The aroace flag was elected president of flags!
Round 3, Match 3: Mobei-jun (The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System) vs. Ice King (Adventure Time)
listen. this is not a good book. but he and his boyfriend are very good characters. he is a powerful demon lord and eventual northern demon king with ice powers but also teleportation powers. he's built like a fucking fridge and wears his robes half open just cause so he's got the boob factor. he's hopelessly in love with his pathetic human servant who saved his life as teens, who he used to be an asshole to and who is also secretly the author god that created him in another world. but he's allergic to communication and his bf is too kinda so they havent rly talked about it. theyre both insane but they like it that way. and he's even autistic
Ice King Propaganda:
He's ice. He's freak.
Submission message for Steve and Bucky: Does Stucky count? Steve and Bucky from Captain America
Submission message for House and Wilson: I would like to submit Drs House & Wilson from House MD, please :3
Additional propaganda: House and Wilson, in addition to the obvious gay/bi queerbaiting, has the added layer that it is an intentional Sherlock Holmes homage, and like all Sherlock Holmes expies House is (at least a little bit) aro-ace coded and his relationship with Wilson (aka Watson) is also queerplatonic-baiting in its reference to one of literature's greatest and most iconic QPRs.
I don't think people appreciate just how gay house and wilson are!! understandable if you haven't seen the show but here's my contribution to the propaganda

ROUND 6: KERMIT THEE FROG (muppet) VS MIETTE (football)
Round 3, Match 8: Naydra (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) vs. Icepick Joe (Goncharov)
Ice dragon. And he’s a peace-loving guy! What else do I have to say?
Icepick Joe Propaganda:
Submission message for Rachel and Quinn: faberry from glee!
Submission message for Charles and Erik: Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr (aka Professor X and Magneto) from anything X-Men
Additional propaganda: Okay but Cherik (Spot 12) is so incredibly queer I can’t even—
Like straight up they have a kid together because Professor X siphoned off Magneto into his brain and then they did a mind meld thing and Onslaught came out of Professor X like Athena from Zeus.
There was a recent story arc where they defeated Onslaught and the guy who defeated Onslaught straight up said something like ‘Professor X and Magneto aren’t doing anything because they have a soft spot for their murderous joint kid entity’. Please bear in mind that this guy is also straight-up Professor X’s son and a telepath.
Also this comic book cover is literally the gayest thing I have ever seen.
Magneto is a bara daddy for 0 reason and Professor X is supposed to be dead, yet looks like a twink having the absolute time of his LIFE.
Also in a marvel comic specifically for celebrating canon queer couples there’s this stunner of a panel:
Why is this not canon again???
God, the matched Hellfire Gala outfits are making me insane in the membrane.
For context here’s literally THEE couple of the X-men universe at the exact same party:
They’re complimentary— even they’re not fucking MATCHING. For the love of god just let the old men kiss holy shit.
