Glimadora already had a small following from the original She-Ra: Princess Of Power series, though it gained a much larger fanbase after the first season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

In a way Glimmadora have similarities with Pearlmethyst from Steven Universe and Rayllum from The Dragon Prince

It's revealed in season 3 adora think glimmer is special by saying " i never met anyone like you " actually implies the motivation of possible love since such words only given when a person love deeply to the other and at cloudy with a chance of meatball betweem sam and flynn was they about to kiss when sam said the word to flyn . many times adora and glimmer has an almost kiss and the troupe wiki says " this happen cause the real kiss will be saved in the season finale " so romantic interest in this ship may happen since most showrunner on tv shows prefer healthy bond from the start of the show that still countinues the relationship growth in all season
