'''Basic Trope''': A fan refuses to believe a pairing will be canon, even if it gets lots of ShipTease.
* '''Straight''': Charlie the fan doesn't believe Alice and Bob will become the OfficialCouple, preferring to ship [[FanPreferredCouple Denise and Bob]].
* '''Exaggerated''': Charlie ''still'' thinks this way even ''after'' Alice[=/=]Bob becomes the OfficialCouple.
* '''Downplayed''': While there's no evidence in canon that Alice and Bob like each, WordOfGod says that they'll eventually get together. Despite this, Charlie still pairs Bob and Denise, which, at the moment, [[ShipTease actually has a tiny bit of basis in the canon.]]
* '''Justified''':
** Carol and Bob are Charlie's favorite characters. He also has a dim view of Alice.
** Alice/Bob becoming canon would be too [[CrackPairing contro]][[NoYay versial]] because of [[PrecociousCrush their]] [[{{shotacon}} vast]] [[{{lolicon}} age]] [[ToyShip difference]], Bob raped Alice or vice-versa, one of them abuses the other, etc. So Charlie thinks that all the ShipTease is either done for shock value or [[RelationshipWritingFumble accidental]].
** WordOfGod is that Alice and Bob will ''not'' be an an OfficialCouple, or even that [[NoHuggingNoKissing this isn't a series with romance]].
* '''Inverted''': ShippingGoggles
* '''Subverted''': Charlie prefers Denise[=/=]Bob, but accepts Alice[=/=]Bob's canonization...
* '''Double Subverted''': ...because he wants to talk about how Edith[=/=]Frank is totally not canon and Frank will almost certainly get together with Carol.
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob [[BreakingTheFourthWall tells Charlie straight out]] he loves Alice. [[FanDumb Charlie still ships him with Denise]].
** Bob and Alice are an OfficialCouple. Harry the ShipperOnDeck still thinks they'll never be together even as they make out in front of him.
** Or [[ShipperOnDeck Harry]] talks about how Alice and Bob would never get together while they proceed to make out right behind him.
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': Charlie moves on to shipping Alice[=/=]Bob when it becomes canon.
* '''Enforced''': "We want to make this LoonyFan look stupid. Hey, how about we make him refuse to acknowledge the blatantly obvious OfficialCouple?"
* '''Lampshaded''': "Come on, Charlie. Alice and Bob are getting together and you know it."
* '''Invoked''': Charlie is a {{Troll}} trying to piss off Alice[=/=]Bob shippers.
* '''Exploited''': A pro-Alice[=/=]Bob {{Troll}} spams Charlie's inbox with messages about how he's a total dumbass for shipping Denise[=/=]Bob.
* '''Defied''': "No, I'm not an idiot who won't accept Alice[=/=]Bob's canonization, what gave you that idea?"
* '''Discussed''': "Why do you think Charlie won't accept Alice[=/=]Bob's canonization?"
* '''Conversed''': "There are a lot of [[LoonyFan crazy fans]] on TV who don't accept canon pairings, aren't there?"
