idk how people are missing ur point w the bluepulse queer baiting thing bc i completely get how u feel tbh but i don't think the writers were intentionally trying to do that. in all honestly bluepulse was probably interpreted as platonic to them but fans saw their relationship differently and so the producers used this to tease us. (the joke w the onscreen kiss, hinting at queer characters to purposely imply bluepulse.) personally if they don't deliver their claims i'll feel v disrespected.
I think people are used to whinny posts about how the fans “deserve” their favorite ship and look at this huge chart of how it’s “totally canon guys!” and creepy over the top attacks on in canon girlfriends who are “getting in the way” so people see someone bitching about something related and I think they just see what they expect, maybe don’t even read it and fill in the blanks themselves.
I think you’re right I doubt the writers sat down and said “okay guys we’re gonna make a really coded gay friendship to try to get the gays interested but never make them lovers, cool?” I mean I hope not but I can also tell there are shows where that totally did happen. It is pretty clear that marketing saw that there were lots of people on the internet very interested in that idea. They realized if they dropped a hint, or a joke or implied something, twitter, Tumblr etc would blow up generating what for them is millions of dollars worth of totally free advertising. Marvel first came up with this kind of marketing, not the gay part, but the, “drop something small” confirm an easter egg, imply something, drop a new trailer unexpectedly, watch internet blow up, enjoy free advertisement.
given shipping and fandom culture it’s very easy to do the same vis gay content in shows like Young Justice, or Voltron or (fill in the blank) but unlike other kinds of marketing they’re (so far) pretty much always intentionally lying with their hints and clues solely to generation free marketing for them and keep fans interested in representation coming back because “maybe this season” also oddly it seems to bring on negative effects to shows that in fact have have LGBT characters/plot lines
oh also it seems to shield a lot of shows from getting called out for having no LGBT characters the way they might if they were all white. I’ve seen a lot of people talk about Supernatural as a “gay” show but of course it isn’t at all, indeed taking out ships and queer baiting are there any netflix original shows with a gay male character playing a major part? (I guess Grace and Frankie?)
Hello!! I'm new to your blog and I love your posts but what exactly is Mavinseg?
heyyyy dude!!!!! happy to explain!!!
you got rooster teeth right, and its coworkers
and as the internet does, we, the rt fandom, ship all of them together at some point unless that person has stated they dont want any of that (like arryn) and the shipping web for rt is massive and complicated thus i will talk about the one
so mavinseg is
this nerd, Gavin Free, my baby, my awesome smol science son, who’s dating meg irl (and they have a kitty and a dog)
this adorable nerd, Meg Turney, my queen, who’s irl dating Gavin, and who could kill me at any time if she wantec
this nerd, whom i love as well, Lindsay Jones
and this nerd, Michael jones, and He and Lindsay are married irl
and Mavinseg which, the ship name comes from M(ichael)(G)avin(Lind)s(say)(M)eg, is them all dating each other in the greatest ot4 and like, the basis, like some ships can just be slapping characters together just bc they existed near each other for three seconds
not so with mavinseg! they are all canon great friends, like, michael and Gavin are the absolute best of friends like michael has waxed poetic about his friendship with gavin who he even has a pet nickname “boi” for like its really deep and very sweet
and michael has said that he and meg are essentially the exact same person, same temperament, same personality etc. madn that gavin and lindsay were the same person so theres that
like, They have teams like, and case in point, for Michael’s birthday, his birthday, he, gavin, lindsay and meg all went out to some place for a weekend of swimming and mario party like….
pictures of their double dates
i mean its so good and im so weak for it and i did NOT intend to write this fucking dissertation but im so weak for this ship
and like, you can hear the denial in my post like “no its totally canon guys!!!” bc im pathetic and i live in denial always like its so cringe but like
