    Re: LazyTown ships

    I love how the only ships are the ones that have no in-story justification (save for Sportacus/Robbie, but that's a bit of a stretch, and Milford/Bessie).

    What I'm trying to say is that Stingy/Trixie (for example) has multiple in-story events like kissing that are 100% ignored by tumblr and other people. Or like how Pixel has a total crush on Stephanie in Welcome to LazyTown.

    On the other hand, where's the justification for Stephanie/Trixie?

      The SportaRobbie ship is not new though. At the early start of GetLazy, one member here used to make fan videos with Sportacus and Robbie in a more or less romantic way that are quite fascinating to watch.

        I think it's yet another distraction from the actual show. Depending on the person LazyTown can become about Steph, bitch Robbie, hot Maggi, pedos, homos, memes, anime, video games, etc. In my opinion, we throw all of this stuff onto a towering heap of selfishness disgused as fandom. Instead of appreciating LazyTown the creation, we make it part our own identity.

        Do I think making LazyTown about two adult men is in some way more virtuous than making it about an adult man and a child? Nope. Sorry. They both do an equal disservice to an otherwise decent show whose sole moral element has something to do about healthy living. And these 'ships, taken to their furthest extents, are in direct oppossion to that end.

        I'm willing to lay out a defense of moderate Sporty/Steph shipping if y'all are willing to hear it. Not that it's actually shipping, but more just what I consider to be a part of the show's DNA.

          I have found the following Sporty/Steph themes to be present in the LazyTown television show. No doubt they're informed by my own prejudices and biases:\

          1. Shakespearean - The idea is that Stephanie and Sportacus are kindred spirits. Both are optimistic people wanting to clean up messes, primarily LazyTown. Sportacus is the power agent while Stephanie serves as his advocate among the kids. The character parallel comes from Shakespare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Oberon is king of fairies, Puck his shrewed little sprite applying magic to the eyes of sleeping people. Stephanie is sowing the healthy/active lifestyle among LazyTown's slothful residents at the behest of Sportacus. His wishes kind of shadow Magnus's own purpose for the show. Because Sporty and Steph are two halves of that same purpose, they mirror one another in the bing bang dance.

          2. Schwarzenegger - The idea is that Sportacus and Stephanie are surrogate father-daughter. Both are apart from birth families, needing companionship. Steph requires a strong paternal figure to protect her from harm. Sporty looks for an earnest fledgling to brighten his days. The character parallel is from Schwarzenegger's Commando. John Matrix is retired military, his young daughter Jenny his light. The girl becomes ensnared by a villian. Arnold rescues her from trouble in alpha fashion. With LazyTown's villian at work, Stephanie brings her problems to Sportacus (her rock). She counts on him for fatherly guidance & protection. He is always saving her. Their bond is unshakable.

          /I'm not going to go episode by episode, but examples of these themes are rampant throughout. Mostly going to be within conversations, dances, and saves involving the pair. Physical posing shouldn't scandalize anyone. I have even seen Oberon use Puck as a chair in one adaptation. Father-daughter embraces are also clearly wholesome.

            I don't like a SportaSteph-ship but I do find some scenes with the both of them adorable. Like in the song "Anything Can Happen" there was some friendly chemistry between them.

              I personally see Sportacus and Stephanie with more of a Father-Daughter relationship and not anything like a crush/romantic relationship

                    While on the topic of Tumblr, they also ship Glanni and Íþróttaálfurinn. It makes zero sense, since they barely interact in the play, aside from a chase scene.
                    IMO, "glannithro" is just "sportarobbie" with a Groucho Marx moustache on.
                    ech.

                      That's drawing from the plays, where they bonded after being locked in jail unfairly and escaping together, Trixie admired Stephanie's apparent mischievous behavior, and they got a song about never being alone as long as they had each other, and being best friends. They're also really close in the Christmas album. It's very easy to read into it and have it go further, even if it's not a common pairing.

                      I don't really ship per se but if the story's well-written enough I'll ship it for that story and go back to being neutral. I've read a LOT of good SportaRobbie and SportaSteph fics as well as other pairings, but my favorite kind of shipping stories are the ones that are more friendship than romantic or really get into the worldbuilding and care about the story, and aren't just about sex/kissing.

                        Milford x Sportacus is the only acceptable pairing.

                          I've never seen Milford/Sportacus (or Milford/Robbie for that matter) XD I have seen Milford/Bessie and even a couple Robbie/Bessie fics though, likely drawing from when Glanni kissed/had heavily implied sex with Stina in the plays.

                            They already beat you to that. (While not exact), there's a fandom for "jonsford" aka Jón Jósep Snæbjörnsson (Jonsi) and Milford.
