No lie I get so much satisfaction out of the fact that XenaxGabrielle shippers outnumber XenaxAres shippers. Normally the queer ships are on the outside and we're looked at as crazy and "seeing stuff that's not there". Not with Xena and Gabrielle. They're canonical soulmates and XenaxAres shippers are the ones who have to reach to make their ship work. Damn does it feel good to not be in the minority.

Hey there Anon!

Yeah I know exactly what you mean. I do not enjoy other shippers’ suffering but I think people who only ever ship het pairings have no idea what it’s like for the rest of us who have to live off crumbs. They have no idea what it’s like to be called “delusional” (*cough* Swan Queen *cough*). Even if their ship is not canon no-one calls them delusional simply because of the fact that their pairing is made up of a man and a woman and therefore is more “valid” and for some reason always has even the slimmest chance of actually happening. It’s heterosexism 101 unfortunately….

Anyway yeah, it does feel good to be part of a fandom where the biggest ship by a mile is a queer one and is actually supported by the fandom and cast. *cough* ouat *cough*
