>>8694138 # The latest episode (Tweek x Craig is literally the title) was about how a bunch of Asian girls started drawing yaoi of Tweek and Craig and everyone thinks they're gay as a result. When they try to deny it, people just think theyre being closeted,so they fake a public break up. The entire town gets super depressed over it, so they decide to fake getting back together and just be a couple for the good of community.
So yeah, Craig/Tweek is straight up canon now and the SP slash fandom doesn't know what to do with themselves. Matt and Trey have said in the past how even though they don't like slash, the yaoi fangirls are most dedicated subset of their fan base and they appreciate them a lot. The episode was basically their way of saying "this is weird and we don't get it, but we love you guys".
>>8694149 >they decide to fake getting back together >So yeah, Craig/Tweek is straight up canon now
My facebook dash is going insane over this and I still don't get it. If they were faking the whole thing, how the fuck is it canon now? They're still not gay and still not a couple, they just faked it. Don't get me wrong, I used to draw Creek in my dA days, even. But I still don't see how something that was just faked is being taken as "canon".
I'm glad some creators are becoming all too aware of the power of fujobux/hype. I've since grown out of rabidly mashing dicks together at all hours of the day, but I definitely still enjoy it from time to time.
Retired fujoshit here, I'll try to take a stab at this: it's largely about characters and character dynamics. There is a funny world with a shitload of established characters and a web of relationships--it's very easy to play with scenarios in your head. Nearly all popular fandoms share this quality.
>>8694304 >There is tons of media with predominantly male casts, so what makes SP so special?
I'd need to see a list of these to judge for myself, but what sets SP apart from them is likely what I just said. There might not be a lot of compelling relationship dynamics.
>>8694149 See I took it as they were mocking the entire weeb fandom. "Japan turns people gay" That is true and not exactly something to be proud of coming from someone who's been gay since childhood. I may be looking into it more than I should but I wouldn't jump to assume they did the episode solely for the fans, if anything it's making fun of yaoi fans. It shows how easily Americans buy into fake shit, especially if they can profit from it in some way or another.
>>8694472 This show has always been making fun of everyone but this episode was mostly taking jab at the PC culture in more heartwarming way than previous episodes. Something weird comes from Japan and no one knows what it is but apparently it's giving the town its first gay kids which is "so cool and progressive" so no one cares whether they're really gay or now. Tweek's usually abusive parents become suddenly extremely interested in him but only because of his "gayness" but still don't bother to listen to him. Randy talks out of his ass because he wants to appear as progressive PC guy when he doesn't even know what rape of Nanking is and mixes all Asians together. People give them money and Craig who has always been the problem kid who that gets detention now suddenly doesn't get in trouble only because he's "gay". Kyle is the only one who has voice of reason and realizes that it's just some fantasy drawn by girls and doesn't really mean anything but no one listens to him this season since he's seen as bigoted jerk.
As for why some people draw and ship South Park characters this way, they're better written than most "bishonen" characters so why not, Butters is even cute as heck when you get past the art style. I don't get why people are so obsessed with Yowamushi Pedal characters either because they're ugly AND boring but I guess it's none of my business.
>>8694169 >>8694165 Because they take the faking it to the point where they're actually dating, not just saying they are and leaving it at that. They may not actually be gay, but they do become a couple and spend alone time together and hold hands and shit. It's not really inaccurate to say they're canon. Watch the episode.
>>8694472 Matt and Trey have known about the slash fandom for at least a decade and have been asked about it in a few interviews. Their basic responce is they think it's strange but appreciate the extreme dedication their slash fans have to the show. Plus, the epsiode made fun of it, but it wasnt mean about it at all, which they are with pretty much everything else. I think it's safe to assume part of it was for the fans, especially since they asked them to submit their Creek art for the episode.
>>8694383 I'm trying to find them, but Google is giving me only stuff about this episode and the one about the other Slash. The three I know of were all from before 2010 (my SP slash days were a while ago) and the nice one where Trey mentioned the dedication was the most recent of them. The first one was from 2004 with Matt Stone and his response was very indifferent, something like "never read it. Probably wouldn't like it, but I haven't read any so I can't say" That was from a fan QA on SP Studios.
>>8695373 As far as I know they refuse to watch it in the first place because it's "problematic trash". Really funny because the whole transgender arc in season 18 was actually trans positive but then again Cartman as Erica was your typical tumblr fake trans kid who did it just for attention so they found it offensive.
>>8694304 Because they like South Park and Rule 34 is a thing? Also, a huge part if the appeal is the creative freedom. Since in slash they're almost always in their late teens or early twenties, you have to think about what they would be like older (which isn't hard since the kids already are unrealistically mature for their age and have very strong and developed personalities) and you can have the story be about pretty much anything you want, especially since there's such a vast variety of character types.
>>8695375 I have a friend who reblogged a SP gif on Tumblr and lost 14 followers. It was a gif of Kenny sniffing flowers and looking high. According to one angry anon it was offensive to people who might have drug addictions. She wasn't one nor did she know any, but she figured it would offend them, so it was apparently her place to speak on their behalf.
>>8698250 >missing the point that was part of the point, putting yourself out there publicly means you're putting yourself out to anyone's opinions and hiding them or hiding from them doesn't make them go away. not everyone is going to like you and that's fine but you need to learn to accept that, love yourself anyways and not value yourself only off of others opinions. selfie culture is dangerous.
>>8698286 >these days Friend I hate to tell you this but it's been this way since the dawn of time. The only real difference is that now creators are aware of their female fans and their interests and will pander to them a little here and there.
>>8698286 >these days, any fandom for sports anime with predominantly male casts will be 97% fujoshi It's more like two decades, Surugaya even has over 800 Slam Dunk BL doujinshi listed on their website.
>>8698062 >>8698244 I used to be very big (at one point someone on Tumblr used to crown me the best cosplayer for Craig but they were my lazy go to cosplays. Just to keep this cosplay related. But the following group already knew who I was because of said pics so I was head canons in a way for several characters?).
I wasn't huge on my shipping but used to draw a big of Fanart so someone said I should explore somewhere other than DA. I stumbled across an RP group looking for a person to be Bebe. This is how I got a Tumblr actually.
So I applied, after reading that it would be a story based Rp. Right up my alley.
It was Facebook status essentially. The Kenny and Craig refused to communicate with anyone but each other. I didn't understand the pairing so I researched it to find they were legitimately going off that one episode where they held hands. The tags on photos were "fuck Creek" "Tweek should stay the fuck away from Kenny's man" "Kyle and Stan belong fuck Cryle ships".
The Rp group died and tried to move on; this same Craig kept following and would corner the Kenny into a relationship and then never post to anyone else. By then I was a mod and tried to do chapter activities encourage everyone to interact. I hate a hate chat on Skype dedicated to me for it. Run by the Craig.
I kept cosplaying Craig but for a while that character was ehhhh for me.
It's mostly the Craig lovers for Crenny that are more crazy I've found. But this almost killed my love for the show. I'm glad it didn't in the end.
>>8698578 Wow these spelling mistakes I apologise I'm on mobile.
I'll also add that a lot of people used to get hate mail about ships if they interfered with Crenny. A lot. It did simmer down when people started to rebuttle that in Pandemic Kenny is very vocal of his hatred to Craig but for some it only fueled their hate more.
