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.

Word to all of this! I may be squicked by your H/Hr shipping ;) but it doesn't change the fact that you're my bff. ♥

On a more general note, I wish more people felt like this. It's really truly not a competition. Fic and art and vids etc. exist so that we can explore behind-the-scenes and non-canon ships and so on, which is why we're here in the first place.

XD Why, thank you, bb! *snorfle*

It's truly isn't worth fighting over. Creativity is born from the little details. Which is why we have so much fun with RV. There are so many little pearls there waiting to be found. And that can be said for most pairings in most fandoms. Enjoy your fandoms and ships. At least these days we have a platform it share it with others.

How do you think people felt back in the 80s even? They never had the opportunities to talk to other fans in the medium we do.
