Talk about an intimate moment

  • Vee/Poppy: Vee's friendship with Poppy definitely has moments that stretch far beyond that. Here are the more noteworthy moments.
    • In "Going Batty", when we're introduced to her, Bridget, and Edgar , she's the only one who's both willing to give her a shot and doesn't think she's creepy. Upon seeing her turn into a bat and understandably freaking out, she then immediately decides to help her keep her secret safe upon finding out why. The scene is almost like a love confession.
    • "Vee's Surprise Party" has her be the only one of the classmates not afraid of Vee's scary party, unlike Bridget despite already knowing her secret. In the later scene involving the video tribute, Poppy says "Most of all, she's our Vee " .
    • "Little Terror" has Vee, Poppy, and Bridget watching Vee's baby cousin Nosy, but they struggle to keep her still. There's a conflict involving Vee and Poppy's clashing babysitting styles, though if you switch the context to two parents trying to raise a child, it's largely the same.

    • "Vampire Weekend" has a field day with this. They're constantly complimenting each other on how great the other person is, including when the pendant switches their bodies. They're also rather touchy feely with each other, especially when switching back.
    • While she doesn't appear in "Batty Fever", Vee speaks fondly of how she's able to work together with her.
    • In "Two Heads Are Better Than One", they're completely in sync when working with each other.
    • During the song in "Vampirina Ballerina", there's more emphasis on Poppy trying to cheer up Vee and encouraging her to take on the performance.
    • The season 2 premiere "Vampire For President" definitely qualifies for this. It involves Vee and Poppy running for class president, but are hesitant to do so when they think their friendship is at risk. They then try to encourage each other that they'll still be friends regardless , being very touchy feely with each other. Their song also has a scene involving an arch made of balloons that looks like a wedding arch. When Vee wins in the end, they hug each other.

    • In "The Birthday Broom" has Poppy show the most visible concern in making sure Vee gets a great birthday gift. It's almost like a lovers' anniversary story.
    • "Vee Takes The Court" shows quite a bit of this. The episode involves Vee being part of Poppy's basketball team since their team hasn't won a game all season. The first half of the episode plays out normally, but things get interesting in the second half. Poppy mentions that while she wants to win, she still wants to have fun. Her shaky tone of voice makes it clear she doesn't want to pressure Vee to win. Vee outright says she feels useless if she can't use her powers to help Poppy out. When she does use her powers, Poppy speaks with a sense of disappointment, as does Vee. Vee then realizes it's better to have fun and do your best, touching Poppy's shoulder. They then hug when winning the game.
    • In "The Boo Boys Are Back", there are two instances where Vee puts her hand on Poppy's shoulder. The first time is when she says they should give Poltergeist Pat another chance, silently getting across that Poppy trusted her upon finding out she's a vampire. The second time is when Poltergeist Pat reveals his true colors, with Vee essentially acting like a spouse in saying that things will be better.
    • "Bat Got Your Tongue" is interesting in this regard. When Larry Moss says the girls have talent, Vee says they should practice more to achieve fame. Poppy is acting like both a mediator and a concerned spouse in wanting to make sure Vee is happy yet she and Bridget also are. After Vee loses her voice, Poppy is then told to lip sync for her, which she agrees to reluctantly, thinking to herself "I know it's not right, but it's what Vee wants.". When Vee realizes this isn't right and confesses, she gets her voice back and hugs both Poppy and Bridget, with the former sounding very relieved yet happy.
    • "The Not So Haunted House" definitely shows quite a bit of this. It involves Poppy thinking that she has to move away, and she says she'll miss Vee most of all. They have some pretty tense moments, particularly with Poppy acting agonized at the thought of being separated from here. They also hold hands with each other quite a bit during the second half, especially when it's revealed she isn't moving.
    • "The Great Esmeralda" is a good showcase of this. When Esmeralda tells Vee she'll lose someone close to her, she thinks it's Poppy. She tries really hard to impress her, almost like a romantic partner trying not to lose their loved one.
    • "Art Galler-eek" shows this near the end, with Vee showing quite a bit of physical affection towards Poppy when she says she's a great artist.
    • "Memor-eek" has both Edgar and Poppy forget about meeting Vee due to a magic spell, with Vee trying really hard to help them. She shows a bit more of this with Poppy when trying to jog her memory with everything they've done.
