Basic Trope: A ship is abandoned by fans after Word of God sinks it.

  • Straight: Word of God or Canon ends the Alice/Bob ship by revealing they're Brother and Sister.
  • Exaggerated: The writer kills off either Alice or Bob, ending their ship.
  • Justified: Only the most devoted (or perverted) of shippers would ship brother and sisters together.
  • Inverted: The knowledge that Alice and Bob are siblings causes even more fans to ship them together.
  • Subverted: The writer says s/he was just joking when s/he said that.
  • Double Subverted: But follows it up with "But they're still blood related."
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Parodied: ???
  • Deconstructed: A large number of the fandom stops reading the work after the Alice/Bob ship is sunk.
  • Reconstructed: Most of them were only fans in name anyway: the trash took itself out. And the Fandom Rejoiced.
  • Averted: ???
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "I imagine a lot of people will be shocked by our being related."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: See Lampshaded.
  • Conversed: "Can you believe they sunk Alice x Bob like that?" "I know. I just can't bring myself to ship them anymore."
  • Plotted A Good Waste: ???
