I got a few, so I guess I suck at this ONE True Pairing" thing.

Dick x Wally (Detective Comics)
Red x Green (Pocket Monster)
Luffy x Zoro (One Piece)
Watanuki x Doumeki (xxxHolic)
Gintoki x Hijikata (Gintama)
Dave x Karkat (Homestuck)

But I guess if I had to choose just one, this one would me my OTP.

Now, you see, the thing is, anon, that Johnlock [b]will[/b] become canon. There is no other logical conclusion to the show.

I highly suggest looking into a thing called TJLC ("The Johnlock Conspiracy"), and especially the YouTube channel "Rebekah TJLC Explained".

Either way, we won't have to wait long, since John and Sherlock are due to kiss this coming series. Mark my words!

I'm not putting TJLC off my radar, anon, honestly it's partially why I'm still invested in this show (aside from Moffat's gorgeous cinematography). It's just with each oncoming season I get more and more disheartened when Moffat keeps it just out of our reach.

Here's a tip: when you enter a new community, lurk for a while before you post so that you don't embarrass yourself by looking like somebody who has no idea what the community is like.
Here's another tip: don't think so highly of yourself, because I can guarantee you that RPF ships are worse than, yes, even Hetalia. "TJLC" is also cringey to a legendary level, so if you want to be taken seriously, at least keep that shit contained to its own community.

Thanks for the clarification! Okay so for now what I'm understanding from what you two posted is that because the general communities of my two OTPs is absolute shit, trashy, and utter tumblr fangirl/fanboy chaos (which I HAVE lurked around to see) that I'm the same way.
Honestly, I don't really much care for the trashy communities in both my OTPs, I generally steer clear of those extremist fans and acting like them. Rather, I prefer to look for *quality* fanart and fanfiction of my OTPs, which ARE supported and encouraged by the originators themselves, and try to refrain from sounding like those crazy "cringey tumblr fangirls".
If I did manage to somehow sound like those "pretentious cringey tumblr fangirls" please let me know along with examples so that I can avoid sounding like that in the future. Thanks, and I'm sorry if this post also sounds as cringey as the last one (somehow I've noticed a correlation that the longer the post is, the cringier it becomes. If that's so I guess these boards just aren't for me to comment on).

I'm not that anon, but there's some fun to be had in shipping and looking for fanworks of a pairing between characters who have great chemistry even if a romance isn't canon. I mean, where would /cm/ be without that?

Fanworks kind of exist based mostly on what will never be canon, that's the fun of it for most people. If there's a chance it'll actually happen then the excitement of it is kinda lost.

Personally, I love johnlock, but no fucking way do I want to actually see it happen in the show. It would just be an orgy of cringe for me.

I'm a fujoshi, and I'd honestly rather see actual gay characters over shallow shounen fujobaiting, but people have been shipping non-canon pairings for a huge stretch of history. There are plenty of legendary non-canon ships, both BL/slash and otherwise. It just comes down to what chemistry a fan perceives.
But yeah, I don't like shallow fujobaiting, pandering for the sake of a taste of tacky homoeroticism.
>>
>>3054456
No offense but fuck your shit man. Fujos like you are the reason why all anime homo is doomed forever.

>>3054493
Agreed. I've never understood that--"the excitement will be lost?" Do most fujoshi just garner great pleasure from delusion? When you see a pair of characters who have great chemistry, don't you want the story to acknowledge that?
>>
>>3054445
There's nothing inherently wrong with RPF, they're just 'characters' in the end and as long as creepy fans don't directly involve the people they write about by harassing them etc, it's not a big deal.

The real crime is shipping hideous old men like Johnlock. Jesus fucking christ, I'd rather gouge my eyes out than see them together or alone in any sort of sexual situation.

I like so many megaten pairings, and what sucks is that some of them are semi-canon or make perfect sense one way or another, but they'll never be confirmed or an option in-game. Especially this one, since the girls were annoying in this game, and they didn't bother adding Yosuke's romance option in the remake while adding a shit ton of fanservice in the spinoffs. Fuck.

>>3053544
I'll still consider it canon, no matter what.

>>3054559
What's wrong with it is giving a single shit about terrible youtube celebrities in the first place. Shipping them just makes it worse.
>>
>>3054559
Anon that started this whole shit show here again and thank you so much for putting RPF into all the words I couldn't. >>3054432
I guess the reason I like to ship these non-con pairings so much is because it adds a layer of pain to the pairing making their struggle for love more "real" to me and more meaningful than say, the cannon pairing. Idk, it's just more exciting imo

>>3054560
Markiplier himself said that he actually encourages people to draw fanart and write fanfiction of him because he finds it incredibly creative and humbling that people would draw/write about him, even if it's with Jack.

As for Johnlock, again I've been out of that OTP for such a long while now so I can't really say if I'd want them together on the show or not... I definitely enjoy the fanworks that people come up with them, though.

Also sorry y'all for starting this shitstorm in this board, I honestly never imagined this conflict becoming so widespread >-<

Also is it extremely rare for people to ship RPF? Because I've seen a couple thousand people ship septiplier alone...

I thought it was more because a bunch of yaoi is basically shojo manga but with guys, so they want to have suspense and tension about if the main guys will really end up together or not. Which is close enough, actually. Personally I ship pairings from mainstream stuff where there is almost no way they'll be canon, but I don't see the appeal of anime aimed at fujoshi where it's just cute guys doing cute things with a lot of tension but it's 100% sure there will be no official couples. It's not fun and full of tension, it's frustrating, like "what's the point of half of the scenes if they'll lead to nothing" kind of frustrating.
>>
>>3054496
Considering that fujobait turning canon NEVER EVER HAPPENS this whole conversation is more theoretical than anything. There's this whole thing what Boeibu's director said, how fujos need room for imagination, and I believe it's possible to strike a good ballance where a canon pairing can still be "exciting". I believe it all depends on the execution, but again, this is pure speculation as homobait becoming actual homo NEVER HAPPENS. Although
>Do most fujoshi just garner great pleasure from delusion?
I can't believe that, that's got to be bullshit. At least based on how the fujos I know on twitter act. How they latch onto any snippet, any hint validating their ship. Maybe they're a lot like me? I don't really care for romance in my shows, I prefer subtle hints over a couple being dusgustingly lovey-dovey. Well, maybe with an exception for some vague defining scene. But if I got that okay from the staff, a confirmation in an interview or something, that'd make my year. But even that rarely ever happens.
>>
>>3055235
The popular perception that fujoshi don't want canon gay still doesn't make sense to me. Especially because
>How they latch onto any snippet, any hint validating their ship.
I mean, this is what I see most frequently as well. So they clearly want the ship to be canon. Then why would it "ruin the excitement"? That's what I don't get.
I'm assuming that for sports series or other shounen with an ensemble male cast, it's to keep shippers of a pairing that would "lose" from dropping the series. But why would fujoshi not want more canon gay in general?
I'm speaking as a fujoshi myself, of course, I just tend to divorce myself from the community at large, or whatever counts as one.

I think >>3054701 is right about Japanese fangirls, and they are the ones who define what we see in anime/manga.
Also, fangirls are always portrayed as delusional because "gay men don't even exist".
And because we are just a fantasy, that's why BL works tend to be so unrealistic and boring.
>>
>>3055404
>I think >>3054701 is right about Japanese fangirls
I've been seeing it in the west ever since I first got into BL when I was young, too, of course. Lots of "omg I'm going to hell for shipping this XD" and so on.
It's too retarded, though.

>>3054679
Serious answers and sorry for taking a while to reply: I guess I'm "new"-ish to 4chan. I used to hang around on /cm/ and /y/ constantly when I WAS a true weaboo fangirl 5-7 years ago, and because of my friends' recommendations. But then eventually somehow I stopped hanging around here for a couple years (probably because I forgot about it) until 6 months ago when my anime club mentioned 4chan, and I thought it would be nice to check up on the communities circulating on 4chan and maybe even experience some nostalgia for it. And, well, aside from a month's hiatus I've been here ever since... So I guess I'm sort of new to this new 4chan community, yet I'm also a veteran??? I dunno, my relation to 4chan is very weird...
>>
>>3055432
I really suggest lurking for a while and learning about how people here prefer to communicate. If you don't acclimate, you're going to be ostracized by most.
I mean, /cm/ is overrun with cringe already, but it's nice to have at least a little quality control.

>>3055242
>But why would fujoshi not want more canon gay in general?
They do, but they rarely ever get anything of any quality. Dokyusei sold like hotcakes and the little gay boy from IBO ranks very high in popularity polls despite being a background character. Gay itself is not the issue, it's the fact tha BL is seen as niche and anime studios don't want to risk their money. Thus most of what's released are low budget, low quality turds. Fujos can see this so they tend to flock around higher quality shows which offer something more. I think they're so used to not getting anything they don't expect to get anything, they just adapt. Sports series in particular, no fujo expects a series catering to teenage boys will go canon homo. Fujoshi are not otaku, they're not violent or loud enough to get what they want. I always see them expressing great gratitude for any nod from the officials they can get.

As for the whole excitement thing, I can sort of see where they're coming from. It's the same as western TV teasing couple for seasons upon seasons, and once they finally hook up some people see it as the show jumping the shark. I guess the "will they or won't they" is just easier to write and keep people guessing, being interested. It's the whole "married bliss vs exciting new romance" dilemma all over again. Personally I've shipped married couples before and I love coming back to the scenes of my shipps hooking up so I don't see the issue.
I liked how it was dealt with in T&B, although I still wished for more. The guys have been acting like a blissfully married couple (and I mean it) for a long time now but they never showed them hook up, thus leaving fujos with enough free space to come up with their own scenarios and winning their prolonged interest. Though I believe most of those fujos also wish for more.

Anon who wrote the 12 yr old fujo post here
im talking about real life experience, i see people like this all the time in the anime manga communities here, not in Japan. Ive seen girls (13-17 yr olds mostly) try to make two boys kiss in a convention once and it was so creepy and cringey.
The fangirls on the internet are the same and they usually are very lesbo-phobic but they fetishize gay guys and also hate female characters just because they get in the way of their ships, they attack other fangirls starting "ship wars". In other words they are delusuional, disturbing teenagers and theyre everywhere

>they are the ones who define what we see in anime/manga.
Teenage fujos are usually poor as fuck, so they can't be defining the market when they can't afford to fund it. The sub-group which reads BL manga exclusively is defining what you see in that area. Their tastes are pretty bad, like Junjou Romantica tier, but they're the ones shaping the BL manga market and in turn what gets adapted into (shitty, low selling) anime. This is definitely not the same subset which buys the expensive BDs. Those people are in their twenties and are past the ~forbidden love~ phase. This is why Free mostly gets cheap merchandise while T&B (adult domain) gets $300 watches and purses.

Ah, you mentioned homophobic and that's the experience I had with Japanese fangirls. That's why I used your post as an example. My bad for misunderstanding.
The western fangirls I've seen making "going to hell" comments were just ashamed of reading porn in general, not because it's gay.

>>3055524
Eh, but T&B is not even a fujobait series at all.
Unless you mean ship-tease. But I'm talking about stuff that's written entirely around the idea of guys being "slashable". Stuff like Free or Binan Koukou.
Fujobait is a market in Japan as much as Moe is. Fangirls do have conventions and events for them.
There's a market for being teased. I don't... I don't get it.
>>
>>3055515
most female characters in otome are fucking annoying though
>>
>>3055551
>T&B is not even a fujobait series
Kek. On the other hand, I would say Binan is actually satire and not really fujobait. But really, most series that are called "fujobait" are just the male equivalent of "cute girls doing cute things". Moe genre can get pretty yuri too, but the main point for both is just cute slice of life with basic drama.
>>
>>3055551
I don't get a lot of stupid things teenagers do. Though if they keep doing it into their twenties then we have a problem.
>>
>>3055695
Nah, Kotetsu and Barnaby are just the ambiguously gay duo? I never got the "here's a bunch of guys for you to slash" vibe from it.
No, you see, but moe series aren't made with possible shipping in mind, because otaku couldn't care less about it. It's all about the waifus being precious cinnamon rolls.
Series for women add a lot of tension between the guys just to flat out deny it minutes later. It happens even in otome series. The guys have more chemistry among each other than with the main girl but we know they are all straight anyway. It's not just leaving a pairing unconfirmed to keep ambiguity. It's flat out denying any possibility from the get go but still playing around with the idea.
Sorry for dragging this discussion for too long. I'm just trying to understand this phenomenon.

>>
>>3055404
>I think >>3054701 is right about Japanese fangirls,
As someone who knows Japanese and follows various Japanese fujos on twitter, not really. At least not nowadays. In many aspects they're more open minded than Western BL fans, and it doesn't help that these days Western fandom is all about calling everything they don't like "problematic", calling everything "sin" and "trash", harassing people for not agreeing with them while hiding behind fake morals, and whatever the fuck else.

Also lots of modern BL works are really good, they just never get popular with English speakers.

Anyway, I don't know why /cm/ still exists anymore since the average browser here seems 12 and clearly aren't 4channers.
>>
>>3055706
Also I'd like to add that your average visible Japanese fujoshi is an adult, many well into their 30s, while here they're mostly spastic teenagers.
>>
>>3055551
>that's the experience I had with Japanese fangirls
Are you sure they weren't self-insertfags that didn't want their husbando to be gay? There's actually a pejorative term for these types in moon used by fujoshi to single them out.
>>
>>3055551
>There's a market for being teased. I don't... I don't get it.

Because big names will not put actual homo characters in their series at risk of alienating people, but people who like homo character dynamics are still a large enough demographic to pander to? It's not rocket science.

If people really appreciate a character dynamic and want to ship them, I truly do not see what the problem is or why it's hard to understand. And this is coming from someone who rarely ships non-canon shit.

We're also conveniently forgetting that lots of ship tease that goes absolutely nowhere exists for hetero shit as well.
>>
>>3055487
This.
>>
>>3055706
Eh fujoshi itself is a pejorative term, though that has more to do with how Japan view women. I mean, they aren't "rotten" because they like gay porn but because they like porn at all.
But this "problematic" talk is the reason I left 4chan a few years ago. We went from "I fap to this" to "I will analyze the shit out of this while being very angry in the process".

>>3055710
I don't know, I've been around the internet since the 90s, so I've met several "bad examples" of fangirls. I guess it's just my bad luck.
IRL, I just know the "lolsorandum" types, pretty harmless.

>>3055714
Sure, but then why not leave the shit ambiguous?
I'm talking about series that flat out deny the gay but still play around with homolust. I just don't see the point.

On what, series name or validity? The mangaka is known for doing series with LGBT themes--their latest work is straight up about a gay kid--and a different pairing in this particular series was said by the mangaka to be a valid ship. I guess people who want to interpret this relationship as brotherly or something have a chance at being right, but whatever's going on between them, they love each other.
Anyway, this page should come up in an image search, for sauce's sake.

Some of it is pretty old - the guidebooks covered the whole FE - Bison - Agnes "triangle" and the verdict was that all parties were too self-centered (or insecure in Bison's case) to ever make any of it work. The canon PSP game also provided all the main characters' perspective and showed that FE and Bison are friends out of necessity - Fire Emblem likes to have someone uncomplicated around to vent and Antonio can't really confide into anyone else.

Never before have I felt guilty for shipping two characters until these two came along. I like the other two main pairings but Sakura and Fai's dynamic melted my heart.

You do realise that a majority of male characters aren't written as homosexual to begin with? Since the fujo audience got bigger, people decided to write in more homo fanservice. It's not the other way around like you think, you don't get canon gays because fujos only like bait, you get bait because otherwise you'd get nothing.

It all depends on the writer and whether he wants to write an actual homosexual couple or even mention a couple like that. There are many works that focus on homo romance, but most writers that leave it all at fanservice wouldn't get into it.
