i self ship for a lot of reasons - to cope (the main reason tbh), because i like expanding the possibilities of my favorite universes by creating self inserts for them, because i just have a lot of love in my heart, because IT'S FUN!!

self shipping has helped my confidence a LOT, and helps me cope with a lot of things that would make society consider me "unlovable" (psychosis, physical disability, et cetera). ever since i joined the self ship community, i've had a lot more self-esteem, and it's REALLY helped my creativity too; i first got into digital art because i fell in love with a fictional character, haha!!

plus, i just really love creating!!

my main f/o of ALL TIME!!!!! Is the Negative Spirit from doom patrol tv (only the show!!)

i've been self shipping with them (i use xe/they for the negative spirit exclusively) since before i even knew what self shipping & the community really WAS!! specifically, i've been self-shipping with them since 2019 - for 4 years as of the time i'm writing this!! isn't that so cool???

i fell in love with them on my FIRST WATCH of doom patrol. on my very first watch-through in 2019, i started watching shortly after the release of hair patrol, and was caught up by the next episode. i fell in love with them instantly, and as i watched their relationship with larry soften, and saw how happy it made them, i just kept falling for them... i have so many old messages to my friends talking about how deeply i adored them. they've been such a huge part of my life for such a long time and i wish i could hold them and hug them forever and ever and ever....

i have several other main fos, namely dureena nafeel from crusade, anna sheridan from babylon 5, and kosh from babylon 5!>
