@ reylo vs j/ohnlock, I get what you are saying in that the situations are totally different. Not least because the sh*rlock fandom bullied away anyone who didn't believe in tjlc and this one bullies FOR believing. But my other (het) ship just got canonically turned into incest this week despite the ptbs' assurances that they were NOT related, and writers/bts ppl name checking our ship and faving our ship posts and seeming supportive/not ruling it out. All I can say is cautious optimism is safer
AW JEEZ SORRY ABOUT YOUR SHIP.
thanks for the concern but this IS me being cautiously optimistic. and honestly this is prolly controversial of me to say but if by some horrible accident reywalk is a thing and comes right the fuck out of nowhere in the plot my reaction is basically gonna be “well it looks like my reylo merchandise is gonna be a whole lot rarer and more valuable and my fanfics are gonna be even more Problematic lol” like baby’s first fandom for me was yugioh and that fandom is RAMPANT with incest ships that are hinted at in canon and no one bats an eye so i’m not that disturbed by it
but lbr if that were to somehow happen it’s gonna be disney who looks really bad for having stuff like this be approved official art, not me
