Did you already hear about the interview that said there will be no romantic klance in canon? (But they will learn to respect each other, soo platonic klance all the way.) First, I was really sad but in the end it just means we have to stick to fanon and I guess that's nice too. The show's still great.
I have a feeling that my answer to this will not be what people would have expected from me :P But believe me when I say this: I never expected them to become canon.
See, I am not shipping two characters because they are “likely to become canon” or whatever. I’m here because I love them as standalone characters and because I freaking adore their interactions. Their bickering gives me life. Their honest and tender moments make me smile so hard that my cheeks hurt. In a sense I just want them to be happy and spend more time together, I want to watch their relationship develop and see them to grow up. I just- I love seeing them together and I love having the freedom to put them into AUs and non-canon situations and imagine how they’d act there.
Fandom and canon are two things that have always been separate for me. There is a reason why I always put “this is a joke” or “don’t take this as serious proof” in the tags when I make a klance post. I am reluctant to reblog posts with explicit “proof” of them becoming canon because people here like to blur the line between fandom and canon and that will leave them disappointed one way or another.
This show is not about romance and these characters are not our characters, no matter how much we love them. This show is about saving the universe, about learning that black-and-white mentality is damaging, about friendship and family and teamwork and finding your place in the world through personal struggles. The creators of the show had a message to deliver and they invented amazing characters to get their point across. So amazing, in fact, that people seem to forget constantly that their personal headcanons are not necessarily lining up with those of the creators :P
What I want to say with this is: Shipping is for fun. Fandom is for fun. That’s all I’ve ever seen it as. This interview changed absolutely nothing for me, I will continue to ship them and write for them as I’ve always done. I will continue to scream about their canon interactions and point out things that could be seen in a romantic light. I will keep doing exactly what I’ve been doing all this time because fanon is fanon and canon is canon and these two are completely separate. I love klance with all my heart and nothing will ever change that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When you become a police officer, sometimes there are criminals like this, that you will risk your life to capture, because he’s not the usual bastard out there. Right now, I see in my mind my son and my wife’s faces. I know I might not see them again… If we die, who will protect our families? Who will protect them?”
