I swear… there are the ships that you ship with every fiber of your being. Where the average fic thrills you, the really incredible ones get your pulse racing, and the horrible ones get your blood boiling.
And then there are the ship where you’re not so hard on it but you enjoy them when you happen to find a good fic.
There are the NOTPs that make you sick or super pissed just thinking about them.
Then… then there are the ships that you do not like. They are awkward, you don’t see it ever happening, it might even be a big turn off for you, or something that makes you twitch. You just do not like that ship.. But- and there is always a but, there seems to always be that one single writer who just writes that ship in such a perfect way. You read a fic from them one day even though it’s a ship you dislike, only because you seem to really like the rest of that writer’s work and the brief summary took your interest. Then you are hooked. You may not ship those two characters, but the way this author ships them, writes their personalities, just makes them click. You find that even though you never thought in a million years that you would willing read this ship you will ALWAYS read it when this certain author writes this. Sometimes over time you manage to find other stories by other authors with the same characterization, and one day, before you know it, you’ve some how fallen for the pairing, but this of course is rare and not the norm.
Keep up the good work!
