protomickey said:The biggest pairing I support is the Mickey/Apathy pairing. I watch Kim Possible to laugh, so I could not care less who is dating who. The same is true for fan fiction. I prefer stories that are done in the spirit of the show and focus on plot and humor. Stories that are basically about getting two people together really do not interest me, whether they are Kim and Ron, Kim and Shego, or flashback about how James met Anne. I do not mind as long as pairings are secondary, or even further down the priority list.
KiGo is my second least favorite of the popular pairings. Kim and Shego are quite opposite in many ways, most of them obvious. Putting them together is like connecting a set of jumper cables to your car battery and then touching other red and black ends. I feel the same way about DraKim, but that one gets the title of my least favorite because it has the added bonus of Drakken being 25+ years older than Kim.
Well, I am more of a DrakKim Shipper, myself. And this does seem to be more frowned upon more so than even KiGo. Age Difference seems to be more unexceptable more so than Same Sex Coupling.
But some would say that it's not only the age difference that's the problem, but it's that one of them is concidered underaged (under 18) during most of the episodes, which is more of the problem. So, I can understand where they are coming from.
But with all that said, I'm not going to go All William Wallace on someone who ships different, than I do, as long as they don't go All William Wallace on the way I ship. Ship and Let Ship, I always say.
Please and Thank You,
