Should there be a Sub-Trope for someone Shipping to people together even if they are Crushing on one of the two? (OR maybe even both) Could be simply cause they want to be happy, or some other more bizarre logic.

If shipper is in love with one half of his OTP then it's I Want My Beloved to Be Happy.

The user Saiyan5ninetails is actively trying to start and Edit War via deleting this entry and giving really weak reasons to do so. Tatsuki Arisawa here expressed an open interest into having her friend Orihime confess to Ichigo Kurosaki, and nothing has said she has has changed her interests.

Not to mention, the user has been caught vandalizing other Bleach-related entries that contain favorable allusions to the character of Tatsuki Arisawa, deleting them on practically no grounds. Having expressed his distate for Tatsuki AND the Ichigo/Orihime pairing openly in several other places like the One Manga forums and Bleach Asylum, it's clear that he cannot take other tropers's opinions that are favorable to either of them, so he takes to throw a fit and delete them for no real reason.

Saiyan, I thought you had learned to tolere other people's opinions. I see, I was wrong.

OK, I will pull the entire section here so that this argument can be sorted out.

Moderator speaking: This is a poorly written example. Unless the example can be rewritten to eradicate opinion and natter is should be cut.

How is bringing up the definition of the trope a flimsy excuse? As I stated, it was a one-time event that was played for comedy, and Tatsuki has never tried pairing Ichigo up with Inoue ever since in the past ten years of Bleach. The trope states that it is "Shipper on Deck" when a character ACTIVELY ships one character with another. This does not apply to...well, both Bleach examples, because they were both moments that were played for laughs.

How's this for a rewrite option?

  • When Tatsuki learned that Orihime had ducked out of Ichigo's offer to walk her home, her response was to chastise Orihime for not taking advantage of the moment before launching into an increasingly amusing and shocking list of suggestions on how Orihime could create a situation that would enable Ichigo to take advantage of her.

That covers what happened in the manga without getting into fandom opinion.
