wildeblackseoul replied to your post: also, from my very few days in this fandom, the way sterek fans talk about danny kind of grosses me out? like he’s a stepping stone showing that the Show Can Do Gay and therefore can do sterek and that’s the height of his importance. i don’t mean it in a ‘DON’T BE GREEDY U HAVE ONE GAY PERSON WHY WOULD YOU WANT MOAR’ way but it strikes me as they basically view him as worthless aside from a possible symbol in favor of white gay dudes and WOW.
yep. his existence is only to be used as a gate for sterek plausibility, and i’m sure many sterek fans will ignore danny as a whole if sterek becomes canon
I was about to mention that. That it seems to be this generation of fandom’s thing to insist your ship will become/is canon. I know I mention a LOT that I’ve been in fandom a while but when I started that wasn’t really a thing. You had a lot of intense shippers sure but not this huge majority who thinks the only way to have a valid ship is to have a canon ship.
