WTF???

Just read where Amanda Abbington, who is Martin Freeman's real-life wife I believe, got death threats for her portrayal of Mary Morstan. Sheesh, people. Insane fans are not good for fandom. They are especially not good for actors. I personally think the death threats over COE were what kind of derailed GDL's career. Who wants to hire someone whose fans are cleary crazy and possibly dangerous? Get a grip, people. Seriously. It's a tv show. I still hate that Ianto died, don't expect to ever get over it, but on the other hand, I do recognize that Ianto Jones is not a real person. The same with John and Sherlock. As much as I love them, and love the idea of them together, they are not real people. Not. Real. People. This disturbs me greatly. Sorry, but holy crap.

I have learnt to be really scared of this new generation of shippers. I don't ship Sherlock/John, but even if I did, they are fictional characters in contrast to Martin and Amanda and there's a difference between my imagination and canon.

It makes me wonder if some people have lost the ability to discern between reality and fiction. We did not have a tv when I was a child. For some people, tv is part of life from the day they are born. Maybe it seems just as real as everything else. I don't know. Regardless, the idea that it's okay to send out death threats to people who don't do things the way you want them done, or agree with you on everything, is really, really scary.
