I’m guilty too, I ship the boys. HOWEVER, I have never shipped the real people behind the characters, nor have I used their last names. It’s just being an asshole if you harass someone into kiss/etc with their friend, so don’t fucking do it. DO NOT use the real ones’ last names. PLEASE. Edd wouldn’t want this, seriously. Maybe we could even clear up some of the ships from the main tag for Eddsworld? I’m not saying “Don’t ship them!!!” but how about when we write or draw one of the ships, we tag it instead as ‘Sinsworld’ like all of the nsfw artists? It would be doing a huge favor for Matt if he ever decides on looking through the main tag. Also, don’t tag the characters in their main tags when its nsfw or shipping, like ‘ew tom’ or ‘eddsworld tom’ instead you could tag it as ‘sw tom’ ‘sinsworld tom’ or even just tag the ship.
Please help straighten this fandom up!!! They’re simple, considerate things that can be easily done! It’s just Matt and Edd’s family, possibly Paul but I don’t know and don’t you dare bother him about it, so let’s make it as easy as we can for Matt.He doesn’t deserve this, nobody does.
Eddsworld is one of the greatest things i have ever found and has inspired me so much, even makes it a bit easier to be happy! I haven’t even been in this fandom for half a year, please don’t let Edd down. Keep Edd’s world spinning.
me when there’s a straight couple in a book: is this really necessary? it doesn’t add to the story, it’s annoying, it’s boring, it takes up to much time, it’s overly done, it’s forced, and it subtracts from the real plot. just…romantic subplots aren’t really needed, ya know?
me when there’s a gay couple in a book: i…have never felt more connected to a story. i have never seen anything so beautiful. true love is amazing ,it’s wonderful, it’s terrific, and i hope to find more,
I really wish I could ship Superc0rp. I’ve tried, god, I’ve tried watching it on mute, I’ve tried imaging a different actor, I’ve tried ignoring the show and just reading fic and it just does not work for me. I can’t get into it. It’s like how the wand chooses the wizard. You don’t choose your ship - your ship chooses you. And Superc0rp just…doesn’t call to me. If you love it, that’s great for you, but it just doesn’t speak to me.
I think the only way I could would be if they cast a different actor for L*na, because Katie’s “acting” is really not something I can be invested in. And if the fandom was completely different - more like Supercat fandom was last season, less like “finally! a real ship hahaha can you believe people shipped her with that fossil? gross.” and less…young? I don’t know if that’s the right word, but last season literally all of us knew it would never be canon, but we’re old school and enjoy non-canon ships and subtext.
Newer fandom is the one that’s all “this ship is endgame!” and calls non-canon ships “crack ships”, and responds to legitimate criticism about the ridiculous romantic plot lines with “yeah she should just date [female character]”, when my problem isn’t with the sex of the person she’s dating, it’s with the storyline as is. And that’s not a criticism of this show specifically, that’s a criticism of the greater trend in fandom - where you have ship wars over which ship is likely to be “endgame”, and in older fandoms, that just wasn’t done.
I wish I could ship it. Season 2 might be bearable if I did. The only thing I care about on this show is the Danvers sisters and their space dad. And we almost never get scenes like that anymore. I could be here for S*nvers, and I was when I thought it would be a season-long slow burn with time to establish Maggie as a person, but as is, I’m just watching Alex date a sexy lamp.
I don’t know. There is literally nothing about season 2 I like. I’m so disappointed, because I loved season 1 wholeheartedly. But this is a completely different show. Season 1 was about family, about being stronger together, how family was more than blood bonds, how there were all sorts of different ways to be a hero, about learning who you are and who you can be. Season 2 is about romance, about watching actors in their 30s play characters in their 20s who behave like 15 year olds, and it just looks ridiculous. If this was the show the CW wanted, and clearly it is, why didn’t they just reboot it and recast the show and set it in high school or college? Because that’s what season 2 feels like for me. A badly written high school AU.
And I guess, if Superc0rp does nothing for you, if you can’t get invested in S*nvers because Maggie could be replaced by a sexy lamp and still have the entire plot make sense, and Kara continues to have no plot line that is not about romance…what is the point of even watching anymore.
If you need me, I’ll be over here, watching season 1.
