That's also my biggest problem with shipping. I mean, I don't want to sound like a hypocrite, as I'm also a shipper, but I firmly believe in keeping the characters IN character. What's the point of shipping canon characters if they don't act like themselves? You might as well create an entirely new character that looks like the canon one, but acts the way you want them to. It's what irks me the most in a lot of the fanart I get in my dA inbox regarding CCxOC ships (to which the previous sentence applies even more). Stoic, distant characters do not become lovy dovy-mushy mushy all of a sudden. :B Enfin, that's what I think and that's what I keep in mind when I draw my fanon OTP.
