Hello! I'm really impressed at how much love your ship gets. I often hear that people hate OC x Canon ships. I have an OC x Canon ship myself but I'm way to afraid that it will get hated. Do you have any advice for me? :) <3
Aw, I was a bit afraid too when I started posting about them, it’s been a few months but I’m still overwhelmed by every like/reblog/message, or cute tag.
I’ve often been too shy to show my art, but… I am glad I took the risk, because… gosh, every little thing from you guys means the world to me !
A lot of people are scared of getting hate. It’s sad because we should all be able to share what we love and create stories ! Especially shippings, it’s just crushes and love, it’s not meant to harm anyone. I do believe most people will enjoy stories with you, and share theirs with you too, and if they don’t like it, they’ll ignore it (it’s totally understandable that we don’t enjoy everything, too ! It doesn’t mean you’re a bad person if you don’t support everything from everyone !)
What I mean is, creating stories, shipping, it’s not bad, not wrong. So you shouldn’t be scared or shy. You should only feel love for them, curiosity for their story, joy to build around these characters. Not shame or fear.
And I think it’s important to feel good about ourselves and what we do, right ? ^^
But of course, if someone wants to be rude just to be rude, it’s hard to avoid ;;
So for advices…
Don’t be ashamed of what makes you happy, what you love.
I think it helps when people can see how happy it makes you… happiness spreads, you know ? It shows in what you do, and people feel it when they look/read. So don’t be scared to show how happy it makes you !
Be optimistic, each cute message means the world, and if there’s a bad one ? Depending on the kind of message, you can either ignore or try to reply politely, but try not to get mad owo Don’t let this stop you ! The good it brings you is way more important ! ❤
I hope… it helps a bit. I hope you do post ! And I truly hope it brings you as much joy as Khadgrin for me ❤
