|Schroedinger\'s Ship Tease|
The creator hints both for and against a particular pairing.
This is taken directly from akazedoktor.tumblr.com: Someone needs to submit this to TV Tropes. I have no idea how itís done though. Definition: The creator must hint for and against a particular pairing The fandom must be split down the middle between those who call it canon and those who donít The creator, for whatever reason, doesnít let on, EVER. Result: Schroedingerís Ship Tease. Prime example: Heavy/Medic, of course. Arguably John/Sherlock in the new series (either that or the writers have a fucking weird sense of humor) NOT X-Files, because they went somewhere with it in the end. Sam/Dean in Supernatural, apparently Anyway, the point of the trope is that the creator has to swing it both ways without ever confirming or denying. Or something. I donít know, Iíve been distracted by TV Tropes again.
