i can call to mind the visual design of exactly one person’s desktop theme here on tumblr dot calm and it isn’t my own, so i hope yall are viewing my shit on mobile cause that’s the one and only Official Authorized Dadbob Aesthetic Blog Theme
alright so. im gonna assume this is the same anon? i think?
sorry guy, you kinda rambled there for a bit so im not too sure what you’re trying to say?
like you read the fanfic but the fanfic where they have sex is what squicks you out. okay so. don’t. read it?
but for that top one you bring something up that i want to address and that is NONE OF US ACTUALLY WANT SHIPBOYS TO HAPPEN
like. no. we don’t want griffin to leave his family or nick to leave his girlfriend? WE DON’T WANT THAT. I ESPECIALLY DON’T WANT THAT.
shipping isn’t “I want these two (or more) people to get together” its, “this relationship is interesting to me and i want to explore it”
thats what shipping has ALWAYS been. only recently has it become this bizarre ship war/anti hate mongering bullshit that has been brought on by a much younger crowd.
if someone harrasses them and says hey ditch your life and love for what i want, they aren’t a fan, they’re a stalker. a broken person who needs help. when i was in the rt fandom, we had those. we called them out. the rpf fandom were the first to leap up and shoot down the harassers in the community.
i know that when people think rps/rpf, they think of phandom and the 1d shippers who harassed and bullied and threatened anyone who they thought was a threat but hey guess what? in those communities, there is a large, almost majority of people who shot those people down.
don’t accuse us of being fucking homewreckers. there is no reality in which we would truly want them to be unhappy. this is for us. we don’t show them, we don’t tell them anything. we keep it to ourselves because we’re polite and we know that there is a boundary between fandom and content.
