So I said I might write some meta about I Ship It… and how I don’t ship it. Or more accurately, how I friend-ship it.
(I should clarify that I adore the film. Adore. It. I just can’t get behind the titular ship.)
I like these thoughts. These are good thoughts. During the writing process, this was an issue that I was very consciously worried about, and did make some efforts to address throughout different versions of the script. Spoilers forthcoming, along with some anatomy of a script revision.
