muccamukk: Wynonna makes a disgusted face. (WE: Ugh)

I need to rewatch season one, probably. I should get the DVD.

I'm just really invested in the OT3.

Normally with a show, I'm fairly come and go on canon ships working out, obviously it's very nice when there's gay ones and they go well, and it's even nicer when there's gay ones and it's troup soup with a happy ending. But normally I'm like, will they get together? I hope so? I guess? (Phryne and Jack being a possible exception for canon ships.) Mostly I just hope for a minimum of aggressive stupidity.

And then my usual response to love triangles is A Plague on Both Your Houses! Become a Lesbian!

But this show, man. I'm going to be REALLY upset if Dolls turns out to be a jerk and Wynonna picks Doc, or if Doc dies and she picks Dolls by default, or whatever stupid reason is brought up to shuffle one dude off and make her choose the other one. Not because I'm tired of stupid love triangle logic (which I am), but because I really want her to end up with both of them. There's no reason she couldn't. They're both hard core into her enough to be okay with it (Doc certainly, Dolls... needs work but I can see it). Wynonna publicly does not give a shit for conventions, and is nuts for both of them. I FAIL TO SEE A PROBLEM.

(Plus Dolls and Doc seem to have taken up flirting, and when their backs aren't up about the stupid love triangle, they genuinely get along.)

I know I won't get an actual triangle, but we could at least have a Dolls\Wynonna/Doc? Right? That's a thing you can do on weirdo horror westerns set in Calgary?

This show is going to break my heart, isn't it?

Or Dolls/Doc and Wynonna is busy with the kid! That's fine too! As long as it's not stupid.

Yes, I was very happy with it all right up to Dolls' little tantrum. Ugh, please don't go that way, show!

FWIW my friend in the IRL canon OT3 who ships WayHaught thinks you have great taste in ships here.

Man, this is the kind of thing where I'd actually be in favour of people leaving a gentle hint or two to the showrunners about it. "But why not both?" makes PERFECT SENSE!

This show is going to break my heart, isn't it?

You poor panda. <3

I am 100% on your team in this! For once, resolve a love triangle the REASONABLE WAY, tv!

I may not watch the show, but I understand all about feeling invested. There's really nothing quite like it, is there? Hope it ends well for you. :)

That's what my best friend says all the time--that the second she gets invested, a show is doomed to cancellation. I tease her that that's why we don't watch any of the same shows, anymore....

I only just started season 2, but I'm with you on the OT3. Maybe they can go the Leverage route, where they don't spell it out but it's there for anyone who wants to see it.

Okay, I didn't realize I hadn't actually watched this. I thought I had, but I hadn't. I'm most of the way through the first season, and I kind of love it. Mostly I love Waverly and Doc and Haught. Still, it's fun--and I totally think you're right about the OT3. It should be an official thing.

I AM SO WITH YOU IT AIN'T EVEN FUNNY! I assume you've seen 2x07, Everybody Knows, but just in case:

The ep laid SUCH good groundwork for an OT3, really -- Dolls' speech about the Doc; the Doc's oft-displayed respect and affection for Dolls; Jeremy shipping them very hard.

Hmm, that last fragment...never mind.

Because this is 2017, Emily Andras, and the type of off-beat show you describe, we can hope. The narrative certainly supports both of them -- Wynonna needs all the help she can get, mentally and emotionally and physically too. She may be the only one with Peacemaker, but goshdarn, there's a lot of problems in Purgatory. ;)
