“Adventure Time” Creator Reveals Marceline and Princess Bubblegum Once Dated
Adventure Time fan fiction/art creators who ship Marceline and Princess Bubblegum have just been completely vindicated! Turns out the duo did date! Awwwws! I love when opposites attracts.
Voice actor Olivia Olson, who plays Marceline, revealed at a recent book-signing for The Adventure Time Encyclopedia, that yes indeed-y, Marceline and Princess Bubblegum had a brief stint as a couple and this comes straight from creator Pendleton Ward himself. So it's basically canon, if you care about that sort of thing.
At the signing, Olson said she was talking with Ward, figuring out characater motivation and other kind of actor-y things, regarding a scene between her and Princess Bubblegum. When he said to her, “You know they dated, right?” *insert record scratch here. * Chorus of angels sing
But sadly, that doesn't mean there will be any on screen romance probably ever. Olivia said that she asked Pendelton this: ‘Are they going to do it on the show at all, or can we say anything about it in the book?” Pendelton's response? This sad nugget: "I don’t know about the book, but in some countries where the show airs, it’s sort of illegal." JERKS! Check out the complete clip below! And join me in mourning the love that will never be. *sadface
