Things that annoyed you in fan-fiction
(01-20-2017, 06:41 PM)LoopyPanda Wrote: I think the worst is the trend where they take series that are fantastic in genre/lore (i.e. magic, etc) and shove all the characters in the most normal, bland, "coffee shop" alternate universe. As in, they take the characters and just stick em in a boring ass setting. I read Harry Potter because of how UNLIKE the real world it is! I don't want to read some boring thing about if Harry was some normie!!!

I'd prefer if they took the normal "realistic" settings and made more fantastical AUs, but it's rare to find a good fanfic like that.

So much this Pls

Especially when they made no attempt to mention of what the series is about and practically into a slice-of-life scenario

A good goblin? There might be, if we just looked. But I think... The only good goblins are the ones who never come out of their stinking holes!

What grinds my gears is when they take existing notions, like harry potters statute of secrecy and toss it to the wind in hopes that it would create a better story.

I don't want to sound like a spoilsport but I absolutely HATE it when people tag fics as "ship/ship" but in reality their fic doesn't even have any passing mention of the ship. Or if they do, it's honestly written in a way that makes it clear to you that they actually hate the ship. Why even bother tagging it with the ship then?? I can't count how many times I've gone into AO3 expecting to see some Mercy/Reaper and end up with so many fics where it's actually Gency or Mercy76.....and with Reaper being Mercy's rapist or would-be rapist. It's absolutely despicable and I HATE it. Like, we get it, you don't like the ship!!!! Stop tagging your hatefics with the ship or just don't tag it with the ship at all if there's NOTHING about the ship in there!!!  Kat Slam

A single death can change everything.
