how to make friend not sad
- tell joke?
- give thing?
- follow them around mumbling YOUR HAIR IS PRETTY YOU SMELL NICE YOU’RE GOOD AT STUFF?
- say I LOVE YOU at random time repeatedly?
- stare at them until the sad falls off?
I DON’T GET THIS HOW DOES IT WORK I’M SORRY
So in a post today mostly unrelated to what I want to talk about, John Green stated, “It’s not okay to ship real people and other real people.” I respect John Green in all ways, but I disagree 100% with this statement, and I want to clear up why Real Person Fiction is not actually wrong.
The first important issue to cover is that RPF is not tinhatting is not harassment. If you ship something, you like to think about it, write about it, draw it, joke about it, talk about it with your friends, and it makes you happy in your own little corner of the world. This is okay. Tinhatting is when you believe your ship is really happening in real life and the Powers That Be are hiding it from you. This is also okay, until it becomes harassment, which is when you throw your ship into the involved people’s faces repeatedly in spite of requests to stop and you say nasty stuff about their girlfriends to them and generally make everybody unhappy. This is never okay.
But that’s not what shipping is, and that’s not what RPF is. The first point I want to make here is that RPF is not actually about real people.
YAY this is a good poast!
