i was mostly talking early season, how their relationship was originally conceived
even if she wasn't munching bubblegum i don't really see finn and marcy hooking up as far as later season AT goes. not only because they interact less but because it's not as substantial - maybe they're drifting apart as they mature and that's fine. i have no idea what either of them would see in each other. say what you will about bubbline but it's straightforward and feels more natural as the seasons progress and not just because they have episodes dedicated to it. marcy becoming more vulnerable and opening that side of bubblegum is genuinely sweet and they still have a similar laidback vs. serious angle that works well. it also helps that they're both thousands of years old, what makes finn so special? emotional growth? they can bond over daddy issues? that's everyone in the damn show.
