Wow!!! Just NO!
First of all "anon" - commenting about the dynamic and inter-personal relationships within the CARYL community as an “outsider” sets you up to be very-very WRONG and makes you sound completely ridiculous (at best).
Since you said it yourself you are "looking from the outside" so pretty much any opinion or judgment when it comes to me (personally) and my friends not only flawed but also 100% invalid.
I am proud to be a member of an large, diverse group of very intelligent, sympathetic, thoughtful, positive women who I have never seen be anything even close to mean or “clique-like”.
We might be Carylers but I know that almost all of us have friends that root for a different “ship” and yet we are able to have calm, smart discussions without isolating or trying to “convert” them.
Your invitation to "switch" to your tag is insulting, manipulative, condescending and certainly doesnt make your offer sound like something I would ever even consider.
For your information CARYL is not (i emphasize not!) "dead" but even if that were true the light manner that you use to encourage me to "switch" tells me that perhaps your shipping passion is not as strong as you’d like everyone to think!
Finally - you don’t know me, you don’t know my friends and you certainly don’t know anything about the connections and bonds that a lot of us have created over here!
If your purpose was to weaken my CARYL resolve or cast doubt on my relationships around here then I am sorry to tell you this has been an EPIC Failure for you!
I am sorry if my response is harsh but what kind of reaction were you looking or expecting to get! Suggesting the "switch" and making it seem like its for my own social benefit makes the whole debacle even more maddening!
Am I suppose to thank you for pointing out the "error of my ways", run to the Bethyl tag and start blogging about Mr. Dixon’s Identity Crisis in the Wilderness?
Please stay in your tag, away from me and my friends!
I wish you all the best anyways!
P.S. For the record a message like this actually makes you and the company you keep - a group of “mean girls” (and not us!)
I’m lol-ing so hard at the idea that the rest of the Caryl-ers don’t accept and include you. I mean, just looking at the number of notes that show up on your posts will show that so isn’t true.
And to the anon, I don’t know how you can’t see that Sanja is absolutely adored by all the Caryl-ers. She’s one of the biggest cheerleaders for the ship and provides great humour and positivity. These kinds of harassing/insulting messages are just going to generate even more love and support for Sanja from the Caryl-ers so I’m not really sure what you are hoping to accomplish with this.
