Jane –

Do you know what #Rogeliban means? Is it what I think it is?

Your loving and extremely famous father,

Rogelio

Oh god. I’m not sure if I’m the one who should be telling you this, but…there’s this thing called slash, which is when fans write fiction about male characters who are in romantic or sexual relationships with each other? And it seems some of your fans are taking to this with your new role on Pasión Intergaláctica? I don’t know, maybe it’s more of a thing with your English-language fans?

Jane, I am very familiar with the wonderful fan fiction written by both English and Spanish-speaking Rogeliovers. I myself have read many “shipping” stories where Santos falls in love with Blanca’s long-lost twin brother, Sebastian Contreras, who was kidnapped and raised by their mother’s jealous ex-lover for the sole purpose of killing Blanca when he grew up, but of course once he meets his sister and El Presidente he cannot go through with his evil deed. My favorite story was the one where they are actually all werewolves and Sebastian falls in love with Santos so that they can raise puppies together.

But my fans do not know yet what character I will be playing on Pasión Intergaláctica. How can they be excited about his relationship with Esteban’s character when they have not met yet?

Your loving and well-informed father,
Rogelio

Never underestimate the power of fandom to create relationships between characters who barely interact. I mean, Sebastian wasn’t on Passions of Santos for very long, was he? Maybe three episodes?

But…in this case it’s more likely, given the pairing name, that they were actually talking about shipping you and Esteban. You know. As actors. And people.

But why??? Don’t they know he is my sworn enemy and rival??????

Your loving and perplexed father,
Rogelio

No, because in public you pretend to be friends, right?

I must check the fandom sites to see if this is true.

Your loving and intrepid father,
Rogelio

Jane, you were completely correct about #Rogeliban, it is exactly what I feared. There are even people saying that I was happy for Esteban when he won the Best Actor award, which is ridiculous because he is a highly overrated actor. But do not worry, I’ve taken care of the problem.

Your loving and resourceful father,
Rogelio

Oh no. Rogelio, what did you do?

 

To: janegvillanueva@gmail.com
From: rogeliodlv@yahoo.com

I’ve decided to post my own fan fiction story that suggests a much better option of partner for myself.

Your loving and highly romantically compatible father,
Rogelio

…Rogelio, please, please, please tell me you didn’t post fic about you and Mom.

Jane, I would never invade the privacy of a real relationship in such a way. I asked Michael if he would mind turning our bromance into something more online. He was very happy to help.

Your loving and incredibly thoughtful father,
Rogelio

Text message from Jane to: Mom
You have to talk to Rogelio. I’m really worried he’s going to find some of the RPF I wrote about him when I was in high school. I locked it down when I found out about him, but now he’s gone and created an AO3 account.

Text message from Xiomara to: Jane
Oh Janey, it was all so good! Don’t be ashamed of your writing!

Text message from Jane to: Mom
MOM. You’re not supposed to be proud when you find erotic fanfiction that your daughter wrote about an actor, you’re supposed to be horrified, ESPECIALLY when said actor is actually secretly the father of said daughter, and the person your daughter shipped him with was his female co-star on his hit telenovela

Text message from Xiomara to: Jane
That was a little weird for me, I admit. But he won’t have a problem with it, you know that. He’ll probably be flattered.

Text message from Jane to: Mom
That’s exactly what I’m afraid of. What if he prints it out and frames it? What if he SHOWS IT TO PEOPLE?

Text message from Xiomara to: Jane
Why don’t you just delete it, then?

Text message from Jane to: Mom
…it still gets so many kudos though

Text message from Jane to: Michael
I can’t believe you let him go through with this

Text message from Michael to: Jane
I thought it was kind of cute?

Text message from Jane to: Michael
You thought it was cute that my dad wants to post fanfiction about your non-existent sordid sexual relationship?

Text message from Michael to: Jane
Well, when you put it like that…but I read it, it’s not actually that sexual or sordid

Text message from Jane to: Michael
You read it?

Text message from Michael to: Jane
He asked me to beta!

Text message from Jane to: Michael
What is wrong with ALL OF YOU
