First of all, to the SQ shippers who witnessed the disagreement I had with one or two of your shipmates, I wanted to apologize. I sometimes forget that the people I talk to online are human beings with human emotions and I did go off on a tangent. It was very out of line for me to do that and I’m…
Hmm, the “majority” of the fandom would be happy with a token queer played by a recurring character who regardless of how “busy” they are will not be regulars because the cast is already huge.
Sorry, but we’ve been teased with 2 LEAD actresses for 3 seasons. This isn’t the Glee fandom where people will be happy with two minutes of Brittana as opposed to seasons of canon Faberry. There are plenty of other women around that Hook can moon after: Tinkerbell, Ariel, Snow, Zelena, etc.
Also, to be clear, the entire media except Lily has been drooling over Hook to the point many don’t want him around at all, which isn’t helpful to Hook fans at all. Lily’s reviews have been a light in the darkness for many of us & your insults do not help your argument at all.
This post is a reaction to this reply to my previous post, talking about Swan Queen endgame and the current storylines of CS and OQ. Cropping the reaction left by stefandlenaadamsfoster, the feedback was:
“The main problem that I have with all of this is that on most shows where this dynamic is at play, the general audience is completely aware of what’s going on. It’s the right time to reveal that one of them likes girls, at least some of the time. As soon as you acknowledge that one of them is open to dating girls, a lot of the crackship stuff might be lessened.”
I wanted to reply to this because all of this is so true, yet so completely impossible that it becomes a very complicated mess. This is going to be a queer thing, so if you are not in the mood for talk about how the world is a sad, sad, place for queer representation, I suggest you skip this one. Happy ending implied, though!
Speaking for myself, I would be perfectly willing to give them time if they would stop throwing men at our girls. The fact that they repeatedly say look, she’s not gay, she has a ton of men falling for her, makes me as a viewer incredibly offended and quit watching. What’s even worse is that if any of the heterosexual pairings take off, the network wouldn’t ever take the risk of Swan Queen.
No matter how many men are thrown their way, I will never buy them as bisexual because they read so heavily as closet cases, and yes, if you look, there are indications of their interest in women in the first 3 seasons beyond just each other, but it’s also clear they are terrified to act on it & are trying to play straight & it hurts to watch.
