    How do you feel about shipping?

    It seems like people love shipping their favorite characters together, even if it makes no gosh darn sense.  For those of you who don't know what the term "shipping" means.  It's basically where you imagine two characters from various movies/ tv shows/ etc hooking up.  For example, you could say you think Fred from scooby doo should be dating Josie from "josie and the pussycats", and then say you ship Frosie together because you think Josie and Fred make a cute couple.  Make sense? 

    Anyways, what do you think about this crap?  Is shipping a good idea?  Or what?

    So in other words, it's crossover fan fiction?

    I dunno, sounds like the work of people with way too much free time.

      lol.  I don't disagree with you.  Like ever since frozen was released, i keep seeing all these people shipping elsa with jack frost from rise of the guardians simply because they have the same powers.  I just laugh when i see stuff like that.

      The internet is a straaaaaaaange place. I recently saw a post on Reddit about "Brony's," male fans of "My Little Pony"... some of whom, apparently, write erotic "My Little Pony" fan fiction. Ugh.

    @FatFreddyCat

    Unfortunately, i had to delete my last comment in response to you because it had too many grammatical errors, but hubpages wouldn't allow me to edit it, so i deleted it thinking i could just retype it, but hubpages isn't letting me do that, so i had to do this.  lol. 

    Anyways, this is what i was going to say.

    "damn. that's rather disturbing. i don't see why people would get off on something like that, as the characters are freaking horses for pete's sakes. I mean can't they at least get turned on by a human cartoon character instead?  granted, it would still be perverted, but it wouldn't be as perverted if that makes any sense. lol

    Although to be fair, I'm sure not all bronies are like that though.  However, when it comes to most fandoms, there's always going to be those crazy ones that are either very weird, or extremely perverted."
