Follow TV Tropes
I almost feel like this article is slanted in the direction of thinking that most if not all of these types of fanfiction are poorly contrived excuses to combine fluff with "the feels". Maybe it's just because I can already think of a certain case where the ending of the series was just asking for one of these thanks to a healthy dose of Fridge Horror.
I know there's a way to do this trope well, but what if you combined it with Rule of Funny (if the "comforter" isn't really good at "comforting", for example), or Rule of Drama (i.e. the entire setting becomes Darker and Edgier once the "hurt" person snaps).
