shipping is NOT purely about sex
shipping is NOT believing two characters are already in a relationship
shipping is NOT wanting the show/book/movie to be purely about your ship
shipping is NOT automatically ignoring the actual overall plot
shipping is NOT a game
shipping IS, however, personally interpreting two characters’ feelings for each other as romantic and wanting their feelings to come to fruition so they can be happy

When I was 8, I didn’t find a wardrobe to Narnia.
When I was 11, my Hogwarts letter didn’t come.
When I was 12, my satyr didn’t show up to take me to Camp Half-Blood.
I’m counting on you to take me on an adventure when I’m 50.

Dear Author of the Week,
You think fanfic is a personal affront to the many hours you’ve spent carefully crafting your characters. You think fanfic is “immoral and illegal.” You think fanfiction is just plagiarism. You think fanfiction is cheating. You think fanfic is for people who are too stupid/lazy/unimaginative to write stories of their own. You think there are exceptions for people who write published derivative works as part of a brand or franchise, because they’re clearly only doing it because they have to. You’re personally traumatized by the idea that someone else could look at your characters and decide that you did it wrong and they need to fix it/add original characters to your universe/send your characters to the moon/Japan/their hometown. You think all fanfic is basically porn. You’re revolted by the very idea that fic writers think what they do is legitimate.
We get it.
Congratulations! You’ve just summarily dismissed as criminal, immoral, and unimaginative each of the following Pulitzer Prize-winning writers and works:

Experimenting with a different sexual or gender identity does not make you a bad person!
Both gender and sexuality are spectrums. And they evolve. They change. They are fluid.
Some people always know who they are. Some people are set in stone. Others fluctuate throughout their daily life. Others may go through a large part of their life knowing that they are one thing, and ten years later? They know they are another.
That doesn’t make them bad, or fakers, or anything.
It makes them human beings.
Don’t be the gender and identity police. Don’t de-legitimise other people’s searches and struggles to understand themselves.
Just because it is not they way you are, not the way you understand your own sexuality and gender doesn’t make them bad or wrong!
If you don’t like music, we cannot be friends.
I mean, who the fuck hates music?
Harry Potter is not just a fandom.
It’s a lifestyle.
