This tag is half pissing me off and half making me fangirl scream.
At the moment, it’s pissing me off more. So as usual, to vent, I’m going to write a lovely post.
Let’s start off with the big ships involving our lovely Percy. Pernico and Percabeth are easily in the big relationship war even Ares would approve of. The hate going around between these two is the height of what’s pissing me off.
Some Percabeth shippers are saying things like “well, it’s not cannon so it’s not ever gonna happen!” News flash — shipping doesn’t have to be cannon! I personally approve of rachelxoctavian, and it can’t be cannon because Rachel has sworn eternal maiden ship by hosting the oracle! Another thing that seems to keep popping up — snide remarks. I’m pretty sure the one I saw [i refuse to point fingers] wasn’t intentional, but it was still harsh. Many posts from Percabethians are rude and cruel towards Pernico/Perachel. For example, saying “Oh my gods, percy and annabeth are so adorable!” Is fine. But proceeding to say “I can’t believe you would ship nico with percy.” Is not. Or “you aren’t living until you ship Percabeth!” Is not okay. These phrases aren’t intentional, obviously, but keep on your mind - if you are going to use connotations like this, keep it off Pernico’s tag. Perachel shippers seem to be the butt of Percabeth’s jokes, too. It’s always something like, “Rachel almost ruined Percabeth I can’t believe her! Perachel shippers need to be STABBED WITH PITCHFORKS!” Always. It’s rather saddening to think that Percabethians are shunning Perachel and Pernico shippers just because it’s against their own ship.
But let’s get this straight right now — Percabeth isn’t the only ship that needs to be told to sit down and stop that, Velma style. Pernico, yes: Anti-pernico’s need to stay off the dam tag. It’s supposed to support the ship, not to spread negative posts. But perniconians, keep in mind: if somebody dislikes said ship, it doesn’t mean they’re homophobic. Get that straight right now. Percabeth/Perachel shippers are told on occasion that they just don’t approve of gays. But you know what, I’m going to share a story real quick. If you follow the labels certain posts give Percabeth shippers, I’m labeled a homophobe. Me. The girl who helped two of her friends come out of the closet, confront their parents, and helped one of them get a date in one of the most judge-mental cities in Utah. So, according to a few labels I’ve seen, I’m a homophobe — Thanks guys.
Guys there’s enough Tartaurus crap going on Amazon [dunno how much Twice-Kill is liking this]. Let’s please not spread it to tumblr.
