characters are 2 dimensional fake beings with illusions of personality. They're illustrations, and I can create illustrations involving any characters I want that I want to see together. Playing god is a weird way to put it, but having this power is sort of like that with fictional characters. I could draw Garfield having sex with Spongebob because I have the power to make them do that through illustration. Everybody has the power to do that, and we take advantage of that through shipping.
