For the love of (insert heroic/religious figure here, in my case Gerard)!

I half agree with you, but I think you're really stereotyping 'frerard' stories. Yes, they are the most common on this site, but I've read several really original ones as well as cliche ones (some of which I enjoy reading a lot- as long as they're well written), and I've found, from reading various pairings, that if the story is genuinely a good story and well written, it doesn't matter what pairing it is at all, because the story- and how the author paints the characters- is what captures your interest. After a while, you don't even think about them being 'Frank' and 'Gerard', just the characters the author has created.

I also half-agree with you on the whole description thing. Yes, cliche description to a certain extent is uninteresting, but where would stories be without description?

Everyone has their own way of writing, so I'd judge that- not whatever pairing they've chosen.

Sorry if I've come across as rude; I'm not trying to be at all, simply expressing an opinion...hope you find some stories that you enjoy soon :)

Author's response

I admit to stereotyping, I'm sorry, but I do want to defend myself a little bit and say that stereotypes happen for a reason. I'm not saying it's right at all, but it happens.

I half agree with you. There are some good original stories out there with this particular pairing but just because it's a well written story doesn't necessarily mean you can somehow become interested in something you aren't really into. For example, I can't seem to really get a feel for stories with male/male pairings, not because I'm homophobic or anti-gay, I just can't relate/connect to it.

I'm not trying to judge what pairing they use I'm just wondering where all the male/female pairings went because I've seen so few lately.

Description = Super important. But making a list?

I think theres a lot of talent here. What I said was just a suggestion, no one has to agree with me but it's something to think about.

Thanks for sharing your opinion, I think its really important for people to share their views. I respect everything you have said and I didn't think it was rude at all.
