I asked a little while back which of two poses would work well for the banner, and this was the pose chosen; however when all was said and done I realize I could have both poses in and still have at least 50% of the base of the banner for text. Anyway for the pose people like more, I made it a small standalone pic with an added background (the actual banner background is transparent so the background color for the site can be seen).
Even though this is to celebrate February and by proxy its main theme of Valentine's Day; I don't see this as a ship pic or them as a ship couple. Instead I see Rarity caring for him deeply as a friend, and while she is aware of his crush on her and does not feel the same way, she can still always be there for him whenever he needs a shoulder to cry on or whatever. She is generosity after all.
