Small little rant here actually, so sorry ahead of time.

But holy moly I get so irritated with shipping sometimes. Because I play Derpy and I do a series with Doctor Whooves and Derpy, I get the brunt of this quite often.
Now, I'm all for shipping Doctor and Derpy. It's my favorite pony ship. But good GOD does everyone have to be so assholishly RABID about it?! It's really freaking me out. If I put the Doctor with ANY other pony at ANY point, even if it's NOT a ship, people throw a giant temper tantrum "NOOOOO IT HAS TO BE DERPY THIS IS STUPID DOCTORxDERPY FOREVERRR"

It's annoying and extremely rude, okay? I cater to the shippers a lot. I have a few videos, images, and series which ship the two blatantly, such as the Derpy Love Story dub and Lovestruck Derpy. I love the ship but I also am open to other ships and can even enjoy them if they have logic behind them.

To be honest, I just like shipping the Doctor with all sorts of things. I like to play around. Understand that he's a character who has been in multiple different relationships, been married on multiple occasions (by accident and by choice) and he's got a lot of open ground and a lot of life in him. His companions can never stay forever, and neither can his spouses. He moves on, always, or they move away or get hurt. So people who ship him with Derpy... Are essentially setting the two up for inevitable tragedy. As he's said in show, "You can spend the rest of your life with me, but I can't spend the rest of mine with you."

So... Yeah... Just...
Stop being jerks about your headcanon ships. Please.

And don't harass other people just because they might not agree with it, either. Poor Doctor Whooves Adventures gets a lot of flack for having the Doctor take Twilight as a companion, and they havn't had any romantic implications at all. It's not fair and it's not right.

I personally prefer the Doctor with Twilight Sparkle, simply because he's the best choice for her. ^.^ Doctor Whooves Adventures and your Discord Whooves blog got me shipping them :)

I like the Doctor and Derpy ship, but seeing just how common it is, drives me to ship the Doc with others, my current favorite is Doctor and Vinyl, as seriously, the DJ pony of Equestria with the Time Lord of Gallifrey. It makes me think that they would have similar chemistry as 10 and Donna. Except with a bit of romance down the line.

Exactly what you said! I hate it when people say 'No, he'll only ever love and be with Derpy/otherpony!'
Most of the time, I just look at them and say 'Have you even WATCHED Doctor Who?!' Because your quote of Series 2 (10th Doctor/David Tennant Era) is spot on - he loves every single one of his companions, but each in a different way and for a different reason.

People who think he'll only ever love one individual are wrong; the Doctor himself has admitted that it's only too easy to fall in love (why he didn't want Martha onboard after Rose; because he could tell what was going to happen), and also, the Doctor isn't really very good with his emotional side - when he gets emotional, usually something gets destroyed (say, a planet?).

I agree wholeheartedly with your opinion! *waves Sonic Screwdriver in agreement*

Yeah... kinda sad that more often than not, people consider shipping "serious business", and is often the bait for... arguments.

In fact, any pairing will more often than not create some flame. I'm sure even the Doctor/Derpy pairing spouts similar argument.

Speaking as a fanfic reader, I personally don't mind any shipping so long as the story is well written. I'm personally fond of Twilight/Doctor pairing (it being the first pairing I've encountered), yet I've read stories where it was just... badly written.

But I agree, people should really calm down in this matter. People have differing opinions and one has to learn to accept that.

Personally, I think the 'reason' behind the derpyxdoctor craze is the interaction shown in the series. You see those two together a lot. but never Twilight and the Doctor. Then the shipping started, and it would appear that some people chose himxtwi, himxderpy, himx random-stallion, himx someothermane6member. Then most people chose him and Derpy to be their otp

I prefer DoctorxDerpy but I won't complain if he is paired with another character. Besides, all it is, is another persons imagination of love between two made-up characters. That's it.
