"Very well put, thank you." (Jensen Ackles)
This is one big reason why people begging (throwing fits) for ships to be made canon bug me so much. I like that Supernatural is a show about platonic male relationships and men showing deep emotions— I take a great amount of joy and pleasure in seeing that explored. I don’t need or want any of it to become romantic. That would ruin the show for me—so to those who say no one would mind? Not true. I would mind. I’ve invested 9 years of my life into this show because it hit on something I desperately love seeing in TV and movies—men who love deeply in a completely platonic manner. Seeing platonic male/male relationships and dynamics.
Sometimes I feel like people insisting on ships can’t see that its even possible for straight (or gay men) to have strong, engaging platonic relationships or that it is just as important as if it were romantic. Its like saying men can’t love that deeply unless its romantic (or that romantic love is more important than any other kind of love). Women can, but not men? What? No. Just no. It is possible and I love seeing that on this show—it makes it special. More special than the million romances on every other show.
Besides, that’s what fanon stuff is for, things we don’t get to see onscreen. That’s one of the things that makes fanon works so much fun. If the show met all of our individual needs, why would we bother creating our own stuff? For me, fanfiction was about exploring storylines that didn’t go the way I wanted them to or didn’t exist (or just didn’t go into the resolution deeply enough). There have been plenty of things even as a non-shipper that I was gutted about not getting, but I’m not having a fit about it. I’d rather go read a fiction that fulfills that need or write it myself than use my every waking minute to bully people related to the show over it. I don’t ship, but I figure its the same kind of thing.
EVERYONE WHO REBLOGS THIS POST BY AUGUST 20TH WILL GET A PIECE OF ART IN THERE INBOX BASED ON THEIR BLOG
Whether it be fanfiction, original stories, drabbles, songs, poems, books, or anything that has to do with creative words, then reblog. Let’s gather all the writers of Tumblr together.
Just me, but I believe that following you means that we like everything about your blog not only SPN related stuff, so if you don’t mind me checking reading your other stuff I’ll keep doing it.
Oh sure! Go ahead—I just know there are some who may not feel the same way and I always worried about it when I’m posting. But, I figure if I tag, then they can do something about it if its an issue and I can stop worrying about it either way :).
