when straight people get tired of seeing straight people on TV all the time and white people get tired of seeing white people on TV all the time, that might be a sign that it’s time to change things up a bit
making up your own fictional universe
creating an entire history for it
creating characters who have complex back stories
RESEARCHING NAMES WITH MEANINGS THAT CORRESPOND TO THE HISTORY AND UNIVERSE AND BACK STORIES YOU’VE COME UP WITH

He described himself as a “Professional Muse,” which caused me to laugh a bit. But he wasn’t smiling: “I give people guidance,” he said, “I’m going now to meet my first client of the new year.” I didn’t want to ask more questions, because some things are better left a mystery.

I love his face in that last one. It’s like “Am I frightened or turned on?”
Do you ever cry because the writers and producers of Arrow have actually recognised the chemistry and potential of a ship they never intended to happen and have abandoned the ship that was supposed to be endgame when they started because they and the fans had seen a better option, so now they’re just going for it instead of stomping their foot and insisting on dragging their original plan along.
Now if only writers and producers could to that with other ships (also non-hetero ships) as well.
Imagine how much more beautiful TV could be.
Glee did this, but in a way, to the extreme. They played off the actor’s chemistry and everyone ended up dating everyone. To play devil’s advocate, it did show how fickle high school relationships are, as they claimed. A notable example is that Sam and Kurt were supposed to be together, but the producers noticed Sam’s chemistry with Quinn instead, so they made him an ally and wrote in Klaine, one of the most beloved ships of all time and the strongest relationship the show was able to write.
I feel like this post is particularly calling out Teen Wolf for refusing to write Sterek (and maybe Supernatural), but I think it’s important to keep in mind that Teen Wolf DID do this. They wrote in Allisaac because Crystal and Daniel were dating at the time and Jeff thought it would be fun to try and write that chemistry into the show. The reason he’s not doing this with Stiles and Derek because that’s a gay relationship and he didn’t think of THAT first. He decided to have a gay character in the form of Danny. He didn’t mean to write a gay romance, despite how interesting the relationship would be. I’m not sure if it’s Jeff or the network but I’m convinced that Sterek not going through (or even getting more scenes together now that producers are aware of it) despite the unprecedented popularity is an act of homophobia.
I really don’t know why so many people keep (wrongly) assuming that the post I made is about Sterek. Is it because of my url (because obviously someone who has the word ‘sterek’ in their url cannot possibly be talking about anything ut sterek?).
I wanna reiterate, again, that this post isn’t about Sterek, or Destiel for that matter, although it certainly applies to them. Either way, we all know why slash ships, no matter how popular, no matter how great the chemistry, have no chance at becoming canon (hint: it’s homophobia).
I had another reply to this post saying that making a hetero ship canon wasn’t groundbreaking, and while it is true that non-planned hetero ships are far more likely to become canon, I think that blogger fails to realise how often writers insist on sticking to their original plan of having their romantic leads get together, and how often that happens to heterosexual ships as well.
The prime example for this is HIMYM. The writers actually saw and explored the relationship between Barney and Robin, which was far more popular and also just simply better than Ted/Robin in every aspect, only to then turn around and tear down years of work they put into character development, destroying everything they built in one episode, just because Ted Mosby had to get his trophy at the end, and that had been the plan from season 1 and they were sticking to it, no matter how illogical and stupid it was.
And there’s plenty of other examples. Not all of them are as crass, not all of them end up being endgame, but a lot of hetero ships get dragged along because of the writers’ unwillingness to deviate from their plans, despite a lack of chemistry. See for example Sam and Amelia from Supernatural (who did break up in the end, but whose relationship was dragged over an entire season although it was pretty clear from the beginning that their dynamic just didn’t work).
Either way, correct me if I’m wrong (I quite possibly am, because I’ve never watched either of these shows), but the same problem exists in The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl. From what I see on my dash, it’s taken them 5 or 6 seasons to realise that maybe the main characters (Elena and Stefan???) aren’t the best combination and possibly maybe exploring another relationship (Caroline? Is that the blonde girl’s name?) that has a good, natural development. And Gossip girl also ignored a popular (and more healthy) relationship in favour of a pairing they’d wanted to push through since s1.
If we’re talking about Teen Wolf, what about Lydia/Aiden? Like seriously, what even was that relationship? It was supposed to be a casual hook-up, but she continued sleeping with him even after seeing him murder her classmate, hooked up with him again one episode after telling him she didn’t want to be with bad guys. We got zero development for them and yet they still dragged it over two seasons, what even is that writing??? On that note, I’m not giving them cookies for going down the Allison/Isaac road, because starting to write a ship because the actors are dating is not the same as having a relationship develop out of organic character interactions. Chemistry between actors off screen =/= chemistry between characters.
I’m curious to see where they will go with Braeden and Derek - it’s blatantly obvious they’re trying to go for a Scott&Allison type deep romance (see the parallels in the 3a and the new mid-season trailer), but while I love Braeden, I felt like the flirting was pretty stilted. But hey, who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind. After all, I felt like Scallison was pushed too hard in s1, too - looking back, I can see they’re cute, but only because I have seen more of them. Upon watching it for the first time and having Scott go “I’d rather die than not be with her” in the second episode just made me shake my head.
These are just a few examples, but I think it’s pretty obvious that often writers have a plan in their head and stick to it even if it just won’t work. That goes for slash ships even more than het ships, obviously, ut even with the latter you often see them pushed so much from the very beginning that it’s hard to enjoy them, because writers specifically write these characters to end up together instead of letting the relationships evolve naturally.
So yeah, seeing that Arrow, who introduced Laurel as the pretty classical Superhero’s girlfriend character (and from what I heard only planned on having Felicity in a couple of episodes but liked her so much they promoted her first to s recurring character and then to a series regular) are willing to go with the flow and accept the natural progession of the relationships to the point of dropping the originally intended romance (without writing out Laurel) and having Stephen Amell say “Felicity is the only woman in Oliver’s life” and the previously pushed ships of Laurel/Oliver and Sara/Oliver “have sailed” and “we won’t be seeing them together again” [in a romantic way] is pretty damn awesome.
