Why Are 'SuleMio' and 'Destiel' Shippers At War?

For those who don't know, "Destiel" is a very popular slash pairing between Supernatural protagonists Dean and Castiel. It's arguably the most popular ship on Tumblr and has been for years. SuleMio, on the other hand, is a newer ship pairing between Gundam: The Witch from Mercury characters Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran.

Despite the SuleMio ship only beginning in 2022, the year Witch from Mercury started, it recently beat the Destiel ship pairing in a "Tumblr Top Ships Bracket" by user ao3topshipsbracket. The poll garnered over 60,000 votes in four days, with over 65% of those votes going towards SuleMio. This left Destiel fans, who mainly conglomerate on Tumblr and have since the early 2010s, a little bit shocked.

How Are People Reacting To The SuleMio vs. Destiel Ship Wars?

As members of each respective fandom became aware of the shocking poll results, supporters of each ship pairing began warring with one another. Some are taking this incredibly seriously and claiming that Destiel was robbed, claiming it should win for its legacy and impact on Tumblr alone.

SuleMio fans are defending their ship as deserving of the crown, claiming the ship has flown under the radar historically and is overall more wholesome and endearing than the Destiel ship. The war has led to a lot of memes on both Tumblr and X celebrating SuleMio as the new "ultimate ship" on Tumblr, along with long-form text posts by users passionately arguing for their side of the war.

I love the passion form both sides but we must agree to be kind. What destiel did for the LGBTQ community helped laid the groundwork for shows like "the Witch from Mercury" to have openly gay characters and the fact that Destiel made it to the finals shows how popular Destiel still is, So let's put any nastiness behind us and let's have some fun. So come on Supernatural community give us a go fight that will become a legend that the tumblr bards will sing for all eternity! #cannons sink ships 19,498 notes May 14th, 2024 ... yakapin Follow why should i give destiel credit for "laying groundwork for shows like the witch from mercury to have openly gay characters" when gundam preceded destiel and spn by years and the creator of gundam is grateful for the fujoshis for keeping it alive during it's heydays. why exactly should i do that when witch from mercury and sulemio's history isn't destiel or anything from spn but can be traced to media like. revolutionary girl utena which, again surprise surprise, preceded destiel and spn by years. can you explain to me the logic here?
