“This poster is insulting to other shippers!!”
Okay, if you are so invested in a show that you find it insulting that the promo department focuses on the actual canon ship and not your fanon ship…… stop. Pet a dog. Plant a tree. Do yoga.
The promo department owes you nothing. I don’t care what your sexuality is or the impact said ship had on your life….. The promo department (and the writers and actors for that matter) owe you nothing. Promoting CS’s wedding (ie the wedding of the main character that is happening very soon) is NOT ABC attacking you and intending upset you. Its their JOB to promote what’s canon and what brings viewers.
I get it. Your ship won’t become canon. Half your ship is dead. It didn’t go the way you hoped. You don’t like CS. That sucks. But don’t throw fits or find it “insulting” that ABC are doing their damn jobs. And frankly I feel bad for the mature, rational people in these fandoms who are made to look bad by a minority made up of toddlers throwing fits left right and centre.
CS is canon and ABC will promote it. Cry yourself a river, build a bridge, cover the bridge in glitter and GET OVER IT.
this tom glynn-carney situation was my tipping point. i unfollowed almost all my 1d blogs except yours and a few others. with the slow pace everything is moving, i'd encourage other people who have been stressed out to do something similar. distancing oneself from sources of negativity is healthy. thanks for keeping your blog a place of rational thought for those of us watching from the sidelines. hope you're doing well and looking out for number one ✌️
