If romance happens, fine, but I'm not going to base my enjoyment of the show on whether two (fictional) characters get together and make out like bunnies. That seems rather childish and petty.

Okay, where have you been all my life? LOL! I agree, it makes life much less complicated, and much more easy going, at least where Smallville is concerned. I will say that some of my shipping has been really satisfying, in cases where the writers of the show were talented, and where they shipped the same couple I did. Then the relationship wasn't a gimmick to be pulled out and flaunted when ratings needed a boost, it was an integral part of the story being told. The best example of this I can think of is John Crichton and Aeryn Sun on Farscape. I can't say I'll never ship again, but I certainly hope I'm smarter about it now, and that I can keep it in its proper perspective.

Thanks so much for reading, and commenting. There's a lot of wisdom in what you say.
