I'm not sure if I expect too much out of a fanfic or if what they give is actually normal. Not counting the very recent dark!fics that I've read, I found that many warnings that are in a fanfic I read (like dub-com, bdsm, mental abuse, torture, dom, sub, etc) are kinda misleading... I read a recent one that had Destiel in a Dom/Sub relationship and people liked it a lot but for me... it was mild as fuck.
I think I expect things to be more hardcore O.o There are some things I can't handle like a major character death (that's part of the main pairing of the fanfic) and have them stay dead and then the other person being alone in their lonely misery, knowing that they'll never see their loved one again, and some very few other things that I can't remember.
But seriously, am I expecting too much or are people too used to mild stuff and they like it?... I recently read a Supernatural dark!fic that had Cas as an evil motherfucker and his violent and erratic behavior in the beginning and middle was awesome, really what I expected. But as the story progressed he kinda lost that and got too soft and even the sex scene wasn't to my liking. Too... nice for that point in the story.
I'm having a craving for dark!fics and I found the serial killer AU ones where our loved characters are crazy killers and maybe have one of them as an FBI agent or a detective chasing them to be lovely. Really crazy. The bloodier the better, blood play included. But when I diverge from there it just... becomes mild...
This is just a rant of my complaining. Please keep in mind that my story The Sand, Our Lives is NOT going to be mild. It's mild now 'cause nothing major is happening (you'll know what I mean if you've read/are reading the story). When shit happens, I will make it bloody, gory, horrifying or I'll die trying.
if you like them then please enjoy future chapters. If you don't then... the fuck are you reading my story for? o.o'
Spoiler for next 2 chapters of "The Sand, Our Lives":
There will be blood rituals, blood play, sex scene between two males, sex slaves acting out their duties, a Demon King will appear and a few new characters will also make themselves appear.
I will only mark the beginning and the ending of the sex scene between the two males. One, because I know some people might want to skip it for their personal reasons, and two, because some people (myself probably included) might want to come back to it.
Anything that you might want to see in the story, be it cute and fluffy or dark and disgusting, please feel free to comment. I always appreciate ideas.
