Duplicate Trope (Page Action Crowner 2014-05-19): Ghost Shipping get usage counts

A fan could also simply ignore that the death happened. Like "Nope, that car crash never happened, *Fingers in ears* NOPE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN LALALALALALA!" or "She obviously jumped out of the car right before it went down the cliff."

We migth also need a line saying shipping set in the time before the death doesn't count. Like if the character dies in the second movie but the shipping is set between the two movies it's not an example.
Carpe by all means diem, but not all diem are worth carpe.
A fan who ignores the death happened but doesn't make a work about it isn't going to trigger additional tropes. The fan who ignores the death and writes a fanfic about it is Shrodingers Cast.

Adding the exceptions in.

Nitpick: the word you want is "canonically".
Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
Yikes :o clunky.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Page Action: Ghost Shipping

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Ghost Shipping as currently presented is too similar to Boy Meets Ghoul, with many overlapping examples. Further, Ghost Shipping is being used for both In Universe relationships between living and dead/undead characters and fan Shipping of such relationships.

As a note, The Lost Lenore covers the case of a character perpetually mourning the death of a loved one who is not coming back.
