Ferd's post wasn't about this, but it made me think of my thoughts on this.

When it comes to OTP, we can all be pretty fierce in defense of our own. Especially when it's official canon. But in the end, everyone has their own choices of who should be together. Fine example? While I love my Clois and its 70+ years of canon, I'm also a huge HP Harry/Hermione fan. That said, I'm not going to dislike you just because you like Harry/Ginny or Ron/Hermione. I may be physically ill (*wink) over it, but it's your OTP. Who am I to fuss, especially since there's canon for it? I'll state my opinion, but I'm not going to attack you for it. On LFN? I was a Micheal/Nikita shipper (despite her occasional pettiness and his constant need to keep secrets) while many of the fandom shipped the two of them with everyone else but each other. Same with any pairing from SV. I liked Lana with him for about the first two years, then I really wanted him with Chloe for several years (until he hurt her too much and the Lana thing was just a never-ending cycle), and now I like the Clois. Honestly, everyone has dated everyone else over there and their canon is totally different from any other version of the universe. What's the point in fighting? In the end, my OTP is the pairing of the Movieverse, which is the one that's important to me. Beyond that? I'm happy with what I get. (I can hear the L&C fans on my F-List snickering even now. :P Except that version! You guys can keep that whole series! *LOL* No, really! XD)

My point is, I'm not just going to dislike someone for their pairing choices. That's stupid. There's more to life than fighting over that. And there are too many people out there that are interesting that I'd like to know to let an OTP stop me.

*looks up at the post* Does it show that this has been bugging me for a while? Okay, well, there's my twenty-eight cents. Back to your regularly-scheduled programming.

Wow, I'm long-winded!

Agreed. If we can be down with it, why can't they? I mean, come on! It's not the worst thing in the world to like a different ship. It's such a small thing in comparison with the rest of life.

XD I actually do like the way that the Clana started out. I think he needed to have a relationship to cut his teeth on and learn with. In the first couple of years, it was very sweet. The point at which I started to dislike Lana was when her eye started wandering and all we heard was 'Secrets and Lies!'

I really liked he and Chloe together and rooted for them a long time, up until around season 6 or so, but Clark just hurt her too often for me to like it any more. I was actually relieved when Jimmy came on just because I figured that it would break the cycle. It just got too painful to watch her keep trying when he'd let it go.

I really didn't want the Clois together yet until last year. I really loved them as just friends until then. There had been enough time passed for it to start making sense that he saw her that way.

And that's awesome, actually. I really do like Chloe even now. My biggest problem is that I hated the way the writers were treating her last year. I think they really did assassinate everything good about her for the whole Doomsday storyline. It just made her look like the bad guy in so many ways. Last year's final ten episodes just rubbed me the wrong way and they really did botch it for us all, regardless of your pairing.

I'm not always happy with the way they write her this year, but I understand what they're trying to do. At least now she gets a part in the larger scale of the story.

And oh, amen! I can see why the others like it, but I can't handle that much comedy in my Superman. I really can't. And after having Reeve and Kidder as your pairing for so long, Hatcher and Cain just didn't measure up. Good for the fans that love it, but it's more for them. I'll stick to RV. :D
