I think this video might interest you guys.
4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships.
But yeah, they have indeed dated before.
Can we also talk about official Bubbline art drawn by Natasha Allgeri, former character designer and story board artist for Adventure Time, and now Showrunner of Bee and Puppy Cat!?
the only “otp” i will ever recognize ever
You do relealize the same day she retracted it too
Wait what? Wow that’s kind of awful. The way these two interact suggest that they are much closer than they pretend to be, and retracting the statement canonizing their previous relationship status is like they are trying to cover up what is blatantly obvious. :/
I would prefer it that they are just friends who got pulled apart then them having a dating type of relationship it would only teach kids that the only deep rooted relationship you are allowed to have is with someone you are dating and that normal friendships doesn’t have the same up and down as intemant types. It would mean more to me if they was really close friends but had a falling out because of jellousy duty or other type of strains that falls on to a friendship.
How I see them is that they was like sisters at one point. Mercy is the older sister BP was the younger they played and what not for years but because Marcy doesn’t age and that she is immortal she doesn’t have to worry like PB .PB founded the candy kingdom and made it what it is today during this time Marcy felt left out and alone that her younger sister..Pb is aging slowly but surely she is aging and she has a kingdom to rule….
I have no issue with showing same sex partners but for this storyline it will have a bigger impact if it wasn’t a shipping issue that they had a falling out so many years ago.it will show how hard it is to keep a normal friendship afloat for some many years..
Do this think back 5 years ago do you still have the same group of friends or have you lost one or two that you wish you could get back??
You can have a strong bond with someone and it doesn’t have to be dating relationship..it could be a strong friendship…
The question of it being a close friendship or it being something more is not the issue that bothers me; You can be best friends AND be in an intimate relationship like this one.
The problem with her making a statement about their relationship status and then retracting it by saying it was just a joke is what is called “queerbatiting”, which is a very real problem in media today. What it does is dangle two individuals who are likely LGBT in front of the public, make very VERY clear hinting that the characters are in a same sex (or other) intimate relationship, and then say “oh haha sorry LGBT community no we were just joking” which treats the real identities of real people as a joke to be laughed about.
I am fine with Marcie and PB being in a close friendship. I am also fine with them being in a more intimate relationship where they are dating. I am not fine with someone working on the show making a public announcement that a childrens cartoon character may be gay and then treating their statement as a joke. It’s a huge slap in the face to everyone who is part of/supports the LGBT community and wants children to understand that who they are and how they feel is normal and acceptable. Her retracting the statement sends the message to children who are just beginning to explore their identity that who they think they are is a joke and unacceptable to show in the media, which causes confusion, shame, and even self-hatred or worse.
Never said you can’t be best friend with the person your with. But it does send that message that only people in that type of relationship can act this way around each other. Look at scrubs two straight males who has a bromance going on there is no sexualized hint that they might of dated or anything just two really close friends who are deeply bonded to each other. That what I see with Marcy and PB .
I don’t believe she was trying to bait anything I think she was just trying to get more hits about her book or whatever thing she was trying to push.also there have always been pretty possitive same sex couples on TV even if they never hint at it Bert and Ernie would be one of them…
It is a dawn of a new sexuality and acceptance now more then ever yes there are people out there that wants to push there objectives of what’s right and what’s wrong with this or that.
I really love AT more then a guy in there 30 should like a show aimed at a demegraphic half his age but it has great plot and great writing skills. It shows that there are more to life then the simple answers which they take on very skillfully. I don’t know if they will take it to that level with PB and Marcy and I won’t say I would lose something out of the show..but I would rather see a more family tied between them then anything..
With the hints we have seen with the show..Marcy 1008 I believe Bp would be somewhere between 1000 years old at max because we know the bubble gum mess that gave the can of soup to Simon wasn’t PB but her parents ( hinted during an interview and on the game)
So they are basiccly two friend from childhood not saying that friends can’t grow up and hook up but still I think you see my point
