them are really great: straight or gay it just depends on how well it's written. But hay, doesn't she deserve some male attention too now and again? XD

So here's Dash surrounded by the five most eligible stallions (well, sorta) in Equestria all vying for her attention and she's loving every minute of it. Hey, every girl deserves to be pampered and swooned over at least once in their lives.

Now, I've seen 4/5 of these ships in at least one story:
Braeburn: "Misted Stage"
Fancy Pants: "Eros Dreaming"
Soarin': Too Many To Count
Big Macintosh: A few, including my own stories

As for Shining Armor, don't get me wrong I *love* Cadance but this just struck me as a cute idea, Rainbow Dash getting all smitten with her friend's big brother, the strong *ahem* dashing captain of the guard, even if it was an unrequited crush. So, yay for crackshipping! Enjoy!

Can you please take your negative BS somewhere else?

I don't think the mane 6 are gay. I just think they're overly sensitive best friends and aren't ready for love yet. It's ok... They've got all the time in the world for that. :nod:

Don't forget Rainbow Blitz!

I know he isn't an actual character in the series but apparently some people ship them. Including me.

Dashie is a tomboy but she's still a girl. And she still loves being the center of attention. This is a really cute deviation. Here's how I think the conversation might go in this scene.

Rainbow Dash Blink Icon : Heyyyyy, I could get used to this. Having all this attention makes me feel so--no, I can't say it. I won't say it. Get a hold of yourself, Rainbow Dash, you don't swoon for anypony. (sighs, feels very feminine) But I feel so...

Fancy Pants: You have permission to say it, my dear lady.

Rainbow Dash Blink Icon: Squeeee... I feel so... GIRLY! AND I LOVE IT!!! EEEEEEEEE! TWENTY PERCENT COOLER!!! Awesome rainbow dash

Big Mac: Eeyup.

Clapping Pony Icon - Soarin - Wonderbolt Uniform : Duuuuude, girl. Duuuuuude!

rainbow dash my little pony mlp brony : Excuse me for a moment, boys. I feel a need to throw up. (walks to side to hurl)

Clapping Pony Icon - Soarin - Wonderbolt Uniform: Uh, ya think we kinda, ya know, overdid it?

Big Mac: Nnnnnnope.

Fancy Pants: Feelings of appreciation over being courted in this chivalrous manner are rare to Miss Rainbow Dash, and she has yet to learn how to process such wonderful feelings.

Clapping Pony Icon - Soarin - Wonderbolt Uniform: Uh, translation--she's not used to this?

Fancy Pants: Precisely, my windsurfing friend.

Big Mac: Eeyup.

Actually, Hasbro told everyone that she was a lesbian character to support gay rights. Look it up ._.

I actually did read a story with Rainbow Dash having a kiddy crush on Shining. I think it was Rainbooms and Royalty. Sure, the story is about Celestia and Rainbow but it says that RD met him and fell in love or something
GammaEradon Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Heh, I wrote 'Rainbooms and Royalty'

Oh. Lol. *Squee*

Can I just say, that fanfic was AWESOME!!!!! Also, Dashie is a princess now! Yay!

Clearly Rainbow Dash is pansexual. The colors in her mane are symbolic of all the different genders she can like! jk XD

An interesting idea. The Tomboyish Rainbow Dash getting the attention of all the best stallions... someone needs to do a fanfic of this.
AndytheB-Artist Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist
Rainbow Dash is shipped mostly to the other members of the Mane Six. How about I analyse who's best. Perhaps I'm not the best person for the job since I only have general knowledge about relationships, but here we go anyway.

DashXApplejack: This is definitely a pairing that has a good chance at working. I believe that people who are most like each other have the best chance of staying together (although they should definitely have some small differences). They're both competitive and athletic. The main issue to be worked out here is whether or not Applejack's workaholic attitude will conflict too much with Rainbow Dash's slacker lifestyle.

DashXRarity: I don't think this'll work. There's a reason Rainbow Dash is shipped to Rarity less than any other member of the Mane Six, because she doesn't like Rarity's fixation with fashion. Also, I suspect she overdosed on fashion because her mother was likely G3 Rainbow Dash. [link]

DashXFluttershy: I honestly can't think of any reason to pair them besides them being good friends earlier in life. I just don't think a marriage between a nature lover with occasional angry outbursts, and a brash tomboy would work.

DashXPinkie Pie: At first, you'd think "of course it'll work, they prank other ponies". Of course, the biggest obstacle is Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie operate at two totally different speeds in life. I think Rainbow Dash would become exhausted from Pinkie Pie's perpetual sugar high.

DashXTwilight Sparkle: This one looks better. At the very least, they both like books now and neither has any major personality points which is the exact opposite of her partner. However, I can't think of any other reasons (besides maybe, being the two most shipped female ponies, they want to shut up the shippers).

Well, that's what I can think of. If you can think of any better ponies to marry Rainbow Dash, let me know.

Shining Armor? What are YOU doing here? Aren't you supposed to be married?!
