[up][up]To be quite honest, there's a market for what he writes too. We don't need to like them, but they're out there.

Some of them are even semi-respectable, like James Patterson.

Generally speaking, yes, I agree. One must be confident that the things one writes is, if not necessarily good on its face (no need for narcissism), then at least possesses the reasonable possibility of being executed effectively.

When history changes...
I don't get it. Are stories about women going insane and killing people all that common? Would swapping the gender around be a meaningful subversion? This baffles me.

[up] It makes sense if you're familiar with dragonzordablahblah and his apparent fetish for writing about women going insane and killing things and the trauma they go through.

Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion. I shall watch down from the goon heavens.

I mean, I'm separating whether a premise is feasible from the warped worldview of the writer itself.

wild mass guess Maybe Dragon was exposed to some Ludovico Technique variant in which Elfen Lied is played ad nauseum until the subject starts believing that this is the only form of entertainment there is. wild mass guess

"Familiar" is a bad horrible word for that.

The point is if the writer can't have confidence in himself to decide his own setting, then not much can be done.

If he just thinks a blatant gender flip suddenly makes all of that 'okay' somehow, though, then thats wrong. Not that he doesn't have the right to write fucked up shit, but being Equal Oppurtunity Evil doesn't make it any less fucked up, especially if its token.

Well, no.

The question has been answered, and as amusing as y'all may find it to take jabs at the OP, That's not what we provide these forums for.
