I prefer the comic version of Shining, gives him more character. Nevertheless, love your art.

    In the comics, Shining Armor was a D&D roleplayer and Candance was just popular. Shining Armor was shy and timid. 
    Here are some references:

    In the comics, he made a huge ordeal about asking her to their 'prom' event.

Well, actually, she was born a pegasus and became an alicorn thanks to Princess Celestia. It never specified when in the novel, and in the comics about their high school life she's already an alicorn.
So we can assume she changed BEFORE high school.

Shining Armor was an awkward geek before dating Cadence, so here we can assume this is possibly when they're already dating.

Or this is just someone's headcanon/art; let's not read too deeply into it. xD

I'm laughing because in the comic he actually hates sports. He sits in the basement playing D&D with his buddies who think he is delusional for trying to go after Cadence.

This makes me want to kill them both. Why isn't Shining Armor beating the ever loving sh** out of some unsuspecting weaker kid.
And why isn't Cadence belittling all the other people in this school?

Come on, you can be popular and not be a dick. I knew a guy back in high school who was the "super popular quarter back" and was also the perfect person, no kidding this guy had all the girls and all the friends and was still the nicest person you will ever meet. That's kind of how i'v always imagined Shining, i just cant see him as the nerd.

Nicest person to those at his level most likely, my experience is people turning a blind eye to wrongdoing because they're popular, which makes that person seemingly perfect.

Try and bring up a recent crime: "they would never do that, that would be problematic" INNOCENT. CASE CLOSED.

Nice blanket statement there, buddy! Where did you go to school to achieve such a dated and stereotypical view of others, a 1980s teen comedy?

That's an appropriate reaction. Got a problem? No. You couldn't have had problems, its impossible.
Its not possible because I refuse to accept it.

And you are handling it sooooo much better than I ever could!/sarcasm

"Herp derp the popular kids at my school were mean to me, so that must mean all popular kids everywhere across space and time are meanies by default!" - not a direct quote, but that was basically the gist of your original comment.

By your logic, if some random black guy stole your wallet, then that must mean ALL black people are thieves!

In case you are too thick skulled to understand what I'm getting at, I'm saying that your shitty experiences at school don't give you an excuse to stereotype a group of people, the overwhelming majority of which probably never met you, let alone did anything to you.

Going to a Costume Party are they? Since Shining is a D&D nerd and I don't think Cadence is on the cheer leading team

Though in that getup it kinda makes him seem more like a jerk, than the nice nerd that he is.
