Anti Elusity by StarryOak Anti Elusity by StarryOak
Used this as a base: [link]

I am against all Genderswap X Their counterpart. I will be making separate ones, so expect more.

On all pairings: Sorry, but its just really stupid. It's not the selfcest, its the fact they're exactly the same character. While they would get along well, they have a high chance of getting sick of eachother, because they would think exactly alike, act exactly alike, and would get sick of the constant similarity of their lifestyle. Beyond that, there isn't any chance for growth of character. They would settle in to the same exact patterns as before, learning nothing from their time together. Even pairings like Fluttermac, with their high similarity, they are at least different characters. They've had different lives and experiences, they can settle into a new lifestyle, and grow as characters. And from a foal standpoint, even if you discount deformities due to the incest aspect, they're just clones of their parents, And if you take into account their parents or siblings genetics, you've still only got a limited set of colours, because theyre, again, just the same characters, just as the opposite sex.

On Elusity: Elusity is definitely the one that makes the most sense out of all of them. Rarity and Elusive are both narcissistic ponies, and probably would be attracted to eachother, and there's no question about that. But think about the way they act, Elusive would be a gentlecolt, and Rarity would be demanding of such a thing, but in the end, the push and pull would end up making them angry at eachother, Elusive would eventually get sick of being nice and gentlecoltly, as even he would eventually wear down, and Rarity would be disappointed that he isn't her dream stallion. If that doesn't happen, their compulsions would interfere with eachother, as eachothers "organized chaos" would drive eachother mad, because both of them would see it as not their "organized chaos" but mess. And if they got over that, they would just settle down and be exactly the same, both need somepony to show them that even if their dreams don't match reality, sometimes reality is good enough. They've both had the same experiences, they've both been through all the same character developement, and that makes for no more character developement, unless they run into those problems, which would probably split them apart.

BE RESPECTFUL WITH COMMENTS, PLEASE. Making a case in favor of this is different than "OMG YOU SUCK FOR BEING AGAINST THIS".

I actually thought that the RarityXElusive romance as well as the FluttershyXButterscotch romance was genuinely sweet, but I can kinda see where you're coming from. And, weren't the 2 Applejacks kinda crushing on Dash and Bliz (The opposite of the genders they are)?

To me, pairing a character with someone that is literally the opposite gender version of themselves is just the weakest way to ship a couple.

Can I just...marry you for making this. I mean, all ships have a special meaning to someone, but this one just isn't one that I'm a fan of. It's kinda creepy, and quite frankly overused in the fandom.

If the story didn't have shipping in it at all (kinda like the show) it would've seemed better, but it's not a bad story. I guess the sparity inside me wishes that they would draw more ElusivexBarb pictures. Mainly because it's the only ship that the show really has going, and it's someone different than themselves.

I agree with you about that. But I can see it, if he grows slightly older, rather than be with her in the present time when he's still too young. Because otherwise...it is kinda creepy.

But hey, it's alright if you're still not a fan. Like I said, there are different ships, that are special to everyone.

I have such a great amount of respect for this comment.
I myself don't really like Sparity. Or Soarifire. Or Applemac. But that's my opinion only. If someone else likes any of those pairings, I don't scream and bash them.

Haha, thanks. :)

I agree, we all can't agree on every ship.  Even though I'm not an Elusity fan, I respect someone else's opinion if they do like it.  We all need to remember that each ship is special to someone, even if we may not like it either.

I'm against genderswap too, but how unfortunate I have a genderswap folder and there is a member who hs genderswap art and i have to put up with her artwork and I don't want to loose a group member if I have to kick her out and delete that genderswap folder I made. You go to my group you'll see rules I made that are very clear on what I don't like around here.

I could defiantly see the two having a short fling, but growing tired of it after awhile. They would have the most mature breakup out of the selfcest parings though.

indeed the romance between the characters make it super akward also i seen stories where they would switch the pairings like putting twilight with bubble berry having elusive be with fluttershy or even applejack(female) going with rainbow blitz that still sickens me

even more so because i hate Main 6 pairings with each other

THANKS for this! I've never liked Original x Genderswap parings.
I do think, for example, that Elusive x Fluttershy is adorable and so on, but Elusive x Rarity in this case is just... boring.

I will preface my comment with the question: why make 'anti-anything' stamps? Do you really hate something so much that everyone visiting your page needs to absolutely know it? Because personally, if I do not like something, I can press that little 'x' in the corner. So before I even get to the subject... I am confused as to why this is necessary.

On the subject: while I can see the 'logical' argument of it... who said that shipping fictional characters is (or needs to be) logical to begin with? In this case, I could see them being attracted to each other because of their love of same things - and being multidimensional characters, they would also grow a tolerance to the little things that in your opinion would 'drive them apart.' At least, I would like to think so.

But this of course is dependant just how exactly 'same' do you imagine a r63 version to be. I would imagine they do have some differences that growing up as different gender. Of course they'd be identical to the point of annoyance if you assume they would always do same decision to every single problem they encounter.

Because I have opinions and I like discussing them. They do nothing if I don't discuss them
