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.

I think that if you don't like that type of Danny-fic (and I sure don't!), after a while you develop a sixth sense that helps you avoid it (I get very good at spotting them just from the header information) and find the stuff you prefer. Which *is* out there. Though, of course, in decreasing quantities these days. But, I sympathize. Because it's really depressing when you're in the mood for the kind of fic that *you* want, and all you can find is stuff that makes you question the way your brain is wired (... or, alternatively, the way the brains of the people who write/like it are wired...).

Generally, I know where to avoid what I don't like. You get used to it after awhile. Though, trying to find places where there is stuff that I *do* like...now, that's a different story.

Mind you, I have complaints for fic regarding all the characters. Daniel is my punching bag today.

*punches him some more*

It's just that sometimes you have a hankering for a certain kind of fic and when you can't find it...argh ;)
