what producers don't understand about queerbaiting
You don’t have an iron grip over the story. The story happens. GOOD producers would go with what makes sense instead of what pushes your anti-gay agenda. Your story? Your story says it’s canon. People see it because it’s there. The ship is real. If there are legitimate other reasons why the ship isn’t canon? Fine, but there never is. It’s just you trying to deny something the story puts a fucking spotlight on. So maybe I’ll still follow the story even if you’re queerbaiting. You know why I’m still here? Because the story says the ship is THERE and the ship is REAL. You created the story, but you are no God of it. Fuck you for stifling a compelling story with your ugly homophobia.
When you come up with scenarios while shivering in a movie theater for 2 hours..
A asks B out to the movies for a date night. B hasn’t been feeling all that great but doesn’t say anything to A because B really wants to spend time with A.
As the movie progresses, so does the low grade fever B has been running all day. B begins shivering from fever chills and A asks “cold?” B replies “yea, must be the AC.” A wraps their arm around B, frowning at the heat. A then starts to piece stuff together as B sits, leaning against them and shivering. A grabs their stuff and B’s hand and takes them out of the theater.
When they get outside, A immediately places their hand on B’s forehead. A’s eyes narrow at B. “Why didn’t you say anything?” B looks down. “I wanted to spend time with you”
A shoots B a sympathetic look before gently leading B out of the theater.
