Can we just talk about something for a second?
So, I’m watching this amazing show called ‘Avengers Assemble’ and it’s so so great and rapidly taking over my life. But the fandom is TINY.
Like, stony is the most popular ship in the fandom and it has a decent amount of fandom content, but there are other great ships that there’s barely anything for!
The whole show is basically domestic avengers with some stony fanfic trope moments and a lot of character interactions. All of which I’m a slut for in fiction.
Like, interpersonal conflicts that get solved through communication and don’t overstay their welcome for the sake of plot? Misunderstandings that actually get talked about? Characters who actually make an effort to understand other characters’ perspectives? Teamates who are ACTUALLY FRIENDS that stick together for reasons beyond sheer convenience? Good shit.
Like, it’s meant to be a children’s show but it’s still one of the few shows I can find that prioritizes characterization, character development, and character relations over dramatic tension.
Although I think that if any characters in the cast were the main characters I’d say that it would be Steve (Captain America) and Tony (Iron Man) 〰️because after all they are the co-leaders〰️ the show is very much an ensemble cast. All the avengers get time to shine and although there are pair-ups that happen more often, throughout the seasons, there’s been a lot of really unsual pair-ups between the various characters.
The show is very character-driven, for the most part, and it really makes the show feel more genuine.
I love this show a lot but the actual fandom is, like I said, tiny and it is really rather frustrating because not only does it mean that this show is not getting the recognition that it deserves, but it means that I have essentially no one to talk to about it! Few people can match my passion for anything, so with the fandom as tiny as it is, I’m basically alone in my enthusiasm.
So um, if you’ve seen the mcu and aren’t impressed, or vaguely know about marvel, or don’t know about marvel, or are a huge marvel fan or are LGBT and in the mood for something pretty gay or are just a person with some time or anything few and far between, I EMPLORE YOU TO WATCH THIS SHOW!
Seriously, it’s pretty dang good even to my less enthusiastic family members.
I’d really like for people to discover this show because it’s so so great and I just know that it will make someone out there so happy!
