8 Things I Absolutely Loath in Fiction of Any Kind, Be It Fannish or Original )

There will probably be more later. You know, when I can focus. :p

ETA 9 & 10 and the usual disclaimer, which is as follows: Yes, yes there are exceptions to these rules. To all of these rules. There are people who can make one of my boys crying absolutely believable, there are times when boys talking about their feelings is understandable, there are times when a really good writer gets a hold of something and makes me believe it no matter what. It's all a matter of what you do with what you've got.

* Except for when it is. Which is rare, yes, but there are fandoms where I find it acceptable. Firefly, as [ profile] musesfool pointed out. The captain is accepted. The doc is as well, usually. Though really, I think both depend on the point of view character. If you're writing a Firefly fic from River's point of view then Simon will always be Simon, he will never be "the doc".
Current Mood: aggravated
Current Music: the tv, very loud, in the other room
