I don't tend to do the shipping business very seriously anyway.

Me neither, especially since all my ships sink.

I've always been a believer in that. Which is why it was awkward for me in the TVD fandom

What made it so awkward?

I think with the fandom letting Marvel know that they didn't like this relationship very much, they may just drop it.

The TVD fandom is very shippy.

Well, speaking from someone who used to watch TVD, TVD was built on ships. The main concept of the show was two vampire brothers and their relationship with a human girl. And the rest of the show was very much heavily about the characters' romantic entanglements.

With something like the MCU, there are endless ship possibilities because it's a connected universe, some canon, tons more non-canon, but the MCU itself isn't built solely on romance. In fact, some of the most important relationships in the MCU are family/friendship/bromance based. You get a little bit of everything with the MCU, romance is only a piece of the whole.

I see tons of ships in the MCU fandom, but because it's just such a vast, expansive universe, there are so many pieces, I think that's reflected in the fandom.

I see the Russos/writers touching upon it very briefly to move past it, and that's it. I'm just glad I haven't been accused anywhere of only disliking it because I ship Nat/insert someone else. I have preferences but I'm also pretty open with shipping - it was the writing and character choices I took issue with.

Sometimes the fandom on Tumblr makes me want to strangle them. You would think the only reason to watch these movies is for the shipping and they are, unfortunately, one of the most vocal parts of the fandom.

some people can't watch a movie/show without shipping someone with someone. Must be how their brain works based on the biological imperative to couple couple couple!

I understanding shipping on shows like TB and stuff but not when its a comic franchise, i feel like the romance is just a added element, its never a major part

Which is one of the reasons Bruce/Nat fell flat.

It was a strange choice but I guess Steve's heart was really taken? Clint would've been too obvious and then who else?
