See this ship dear Readers?
Well, if you don’t know about this new series ‘The Burden of Truth’ then stop and go watch the six episodes already out!
Well, that is if you have a condition that I have, where I sometimes ship the wrong couple and that in the end ends up making me care less about the actual couple when things get rolling!
And lo and behold, yes, I did it again this time! I totally fell for the wrong ship and I just got burned so hard that even if the real ship is actually cute, I don’t give a single tick about it!
No seriously, I don’t care at all for Luna/Molly (The ship in the opening caps)! Yes, I know the possibility of Luna/Joanna happening, given the development later on and the age thing between the character are slim but damn it, there was great potential there! Seriously, there were vibes everywhere and when Luna was outed as a lesbian I was so ready for some serious drama later on when things pick up steam and she falls for Joanna and then even more steam were they to go through with the secret given the gay route!
But once again I gave these shows more credibility than they are actually worth!
American Canadian show to tackle not only a lesbian relationship with the main character but one with a much younger partner who later ends up being her step sister?! Yeah, like that will ever happen!
But damn it, the magic was there! The threads were there! Had they gotten the guts, and I believe I am not the only one, Luna/Joanna had the potential to steal 2018, and the year has started off on a strong start already! But instead we got that beta ship in Molly/Joanna! No seriously, I can’t even equate how so uninterested I am in that ship. I really don’t think I am the only one too. I mean no one has suggested this ship to me yet and we are already on episode 6 with those two having had a great deal of good moments already!
Now, of course I know the implications here but then don’t go teasing like that! And worse still the secret was outed in just a single episode! They threw out the potential drama with Luna still developing feelings towards Joanna since she doesn’t know but Joanna knows then even more material for better drama down the road when Luna finds out they are related…
Everything was there and yet all gone to waste…Where are Asian Creators when you need them? And yet another show getting dumped for lack of guts. This is 2018, I am not going to take every single bread crumb thrown my way anymore!
Have a good day…
