part 2: Also I was waiting for a brotp moment between these two, not a twisted romance fandom thing. Such an underrated brotp, they act natural with each other, because they don’t see them in a romantic light. For example I can’t make a brotp g.raylu gifset, without people tagging irrelevant things and bashing Juvia and Natsu in the tags and it makes me so uncomfortable.
tbh this fandom
or rather, no one in fandom’s can’t appreciate platonic relationships and i feel uncomfortable too, but it’s pretty much any time two characters interact it’s shipped quicker than wildfire. and in gray.lu’s case, most people don’t like natsu or juvia and can’t accept that nalu and gruvia are going the romantic direction so they go “oh gray.lu!. i honestly don’t understand why people read ft if they hate the main character. like no get out of the fandom, we don’t want to hear your bitching.
honestly the people who want gray.lu together at the end and actually believe it’ll happen, well sorry but it’d be bad writing cause there’s no development there at all and i believe mashima can do better than that. he is doing better than that.
i see a few gifsets/caps of them being bro’s and the tags are like “showing everyone they exist!” and it takes every self-control not to comment “yeah as a brotp”. considering this manga’s main theme is friendship, people really need to appreciate the friendship pairings and not romantically want everyone to hook up. it’s just weird.
