I totally agree with what you said about bechloe, like there was a really great opportunity for mainstream representation, it would've been amazing if they did it and did it right. And I also understand that that was never the intention for those two characters, but I really didn't like the way Elizabeth and Brittany talked about it as though it's a ridiculous idea. Kinda hurts that people seem so afraid of going there, making that kind of commitment, you know?
I agree with all of this, it’s such a huge wasted opportunity. I think the inability for them to take it seriously is the part that hurts the most. Being respectful of the shippers, regardless of what happens in canon, is the least that they can do.
