Great picture! <3 Although I have pretty different opinion on them as you and others. I agree with you made Rarity as Gus and Fluttershy as Mikey! Although Gus is a bit more similar to Fluttershy with their shyness, but the same Mikey too! He's gentle, kind and loves nature and music just like Mikey -they both are the "kind ones" of their groups, so I agree with that decision. BTW, Gus and Rarity are both afraid of dirty, what's their common thing. Gretchen and Twilight -sure thing, but others... Probably I'm the only one, but I don't think TJ is most like Pinkie Pie. Sure, they both are funny, pranksters, social and energetic, but still, the best of character properties has TJ common with Applejack. They both are smart, have sense of justice, leadership skills, are sweet and friendly and they wear hat. TJ isn't so "crazy and childish in such level" like Pinkie. He's smart and leader and doesn't make such a fool of himself like Pinkie. But by me, nobody isn't really similar to Pinkie. And Spinelli, Vince and Rainbow Dash... Yes, Spinelli is definitely most like Rainbow, both are very violent, but in my opinion Vince has more common things with Rainbow than Spinelli, they are athletes, they love to win and hate lose and are self-centered -that all is typical for Vince. Vince doesn't have Applejack's properties (they are only athletes, but that's all). Soo... what about Spinelli and Pinkie Pie then? They don't have real match (only Spinelli with Rainbow, but Rainbow fits Vince better to me -they perfectly fit each other). So I'm going to ship these two together (Spinelli and Pinkie). They both are crazy and funny (in their groups), but both in different ways. xD But in all the ways, amazing picture!!! :3 Sorry if my opinion sounds really weird unlike others, it's just how I feel it.
This is...perfect. You've combined my two most favorite TV shows (In fact, Recess is kinda partially the reason why I got into MLP in the first place, as the mane six's friendship reminded me of the Recess Gang. The other reason being, well, Lauren Faust). In my opinion, I think Rarity is more like Mikey (Both are over-dramatic) and Fluttershy is more like Gus (Shy, sweet), but hey, it's fine the way you like it You did a wonderful job.
before i start...i just want to say...LOVE THE NAME WHOMPY WHOMPERSON!! xD...but anywho I can see why you can see rarity as mikey and fluttershy as gus...but i remember this one episode i think it was "here comes mr. perfect" or something. the "mr. perfect" kid said that mikey was a sweet souled giant, so thus fluttershy . and as for gus...well i always see him as a prim and proper kind of guy just like rarity, AND LO AND BEHOLD! but then again I can see what you mean about the role reversal thing. But anywho, thank you for the accolade ^_^. the next thing I am trying to aim for is "the weekenders" now so that will be a bit challenging but if you have any ideas on what i should do shout it out, kk?
