1. What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?*
From TVD, definitely ster*line and kl*mille - for many reasons, one of the main being that it’s just all…about the dudes and their Man Pain, plus both Caroline and Camille get treated like crap but it’s like they don’t even realize it, and the moment they get a smallest hint of their own opinion, it gets taken away.
5. Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?*
Oh, yes. E*riel from acotar would be a prime example. The thing is, even though I’m elucien AF, before acowar came out I would be pretty ok and even intrigued with come good crackship elain/azriel. But part of this fandom (I DO NOT want to generalize bc I know some ppl who ship them and are utterly lovely) got so intense about this pairing and their hate on Lucien (my precious ginger bean!) and general mischaracterization of all three involved that I’m just…I’m out, I can’t enjoy this paring anymore.
6. Has fandom ever made you enjoy a pairing you previously hated?*
Huh…maybe Eva x Chris from SKAM? I disliked them together quite a bit because Chris is just…such a fuckboy, as Vilde would say, but then I read some SKAM fic that portrayed them in a really interesting way and then I read some more mohnstad fics in particular and I was intrigued by all the possibilities for characters development to get those two together. And then, well, s4 finale happened and I am salty yet again.
10. Most disliked arc? Why?
STOP MAKING MOR MISERABLE AND GIVE HER SOME HAPPINESS AND A GIRLFRIEND aka remember that time sjm made Mor stay in a closet for 500 years and have her say it’s “good enough”, I’ve had the time of my life then
11. Is there an unpopular character you like that the fandom doesn’t? Why?
I’ll go with Nesta. Right now I think half of the fandom loves her and the other half hates her, but at first she definitely wasn’t that popular. And I adore her because she’s fierce and unapologetic and offers boundless opportunities as a character to dip into and analyze and develop.
