"It's just a comic."

But it is a gift, as a writer, to be able to create a character or a couple that comes to life. It's magic. It really is magic. It's what writers want. It's what writers strive for. It's the actual thing that matters. And so when a writer makes that magic and then turns around and goes, "Ugh, why does the audience care so much? It's fiction," it is the most insulting and disingenuous thing, and it really gets my goat.
