Re: Non-Con Strange: what's going on here?

As someone equally taken by the sandwich!fic and French soldiers!fic, I wish I could say why I love them so much but I don't really know. I also tend to prefer my fic a bit less theatrical, just because I find I have a harder time connecting to that and losing myself in the story.

When it comes to liking terrible things happening to characters I love, I've actually thought about this before. I always end up back at a documentary I watched once about women involved in the horror movie industry. They asked one participant why she loved horror so much and she said that she also loves romantic comedies, but since that wasn't considered outside the norm, no one would think to ask why she liked those.

For me, I always kind of end up at: you just like what you like. Though I'd love to know if other people can pin down their thoughts more succinctly than I can.

I hear you! There is no way I am going to tell even my closest friends that I read a really good fanfic last night where Jonathan Strange was gang-raped, and I loved every second of it.
