You have to admit, "snapped her up" is an ominously kidnapper-ish thing to say...

But is it kidnapping if I willingly go along with a mare like cherry Jubilee?

I did this with a character once. NPC was gonna attempt to use Charm on my character, but my character was willing to go with her. She was... confused.

NPC: "No, I didn't cast it yet..." XD

You don't always need magic to create compulsion effects. In fact, if Spud keeps close to the original story line here, that's pretty much what happened.

Between that, Fluttershy's Stare, and other incidents there are quite a few in the series before you get into the outright magic. Of course, where exactly the line is, is muddled by the fact that friendship is magic...
