No I get exactly where you're coming from, and you're right, 100% dead on right. I've never meant to come across as being against those writers who don't like or even buy into the slash vibe at all. Hell, you ship who you want, who am *I* to say what works, I write freaking Lindsey/Riley, for the love of all thing Jossy. But it's the dissmissive "just a trend" attitude that tweaks me. Also, yeah, we've been wading through badfic for years, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting badfic writers, surely you can POINT ONE OUT.

*waves hands in annoyance* It's just so silly. Like you said, if you want to be sad because your fave Spuffy writer has found a new topic that caught her attention, be sad. I'll hand you the tissues. More great Buffy writers have left the fandom altogether than I care to count, and I can relate to the loss of the work of your favorite people. Luckily there's still amazing folks left, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't all sniffly about the ones who aren't here no more. (*sniffle*) But I haven't started ranting about the other fandoms that seduced them away. I just miss them. It's not the other fandom's fault that they appeared all shiny and new.

Unless it's those damn HP plagiarists, those perverted popslashers, or those snotty BNF SV freaks, of course.
