November 21, 2012 – the release of the final episode of Season One of Telltale Games The Walking Dead.

“Telltale’s The Walking Dead is one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time and […] a huge part of that success is due to the immense talent and hard work of Dave Fennoy and Melissa Hutchison who played Lee and Clementine. They worked together to create one of the most endearing and enduring relationships in video game history.” - Performance Matters

Fun fact: Dave Fennoy and Melissa Hutchison NEVER recorded a scene together as Lee and Clementine and only met for the first time randomly around the time Season 1, Episode 3 was being developed.

What People Don't Understand About "Cluke"

I would like to make the 100% clear to anyone before reading this mini-rant that IN NO WAY DO I SHIP CLEMENTINE AS AN 11-YEAR-OLD with Luke. Pedophilia is messed up to the millionth degree. However, this doesn’t mean I don’t ship it in 6-7 years when Clem is a young adult and old enough to a) be in a relationship and b) make mature decisions on her own. Because at that point, I would completely ship it.

Let’s start at the beginning with your concerns. A very good place to start:

Concern #1: Why are people even considering this ship? What caused this ship to even set sail?

This was a pretty easy one. Luke and Clem had a pretty great relationship from the get-go. A strong brother-sister bond. Luke seems to really respect her as a member of the group and not just a dumb little girl. He is the only one of Clem’s new group to do this, and that got many to take notice. Whether it’s a brOTP or a ship, people love this relationship because it’s genuine and the two seem to suit each other in a non-pervy, natural way. The dialogue flows, the fun is there, and let’s be honest, we all sort of have a crush on Luke, so that’s a factor for us playing as Clem. 

We see the potential. We like the relationship. Age becomes a non-issue after your teenage years in the ZA. So do we think it’s possible for this friendship to go further after a couple of years? Well, why not? Everything for a strong relationship is in development.

Concern #2: How about that age gap?

Firstly, even in the world today, age really doesn’t play much of a role in relationships once two people are consenting adults. People “click” based on their opinions and maturity levels, and Clem’s maturity is off the charts. From my personal life, my aunt and uncle are 22 years apart and very much in love. Age has never been a problem for them. They have two gorgeous kids and just work together.

I could see a similar situation with Luke and Clem who just seem to get each other. Although the ship is strictly platonic now, it would be unreasonable to think that nothing at all would crop up between them in the future. In the Zombie Apoc, age matters EVEN LESS. At max, Luke might be 15-16 years older than Clem, but in a world where happiness is rare and choices for partners are limited, people in the same groups can’t help considering each other. Clem is a strong young lady, and one day when she’s older, partnering up with someone who fits that personality type wouldn’t be a bad idea. 

Concern #3: Wouldn’t it be pretty nasty if Luke wanted to hook up with a kid?

Of course it would! But the Cluke shippers (at least the rational ones) are hoping for a relationship between Clem and Luke in the future, NOT CURRENTLY. Those who want a relationship NOW are SICK IN THE HEADS, to put it mildly. 

Luke has no *shudders* attraction to Clementine right now. None. NONE PEOPLE. He loves her because he wants to look after her and finds her to be a really cool kid with a good head on her shoulders. I’m pretty sure if Cluke ever happened in a reasonable way, Clem would have to be nearing her twenties. I’m sure Luke would feel pretty uncomfortable about his feelings at first and Clem might have to initiate. But it would be a slow-burn sort of thing. Something that grew out of respect and admiration, not after, what I like to call, “the other half of Tumblr” lust or sexual urges…

The two of them are both too level-headed and rational to ever do anything “flingy”. If it happened, it would be a partnership. They’d look out for each other. Sort of like a ZA marriage of sorts. The group would be in on it and grow to accept it. It’s a new world order, and sometimes, love happens whether you see it coming or not.

Concern #4: Still! It’s pretty weird ending up dating someone you knew when they were a kid!

Yeah. I think Luke would kind of struggle with this, I can’t lie. He’s a level-headed person, like I said above. Even considering a relationship with Clem at any point would probably make him feel like a huge perv and put him into massive denial. He’d insist she was like his sister and nothing was going on, even if there was obvious chemistry, because that’s just his character. You can’t write Luke to be a pervy, childish pedo, because it doesn’t line up with what we know about him up to this point. Luke would probably really beat himself up over even the mildest attraction and try to put it completely out of his mind.

Clem, on the other hand, might be more able to move past this because of the time she’s growing up in. Whether she ever had crushes on him as a girl, as a young adult, Clem wouldn’t be as reluctant to consider the possibility. To her, Luke hasn’t changed at all, she’s just learned to love him more and maybe in different ways.

Concern #5: Luke’s probably not gonna last the season.

Don’t remind me. I love him too much.

IN CONCLUSION:

These two have some growing-up to do together before one can even consider this a potential relationship. Most of what the Cluke shippers hope for is a good story and a lot of character development at the moment, and a relationship in a few years when Clem’s an adult. It’s not impossible. It’s not unreasonable. Things happen. Luke’s an awesome guy. Clem’s an awesome girl. I personally think they could be pretty happy together some day, as unlikely as it is that Luke lives to see that day. He’s a really nice guy with all the right stuff, and normally that means he has to die. I’m hoping that this time I’m wrong, but this is twd. No one’s ever really safe.

Cluke shippers see the potential for a great partnership on so many levels. It’s not as pervy as you might think. It could happen very naturally with time and age. Just like real life, people come together for all different reasons in all different circumstances. 

And most importantly, don’t hate on Luke. Poor guy doesn’t even have the first clue what us crazy fans have been scheming about. Appreciate him at face value! Telltale made him an awesome character. Hope this helps explain things!

REPOST: Cry Plays: The Walking Dead <- Deviantart

Because the last episode of The Walking Dead Season 2 it’s going to be out reaaally soon, I decided to post my fanart of ClemenCry again, but this time, without the logo too.

So… I hope you like it~

EDIT: So, I finally saw the end of this Season 2 and honestly… It was incredible and I didn’t thought that my fanart it will become so accurate for this final in some way…

I don’t know how Cry played the game without pausing it, because every decision was really hard. About the finale, I have to tell that the choices made by Cry, maybe they were the most realistic ones. And after watching the other endings, I’m happy that, anyway, the end of the game continues being epic.

If Season 3 happens, I want to play it on first hand. Thanks for the playthrough Cry.

I just saw a blog that used to (hasnt been updated in 2 years) role play 18 year old Clementine using pictures of a white girl, it says that the reason Clem is portrayed as white is because over time she has grown paler due to lack of vitamin D as she prefers to stay in colder areas. Damn that has to be the most inventive excuse for whitewashing a black character.
