Sorry for continuing this theme in your asks, but I've always wondered. What if they keep giving us enough text to make us happy while still keeping it ambiguous for the GA. Have their cake and eat it too? It's not like we could do anything at that stage, when it's over. I know you just tell us what's already in the show etc., I just wanted your opinion. Happy conululu :)
Why keep it ambiguous for the GA when they’re currently building it for the GA to notice? The GA are noticing. The antis are puking bile they’re so angry. They’re losing the tiny portion of anti fans (and not caring, the writers are literally joking about their shit on twitter because they know its so toxic and it’s bullying) meanwhile they’re validating Destiel fans and gaining GA fans whilst also making the existing ones sit up and notice this. Why are they making it so much more obvious so that GA are sending me messages telling me they’re noticing and coming on tumblr because they’re googling Dean and Cas and finding our part of fandom. Why are others sending me messages saying their roommates or partners are noticing when they happen to be in the room during these scenes?
It’s becoming blatant.
Why ramp it up if not to go there? What do they GAIN from this? Keeping a few conservative homophobic assholes happy? Everyone else will ship it if they keep going on this track and the few diehard bibros will have quit and no-one will have noticed. They tried to boycott last episode yet it GAINED viewership.
The bro-advertised 13x05 lost viewers. The destiel-advertised 13x06 gained a ton of viewers, it went up a whopping 10% (that’s HUGE in TV) over 13x05
There’s no reason to keep it ambiguous. What do they gain from that? Just falling into the depths of history of just another monster show that no-one gave a crap about a year after it ended.
Or do they go balls out and finish writing the greatest love story ever told, one that is socio-culturally groundbreaking and is a beautiful story in it’s own right?
I know what I’d want to do if I was in charge.
