HYD:  Guh

Writer's Block: Love is timeless

What is your opinion of relationships where there is a significant age difference between partners?

Hmm. Let me think of some of my ships.

Han Solo/Leia Organa
Charlie Weasley/Gabrielle Delacour

Well. It does seem to be that I'm all in favor of it, doesn't it? literarylemming and i share many of these ships, and we tend to refer to them as our "Lolita ships."

In real life, though, I tend to...well..not frown on them, as I really don't care, but significant age differences with one partner being VERY young (like, 18 or 19) very much raise my eyebrows and wonder about it. In fandom, obviously, with fiction i KNOW why they're together and don't need to wonder or speculate.

Im afraid Im not quite getting the current kerfluffle on lj. So..if you want to, and dont have the obvious OMG PERSONAL LIFE AND FANDOM LIVES ARE SEPARATE OMG going on, then you can cross post your own crap to facebook and twitter.

...err...big deal?

I feel like I must be missing things. I read the news announcement, and it doesnt sound like you can post other people's crap, although you can post your comments.

Well, again, im not seeing the big deal.

what am i missing?
