It features a canon lgbt relationship between a gay boy and a demisexual boy, a relationship that isn’t even a main focus of the books but still manages to contribute to both the plot and the character development.
A same-sex relationship that doesn’t end tragically, that shows these two characters staying together for years to come and leading a healthy domestic life with two cats, an apartment and a joint career.
A relationship that may not start out well, that is anything but love at first sight, but grows so much through personal struggles and mutual respect, and results in something worthwhile.
A relationship that places heavy emphasis not only on mutual consent, on learning and supporting, on protection and respect, but also on individual independence.
A relationship that doesn’t cast other characters to the sidelines, that isn’t the main character’s only source of happiness, because it takes more than romance to develop a character.
A relationship with a goddamn happy ending that feels entirely deserving for both characters because this is how they love, this is how they overcome their past, this is how they grow, not dependent on each other but side-by-side.
Just a goddamn happy same-sex relationship that doesn’t end in death or separation and that involves characters actually learning to respect and love each other basically???
Oh My God! You love Dear Evan Hansen! Yesssss. Since I'm seeing a lot of trans love in your blog (#fuckyeahtrans), you should draw some trans!Evan, Connor, Jared (gayming son), or Zoe!! I love you and your art sm!
You know, as much as I adore that we’re getting all this great information about season 3, with new female characters directly from the Supergirl comics and Kara’s mother becoming recurring (which indicates that the focus is possibly going to be on Kara again) I feel like we’re getting all this information right before sdcc because they want us to focus on this and forget about an awful season 2. They’re trying to protect themselves and their terrible decisions and hope that by the time sdcc comes, we’ll be so happy with all the recent news we’ve gotten that we won’t bother reminding them about what a terrible season they just had. And with Krei*berg not in attendance? They clearly know they’ve messed up and want to minimize the backlash.
But I’m still pissed. Because as good as season 3 looks, it doesn’t erase the hurtful/offensive message they sent out in season 2. And why should we just shut up and let them get away with it?
