Hi! So... can you explain why you don't ship Creek? (It sounds bad. I didn't intended it tho. I love your blog, and basically everything that u're posting! I just want to know what you don't like about this ship, because I'm theirs trash lmao)
no worries, i dont mind explaining!
there’s a lot of things that bug me about creek? first off its origins because it all started with Tweek vs Craig back in 1999 which was literally their only interaction ever. and they were pitted against each other and fought the entire time. but somehow it became one of the most popular ships in the fandom and rivaled style for years.
and like, i get rival ships, i do, because i love staig LOL and thats what youd expect to come out from that episode, right? but with tweek and craig no one really ships them as rivals? they ship them as like…cute and soft and gentle and loving and it just seems really out of character to me. i dont think id hate creek as much as i do if it was like, done right, you know? ive just never seen someone handle it in a way that appeals to me. (and a lot of the time people dont even get staig right… maybe im just really nitpicky mndfmsdfn)
and the whole Tweek x Craig episode really bothered me, too. i mean the episode was really funny but the thing that didnt sit right with me was…how they were basically forced together. and they kept claiming they weren’t gay, but everyone else was pushing that on to them. and even if they were gay, you should never force someone to come out? like…id want craig and tweek to come out and say it when they were ready not because they wanted to make everyone else happy. like it just made me uncomfortable because…theyre literally only together because of pressure and guilt.
and even then, the only time they enjoy eachother’s company it seems is when theyre away from everyone else and. you know. being friends. but as soon as they have to act like a couple they just….have a blank expression and arent that into it. i just dont like that LOL
i love craig and tweek as their own characters but, when paired together i just…i dont know. its not something i can get behind, so im sorry creek shippers.
