I like how after this happened it was never brought up again by Monster High. Honestly I would kind of like to see them again, not that I really ship them but it would be kind of cool to see that MH remembers that this happened

oh mh fans. not every kiss has to lead to a relationship. not every display of affection is a harbinger of a future pairing. didn’t you ever have a one-off hook up when you were 16?

I’im not saying they need to be in a relationship, like, at all, I just find it weird that MH did this and never brought it up again, all I’m saying is that I wish we could have more

well, they go to different schools and from what we see the mh students rarely interact with normies. jackson barely gets screentime as is, and i feel like delving back into claire would require a whole plotline. i’m just not sure what context they would possibly bring it up again? unless jackson tosses off a line about that one time he got snogged by a normie girl.
the movies have a habit of introducing characters we don’t see much of again. i’m still stunned we’re getting more garrott. it would be nice if there was more continuity, definitely. 

Mattel likes to pretend a lot of things never happened.




It’s not exclusive to Monster High either.

In true hearts day Raven figured out that it’s Dexter who has a crush on her. and they never discuss it ever again. She was going to confront him in the true hearts day special but she didn’t, because she saw him with Cupid. It’s been 7 months since True hearts day, why have they never talked about it!? we’ve seen them interacting with each other but Dexters crush on Raven is never brought up again. this wouldn’t bother me so much if they didn’t make it a huge plot point of true hearts day.


this one needed to be posted twice tho 

Never forget Sexy Clawd.
