Look guys, i’m not a Sarumi fan either, FAR from it, but if people want to squeal joyfully over how they think a poster of their ship looks incredibly shippy, can’t we just be quiet and let them have their fun times without trying to spoil it for them by sneering at them and trying to rub it in their faces that ‘oh don’t be so delusional it’s not shippy at ALL stop being so despo.’? People will see what they want to see and you putting them down just because you happen to have a different opinion is not going to deter them, it’s just going to create a lot of unnecessary hard feelings and drama.
I mean yes I do often think and grumble to myself (and to Nerin too because she generally feels the same way I do about Sarumi) that the K fandom is way too flooded with Sarumi stuff especially because goddammn it K marketing team can you stop churning out Sarumi stuff when it already comprises like 90% of all the K stuff out there, and I confess that sometimes I do roll my eyes when a particularly shippy new (or more like so what else is new) Sarumi official art gets rolled out, but I usually grumble privately and to people whom I know feel the same way, and not publicly where I know I’ll probably piss off lots of other people who don’t feel the same way.
Because what’s the point in trying to make people feel bad about their ship when I can spend the time waxing lyrical about my own lovely ship instead. Putting Sarumi down is not going to make the number of MikoTata shippers magically increase. (Just an example, no one’s actually done that as far as I know). I’m not going to try to deprive Sarumi shippers of being able to enjoy their ship in peace and make people unhappy when that time is better spent trawling though tumblr looking at gorgeous MikoTata art to make myself happy.
That said, I suppose it’s hypocritical of me to post this because really, who am I to tell people what they should and shouldn’t post. But sometimes I just feel like people spend too much time focusing on the negative things that they don’t have time to enjoy the positive things. And that’s a shame.
