i saw your hc of bi scrooge and "the duck in the iron mask" and i am curious , what is the comic that made you think scrooge is bi?
Would you believe there isn’t one? At least no one comic, and this is after scouring INDUCKS for ones to jog my memory. I think it’s just more a general sense I get when reading? Now, none of these are concrete of course, but whether it’s his numerous encounters with Flinty
and calling him Flinty in the first place –
The sheer number of “old mining partners (or other such peers) from days of yore” that’ve been thrown in as filler characters* –
(*look, if “alone together in the middle of nowhere” works for Scrooge and Goldie, why not others)
Or the monetary hoops he’ll jump through, despite the famed iron bands on his wallet, to impress or keep the favor of a “business associate” –
There’s just little things here and there that’ve added up to “Scrooge is bi” in my mind. Like I said at the top, all of these are absolutely written at face value XD And it could be argued this is another branch of that old “THEY’RE IN THE SHOT TOGETHER IT’S TRU LUV” brand of ‘shipping’. But it’s fun to add stuff up and make headcanons about sexuality, identity, preferences in general, or basically anything. (Potential subjects for another post: Scrooge’s non-bias against both dressing in women’s clothing or being seen without clothes at all)
I feel like there is a specific story that put the bisexual headcanon in my mind, but I just can’t think of it? Concentration is hard right now, sorry anon ^^; Special shout-out to All You Need Is Love though, in which Scrooge is courted by a millionairess –
Only for it to turn out in the end to be one of his rarer appearing crooks trying to get his money, noting that he was FAR more upset that he’d nearly lost half his fortune to Sly, again, than the fact he’d been kissin’ on (and had nearly married) a dude.
Again, “Meant to be taken at face value” disclaimer, but see above for thoughts on that.
Others can add to this discussion if they’d like! My knowledge is all but limited to stories printed in English, and even then almost entirely the Uncle $crooge line, so further additions are more than welcome, be it on this post or others.
Hope that helps, anon!
ETA: SOMEONE REMINDED ME I FORGOT ABOUT ROCKERDUCK. Anon, people better than I have compiled posts about Rockerduck and Scrooge, but if you hit up his tag on my blog you oughta see a couple of them. That belongs here more than about anything else, I’d think.
