I always see so many people exclaiming that the creators of the show said that they’re not going to make Klance canon or that it’s not going to happen and I’m just
First of all, the creators cannot say anything to spoil the show, so if they have to lie; they will. I mean, they were the same people who literally said Pidge was a boy. But what I’m trying to say is, they can’t say which pairing will or will not be canon, to anyone. Only they know themselves.
Except a lot of people seem to be getting this notion from this interview quote right here:
Joaquim: We also try not to be overtly affected by what popular opinion might be.
Interviewer: Well that’s good, you wanna tell your story
Lauren: We’re working in animation our schedule is so far advanced that even if people shipped Keith and Lance, we couldn’t go back and change the story and be like: ‘Now they’re in love!’
Joaquim: We’re already years past that story line
Please tell me where in this did they ever say that “Klance wasn’t going to be canon.” ?
I understand that this could be taken out of context, but even though the interviewer in general touched on the topic of Klance, this could honestly be applied to anything that happens in the show.
Whether popular or not, the creators literally cannot go back and change the canon content of the story line. They’re saying that just because Keith and Lance are a popular pair, that doesn’t mean they’re going to cater us. And that’s true, they can’t do that, they don’t want it to seem like fan service because it isn’t.
But the creators never said that the story line wasn’t already written that way, they’re just saying, in general they won’t change it to the likes of the fandom, we will not influence their decisions. They’re technically saying, Keith and Lance could be in love, but we didn’t go back and make them in love for you guys, it was already apart of the story, it was already going to happen. We have no control over what they do, we don’t know what they’ll do, so as fans we shouldn’t act so entitled. Everything is planned, so we either take or leave what will end up happening.
But people need to stop spreading this false info around or even twisting their words. Read it as it is and take it as it is. Canon or not, let’s just enjoy the damn show.
