Sorry if the Daniel/Vala pics bug anyone... sadly I had to include them here to make my point. The words on the wp were taken from a drabble-ish thing I wrote this past summer when I was down about the lack of Sam and Daniel interaction.
Now I am hearing from people who were at the con that MS pretty much dissed every pairing, and I guess these people would know better than I would since they were there, but I still got the impression that he liked Daniel/Vala. Anyone reading this who was there and wants to correct me, please do.
So since I'm still under that impression, I'm posting this wallpaper. And I still don't like the way he said "Ew." Someone said to me "you don't see the Jack/Daniel fans crying their eyes out because he disses their ship." Uh huh, well from all I've seen, he didn't diss it seriously. He would tease about it. The impression I got from this past weekend was that he wasn't teasing about S/D and was expressing outright disgust. That is different.
On the up side, one or two D/V shippers were nice to me and actually respected my pairing, so I give them props for that. Even if I don't support certain pairings, I respect the people who do and I appreciate other people who do the same for me.
If he was saying that he didn't like ANY Daniel pairings, then I'm okay with that. I just don't want to see him favoring one pairing above the other - and yes I know he is entitled to his opinions but I think it pits different shippers against each other and that isn't a good thing.
I feel bad about this because I don't want to hate him or lose respect for him. I just hope that I took what he said out of context or it wasn't as bad as it first sounded to me. It would be nice to know if he is noromo and wants to have the fans interpret things as they wish. But I'm still not sure that's the case...
And now I'm rambling and probably annoying you all so I'll shut up now. I'm still feeling the effects from my lousy weekend. Hopefully with my shortened work week and Thanksgiving coming up I'll feel better.
