    i think it gets a bit tricky for professionals to comment on posts like this, it can get messy with ip/plagiarism claims etc. it's one reason they tend to decline reading fanfics

    i think that's a fair way of teasing out the differences between the bucky/todd/reilly revivals. i'll admit that i had to sit with my feelings after ben's unmasking in cc.

    ha, i can be a bit blunt at times. but please don't feel attacked. when you talk about enforced status quo, my interpretation was that you were after the opposite: permanent change. thanks for...

    well, both. even if peter is corrected by kaine, it's still a correction. the end result will preserve peter's heroism.

    and getting annoyed that peter won't become a villain and blaming it due to...

    all i've been interested in was creative approach and challenging the idea that any creator's daily approach to ideas is "how do i eff up this character for lolz" or "i will purposefully do something...

    whereas you see morally ambiguous, i read that as moral exploration. it's not that he's the punisher or the illuminati, he's on a journey to discover what is right.

    how far he's become distanced...

    the content of the stories isn't what i'm worried about here. you don't like it and that's fine. i haven't read most of the stuff you've listed, so no point in my commenting on it, monkey's paw and...

    no confusion, but maybe...just maybe...the discussion is more nuanced (as i suggested in my edited post above). it's not a simple dichotomy of "write what fans want" vs "crapping on our characters"....
