The fact that so many people (or just one sad, lonely person) are coming into the Pharmercy shippers inboxes just to tell us our ship “won’t happen” and to insult us and our ship shows you how insecure they are. They feel threatened, and much like a wounded animal, they lash out in retaliation.
Mainly because they find it hard to come to terms with the fact that the game director prefers Pharmercy and admits our ship is better.
And it just goes to show you how powerful Pharmercy is, and that we’re just growing in strength and enduring in resilience with each affirmation merited out by the dev team and the VAs.
Not to mention all of the streamers and professional artists who are fans of the ship too (see Irene Koh and Jen Bartel for details).
Our fandom is increasing in ranks and numbers despite the fact the amount of hate that’s been foisted against it. And people who don’t like our ship just can’t handle that. (Mainly because they hate the idea of gay people, and lgbt+ women especially, being happy, because same-gender love is gross to them. Tis such sad lives they lead.)
And hey, if you feel a little discouraged, just remember that the things they’re currently saying about us, are the same things they said about Korrasami.
They said Korrasami “would never happen” either. And yet …
Why would you say something like that, like you’re trying to test me? I’m used to being blamed for my own failures! But this time, I’m anxious because my mistakes would reflect on you, too! I’ve been wondering if you secretly want to quit. Just have more faith than I do that I’ll win! You don’t have to say anything, just stand by me!
