Yeah. And really you know i’m not that surprised, I’m just frustrated, because they choose to add that even though the show would have ended perfectely with Myka not dating anyone, but they went for it anyway, because that’s the casual romance shit every tv show pull out at the end, because they’re a television network and it’s a business, they do it for the money, not for the fans. And they’ll get their damn money for it.
And we knew that. We all knew that. Deep in our Bering and Wells shipper hearts we knew. I came to accept that Bering & Wells would never be canon, because how could they be? How could they be in today’s society? There’s still people complaining about the fluid sexuality thing in Star Trek, there’s still people complaining about Xena and Gabrielle, about The L Word, and don’t get me started on Calzona or any other gay ship.
And the thing is, Bering and Wells is not like the other ships. Joanne and Jaime are on our side. They both clearly stated that they wanted Bering and Wells together and that they were playing their characters in love with each other. It’s there, it’s not like Swan Queen where there like “what? swan queen? HERE HAVE MORE MASCULINE LOVE INTERESTS” or Rizzoli & Isles because that’s a fucking joke. And you know, I think I prefer it that way, because the fandom does everything better, we built everything, and that’s great. Having a fandom as great as we have and our ship not canon is WAY better than having a canon ship but a ship mocked and treated as a joke.
What annoys me the most is that they’re going to add a romance arc into an already reduced season. Eddie said there were 12 episodes stuffed into 6. And YET they add another thing, a thing that is 0% relevant to the show because that’s not what this is about, it’s never been a show about who is going to sleep with who, it’s a family show, it’s a show about friendship, about family, about love, about A FRACKING WAREHOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE’S VILLE IN SOUTH DAKOTA FILLED WITH GOD DAMN ARTIFACTS, NOT ABOUT WILL MYKA AND PETE FINALLY BANG AND RUIN 4 SEASONS OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND A BROTHER/SISTER RELATIONSHIP.
So yeah Pyka will happen and that’s a bummer for 90% of the fandom, but we still have our imagination, we still have tumblr, we still have Jo saying “Myka will always love H.G”, we’ll make our own canon, because that’s what we always do and we do it perfectly.
Now I’m not a Pyka hater. I won’t say you’re a idiot for shipping Pyka, because I respect anyone’s ship as long as you don’t come and talk shit about my ships. I just don’t ship them as a couple. They’re just my #1 brotp and they always will be, I love their relationship as a brother/sister one, and that’s it.
and honestly having myka and pete kiss is just going to give us more material to photoshop jaime onto it so i don’t even care anymore i’ll enjoy the season and erase all the pyka moments from my memory
