in all honesty, im super excited for season 3, especially sharing the experience with the fandom and my friends. when s2 came out the vibe and atmosphere was really nice, everyone hype-screaming & bonding over the show. it felt real nice to see the fandom happy and joking and im super pumped to go through it again during this season and more to come
To continue the in character Hyde in season 1 headcanon/meta, you think Jackie would had fallen in love with him earlier?
Not necessarily, just as he may not fall for her earlier either.
What would had changed it’s the way their interactions would had gone and the way his relationship and small crush on Donna would had worked out. I think, had he been in character since the pilot, his resentment towards Jackie would had been lesser with the past of the episodes after ‘Ski Trip’.
‘Ski Trip’ it’s the first time we see Jackie running into his arms when she is seeking comfort. We never get an explanation on why, and my guess is that writers did it for the laughs since he was presented as the cold hearted/jerk of the gang at the beginning, so having this girly girl wanting to hug him and cry on his chest was going to be ‘funny’, especially when he was, in ‘Ski Trip’, trying to get Donna.
(I also have this headcanon that Jackie may have gone to bear-hug Hyde to save Donna from the awkwardness, since she knew Hyde was crushing on her friend and was being stalked by him)
But joke’s on them because we didn’t see anything funny but cute in it, lmao.
Anyway, I think they could had formed an actual friendship and we could had seen it grow with episodes like ‘Career Day’ while they were hanging with Red, and ‘Prom Night’ (I believe this would still be the hugeeee HJ episode on season 1).
~ Prom Night ~
I’m making a whole section for this because I have given it a lot of thoughts since we first started talking about this posibility.
Well, I don’t know why I’m making this post but I’ll do it anyway.
Guys, I understand everyone is hyper about the kiss between Apple and Darling and I’ve seen people complaining and cheering or even saying they are canonically gay so I’m going to give you a piece of my mind.
Let’s first remember that Ever After High is a show for children and they have parents that aren’t always reasonable. Keeping that in mind we need to remember the reaction of lots of parents to LGBT+ appearances in kids show, there was complaining and I remember reading that Good Luck Charlie was cancelled due to showing two leasbian mom’s, just showing (idk if it’s true but you’ve got my point, right?)
That’s why I think it was played as CPR and no one addressed it in the rest of the episode. I think they let things open like this to see people reaction and to adopt the response that brings more public (c’mon it’s still a show to sell dolls). I think it was a brilliant marketing strategy because polemic brings public and public equals more dolls sold.
But we can’t ignore that in Snow White story only Love’s First Kiss/True Love’s Kiss etc can wake
Apple White. So what options does Mattel have?
1- It was friends love:
Yes, they can pull that because it’s a real thing and it’ll make homophobics step back. If Mattel gets a lot of shit for showing a “lesbian” couple they can pull that and go safely with the show.
2- The intention of Darling was different from Daring’s:
Also a good possibility to escape homophobes. Daring didn’t seemed focused on waking Apple and seemed there for the show, on the other hand the
purpose of Darling was waking Apple up so it would fit the scene.
Now we get on the ones I like…
3- Darling is a lesbian/in love with Apple:
There isn’t any part of the story that says it needs to be mutual love and even if Darling hasn’t showed a
love interest in Apple she still could be in love deep down.
4- Apple is a lesbian/in love with Darling:
It would explain a lot more than the argument above why Daring couldn’t wake Apple up. If she’s a lesbian no man’s kiss would wake her up and that explain why Darling, the one Charming
, could wake her up.
5- They are destined to be a couple:
This would fit everything, Apple being a lesbian and fulfilling her destiny as Snow White. It’s also the one that follows best the original story and we could hope to see more lesbian moments (bringing more space to LGBT+ characters).
So long story short:
They let it open to see the best way to continue the show and I hope it has the gays in it.
I would actually love to know opinions and thoughts of someone who didn't watch the show at all abt Klance after showing Klance moments(tm) so we could know how it looks without overanalyzing things or if it's really so highkey romantic, or if they think Klance has a chance of becoming canon, or just how this relationship etc looks for the 1st time u watch the thing (I unfortunately don't remember so rip) (but I can't show it to any of my friends for the 1st time cuz I talk abt it all the time)
someone who has seen’t voltron please explain what is happening
