So to begin, I really don't care that much about the Fionna and Cake universe. The two episodes we've had so far have been good in my opinion. I love the voice acting they've got for all the characters (Neil Patrick Harris and Donald Glover are awesome) but I don't take the episodes seriously or anything because they're not real. I just treat them as fun little episodes as a little side thing from Finn and Jake. Now, with that being said, I'd like to go into two of the characters that have caused some conflict in the fandom:
Again, love the voice acting, but a recent blog has caused me to see this:
"PRINS GUMBAUL HAZ SO MUTCH MOR DEVILUPMINT THEN MARSHIL LEE!"
I've been replying to these constantly but no one seems to address what I say. IN THE FIRST FIONNA AND CAKE EPISODE, PRINCE GUMBALL HAD A TOTAL AMOUNT OF SCREEN TIME OF ABOUT A MINUTE AND A HALF, INCLUDING THE VERY BEGINNING! Any development seen in the rest of the episode was all Ice Queen. He got a little development in the beginning of Bad Little Boy, but all that showed was that he was a snobby, uptight prince. However, this is probably just because of Marceline's anger towards Princess Bubblegum.
Another thing I keep seeing in that blog is:
"MARSHIL'S SUTCH A JERK! HE STOL CAEK END ATAKED FEEONA END TOID WIT HER EMOSHINS!"
(sarcasm incoming) Right, because in Marceline's first episode, she didn't take Jake, try to kill him (which by the way, she did bite him because Jake said, "before she BIT ME..." so even if she wasn't trying to kill him, she still intended to do harm), attack Finn, and kiss him on the cheek, only to confuse him further by later rejecting him. No way (sarcasm ended). Of course Marceline is so much better now and not just a jerk but she was equally as much a jerk in Evicted as Marshall was in Bad Little Boy and yet people still loved her, even in Evicted but almost nobody likes Marshall, except the fangirls who like him for all the wrong reasons. I'm not some sort of fangirl who thinks Marshall is "SO KEWL" but I just hate to see people bag on a character just because they hated the annoying fame they got at first and refuse to admit that the character doesn't suck now that they're actually developed. It's the same reason I defend FP.
