I'm a very understanding person when it comes to slash. Sure, there are some odd shippings out there, but I try not to judge. But there's one thing I can't stand: slashing Shakespeare characters
. Oh there's some I can stand, but most I can't. Why? Usually because the character is already dedicated to someone else. Usually if a character's already in love with another person, guess what? I don't ship them with other people!
This picture was basically what I looked like today during break when Margo told me she supported Hamlet/Laeretes. Then, to make matters worse, Aileen suggested Hamlet/Horatio. Okay, let's get one thing straight
(haha) here: Hamlet loved
Ophelia! Shall I quote some text for you? "I loved Ophelia: forty thousand brothers/Could not, with all their quantity of love/Make up my sum." So, I'm sorry, but I don't support Hamlet shipped with anyone else who isn't Ophelia. And besides, Laeretes doesn't love Hamlet. He has an Oedipus complex for his sister. Duh. And I'm biased against Hamlet/Horatio because their friendship is so strong and so pure and nothing can break that. Honestly? The only Hamlet
slash I can stand is Rosencrantz/Guildenstern.
