LOL of the day

February 9th, 2009 (10:36 pm)

A comment given to my latest Heroes story, "To Forget What You Did", at FanFiction.net (an unregistred user, so I can't say this to her/him in person):

su 2009-02-09 . chapter 1
ew...this is so gross
they are not gay

My answer to this? Let's quote the entry:

Pairing: Nathan/Peter
Warnings: Incest, implied death & resurrection, implied violence, implied voyeurism. Spoilers for Season 1 (up to episode .07%) and for Season 3 (concerning Angela Petrelli’s powers).

I wonder why people read stuff they won't like. So, to anyone else who might be reading this: warnings are not a hobby. They mean business. If it says "incest", you'll probably get incest in the fic too. If you don't know what that means, or what the word pairing means... check your closest Dictionary or Urbandictionary.


(I'm not offended by her comment, opinion, or thoughts. I'm offended that she dismissed the whole litany of info in the beginning of the story, and THEN bothered to read and found even the very light slashy/incest content *rolls eyes*)

I'm sure she meant... well, not "well" by any standards, so yeah, I must categorize it to "stupid people" as well XD

I didn't even bother to flag the comment, though. Everyone can go LOL over it now...

I can just picture some teenage girl in front of her screen going o.o... :P

Yeah, after the initial "why did someone BOTHER with this comment", I kind of laughed too.

Well, there's no other reasonable way to answer. Can't get upset over the fact that people don't read warnings, right? :D

I remember when I first found out about fanfiction, about slash to be more precise. I started to read this one story and I knew it was about gay men, because it was a Brokeback Mountain story. There's lots of HET fanfiction out there and so (to a point)its understandable that "new" readers dont exactly know that there's M/M slash out there too. Coming across those stories might offend them. But I agree with you, she/he should have read the warnings and, leaving this stupid comment afterwards (with the pairing naming two male names and a warning for "incest") is just ... completely dumb.

Peter no comment

Mmm, yeah, I remember when I first came across slash - I found it weird and funny, but got hooked pretty fast XD

Either way, I also remember how tough it was to learn all those words like slash, angst, h/c, and a bunch of other important words you need in this slashy fiction world. Thus I myself try to use word "homoerotic" or "homosexual" in place of "slash" so that everyone knows what they're getting into :D

And if characters are Nathan and Peter, everyone knows they're brothers in the show, and it also states that there is incest... big clues? XD *is amused*
