Okay I know this is something people are gonna get upset about, but... why? Why in the holy heck did they decide Big Macintosh would date Sugar Belle? Why are they having them hold hooves in the intro now? It makes no sense!

even more important is the fact that they went to the schoolyard to be somewhere romantic.

I think about 80% of all the people I've met with college level education married someone they had sex with in college. No, what doesn't make sense is why they paired those two in particular together, why so suddenly, and why they're promoting it so much.

As completely nonsensical and out of the blue it is, at least it isn't his own cousin...

What's not to like about sugarmac?

They both work hard and have good hearts. I love this ship and i'm curious why you don't like it.

Besides, in the next episodes he's going to panic about her dumping him when she finds out he's a huge closet crossdresser.

What's nonsensical about it? You could say that with no matter who you pair him with.

This episode was best from all the leaks IMO.

muh cheerimac, muh fluttermac'
don't worry OP everyone knows Big Mac is one of the only very few stallions in Equestria and he's smashing ALL of the horse puss

>>36828661
Then maybe just wantonly pairing him with someone instead of developing a connection is what's nonsensical?

>>36828662
Oh, I thought everyone kinda hated it.

No, it's the only reasonable thing to do with a secondary character appearing only once in a blue moon.

The only reasonable thing? What makes you say that?

Slowly building a relationship only works when you have the focus on the same character over several episodes. It would work with any of the main six but not with a guy showing up twice per season.

So they did the reasonable thing, showing the proper beginning of their relationship and now following it up. That works well.

I like sugarmac. I just don't understand it. They both work hard in different places, in different occupations. It's nice that they got together against the odds, but none of how it happened was ever shown. And there were plenty of other hard working ponies with good hearts. It just came out of the blue.

>>36828662

...it had a ponified Justin Bieber in it. You just admitted to liking Justin Bieber.

>>36828663

Pff, like he could ever compete with Flash "Smashmaster" Sentry.

>>36828668

Orrrr they could've had fans absolutely going ballistic when someone saw him bump into Sugar Belle and get all blushy in the background for a few seconds in S7E1 when they all actually had a reason to be together, and then everything would make sense.

Now that would sound forced and out of the blue to me.

>>36828671

So, you agree with me that an episode suddenly pairing them together is forced and out of the blue. But you disagree that randomly meeting each other at an award ceremony is not forced and out of the blue, claiming that both are out of the blue.

Fair enough. I'd personally have been happy with even a little foreshadowing in the background. Truth be told, I'm not unhappy even now. I just don't really understand why they did it at all. I'd have just left it ambiguous who he would go for, left him an eligible bachelor, or use one of the existing pairings I already introduced. Because that would make people happy, which would make them want to watch the show.

OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828679

I don't particularly like Cheerimac, but that was at least the kind of setup one would reasonably expect if they're going that way. An episode of initiation, one or two teasing moments here and there, and an episode or fraction of one quite some time later about them getting together (which Sugar's episode could have been). I'm fine with that having been nothing meaningful between them, but then going ahead and plopping him together with someone with zero prior interaction just seems odd when he already got partway before. If anything you'd expect more out of a legit relationship than the setup he previously got with Cheerilee.

No, I just affirmed that no matter who you'd pair him with and at what point you could always call it "out of the blue".

Well sure, but you'd be lying. I however couldn't call it out of the blue, if they foreshadowed it by having them meet in the background in episode 1. They didn't, so it was out of nowhere. Cheerimac, they had a reason to know each other. Marblemac actually showed them meeting for the first time. Sugarmac just... jumped straight into obsessive infatuation. (And where was Party Favor, the whole episode?)

>>36828679

It's true, there was plenty of potential for Cheerilee, all the way back to their flirting back in season 1. She's certainly attracted to Big Mac. Really, I like Sugarmac better than Cheerimac (and I know I'm a horrible person for this) because it helps me identify more with Cheerilee, since it lets artists explore the possibility that she can't get a date to save her life.
