The Pearlrose Waltz

Problematic ships project: Pearl/Rose Quartz.

Pearl was created to be a slave. Rose started an interstellar war, for which one of the goals was liberating Pearl. They battled side-by-side, against their entire planet and culture, for the right to live in a free and equal society.

Their whole romance was forged on the front lines of social change! Not even the metaphorical front lines. The literal ones!

If shipping was some kind of contest to be the most righteous and progressive, then by any reasonable standard Pearlrose would be one of the finalists.

How on earth could this be a problematic ship? Knight who loves liege is an older trope than dirt.

I used to know -- in the sense that I could remember and re-state the arguments used in some hateblog, not in the sense that I knew any arguments that were reasonable -- but by now I don't even remember that much.

...I think it started with realizing that the characters had failed to come out of the war completely free of emotional issues, and therefore something something abuse.
