Is there a citation for the claim in the Girl Genius section that Word of God says Zeetha and Higgs are siblings? Because I've not seen that suggested anywhere, including the GG Wiki, and I don't really see how it works given the canon information we have.

EDIT: I've pulled it now. I honestly wonder if whoever added it misunderstood which character Zeetha was being paired with.

What happens if someone in-universe refers to an actual couple this way? Does it belong on this page or somewhere else?

It goes here, with a note saying "In-universe example" or similar.

Is this shipping-only? I ask because the creative team of Ryan Sohmer and Lar Desouza is known by fans as Sohlar. As far as I am aware nobody is shipping them.

Does anyone else think this trope is just generally annoying?

Yes. Very much indeed.

Wait, so what's the portmanteau 'drapery' mean in Harry Potter fandom? I can't figure it out.

Draco/Snape/Harry. Or so I assume, I've never heard the term in use.

Just curious, why is this a YMMV trope? Isn't whether this is done or not an objective fact?

I guess it's YMMV as an Audience Reaction trope when the fandom does it, but I think it's also one of the most commonly Invoked YMMV tropes.
