Hey hey hey I saw ur post about Spot and Race never interacting and I just wanna say the reason they're so big is bc of the movie! They have Good interactions in that (like Spot nodding when Race says "ain't I pretty" in king of new york), and it just carried over to the musical (people have probably talked about this in the tags so I hope I'm not being annoying but the movie is so good and deserves more love!!)
omg yes! thank you for sending in this ask cause i actually wanted to address this.
so i made this post a while ago about how i was amazed that sprace essentially came from nowhere and yet it was one of the most popular ships in the fandom.
but then a ton of people reblogged and replied and told me exactly what you just said, that their interaction actually stemmed from the movie version (which tbh i’m hardly familiar with at all, i’ve only seen part of it and the musical version like 1719348 times lol)
so thank you to everyone who reached out to educate me!
and also if you click the link, another person also taught me that shipping sprace pretty much meant shipping race with himself since his real life counterpart and spon conlon are actually the same person LMAO so that was another great thing that came from this post.
and shout out to the people who pointed out that katherine and sarah aren’t even in the same newsies universe and a lot of y’all ship them as well.
moral of the story is the newsies fandom truly is a magical place and i’m happy to be part of it tbh y’all really are something special <3
