"My Little Pony" is owned by Hasbro and the Hub,
"MLP: Friendship is Magic" is created by Lauren Faust.
Get him Spike! But don't hurt Spike! Rip him apart Spike! Oh no! Spike bit Spike!
I'm confused which Spike am I rooting for again? XD
"Enough with the hot air, idiot!"
"Twilight! Rarity! Recognize-"
"I said shut up already! Yeah, I often feel starved for attention and recognition for what I do. I want them to truly acknowledge me as an equal and not just as some office hardware piece. You're not some mind-shattering, life changing revelation! I'm not greedy because I'm a dragon, I feel greed because I want something, someone, anything or anyone to be there for me! Because I want to fit in! Because I am you and you are me..."
I love seeing characters standing up to their inner demons / weaknesses

As for jealousy that more stems from from his biggest fault, insecurity. His greatest fear is being rejected so when he's ignored for somebody like Owlowicious for long periods that triggers his insecurity and leads to intense feelings of jealousy.
That's very true about his dragon hoarding instincts since those are just natural born instincts for dragons, like Squirrels feel the need to gather and hoard or humans to socialize. But he's never displayed them until Secret of my Excess as Twilight says its unusual he's so grabby there. That is a good way of describing his attraction to Rarity beyond a simple crush, especially after his dragon instincts were triggered and after Rarity's encounter with Discord since she knows what its like to lose control to avarice. I would really like an episode were Spike's insecurities about his dragon side defining him are explored and where he realizes those don't define his real self. They did that in Dragon Quest which was a good nurture over nature augment but something more like this picture would really go a long way.
