The “heterosexual explanation for this” is that they’re friends. It’s not that difficult. Y'all preach all the time about how platonic affection should be normalized regardless of sex, gender, identity, or orientation, and then as soon as two female characters so much as glance at each other you’re all declaring that they’re in love and getting married next week.
Okay this is a mini rant, but I don't see how people just start hating Klance because of the shippers. They say people are shoving it down their throats. It's one of the most popular ships in the fandom, do they want people to stop creating content? Or when they say anti shaladins ruined it for the because they ship Klance. Like these people don't have a direct influence on the characters or their dynamic. They just ship Klance and hate pedophilic ships.
