Don't you think that Gimple, Danai and Kirkman recent statements saying that richonne was somehow in their minds since Clear is in one way or another related to Laurie Holden's itw in which she said that she was supposed to become rick's girlfriend?
You know, I honestly hadn’t thought of that… But it’s plausible.
Holden’s statements had been making the rounds, so maybe, just maybe, that is the case. What a delicious way to shut that shit down…
<–personally, thinks Holden was just being salty and not only being killed off, but not being as popular as she thought she’d be
Danai was acting as Richonne ambassador last weekend, basically, and Gimple has given all kinds of quotes of shipping them from the jump, and planting Easter eggs. I don’t know why Andy was zipped up tight, but since we all know he can’t hold water, my guess is…what was that quote he said about them being two warriors in love? Does anyone have the direct quote/source?
My fanwank is this:
Something TREMENDOUSLY AWESOME is gonna happen between Rick and Michonne in 7A. Maybe we’ll get the “I love you,” which would fit emotion-wise. Maybe we’ll get that covert wedding. Negan’s going on a rampage, wanting to take everything Rick has, but he can’t have Michonne. Maybe we’ll catch wind of Richonne Jr.–who knows. But whatever it is, they put Andy on ice and told him to drink a nice, tall glass of STFU because of it. I mean, that man is always talking, but we got basically zilch out of him. I take it as a good sign.
But yes! Gimple and Danai were pumping Richonne up, establishing their true canon (which I’ve been saying for effing ever, for real), started when they met. I feel so validated on that, y’all.
I’ll say it one more time:
“The Next World” isn’t when Richonne became canon; it’s when Rick and Michonne consummated what they already had. Someone, change that anniversary date to March 3rd, or really, November 25th.
