Equestria Daily Super Simple Story Archive Graphs by anarchemitis Equestria Daily Super Simple Story Archive Graphs by anarchemitis
As seen on EqD [link]

The genre which has the fewest 6-stars is Grimdark
The most common combination of exactly two genres is Sad and Normal.
On average, the highest rated genre is Normal. On average, the lowest rated genre is Random.

All of these graphs were obsolete within 3 hours of the inititial information gathering. :icontwilightsparkleplz:
At the time, there were 1,949 total tagged stories on the Archive.

I almost made a graph of "Most tagged combinations of "Shipping + Character X + Character Y" but I didn't.
I gathered the raw info for such a graph, but it didn't make it on because I couldn't think of an efficient way to either convey a 104 bar bar-graph, or a stacked 3D graph that I'd be able to get done before Wednesday.
Here's the data anyways for the 20 most popular "Shipping + Character X + Character Y".
PinkieDash - 124
TwiDash - 124
AppleDash - 123
FlutterDash - 114
RaritySparkle - 111
RariJack - 109
TwiJack- 108
FlutterSparkle - 108
PinkieSparkle- 107
RariDash - 106
FlutterJack - 103
RariShy - 102
ApplePie - 100
FlutterPie- 100
Rarity/Pinkie- 97
Twilestia - 36
TwLuna - 36
CelxLun - 30
TwilightxOC - 28
AJxOC - 27

Percentage of X Character stories are also tagged with Shipping (25 stories of Character or more)

55% Big Macintosh
28% Rainbow Dash
26% TG&P Trixie
25.5% Applejack
24% Spike
24% Fluttershy
24% Rarity
23% Twilight Sparkle
22% Pinkie Pie
21% "Other"
20% Princess Luna

Clearly we need more sci-fi stories.

Though I have slammed Justin Bieber, The Twilight Saga, and most of the Disney Princesses for oversimplifying love, I'd like to emphasize that it's that they're of a low quality that is the reason why I slam them for it. I think I can like a romantic story, the good ones (Beauty and the Beast for instance). I bring this up because for a show about Friendship, there seem to be a lot of romantic stories.

That said, this list, and a previous list don't seem to match. [link] According to that list, it was actually rare for Pinkie Pie to be shipped to Rarity, yet here all 15 different possible combinations for the Mane Six are far and away the most shipped couples. What's going on here?

While we're at it, is there a parody story about The Mane Six all literally falling in love with each other and having a six-way?
KiwiTypo Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist Someone took the time to DO this?! MATH and PONIES?!!!?!!

Ok, I was wrong when I said it before.... NOW ive seen everything!!

It consisted of using a graph maker and the only math was either basic adding or making percentages.
Percentages can be made by dividing the sub-group by the total.
eg: 855 Twilight Sparkle fics divided by 1949 total fics equals percentage of Fics have Twilight in them.

in other words, 0.438/1.0, or 43.8/100
Yes I do realize that me using this as an example highlights an inaccuracy. Sue me

What graph maker?
anarchemitis Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012
Something I googled, wasn't anything fancy.

Well, my point still stands. See, I hate math, Love ponies, and combining the two just seems weird for me. But anyway, its still freakin' awesome you took the time to do this at all :D

How can you hate math? Math is nearly everything and everywhere (not my philosophy though)
