So many reasons why they aren’t even comparable.
For one thing Adam and Fiona didn’t date. And the only time they kissed was the episode where she pretty much figured out she liked girls or within a couple episodes. It wasn’t a long storyline of her and Adam. This type of storyline is not even remotely relevant - a rebound with someone of the same sex or whatever? What is Miles gonna realize he is straight so he used Tristan? That’s not even relevant. It makes way more sense for him to realize he is bi and date Tristan. Everything else is a convoluted conspiracy tbh.
It’s obvious Miles and Tristan are going probably date as it is going to be a whole season worth because the cast says this. And Adam helped Fiona realize her sexuality? This is what for Miles? A season long plot device for Matlingworth? Really? Just a plot device to go back and just reaffirm he is straight? This logic just makes no sense at all. This is so silly. What is wrong with it being a plot about Miles being bi? Matlingsworth was a plot to confirm he likes girls and Triles confirms he also likes boys. Like Imogen she liked Eli and then she dated Fiona and liked Adam to show she is pans. I don’t know what’s so hard to understand or accept? :/ it’s a simple relevant plot.
The cast confirms it isn’t something that just goes away. That doesn’t mean there won’t be drama but they sorta gave it away that it’s not him manipulating Tristan. Those type of plots don’t last that long or rebounds don’t really last long. Before the promo and the interview - that was up in the air bht these plots other than Miles being bi don’t fit with what the cast says and the promo shows. Plus the promo is 30 seconds.
Let’s get this straight Miles isn’t gonna die, this is 14A, they said triles is a season long thing, they said the fans would be pleased on how it turns out. Really no one wants him to be using Tristan no one would like that except some Matlingworth shippers who want nothin but it even if it would be bad characterization - it would be a character regression.
Even people who don’t ship them don’t want him to be using Tristan because it makes his character terrible. So I have faith it’s gonna be okay. Not drama less because Tristan is a drama queen and so is Miles. I mean I know they’re gonna question Miles motives and Tristan will probably at some point because of Miles’ dad but he will still be by Miles’ side. I think it will be okay and I don’t expect anything less than them dating but this is not even comparable to Fiona and Adam. If anything it’s like Imogen and Fiona. Plus awhile ago Lyle said Miles is 6 on a scale from 0-10 gay scale - 0 being straight and 10 being flaming. That is a firm bisexual. 2-4 is any form of confusion that would result from experimentation, being open, rebounding whatever. It’s a hint because nobody thought he was serious or teasing but let me just say as a side note: at least for a certain band/boyband they were being interviewed by Lauren Toyota and there was a ship that their management told her to address it in the interview. So it had me wondering if she was asked to ask the cast about triles so they could give hints. But again it’s just me wondering after I knew this fact about this band’s Much Music interview. And also Lyle pretty much said that Tristan would get a boyfriend. I can’t remember what he said so if anyone can link that After Degrassi.
Honestly the denial of people I really don’t get. The cast confirms stuff that point to Miles being bi and the final scene was waaaaaay too honest to be him manipulating him and the story seems to be way too long to be a rebound if it lasts all of season 14. Luke Bilyk says that. I don’t care what people think in terms of liking them or liking Matlingsworth but don’t be in denial. :’)
Oh man I just happened to see this comment. I steer clear of degrassi wiki because the comments are awful and soo off base. I honestly believe they did triles the way they did and when they did is for added drama and for people to speculate on what it’s all about. I only really interact with people who like triles. But I do lurk because I like laughing at people who losing their shit when I’ve known it would happen since 13A.
Sorry for the long post- I don’t really care if people don’t like them together but usually degrassi tries to hit on real issues. And quite frankly bisexuality is more relevant than a straight guy rebounding. It kinda bugs me more thinking about this plot and real life and people pressuring people to be heterosexual and not accepting people are dating or having feelings for someone of the same sex. It just worrisome there are people adamant about him using Tristan. It’s like would you treat someone in real life like that? Wouldn’t you rather think you misses stuff about the person instead of “it’s just a rebound” or whatever. People that think this way are very insensitive but that being said I’m not saying people that don’t like Tristan and Miles together are I just mean people adamant Miles is straight. If he made out with Tristan (multiple times!) he’s obviously not… Doesn’t mean the writers will make it perfect or have any of them fuck up. Bht to think the above about the characters is silly by now as the cast has pretty much confirmed it’s a season long plot and doesn’t just go away and the fans will like it. So I don’t think triles fans have too much to worry about. 😬
