I just have a question. I was wondering why you did this pic. From all indications, there is no evidence or anyone saying specifically that they are lesbian lovers. I checked websites and everything and looked over summaries and synopsis of the episodes. I'm just curious as to why you and others do this, that's all. I'm not flaming or anything, just.....why? Thanks.

Well there was that (at least one) episode that was rather infamous pretty strong subtext in that direction, and then someone that worked for a CN youtube channel was fired for suggesting they might actually have had history, I've seen shipping pairings built on less.


Thing about it is, GLBT people have historically had so little representation in mainstream media that they're clamouring for something, anything, so they maybe read a little more into awkward writing that's meant to communicate friendship, or shipping-baiting by some more cynical creators, or actual intentional GLBT subtext snuck in there by subversive creators that try to do whatever they can without causing the conservative media overlords bringing the hammer down.


Just a guess, but I think the reason you offended the creator was that you implied (or seemed to) that they were drawing this entirely because of bandwagon-jumping and pandering.

Oh, I see. I guess that might have been wrong on my part. You see, from what I understand on this "fandom" of yaoi (boy/boy "love") and yuri (girl/girl "love") from these girls is that it looks like a sort of "popularity" contest and a bit of bandwagon. Most of it seemed to me like a "Look at me, I can do popular yaoi fanart better than anyone!" kind of thing. I don't understand the fascination, I don't understand the appeal and the clamoring for it by these girls, but obviously it means something to them by the way they claw onto just the most obscure hint of gay relationships. What, I don't know. I am in no way judging or bashing homosexuals or their lifestyles...everyone deserves respect and a chance at a decent life, and no one should shame them, I was just kind of confused at this being hinted at in a cartoon show like this and why it was blown out of proportion. Still, I was glad to apologize to her and hopefully to let this matter drop.

I don't think it's really blown out of proportion when there's a show-stopping song number that involves one character's hidden feelings being aired out in order for stolen personal treasures to be recovered and the day to be saved, seems a fairly obvious parallel to the "closet" and being in or out of it, especially when they relate to the motivation of "wanting to suck the pink out of your pretty face" (I don't remember the exact quote so yes I am paraphrasing, but it's still pretty similar) Vampiric red-fixation or not, that seems more than just confessing friendship, not to mention that one of the precious treasures retrieved by the efforts was a T-shirt given as a gift by one girl to the other that the recipient wears as pyjamas, this all seems pretty blatant to me.

To be fair, there is some bandwagon jumping and attention getting in the community, but a bandwagon has to start moving somewhere for other people to end up jumping on it, and the concept of "gaydar" isn't entirely inaccurate, as gay people tend to be more observant of that kind of subtext since they're actively looking for it, whereas (more intolerant) hetero people tend to actively go out of their way to rationalize other possible explanations.

Maybe actually watch the episode in question and decide for yourself? Then once you know where the community is coming from, you can either find common ground or respectfully agree to disagree without others getting the impression you're shitting all over the mere notion that there's something there. I believe it's called... "Something Missing" Or something to that effect.

You know, in a way, I have to agree with you about the bandwagon jumping. It's true some actively look for it while others try  not to make a big deal out of it, and everyone has their right to their opinion. I have seen that episode, and what I got from it is that they did have a very close bond, and friendship that obviously meant a lot to both of them, but they had a falling out that they are trying to work through. To me, it's up to the audience to see it as a lesbian relationship or not, there's hints for either both forms of relationships. Many young girls and women have very close, emotional bonds like that, but not really lovers. I've read articles on it and such on that episode. But I really don't want to make this into some sort of rant or debate. It's a cartoon show meant for everyone to enjoy, and that's what I take it as. While Adventure Time isn't my fave show, others love it, especially kids and I'm glad for that, nothing more, nothing less.

Mm, and there's nothing wrong with it being up to interpretation, it's certainly valid to view it in a number of different ways in this and many other instances, they certainly have some sort of history, but what it is can certainly be debated.

I mean it'd be nice if it was out-and-out said that they used to have a romantic connection and maybe still have feelings for each other, because this is 2014, and I think we can have openly GLBT characters in all-ages media, if you're okay with hetero relationships being portrayed to kids at exactly the same level of chasteness, then it'd be a double-standard to say otherwise.

Because after all, it is okay to be gay, and suggesting that children exposed to the very notion that homosexuality or transgenderism exists are going to suddenly turn away from heteronormativity doesn't really hold up, if those kids really are swayed by recognition in the media that gay people exist and that they're not evil, it's because they already have those tendencies, and that media is just helping them realize that's a valid way to live as well, which frankly we need a little more of in today's culture, with certain sectors insisting that a heteronormative nuclear family is the only valid option, which risks alienating people and forcing them to repress their true selves, that has an actual proven affect of warping people's development, internalizing a self-loathing and delusory level of denial that they then project outwards to cope.

If that's how you truly feel, then more power to you. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I'm just glad people can talk about this in a civilized way and everyone can agree or disagree without being degraded. That's what being a respectable person is about.

I just like them :) I also ship Draco & Harry, but that doesn't mean that they are actually a couple on the books. You know. Fangirl stuff. I hope that that answer your question! :)

Oh, I see, thank you for explaining. So it's mostly about the "SQUUEE! Aren't they cool like that? Look at me, I'm drawing them that way, aren't I cool too?" kind of thing. I don't mean to offend you or anything, I was just curious. I just didn't get or understand why these characters are drawn that that, that's all. It's your right, of course, if you wish to see them and draw them in that situation, I was just asking. Have to give the fans what they think they want with these pics, right? Anyway, best of luck with your art, okay? Keep it up.

Oh...I'm very sorry, if I had said anything to offend you and such, I apologize. Like I said before, I was just trying to find out the fascination with this, that's all. I just don't see it. I don't know the "way you should answer", but I truly meant no offense. Please keep up your artwork and best of luck.
