You're right, but my beef is with -pure- blind wish fulfillment that discards anything in its path, not with the idea itself :> Anyway, the sort of people who have issues with a fic/pairing just because it 'never happened' have no imagination or creative spark :/ Heh. It's not that Mary-Sue fic is not 'valid', it's that it's not
fic, which is... what I meant :> Like, to me it's about what I want to see in terms of subject-matter and/or pairing, but not execution. I'd rather throw up in my mouth a little than have to write Snape/Lily or H/D where they always skipped around holding hands and sniffing daisies, from the beginning till the end. My point was about contextualizing, not being rigidly 'this is how it is in canon'. If you at least give a good context/explanation for why they're suddenly delirious and insane, I'd be more likely to buy it :>
Also, motivation is different from execution... like if they slash for 'teh hottness' but care about other things (music, context, basic facts), fine... but if they blatantly announce none of that matters, it gets annoying.... and the fic suffers, too, so I get to be smug about it :D
