I don't get where this idea that Destiel shippers hate Sam comes from? I have never heard a Destiel shipper say they hate Sam.. and I follow A LOT of Destiel blogs. This alleged hate doesn't even crop up in Destiel fanfic (all the best Destiel fics I've read.. and, again, I've read A LOT.. feature Sam in a positive way.) I've heard/seen some criticism of Jared (and his fans) from time to time, but that's all. Never Sam.
Seriously, same. :p
I follow like 400 Destiel shippers, and I’d say that 90% of the biggest and most known blogs on the Destiel side of the SPN fandom are in there? Like the people whom everybody knows and thus their posts spread quickly and widely in the fandom? And not one of them hates Sam or makes negative posts about him? And I never see posts like that from other big blogs/or with many notes, on my dash either? Actually almost all of them are Team Free Will enthusiasts, and when they include Sam in their fanfic or art it’s always in a positive way?
Like, I’m sure that there’s a handful of Destiel shippers out their that dislike Sam (just like there are Destiel shippers out there who dislike whatever other random characters), the fandom is pretty huge after all, but I never see any specific Sam hate-spreading worth mentioning, outside of a stray troll blog here and there that usually quickly comes and goes?
On a rare occasion I see someone rant like “UUUUGH >insert team free will member here< IS MAKING TERRIBLE DECISIONS AGAIN”, but this goes for literally all three of them and it’s not only Sam being called out, tbh.
Honestly, ask me out of all of these people that I follow to point you to someone who posts or spreads Sam hate, I couldn’t point you to one? Even though I follow plenty of folks who aren’t really optimistic about the show itself anymore and criticize the writing, Sam hate is very rare?
Truly, one of the biggest mysteries in this fandom is the ‘Destiel shippers hate Sam’ rumor. Unless there are some hidden Sam-hate cults on Twitter or Facebook that I don’t know about? :p
But here on tumblr/AO3 I just???
