I just remembered that another reason why I don't ship any of the big 4 is because of the shippers. The ships themselves are pretty bad, but the fans are even worse imo.
Also, I enjoy reading your analyses. :) They’re always so good and well thought out.
Fairy Tail is one of the most one-sidedly toxic fandoms I’ve ever seen. Naruto at least had equal opposing forces, and from what little I’ve seen of Voltron each side seems to give as good as got but Fairy Tail… it’s like the 90% just savagely crush the 10% and it’s absolutely exhausting to watch.
And, most of the reason I don’t interact with the fandom at large and tag what ship content I do have fairly obsessively.
