Being overly-familiar with a series is such a weird burden sometimes because like
you’ll see some theory being passed around that you instantly know is wrong. Like it’s surprising to see people supporting it because the flaws in its logic are so glaringly obvious. Until it hits you that, yeah it’s wrong, but only because you were able to immediately remember the 5 second conversation between two background characters 17 minutes through s2e13 that definitively disproves it. And no casual fan would have any reason to remember that off the top of their head and it’s you who’s the weird human encyclopedia with a shot-for-shot memory the entire damn series.
Like at that point you don’t even know anymore whether to argue your point or just…maybe go outside for a little bit.
People who write/draw self-insert stuff are absolutely adorable and great and do not ever deserve to be shamed for that. I mean. Go and write a fic about your fave character falling in love with you. You’re amazing.
The thing that’s honestly hilarious about aggressive and moralistic anti shipping movements is that it literally does not matter at all.
Nobody outside of a very niche bubble and a small number of people even remotely gives a shit. They pour all this time and energy into something that absolutely nobody in the real world outside of the Internet gives a flying fuck about. It would be sad if it wasn’t so funny.
I had a thought that to get Ink away from him Error jokingly said he’d hug Ink on his birthday if he left Error alone for the next month or so expecting Ink to forget. Surprisingly Ink agrees and leaves. Come Ink’s birthday….he shows up and reminds Error of the little promise and Error doesn’t back down. Because from what I gathered he takes promises/truces very seriously. I also like to think Ink remembered only for the purpose of making Error suffer 💖.
