When reading about artistic license on a page, keep in mind that TropesAreNotBad. Someone listing an event of artistic license does not mean the work or use of this trope was bad. Pointing out artistic license is not bad-mouthing a work. If an entry seems especially snarky about it, YouCouldAlwaysEditItYourself, making it a little less snarky.

However, this is a double-edged sword. For the license to work, the story has to be good. A bad story will often look worse for its inaccuracies. There isn't a complete consensus, of course, about which stories are on the right or wrong side of SturgeonsLaw.

SturgeonsLaw. Another major downside is that this trope often used negatively in an AuthorTract, usually to construct a StrawCharacter or deliver a [[StrawmanFallacy straw argument in favor of, or against, something]].

Telling a good story is what is most important in fiction[[note]] (unless you're [[{{Postmodernism}} PoMo]] in which case storytelling also can also take a back seat to playing semiotic language games)[[/note]]. Plus, whoever first said "truth is stranger than fiction" didn't know what they were talking about.[[note]]It's actually the first part of a longer quote by MarkTwain; the full quote is, "Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't."[[/note]] If some things have to be fudged for the sake of a good story, then they will be fudged. If things have to be sped up to stay interesting, they will be. These are changes to ensure EmotionalTorque.
