First, love your mood icon. *pets the goat*

I wonder if part of the magnitude of the H/Hr reaction comes from the fact that it's a het ship. I mean, there hasn't been nearly the same backlash in the R/S community, has there? (I confess that I don't know for sure -- that's a ship I don't spend much time watching, let along sailing.) My thinking is that slashers are used to having canon upend our pairings (pun intended), because authors usually don't make gay relationships canonical. Het shippers, on the other hand, had at least a whiff of actual possibility, so when that's taken away, the disappointment is that much greater.

I need to think about this some more. If it goes somewhere, I might post it in my journal.

You may have a point. Slashers are necessarily resiliant.

I love the goat! I used to raise goats years ago. I miss them.
