Exactly. But since, from the start, this thread was purely hypothetical, we can discuss what we think should happen. Of course, at the end of the day, it's all up to the writers. That is a good thing, in my opinion.

Well that's what they are paid to do i suppose but that does not mean we can't guess what could happen. Besides if we did not try and guess it would make the show a little less interesting in my opinion. Fine do leave it to the writters but I think we can still deduce our own ideas from what we have already seen.

I personally like Teral's idea best.  That way, it's up to our own imaginations to decide what happens between them.  Even though I do like "Friends", I don't want to see Fry and Leela like Ross and Rachel.

Yeah, Friends is a funny show, in general, but the whole on again, off again romance between Ross and Rachel just bores me to tears.

Besides, Ross is an idiot.  He dumped Lauren Tom just to go out with Rachel.   tongue

Let's put it this way- I've decided to revaluate my life.  Y'know, change myself.  So I figured changing my name (Sorta) would help the evolution along.  As for who I am...well...there's a 'B' in my name...  big grin

True, but I want to reinvent myself.  I've been passive in the past and regret a lot of the things I did.  That's why I want to change from being a cowering little girl to a fully opinionated, independant woman.  I'm not doing it because any one wants me to, I'm doing it for me.  And while some don't like my changing, it's important that it happen, even if not everyone agrees.  It's like asking, "Is a caterpillar better off being a butterfly?"  Not everyone's going to think the same way.  However, I think it's a change for the better and will prove helpful as I enter my second year of high school.  To relate it to my screenname, I'm going from being a Lila to the girl who both loves and hates her beloved football-headed hero. big grin
FYI- My favorite teacher told me that everyone changes a lot after their freshman year.  Obviously, I'm no different.

That's all well and good, but it seems you're only changing your on-line persona. In a way, I can understand. It's like going to a big city and telling everyone that your name is Michael for example. As Michael, I'm free to be who I want. Two things though, if anyone finds out your true name, people will think you a liar. Second, you may not like the person you become. You don't need to change your name to change who you are. If you truly want to change, you can.

Besides, *I* know who you are and so does Kryten. If you want to get a fresh start, why do you give clues to your real "identity"?

But whatever you what, it is up to you.

I think the reason I've been dropping hints is because like Bender, I want to know if I'm remembered.  Selfish, yes, I know.  But hey, it's fun.  wink
As for a transformation outside the little square sitting on my desk, it's obviously not going to be easy to see here.  Honestly, no one *really* knows me.  So technically, while some of my persona is reflected in my form of speech/writing, it won't be as obvious as it is to those I see each day because they know sides of me that I don't reveal to everyone else. 
Anyway, to stay on topic:  Uh, um...it should be left to our imaginations what happens with Fry and Leela.  I don't want a great show to be spoiled by a relationship that's only one part of it.

That would be pop-rock or just pop (it is after all popular music).

There's nothing punk about Blink182 or The Offspring. The term 'pop-punk' is an oxymoron.

Anyway, we're getting off-topic. That's bad.

Anyway, I'd like them to get together eventually, but that would probably make the show go downhill. Couples and coupley plots aren't as funny as single people. Not that that will happen anyway since the show is ending.   frown

I guess I'll add to it then.  big grin
Well, I don't want one of those "Oh, everything's perfect" endings with them getting married and the Professor dying or whatnot.  I'd actually lean toward an ending like the resolution Richie and Margot come to in one of my favorite films, The Royal Tenenbaums.  If you plan on seeing the film but haven't, I suggest disregarding this post as it ruins a plot line.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I would be pleased with an ending where the audiences knows both Leela and Fry care for each other and so do they.  I believe that if there were to be more seasons, their relationship would evolve into a romantic one.  However, I think many realize that especially in the fourth season (production-wise) their friendship is already changing.  I honestly think it would eventually lead down that "relationship" road, but I guess the world may never know.  However, that doesn't mean we can't keep writing and drawing how we think things should end!  love

I don't think it would have to be too much different if they got together.  There are plenty of existing episodes that would be basically the same no matter what the state of their relationship.  If they were together, you'd lose episodes about Fry trying to win Leela's heart or about Leela dating someone else, but there really haven't been too many like that.

I think that since the romance subplot is there, it needs to be resolved.  Otherwise it'd drag out forever and end up being meaningless.

The show isn't just about Leela/Fry (no matter how much us Shippers want it to be.   love   love )
If Fry and Leela got together it would not ruin the show.   roll eyes    roll eyes


It could ruin Zapp.  If you think about it, Zapp is the only human when introduced to Leela that doesn't freek out. No more Zapp obscessing over Leela, no Leela lashing out on Zapp.  It would ruin the Leela/Zapp relationship, Zapp loves Leela but hates Leela's pets, Leela hates Zapp but loves hurting Zapp.    big grin

It would be different. Fry and Leela would have more sentimental moments (The show already has enough of them!) and they'd probably be together all the time (like how Kif and Amy are usually together) and Bender would be overshadowed by the cute couple. Don't you think a show would focus more on the main couple than other characters? And Fry and Leela would lose that great friendship dynamic they have. It would just be too different.

I want them to get together, but not until the last episode.

not necessarily. If they were to get together the number of sentimental moments would probably remain about the same. Only instead of those moments being made up of Fry trying to win Leela over they would be made up of cute couple moments. And no i don't thnk the writers would focus on the relationship any more then they focus on Fry's romantic attempts now. We typically get about 3-4 shippy eps now, and as a couple we would probably get about the same. Plus the writers are good enough to know not to overshadow the other characters. Most Futurama eps are non-shippy and i think even in a relationship that would remain the same. After its established that they are together theres no reason to point that out again in every single ep. in most eps they probably wouldn't even mention it. they don't mention Fry's love for Leela in every ep now and there would be no reason to once they were together. And as far as Leela and Fry's friendly dynamic goes, i don't see them losing that. Cause in order to be in a good solid romantic relationship you must first be friends.

Thanks for reviving the discussion, Kristi.
This is a cracking-good thread! One I have no small interest in.
Third-page (or so) flame-thrower duels aside for the moment, there has been a lot of original thinking and sensible analysis here. I don't think I've anything to add that hasn't been said already, save this:
In television series writing, nothing is more dangerous than change. It's like juggling live grenades: You can do it, but if you don't do it just so, it can blow up in your face.

I think that Fry and Leela can be together, but only between the episodes.  laff
Seriously, think about that, if they were together they couldn't fall in love with some weird alien or something like that. Also there could be not more episodes about Fry's desperate, hilarious attempts to win Leela's heart.
