    Anduin could be bi lol... he just doesn't want to admit it. Are you seriously telling me that all those nights alone sweating upstairs in the inn in Pandaria that Anduin didnt try stroking Wrathion's tail even once? I find that hard to believe. I mean.. they played chess with each other. Those that play chess with each other fuck each other. It's a rule.

    You know there were some Thrall x Jaina and Maiev x Illidan threads in the past, Jaina and Thrall thing fell apart in Cata mostly (but that's mostly because of Kalec and her hatred for the Horde) and Legion revived the Maiev x Illidan thing (That i always found strange cause they hate each other, but well people say that between love and hatred there's just one step)

    Note: Like many other ships that were based on not much, we got this one (at least they interacted with each other for a whole expansion)
    Yeah...and the ones that get really sexualized are generally played by actors who're 18 and over

    This is taking young teens and forcing them to be something they're not.
    Hope, the greatest power of all!

    Anduin is over 18 as of Before the Storm and Wrathion isn't a whelp anymore, which is what people used to say was objectionable on his end.

    Just saying.

    While you are taking a rather extreme take here, I do think its funny people don't seem to ever realize bisexual people DO exist.

    Again, its still weird people jump immediate to graphic sex on this topic. Its a trope that comes up in the topic of normalizing homosexuality all the time, people against that jump to the most graphic thing they can to try and pretend its the norm.

    No, I'm pretty sure that punch was because Wrathion really fucking deserved it.

    No, the point is that these discussions draw oddly specific depictions of gay teenage boys. I am fairly confident nobody at Blizzard is trying to subversively plant a gay teenage sex storyline in WoW.

    Which seem to be done far more by the people against the idea of Anduin and Wrathion being together than those in favor of it. Those in favor of it seem to just be like, "Oh that's cute" while the ones against it are like, "GAY SEX!"

    I find that popular Wow-ships (and ships in general) are based on this principle. Are they entertaining or compelling on screen when they interact? Do they fit a trope that many still find satisfactory? It'll be shipped. Meanwhile many of the few canon relationships have the chemistry of soggy ramen. Which is probably because they have a bad habit of literally inventing a nobody character to fill the role of wife or husband.
    Don't think I've heard the term "chemistry" be applied so broadly before.

    As characters with a shared narrative Maiev and Illidan play well off of one another, sure. I would generally only 'ship characters who had romantic chemistry with one another, so aspect of their personalities that struck a chord, as it were. Illidan and Maiev don't have that kind of chemistry. Neither do Kalec and Jaina, to be honest; their relationship always felt a bit tacked on (which is likely why it ended as unceremoniously as it began). Arthas and Jaina had a lot more chemistry insofar as that went, although that didn't amount to much either, given the givens.

    Well that's how it goes for all "teenagers" centric series, no?

    And noone is forcing anyone to be what they are not.

    Again, regardless of this, i reiterate, i do agree that the idea of Anduin wooing a guy is nothing more than a ship that some people like, that was even pointed out by the author that it was not a thing

    That's only counting racial leaders and not dealing with some of the assumed developing romances (e.g. Talanji and Rokhan, Thalyssra and Lor'themar). This number increases dramatically when you factor in other NPCs (there are multiple questlines dealing with tokens of affection or reuniting couples, even love undoing demonic corruption in the case of a satyr in Legion).
    My point is how many couples are really front and center in the story? Malfurion and Tyrande for sure, Alleria and Turalyion and that's about it - the rest hardly show up in the story. WoW isn't a story about couples

    If two characters in WoW aren't trying to kill each other, they must be fucking. Even when they do try to kill each other, they fucking as well, but angry.

    Anduin is just being a pert little tsundere.

    Honestly it's better that way. Tyrande being baited by Xavius with the "Tyranduuuuh I need you!!" "I'm coming my love!" was probably the most triggering thing I witnessed in World of Warcraft. I avoided leveling in Val'sharrah on my alts just for that Tyrande Questline. And then Jaina x Kalec is just a self insert by (Knaak I think?) to fuck Jaina. Nathanos is a self insert by Danuser to fuck Sylvanas. Romance in WoW is just an excuse for whatever writer to self insert themselves to fuck the hot elf/human girl and it's cringe as fuck whenever they try.

    Pretty much. I guess we should be thankful most writers on the team understand WoW isn't the platform for it and stay away from it. If we didn't have Danuser we'd be golden

    And that goes for pretty much every friendship between two guys

    The ship never had any basis in reality whatsoever and the fact that people are in this level of denial even after Anduin expressed this level of disdain is just amusing. It's never, ever going to happen. Accept it now.

    I agree, this is also how I feel about it. I’m legit surprised at the hostility in the thread. Like it’s okay if it’s just wrathion is a flirt and anduin isn’t interested, too.
