* The crossover ''Fanfic/ShepherdOfTheStars'' features a lot of Codex entries where the author shows off how much work went into researching the different settings. The author generated randomized tech trees for each faction in the story, tracks what technologies they have researched, and even calculated the composition, armaments, and construction costs of the various fleets that are featured. Considering there are currently ten different factions, this translates to an impressive amount of work.

Added DiffLines:

** She also notably averts ThereAreNoTherapists and turns the story into a four-way crossover [[spoiler: when Blaine gets kidnapped by a StalkerWithACrush ]]. The concussed Blaine needs three weeks of checkups with [[{{Firefly}} Simon Tam]] [[RealityEnsues to make sure he doesn't have brain damage,]] plus therapy with [[GameOfThrones Sansa]] for the huge amount of emotional trauma he's dealing with. [[RealityEnsues Simon ALSO calls]] [[CriminalMinds the Behavioral Analysis Unit]] just to make sure [[spoiler: Blaine's stalker didn't sexually assault him while he was incoherent and unable to remember anything.]]

* Half of ''FanFic/HuntingTheUnicorn'' is a CerebusRetcon of [[{{Glee}} Blaine's]] RelationshipSue and KnightInShiningArmor portrayal. The other half is [[DeconstructionFic showing what it would take to produce someone like Blaine.]] Given that the author is studying psychology and read up on medieval chivalry, it isn't surprising that some readers find it so believable.
