Shipping is okay with real people when it’s done respectfully. Here are MY do’s and don’ts of shipping real people:
DO: make fanfics and fanart. It’s a great way to improve your writing and drawing skills and it’s a fun way to express yourself.
DON’T: send the people involved in the ship said fanfics and art unless it’s ASKED for. It can make them uncomfortable, and put a strain on their friendship, which no one wants. (Especially you!)
PRO TIP: If you have fan art that is all friendship and not romantic/sexual, send it to them! Everyone loves a drawing of themselves!
Examples: Minicat, H2ovanoss, and Phan.
DO: Spread positivity! Compliment each others fanfics and artwork. Support each other’s headcannons and opinions!
DON’T: Hate on someone’s fanfic or fan art if it display’s something you’re uncomfortable with, such as smut and/or triggering content. Although, said fanfics should be tagged accordingly and given the proper warnings.
PRO TIP: If you see fan art promoting any vile and inappropriate issues, REPORT IT. For example, a fanfic that someone wrote for a fandom I was in, was promoting Pedophilia and that IS NOT OK. Please take proper measures to get the fanfic promoting serious issues such as pro-rape, pedophilia, romantization of self-mutilation, and etc. removed.
Examples of this are in banana bus squad EVERY FANDOM.
DO: Send sweet tweets and comments that contain something along the lines of; “You two are so cute!” “I love your friendship!” and other sweet comments like that.
DON’T: Send tweets and comments that say something like, “They’re definitely fucking” “Are you two dating?” “Are you guys gay?” “I bet they secretly like each other! Look at all this evidence!” “You and your girlfriend/boyfriend need to break up so you can date [insert name here]!” and other comments along the line of those. It’s rude and disrespectful and makes them feel uncomfortable.
PRO TIP: If someone in your ship starts dating someone else, DO NOT ATTACK THEM. It’s rude, awful, and down right just nasty. It’s an extremely childish thing to do. Respect their partners like you would your favorite person.
Some examples of ships that have grown apart in real life because of excessive shipping and hate being sent their romatic partners are: Troyler, Septiplier, and H2ovanoss.
DO: Make friends within the fandom and have healthy discussions about other ships, headcannons, and posts.
DON’T: Attack someone if your OTP is their NOTP. Do not put hate on headcannon’s and fanfic about how “They would never do that in real life”. Fanfiction and headcannons are suppose to be fun. The way people write their fics are their own choice and maybe be inspired by things they have dealt with in the past. I know that when I write fanfics they can get a bit ooc because I focus on the story line, rather than the people I’m writing it about.
Some examples of shippers that have hated on others for the reasons above are: Destiel, Phan, and Jaspar.
Above all, keep the shipping, the fanfics, and the romantic/sexual fan art in the fandom. If they wanted to see it, they would ask for it, or find it themselves.
When he realised his equipment was causing so much damage, he chose to change direction, even when everyone was telling him he was “crazy” from the kidnapping, but apparently he’s “selfish”
He said that he “shouldn’t be alive” and that’s why he wanted to change and do something different with his life
He had nightmares after NY (where Steve told him it was a one-way trip and he nearly died), suffered from PTSD, but of course no one cares about these minor details, and JARVIS died as well, but again, who cares?? It’s not like they knew how important Jarvis was
Steve actually stood there, saying “you’re keeping secrets from me, I can’t believe this”, and then he goes onto NOT tell Tony that Bucky killed his parents, which, because he’s not thick, he knows is something Tony is extremely sensitive about, but apparently this is all in the past and we shouldn’t focus on that
Tony says he’ll help Steve, and then finds out about his parents, and tries to kill Bucky, but apparently he should’ve ‘controlled himself’ and ‘over-reacted’, because you know, it’s just a video showing his parents getting murdered by the person he’s standing right next to, no biggie
Let’s talk about shithead Clint saying you should “watch your back” with Tony because “there’s a chance he’ll break it”, where he’s referring to Rhodey. Really? And Natasha’s whole double-agent thing. So Tony was the one being being too violent? Tell me more.
And it’s sad that Peter was sent home, because when Tony recruited him, he was probably like “oh we’ll just try and stop them with a friendly fight” but nah, because TeamCap doesn’t care and Steve wants to crush Peter with a truck, and paralyse Rhodey in the process
Because Steve, who awoke after 70 years, thinks he knows everything and knows that those 117 countries are the ones that are wrong, and this gives him the right to do whatever he wants, with no regards to any consequences, becauseapparently he can never be wrong
Because Steve, the righteous person he is, had the decency to send Tony a letter saying “I’m sorry, but not really because everyone likes ME now, so call us if you need us, I guess I’ll drop by, because see? I’m a giving person.”
Even that line - “I don’t want you roaming around by yourself” like Steve, kindly gtfo, you missed the “because I decided to breakup the Avengers because I’m better than everyone else and I know what’s best for everyone even though 117 countries may disagree”.
Steve didn’t deserve the shield. The “Howard made it for Steve, not Tony” excuse is bs, because YES, I’m sure if Howard was there and knew Steve’s friend was gonna murder him and nearly kill his son he’d say “well, I guess I made it for you, so sure, take it.” Uh huh. UH HUHHH
Tony was dropping Peter off, joking around with him, making video vlogs, because he didn’t want to tell him that his best friend nearly killed him - and he tried his best to keep him out of trouble, prepare him for anything (+ the training wheels protocol thing), even if it meant taking the suit, because he said that “if you die, it’s on me” but nah, he’s a bad role model and only cares about himself.
Aaand lastly, did Tony not try, and try, and try, to find a middle ground? He was there telling Steve to sign or do something, but nah, that thickhead was like “soz can’t do it, don’t even wanna consider it”, but sure, it was Tony who betrayed everyone, because he didn’t warn them about what would happen if they…you know…broke the damn law
I even exaggerated when i talked about the infamous kiss (I’ve just seen the link you gave me). Replying to you with one of the most famous cc pic would be only being a jerk so..i only say to you November 19, 2012 and thinking about your standard of closeness… D and C were together at the end of 2012. Anyway, it’s time to be serious. I promised a pic that i found long time ago on assistant tag searching for something else ( another public pic i have to say). You know… i jumped on the cc boat on July 2013 and I’ve never had doubts if i have to be honest but that pic, that i will put under the tag more… warmed my heart.
I haven’t seen any posts about this yet, but I’m pretty sure we saw Zarkon and the previous paladins in the s3 trailer? And maybe a glimpse of the showdown between Zarkon and Alfor. Like?? I hope we get flashbacks and learn more about the previous paladins?? I wanna know what they were like and why Allura didn’t want to tell the paladins about them…
Chapter Eighteen summary: Zsasz and Ed both acknowledge and ignore their issues as they partner together to find Oswald. When they happen upon him, things become a little unhinged as Fish is not keen on giving Oswald up without a fight.
Welcome back! Who’s excited? You didn’t have to wait two weeks for a chapter this time. Only 5 days. I’m spoiling you.
!!READ THIS BEFORE CONTINUING!!
This chapter details a lot of violence, from torture, to a fair amount of murder and death. Things aren’t too heavily detailed so you should be okay, but just prepare yourself.

I’m certain that at some point the SMH team make a game out of doing random stuff in the background of Bitty’s vlogs without him noticing. They leave him alone when he’s filming in his bedroom, but whenever he’s cooking all bets are off as long as they can carry out their plan without interrupting the video.
Some highlights include:
Ransom walking past the kitchen balancing a tower of hockey pucks on his head.
Holster miming a dramatic battle with an invisible enemy, complete with an over the top, drawn out “death”.
Dex walking into frame, lying face down on the floor and just staying there unmoving for a full minute.
Shitty doing a handstand and walking past on his hands. He’s also wearing a shirt for once, not that it makes much of a difference because it ends up falling down over his face.
Nursey walking backwards and forwards past the kitchen every 30 seconds on the dot, each time wearing a slightly different but equally bizarre outfit.
Lardo throwing paper planes across the kitchen behind Bitty, trying to land them in the rubbish bin.
Tango likes to peek around the doorway and hold up pieces of paper saying hello to Bitty’s viewers.
The team learns that Whiskey can moonwalk when he casually does so down the hallway.
At first Jack doesn’t join in much, but there was a great moment when he realised that Bitty was filming as he was walking past, froze like a deer in headlights, then tried to sneak off-camera in the most awkward way possible.
As time goes on Jack starts to participate more and more in small, simple ways like moving stuff behind Bitty. He’s also the most likely to lose by interrupting the video because he can’t resist chirping Bitty, that boy is hopeless.
But once, during a Valentine’s day video at some stage after they come out, he does manage to sneak a whole heap of roses into the kitchen one by one.
Chowder is the undeniable winner with the time he stood in the background for an entire video, acting out all of Bitty’s instructions as if he were in an infomercial, and Bitty never once noticed he was there.
I’m pretty sure in canon they still haven’t seen any of Bitty’s videos so they never know how often their antics make it onto his channel, but sometimes they can hear Bitty editing and he’ll suddenly burst into laughter and that’s enough.
