I usually keep to this rule for the most part, though if I turned down every ship request that made me uncomfortable, there would be quite a lot of ship requests that I turn down simply on the basis of personal preference. But for the ones I don’t like, I tend suck it up and do them, even if they make me uncomfortable, so long as they follow my rules for submission.
This is kind of different, though. My discomfort comes partially due to preference, sure, but largely because of uncertainty. I’m uncomfortable because I don’t know what to do.
If I still decide to go ahead with the requests concerning Cuphead and Mugman, they’d probably be the only non-ship requests that I do. Picking the requests that aim more for fluff and can be interpreted as unrequited love rather than anything all that romantic ( think Dipper’s crush on Wendy if any of you have seen Gravity Falls, or Spike and Rarity if you’re more familiar with My Little Pony). But this is all what ifs at the moment, since I’m still not entirely sure if this is even the right approach or not.
