Here is an excerpt from a rant from a fellow author on this site, by the name of pudgypudge. This extends from his "Allow Me to Retort" section:
"There comes a time in a writer's life where sometimes it just doesn't seem worth it anymore to take the time out of our busy lives and write for people. Critics, readers, reviewers, all of you, sometimes, just aren't worth it. The people who insist on pointing out things in stories that they feel are blaringly obvious need to lighten up.
It's fiction folks, learn to let yourself be taken away.
A good story should be like a river, sweeping the author away into a whirlwind of possibilities and outcomes, in a tasteful and entertaining manner. But the problem is, some readers insist on fighting the current and don't want to be swept away. They cling to perceived reality, when in reality there are no set parameters, especially in fanfiction.
Let go of your way of thinking and allow the author to tell the tale. Don't browbeat and nitpick, just enjoy the story for what it is; entertaining literature put out by an author for your enjoyment and their amusement. It's free, you don't pay anything, so why bitch and complain if something doesn't go to your liking? There's a little button in the upper right corner of your screen and it's real easy to just click it...
You have to let the story tell itself people. You can't always have your way, every story can't be the same. That's boring. If you think everything should be the same, adhere to the same rules, be written your way...write the damn story yourself. But don't tell authors how to write their own story. It's degrading and completely tasteless. Don't bash someone's ideas because you don't like them...
Except for yaoi...bash that till the cows come home..."
