So today I was working on my startrekbigbang
and took a well-deserved break. I said to myself, "Self, you deserve to read some fic." So I did. And oh, wow, did I regret it. Because I ran into a part of fandom that I have never understood:
Now, look, we all know that there are characters who I don't like very much. I frequently bitch about them and their actions on LJ/DW/tumblr, etc. There are a lot of characters I don't like. I'm sure most of fandom can guess who they are.
And you know what? When I think someone is an asshole or that a pairing sucks ... I just don't write about them. Instead, I write about pairings and characters I do like!
Why is this so hard?
People cry and cry about Mary Sue fics, but I think someone who writes a Mary Sue fic is 100x more mature than the asshole who writes a bashing fic.
On a very
related note, some awesome panels from Kid Flash Lost, let me show you them: ( THIS is how you write a superhero family )
I haven't liked Bart much since they brought him back, but this made me love him all over again. :) This
is the Bart I remember and love. And he's awesome and fantastic.
And so is his Grandpa. Haters gonna
act like children
P.S., there is an awesome wip over on the capkinkmeme
that has really put me in a slave fic kind of mood, so if you have any recs for that genre for any fandom, I would eat them like candy.
