short shameful confession

I make no secret of the fact that I really hate shipping. I mean, *really* hate it. I have an intense dislike of the way fandom so often takes characters and ignores all the other interesting things they could do in order to focus entirely on their sex lives. Even the stuff that tries to reveal character through porn basically does nothing for me. What's worse, the attitude can affect canon, too. I believe that shipping ruined THE X-FILES and X-FILES fandom; I think shipping sank BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER; I give Harry Potter fandom the widest berth possible, and I think that relentless shipping in general is a drag on fandom and especially on fanfic. THIS I BELIEVE, etc.

That said: I ship this so fucking hard.

(Get in there, Robin, dammit!)
