maybe it's because I've been in slash fandoms for decades and am used to ignoring canon for the sake of shipping, but who cares what canon says. make everyone gay in your fanfics, who gives a fuck
@tozka that's such a mood. I don't understand this fandom trend at all. I get it as a creative choice for a specific story, or a personal choice if someone just really enjoys that kind of constraint, but why would you police each other over it?
@tozka maybe it's ironically the lack of implicit shared understanding that the creators wouldn't want any slash shipping at all, so you might as well do whatever.
How sad. When I started in fandom, it was just after "Y isn't gay, it's just [character X]" went away - people talked about it, but I never encountered it. This feels like a step backwards - not for any moral values, simply for creative freedom.
