I tried googling the phrase “I hate fanfic” in hopes of finding somebody with a similar annoyance to one I have. Sometimes it’s fun to see a hateful rant that echoes your prejudices. But there were zero good results on the first page when I tried this. The closest to the exact phrase and intent was from somebody that seemed to hate it because their own fic was not well received – that ain’t me, chief.
I don’t actually have time to get into depth about this right now, just wasting a precious minute due to the naggings of that imp of the perverse. But I will likely elaborate if pressed, or if I’m feeling similarly irresponsible at some point later in the next few days. I feel safe in making this declaration here because nobody in my writers group – which includes many ficcers – reads my blog.
Let this somehow rise through the google ranks like a phoenix and spark a conversation that doesn’t center either the demented opinions of ficcers, or the needlessly hateful opinions of people who are just legit misogynists or elitists.
