I can see Stacy's point though. Saying she disagrees with J/C's popularity, only to be met with hostile (not you guys) responses telling her she's wrong.

I can understand why you look down on J/C so much Stacy. -_- And it's not fair that your trying to voice your opinion only to be hostily met by bad stuff.

Just my $0.05

Exactly! I mean, what do they even mean "wrong"? Its so stupid; someone can like whatever they want to. There is no right and wrong with this. Just opinions. Its not like she doesn't have good, intelligent reasons for her likes/dislikes. And, even if not, its no one's business. They take it way too personally.

That's why I tend to stay away from other sites, and all. Unless of course I'm linked over by one of y'all to a site for a specific reason, like a good fic or something. Most people other places like J/C and other ships for immature or dumb reasons, I think. Whereas, the IDOJers are more sophisticated and tolerant...meaning, whether they ship cannon, or not, or both, it makes sense. Some like it JUST because its popular. And the stories are insanely OOC. Annoying.


Good 5 cents, Pedro. *little kiddy voice* You gets some candy! ^_^ *tosses a gummy bear* LOL

That happens when those fans (not you guys) takes J/C way too seriously. They become attached to it needlessly and overuse the whole "fluffyness" of J/C. That really annoys me too. They fail to understand that there's more to J/C and the other ships than just gobble gook. <_<

Yeah, I know.

I mean, I believe in taking your shiips and favorite characters SERIOUSLY. Just not PERSONALLY. Know what I mean? Its good to take them seriously, 'cause if you just like it 'cause its popular, you aren't thinking for yourself. Actually analyzing why you like two characters together and how they work, well you have to be serious to do that, not just silly and fun. That's how you understand the characters and show, and it makes you a better writer and interpreter. I see no problem with that.

What I have a problem with is people taking it so personally, and thinking that if someone has a different opinion and like/dislike that they don't like you. Difference there. Its absolutely ridiculous. Its the most cliche term to use and I know you've heard it, but people are different. You can take a pairing seriously and not so darn personally. They don't have anything to do with who you are, there's more to that person.

They fail to see that there's more to J/C and the other ships than just gobble gook.


No kidding <_< How shallow can you be?! *rollseyes*

I too have noticed the lack of J/B fanfics, and though it makes me feel partly responsible, (I haven't written any, for instinst) but I've kinda stayed away from doing this pairing, owing to the contravercy it used to be among the once-many-populated J/B fandom, but I might break out of this habit someday, now that it's become less hostile.

I mean, I even wrote a fic for Cindy/Bolbi! :rolleyes: (which I don't support in any way....just fyi) I think some people ;) deserve some J/B from me. :D

Ya know, I think the pairing I like LEAST is J/L. I mean, c'mon! It's not canon, and if it's not canon, I don't ship it. To me, any other ship other than canon just doesn't seem normal and is plain awkward! But that's just my $0.05 there... Nothing against any other non-canon shippers, ya know! ^_^ :bff:

Basically, this is a list of all fics that have "Jimmy N+Betty Q" as their main pairing.

That's my fic I wrote for Stacy's birthday :D

And yes, I am bragging about that lol.

The HSM fandom is notorious for this, and Avatar can get pretty bad too. When I was really active in the HSM forums on fanfiction.net I got tons of hate from Troyella shippers for shipping Ryella, same with all the Ryella friends I made. And some Kataangs in the Avatar fandom gave me major crap for being a Zutarian <_<

I'd like to visit those forums again, though. Hopefully people have matured since then.

C/T is the only ship I would say I really bash in any of fic. Be careful reading my Neutron Trilogy, because somewhere in book two, you'll need mind bleach to ever like the pairing again.

Let the record show that Jimmy is just as mean to Timmy in most instances as Timmy is to him.

But yeah I agree that I don't like that pairing too much. I don't hate it as a pairing, because the whole inter-dimensional romance is just so cute sometimes. I do, however, hate how Timmy basically tried to start a relationship with Cindy based on lies. That's not a good way to start out.

I pretty much cannot stand a fanfic pairing unless it is Jimmy/Cindy, Sheen/Libby, Hugh/Judy, and Carl I don't mind him being paired with other characters, but since I really like him and Elke together then... :)



I am morally against slash, so sorry to anyone who is offended by that, and I don't really read. I think I read one against my better judgment, but that is about it.

I'm making a new J/B Fic right now, and will get back into making Starlight Adventure soon (I need to start it up again, dang laziness!)

John, I also have J/B fic, "Starlight Adventure". Search for it!
