Hope no one minds if I drag up this thread - the kind of community/sociology of fanfiction norms are terribly interesting to me.
I know exactly what you mean: many of my often occurring fanfiction daydreaming had me put many characters in those so-called 'love triangles' that do nothing but make me very very very very very very frustrated into 'actual love triangles' not 'triangles of jealousy, hate, and bitterness'!~ ^_^
Love yourself, you are beautiful!~ ^_^

*Believe in yourself, you can do anything*!~ ^_^

Appreciate every thing, every thing is precious.~
