>>98164260>Was this a big ship?
That really depends on what you mean by "popular," there was a continuous thread for Mabifica running on /u/ for years while the show was on, and if you Google Mabifica you get thousands and thousands of different pictures, I would bet on there being more overall than for Padippica:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpG3_7Fuyrc&list=PLrATgOjYtd_FzXPjwHGBCCnpOE8h3EsxU
The people who post about the show on this particular board just aren't /u/fags. I think Mabifica is the second most popular ship on AO3, too. But I want to say it doesn't show up on Google trends so people didn't Google that specific ship name much for whatever reason despite there being a lot of content.
Overall for popularity and content though Pinecest and Billdip blow all the other ships out of the water though. This can't even be put on tumblr since tumblr had a big moral panic about those ships and because it's true in other countries fandoms for GF. The exception being Westboos where Mabill dominated for some reason. Just looking on here makes Padippica and Wendip seem more popular though there wasn't all that much content in art or stories for those ships compared to some of the others. Though I think /gfg/ did start out with a lot of incestfags which was true for the rest of the fandom too.
