CHAT ANONYMOUSLY ABOUT STUFF: General Anon Meme


It is what all the cool memes are doing nowadays!

The only rule is, don't be a total passive-aggressive douche. This isn't the place to spew all your vitriolic unrequited blackrom feelings for other members of of our dear fandom--or if you can't resist, at least don't mention them by name, that shit is just a little too petty. If it gets out of hand I'll ban you so fast Karkat would be impressed.

Other than that, hop to it, anons. And TITLE YOUR THREADS it could get pretty confusing all up in here if you didn't!



PS, as one kind anon pointed out, if you want to see the comments in chronological order instead of thread format, put ?view=flat after html in the URL. Or click here, whatever.

Well, here's the thing: We know BQ/Jack are rivals and hate each other. But does that mean they want to bang each other at the same time?

I remember back when we first saw [S]Jack:Ascend, a lot of people thought that they were the same BQ/Jack as Slick and Snowman, but it did disturb me a lot that some people still shipped them(both Jack/BQ and Slick/Snowman even though they are different characters but not many people thought so at the time) even though one of them murdered the other. This was back before the concept of kismestude even entered Andrew's head.

No, but the fact we also know they're kismesises, which means they're more than just rivals who hate each other, does.

They're not really different characters. The Jack who becomes Jackspers and the Jack who becomes Slick start off as the same person, they only diverge based on what the players do. BQ and Jack's relationship is likely a constant part of the starting conditions of the game.

Why is it wrong to ship them after Jack murdered BQ and yet it was okay back when Snowman mutilated Slick and locked him in the vault to bleed to death?

People ship enemies all the time, including enemies that have done horrible things to each other. It's common.

Yeah I know it's called Foe Yay, but maybe I'm just reading too many undertones beneath this that suggest something more sinister beneath it that we aren't consciously aware of but permeates a dark part of our own society.

Besides, this whole kismestude thing almost seems like some kind of joke in on itself. I know it's alien romance, but it's alien romance written by a human in a satirical manner.

Have you read the average romance novel? The whole bodice-ripper genre has a much better claim to having sinister...well, I wouldn't even call it undertones, it's not that subtle.

Fandom shipping is pretty reasonable in comparison.
