Keep you're shipping wars off my art.

Seriously, if you don't like the pairing in my drawing/fanfiction, then don't get all high and mighty about it in the artist's comment. Comment on the art itself. Is it drawn well? Is the coloring good? Is the concept decent? Are the characters in character? Is the grammar correct? Don't talk about how 'so-an-so' would never be with 'whats-their-face'. That's not important.

What do you think I do? I fucking ignore something I don't like. At least I bother to make the characters act like themselves in the pairings I like.

TL;DR: The Homestuck fandom. That is all.

The overzealous shippers are probably part of the reason why some people are driven away from Homestuck and other similar fandoms. Like, for instance, Hetalia.

Oh shipping wars. I remember simply saying I liked Sonsally more than Sonamy back when I was a Sonic fan. The Sonamy shippers went apeshit. :lol:

It's easy! Just find a fandom that's so unpopular, you're the only one on dA who likes it!

(I think I've found one, but I have to watch the rest of it, so I can make highly confusing drawings about it. )

Other than that, yeah, fans can get crazy, especially here. Fanartists must be cautious.

Draw Sally with Sonic and state that you like them as a couple.

Then await as the angry angry Sonic fans shred you to pieces :la:

Doesn't make it a fandom, though. A fandom is the community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc. Fanfiction writers, artists, poets, and cosplayers are all members of that fandom and most people in a fandom participate in forums, on facebook pages, livejournal and tumblr communities, and conventions.

Drawing Hitler in a thong isn't fandom and never was. Unless I'm participating in a community where all we do is draw Hitler in a thong, write stories and poems about it, and even cosplay as it and communicate with eachother through a forum or blog and chatter endlessly about it- then no, I ain't part of any fandom. ;P

:stare: There are people in the Sonic fandom who would probably fight to the death over whether or not Sally is right for Sonic. Because cartoon animals are serious fucking business. And it's not just 12-13 year olds who do this, there are grown men who obsess over this. :O

You should see the shipping in the freaking South Park fandom, because third and fourth-grade boys are all totally in love with each other and have hot gay sex, right?! :roll:
