I'm only as arrogant as I am humble.
I like stereotypes done right. The old, dedicated (usually religion), martial artist that knew the main character for long before the main character knew him has a regret from before the story and by suffering for the main character's development finds his own destiny. Is this Warriors of Virtue, the Matrix, Star Wars, Alias,...? I like anti-stereotypes like Shinji Ikari and Asuka Langley Sohryu. I like poigniancy that is obvious rather than subtle, like Leon the Professional or 28 Days Later. I like complex scams/plot arcs such as Alias or Angel.
What I dislike:Cowardice on the part of the author. Takeshi Miike is one of the bravest folks making movies and his work ranges from horrifyingly unappealing to brilliant. But at least he isn't the Wachowski brothers trying to sell an anime non-ending to a christian trilogy. Conceit on the part of the author. If someone likes you writing self promoting tripe that only pleases your own insecurities, they'd put it up on your refrigerator. If you aren't writing fan-fiction from a fan's point of view, then why bother? No matter how crazy the crossover or out of left field the events that the known characters and accepted premises of what you're 'fan-ficcing' are, fan-fic readers are looking for exactly that.
ex. Let's say you're doing a Care Bears cross-over with Batman. You should know that the typical Care Bear cartoon went a)the bears lived amongst the clouds b)they spotted someone that was mopey c)they tried to correct his or her perspective on their lives (not necessarily their actual lives) d)they only resort to their beams of concentrated specialized emotion as a last resort because any improvement in their target by the beams could be temporary and hence false. Batman stories are usually his continuing acquiescence to his own trauma by forcing himself to be enough to handle a criminal whose danger is his insanity rather than raw power, even if he's forcing everyone who wants to help him away. The obvious fic is that the care bears try to get Batman to 'get over' his parent's death. Does he give up being Batman and how much harm does that do to the world? Does he treat the kind helpers like his own cohorts and put them at arms length or does he treat them as attackers or his own psyche snapping at the pressure of being Batman. What it can not be is gifting Batman with his own 'care beam' in the first scene and him prancing around turning criminals good. Not even in a Brave and the Bold crossover. No.
So hopefully, what you'll get from my writing is a)what you got out of the work I'm writing a fan fic of b)a finite tale, as opposed to self congradulatory prattle c)something that touches, even if it is only a 'heh' of a chuckle or a slightly raised eyebrow instead of shock and awe.
I've found a flaw in my fan-fic writing though. I tend to write stuff that I don't know exactly how it will end. The moment I know everything, my gumption falls off tremendously.
The flaws in my writing is that I do fights and plot way better than I do grammar and emotional rests. Working on it.
Stuff getting cranked out: Spawn, Cyber Six, Noir.
What should be getting cranked out: sequels to My First Boyfriend, prequel to Summit of Peace, Shikabane Hime: Madame Red, Fillmore is not a Freeman.
Stuff suffering from inattention: a Hellsing/Ghost in the Shell crossover (now waiting on the re-issue of Hellsing anime) and finishing Mid City (just need to bother to do it), Lizzie the Vampire Slayer (I have the plot in my head, just no impetus to get it onto the screen) and Quark's Harem (a future fic commentary on how Quark was the Casanova of Star Trek Deep Space Nine).
Completely abandoned: Gantz (80% of what I wanted to write is in Shikabane Hime:Yori just missing the Shego issues, as well as a desire to eliminate the Teen Titan additon), Harry Potter and the Alias cross over (one chapter is done, I have plot for ~4 more but the story is for about 20 so I'm declaring an impasse), Legend of Zelda:Tactical Espionage Action (which started out as an idea then turned into a joke, I wouldn't mind the original idea but time?).
