Her Excellency Tara Strong, Head of Trolldom, Leader of the Trolls, and Founder of the Trollish Empire?

Most Serene and August Tara Strong, Crowned by Luna, Great and Pacific Empress, Governing the Trollish Empire?
Pretty sure she'd be God-Queen Tara Strong, Chosen of Discord, Prophet of Chaos and Lady of Joyous Trolling.

Twilight and Pinkie make the "Dexter's Lab" pair where you have the bookish genius confounded by a bright but almost alien intellect.

Then why Fluttershy and Dash? They don't seem similar enough for their differences to have much weight. I theorize that trying to answer this has lead to the path of least resistance for the community: Shipping.
They were both pushed hard in their youth. They both went to flight school. They both failed. They reacted very differently.
