You know what truly amazes me about Cait (and to a lesser extent, Sam) these days?

That she, and they, are still attracting new shippers. I think that’s really a testament to us, these blogs, to this community that has endured through A LOT.

Because reading this new interview of Cait’s, looking at how little she talks about her show or career on social media, I wouldn’t become a fan if I was new around these streets. I definitely wouldn’t start shipping her with Sam, because for the most part, they give us so little.

She has established through words (print and spoken) several times that she is not with Sam and never was. Why is she still answering questions about it in interviews? Why even talk about it anymore? That engagement ring should be all the explanation anyone needs. Yet someone allows for it to be brought up every single time because she and Sam - SamCait - THAT is the interesting part of the whole story.

So what this all tells me is that people, new fans, anyone who is curious about her or them, is googling. And they’re finding tumblr. They’re finding shipper blogs - they’re discovering us and who we are and all those receipts we have screencapped and memorized and talk about all the time.

It’s enough to make people scratch their heads and go huh. And then they start to ship, whether they mean to or not. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? That everything we have seen and documented - it’s powerful enough to bring on new people all the time even when the two people at the center of it are saying don’t do it.

I wonder why that is.
