I've just been inducted into "The Club"

When I say, "The Club", I'm talking about the one that is comprised of a group of Sam/Daniel writers who have to deal with readers who hate that particular pairing and will say pretty outrageous things to justify why they don't like said pairing (i.e., Sam and Daniel are siblings, etc. and so on and so forth)

I've only written one such story, The Long Road Home, although Tangled Alliances does focus on a possible Sam/Daniel relationship. Still, the majority of my stories revolve around Jack, so I was surprised when I received a comment on my latest WIP fic, Tears of a Warrior asking if there was going to be a Sam/Daniel pairing, especially since I didn't mention that pairing. Now I know better than to try to sneak in a pairing without giving people notice, and in fact made sure to mention in a warning notice that this was a Jack/Other pairing. So with all my cards laid out on the table (so to speak), I was surprised that this person would think I would try to sneak in something.

Anyway, I replied to the comment, telling the person that there will not be a Sam/Daniel pairing (or references thereof), while at the same time, mentioning that I really like that pairing and I think they make a great couple. I did this in a nice way, and the reader responded back in a nice manner, as well. No hard feelings on either side. But what I think has inducted me into "The Club" is what the reader told me in his/her response, and I quote, "that's fantastic news, cause that pairing just makes me shudder and I personally don't think they make a good couple. They're too much sibling-like for me to ever like it or not shudder at the thought of it. But, as long as someone isn't trying to force it upon me, I ignore it."

"Too much sibling-like". :D
Does this qualify me for membership or what??
