Thank You, Flist!  
I want to thank you for being so awesome. The support jessm78 received yesterday is a testament of why I love fandom. No matter who you ship or don't ship, it's great to see people come together like that :)

For those that didn't catch this in my comments from jessm78:

Thank you, hon - I am overwhelmed by the support from other shippers over this stupid flame I got. It is great to know (and to be reminded, I guess) that respectful shippers of other pairings (esp. S/J) do exist. I was just cranky from the long day today and that flame didn't help me too much, so I really appreciate this. :)

And any of you guys who commented on my LJ - *smushy hugs and kisses to you all* :)

Thanks again!

I guess I missed your earlier post on this, but I sent a reply to jessm78 just now. I think that kind of behavior is completely uncivilized and I never understood the mentality of reading someone's fanfic, purely because you don't like their pairing. I just wanted to add my support to the mix.

Hey, we've all been flamed, and sometimes it stings. A little reminder that most people in fandom are sane, or at least only nuts in the good way, never hurts.

I got flamed for my long Daniel/Vala piece a while back, and it stung for a moment, until I tracked back to the feedbacker's profile and discovered that they'd written over 100 John/Aeryn fics, had started watching SG-1 only with season 9, and hated Daniel for "being an unnecessary character." WTF? In my experience, the best way to keep negative feedback from bothering you is to consider the source.

Hmmm, I have an idea . . .

I'm replying to myself because I sort of executed that idea I had. There's a feedback meme on my journal. It improved my mood somewhat, hopefully others will enjoy doing it as well.

I just realized that your friend's flamer is the same one who hit me a while back for a Five Things I wrote that included Sam/Daniel in it. Bwhaha.

This is the best possible outcome, all of us banding together against the intolerant flamers. :)

*is happy*
So maybe there's hope for fandom after all?
