    Don't tell anyone, they might have to embrace that not everything need be a ship.

    But these two do get written that way a bit so I can see why it can be inferred as such. DC might Harley/Ivy them down the line.

    Guys
    People have different interpretation based on different experience on both real life and writing trope they've seen in various medias
    It's neither shipping nor a joke, that's just how art interpretation work
    I don't like that a curiosity/question/analysis is being undermined by simply labeling it a ship

    At one time... best bud friends like Fred Flinstone/Barney were accepted, no questions asked.

    But somewhere along the way an alpha-male defense kicked in when men became embarrassed by showing any kind of feelings, platonic or otherwise, towards another man.

    To the point where now if two guys are 'bros', people suspect there's something more.

    I always saw Beetle and Booster as the perfect buddy team. Platonic, but unguarded from each other.
    Same with Fire & Ice, which embodied a Laverne & Shirley type of buddy, but more towards a Betty & Veronica type where one is more extroverted and the other more introverted.

    No, they weren't dating each other. But people like to project the idea onto them.
    Kinda like 'Did the Duke boys date?' is usually a form sexual fantasy, not unlike that of imagining two hot girls making out that normally wouldn't.

    Booster did try to date Catherine Cobert, though, before she hooked up with Captain Atom.
    Ice dated Guy and Fire had a thing for Oberon

    As well, it could just be a lame attempt by the author to queerbait.
