babel: (beatles - j/p check please)
I want to discuss a trope that I really can't stand in fanfiction, the one where Character A is hopelessly in love with Character X so s/he hooks up with Character Y.

Now, in theory, I have no (or... few) problems with this set up. It could be quite interesting to explore the consequences for the three characters involved. However, the way it's handled usually leaves me fairly furious, and here's why.

(Note: I'm discussing this with a focus on slash because I haven't encountered it as much in het or femslash--probably because I haven't read as much of it.)

This got really, really long. )
