So if you’re a writer, you write what you want – what you know. And what you write is a very personal choice. And of course fanfiction writers get “paid” in feedback from their readers. It’s how we not only survive, but thrive!
I was perusing a due South story, and found probably one of the nastiest feedbacks I’ve ever read. I mean this person was awful! Exact quote:
Fraser’s a horrible person to break up with Ray at Christmas and choose that immature Kowalski over Ray. I hate F/K slash, especially those written by stupid shippers who obviously hate RayV.
Excuse my language, but are you fucking kidding me?!?!? This person read a story on their own free will, with a pairing that they already don’t like, and then insulted the author because they didn’t like the outcome!
