So, I decided to make this little intro post here, so people can know what this community is all about, without flooding the user-info.Let me stress, that this community is for shippers and friendship fans a like.
I am a true and strong believed that we should all be under the same roof, whether you ship them romantically or do not... without such a strong and beautiful friendship, there would be no shipping, so we all need to be somewhere to appreciate that underlying core friendship and love that touches a lot of Smallville
To seperate us into categories of "shippers" and "non-shippers" is ridiculous, and divides a fandom, and honestly brings un-needed attention to their love (whether you see it as romantic or not), and makes it almost impossible for people to just appreciate such a strong core between the two characters - and that is what this community is about, appreciating that strong core, that strong friendship.
Now, I have noticed while my mods have been pimping this community that people have been saying, "Well, it looks like he (syxstring
) is a chlark (romantic) fan."
Well, I am. I'm not going to deny that concept. If you want to know my thoughts, here they are: I am not for putting them together on the show, as a couple, I think the best we got was in Tempest
and I think it should stay that way. I guess you could call me an "enthusiastic" chlark shipper. Their little moments, excite me, and I find them adorable but I think if the show ever actually put them together romantically it wouldn't work, which is why I just kind of ship them in my head, and get excited about the little things.
But I can't stress enough that my hopes for this community are not for the romantic, the hopes for this community, from me and from my other mods, is that we can all just appreciate that strong core, and that strong bond that these two characters hold.. whether you ship, or just love their friendship - these two characters have such a dynamic together, it should just be appreciated in full, not separated into categories of "shipping" and "non-shipping"
That is our hope here.
If you have any questions about the community, about me, about any of the other mods ( the two lovely crippled
) feel free to respond to this post. We will take your questions here or at your FAQ post
