Guys, sometimes when a fandom explodes with news some issues start arising with people who don’t agree with people’s thoughts.
It’s okay to have different opinions as long as you don’t hurt anyone!
Right, now I’m seeing a lot of love in the brolin and merlin fandom, which is great!
Whether you want to believe that Bradley and Colin are friends, best friends, or boyfriends is your choice! You can make your own mind up! We’re all above the age of 12… or we should be.
These are assumptions that have been made by Brolin shippers on the whole:
Bradley flew back from LA to see Colin on the opening night of the Tempest. He did so out of love.
Now what the hell is wrong with making that assumption? - which has a high chance of being true due to the fact that only 1 or 2 days ago pictures of Bradley in America were circulating and now, right on the opening night of the tempest, there have been pictures of him by the Thames, right by Shakespeare’s Globe, AND some had an inkling that they had seen him IN the globe.
There’s nothing offensive about thinking that two people are together and in love unless the people themselves request that people stop or you start asking them personal questions that they may not be ready or wanting to answer.
On tumblr, I’ve seen a lot of sweetness and happiness from pretty much everyone about Bradley going to see the play, I myself am over the moon!
So people, don’t blow holes in other people’s ships, sit back and think “if I was in that fandom, would I want to be interrupted by some random hateful person wanting to burst my bubble?”, no, treat others how you wish to be treated. Let people have their fun, it’ll pass within a few days, these things always do. Blacklist what you don’t want to see.
Just… everyone, stop hating on other people’s ships, whether you like Georgia and Bradley or Colin and Bradley, let people be in peace. As long as people don’t get personal with Bradley, Georgia, or Colin and don’t get invasive or rude, then leave them be.
When it comes down to it, we’re people on an internet site losing our shit and Bradley and Colin are probably not very aware of it most of the time, they’re busy people. They have their own lives to lead, and everyone shouting at each other that they don’t think these people should be or are together should just calm down because you have no impact on the real life truth.
Until we get proper confirmation in an interview or from a picture, all we have are our imaginations and what we believe in our hearts to be true. If people think brolin is canon, then that’s fine. If people think that it’s all a bit mumbo-jumbo and bullshit then that’s fine too, just don’t be nasty to each other. It’s really simple to avoid ship/fandom wars and I think we should all just have a group hug because whether you disagree with someone’s ship or not, we’re all passionate about Merlin and our passion shows through our love for it and that’s fantastic. So let’s love each other. We’re like a group of siblings, we’re all a bit different but we come from the same parents and that’s what unites us.
Also, wise words from Gwaine:
"Nobility is defined by what you do. Not who you are."
