So.. first of all I’m sorry for my English. It is not my first language. 👀
I was thinking about this interview and I was thinking about the hate I’ve got (not only me but many other fan, too) just because I ship fanon couples (SwanQueen, SuperCorp..)
Sometimes it happens that I say that I ship SwanQueen and people replied with “it is incest” or “it is not gonna happened and Emma and Regina are not gay” or “You know, you ship SuperCorp and it’s gross, they are just friends, why they cannot be friends, you just want a gay couple in every tv show you watch” and so on..
Okay look at this. Amber is saying that Willow/Tara relationship was beautiful and it was not about two women, but first of all it was about two people who fell in love and it was just normal. Both happened to identify as female but they were two people in love with each other and perfect for each other. They treated each other well, as Amber said.
This is why I like SwanQueen or SuperCorp. They may not be canon but they are formed by two people who are good for each other and treat each other well (we all know that Regina was Emma’s enemy at the beginning but we also know that Regina is now a better person and cares about Emma). I can feel the chemistry between Emma and Regina and I can feel it between Lena Luthor and Kara/Supergirl. I can feel that it is normal. It could be normal to see them in a romantic relationship and not because they are women (I can tell you about my het ships. I have many and even slash ships), but because of the chemistry and because they have so much in common and they support each other. They saved each other. I can see the potential.
So if you wanna tell me that you don’t like SwanQueen because you prefer Emma and Regina with someone else it’s okay. Same for Lena and Kara. Your choice. If you wanna tell me that you don’t like them because you don’t feel any chemistry it is still okay, you can ship them just as friends. If you wanna tell me that you hate Emma or Regina, that you hate Lena so you are unable to ship them with anyone.. then fine.
But don’t tell me I ship them just because I like watching females making out or because it is incest (many ouat relationships are weird.. look at Rumple who makes out with Cora and then Zelena and then the Evil Queen. Look at Hook who makes out with Milah who was Baelfire’s mother and Bae was Emma’s first love and Henry’s father, while Hook would have loved to be his “adoptive father” and what a mess is this show).
It does not make sense. Sorry.
