WestAllen Stans Are Delusional
WestAllen fans think Barry and Iris have chemistry.
WestAllen fans think all Snowbarry shippers/people who don’t ship Barry and Iris are racist.
WestAllen fans don’t acknowledge that the actual reason 99% of people ship Snowbarry and dislike WestAllen/Iris is because of a lack of chemistry and Iris being a poorly written character.
WestAllen fans don’t realize that the majority of Snowbarry shippers, while we might not like Iris, we like/have absolutely nothing against Candice Patton. We recognize that an actress is not the character she plays
WestAllen fans don’t acknowledge the awkwardness of the pairing. It’s not actually incest, but it sure can be awkward when their dad walks in on them.
WestAllen fans don’t acknowledge the fact that Iris once said she and Barry were kind of like brother and sister even though they weren’t. Maybe Barry has never seen her as a sister, but she certainly has seen him as a brother.
WestAllen fans never acknowledge the fact that Iris made her decision to get with Barry because of “destiny”.
WestAllen fans think it’s okay that Iris tried to sabotage Barry’s relationship with Linda, saying that she was just starting to realize her feelings and that’s why she did it. Okay, so why didn’t Barry crash her and Eddie’s dates and tell Eddie things in an effort to break him and Iris up like Iris did with Linda? After all, Barry was very aware of his feelings for Iris, and yet with the exception of when Iris kissed him in an alternate timeline, he was always 100% supportive of her relationship. He even tried to convince Joe that it was wrong not to give Eddie his blessing to marry Iris.
WestAllen fans think how Iris emotionally abuses Barry in episodes like 3x15 and 3x16 isn’t toxic.
WestAllen fans hate Barry for maturely asking for some space, yet are totally on Iris’s side when she vindictively waits in the room for Barry to wake up after being stabbed by Savitar, show off her ring-less singers, and walk away.
WestAllen fans don’t acknowledge that Savitar isn’t a clone of Barry. He’s a future version of Barry, and guess what, he was willing to kill Iris.
WestAllen fans don’t acknowledge that while Savitar threatened to kill Killer Frost if Cisco didn’t help him, he tried to kill Iris twice and threatened to try a third time. If he’s willing to do that to the supposed love of his life, who’s to say he didn’t in his own way care about Frost despite threatening to kill her? At least he never tried like he did with Iris!
WestAllen fans say Savitar was just using Killer Frost, but it was only in this timeline that he needed her to help him take down the Black Flash. Before Barry went to 2024, Savitar wasn’t going to use Tracy to build the speed force bazooka earlier so he could splice himself throughout time, considering he still got trapped in the speed force by Barry. And guess what? He still worked with Killer Frost and never killed her in that timeline. If he had shown any inclination to not care about her/their partnership, she wouldn’t have said they made one hell of a team.
WestAllen fans ignore the amazing chemistry Barry and Caitlin have and were allowed to express in season one before the writers started keeping them apart to prop up WestAllen.
WestAllen fans get pissed when anyone sends Candice hate, (a rational/good thing to do), but ignore it/write it off as unimportant when someone sends Danielle or even Grant hate.
Some WestAllen fans go so far as to be Grandice fans, and while I have seen Granielle fans too, I have yet to see one of them openly bash Grant and his fiancee LA. It might happen, but until I see it, I can’t say for sure. I think the Grandice fans are far more extreme and they have for sure bashed Grant and LA because they want Grant to get with Candice.
WestAllen fans start frothing at the mouth anytime someone even criticizes how Iris’s character is written, and yet I have seen them talk about wanting Caitlin to die and they expect no one to bat an eye at that.
WestAllen fans hate Savitar for trying to kill Iris in an act of self-preservation considering if she didn’t die, he would never be born. He even said so to Killer Frost and the moment she survived, the paradox began to catch up to him. And yet, none of them batted an eye when Iris shot Savitar in the back with a gun right in front of Barry. Sure, she was trying to save him, but if they sympathize with her shouldn’t they also sympathize with his plight? After all, he is Barry. Oh, wait, they only care about Iris. My bad.
WestAllen fans think Iris saved Barry just like she does when she shot Savitar, and she technically did, yet they all seem to forget the fact that she also killed Barry in front of him.
WestAllen stans think Barry didn’t care about any of the other relationships he was in. But Barry really had feelings for Felicity and even called her from Central City to tell her if she ever wanted to date someone other than Oliver, that he would be on time. He liked Linda a lot, but Iris was there interfering the whole time, so Barry and Linda sadly never stood a chance. Sucks, because I thought Linda was cool. But, we know Barry really wanted it to work and really did care about the relationship considering after Iris’s interference, Barry was willing to eat that horribly hot pepper in an effort to convince Linda that he really wanted the two of them to stay together. And then Barry really loved Patty. He got his eyesight back after kissing her, went on a literal blind date with her because he really didn’t want to cancel, told her he loved her, there was a deleted scene where they made love and he ran out to get her ice cream, he was open to exploring something new even though Iris was his first love and wasn’t even thinking about his feelings for Iris when he was dating Patty, he wanted to tell Patty he was the Flash, he loved her enough to let her go so she’d be safe, and he had nightmares about Zoom killing her because she was the person he loved and he knew Zoom would go after the people he loved most. It wasn’t nightmares about Iris dying he was having. It was Patty. Snowbarry shippers and non WA shippers don’t deny that Barry loves Iris, and yet, I have seen so many WestAllen stans act like Barry hasn’t cared about any of his past love interests at all when that’s a blatant lie.
WestAllen stans are going to accuse me of using their tag even though I put this in the anti tag. Learn to use the hashtag. If you show up here with your hate, you will be blocked. If you come at me with foul language, death threats, and false accusations as you have in the past, you will be reported WestAllen stans.
WestAllen fans call their ship healthy despite everything I have listed.
WestAllen fans are going to come along and deny everything I have said because they are delusional and only see things through their shipper goggles.
And WestAllen fans think Snowbarry shippers are the delusional ones! Honestly, most people who ship Snowbarry are pretty sure it’s never going to happen by now. It doesn’t matter to us, though. Why should we stop shipping our ship just because it isn’t canon? I didn’t stop shipping Zutara, Dramione, or Harmony because of Kataang, Maiko, and Romione, so why would I stop shipping Snowbarry? So, how exactly are Snowbarry shippers delusional if we aren’t saying constantly how our pairing is for sure going to happen and that Barry doesn’t love Iris?
Also for any wayward Westallen fan who comes along to bother me, before you call me racist like I know you’re going to despite the fact that my post was not racist at all, take another look at my blog and you will see that my favorite character on the 100 was Lincoln, a black man, I love Bonnie, a black woman, from the Vampire Diaries and Bonenzo was my OTP, I’m writing a book where my female lead is a black woman, and not only did I have a huge crush on a black boy in my freshman year of high school, but my first boyfriend was Mexican. So, shut your traps when it comes to race. And if you try to say that my pointing out that I have loved POC is racist as so many people do, then I don’t know what’s wrong with you honestly. How the hell is it racist to say that I have loved people of color? It’s not like I’m one of those people who says they have friends who are people of color after making a racist slur; I have never made a racist slur in my life and nothing about my post was racist. And I didn’t love these people because they were people of color. That just happened to be their race. All you have to do is be a good person and I can like you. Race means nothing to me. You have to realize, my parents never taught me about other people’s prejudices. I didn’t know prejudices existed until I learned about them in school. I was appalled when I found out that people discriminated against each other for something like race. Because of the way I was raised, I don’t have a racist or bigoted bone in my body. I look at who people are as people, what their personalities are, how they treat others, and then I make a decision as to whether or not I would want to be their friend/continue being their friend. I don’t look at skin color at all.
