I love that the biggest blockbuster of the summer had a fiercely platonic relationship between the two leads. I think that’s really important to see in movies.

…that doesn’t stop me from shipping them. Broken assholes with trust issues is kind of my thing, and I couldn’t resist.

I'm not alone!
I am so totally shipping them so badly! I totally agree with you that it was great to see the platonic relationship between them, but I would totally be okay if in a sequel there was more.

For Thespian-Hoplite, because he went through so much work just to prove me wrong and is undoubtedly visiting the comments:

cool story, bro

Romance between Furiosa and Max was ever intended.

 

"More importantly, she is not there to serve out a romantic storyline between her character and Max."

 

"You can't say 'the stakes are this high' and you're literally in a driving war and we cannot stop because 'if we stop, we die' - and then have them pull off to the side of the road to have sex, like fall in love, because then immediately the anxiety has been relieved for the audience.

 

"Unfortunately some film-makers think you can have both. What was great about this is that the luxury of a love story was not where we were, I mean they can't even talk to each other."

 

"The luxury of a love story was not where we were... We never even talked about it-- no one said 'maybe', we never had to fight against it. It was always going to be two warriors on par, starting off with very little respect for each other and ending up with a massive respect for each other.

P.S. if I could critique this just a tiny, tiny bit, I'd say that this is perfect except for the fact that Max's hair is so neat. It was pretty messed up in this scene in the movie, and a shade or two darker, I think. You don't have to fiddle with it, of course, but I think it would make him more recognizably him.

Thank you. God, thank you. This is LITERALLY the first Max/Furiosa fanart I've seen. It's been so long since the movie was released, and I've not seen ONE piece of fanart with them kissing, or doing anything shippy at all. I felt as if the internet was broken. This is beautiful, and I love that the traditionally sweet/whimsical red string of fate is a friggin' cannula here. That. Is lovely. (And I feel exactly the same way about them as a pairing -- great that the movie didn't go there. But my heart will.)
