Living at a Pace That Kills: Chapter Ten - Buffy/Dean fic

Title: Living at a Pace That Kills: Chapter Ten
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: None so far
Warnings: Violence and language and character death
Genre: Thriller
Summary: Buffy’s life after the fall of Sunnydale takes a tragic turn, turning her to a hunter.
Disclaimer: The only real major difference in the Buffy story is how things ended up after the last episode of the series. It doesn’t follow the comics.  All characters and storylines from Buffy and Supernatural belong to their original creators, not me.
Note: I would like to thank the people here at LJ for all the nice reviews.  People elsewhere online have gotten REALLY nasty with me, so I do thank you. :)

To anyone who writes fanfic...

Ugh, I need someone to vent to.  Things like this are the reason I don't write a lot of fanfic.

I got an email this morning regarding my latest fanfic, telling me that the characters I wrote were nothing like the characters on the shows, based on their actions.  This is why I hate writing fanfic.  When I write my own fiction, I own the characters and can do whatever the hell I want with them.  With other people's characters, there's that whole thing about keeping within their boundaries.

I am neither Eric Kripke nor am I Joss Whedon, but I feel that I am doing a halfway decent job with the characters I am writing about.  They are my version of someone else's characters, hence the whole AU thing.

For once, I went back and told this to the person.  I wasn't snotty about the remark, I simply told them why I wrote the way I did.  Funny, they didn't respond.  And I found out that they have written nothing but similar reviews to other people and have written nothing of their own.  So that makes me feel better.

Thanks for listening to me vent.  And to all those on LJ who have left comments on my fanfics, you are awesome.  I have found nothing but decent comments from you, so thank you.
