I figure we should have an AT thread ready in case Stakes brings the goods
I wonder if all the episode was a lot of subtext or is just a strong friendship.
I translated some stuff with these two if anybody might be interested in typesetting: safe.yuriproject.net/res/4121.html#16893. I'll probably do more at some point
One of the VAs says it's canon and the creator says "We can't say anything, CN won't let us say anything, so you didn't hear anything from us."
Nickelodeon wimped out with LoK, so maybe CN will take the positive publicity from it and try to be the mavericks with the first gay characters in a major kid's show, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Technically they are. What with Steven Universe gaining a lot of notoriety and being the gayest cartoon ever and also having a married lesbian couple in Clarence. But that's Clarence, so...eh...
heard the fandom was pretty intense with a bunch of obsessed people creating hateblogs for a fanartist who didnt draw characters the way they wanted them to. fans make me automatically keep my distance from a series.
Understandable, but you're kind of cheating yourself out of some pretty cute and well written lesbian content. Just do what I do and distance yourself from all the tumblr people, I can guarantee liking the show won't make you a bad person like them.
If the thread still floats on Monday or Sunday I'll post some oc fan art
So, as said on the SU thread here, Pearl (one of the main characters) is not 100% gay, she is 1000% gay, and it seems that loves big asses; her record so far has her fusing (read: fucking) with a seven-foot chubster woman (with whom she is still madly in love, despite ChubTub being- for all intents and purposes- dead), a midget chubster woman, and a seven-foot woman with a square afro the size of a small child and one of the biggest cases of Blackassitis in the entire show.
And at one point, she has a threesome with the last two.
You forgot to mention that the Afro lady is made up of two really tiny lesbians and is a literal walking gay relationship. Also, how a tiny green lady wants to get it on with the purple midget lady, out of respect, but also repressed sexual desire. And everybody wants to fuck the 10-foot tall, four-armed ponytail woman. Especially yourself, if I do recall correctly.
That's so great to hear. Regular characters who just happen to like girls instead of guys really should have been more tolerated by now. They're not disgusting abominations like trans.
Watching Go With Me while thinking that PB and Marceline are exes actually has make it a lot more sense. Trolling her with Finn, and then after the snotty reception she fuckin let wolves loose in her room. Doesn't that sound like a pissed-off psycho ex to you?
Also I saw a tumblr post by someone who got to see the first couple episodes of Stakes and they said that
PB told Marceline, ‘When you die, I’ll be there to put you in the ground.’ Nice little parallel to I'm Just Your Problem and "I'm gonna bury you in the ground?" Immortal gfs who think about burying each other. Romantic.
On that note, shit I hope they at least get angsty about Marceline wanting to be cured. They just started getting along again, and now she wants to be mortal and die? How could PB agree to that so easily? Like I know PB is a cold scientist but we know she's different when it comes to Marceline. You'd think she'd be really hesitant to let someone who's been in her life for probably centuries leave her alone in immortality.
>and now she wants to be mortal and die
I wish writers would stop using this annoying cliche. I want to see immortal beings that enjoy their eternal life along with other immortal beings.
Varmints. I think it's the second episode of S07.
Thank you, anon.
Have a pic.
So I'm hoping they will make a spin of that dumb cliche where it's usually "mortal realizing immortality isn't that great and proceeding to enjoy the time they have left", it will now be "immortal realizing mortality isn't that great and proceeding to enjoy the eternity they have
with their qt girlfriend".
Yeah I prefer the barbarian-ish wild hair as well. Probably because I associate unbridled power with it thanks to Madara from Naruto. Godamn I want to like that anime but it just leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
So hears something sweet. Get it? Get it... I'm sorry.
>Naruto. Godamn I want to like that anime
Try Bleach, onee-san.
A tall glass of it should solve all your problems. I'm sorry. I actually agree with you, but I just really hate the big three shonens.
From the first episode of the Marceline 8-episode miniseries that will be airing this week, "Stakes". The first 4 episodes were leaked online. You can watch them on watchcartoononline or find a torrent link on /co/ or something
For one they act like they've had some bad brakeup earlier in the series. Then the "What Was Missing." Episode was pretty gay.
"I'm Just Your Problem." Song was pretty-- full of subtext
Not to mention another ep PB just wakes up and smells Marci's shirt and goes and opens a locker with a pic of them inside. Also the ep where she gives the sky witch the shirt for sentimental power and it's powerful as hell.
And now the Varmits ep when they talk about old times
Yeah those too. Pretty much they put it out with some pretty heavy subtext to make it obvious to adults or teens who pick up on it. But unlike Nick, they don't want to come out and confirm it. It would be a better fucking couple then KorraxAsam though. But like any viewing company-- they worry about loosing viewers or their parents not letting them watch it and loosing profit.
They seem more like they went through a bad brakeup or almost got to that point of dating and PB seemed too busy with her kingdom and responsibilities at the time for them to be together. And Marci seems to maybe resent PB for it. But PB gets defensive about having to do all her responsibilities and then they start fighting. So either they haven't confessed yet but want too to each other and it's pent up or they just want to get back together. Either way they seem to really want each other and they make a cute as fuck couple. Plus being immortals and being in each others lives for so long you wouldn't really want them to leave would you?
>For one they act like they've had some bad brakeup earlier in the series.
Well, sorta. They really only had one interaction prior to "What Was Missing", in "Go With Me", which was pretty ambiguous at the time in terms of what it meant.
>Not to mention another ep PB just wakes up and smells Marci's shirt and goes and opens a locker with a pic of them inside. Also the ep where she gives the sky witch the shirt for sentimental power and it's powerful as hell.
Those are the same episode, simply called "Sky Witch" if anyone wants to find it.
There is also some good Bubbline stuff in the comics, such as the last two story arcs in Ryan North's run.
I kind of got peeved that PB called Marceline her best friend. Honestly at this point its still seems PB only see's Marceline as a friend.
Everyone says just because she fell in love with Finn when she was 13 that the time he becomes 18 she'll fall in love with him again.
But damn Bonnie really makes Marcie happy, her and Simon.
I just want Marceline to have something. I know Finn had it tough too but he's still young. Marceline maybe still look young but god she really isn't.
AT just give this girl happiness.
To be fair though, after SU it looks like they really dont give a fuck anymore.
Last I'd heard the writer said they could be considered secondary canon (ie canon except in places where they directly contradict the show). They may have reversed course on that at some point but I don't recall.
>But damn Bonnie really makes Marcie happy, her and Simon.
I kinda wish we'd got more flashbacks about... er, pre-Finn times. The Mushroom war, how Marceline and PB first met, the start of their friendship, etc. Fun random stuff is fun, but sometimes I miss the days when AT had some semblance of plot.
>PB's tears dripping into her eyes as their faces are inches apart
THe most interesting parts of a children's cartoon named after its main character are the episodes where that main character isn't around? Well stone the crows and knock me down with a feather, I'd never have seen that one coming.
Well. You gotta just say "fuck it" and appreciate that they aren't pussyfooting around with it this time. But I do think they're trying to get the people who left for Steven Universe back, and nothing else. But at least we get this.
nope. Seems like a natural progression of the PB/Marceline relationship.
"Can we do this all the time?"
"Later we can. All the time."
Bonnibel has a picture of Marceline on her mantel.
As far as I remember this is the second
callback to that song (the first one being when Marceline literally "drank the red from your (Bubblegum's) pretty pink face").
So on a scale on 1 to 10,
just how dyke-ish is her outfit & hairstyle?
it is not so much about wanting to die, what she want is stop being a mess up kid, like she was when she turn, Marceline star the plot realizing that being a vampire hasn't let her grow beyond a moody adolescent using violence and hedonism to face all the abandonment is her life.
Actually the theme in the Mini series is a pretty melancholic one that even though everything change in essence everything is still the same and the same things will keep happening immortal or not
She's been pretty emotional this season, she also
broke down and cried in front of Marceline in "Varmints".
That's what I mean. I don't know it just seems when it comes to either her kingdom or Marceline she just starts to seem more human. I've never seen her this raw with other characters even the main one.
"I dreamed about you while I was in my poison coma." "-you were still nice and pink." [Maceline starts feeling hungry]
PB's has often shown to be more relaxed and open when she's alone with Marceline (because of their long shared history together), it stands to reason that PB would more prone to showing Marceline her vulnerable side than anyone else.
I didn't it mean it like its totally there. I still think its ambiguous. It just seems like she may. But again it could just mean she sees her as her best friend and is just not used to them being friendly again. People can be like that.
To be honest I think this was just queerbaiting, since like hell they would have the balls to make it canon. Bryke took that.
I did, bubbline fun aside, i liked it overall.
The status quo ending was a bit annoying but it was pretty obvious that was going to happen from the beginning. Overall i would give it a 8/10
Hey, so maybe you lot can help me - I remember seeing a comic somewhere, with PB going down to some vault which turned out to be sustaining Marceline in some kind of suspended animation. In the last panel PB said something like "I'll find a way".
I remember it being super pretty, in a kind of realistic style, but didn't save it and regret it now.
Have some pics in the meantime.
saw this thread, thought of this wall paper. enjoy!
Yeah, after the comfy little homestead they were going to live in together in sweet domestic bliss got blown the fuck up ;_; Oh well.
But, I always liked to imagine it was them two at Marcy's house in the future in Graybles 1000. PB must have still been around to look after the mobile candy kingdom, but she wasn't inside, while Marcy's house was the only other hospitable looking place nearby. Maybe she wanders the world in her gumball giant guardian, doing sciencey shit, stopping by Marcy's cave on occasion for a visit. Maybe it's just the two of them left in the desolation and all they have is each other. Together forever and all that. /headcanon
It sucks that they still couldn't outright say it, but at least they slipped it in really indirectly
M: No it’s not fear, I know what that feels like. So maybe it’s love? Jake: I love you Bonnibel
M: Yeah. Me too Bonnibel.
Well there's the fact they dance around it so hard mostly, making it as obvious as possible without explicitly confirming anything. And olivia olsen said they couldn't do it because AT airs in countries where it's controversial or illegal, even though that's shaky with the whole twitter fiasco.
SU airs in the same countries. There is also the fact that other staff members have talked about Marcy and PB in a very different light. Honestly I just think they dont really know and care enough and are just throwing bones here and there
Its not like any of us know its gonna happen. Its all queerbaiting. They did this whole series just to get SU fans back. Problem is if Marceline is not in future eps, then they lose the fans again.
It's obvious that there are some boarders that aren't fans of it. But they just had a whole little mini-arc about their relationship since varmints, so it is something they've been planning and talking about among themselves. So why not go all the way unless there's something stopping them?
Even if one them just mentions at some point that they like the other that way. Something to confirm the nature of it
And SU has the "agendered space rocks" getaway card
Well there's at least like 3 new boarders that are pro-bubbline. Maybe part of why they took them on was to continue this aspect of the story. Although I'd just like to see more marceline in general too
Feels bad pirating their big mini series. maybe I should buy some bubbline themed merchandise.
>Bonnie getting all emotional when Marceline got hurt
>Bashfully twiddling hands while inviting her to live in the castle
>"We get to hang out together forever"
I think need replacement /u/-goggles, mine just exploded.
Don't overload my second pair, nee-san, my goggle stash is dwindling already.
Fuck, tumblr now thinks Marceline is black.
I can't wait for all the cool new fanart.
Well, it took them six full seasons to get to that point.
Some fandoms got the blackification from day one.
Yep. PB accidentally shoots Marcy off into space and she makes it her mission to retrieve her. Some flashbacks, angst about their relationship, pretty cute and shippy overall
"Shippy" doesn't even begin to cover it, mate.
Also I think Marcie cut her hair cause its a sign of change, like how Korra did it in the 4th season. But seriously I honestly think the writers looked at LOK for some of the stuff in Stakes
Blue glowing Avatar Marceline
It's canon in my head. That's good enough for me.
Not really, but I've lost all hope of ever seeing them together in the cartoon, so, eh, I'll take it.
Why does Bubbline reminds me of these two so much?
Is it the hair?
You can download it here but you'll need to download a program that can open cbr files: http://newcomic.org/tags/Adventure+Time+-+Marceline+Gone+Adrift/
The comics are their own canon, and they get as far as holding hands in this one along with a lot of other really nice moments. But no "I love yous" or anything
I think it was said that all comics exist in their own continuity. So, basically, there are two canons - the show canon and the comics canon.
But it's been... at least a year or two since I've heard that, so maybe things changed since then.
Basically the comics can or cannot be viewed as canon, it's meant to be up to the reader. The only exception is if something new in the show ever contradicts something that happened in the comics, in which case that comic storyline will no longer be canon.
Source: saw some anons talking about it on /co/ and they linked to either some comic or storyboard artist saying the above. You can probably ask over there if you want a direct link.
Is it just me, Or are they really pushing them together though. After watching Varmints and Stakes. Its kind of hard not to think they have feelings for each other. This isn't an anime, blushes in cartoons usually means something in a romantic or meaningful sense. I mean look at all of Finn's blushes.
God this whole thing reminds me of the Korra blush in reunion.
It's hard to tell when you're possibly delusional, but I think when looking at it from an objective view they are definitely trying to show their relationship is or was more than just friends at this point, and now possibly going farther that what it once was or is now.
To be honest I've never saw them as a couple but after watching Stakes and rew atching Varmins, Sky Witch and WWM. It just kind of clicked. Bonnibel is incredibly different when she's around Marceline. It took her at least 6 seasons to open up to Finn, but with Marceline she just breaks down. She's more relaxed around her. I don't know its just with Marceline she seems happy.
Marceline dreaming of ageing together with PB as an old lesbian couple confirmed. <3
Can I call the ship canon? Please?
Fecal matter is unable to think intelligently like other things that have enough mental process to identify themselves as a certain gender. With this knowledge the only person who could describe the sexual identity of fecal matter would be a human who has this concept. If you want to believe the fecal matter is not homosexual that is fine, but it is possible someone else might think different. But be aware that fecal matter can not have a sexual identity.
As Andrew Tran points out, given most of the rest of the Tarotic trumps have clear analogues in the miniseries, Marceline and Bubblegum most likely represent the Lovers (hence going out of the way to state things like >>1918410)
Wrong on two counts, Opal is at least fifteen feet tall (she's twice Garnet's height, if not more), and I do not want to fuck her. or even make love to her, because I would end up having a heart attack if she was to so much as give me a sultry look, let alone give me permission to have sex with her.
I'm doing this to myself, I feel no remorse, no regret, only self-inflicted pain, and I love every nanosecond of it almost as much as I love Opal herself.
Funny thing is, despite Afrolady being yuri incarnate, still isn't as gay as Pearl. Purple and green midgets together is also pretty fun too, though.
However, this is about Adventure Time, not Opal-senpai.
Wait, is my mic on?
Also, not requesting images here, but I would love to see something to help cement (fuck, even just tease) Snowbunny. Fionna x Ice Queen is my favorite AT ship, and they even gave a little bit of a hint for it with how stalker-y Ice Queen was towards Fionna.
Also, those in favor of me drawing Ice Queen ramming an icicle strapon up Flame Princess' ass, say 'aye'.
I've been meaning to get back into this, stopped around when season 6 started for no real reason.
Does Marceline continue to be best girl?
I believe that was the idea - >>1919061 was objecting to Tran directly associating the Moon card with the High Priestess card, as he does more explicitly in the review for Take Her Back. Given the High Priestess is pretty much always depicted with an image of the moon however, I don't think it's that much of a stretch.
they are shown to have feelings for each other, but it could be interpreted as just very close friends, but there is so much ship teasing like this from the comics.
Honestly, seeing them dress fancy at all is awesome.
I'd love to see Ice Queen and Fionna get into a swordfight over who gets to dress as Tuxedo Mask, and then the two of them decide they can both be Tuxedo Mask, since it would help accentuate how gay they are for each other.
Not sure whether I like Fem!HotBuns or Snowbunny more.
I love the teasing to be honest. It manages to get just a little bit gayer every time and I'm savoring every moment.Like whether it's the comic or the show things keep one upping themselves
I figure they'll milk the teasing for all it's worth, and wait till the series is about to end before they go all way with a confirmation, if they do
I love pb's face here as she shows off her yoga moves to marceline
the comics are official parts of the franchise and are pretty cool canons on their own. This ship is everywhere in a number of different comic story lines, and the show hasn't been really subtle either. Just means it had a variety of ways to explore it's development. I think having a few different official works support it makes it's place in the general canon more concrete
Anyone remembers that one short comic that was I think in some anthology about Marceline literally giving heart to PB ?
anyway I don't think you could consider them JUST
>very close friends
ever sine What Was Missing I mean that song was gay as fuck
>I'm gonna drink the red from your pretty pink face
>-Marceline! That's too distasteful!
I guess that's a good way of seeing it. Its still surprising that they are heavily implied in all the merch. Even Finn x Bubblegum don't have that much stuff.
Question what did you think about Bubblegum's behavior in The Pajama War? I thought she was holding back a lot compare to how she acted with Marceline in Varmints and Stakes. Lots of people claim she was flirting with Finn, but I didn't see that.
so last night I had a whole lot of energy and a whole lot of free time, so I scoured the comics and episodes and cropped out panels and took screenshots of every moment I thought was cute and/or relevant to their relationship, then sorted it by release. I think I have all the development of the ship within the franchise here, from their first appearance together in Go With Me to brains with mouths exposing Marcy's secret desire to tell someone something. It's nice to look at the big picture of it all like this instead of just focusing on the show or whatever. The whole thing's been steadily getting gayer and gayer over the years, with different writers and stories each taking it a bit further than the last.
I figure I should share my night's obsessive efforts with someone, so here /u/ go. Just ask if you can't figure out where a comic/episode a pic is from. 459 pics total
ohh, I thought when you picked "link without key" it meant it wouldn't need one or something. Never uploaded something to mega before lol
Yo, thanks, dude.
Did we ever figured out what she said to herself here? I assume it starts with "Marceline"
So while coming across one of the covers of Marceline and the scream queens. I noticed that it looked very familiar to No Doubt Tragic Kingdom. Bubblegum is in the exact same spot as Gwen Stefani's ex boyfriend and bassist Tony Kanal
He's the reason she wrote don't speak. Which is her thoughts about the break up they had.
I do believe you ripped this from reddit or Tumblr or something.
I would like to add this image though comparing Carrie and Corin of SK and PB. Carrie and Corin were once a couple.
>also, I won't take credit for figuring this out
Boob windows are awesome, just saying.
