These episodes were boarded before she joined, if we're talking about the same person (they were apparently the first ones she did revisions on).
Moon/Toffee is like the only plot development so far that I feel might've been influenced by the fanbase in some way (Starco stuff like the Blood Moon Ball was being written into the show, by comparison, before the audience even knew about the show).
Not necessarily since I'm not calling pandering here; just I wonder if someone on the crew saw the art of Moon/Toffee having a sad backstory etc. and was like "hey maybe we could do that for real"
Into the Wand would have been boarded after viewers would have seen a couple Toffee episodes (and he was literally shipped with Moon from his first appearance), these episodes would have been boarded before S2 aired and Moon/Toffee was definitely a thing then as well.
It's totally possible for it to be a coincidence (of course someone who hates the royal family probably interacted with them in the past); just the timelines aren't as convincing as other episodes/developments that would have happened long before we would've known about the characters involved (ex. Eclipsa stuff).
I'm open for wherever they decide to go with it though despite not liking the pairing. Long as they don't get too ridiculous with it, but that's never been a problem with the serious episodes
