okay, so usually I don’t make analysis posts but I’m getting tired of the hate shit in the bubbline tag. I feel like alot of people who dislike bubbline are people who don’t understand why so many shippers consider it canon, or they don’t understand the subtext in general. So here’s my analysis on bubbline and the subtext
note: I often make typos so forgive me for any mistakes
1. Let’s start with Go With Me, the first time Marceline and princess bubblegum interact. During this episode Marceline (totally on purpose) sabotages finn’s attempts to get bubblegum to go to the movies with him.
Now I’ve heard bubbline-deniers say “well she did that because she wanted finn to ask her to the movies”
alright, then why did she act all “NOPE” when finn finally did ask her out?
And just so I won’t get any hate from finnceline fans like I did last time I made a bubbline analysis, I’m not saying this to hate on any other ships in any way, I’m only saying it in support of Bubbline.
It doesn’t make sense that she would try and prevent finn and pb from going to the movies together, and then reject finn’s advances to ask her out, unless…
2. What Was Missing. Oh yeah. This episode is the foundation of bubbline.
-provacative song lyrics directed at the princess
-Deep, genuine, heartfelt song lyrics directed at the princess
-Marceline being distracted by
bubblegum’s pretty pink facebubblegum staring at her
-marceline showing distress over finn’s affection towards bubblegum
- and then showing relief when bubblegum doesn’t seem to return finn’s feelings
And then of course
Finding out at the end that princess bubblegum’s GREATEST POSSESSION is a rock t-shirt that Marceline gave to her. Her greatest treasure isn’t her crown or throne, or anything from her kingdom, not even something from her best friend Lady Rainicorn; but the one thing she treasures the most was a simple gift from Marceline, the girl she was acting resentful towards during the entire episode.
Now, this is the part where many have said, “oh they were just good friends”
Now let’s talk about why they might be more than “just good friends”
