I believe SC never minded the shipping. They had as much fun as everyone. But then people lost control and took things too far. Started hurting their friends, real SO's. we would all still be shipping and having fun with them had we kept things light and as a fantasy.
How did people lose control and take things too far? I am genuinely curious. From what I’ve seen, Shippers enjoy blogging and tweeting about Sam and Cait, sometimes @ them. Sometimes we get worked up over silly things, but such is the nature of fanning.
I don’t support going to Sam or Cait’s friend’s accounts and bombarding them with invasive questions, but, again, not necessarily Shippers.
What I cannot fathom is entertaining fans with flirtation and affection for YEARS if you’re not together. How do you expect to find an actual significant other if you’re snuggling and flirting with your co-star on camera and over SM? Look at all the receipts @elle came up with! And we have more. They know we know we have more ; )
