>>113758365>Yeah it gets really annoying having to deal with people calling you a pedo or normalizing pedophilia just for liking a dumb ship.
THIS. hey remember when fiction was fiction and people actually acknowledged that? Pepperidge farms remembers. I feel like a fucking relic from that time...>I never at all expected that Stevinel is considered the blight of the fandom. Granted, I was never invested in the SU fandom until I've watched the movie and Future so Stevinel was my first exposure to the hate of Steven x gem ships. I kind of knew they exist but I’ve always thought fandom don’t make a big deal out of it and just ignore them like any other fandoms that found certain ships or fanart to be bad/weird/disturbing.
Oh I also wasn't invested in the fandom before now but I heard horror stories. That and the fact people were now losing their minds over ships in general just kinda lead me to putting two and two together so I had an idea before I actually saw the bullshit.>For me, I don’t ship Steven with any other gems is because they’re either too old for him, too much of a family for him, or in Lapis and Peridot’s case, grew along with him so it’s weird to me, but I don’t mind them and let people ship whatever they want. Spinel was like the only gem that I never felt that way with the other gems when I ship them with Steven, weirdly enough.
I... do ship Steven with Lapis and Peridot but yeah the family thing is why I don't really go for any ships with the CGs. As for Spinel, I've heard people theorize its because
1. Steven was already older when they met
2. It's pretty easy to see her as an angsty teen
So it doesn't really have any of the connotations of the other ships.I'm a horrible cumbrain though and I'll just take any good lewd even if it's a ship I don't go for.
And that's a really cute Steven.
