Hey guys regardless of what you think of them as a person, could you at least use the right pronouns for sarcasmosaur.
I didn’t realise Sarcasmosaur had elected to switch pronouns. I apologise for unintentionally misgendering them! Does anyone know if they are okay with the third-person plural or would prefer another set of pronouns?
One, she never bullied anyone.
It does you credit to stand up for your friend, anon, but sometimes being a true friend requires you to step back and objectively evaluate whether your friend is using harmful coping mechanism to deal with past trauma. In this case, Sarcasmosaur clung so desperately to the idea of Heavy/Medic as the romantic love ideal that any pairing interfering with it was seen as a threat to the happiness of Heavy and Medic and therefore to the happiness of Sarcasmosaur themselves, and any person supporting a conflicting pairing became the target of overt or covert hostility.
What animosity there was between us, however, was all on Sarcasmosaur’s part. I even wrote a Heavy/Medic gift fic for them inspired by their bittersweet Valentine’s Day drawing; it’s still listed in my Master Fic List on tumblr. Apart from that, I have never interacted directly with Sarcasmosaur, nor posted about them on my tumblr, nor sent them messages, not reblogged their art with anything but praise for their skills, and I wish them good luck in their future endeavours.
Two, for all your "this is an all-ship blog", you've tried to "disprove" Heavy x Medic a couple times and rub it in peoples' faces ("aw, Heavy didn't go to Medic's house, but Spy and Scout are together, Heavy x Medic ship sunk"). I wouldn't want to deal with that, either.
1) Fictional pairings are not scientific hypotheses and cannot be ‘proven’ or ‘disproven’, regardless of whether they’re canon or not; they’re validated only by your ability to image their relationship.
2) I believe the post you refer to is this: http://writingcyan.tumblr.com/post/59550195773/so-let-me-get-this-straight. I challenge you to find the phrase “Heavy x Medic ship sunk” anywhere in that post or in any other post on my blog; in fact, I expressed a stab of emotional pain at the lack of Valve’s usual Heavy/Medic ship-teasing. Heavy/Medic isn’t my main pairing but I do ship it, as the 140+ tagged Heavy/Medic posts and handful of fanfics on my blog attest to. I also ship Medic/Scout, Heavy/Scout, Heavy/Medic/Scout, Medic/Soldier, Medic/Sniper, Medic/Demo, Heavy/Spy, etc, etc. enthusiastically and voraciously; deal with that as you may.
I feel we have stumbled off-topic with this line of posts, however, so I would appreciate if any future comments were directed to my tumblr ask box.
Awesome! I'm unfortunately not writing anything these days, but everything I have completed and feel good about seeing the light of day is on my website at http://dotchan.com.
Since this is an exercise in reanimating the ‘chan, would you be okay with me creating a ‘Constructive Criticism’ thread and posting any comments I might have on your fics there?
