I remember this ship having some form of hopeful support during the first season, when people were already sick of the Wendy shit going nowhere, and Pacifica was a meme one note rich bitch character.
Then Roadside Attraction came around, and not only killed Candip, but it really just sort of killed my interest in any ship succeeding. Dipper came out looking worse. Candy came out looking worse. And the plot of the episode itself greatly cheapened the lore of Gravity Falls, mainly that there is shit just as supernatural happening hundreds of miles away from Gravity Falls, its no longer a mysterious town built over an ancient Indian burial ground or some shit, it's just wacky just like everywhere else in the world because somewhere in season 2 that knucklehead Alex decided he wanted to be The Simpsons. But I digress; point is, I ended this show not caring that Wendy gave Dipper her hat or Pacifica and Candy signed Dipper's letter with little hearts or whatever else the fanbase was taking solace in, because Dipper was a shit main character just like his sister.
