Everything that you listed bothers me. I wish that you could have added an "all of the above" choice. But that's just me.

Barts dino dick.
That was the most messed up fan fic I've Read. (I don't really read that much. But this was so funny im still laughing about it.).
Im a big fan of young justice and my friend is a doosh so he sent me a link to a fan fic about a yaoi pairing called bluepulse.
Even if you dont like yaoi this is hilarious.
Though I worn u its slightly mature (kwim)
But if u value your sanity dont read...…

hmm.. OOC (its annoying); grammar and spelling errors abound (i'm a bit of a hypocrite that way, as im not very good at spelling and grammar, but I cant stand reading the stuff f it isn't done properly.); and mary-sues make the reading difficult and irritating (I usually quit early); m-preg isn't too bad, as long as it is believable, not like 'they had sex and somehow he magicly grew a uterus and a vagina and popped out a baby nine months later', either there has to be established gender differences (like males that can bear young-for whatever reason, or gender neutralities that make bearing young possible for males or race differences in the gender-matters) whatever the reason may be, make it believable. oh, and I kind of like gender bending, its funny, and you can make the characters do all sorts of funny shit without it being really OOC

I hate gary sues and mary sues,
bad grammar
I tend to like some OOC-ish although some people tend to overdo it.There are some who do the vampire fic okay but otherwise ...(DEATH TO VAMPIRE! ESPECIALLY TWILIGHT! *shudders* oh the glitter...)
Never read Mpreg ( thank God!)
Genderbending is okay once its done well.
I absolutely HATE people inserting characters or themselves to have relationships with important characters, its sicking!
I trully have kudos to those who pulled that one off without making someone feel like strangling the author...

Seriously, you like a character because he's a guy and then POOF! You are magically pregnant!
It pisses me off, because I think I could bear with it if it's descripted as to WHY. But... My biological part of the brain tells me NOO! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE, GO AWAYYY! :D

To me its awful grammar, OCC characters, some fanfictions crossovers, gratuitous character bashing, emotional Mary sues that cries a lot, songfiction, fan girl ocs with superpowers, oc characters with ridicules tragic past, ANYTHING doing related to Opitmus Prime's long lost daughter, and unjustified crack..

I especially hate overly emotional human mary sue female ocs that are overpower, stupid, have emotional problem (like crying and spazzing alot), have a traumatic past, and always butting into everyone lives. Many of them claiming the secret lost daughter of a cannon character! Any character like that destroys a good fan fiction.

Sure, grammars bad when you can't even read it, and gender bending is awkward (but fun) when it's not all of the characters, the worst is OOCs. It makes me wonder whether they even know what they're writing about.

ALL of these things. :iconmegustaplz: I really can't stand bad grammar and when they constantly make characters OOC. I can almost live with Mary/Gary Sues. There's no excuse for bad grammar. A few mistakes are one thing. But when everything is a huge run-on sentence and there's no capitals or periods or commas anywhere, I can't even TRY to read it. And OOC...well, sometimes it happens by accident. But complete turnarounds, I can't handle. I don't even like Shattered Glass. In my opinion, if you're going to manipulate a character that much, you should give it a different name and color scheme and make it an OC. To me, the golden rule of fanfiction is that you're using someone else's characters, so you'd better keep them in character.

Also, Mpreg just confuses me. Especially Transformers.
Oh, and I hate it when people write Transformers smut and they all have human parts. I mean, it just doesn't make SENSE. :icontearmyhairoutplz:

Sometimes genderbending can be amusing, if it's done right.

And none of that "I'll make them vampires/cowboys/Beanie Babies/Norse gods" stuff. Sometimes the art can be interesting, but for the most part the fanfictions end up badly written and don't make sense.

Mpreg, Mary Sues, terrible grammar... and COMPLETE OOCness! :iconcryforeverplz: :iconlazycryplz:

Brenniven Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
I hate all of them. Except for the Naruto one. :I Some of them are really good, especially with all the childhoods and depressing stuff in their backgrounds. Vampire...meh. I only hated them because of twilight. Buuuuuut. Some stories like The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod make it nice again(: and Adventure Time! late reply.
NomDeNom Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Hm.. this poll is old. Oh well. I'll post anyway :D

Not exactly bad grammar, but bad... writing, I guess? Like when "ice blue" eyes becomes "sapphire blue" eyes a chapter later. They're different colours! *rages*
Marytott Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
I hate gender bending, out of character and gary/mary stu/sues! SO ANNOYING!!!

btw, anyone have a good fanfic I can read?
Brenniven Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
There's a bunch on
If you've got a particular fandom, if I know it I can suggest to you some!(:
Marytott Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
I like Harry P/Draco and L/Light the most :3 I know, classic, right?
Brenniven Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
Oh...I'll get back to you on that.
I read more Mello/Matt and Naruto, haha.
I'm not really a fan of HP, though.
Marytott Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
Haha, okay, I'll find something on my own then :) I like Mello/Matt too, I had kinda forgotten about them xd
Brenniven Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
Augghh! sorry I just looked for them! Here they are(: I'll give each a mini summary so you can see if you're interested or not.

SASUNARU: both are paired up to be parents for a class project.

SASUNARU: pretty hardcore here...basically pwp


SASUNARU: naruto is abused. sasuke is the bully. both fight it out and eventually learn of each other.

SASUNARU: AU tsunade thinks both boys need to stop fighting. waht better method than to bring them in for some therapy sessions with therpist kakashi?

SASUNARU: my favorite sasunaru. Naruto, an orphan who is a servant that lives with Sakura. He gets abused. When Sasuke comes, can he free Naruto of his horrible life? Or will Naruto die at the hands of Sakura's parents?

MATT/MELLO: the cutest collection of drabbles for matt/mello ever. yes, it's got ALOT of chapters, but most of them are just a couple paragraphs long.

Hope this helped, I chose my favorites! I'm more of a SasoDei fan. Or mainly any Akatsuki pairings, haha. And KakaIruYama!(:
Marytott Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
Thanks, I'll check them out some time, aka, next week when I have time ^^'
Brenniven Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
You're welcome(:
Most of them are really long, just a headsup!
Snowfest Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011  Student Digital Artist
ugh all of them, I've read a lot of fanfics, I personally think its better than doujinshis (i'm a yaoi fan) but what bothers me the most are (STUPID) Alternate Universes and the OOCness :iconwtfmikuplz:

I hate it all.

But I voted anyway. Took a while, to pick but I went with M Preg.
GoosePeelings Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011
I kind of like those all... but terrible grammar, I didn't see it O.O
Hellsamess Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011
I voted for "Other"
As in: All of the above (give or take Mpreg, depends on the writer. I know only two who can pull that off)
Black-Richa Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
Vampires where not remotely part of story :icondestroyplz:
Mpreg :wtf:
and OOC :iconheadacheplz: (unless it's a humor, then it's permitted, cuz, that's kinda the point :D )
FireBulletz Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Orz, what's an mpreg? I choose all the rest except it, I don't know what it is :/
Seriously though, people make fanfics with characters as Twilight vampires?
xXxBloody-HeartxXx Featured By Owner May 3, 2011
Mpreg is short for "male pregnancy."
FireBulletz Featured By Owner May 22, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
What the fuuuuuck XD How is that even physically possible? Oh wait. Fanfiction. :iconwthplz:

The Sues and grammar!! I can't stand predictable/generic stuff!!
XxmyemptysoulxX Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011  Student General Artist
Mpreg will ALWAYS be the fastest way to get me running away from even my most favorite of pairings. Even if the plot is decent. But then again, bad grammar is close at its heels. Don't get me wrong though, I love Yaoi but that imo is takin' it too far.

i must agree with the vampire one even though i voted other. along with Freddy Kurger romance, and Jason Vorhees. i dont even know why i watched that crap in the first place.
Bubblecat Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Oh god. Sorry. I just clicked on the Aizen option because I read it as "Aizen running around". Didn't read the rest of it! :iconhurrrplz:

But honetly, it's the worst scenario for me because that dude doesn't run anywhere! He swaggers! :icondivaplz:
Bahamut285 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
1. Fics that have Self-Insert characters that make their main love interest become OoC when they allegedly "fall in love"

2. Pairings that make no sense, crossovers or no. I've seen some AMAZING crossovers, but 99% of the stuff on is pure garbage

3. Yaoi pairings that stem off of the fact that people are lead to believe that two guys cannot have a friendship (or rivalry) without being MEGAGHEY for each other.

4. Yaoi pairings that people claim as canon when one or both of the males express interest in A GIRL, and said girl is conveniently killed off in the first chapter (or in the freaking prologue), and another male friend to comfort the main character = immediate gay sex

5. Mary-sues in some sort of reverse harem situation (i.e. Fruits-basket) with ALL of the author's favourite characters.

6. Repeated, uncorrected grammar and spelling mistakes. Idiotic, unnecessary and FREQUENTLY WRONG usage of Japanese words in an ENGLISH fanfiction. I don't want to see shit like: "Naruto, you saved me, arigatou." There are also one or two comics on deviantArt I found in which the person used male speech patterns for a girl, tomboy or not, she talked like the goddamn Yakuza and was being "playfully rude" with friends and superiors.
k-k-katie Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
While I'm reading I get SO ticked when you find out that the fanfic author/writer continuously repeat grammar/spelling mistakes. It's as if they don't know how to spell or use grammar, and they don't even bother fix it.
But I have a perfectionist/professional persona, so...
Truebladed Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I picked bad grammar. It's no use if the story is well written if you can't read what the hell they wrote.
