Im sure most everybody in the HTF fandom knows about the ever so popular ship FlippyxFlaky. Fanart, AMVs, and Fanfics of the two are the most commonly seen thing in the fandom.  As some people may already know I am one of the few people who is actually anti the couple. Im known for my anti pics and my Anti FlippyxFlaky AMV on Youtube. I have been told  that this ship has been hinted many times in the show. I disagree. So these are my responses to some common beliefs of FlippyxFlaky fans. Ive been thinking about writing this thing for a while so I think it should be decent enough to read. Hope you enjoy it Anti FlippyxFlaky people.
*and just as a note, I think the topic of Flaky's gender is very interesting  but I am just going to refer to Flaky as a female in this writing because that is how the majority of FlippyxFlaky fans see Flaky*

Here are some objections to some common FlippyxFlaky "proofs" that fans have told me.

1.  Flaky's screams snap Flippy out of his flip out! He loves her. [From Double Whammy part 1]
Well this one has always annoyed me. Lets take a look at other episodes shall we? In "This Is Your Knife" Flippy threw Flaky into a campfire and Flaky's screams were heard. But Flippy didn't snap out then. He actually laughed  as she burned to death and even roasted a marshmallow over her. Looking at the episodes with Flippy, the times he snaps out are varied and are diffrent in each one. He can even manage to snap himself out at times. I think the reason the writers chose Flaky for this scene is because she was the only other female around (Lammy wasn't introduced untill later) and as in most cartoons, female screams are much more alarming and noticeable than male screams.

2. Flaky threw Flippy his birthday party! That has to be love! She did it just for him! [From Party Animal]
Okay, I have never understood this "theory". Where the CRAP did it EVER say in the episode that Flaky was the one who planned Flippy's birthday party!? Yes she made the cake. But if people payed attention to other parts, the party looked much more like a group effort then something Flaky planned all by herself. Sniffles put together the apple barrel, Cuddles, The Mole, and Toothy put up the decorations, and Nutty tried to help out with the punch. The only reason Flaky was in the first part of the episode was to show her peanut allergry, because her quills were what caused Flippy to flip out in the next part of the episode. And considering Flaky's shyness and social awkwarkness, I highly doubt that planning a party for an army veteran was her idea.

3. Flippy went and killed Sniffles even though Flaky was right there! [from Party Animal]
I have two possible reasons for this. First of all, Flaky looks pretty creepy and burised with her allergry reaction does she not? My first theory is that Flaky's allergry reaction mixed with her normal red color, Evil Flippy could have possibly thought she was dead and just didnt bother to go kill her. My second one is that, well,  Evil Flippy likes to be unique with his kills right? Sniffles was putting up a fight by trying to hide, so Evil Flippy was probably more intrested in going after Sniffles instead just quickly killing Flaky by popping her. But granted, if Flippy was still flipped out and Flaky and The Mole were still alive, I think that he would have also killed them both.

4. Flippy sat next to Flaky! He has a crush on her! [From This is your Knife]
Okay, are you fans really serious with this? There was one freakin' seat left, of course he sat next to her! Where else would he sit, on the ground??? Using this as proof makes about as much sense as Rebecca Black asking "which seat can I take?" in her Friday song. And dont forget, he also still flipped out, even though Flaky was right next him.

5. Flippy helped Flaky after they crashed! He loves her! [from Without a Hitch]
Really? Lets look at Flippy's character shall we? Flippy is one of the most friendly htfs around. He enjoys doing social things, like going to the movies, or helping at the carnival. So I dont get why fans use this scene as proof. If it was Giggles, or Petunia or heck, even Lumpy, im sure Flippy would have done the same and tried to help. What fans ignore, is that Flaky was horrified when Flippy approached her, and she stabbed him out of self defense.

6. Pop was supposed to be in Flippy's place so he wasn't really was mad at her! [From Happy Trails part 2]
It's true that Pop was replaced by Flippy in this episode. But thats not the point. The point is Mondo Media thought it was weird for Pop to kill Flaky but perfectly normal for Flippy to help kill her. I know that most of the HTF were a little out of character in that scene, but my point is if FlippyxFlaky was ever meant to be cannon or have hints I think Mondo Media would be having Flippy kill her a lot less.

7. Flippy killed Giggles because he dosen't love her, he really loves Flaky! [From On My Mind]
Seriously? First of all Flippy kills EVERYONE when he Flips out. And looking at past episodes he has killed Flaky many times before, usually in painful ways, like strangling her, or throwing her into a blazing campfire. So either Flippy also doesn't love Flaky or this was just a freakout theory made when fans were shocked by this episode.

But the main reason im so pushed away from this ship? The FANS. I have had many fans yell at me, call me "not a true htf fan" post things like "This is horrible FLIPPY X FLAKY 4EVERRR everybody Knows that they R a cupple!" Or "Why would you like this shitty pair? Its FLIPPY X FLAKY DUMBASS!!11!!1!" And I have also seen many disturbing rape type pictures of the two on Google. im not talking about BDSM but actual r-a-p-e with Flaky in tears, Evil Flippy laughing, just kind of disturbing to me.

So those were some of my theories and if you read all of them then I would like to say thanks. And I would also like to say I know not all FlippyxFlaky fans are horible n00bs, I dont care if someone supports them, its just the ones that shove it in my face that bother me. And im not totally against it either, like on my htf bases I don't say "Can't be used for FlippyxFlaky" Im fine with it as long as the fans dont go crazy and scream at me.

Again these were my theories and if you also dislike FlippyxFlaky then tell me what you think. : P
Yup, this is something ive been wanting to post for a while now so here it is!

I know im gonna get hate comments, but I could really care less. Im sick of all these "proofs" and "Facts" and insults being thrown at me.

And also, im not saying all FlippyxFlaky fans are n00bs. I have some watchers who like it and I dont treat them any diffrently. Its only when the fans start to yell at ME for not supporting the couple is when I get pissed off.
I just think others who dislike the pair will find this interesting, I have some friends who are also Anti-FlippyxFlaky so they might want to see it.

So tell me what you think about my responses to each "fact" given. If I hear anymore interesting ones, I might add them.

I had fun typing this. XD

((Ignore me if you don't want to read all of this. I write alot))

I wouldn't really call myself a hardcore shipper of them, I do kind of think of it really cute and stuff, though I really don't think the ship could happen cannonly. If you look on the wikia, it states that Flippy is on Flaky's list of phobias. I don't think this means she will immediately leave the area once Flippy is in it because she never done on the show before (Proof: Watch By The Seat of Your Pants), I guess she gets extremely paranoid once interacting and being near him so much, it gives her enough confidence to INTENTIONALLY HURT AND/OR KILL HIM. The proof listed here (By the fans not you) is BS. Just because he acts a certain way around her doesn't mean he loves her, I am pretty sure he sees her more as a close friend. There isn't any TRUE and OBVIOUS signs of Flippy liking Flaky and vice versa, like in some episodes with Cuddles and Giggles together and Petunia and Handy. And if he DID like her and went on a date with her, it would most likely end up the same with Giggles. Fliqpy will not leave her alone just because Flippy and Flaky are dating or because he loves her. He will kill her like everyone else; without any mercy. I am pretty sure when he is flipped out, he feels no emotions or thoughts about anyone except to kill them. Also about the Fliqpy not killing Flaky or The Mole at the Birthday Party. On the wikia, it says despite him a sadistic merciless bloodthirsty killer when flipped out, he still lives up to some sort of honor code that soldiers have to follow that forbids him from killing someone that is "too vulnerable". To make this make more sense, it means if the individual still has the ability to defend themselves, like either being able to fight back or move without any disabilities or any problems, he will still kill them. Which was why he ignored Flaky, despite her being the most noticeable thing in the room. This is also why he has never killed Cub, The Mole, or Cro-Marmot directly for the same thing.

But overall, the ship is pretty adorable to me and I still kinda like it, Im just not one who shoves it in people's faces and can confirm that it will most likely never happen in canon. But then again that movie is coming out soon so who knows?

Agreed, it's true cause all I see is FlippyxFlaky everyday when I just type in "Flippy". o3o I want to draw Flippy sometimes, but I get this ship. The computer is pushing it in my face. ;-; I gotta say, I only ship Flippy with... Mime, Evil Flippy, some fangirls of his XD, and Splendid. Good topic bro, I'm so adding it to my fav's and watching. :3

DocAce93 Featured By Owner May 31, 2015
I love the pairing to death, but I did enjoy this writing! It's definitely a great analysis on why it's not a probable pairing. I think many just ignore them or see it differently, which by all means, their choice. I see some of the subtle hints that could make them a pairing and like to expand on that. Not obvious, of course, but something to explore with the imagination. But in all case, what the writers and animators create, we should enjoy for what it is. But we should also remember to keep our imaginations open, like with what you've done. But I do hate when people go overboard as well! Again, thank you for an excellent read, and keep up the good work!

You know what? I am a fan of FlippyXFlaky but your right because what you said is true! there's not a lot of real proof about them being in love with each other and I bet they are just good friends and I still want to know how this couple became so damn popular and why I am a big fan of this! but I don't think I will be a good fan for long because I am starting to think that if they are a couple ( which they are not a real couple unless the cartoon actually make a episode about it ) it would never work out mostly cause of Fliqpy but for other things too so I am slowly liking this couple less and less and I think I won't care as much as I did soon so I have to say you are right.

tienes toda la razon el flippy x flaky es horrible, si flaky le teme a flippy para que estar con alguien que ni le interesa , pero aveces pienso que flaky es hombre como cuando era dia de chicas para jugar pocker y aparecio flaky las chicas se sorprendieron y dejaron que juegue con ellas entonces ay me parecio extraño, pero me agrado que este al lado de lammy y eso , por mi prefiero lammy x flaky y si como dicen es mujer prefiero flaky x disco bear :D ya que buenos puntos de vistas el flaky y flippy nunca devio existir :)

I agree with this. you have given evidence that the pairing doesn't work well. In my other hand though, fantasies are fantasizes. They're what people wish would happen, not what is really going on. (Someone is disappointed.) The thing is- Why get all upset about someone else's fandom when you have your own?! Well, I agree with the reasoning, but see nothing wrong with imagining something cute.:P rvmp

I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one who doesn't ship FlippyxFlaky and honestly because of this ship and people going all crazy about it I have developed a disliking for both of them, which is a shame because HTF is one of my favourite shows and I really liked the both of them :(

I agree ith this 100 percent.
tbh at first i didnt rly care about all the fxf crap, but after so many times of searching up htf fxf pops up oit of no where and it drives me INSANE AND IM JUST SUCK OF IT.
i like to have varieties of things and this hogs everything.
Personaly im a yaoi fan and support fxs and i cant ebjoy that ethire because tjeres always going to be sone stupid fxf fan who says bullshit like: omg flippy is not gay! or he belongs to flaky.It pissis me off and im sick of it, If you dont like it WHY THE HELL DO YOU TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK AT THIS AND HATE ON IT? noone is forcing you to do so.
