Was it a good idea to make this pairing canon?
Also, this is a Scooby Doo thread.
Not in my opinion, but it was cute for a minute or two, so that was nice.
Was making Velma into a huge bitch who demanded Shaggy and Scooby quit being friends worth her not being a carpet lesbian?
What if I told you after Shaggy calls her on being a psycho bitch, she turns into an outright lesbian with the show's closet lesbian?
If the writers had been committed to it then yes
But they seemed more in favor of.explaining why it didn't work rather than either not doing it or using it as a springboard for character growth
It was an okay idea.
>At first people weren’t sure, especially some of the changes and relationships we had with the main characters. Velma seemed to garner the most hostility, but if you track her storyline from start to finish, you can see what we were doing with her. We very specifically wanted to show a young, bright girl trying to figure out how she fits into the world. Velma is smarter than everyone, which makes it hard for her to be patient with people. She is also confused by what she wants in a romantic relationship. Over the course of the story we can see her figuring all this stuff out, and in the end making some decisions about who she is.
What does this mean?
Let's be honest, who hasn't ridden this bicycle?
>friendship/rivalry gets some focus in Scooby Doo movie
>Fred and Daphne get together despite barely interacting in the movie
Way to force stereotypes.
There's literally nothing wrong or even out of place about a heterosexual Velma.
Even Shaggy/Velma could've worked if the writers didn't decide to make her a clingy cunt and/or didn't turn Scooby into an equally jealous cunt.
Christ, bad as Velma was, Scooby was worse than Nigel Tufnel.
you know, going on /co/ every single day doesn't look as bad when there are people posting in those forums just as much.
though the "generalization" of websites really has made it harder to connect with people online in a meaningful way
I don't think that making her a lesbian/bisexual is only because she acts a certain way, but its acceptable since she hasn't shown herself to have significant chemistry with male characters, so the stereotypes make sense in this context (and also stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason).
Oh, we're just talking about Mystery Inc.
Again, wasn't fond of the writers and the shit they were pulling from "like, we can't let Scoob know we're dating" bullshit.
Scooby would be chiller than that, and I feel Velma would've been less of an attention whore as a result.
I'm pretty sure they only did that because the original show does it.
Even though Fred and Velma have more in common with each other than they do with Daphne and Shaggy. Who in turn also have more in common with each other.
That is true. They like playing Fred off as a dumbass these days, but back then, he was the strategist.
I could easily see he and Velma playing Risk.
They only made him stupid later because he looked like a jock, and to give him more chemistry with Daphne.
Honestly I felt that the lesbian thing was there because of people like us. Everyone kept talking about Velma as a lesbian since forever, so it was natural to expect at least one Scooby Doo show to depict her as such.
You have only yourself to blame.
I wasn't that angry about it though, not in the same way as these types of things usually make me.I guess it's just because I don't take lesbianism seriously.
mystery inc would be the best of all the scooby doo shows if they had fred be actually smart instead of just a trap-obsessed ignorant blond and without this awful shitshow of a 'romance' that had the potential to sink the entire group
I liked the idea but the fact they wasted so much time with Scooby having a problem with it for no real reason was dumb.
They should've just been an odd couple mostly for jokes with maybe some drama every now and then but that's it.
>I liked the idea but the fact they wasted so much time with Scooby having a problem with it for no real reason was dumb.
And then when Scoob gets a girlfriend Shaggy doesn't do any of that shit.
Shaggy is a true bro.
Daphne thought Shaggy was Fred, and Shaggy thought he was Fred. They were that high.
Holy shit what.
I didn't watch a ton of MI, but I never really like this pairing. It always just feels like Fred and Daphne are meant to be a couple and then Shaggy and Velma are just paired up as the leftovers.
which one? because daphne's only ever been set up with Fred.
Shaggy, on the other hand, has been set up with not only velma and daphne, but also two other girlfriends in the 90s movies. and that's not even counting the many villains over the years that have seduced him.
>Was making Velma into a huge bitch who demanded Shaggy and Scooby quit being friends
That shit happen because Shaggy was acting like Velma and Scooby can't coexist in his life. It was his fault that that happened.
