My words :rofl: I don’t mind if they behave differently, but it should fit in the story naturally :slight_smile:

@MangleTMCP I can completely understand your point. I myself am fed up with porns in fanfics. Tbh, sometimes there is no plot at all. Personally, I wonder how embarrassing it might be for a celebrity to read a pornographic fanfiction about themselves. Then I just quit reading.

@Witto1501 I agree, a lemon is attractive if it is in accordance to the plot development. Otherwise you lose the flow and category becomes porn without plot.

@keepurheadup That’s what I meant by overly perfect characters. It is exhausting, isn’t it?

@MaskedObsession Same dude!!

I am actually fed up of people expecting fanfiction to turn otherwise villain soft for some stupid girl/boy instantly. I mean you can’t possibly expect bad or strict guys to turn mushy and giggly and all unicorns and rainbows at the very first site without an actual reason now, can you? That’s why we have good or laid-back guys in any fandom. This is also portraying them as someone else.

  1. I hope no one will take offense to this, but there’s too few fanfictions with straight ships in newer fandoms. It’s like all the modern fandoms have nothing but gay ships and gay relationships. Logically I know it’s because straight people have no trouble finding straight couples in fiction and seeing chemistry between opposite sex characters that isn’t really there, while lgbt people have to struggle to even get romantic chemistry between characters acknowledged. But I just want content written for some characters because I really love them and I think they would have amazing chemistry.

  2. I’m sick and tired of 60% of gay fanfictions centering on bdsm, alpha/omega werewolf dynamics or ddlg (that one’s just gross). Why can’t I have a nice 1980s punk AU that doesn’t involve sado-masochistic tendencies for once??

  3. There’s wayyyyyy too few lesbian fanfictions and even fewer ones that are explicit. It’s like bi/lesbian women themselves don’t have the drive to represent themselves, and especially not in explicit detail.

Not going to lie, I think I can relate to you to certain degree. I feel like sometime people get confused between romance and smut. I really want to read a good love story, and many times it happens that all I come across is explicit mature content. The characters going at it in continuation is a huge turn off for not only this genre, but in every genre.

I don’t have anything against interracial couples, but I have stopped reading stories about them after coming across this type of experience.

Are you saying that most interracial fanfictions you’ve come across are fetishizing?


#87

No the most but many. I am not sure what fetish means, but I have came across more explicit content exclusively.


#88

Hmm, I see what you mean. I love the LGBTQ+ ff, but sometimes the ships that go on are a little weird to extremely weird. Most of the time when I’m writing, I try to stay away from the whole romance anyway XD


#89

Basically, the things I’m sick of seeing in fanfics are repetitive scenario and barely readable grammar. I have a list of what I dislike from fanfics but those two are in my first list!


#90

I know a few of them with superb grammar that are open to any reader :smiley:

OOC fics drive me completely mad - if the author is going to change the character’s entire personality, why write fanfic at all?

Another thing that I cannot stand are explicit scenes. I get that authors want to live out their fantasies but I don’t need a play by play every single turn of the page.

I’m guessing most people who write fanfic do so for their own amusement and just don’t have the writing skills yet, or even care. There’s plenty of us who do write professionally, but trawling through the poor stuff can be tedious.
