I could cry,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Tiz and Agnès from Bravely Default, with some sheep and a couple of shippers (full size for better quality)

Listen up “Snowbarry”, I don't usually try to spur hate or anything but

Snowbarry shippers as so delusional and crazy… I can’t fathom their logic. They swear that Westallen is being built to just fall apart so then Caitlin can come and be there for Barry…????

First of all, how much do you really love Caitlin if you want her to get with Barry as his second choice? Like really, that’s how much you support her? That’s the BEST you want for her? Okay… So you’re telling me you want Caitlin to be second best to a guy AFTER she’s lost her HUSBAND and was horrifically lied to by a PSYCHOPATH? I don’t know about you, but I feel bad for the poor girl and she deserves someone good, that will treat her right, she deserves it. (Truly, I choose Cisco).

Secondly, CAITLIN AND BARRY ARE FRIENDS. Honestly people, you guys want more “justice” for a female character in the most peculiar way. You want Caitlin to be more of a focal point yet you’re trying to downgrade her from an intelligent scientist to a girl that pines after a guy in love with someone else and a guy that has so much HISTORY with someone else that that other person will always be present in his relationship??? Why can’t Barry and Caitlin be friends? Well, they are friends, good friends actually, you guys just reach so fucking far in their scenes to make them something they are not. I can’t believe some of you freak out at Barry smiling at Caitlin for a literal millisecond… I don’t even want those scraps for Caitlin.

Brings me to my THIRD point. Barry and Iris are canon, it’s just how “life” (in the flash-verse") is. They can’t be friends, because that’s not how they were created all those years ago in the comics. Iris was created for Barry to ground him, support him, advise him, and be there for him in a way no one else can. She’s his LIGHTING ROD, which is a comic book reference/idea, where the Flash needs someone to keep him at bay, be what doesn’t let him get out of control with his powers and/or in the speed force (see 2x21 and 3x01 on the show for reference); Iris is Barry’s just like Linda is Wally’s. Aside from that support, they were written to be in love, to have a love that transcends time, a love that will make each other’s bad days a good day. There’s so much I could write about their love and the concept of them that it’s not even funny nor due I have the patience to break it down for you guys in a way you could properly comprehend.

I honestly didn’t ship Barry and Iris from the beginning of the show. It was a slow progression for me. I know there were people already obsessing with that relationship before it even aired (just like SBs shipped B&C because of a urinal sample cup???? You guys are so blatant, it’s almost comical at how indiscreet you guys are being when you think you’re being so clever). Anyways, I went into the show liking the comic book canon and not really feeling Barry and Iris. But since I actually PAY ATTENTION to the show and the symbolism that is being displayed in EVERY episode they shoot, I came to grow love for them. There’s no way you can’t if you’re actually deciphering the source material like it is being presented to you. It’s not about comic book canon, although they are, but it’s about what they’ve built on the show.

Lastly, don’t tell me for an IOTA of a second that Danielle’s acting is good. I don’t go about trashing how she acts actively, but I consider her acting extremely subpar to everyone else’s on the show… the only time her acting was acceptable and genuine was when she cried to Cisco about Ronnie in Season 1… outside from the SB’s, the general audience agrees with that too… I saw some people talking about Candice’s acting and are you kidding me? Her acting is phenomenal and it’s gotten there, not that she’s been amazing since the beginning (although to me she’s always had strong acting skills, also like Kevin Smith said now that they’re giving her more to do, she really shines). Everyone praises her acting, she got her role BECAUSE of her chemistry with Grant; and one of the most notable concepts discussed in the recent articles is that she was one of the highlights of the Season 3 premiere, this being with her chemistry with Grant and respectively as her own character.

Honestly, if you guys would open up your minds to reality and read and document yourselves, you’d see that the delusion you guys have created in your head is based upon no concrete or logical evidence. It’s really a travesty.

P.S.I’m not trying to convert anyone or bash on anyone. If you like Snowbarry that’s fine, but know that your ship is fallacious as fuck.

To be honest, I think The 100 is giving Bellamy and Clarke shippers a taste of what we LGBT folk usually have to endure with more than 99.7% of TV shows.

Seeing your ship as a constant possibility, the pain of trying to find meaning between every glance, and salvaging as much meaning as we can from a single 2 second interaction.

What I’m saying is to please just let us have this.

The disappointment you feel is what most of us are constantly feeling.

You guys can just switch the channel and watch some other show that meets all your needs, but this is all we get.

You want to ship Bellarke? Go for it, you have the right to do as you please on your own terms. No one can stop you.

Just please stop ruining someone else’s fun just because this one time you couldn’t get what you want.

Respect others if you wish to be respected yourself.
