Fandom is a fucking strange thing. Shipping I always thought was basically enjoying seeing or the desire to see characters together in a romantic/sexual sense? You can ship to a number of different degrees from ‘huh, that’s nice’ to ‘OMGOTPOTPOTP’.
Maybe my definition of shipping is so tinted towards negative that I just refuse to do it? Like even when I accidentally the slash that’s more me dealing with… personal frustrations… than actual shipping, yeah?
Like I don’t even know any more I don’t get shipping at all that’s like another strange can of worms.
Also yes, fandom is a fucking strange thing.
