So I’m sure I’m not the first person to suggest a Proposition Infinity au where it’s Bender and Fry who get together instead of Bender and Amy (because let’s face it, we all know that’s what should’ve happened but didn’t because the writers are heterosexual cowards), but specifically, imagine a Proposition Infinity au where Bender and Fry do get married at the end but subsequently divorce like a week later for some really dumb reason that’s no doubt Bender being his usual dramatic self, and Fry and Leela’s on-again-off-again relationship from the revival seasons is joined by a concurrent Fry and Bender on-again-off-again relationship (when Fry’s not with one of them he’s with the other).
Of course this is eventually resolved with a stable OT3, but I love both the idea of being able to rewrite episodes like Ghost in the Machines to feature explicit (in the textual sense, not the... other sense) Frender while not sacrificing canon Freela, as well as the comedic potential in this bizarre love triangle where Fry is constantly ping-ponging between the two of them and doesn’t know who to choose.
Futurama fankid time! This is Turanga Piper Fry-Rodriguez, my Fry/Leela fankid, who’s raised by Bender after Fry and Leela get lost in space (they’re eventually found and we get the Bender/Fry/Leela ot3 family we deserve, don’t worry). She’s a total slacker who mostly just bums around Planet Express and picked up her fair share of bad habits from Bender, but she’s also far more good-natured than him. The tentacle arm is inherited from Leela obviously (it even has the same colours hers did in Leela and the Genestalk), while the jacket is Bender’s as seen in Decision 3012. She also lacks a delta brainwave like her dad, and has a thing for Zapp Brannigan’s daughter (which Leela of course is horrified by).
This isn’t my first time drawing in the Simpsons/Futurama house style, but it’s been a long time. I’m pretty happy with how this came though, especially considering I drew it entirely with a trackpad. It’s not perfect, but i just really wanted to get a reference for her down on paper.
