Not sure if anyone remembers, but just over a year ago I got into this argument with this guy on ff.net who'd written an SG-1 fic. It was Cam/Vala and he snuck a S/J wedding into it, even though he only said the story was C/V. I brought it up in my review and said I wished he would have mentioned S/J as one of the pairings. He got into a huge argument with me about Sam/Daniel being brother and sister, and that 1) S/J is CANON; and 2) S/J "IS the show." And he gave me thousands of examples showing how Sam and Jack love each other from all the episodes. We exchanged a couple of emails and he said we'll just agree to disagree and then dropped it.
I thought it was over, but every so often if he noticed me reviewing another Cam/Vala story, he'd review it as well and bring up S/D even if the story had nothing to do with it. Comments like "Sam and Daniel are brother and sister and I don't know why some disturbed, misguided souls see it as more than that." I think the guy has a HUGE chip on his shoulder.
Well right now I just got a notification that he'd left me a review for one of my fics. I wrote a C/V drabble called The Red Silk Nightie. Here was his review:
"short, but good. Please, NO Sam/Daniel! When the hell did SD (shudder) become
a sinonym for CamVala?"
1. Yes it's short because it's a drabble. A drabble is exactly 100 words long.
2. Um... *scans fic for the 100th time* Sam/Daniel? Was there any S/D in this piece? I sure as heck didn't see any.
3. Yes, you've told me countless times now of your discomfort with Sam/Daniel. I GET IT.
4. S/D is a synonym (nice spelling, BTW) for C/V? Really? That's news to me. How many stories do you see on ff.net that are S/D & C/V?
Now please haul your ass somewhere else and leave me alone.
I am seriously, SERIOUSLY, sick and tired of people like this moron with their never-ending quests to convert people to their ship that they see as the right one. This guy has such a huge chip on his shoulder he's lopsided. I guess he didn't learn from his little exchange with me last time.
I replied to him and said there was no hint of Sam/Daniel in the drabble. I didn't even mention the characters (except that Vala had gone on a shopping trip with Sam - but there was no mention of Daniel whatsoever). I said I know he hates S/D and he doesn't have to mention it all the time. I wish he'd keep it out when my story had nothing to do with it. I said he's got a huge chip on his shoulder and I wish he could just let it go and we could agree to disagree.
Whatever happened to just not reading something if you didn't like it? I know some very pleasant, respectful S/J shippers (many of them right here on LJ) but this jerk gives shipping as a whole a bad name.
I really am thinking of not posting my Stargate stories on ff.net anymore. I'm tired of the harassment.
