Pairing names

Dear Fandom,

Yeah, it's fun making up new words. Uh huh.

STOP.

I'll admit I've made up one or two, but mostly as a joke. I don't take most pairing names seriously, because it takes away from the origin of the word 'slash'. Namely, the actual SLASH in between the names (yeah, I know it's silly, but go with me here). I understand that for fandom to grow, it must evolve, but must it be so utterly obnoxious?

And so my wish is for fandom to stop making up impossible to pronouce words - or words that just sound fucking STOOOOPID in general - in a vain attempt to be cute.

And should anyone should actually start referring to K/S, the original slash pairing, as Spirk or, God forbid, Kock, I will not be held accountable for my actions.

Sincerely,
Mynx
