Honestly, people just need to stop overshipping.
Interesting fact: No, they don’t.
People can ship just as much as they want, and who they want. They can ship a completely non-canon pairing, and ship it to the ends of the earth. Or, they can ship nothing. They can write fanfiction, or draw fanart, or they can write analytic essays detailing points within a canon, to justify why they ship what they ship. People can disagree with what is considered canon, and they can find subtext in places where there is none. They can discuss, joke, tease, laugh, and argue their ships with other like minded people.
But do you know what people do just need to stop doing? Sending hateful anonymous messages about things that have no effect on them in any way, shape, or form. And this goes for each end of the shipping spectrum. I don’t go into someone’s ask box, berating them for not shipping something. What right do they have, coming into mine, doing the same thing because I do?
This one here? Is possibly the most polite ‘hate anon’ I’ve ever received about johnlock. Most get deleted, because I don’t like to subject my followers to homophobic slurs and bigotry.
