Emotional Attachment & Smutty Fic

We discussed this on IM last night, and thought it was worth throwing out for conversation.  My musing is such: I've bought and read some of those 'erotica anthologies', and for the most part, they bore me to tears. So I've been wondering if there's a component of having an attachment to a character that adds to the enjoyment of such fic. As in: I find I enjoy 'adult' fanfic with a character I know and care about more than the 'professional' sorts of stories found in published anthologies. With many of those, it's virtually nameless and faceless and I just don't care enough about the participants for the story to be satisfying on any level.  Obviously, there are exceptions. but generally speaking that seems to be the pattern.

Thoughts?

And here's hoping the other participants of last night's conversation share their thoughts.

Not Quite So Bad This Time

I finally rewatched the season ender of Grey's Anatomy since I've been feeling the urge to write the fic I wanted to write when it first aired. But at the time, I was working on other stories, so I put it off. I swore I wouldn't cry this time. Yeah, right! But at least I didn't sob myself into a little puddle like the first time around! Still, when Alex picks Izzy up from Denny's side, I was a sniffling fool. [sigh] I loved Denny. He's the main reason I stated watching Supernatural - or at least, the actor who plays him.

Anyway, my memory is refreshed, and for those of you who have really wanted Emily and Methos to get back together, you may get your wish. At least for now. You know what I'm like. I'm a fickle Cupid. And I like it!

A few minutes later: just realized that the music playing, 'Evanescence - Anywhere', is perfect for this story. Have I mentioned how much I love Evanescence?
