AKUXBLOSSOM OFFICIALLY CANONLadies and gentlemen, friends and foes, etc:
We are gathered here today in honor of our precious babies, to celebrate a triumph previously unknown to our kind. Yes, the small but devout followers of the cult of Akublossism can now savor the sweet taste of satisfaction knowing their wildest dreams are at hand. I speak of absolution, my friends. I speak of the glory of the massive and indestructible ship we sail, and our conquest of the turbulent waters of the internet to spread our gospel to every fandom-shore.
I speak of endless possibilities, or more specifically, ONE possibility that has been acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
Some of you may be aware of IDW Publishing's new endeavors with Cartoon Network properties. Some of you may even be aware of one such project, Super Secret Crisis War, a work that includes both Aku and Blossom in its plot.
Long have we awaited this day, and at last it has come. Today may it be known that when the disbelieving world looks down upon us as fo
In light of the new development I decided to post better quality pics and info....
What we have is the trope, Terms of Endangerment.
For the linkphobic:
"No matter how informal people are (or say they are), there are some forms of address that are simply inappropriate between two people if they haven't developed a personal relationship that merits their use: pet names (like "Snookums" or "Honeybunch") and terms of endearment ("my dear", "darling", "honey", and the like). Now, add in stalkers, obsessive villains, or powerful enemies and an otherwise inappropriate pet name becomes downright creepy. Another term along these lines that more indicates frustration than any additional creep factor is "buddy," which when used between strangers often indicates that a fight is about to break out soon.
It implies a non-existent closeness, or that the addressed somehow belongs to the addresser. Even if the one using these endearments doesn't mean the target harm, there's an undercurrent of wrongness in the way the addresser thinks and acts that makes them seem mentally unstable and dangerous. (Unless it's just an act designed to irritate or distract the enemy and get him off his game.)
Usually, the nicer the pet name is, the worse the fate in store is. A form of Casual Danger Dialog, and a menacing variation of Flirting Under Fire. Generally a "milder" form of I Have You Now, My Pretty. "
Also, Sweetpea is a VERY creepy pet name for Aku to be using towards Blossom here....if you know what those flowers are, and what they generally symbolize
This isn't the only scrap we have, though:
And this gem from Jack, who has clearly never seen the fandom:
It is a good day when crossover crack gets Pandering To The Fanbase. We don't actually know if it's pandering but HEY WHATEVER STILL SUPER COOL <3
