The overall canon does not matter to me.
Sticking purely to canon implies no originality and imposes unnecessary restrictions. Of course, extreme deviations being the exceptions to this, for there are limits to how far one can go before it is not longer considered fan fiction, entering the boundaries of original work, the canon, of any genre or category, is boring to some degree. That's why we write these things in the first place. Some part of us wishes things were different, so instead of waiting for the writers to do it, we take matter into our own hands; shaping things that we love in our own personal image, essentially creating our own canons. Everyone's personal canon is their own and as such, should be respected; not necessarily accepted, which are two completely different things.
I'm a cartoon guy, but that doesn't mean I don't like other things. The canons I write therefore, tend to be somewhat varied; however, all of them have a very specific tone and goal in mind. My stories are usually darker than most, tackling mature themes and dealing with somewhat realistic scenarios in the hopes of bringing humanistic qualities to non-human characters. The reason for this is out of the principle belief that comes through in all of my work, both fan fiction and original, that cartoons, and animation in general, but specifically American animation, can be so much more than it currently is. That being said, even though my stories are dark in tone I am not completely without feeling as my comedies, especially the earlier works "Welcome to Disney World" and "Learn to Fly: The Story of Jose Carioca, His Friends, and a Naturalist" both of which are in the Disney fandom, showcase some of my comedic side. Granted, neither of these stories reflect my current writing ability, but they are still prime examples. More recent examples are "On Top of the World", a redux of WDW; and "Standing at the Edge of the World" for a dark comedy.
I am going to be blunt here, I don't like a lot of romances. The reason for this is because all romances tend to follow the same story structure and pattern and I find that to be incredibly boring. I am not going against these types of stories, for there are some people who like them, but they not something that you will ever catch me writing. The exception to the rule however are tragic romances. To be clear, in my case these type of stories don't focus on the romance in its entirety, the romance often serving as a small piece of a much larger, and frankly more interesting plot. Tragic romances are chiefly character driven, just like regular romances, but because they are tragic in nature the reader needs time to build a strong relationship with the characters involved, which is the reason why the romantic aspects are often downplayed in many cases. See "Stockholm Syndrome"; "No Vacancy"; and "Welcome to Disney World" for good examples of this.
