I swear I don't have any issues with Grant. His amazing chemistry with Candice is one of the reasons why I fell in love with WA.
I think he has chemistry with both Candice and Melissa. The difference is that with Iris I have this desire to see them kiss and have intimate romantic moments while with Kara I enjoy watching them be adorable superhero buddies
I wasn't attacking you I was just bothered by the brother sister thing why do friends have a brother sister vibe?
I was kind of making an statement where someone said some people ship them? the whole brother sister vibe just annoys me. the sister brother vibe and the when the lead star has more chemistry with the men then the lead actress gets to me too. I maybe should of put on rant page.

So you are not a fan of bromances I take it. Saying they are like brother/sister just means they act closer/more than just friends but are not in love with each other in a romantic way.

Adding you, FireQueen!

It's okay It's just an expression that annoys you. I like their friendship chemistry and ship them as friends.

The whole "The lead actor has chemistry with everyone but the lead actress" makes me raise my eyebrows in suspicion. It's impossible for one actor to have chemistry with everyone but his leading lady. Honestly, when fans use that expression are actually bashing the lead actress

I always took it as a slam towards Grant but now I see your point.

Maybe it's a slam towards Grant if they say that he doesn't have chemistry with any female but he's okay in scenes with males.

The whole "Grant has chemistry with everyone but Candice" is 100% a slam towards Candice.

I've read some bad things people say about Grant when it comes to chemistry in scenes with women. They body shame him or see him as asexual. Some do the same with Carlos. It's pretty gross

yes it is and I agree

I wrote mine as they see him with chemistry with men the whole Bromance thing goes over top they make Barry so in love with them Coldflash is the worst making Barry femine and so in love its creepy and annoying. and I just see it as hate towards Grant. but you said chemistry with all so I understand your point. I never will agree with her and Eddie though even though like Grant she works with anyone.

I think Grant is one of those actors that have believable chemistry with most of his costars. On top of that he has the acting chops to work that skill whether there is a need for a platonic or romantic relationship. At least I can see it being differentiated between different relationship he has on the show.

I do think the strongest one he has with Candice and it's sort of on a undescribable level, it's so organic....with him and Melissa and how they play Barry and Kara when in the scenes together I see this skill of his being utilized on a friendship / siblings level and I like it because its natural and not forced.

And also, I don't SHIP Barry and Kara, I just said I like the sibling like dynamic that they share. Plus I only use SHIP word when it comes to romantic relationships. In all honesty I actually barely use that term....

People ship Barry with a lot of characters and I see nothing wrong with that. It's for fun, and most people know they're just crackships.

To me, it is all for fun. Isn't that what entertainment is supposed to be? For fun? I think people take things too seriously. I don't mind the crackships of Julian/Barry and Captain Cold/Barry. That's the beauty of individuality. We are free to ship whomever we want. It always intrigues me with what the fandom comes up with actually. Amusing to me.

How is Captain Cold and Barry creepy and annoying? That comment can be taken the wrong way. I am a fan of many gay/lesbian couples on TV and it doesn't make one character 'feminine' or 'masculine' because of who they love.

I actually like ColdFlash and Barry/Julian as crackships I can see the appeal The shippers also do their own thing and don't harass the writers acting all entitled and begging them to make their ship canon...

crackship is one thing. I also took it as noway they would ever put these two together. captain cold and Barry is creepy because Barry always a lovesick idiot and Captain cold is the knight in shining armor boring. also on most shipping things they make Barry the creepy stalker. I would so hate how people write him now, I stopped reading shipping stories, I should have not posted anything.

Right! They are just having fun with the idea of the possibility for those relationships.

That's fine. Most of them won't happen anyway. I let others have their fun though.
