So, I started thinking of this in relation to VM and how so many Logan/Veronica shippers are ready to jump ship, are furious with what has happened to the show, dog it left and right (and I'm surely one of them), but how some non-shippers are fine with it and don't quite get where we're coming from. And I thought, you know, wow! really shipping a couple on a show really, REALLY changes your opinion of that show. You tend to look more closely at plotlines, at interaction, at how things are going or not going for your couple and shippers tend to analyze the hell out of the show -- not just their couple, but the show as a whole. I don't know why, maybe because most people who ship a couple, like the show and therefore when they find themselves analyzing one aspect, they wind up analyzing the whole thing.
What this all means, I dunno, I just thought it was interesting.
