You ever get that damned if you do damned if you don't feeling? That's how I feel right now. I'm starting to think the term for me is "hopeless het," if I understand current online terminology correctly. Now, I have a lot of friends online and IRL who like slash, and maybe even are involved in RL relationships of that variety. I didn't used to bother me. I know that there are several sites with tons of fic that "ship" the Doctor and Jack. Let's face it, Jack will go for nearly anyone! While I'm not big into it, being that I'm a girl and "het," I will occasionally read these, particularly if it's one a friend has written. I used to think of myself as open minded. Then all the Heroes slash type coms started up and people began talking about shipping Peter/Claude and even Bennet/Claude. Now, while I think it's great that folks can have coms like that to be free and express their creativity, and also have an easier time finding what interests them, I'm starting to feel a bit shut out myself. I have nothing against slashers or folks with their own concepts of an OTP. Write about / dream about whatever makes you happy. Just don't expect me to give up my dreams. I don't expect you to give up yours.
