Not a whole lot of you will agree with me. You guys may have seen the things I’ve done with this orange stallion, things I enjoyed doing. I didn’t step in to ruffle everyone’s opinion about him. They are yours to keep. But why do I enjoy developing the Flash Sentrycharacter? Especially with the pairing up to our dear Twilight?
It’s quite simple.
Some of you didn’t like Shining Armor when he first made his sudden appearance back at the end of the second season. But I saw promise in the big brother character and I spent post-season 2 developing him as the best BBBFF he could be through fanart. There wasn’t a lot of changed perceptions from this. After all, the show did stuff with Twilight, Cadance and Shining Armor canonically.
Naturally, we are an angry bunch, and a few of us didn’t appreciate Flash Sentry’s non-appearance all that much. But I saw the blank slate as an opportunity, and like the folly of some relationships, I felt I could change him.
I did many things with that. I have a bunch of FlashxTwilight art, I wrote a fan-scriptand recently put this little tike from “Twilight Time” (also “Pinkie Pride”) together with Flash Sentry as his little brother.
And all of this appears to have worked. I’ve received plenty of notes from folks saying how they now like the Flash Sentry character developed through my art and head-canon. There’s also a little dA contest going on for art featuring the pair.
But, of course, until Hasbro does anything to his character, pony or humanoid, canon is still canon. The same thing as Shining Armor was. Flash sentry is so much of a background character still, nothing more than a one-time fling and a cameo appearance. That’s where all the negative opinions are valid. (Until Season 4 ends and that new EQG movie is out, oh ho.)
I’m not saying you have to like the guy. If it doesn’t work out with you, fine. But hey, I gave him a chance, and maybe you can too.
Addendum - My Head-Canon With Flash Sentry. Feel free to pick it up!
