Is SoMa cannon in your opinion? What evidence do you think makes it so? Just wondering, I've been in a dispute with a friend who says it's not cannon because they didn't kiss.

soul-dwelling answered:

No, they never kissed—in the anime, in the manga, in the video games.

Although, when both were under the influence of Kim’s magic and Spirit’s magic potion in the audio dramas (…long story), Soul was attracted to her, and she was attracted to him. But that was magic, so it is not absolutely clear how they feel for each other and rather problematic to read shipping into those instances.

lastdeathscytheandfriends:    albarn-maka:    Frick    She calls it sex appeal.  Then in Chapter 1: Lust, of The Book of Eibon, her form is his.  If you tell me that she isn’t in love with him like he is with her and their either too shy to say it to each other or are already doing the do off-screen/page, then you’re lying.

'Cause it's not like she ever noticed his sex appeal.

So they have only held hands.

In a completely platonic fashion.

 wodalzz:    YES OH GOD YES.

Just ichirakus:    if you ship them and you know itwell,reblogpla epicminion:    happy (almost) holidays!!  i should be doing my homework… like it?

veridae:    Here, have Maka wearing Soul’s jacket and the two of them getting weirdly touchy-feely during a bickering match to brighten your day

ic.

Obviously.

vengy117:    Maka asking why Soul wouldn’t call her an angel because she jealous of Ox and Kim’s relationship  The only proof for SoMa that anyone needs

And she wanted him to call her “Angel” like Kim’s boyfriend does—in a completely non-romantic way.

While they are getting pummeled by a Venom reject grafted onto the back of a traumatized child, she decides, hey, now’s the best time to dance with her boyfriend sweetie weapon while they are dressed all fancy after the coward chickened out and left her dancing with her papa.  (…Where are you priorities, Maka?)

And they make beautiful music together.

Don’t get me started on the head-touching.

There is also stuff about genderbent, but that’s a long discussion.

STAHP HURTING MEH!    except neither of them actually died, so…    THATS NOT THE POINT HERE    Folks, folks, you’re doing it wrong.  Here is how you respond to shameless trolling:    There.  Donald Glover makes it all better.  [Just be happy I didn’t bring back confetti-and-rainbows-and-shamrocks-coming-out-of-Maka’s-back-injury images.]    we all know if Dwells didnt do it i would’ve    Thanks, Eater!  :D  Although, I did forget another character that Maka (kind of sort of) lost…    I made it worse.  And given tonight’s episode…  Well, now’s as good as any other time for me to start crying…    GOD DAMNET NOT AGAIN *locks Dwells in a room* STAY PUT AND DONT MAKE ANYONE FEEL ANY FEELS AGAIN >:(  #eater saves the day again#yayaya#you can come out when you can behave    …I’m locked in a room?  With no Internet access?  …This is a fate worse than death…  I’ll be good.  :(    Ok ok you can come out now…Just no more feelsies for the wonderful people*gives Internet back*    *Sniff* Thanks.  I promise to stop with the trolling …for this weekend. 

And it’s not like their narrative and character development is built in part around Maka facing the idea of infidelity and how she determines to overcome such doubts based on the evidence that she can trust this person, this partner—in body, mind, and soul.

On the one hand, I am annoyed by the need to turn so many opposite sex friendships into romantic or sexual relationships, as I think it limits storytelling options and suggests that the friendship has to be made romantic.

On the other hand, I ship it—I see the evidence, and I appreciate when writers, especially fan writers, draw upon previous chapters in order to make the relationship realistic and contributing something significant to the overall story.  I think that almost any relationship can be made romantic with the right writer:  it is just a problem of figuring out how to get that story to work without becoming cliche in the worst ways possible.

Others have written on the potential canon:  this post by ilarual and Professor Maka, and this one by aliceunknown and empresslanfan, and a lot of stuff by many fan fic writers and fan artists. 

And of course soma-is-debatably-canon.

Granted, what counts as “canon relationship” is loose when it comes to shipping.  Some people want a kiss; some people want “I love you”; some people want hand-holding; some people want graphic detail; some people want the author to break into the comic itself, wave at the audience, and say, “They’re canon, now leave me alone!”

(Still waiting for that kiss, Okubo.)

THE BEST PART IS THE GIRL IN THE MIDDLE JUST SO DONE

AND THE FACT THAT THIS FAMILY IS MORE MULTI CULTURAL THAN A PUBLIC SCHOOL HEALTH CLASS TEXTBOOK

The girl in the middle is just like “Damn it, Dad.”
