Have the Swan Queen fandom really started raising money to make a shitty documentary on how their ship is never gonna be canon? Guys, I’m all for LGB and stuff but this is beyond a fucking joke. I AM SO FUCKING DONE.
If you would look into the academic work of any fandom scholar (personally I recommend Henry Jenkins or Lisa Lewis in this matter), you will find that ‘how their ship is never going to be canon’ is the base of most, if not all, fieldwork on lgbt relationships represented in television.
There are many reasons for this, especially the interest in these topic due to non-visibility on tv in history. To explore something by a ‘shitty documentary’ (or a ‘shitty research’ or a ‘shitty book’ or a ‘shitty PhD in Audience Studies’) is an actual thing people do for living and brings new information into the still new field of Media and Fandom studies.
I recommend you read Henry Jenkins’ (a leading academic from 1991 when he first published ‘Textual Poachers’) blog in general, or maybe just posts like these where he talks about how ‘his ship’ is divided by a glass and what is represents: http://henryjenkins.org/2008/05/the_glass.html.
Or maybe, you know, actually do your research before calling someone’s work ‘shitty’.

regina is concerned with the writing
why did no one tell me earlier the official once upon a time book is basically a swan queen foreshadowing fanfic??
