Do you have any tips on how to stop shipping camren? Asking for a friend
At some point you have to realize that it’s over, and you must move on. Right?
Moving on is for real people with their real problems and real relationships IRL. There’s a reason we decided to get so emotionally invested in the drama that manifests from camren. It’s because of the emotions they elicit inside us. In other words, THE FEELS. And any shipper will tell you that feels can completely wreck you. So here’s a short list of activities that will keep out of a panic once you have realized camren “was never real”.
Rewatch camren videos (AKA “Denial”)
What you do is get a lot of napkins, lots of kleenex and gather a list of camren moments, camren cracks or any scenes they shared together, and make a playlist on YouTube. It’s always important to have some sort of playlist or queue handy so that you can always pull it up and watch whenever you’re down that our ship sunk.
Reblog the GIFs (AKA “Poor Man’s Denial”)
Follow a few users who either reblog GIFs or make their own, and make sure to reblog or like them yourself. That way, you can always watch our flawless camren ship in a vacuum state filtered to highlighted and accented colors and reminisce of what could have been.
Write Fanfiction (AKA “Create the Narrative”)
It’s 2017: if you don’t like reality, you can change that. Why not? Oh so an anti thinks that our ship is buried six feet under? WELL THEY’RE WRONG. And we will prove it to them by writing the smuttiest Fanfiction ever. See how hot that was?
Let’s face it: we all don’t have the time nor the essential tools to write stories. So, sometimes you just have to be a fan of someone else’s fanfiction. And that’s totally okay, too. As long as there are a lot of sex scenes between your camren. (Okay, fine, and some “fluff,” as well.)
Pretend you’re one-half of camren (AKA “Become Delusional”)
Trick your brain into thinking that you are Camila or Lauren. Act out scenes and potential storylines alone in your bedroom. Cry appropriately because you are both (a) Forever alone and (b) Delusional. Realize that your potential storyline would make for some good fanfiction.
Branch out to other camren shippers (AKA “Burn Book”)
Sometimes the best way to get over a breakup — either real or fictional — is to just hangout with some likeminded people and cry… and also just curse out those responsible. Get on Tumblr, search on Twitter, find those who are just as upset as you and decide to cry. Then exchange tweets about how awful reality is. Cry again.
So… let me see if I get it:
Ships + what people ‘who think they know better than anyone how to live’ say:
Climon: thats disgusting !!! They are like brother and sister.
Jalec: thats incest ! Even if jace and alec arent brothers. Also its homophobic and racist in some ways that we didnt figure it out yet but we will… also im assuming you only watch the tv show since you dont know alec isnt in love with jace (ok. How in the world is my fault that the tv show wanted to make jalec a thing)
Clalec: thats homophobic, racist and you are probably hitler. You are erasing his sexuallity even if your ship is only based on manips bc they dont get along so they dont have scenes together in the tv show, alec is gay and your manips are making him straight. Ugghh you probably are a straight white girl who lives just to upset us.
Rizzy: thats horrible, we want sizzy bc we arent against cannon couples (check climon description*) and its also unhealthy bc they are both on drugs and i didnt expect that so i dont like it. Also they are making it look like all latinos are on drugs.
Clace: thats incest even if they arent brother and sister just bc i hate straight couples and im different than the rest of the world so i dont like it.
Alec with every male/female character no matter if its brotp or otp since they only ship him with magnus: we dont have excuses but we will find it. You should stop with your homophobia and racism… but what can we expect from a straight white girl? (???? Why)
Saphael: we want sizzyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Sizzy: uuuuughhh there you are again with your straights couples ugh i cant with these straights white girls (???? Why x2)
Magnus with every character in the world no matter if it fits or not except camille: yesssss bc he is bisexual.
Malec: perfect. They are flawless. If you dont ship it you are homophobic and racist and if you ship it but ur straight you probably think they are hot and theres no love because you are a straight whit-
Then i see posts saying this: “i cant with this show everyone is so shippeable. They all have chemestry and are beautiful. (Read all the descriptions of all the ships. If they are all shippeables why cant i ship them without being judge?)
I dont understand you guys, so I guess I’m gonna do it in my way because all this time I’ve been trying to do everything that you said to make you happy i dont even know why… so, i’m done. Good night.
