I have been reading Alias fan fiction lately. There is some really good fiction, mind you but something that this fandom lacks is the "taboo" factor.
I am talking those topics that are not the norm. For instance, apocalypse fiction, inappropriate pairing fiction, sexually uninhibited fiction (rape, incest, pedo, beastality, etc.), other?
Its possible that I am not looking in the right places. After all I am fairly new to this fandom. I have tried to tap on all the big reservoirs (FF.net,SD1,ALLALIAS) and based on what I've found there, I am making my judgement.
Granted, it is morbid to want taboo topics as some of them are clearly reaching TMI/pervert level. I should think that such topics would be that much harder to write for the authors and demand some serious writing prowess by them.
I like straight/gen fiction in fandom but even I can admit that some of the best fiction I've read is slash! (Of course I have no scientific means to prove it but generally slash fic is better written. Which gives some people a god!complex but lets not get into that for now.
Question of the day:
Is there any topic in fiction that you find/found really disturbing?
And one for the authors on my flist:
What is the one taboo topic you wish you could write?

I don't observe but a very happy belated easter to all the people on my flist whom do.
I have been particularly busy this weekend because I had a couple of projects to work on and I was invited to an easter thing. Its been a nice weekend so far.
Also I finally got to watch some movies this weekend. Juno was my favourite. More on this later.
