Wheeler - Captain Planet and the Planeteers
personal information, including your religious or political views, health, racial background, country of origin, sexual identity and/or personal relationships. I have seen there is not really a topic to discuss the "relationship" between Wheeler and Linka during the series. But I have so much on my. From the moment he sees her, Wheeler flirts heavily with Linka. He often calls her 'babe', and flirts with her heavily throughout several episodes. Linka, however.
I think too, after several years of not progressing with Linka, he's probably not going to keep pursuing her in the same way he once did. I don't know if I've actually answered your question, or if I've even made sense! I find it really difficult to actually voice what I think about their relationship.
I think too, I start to decide on one train of thought and then something I come across questions it. I actually have a fic I started that sort of tries to highlight the above, but because Real Life is pretty full on at the moment and because I was struggling to articulate what I was trying to convey it has been put on the backburner for the mo. IDK, I'm tending to think there isn't some secret love affair - not in canon anyway, despite our want of it.
Would you be so willing to put up with a guy you were with flirt incessantly with every chick he came across? Like hell I would! Anyway, I have actually thought long and hard over their complicated relationship and I have evidence to back up my theories, because that's how my brain works.
But, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I'm not necessarily saying that mine is right or whatever. It's just how I see it based on my more mature, objective outlook compared to when I was much younger lol. And I totally hated Greg too. Mostly because he came across as a creepy, homicidal, arrogant douche.
I mean seriously, who the hell takes a chick they like out onto a bridge, backs her towards a broken section and says that if she fell in she might never get out?? Even if the show was trying to make us suspect that he was the saboteur, it was still totally creepy!
I've often thought that too. It was just that they seemed more relaxed with each other. It's been a while since I watched season 6 it's not really my favorite. Like Mudget, I didn't really care for the re-imaging of the characters I wrote a fic called "Missing Pieces" where I sort of filled in my own blanks about their relationship I should probably go back and read it because I can't remember if I made it through to Season 6.
Anyway, to summarize, my take on it was that they had an "on and off" relationship. They were young, they were the only two attractive people on an island, it was only natural that they'd gravitate to each other. But Wheeler, being the young man that he was, would still flirt with anyone else given the chance. Obviously that didn't sit well with Linka and she would let it be known.
It gives us an excuse for why she never took his flirtations seriously He's a flirt but totally devoted to her when they're together but she's afraid of getting hurt so she puts walls up. Like I said, when they're together, they're so cute and I'm rooting for them to make it. Kinda like I was always pulling for Wheeler and Linka.
But that was when I was I had no idea what love was. Now that I've seen it with real people, I think that made me project my friends' relationship to the cartoon characters when I started re-watching the episodes a few years ago.
I can't think of all the things that stood out for me in Season 6, but the episode about the puppy mills stands out as a good example. There were a couple of times when Wheeler was really mad and Linka just reached out and touched his arm and he calmed down.
I know it's little, but I also know that when I would lose my temper, there was only one person who could just calm me down with a look or a touch. I wish I could remember more examples as to why I had that feeling about the "behind the scenes" relationship like you have! Maybe I'll read Missing Pieces before I go to bed or at least the end!
In the show they are teenagers, so I picture their relationship on a teenage level. Yet at the same time they are also somewhat immature due to their age. Not necessarily immature in their actions, since they're saving the world, more like immature in their emotions Wheeler can't help but flirt with a cute girl that comes by He is a teenage boy though, so that's forgiveable. In fact I'd be worried if he didn't want to flirt with pretty girls Also Linka can be pretty quick to anger and get more upset by things that Wheeler does than she really needs to be.
Besides that, even though I think Wheeler is really into Linka, at his age the idea of committing to something serious would be terrifying. I mean my husband was 2 weeks away from being 30 when we got married, and my Dad was 33 when he got married.
Young guys just aren't into the idea of running off and getting married and committing to someone forever and ever. And I don't think it's just because they want to run around when lots of other girls.
It's mostly just the fear of all the responsiblity that would be required of them.
Wheeler's still at that age where he wants to have fun, not be tied down to a serious relationship, and even if he wanted to be in a relationship would probably be afraid he couldn't handle it.
However I still think there's definitely something there between them, and given time it would grow into a serious relationship. It's obvious that they care about each other, and when things get tense they both really worry about the other one. Not to mention they are in dangerous life threatening situations all the time, and are pretty much always together anyway, so their feelings would have plenty of chance to grow.
I always pictured that they would end up together eventually. Toward the end of the series they were both older, like maybe 18ish based on the redesign, so they might be more in a place to start actually dating. Also I like to pretend Season 6 never existed.
You know what episode was the worst? We get to see the future and Wheeler and Linka aren't together, Blight is a single mom whose kid hates her and stabs her in the back, Wheeler kisses Blight's daughter right in front of Linka, and pretty much no one has done anything with their life except fight the same handful of people over and over.
If they were gonna show the future couldn't they have Linka and Wheeler together or something? I hope after they got back to the past they decided to completely rethink their lives and do something better with them Anyway, that's my Season 6 rant Well this sounds kinda rambling and I'm not sure if I answered anything or what here, but this is my opinion at least. In the first Seasons we've had so much to laugh or worry about the on and off of the two, about Wheelers flirts, but at season six it seemed more relaxed for the characters and for me as viewer as well.
There are so many times Linka could calm down Wheeler only with a touch or a word, especially in the episode with the puppies, but Wheeler can make this with Linka as well for example the episode Twelve angry animals And I guess in the episode where Wheeler is kissing that girl, it seemed for me more that she is kissing him, I couldn't see a turn of Wheeler.
And I guess Linka is not longer jealous, or not so much, because if they've are serious relationship behind our backs, she didn't have to worry about his flirts, because she feels certain about his love and intentions. That would explain why she is so cool with it at 6th season, though she didn't was at season And I guess Wheeler is at the end of Numbers Game only repelling Linka because he is afraid of his dream and to loose controle because of the many kids. At least he is a Planeteer and still young, who wants to know or see that you will end up with Everybody would be afraid of that dream if you're scarcely awake.
I didn't hope, that I frustrate you too much? Because I didn't like conspiracies, even though it's only in a cartoon series: Season 5 didn't play on terrestrial tele over here, and by the time we got Sky, I was busy with my exams and was only able to see a few episodes when my mum was inclined to tape it for me. They didn't play season 6 at all and I didn't even find out about it until I stumbled upon ff. It has to be obvious from my stories that I've always seen a relationship going on between them but whether they were actually together Maybe when all the DVD boxsets come out it will be obvious but it seems to make a difference what order you watch them in too, and there's more than one list, so whilst I haven't completely disregarded season six, I have decided on an order for myself I agree that there were a few episodes when Linka was a little too okay with his flirting and if that's all mixed together with the one's where they're clearly still interested it just looks odd.
Practically speaking I'm sure it just depended on who wrote the episode and who drew the pictures, and they just weren't putting enough thought into it, but where's the fun in that? And filling in the gaps are what fans are for, right?
I think I'm just agreeing with what's been said already but basically, the way I see it is this Wheeler starts out as an immature teenager that will flirt with every pretty girl he sees. The more he gets to know Linka, the more he feels for her but she gives him the brush off most of the time and that's fine, it's all a part of the game.
Linka has no interest in a quick fling or a purely physical relationship, she's also far more mature than he is, so while she's attracted to him she writes him off as a potential boyfriend and pushes him away. She's still a teenager though and she's attracted to him, plus every so often she gets a glimpse of what he's like under the flirty exterior and she likes it.
They're almost constantly together so they see the best and worst of each other, and unlike most teenagers they have to depend on each other for their lives. I'm inclined to think that they weren't officially a couple until very late on, but maybe they'd begun to think of each other as 'theirs'. There was a lot of arguing and making up, finding excuses to spend time together and avoiding each other completely They're getting older though and Wheeler backs off, both because he isn't getting anywhere and because he realises that he's begun to think seriously about a future with her, and he's not really ready for that.
He's not hiding his feelings well though and since Linka is finally getting the idea that he isn't just out for what he can get with her, she begins to relax around him more and sometimes it's her doing the flirting. Don't ask me for the episodes I'd have to look them up and I'm doing this off the top of my head. No longer teenagers, they deal with it a bit better, not letting it interfere on missions and spending time together when they can. Wheeler occasionally tries Linka's patience, but while we don't see it, I think they have some sort of acknowledged relationship by the end of season 6.
Maybe if it had continued it would have become more obvious. If we assume each season is a year, as the first one was, they are definitely older than 18 at the end of the series. If Wheeler was 18 at the start of 6, then that makes Linka 11 in the first episode. Characters tend to age much more slowly than in real life or not at all in some cartoons, like the Simpsons for example I think that at the beginning of the series Linka is said to be 16, maybe 17 for Wheeler.
But I don't think they aged 6 years over the course of the show, or that would put them in their 20s by Season 6. I think maybe the animators were going more for 18ish in Season 6.
They decided they needed to age some, but not too much, I guess. That's what I think anyway. And for the record I don't think that there's "nothing" there, I just don't think it's something "official" ; And Louise has a point about alot of it depending on the writer of the particular episode. There really is alot of inconsistency in the writing, which always makes debates like this interesting.
I also think that's why alot of us here have written stories that are either "missing scenes" or filling in the details of episodes that didn't really quite make sense.
I have to say I agree with a lot of your points. I still don't know about the latter two series though, but your arguments make sense. I think the fact that I saw S6 only last year, and therefore with 'mature' eyes ie, as an adult, not a teenager it makes a difference in my overall opinion.
I think they have such a complex relationship it's hard to give it a clean-cut definition. I think too, the fact that their isn't much continuity between the eps, it does make it hard to see how their relationship "develops".
Finally giving in fully, Linka brushed her lips slowly over Wheeler's. Her hips had slid forward, pressing her body up against his.
Second Chances Chapter 1: Sorrows and Flashback, a captain planet fanfic | FanFiction
Feeling Linka's body push up against his, Wheeler started to feel warm all over. Taking a breath, pulling back from kissing her on the lips, Wheeler then formed a trail of kisses down her jawline and along her neck.
Having such an action bestowed upon her, and it being in a sensitive area. Linka kept her eyes closed, tilting her head a little to the side, lips slightly parted, a rather heavy breath escaped from her. After a moment, Linka pulled back, having a pleading look within her green eyes. The feelings she had overcome her, it prompted her to say what she said next. I want to…" Linka became flustered once more "Bozhe Moi. Hands still resting on her hips, instantly Wheeler caught onto what she was trying to say "Say no more babe, I get it".
Sharing a passionate kiss, as lost as she became within it. Linka stepped away from the wall, she then pulled Wheeler to follow her.
Heading straight for the open door to her hut, which was soon shut behind them. Without breaking the kiss, which was becoming all the more fierce. Linka didn't stop backing up, not until the back of her legs hit against the side of her bed.Wheeler & Linka Share A Goodbye Kiss
Pulling her lips back from Wheeler's, Linka gazed up at him "Things are Wanting to let her know that it was alright, alright to feel the way she was currently feeling.
Wheeler knew what she wanted, what he wanted, what they both wanted. Hands slipping up his shirt once more, the kiss Linka was receiving took her breath away completely. Tracing her fingers over Wheeler's abs, Linka felt a rather excited feeling wash over her. In doing so, his lips trailed back to Linka's neck, each of his kisses he allowed to linger. Breath catching in her throat, Linka had to hold back a groan, instead she whispered, slightly breathless "Wheeler…" As hands and lips explored one another, Linka found herself reaching for Wheeler's hand, without warning, she slid it up the front of her sky blue, long sleeved top.
The moment Wheeler's fingers came into contact with her bare skin, Linka felt herself flare up all over. Unable to help but smirk a little, Wheeler moved his hand, his fingertips grazing over Linka's soft skin. This action sent a pleasurable shiver up the blonde's spine. Wanting more, her desire to be closer to the Yankee growing more intense. Linka pulled her hands from under his shirt, bringing them up to rest on either side of Wheeler's face.
Pulling his head down, she pressed her lips more intensely against his. Linka, she's really going for it…' Wheeler thought to himself, not that he minded. He was just surprised.
What happened next really caught him off guard, Linka leaned back and fell upon her bed, bringing the redhead with her. Bringing out his hands, Wheeler rested them either side of Linka, supporting his weight upon them. Linka's sudden display of increased affection, it had caused the American to feel a little nervous. Much like that time he and the Russian rode together in the Tunnel of Love. The bizarre dream Wheeler had that day, it had turned him off from wanting to kiss Linka.
In fears the kiss would have led to the events of his dream. This time it was Wheeler who pulled back from the kiss they had been sharing. Feeling heat rise to his cheeks, Wheeler replied "No of course not! Just to prove her point, Linka placed both her hands on either side of his cheeks. Gently she pulled his head down, close enough to press her lips to his. Wheeler didn't resist, blue eyes close he fell into the rather passionate kiss.
Carefully he slid his hands behind her back, allowing them to rest against her shoulder blades. Both their lips brushed against each other deeply. Wanting more, Linka pulled him even closer. One of her hands slid from Wheeler's face, travelling down his shoulder. Stopping on his elbow, Linka carefully repositioned his hand. Boldly she slipped it up her top, not stopping until she rested it, perhaps a little shyly upon her right breast.
At this point, Wheeler's mind was doing loops on him, it was always on very rare occasions, that Linka would show her affection. Tilting her head to the side, allowing Wheeler better access to her neck. Linka's breath was drawn in rather quickly. Still feeling bold, the Russian started to kiss and lightly nip at her Yankee's earlobe.
Both were breathing somewhat heavily now, reaching his hands over, Wheeler grabbed at the bottom of Linka's sky blue top and steadily lifted it up. Though nervous, Linka didn't hesitate and arched her back a little. Enough so Wheeler could pull her top off over her head. Doing the same, Linka removed Wheeler's red shirt; discarding it upon the floor of her hut. Cheeks flushed pink, Linka ran her hands over the redhead's toned chest.
Wheeler, you are really muscular". The blonde sounded breathless, it wasn't that she had failed to notice how toned Wheeler was in the past. She had seen it on a number of occasions. Still, she was in awe. No surprise, a smirk had formed on Wheelers' lips, replying "Of course I am babe, I do work out ya know, anything to look good for you".
Lips crashing together once more, Wheeler had pulled Linka closer to him, so that their bare chests were touching. The deeper the pair fell into the moment, the more intense things became between them. As Wheeler bit down on her neck, a pleasurable groan came from Linkas' lips. Slowly she raised her legs, pressing them against the redhead's hips.
Having positioned himself between the Russian's legs, Wheeler rubbed his hips against her. Obviously, Linka could feel what was happening against her, causing her to mumble "Bozhe Moi…" The fact she could make him feel this way, it was a new but good feeling.
The American had no plans on stopping with his pursuing of the lovely Russian. He proceeded to trail his kisses down her neck and to her chest.
Every Possible CP 'ship! - frankiealton
In response to the action, Linka arched her back a little. Her chest pressing up against Wheeler's lips, a gentle gasp had escaped her pink lips.
When Wheeler turned his kissing into light nips upon her sensitive skin, a pleasurable moan had rolled off the blondes tongue. It wasn't long before the rest of their clothes were discarded on the floor. Now fully naked in front of one another, Linka suddenly felt a bit uneasy.
Bearing all in front of the Yankee, she raised her hands to cover her chest, a blush covered Linka's cheeks. Do not just sit there and stare at me like that, Bozhe Moi Wheeler! Biting her bottom lip, Linka was a little worried on how Wheeler would think of her physically.
Having not been able to take his blue eyes off her, Wheeler jerked suddenly out of his trance, startled by the blonde snapping at him. Not wanting the moment to be ruined, Wheeler quickly apologised "Ah! S-sorry, it's just that, you're absolutely gorgeous babe…" When Linka still seemed to hesitate, he reached over his hand and placed it against her cheek. Hearing such sweet words come from the American, it made Linka's heart leap with happiness.
Though at times Wheeler could be insensitive and say things without thinking, he had his good moments as well.
When it came to her, Wheeler always knew how to make her feel good about herself. Most of the time she would turn down his attempts to show her affection, but this time things were different. Adjusting her position, Linka held out her arms, inviting Wheeler so she could embrace him. Smiling the redhead shifted his own position, he fit almost perfectly between her legs. Giggling a little, Linka wrapped her arms around the back of Wheeler's neck, fumbling with red strands of his hair.
The Russian had been together with her Yankee for almost a year now. She had finally given into her hearts desires, eventually it had proven too much to resist anymore.
Wheeler's voice reached Linka's ears, it brought a smile to her lips. It was true, the blonde did trust him, with everything she had.
