for all of those who asked for more modern/college au bubbline. if you expected fluff.. sorry
I think this video might interest you guys.
4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships.
But yeah, they have indeed dated before.
I still find it hard to believe that the Disney Channel can have a show that had a child with 2 moms appear, but CN can’t discuss a lesbian romance. For some reason extremely dark and nightmarish episodes are okay, but the lesbians will traumatize the childrens. And I think anyone over the age of 5 can tell Marceline/Bubblegum had a thing. It’s stupid to underestimate children, most aren’t going to give a shit if a gay relationship happens in their show and in this day and age most of them are aware that gay people exist. (provided they’re not raised by bigots)
And even if you’re weird and think kids can’t handle gay people, the show airs at like 7 pm. Most kids that will be watching TV at that time are on the older side anyways and have probably looked at the internet once or twice.
And for the “but oh mah gods I gotta talk to my kids about gay people!” oh horror of horrors you have to sit down and explain “some people like the same gender, some like the opposite!” bam, done. It would take all of 30 seconds. Not like you have to explain how gay sex works to a 5 year old.
