I read a thread on Twitter, and I remember wanting to cast Kathryn and Nadine as Kabi and Kayi of Tibok, respectively, but I didn’t continue because I felt it weird to cast two women who are in a happy (I hope so) relationship with men. So if you happened to read Tibok, it was supposedly a fan fiction—that’s my confession. Maybe because Nadine gives off this strong and fierce personality, while Kathryn radiates meekness and flexibility . . . and I adore them both for being these young talented actresses. The personalities they show on TV match perfectly, I guess, hence the fan-made pairing of most people.
However, reflecting on it, I find it weird. Like, if I reversed this pairing thing, I wouldn’t want people to push Robin being partnered with Steve Harrington in Stranger Things 3 . . . even though its fiction. Do you get what I mean?
“Pero, ate, fan fiction nga, e!” Yes, I know, I know. But I guess it’s a personal preference. Like, I would read fan fictions about Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, an all-male K-pop group linked to an all-girl K-pop group, and other love teams who were already paired on TV, but I’ll have second thoughts on reading ones about two perfectly straight men, two perfectly straight women, gay to a lesbian (and vice versa), and ones who were not yet paired on TV (lesson on permutations apply here.)
What do you think? What’s your take on this? Curious lang.
