Around two nights ago, I started rewatching some old episodes of Azumanga Daioh
- I haven't watched the show since my sophmore year in High School, so imagine my surprise at finding a character in the show who pretty much encapsulated my headcanon for Silver Spoon.
For those of you who are unaware, I happen to have something of an elaborate headcanon for Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon.
I won't go into too much detail, but I imagine Silver is actually a nice pony who just so happens to have latched onto a mean one and is simply going along with Diamond's bullying to get along with Diamond.* But like most MLP headcanons, there's more - oh so much more.
Silver is not only best friends with Diamond Tiara, but head over heels in love with her to an obsessive level. Diamond, on the other hand, is pretty meh
about Silver Spoon: Diamond likes Silver's unwavering loyalty, but doesn't really care for her all that much otherwise and only sort of tolerates her. Of course, Diamond is aware of Silver Spoon's feelings for her on some
level and will readily manipulate them the second Silver Spoon displays any sort of insubordination.**
With all that out of the way - enjoy this poster! I think this screenshot from Twilight Time
pretty much sums up my headcanon for Silver Spoon.
*Lauren Faust herself has confirmed this in a Twitter post.
**Because - let's be honest - Diamond seems like just the sort of pony who would do this. Azumanga Daioh
