IN DEFENSE OF PADLOCK

Ship: Padlock (Tony x Paige (Notepad))

Fandom: Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared

Reason for being hated:

 They haven’t met so it doesn’t make sense:  Yeah, neither have Jack Frost, Rapunzel, Meridia, or Hiccup. Same for Sherlock, the Doctor, and the Winchester Brothers. Just because something is a crossover does not mean it’s automatically awful. Besides, at the beginning of DHMIS2, you can see Paige (the notebook DOES have a fan name) chilling out on one of the bookshelves.  She also shows up

Ew cishet relationship: Um, quick note, they are a clock and a notepad. Clocks and Notepads don’t have genders. Neither do puppets. They also do not have sexes. Their voices and behavioral patterns may allude to a gender and sex, but they do not actually possess either. The fanart that resparked the DHMIS fandom is not canon, and there are plenty of pieces that offer alternate gender and sexual representation interpretations. You’re free to headcanon them as whatever, because they are fictional characters whom have not been assigned a place on the gender spectrum.

 Abusive:  Once again, that is a fan interpretation. In DHMIS itself, they have not actually shown any sign of being in an abusive relationship. In fanon, they can do whatever the creator wants. However, as fanon is not canon, it is not actually official. The minute it does will be a different story.

Defense for Padlock

Defense by: http://theaqua-violet.tumblr.com/

As much as DHMIS freaks me out, I actually really like this pairing. So yeah, I’m going to defend it.

they haven’t met so it doesn’t make sense

Just because two characters haven’t met doesn’t mean they don’t have the potential to be a good/interesting couple. And one of the nice things about ships with characters who haven’t met is that it gives you a lot of flexibility when it comes to imagining their relationship, drawing fan art, writing fanfictions, etc. Plus, they could meet in future videos.

ew cishet relationship

I think it’s outrageous how some people legitimately hate all cishet people and believe them to be “evil”. Just as it’s alright for people to like the same gender and identify as the opposite gender, it’s alright for people to like the opposite gender and identify as their biological gender as well. And that applies to characters and shipping too.

abusive

Well, how can be abusive towards each other if they haven’t met? And if you’re talking about the separate characters, they’re MEANT to be portrayed as violent and messed up.

Pairing: Polarshipping (Jounouchi Katsuya/Joey Wheeler x Mai Kujaku/Mai Valentine)

Fandom/Series: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Reasons why they’re hated: Mai is too old for Joey, their personalities are too opposite, Mai can’t be taken seriously because she loses so many duels, Joey’s attraction to her is just hormonal teenage lust based on her having big breasts, gets in the way of other ships, people treat it as canon even though it isn’t.

Pairing: Peachshipping (Yugi Mutou x Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner)

Fandom/Series: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Reasons why they’re hated: Interferes with Revolutionshipping and other ships, it’s too predictable to pair the hero with the female lead, ignores Anzu’s feelings for Yami/Atem, dislike of Anzu or Yugi. The mangaka has said that Yugi and Anzu would get married in future, which annoyed some fans who think the characters’ fates should be left open to interpretation.

In defense of Pheonix/Maya

Sooooo I just found this blog and loved it! I was planning to just lurk, but as soon as I found that I could defend this pairing, I knew I had to jump on it!

They’re “just friends”

Right, because noooooo romantic relationship has ever blossomed from a friendship, riiiiight?

Maya is considered “too immature” for Phoenix

Oh, come on, Maya has her lovably silly moments, but she has a concept of when to be fun and when to act like the adult she is. Besides, Phoenix isn’t exactly the most mature person around.

the pairing cockblocks Phoenix/Iris and Phoenix/Edgeworth

Moving on.

Pearl pushes Phoenix and Maya together often

I don’t know why this is a problem? Pearl is just a shipper-on-deck, and kinda gave the impression that the writers were too. You know, before the pairing didn’t become canon. But whatever. I don’t know why this joke negates P/M.

Pairing: Sid Bamick/Joe Gibken
Series/Fandom: Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger
Why They’re Hated: Exaggerates what we see of their canon interaction, in the way of other Joe-ships since Joe remains hung up on Sid although Sid’s dead, “why does their relationship have to be sexual?”
