Someone 1: I really like *insert show/film/game/etc* because it doesn’t rely on romance. It shows you can be a strong character and have a strong relationship with other characters without making them fall for each other. After all, it’s important to show and emphasize platonic relationships too.
Someone 2: Cool!
Someone 1: By the way, I ship *main character 1* and *main character 2*. They’re such a cute pairing.
