Chelsea and Raven: My original Brittana.
Raven can be mean, and sometimes she lacks morals, but Chelsea is almost always there to calm her down. When other people make them feel like they aren’t good enough- lying and cheating and such- then the other is always there to tell the other they are wonderful.
Chelsea Daniels: Yeah, but now, Rae, I have no boyfriend.
Raven Baxter: Yeah, well that guy is crazy because you have ‘it’ going on.
Chelsea is perceived as stupid by… almost everyone. Some people will call her out on it, but Raven will mark it as a Chelsea-ism and knows it’s just how Chelsea sees the world: literally.
Eddie: Guys! Guys! I have the funniest thing.
Chelsea: (laughs) That was hilarious!
Raven: Chels, he hasn’t said the funny thing yet.
Chelsea: Or maybe you just don’t get it Rae.
Raven will correct her, usually gently, sometimes more sternly, but she never calls her stupid.
She knows that Chelsea has a gentle nature, and supports the things she believes in, even if she doesn’t believe them herself. Like the fur lined jacket that could have made her career for her whilst she was still in High School. But when she understands how much it will upset Chelsea, how it could ruin their friendship in some way, she vetos the idea completely.
They protect each other (like Raven standing covered in clay for hours so that Chelsea’s art project is able to be shown) sometimes more fiercely than others- or at least as fierce as Disney is allowed to show on daytime TV. Chelsea telling Miles “Alright, move it out hotlips” with a rare tone of anger in her voice.
Or when she refuses to tell Alana and her girls where Raven is after they catch her in the corridor.
With petnames and Chelsea being at Raven’s all the time… this is about as close to Brittana as the Disney Channel was ever going to get. And I love it.
