When the Agent Carter series was first released, there was little to no interest in the pairing - others were left undecided, others were more interested in Peggy/Daniel or Peggy/Angie. The Peggy/Jack pairing slowly grew with the thanks of Tumblr, the first pairing blog, Fuck Yeah, Peggy/Jack was created on January 10, 2015 - just days after the first episode. The first fanfic for the pairing was published at Archive of Our Own on January 22 However, it wasn't until the fifth episode that the pairing's numbers grew. Soon after, other Peggy/Jack fanworks were being published and reblogged on Tumblr and more fanfiction was being posted at AO3 and FanFiction.net.
Sometime in early February, the terms "Cartson Trash" & "Cartson Trash Can" were termed to describe the pairing. Some fans use the Tumblr tag: #cartson trash can. Fuck Yeah Cartson explained that it is "Fat Amy logic. We call it to ourselves to keep from Cartson-haters saying it behind our back. We’re the fandom “trash” and we’re proud of it. Even though we tend to be more positive and supportive than some other ships."
