I'm hit or miss with rushed romance... some of my favourite ships are massive slow burns, Steroline, Bellarke, Emison, Ronmione etc. But then I have some ships that were dating from the beginning or got together super fast.

April, you love Titanic though... they knew each other for five minutes and everyone calls them soulmates.

True, but movies are different. There is only so much slow burn you can do in a movie without a time jump.

I should also add that insane amounts of chemistry can draw me in, too. For example, Michael and Maria get to know each other in one episode and kiss in the next. But those actors literally sizzle on screen, and impulsivity and the tendency to act on emotion is a character trait for both of them, so it makes sense.

I would say I prefer slowburns as it gives us time to appreciate and love both the characters and get to know them as individuals but at the same time I'm a fan of skam where you get 10 episodes to tell a complete love story so... I agree that it does depend on the chemistry and how it's handled but slowburns are so much more impactful because you get so invested and it's painful in all the best ways.

Though with Bellarke, I'd say the burn is a bit too slow.

I listen to Skaicast (it's my fave the 100 podcast) and they made the point that sometimes you do have ambigious couples and will they/won't they and that's fine and that's fun. The problem with Bellarke is that in every sense except spoken word, they're not ambigious? We keep trying to tell ourselves "lower your expectations, this could mean nothing" but it's not what they're showing on screen. At this point it's just plain unrealistic that not more people call them out on their feelings and it's a honestly kind of a disservice to any of their other relationships that they'd just accept this as normal. Like, I don't hate Echo (but I'm scared to mention her here, don't see this as bashing. It's a genuine concern) but if my boyfriend was this hung up over another girl, I'd have questions no matter how stable or strong our relationship is. If this is a conversation that happened off screen, it's one that we do need to actually see because it's just making all the other characters look oblivious or just way too accepting of this "weird relationship". At this point, the writers are just ignoring what literally everyone can see but no one speaking out about it is unrealistic and yep. (Summary of my own feelings ft. Skaicast podcast )

Mood.

Though I waited 7 seasons for Emison and it was totally worth it

Another one where I went "Well, it's just never going to happen, is it? Stupid."

I totally agree, Mel! If my boyfriend was so hung up on another girl, I’d take a step back and be like, “Okay, time to re-evaluate.” Which is what I hope Echo does (it would earn the character some respect, too), but I’m lowering my expectations for that big time since we only have 4 episodes left now. Sigh. Maybe next season.

Becho won’t break up, Echo will die and Bellarke will happen in S7. Bellamy won’t cheat... not his style. At least I hope he won’t cheat because I hate cheaters.... my dad always cheated on my mum and I’ve been cheated on so if The 100 made one of my favourite characters of all time a cheater that’s gonna mess with my head

I know Bellamy cheating won’t bother most people but I have a personal issue with it so I’ll struggle with it and be very conflicted.

I’d rather Bellamy left Echo for Clarke.

You'd think Echo would die over a break-up? With death there's this need to grieve though. I mean they've been dating for six years, let's all remember that Clarke has a girlfriend for a couple of weeks/months (?) and people expect her to still be grieving... sooooooo, I'd really prefer a break-up.

I'd love that for Echo, but yeah, I don't know if that's happening.

I’d prefer a break up over death too, if Echo dies I’ll be devastated

But they haven’t shown any sign that they’re gonna break up besides Bellamy’s obvious feelings for Clarke... I honestly don’t know how it’s gonna go down.
