Dean Smiles

SG-1 Fic Rant of the Day

Someone please tell me what memo I missed that states that Daniel must be a whiny man-child who can't take care of himself? Or a lonely depressed man that must get away -- far away -- from this cruel world? Hmm?

Why do the majority of the fic that I find out there make him into this man that suffered child-abuse, needs lots of hugs and cuddles, and turns to Jack for EVERYTHING?

Am I missing something where he is always insecure about his place in the world and SG-1? That he has to always run off and hide because no one understands him? And then only through the support of his friends who search endlessly for him and after their impassioned accolades regarding his greatness, does he come back with them?

Once, maybe twice...not so bad.

But every other fanfic?

I obviously missed that memo.
