Let’s talk about this for a second okay?
(And yes I realize not ALL ship fandoms are part of this problem, but I’m sick of this shit so I’m using crossfire tagging method)
It should come as no surprise that Jared is getting/is going to get hate for this response. For some strange reason the rabid drama-inducing members of this fandom cannot seem to wrap their heads around the fact that romance has NOTHING to do with this show.
Supernatural is a story about two brothers and their struggle with the curse that is the everyday supernatural constantly knocking them down and destroying their lives. This show is NOT about two brothers fucking (which they’re not and never will), or an angel/human fucking (which they DIDN’T and NEVER WILL), nor is it about either one of the brothers hooking up with some girl god-knows-where.
It’s about TWO BROTHERS and their journey.
I don’t understand why the rabid/hard-headed fans won’t accept this concept. Supernatural is in the same ballpark as The Walking Dead: both shows revolve aroud survivors trying to make the best of bad situations (or an ongoing bad situation that keeps escalating) and learning to lean on each other through thick and thin.
Yes these shows experience romantic concepts, it’s hard to ignore a romantic sub-story, but notice I used the word “sub”, meaning it’s a branch-off of the original storyline. It is NOT the storyline itself.
So Jared specifically stated that this show isn’t about romance, so what? It’s TRUE.
He never said there’s never been, nor will there ever be, romantic concepts included in the storyline, just that the overall show is NOT ABOUT THOSE PARTS.
Get it through your heads that your ship DOES NOT make this show.
The journey of two brothers DOES make this show.
This isn’t rocket science people.
So stop bitching about his response. It wasn’t “dickish”, and it sure as hell wasn’t uncalled for. Jared and Co are getting tired of your shit, they’re not going to baby you, they’re not going to kiss your ass.
Get the fuck over it.
