    Very well spoken… while I’m not into that scene, I understand where you are coming from because it just seems ridiculous and you find it in all genres of fan fiction really, not many people branch out from the stereotypical “norms.” No matter how un-normal they are, haha.

      Haha, thanks for stopping by. ^_^

      I’m not saying these writers shouldn’t stick to just one genre, but in this particular field of fan fiction, it looks like the “one genre only” had become more of a “following” trend (it’s one of those things where when someone notices one thing in common w/ other writers they start writing in the same genre thinking that if they “branch out”, they won’t be read). I also understand that each writer has a specific type of target audience, but fandoms such as these are very vast and there are a lot of people out there who may want to get in to this sort of thing.

      I’m pretty sure this similar issue happens to all types of fanfiction. For example, Twilight. Most likely fanfics based on that book series/movie will mostly be (sexual?) romance rather than something like a mystery (as in how vampires suddenly exist in that town, etc. etc.) or adventure even. That kind of thing.

      But yes, I need to rant out something like this before I go insane and lose my mind. ^^
