My Anti-Stydia Ship Manifesto.- Reasons why I don´t ship the banshee and the… Stiles

TV

 

3 years ago I was bored out of my mind with nothing to do, so I turned on my TV and started to channel surf, most of the series I caught a glimpse of weren´t interesting enough to catch my attention.

I was about to give up and look for something else to do when… I saw a scene where one handsome guy wearing a leather jacket pushed another cute guy against a door and threatened him; it was actually a pretty funny scene so… I decided to give the series a chance and kept watching. That´s how I got into Teen Wolf.

Luckly for me, that weekend for one or some other reason, they were doing a season 1 and 2 marathon, so I was able to catch up with the series from the very begining an then it was just a streaming issue. I actually got my brothers to watch the series with me (They love it!) and that´s how Teen Wolf became part of our TV-bonding Time.

Reasons for loving Teen Wolf I got plenty, but I think that´s a thing for another day and another post, ´cause right know I want to write about something that has been bugging me for a very long time, not only in this fandom but others as well and that, that´s “shipping”. Now I´m certainly a fangirl so… I´d be lying if I said that I don´t ship my favorite characters into relationships, ´cause I do! But sometimes shipping just grants on my nerves! In fact shipping was what ultimately ruined The Vampire Diaries  for me, between the constant Delena and Stelena all out wars in every video and review I saw or read -and that´s without metioning the Klaroline shippers- I just couldn´t stay on the fandom.

Now a days I try to ignore all the shipping things, but… it´s kind of difficult specially when some writers and show runners seem to be listening more and more to the fans -something not necessarily bad but not good either- and have started to let the fandom affect their story telling.

But since today is San Valentine´s, I decided to do something unlike me and share my views on one ship I was interested when I started Teen Wolf, that made me sad when it didn´t sail, ultimately was glad it sank and finally I´m dreding floats again -ok, I think is best if I try to stay away from the water/sailing related words- this is my very first ship manifesto or to be more accurate my anti-ship manifesto.
