I think its so important to remember just how different 616stevetony is (and all the subsequent comic universes) from MCUstevetony. I just saw the spoilers for an upcoming comic panel when AI!Tony calls Steve his best friend, and someone in the replies was like “well what about Rhodey.” And of this was the MCU, that comment would be totally justified. In the films, Rhodey is without a doubt Tony’s best friend, there’s not even any competition. Like, yes, he has Pepper and Bruce, and even Nat and Steve, but none of them are Rhodey because for MCUtony NO ONE can compare to Rhodey. There each others rocks, brothers in all things except blood. Just like in MCU canon, that’s what Bucky is to Steve.
But in the comics??? Tony undoubtedly loves Rhodey, and Steve loves Bucky, but no one in the comics has been through as much together as Steve and Tony have. In the comics, THEY are each others rocks. Not Bucky or Rhodey. They’re best friends, no questions asked. Even when they fight, even when they’re angry with each other, even when they’re leaving each other ridiculously bloody, they love and respect each other (never said their relationship is healthy, notice how I’m not claiming that.) So yeah, comic!Stevetony and MCU!stevetony are different, and have different dynamics and if you want to keep your timelines straight (and not give yourself a MAJOR headache oh my god), they probably shouldn’t be confused for each other.
I am gonna tag every massive ship because everyone needs to hear me out about this. I’m not gonna call out any ships or people.
I love Voltron Legendary Defender, I really love it and all the characters are so precious and my ships make me so happy, you can’t imagine. But let me just say a goddamn thing, the fandom is pissing me the fuck off.
First of all, leave the goddamn VA’s alone? Stop harassing the voice actors about your ships; I’m not just looking at the shippers of my Notps. Nope, the shippers of my otps too. The VA’s have nothing to do with the story line so don’t drag them into this childish ‘war.’
Secondly, what the actual fuck is the point of sending hate? What is the point of stooping so low that you waste your precious time on sending hateful messages to anyone that doesn’t ship what you ship?
There are big ships in this fandom that I don’t ship and that’s not because something else is my otp. I just don’t think they have chemistry, or I see them as great platonic friends/etc… but sending hate to shippers of something you dislike does not stop them from shipping it. If anyone would send me hate about my otp they can just fuck off and go back to their lives, I’ll never stop shipping it even if something else becomes canon.
Okay before anyone that follows me calls me a hypocrite because I have reblogged things that look sort of ‘anti.’ I have reblogged things that made fun of shippers, and I’m not going to delete those posts. They are never legitimately mean, they just make fun of it, just like I have reblogged posts that make fun of shippers from my otp that show we see ‘canon!1!1!1’ in every single movement and I think those posts are funny.
Everyone needs to stop seeing this all so serious, it’s an animated series for god’s sake. So please just stop being so rude to everyone there’s no point.
1) stop dragging VA’s into your ship wars, they’re all lovely and deserve none of this
2) sending (anon)hate is childish and has no point. Just flag or ignore posts about your notp, unless you’re like me and like making fun of our pathetic fandom
3) Please just mind your own business and stop taking this all so serious. This is just an animated show. People shipping your notp won’t have any impact on your everyday life.
Finally; let’s all just enjoy the show and every character on its own, love our precious VA’s and stop behaving like children who are in need of attention thank you. If you need to reply to this or want to say/add anything else, talk to me personally or whatever go on anon I don’t care but hate will be ignored.
“You know, when you and I were together, every single atom in my body told me that it was the right thing. That we were the perfect fit. And that kind of love, it can change your whole life. And then when somebody who made you feel that way suddenly stops… the vacuum is just…”
