Was it the staff intention to make fans ship Jarco with Bon Bon the birthday clown? Cause I'm a huge Starco shipper, but the episode made me really enjoy and appreciate Jarco due to some great character development from Jackie
Intention? I dunno …when we were writing it originally we really just wanted a moment where Star got to see Jackie through Marco’s eyes sorta - where she finally sees what he sees in Jackie. So hopefully it feels like the story is very sympathetic to all of them.
Just so the Internet knows, “shipping” isn’t really discussed when we write these stories. We are certainly aware that these pairings are going to appeal to people and we definitely have our own “ships”; I’m team Geminous - but if we were trying to write to those relationships in an inorganic way you’d probably hate the stories (assuming you like some of them ;).
