This is a requested journal...
This was the day I saw something ridiculous about it and I need to say it mainly because of what one of my closest friends has experimented when she drew one of her favourite characters paired up with an OC
How has it happened?
My friend wanted to show a fan pairing to another user
The user treated her in a terrible way because she paired her OC with her favourite cartoon character (as in a cartoon crush)
She wanted to show her picture to another user
The user 1 pops up and insults my friend for apparently no reason
My friend tells me what happened
I found out that certain user 1 hates to see other OCs paired up with her cartoon crush and took my friend's words out of context using her "real-life problems" as excuse when who knows, they're not even real or have a very low chance to be
(Well, sometimes I put my foot in due to IRL stuff, like my current stress and physical pain I've been having recently but it's not a permanent excuse foe everything *not even the tons of problems I have on Facebook!". We all must learn to separate things, I know it's not easy, even I find it hard but It's NOT a reason for this but that's not the point)
My friend has told me there isn't even a very strong bond between the characters she has drawn
The point is...
Is it right to hate another person just because of pairing one of his/her OCs with you cartoon crush or "breaking" your OTP?
NO, it's NOT right!
Personally long ago I've paired Strider Hiryu with Ibuki from Street Fighter and I found pics of both of them paired with other characters (even OCs!) and I liked almost all of them (my fave of the other pairs other I've seen users made for Strider Hiryu is *punkbot08's Tora x Hiryu!)
I understand some pairings can work and some can't but... hating a person for just a... pairing or a cartoon friendship? Sincerelly... pathetic!
Heck! I even know some other people with cartoon crushes who even like other alternate couples with other characters! (like my friend ~angelthewingedcat
, her cartoon crush is Sly Cooper the raccoon but she also likes Sly X Carmelita
We all can write stories with cartoon crushes that work for us.. but getting mad at someone else for having a cartoon crush on the same character or making an alternate pairing with the same characters!? They're just cartoons!
I'd have to say, this is one of the most childish things I've even seen... that's one of the most pathetic DAramas I've ever presenced... (I had one last week but I'll try to improve myself to avoid childish DAramas like the one I've initiated and this one...)
