Sentimental yet sardonic [userpic]

My iPod is currently sat at home, securely placed in the same location that I placed it just before going to writerconuk. You know, the incredibly obvious place where I can't fail to pick it up before leaving.

Random fic irritation : whereas I don't mind the fics where someone turns out to be gay instead of their canon preference, I draw the line at fics where suddenly everyone is gay. Buffy/Willow? Ok, let's see where that goes instead of throwing in Dawn/female, and Guest Female character/Original female character, etc. I see Xander's coming up soon, and I have grave fears....

I have actually done this. It wasn't till I was nearly finished the entire 40,000 word fic that I realised, and there was no way I was going back to do a total rewrite at that point, so an entirely gay universe it stayed :-DD

Hee! Your poor iPod will think you don't love it any more. *g*

I've read several fics where everyone is 'gay now!', and backed out of a whole lot more.

There's one McShep (Stargate Atlantis) fic, where there are a huge number of gay people on Atlantis because the CO at Stargate Command kept sending anyone he thought was gay to the Pegasus galaxy to get rid of them.

There's at least one other where they posit that the ATA gene (that allows carriers to activate Ancient tech) also increases (exponentially) the possibility that the carrier is bi.

Ah, fandom. Never stop being fun. :D
