Character bashing…I just don’t get it. I understand that people have favorites and least favorites. I have mine but I try my damnedest to be even handed to all characters because no character is perfect!
Take Supernatural: Dean = womanizer & sometimes not that bright, Sam = Emo to the umpteenth degree & poor taste in movies (I mean he liked the new Godzilla *shudders*), John = obsessive & demanding, Bobby = …okay Bobby has no faults but you see what I mean!
If you don’t like them don’t write them and for all that is holy don’t request it in a challenge! It’s childish and so very stupid and turns off people who might have actually taken your challenge.
Also FYI: Xander was not inept! Willow was not blacked hearted! Buffy was not a heinous bitch—all the time!
Though I’ve noticed Xander fics usually attack Buffy and Willow the most. *shakes head* Did those authors forget that Xander loved both of them? That he risked his life more than once to save theirs and they did the same for him? Did they forget his ‘yellow crayon’ speech to Willow or his ‘Buffy’s a hero’ speech to the mini!Slayers? For the love of God please find a better way to put Xander up than putting Buffy and Willow down.
Here endeth the rant.
