Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Official Companion Guide clarifies the relationship between Flick and C.J.

Best buds

Not too long ago, there was some discussion of the relationship between Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Flick and C.J.. Some ambiguous dialog lead to a number of fans thinking that the two were in a romantic relationship together, while others thought the verbiage was referencing a business relationship and nothing more. Today we have our official answer.

A snippet from the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Official Companion Guide pretty much puts the speculation to rest. It does seem the mention of 'partner' in the original dialog was in reference to business partner specifically. That said, the two do appear to be quite great friends, as they're roommates! Another line of dialog did say how the two knew each other since childhood, so it seems they've been palling around for quite some time.

I'm sure this will upset some and be denied by others, but let's consider the fact that Animal Crossing is practically romance-free, for ALL types of romance. Off the top of my head I can only think of two married couples in the game's history, and both of them are gone.

Fandom shipping can easily backfire.

But there'll still be the fanart.

I won't be surprised if people on the internet start complaining about Nintendo's "lack of representation" after this.

I can already hear the Resetera thread being made. Maybe in the future people should be aware that, I don't know, the word "partner" exists independently of the LGBT side of the world.

Maybe in the future people should be aware that representation matters.

....no one said it didn't? But like on the flipside this was just shippers trying to will their ship into existence by reading way too far into a single word.

I hope people aren't too invested in which cartoon animals are banging each other.

There's a time and place for anything,

In the general context I suppose si about more about checking a box, than actually doing something with that "statement."

Rule34 would disagree with you there.

Bowser and Princess Peach are definitely in a very intense physical relationship. I’ve seen ample photographic evidence.

I came here to laugh at people with fragile egos who have to project their own identity onto anything they get their hands on. That is all.

That's a shame, but if we've learned anything, it's that death of an author is a potent thing for fandom lol.
