Bon Bon's relatively grounded nature appeals to a lot of ponies looking for companionship. She finds herself playing the part of the listener or the "straight mare" a lot of the time, but she doesn't mind—it's just in her nature to take those roles. (Besides, she likes enthusiastic company.) She's a little slow to attach with most ponies, but once Bon Bon's really started bonding with a buddy, that Bon bud's been bonded for good. i am so sorry
She doesn't like to think of herself as someone who has enemies, but she could certainly make them. When she's angry she can really go off, and it isn't always directed properly. And it can be really hard to dissuade her when she gets it in her head to hold a grudge.
Bon Bon's a hopeless romantic, emphasis on the "hopeless." Though she dreams of having a Very Special Somepony one day, rather than going out on the town to look, she waits for love to just fall into her hooves. As a result, she's pretty inexperienced... which only makes her long even more. For now, though, she's content to toast a big unhealthy bucket of hayseeds and watch Gone With the Windigo for the eighteenth time. Any harpflanked unicorn mares out there are welcome to join her

Did someone say ENTHUSIATIC COMPANY?!?!?!
Vinyl Scratch here, resident pro at being enthusiastic~ I would try out for lovers, but I don't see Vinyl fitting or going for anything like that. Friends though? Vinyl loves friends, whaddya say? Vinyl usually hangs out in Canterlot, but she is known to visit Ponyville for a rest or to do a small show. She could meet Bon Bon like that, there's also the fact that nightmare night is coming up and you can bet Vinyl never misses a chance to catch a glimpse of Luna OR have some fun, so she'll be there for sure. Candy maker? Nightmare Night? Sounds like a great friend to make, timely too.
Totally down for it! Bon's got a soft spot for fun-loving ponies (probably some kind of vicariousness thing), so Vinyl totally suits that. She does pop up in Canterlot every so often, so even if they meet in Ponyville they could run into each other there down the road, too.
If Vinyl has a Ponyville show or creeps around the Nightmare Night celebrations, Bon could be around there too, since music and candy and parties all go great together this time of year. They'd probably strike up a conversation pretty naturally, being social mares, or if Vinyl was planning something for a future show she could notice how those weird glowy candies seem to come from this one place. Either way I can see them hitting it off!
Mignon would be a good match for bon bon I think. Whether for lover or friend bon bon makes candy and Mignon is a all around chef. He makes candy,pastries,breakfast, lunch, dinner. While Mignon is a bit socially at first when you get to know him he becomes much more comfortable which then raises his confidence thus erasing the awkwardness.....most of the time. Also just because he is social awkward sometimes doesn't mean he isn't social. Mignon usually is in Ponyville, but travels all around equestria and beyond exploring new regions for new ingredients and new experiences. Not really sure how they could meet other that by food somehow being involved.
Well, Bon Bon is a lot more... experimental with her craft than Mignon seems, so if they do meet through food, he might be a bit wary of "that mare who made the terrifying singing candy," haha.
Nonetheless, I could see her liking him for his stable way of life, and since they're both slow to warm up, that probably suits the other just fine friendship-wise. Maybe she takes regular meals at his place of work—and the idea of far-off ingredients from foreign lands, of course, would totally capture her interest. They could probably learn a lot from each other!
The Fun Has Been Doubled! is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic moderate-to-advanced forum roleplay. Set after the events of the fifth season, we currently have no overarching plot. Instead, we simply have created the world of Equestria for you as a giant playground to have fun in and to explore the magic of friendship. Canon characters and original characters are available for you to play as, both ponies and non-pony species alike! Just remember that we are account-per-character and we'll be fine!
So why don't you stay for a while, look around, and let us know if we should get a welcome party started for you.
