Shipping Cycle: From being a casual viewer to a hardcore fan
do you know that feeling when you start shipping this pair from tv/movie/book/anime/manga/real life/multiverse without the certainty that they will end up together?
you first remark on your OTPs’ palpable chemistry, then go in a fangirling mode in every OTP moments they have
made you even more convinced that they really REALLY REALLY SHOULD END UP TOGETHER
you join your OTPs’ fandom and made an oath to SHIP THEM TILL YOU DIE ( figuratively )
when you’re into deep that real life is getting in your way with your OTP
then you meet other shippers on the rival fandom and things start to turn nasty
you might even start a fandom war
but the most heartbreaking of it all is when the people behind the tv/movie/book/anime/manga/real life/multiverse start screwing around and messes with your OTP
ALAS! your OTP is NOT CANON!!
when you cant make sense ( or in a very deep denial state ) on why your NOTP become canon
so you end up with a broken fangirling heart
and you force yourself to move on and immerse yourself with fanfictions/fanworks of your co-OTPs, spending your time with whole lot of wishful thinking…
and just when…
when you thought you have already recover from the trauma of your OTP not being canon you started watching another series
and the vicious cycle begins again…
