I make no secret of the fact that I really hate shipping. I mean, *really* hate it. I have an intense dislike of the way fandom so often takes characters and ignores all the other interesting things they could do in order to focus entirely on their sex lives. Even the stuff that tries to reveal character through porn basically does nothing for me. What's worse, the attitude can affect canon, too. I believe that shipping ruined THE X-FILES and X-FILES fandom; I think shipping sank BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER; I give Harry Potter fandom the widest berth possible, and I think that relentless shipping in general is a drag on fandom and especially on fanfic. THIS I BELIEVE, etc.

That said: I ship this so fucking hard.

I had no idea that this comic even existed before now. But if there's a chance that they really will get it on in the next comic, I'll check it out again.

Dude, I am with you. At least in the days of XF, there was a hell of a lot of gen fic out there. Every fandom I've been in since then has been dominated by either slash or het shipping.

That said, in the secret of my heart I occasionally ship Tony/Pepper. BUT IT ALWAYS GOES BAD IN THE END. That is my excuse.

YOU NEED A BOOK

A POEM EVERY DAY

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
