< Tongue in cheek > I sometimes find myself patronizingly befuddled at people who feel the need to write fan fiction AU's. What's the matter, you can't find a way to work whatever you need to see around the canonical narrative? After all, most narratives, especially in film and television, are open to some play of interpretation (I would consider most slash writing a play of interpretation, for example, rather than an AU).

And why do you need to see certain things so badly? It's the writer(s) story, after all, not yours. S/he/they owe you nothing. Find a story that works better for you. There's a universe of them.

Believe me, I understand the feeling of disappointment after you've invested emotionally in a story and it veers wildly askew of what you wanted to see. Witness Angel season four Congel, for example (Or don't. *Cringe*). Okay, they managed to patch some of that up in Season 5. And it's possible if they hadn't, I would have had to forget that show even existed. Which would have been a shame. But I wouldn't have written an AU. Got no use for them.

Except for what supposedly happened to Richie in Highlander. I know for a fact that never actually happened. He's in Nepal as we speak. Duncan was so relieved when he found out. </ Tongue in cheek >
