1. what otps in your fandom(s) do you just not get?
i still have that shitty opinion that otps in the exo fandom (or just /any/ kpop/group fandom. i mean, real life people) are just a matter of taste, so saying you do not get an otp, or that they are delusional and stupid seems kind of odd to me lmfao. every single one of otps are a matter of personal taste when it comes to dynamics, but yeah. in any way, in the exo fandom, the only couples i can’t really say i don’t ship in any way at the moment are hunhan and, sadly, baekyeol. tbqh i can ship baekyeol in a platonic way, but after all the shit i got over simply shipping krisbaek, and the dozen of asks screaming at me how real baekyeol is, how baekhyun probably haaates kris and loves chanyeol, how i am dumb and stupid for shipping krisbaek, i was so put off by the shippers that i can’t wrap my head around shipping them anymore.
in other fandoms, like, naruto. i mean I CAN’T STAND THAT WEIRD ASS SHIPS like why the fuck would you ship ino with gaara like por favor? itachi with lee? POR FAVOR???????
6. has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?
fandom has ruined baekyeol for me in a way that actually saddens me. i honestly enjoyed the ship, but the way baekyeol shippers act towards any ship that “”“”“threatens”“”” (lmfao at this because again ////fictional///////) their ship is disgusting. i was already pissed when baekyeol had a major hiatus and all i could see were byeol shippers trashing on krisyeol. and now krisbaek? and then it’s funny because if you try to defend yourself, you are the delusional one, trying to dictate other people’s opinion or being rude. baekyeol shippers that came to my blog to trash on me, or send hatemail to chels (and still send hatemail for her i mean. how sad is your life?) totally killed the ship for me.
but tbqh, i don’t really feel like i belong in this fandom anymore. all the hate, all the rumours, the way everyone goes to each others throat. the way people value their otps over real people. over real people’s feelings. over fucking friendships. it kills me. it puts me off. i still love the boys, or at least some of them, but i can’t really say i feel like a part of the fandom anymore.
