Subject: That's just plain unimaginative writing.(r)

Getting rid of the character in middle can be done, and done *without* making them OOC.

Fannish misogyny certainly does exist, but it happens as much in het fandom as it does in slash fandom. Not that I'm implying that merely not liking a female character equals misogyny, or that somehow all female authors *must* write about female characters - but there are fans out there with the "Ewww, girls" attitude. Thankfully, I don't have to interact with them on a daily basis. *g*

who insisted that slash is nothing more or less than an expression of heterosexual female desire for the male body, written by and for heterosexual women.

Actually, this heterosexual woman would like to have a chat with this person. This is one more example of random generalisations - *I* like X, so rest of the world must also like X. *rolls eyes*

That's Amanda's job in these stories - the fact that this behavior is pretty wildly OOC was at once acknowledged and dismissed as irrelevant to the project at hand - ie getting Duncan and Methos into the sex ASAP.

That is, as far as I'm concerned, unimaginative writing. Poor writing, even.

there are others who clearly don't value it in the same way.

Yes, certainly. I used to be bothered by this, but nowadays I've come to accept that different people read fanfiction for different reasons, and that their kind of fic isn't necessarily my kind. *sigh*


PS- Is Duncan the character played by Adrian Paul? Because only yesterday I was looking at some *very* non-worksafe pictures of him and thinking, "mmm, pretty".
