@midnight-wicca: said @cupcakemolotov The point I was trying to make is about Plec being a fan-service writer. She claims to be feminist, but pushes toxic/abusive ships to cater to the largest most intense and unfriendly fandoms. i.e. Delena, Klaroline, etc. My question is, why are KC shippers reading posts tagged anti klaroline? Where’s the logic in that? I’m not arguing ships, I’m stating Plec disgusts me pushing fan service toxic relationships. TO season 5 trailer is proof of the baiting.
Okay so let’s take a moment here and be real. The reason you have people mad at you isn’t because we went trolling in the anti-tag for reasons to get salty. @klarolinedrabbles has way better things to do with her time and so do I. And tbh, one more person who is upset about our ship is hardly going to make anyone pause. The writers have been angry about us, the actors expressed dislike, and other fandoms have done it. For a while, it was the TO writing room theme song. So please, go be salty and angry in the anti tag. That’s why it exists. But let’s not pretend that you were unfairly attacked because you’d never post in the Klaroline tag when a good % of the responses you’ve gotten involve/lead with a strong Get Out of Our Tag discussion. Just because you’ve updated your tags in some weird attempt at gaslighting doesn’t make you right.
Now, that said, if you’d led with your response to me, without railing against a single fandom, you’d have a lot less pushback, even posting it in the Klaroline tag. Do you think you’re the only one utterly frustrated by Julie Plec being Julie Plec? The poor multishippers are struggling something fierce. But don’t try to sell me things that aren’t true.
Particularly when this is your opening line:
You know what I find most disturbing about the fan service forced KLAROLINE ship now polluting The Originals?’
Then *this* gem of compassionate understanding:
That shouldn’t be reward by giving them what they want. All that’s doing is bending over backwards like a spineless coward to give these psychopaths what they want. Being the nastiest, loudest cry babies shouldn’t be rewarded. If anything, people like these for any ship should have their ‘ship’ sank just for their ill behavior.’
You spent a paragraph railing against people you’ve never met and probably never interacted with. You’re not the first or the last who will do this, you’re not even the first to do it from a false moral high ground, but please don’t pretend that this complaint of yours isn’t ship driven and that your rhetoric was only meant to be cast on JP. Particularly when you’re pulling examples from things that have been laid at the feet of the KC Fandom, rightly or wrongly.
Look, I understand the frustration that comes from a television show going off what I consider the deep end and forcing me to watch something I hate, should I wish to keep watching. But unlike you, I also understand that my online interactions, my social media and the television I consume are mine to control. I get to decide what I see on a daily basis, and that’s why people are angry. You brought this into our safe space. Your vitriol was intended to shame, an attempt to make yourself look good and feel better about your bitterness by insulting entire fandoms because you were unhappy with something JP decided months ago.
