I never have, truth be told. Heck, I even seriously shipped both Pearl AND Ikari during DP. I freaking love them both and fangirled for both accordingly, even if Pearl was (and still is) my OTP.

Why? Because I know it's just a kids' show, and the possibility of any characters getting together during its run is extremely low, so I just go with the flow and support what I like and ignore what I don't.
