If there’s one thing that annoys me about “pro shippers” (I tend to use “shippers” in quotation marks because we’re all shippers…even antis but y’know), is this…bitterness. It really reminds me of how I felt about the DMMD fandom when I was 19 years old?
need to walk away sometimes.
If you’re pissy over a ship, over a fandom and it’s kind of getting to the point where your snarky little ass is coming out? Sure, vent but you don’t have to be a dick to other people, throw them under the bus just to satisfy yourself. It does nothing for anyone.
Like even Klance was starting to make me bitter but hey, I walked away. I’m not obligated to be here. It’s a choice and I decided to walk away, find something else to do and wow, suddenly I feel perfectly fine and less bitter.
tbh what boggles me more in fandom is the fight for what’s most canon. I never understood that growing up. If I was unsatisfied with something in canon (why am I thinking of the Pretear anime roflmao), I’d just….come up with something else, take it or leave it, etc. It’s…not that hard.
Other than getting upset over harassment and all the other bullshit that goes on in this hellsite, I really can’t understand where some of the rotten attitudes on both sides come from.
