Honestly, I’m trying to avoid a lot of crap on Tumblr right now, but I’m trying to wrap my brain around anyone—much less a bunch of adults—freaking out because a female character is showing up on a television show.
Look: no one is taking away your fanfic. Canon has never matched fanfic. It never will. The two are separate entities. YOUR OTP WILL NEVER BE CANON. That’s why we read and write fanfic.
If you are freaking out and hating on a character that we haven’t even met yet because ‘OMG MY OTP’, you need to take a deep breath and remember this is just a tv show, and you still have thousands of fanfics with your OTP in them, compared to 4 and a half hours of television.
(And as a personal request: if you have to hate on a female love interest, tag it, so I can block the tag.)
if you hate mary morstan / amanda abbington now is the time to inbox me abuse/hate so i can block you
