Hey tumblr, you know what's not okay? Ship shaming.
I don’t care if someone’s OTP is canon, like Supermartian, something they see in subtext, like BirdFlash, or complete fucking crack, like, I dunno, Black Canary/Teekl.
I don’t care if they ship two people of the same gender, two people of different gender! Two adults, two teenagers, an adult and a teenager! Two people of the same race, two people of different races! Two able-bodied people, two disabled people, or an abled person with a disabled person! Two people from the same socioeconomic class, or from two different classes! Or any other aspect of a character.
Or three people of any of the above. Or four, or five, or hell, maybe three dozen!
I don’t care if you don’t like it. Fuck knows there are a lot of ships that I don’t like, canon or otherwise, including shit that makes me uncomfortable or that I find deeply problematic! So you know what I do? I ignore it. I tumblr savior it. I keep on scrolling. And you should, too.
Because you don’t fucking make people feel guilty for their ship and their enjoyment of fandom.
No matter what.
Wait… so M!Shenko people shitting on F!Shenko people is a thing? Why the fuck should either sub-group be bashing the other…? In-fighting just serves to weaken the Kaidan fandom as a whole… and it’s not like we don’t have enough trouble fending off hateful bullshit from other OTP groups, whether you’re M!Shenko or F!Shenko.
TL;DR: If you’re starting shit in your own fandom to your own fellow fans, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Here's a tip...
When you go to a tweetup, it doesn’t matter how drunk you are, it is not okay to go up to someone and ask them why they unfollowed you or why you never followed them back. Sometimes it’s not personal, sometimes they’re just trying to control their dash or avoid things that you post like reblogs or replies to comments. But chances are, if you are the type of person who asks this question at a meetup, they probably unfollowed you because you are a creepy asshole, because that’s the only kind of person who would ask this question.
Dear OTR Readers
For those of you that keep giving Hella shit about updating.
She is a normal fucking human being, calm down. She’s not just some machine that cranks out fics for your enjoyment. She has a life, she has other things on her mind, and the last thing she needs is you fucktards yelling at her for not getting chapters up quick enough.
You want to know why the chapters she writes are so fucking amazing? It’s because she WORKS HER ASS OFF on them to make sure they’re perfect for you guys. She gets so stressed just for the likes of you. So the LEAST thing you could do is be patient and be grateful for the WONDERFUL story she has given us thus far.
