A post someone made in GPD made me think about this. They said that the concept of shipping was pretty ridiculous - I mean, technically we're all trying to grasp onto the vaguest hints possible and trying to make them into something romantic. But the thing is... why? Why do we ship certain characters together? What for?
I know the reason why I ship myself - it's because my parents haven't been on the best of terms for a long while, and everywhere I look there are divorced couples, couples who have to live apart, single mothers... shipping is my imaginary compensation for that - even though they only exist in my daydreams, they're still happy, and I like seeing people happy like that, something I don't see much of in real life. But what about the others? What about you?
