This looks like such a mess to anyone paying attention. Several weeks ago Antis were in a tailspin like the one Shippers are in now. How much more of this before it effects the show, their charities, and their careers? We're paying attention because we're passionate about Outlander and the actors. Great idea to shit on all of us (sarcasm alert).
it already has affected many of us. My enthusiasm for anything OL related is in the dumps right now. I wish it wasn’t and I wish I could get back to the love I had for it when I first joined this fandom but I’m actively looking for another show to watch and/or fandom to get into bc this one is sickening and not healthy. I read the first book though because I wanted to watch the TV show. Like it was always about watching the show which is maybe why I can’t separate it all now.
I don’t regret anything though. I certainly don’t regret raising/donating money to WCC. At the end of the day, it’s a great charity and I’m really glad Cait made me aware of it. I don’t regret the friendships I’ve made because I fully expect to keep those well after OL goes off the air. And, if we’re being honest, I don’t regret being a shipper. I’ve had some really amazing, happy, wonderful times on this ship and met some fabulous women and I’m glad I fell in love with Cait and Sam. I don’t mean to make this sound like I’m leaving, I’m not, but I’m just saying. It’s not regret for me at all. Mostly just disappointment and frustration.
