to me it happened nearly the same but with the naruto fics.
I just wanted a good fic where naruto stopped being a beta bitch, I just wanted him to mature, grow up and see bullshit were it is.
for him to see that there is more to life than just trying to get loved by people who doesn't respect you no matter what you do.
like he got treated like shit and I expected naruto to actually see that there is no use and actually be free or something.
in fact one of the main problems with naruto is that it never stopped being a literal "virgin vs chad".
I wanted so much for naruto and sasuke to grow up as people and realize that all this nonsense wouldn't take them anywhere and see that there is so much in life that being a damn ninja.
but no...I just got autism and shit.
sasuke nearly always being a edgelord or gay for naruto and some other predictable crap, the same with naruto getting genderbend or that he becomes a lazy asshole to everyone or a damn pussy magnet for no reason at all.
I just wanted progress and true growing up, not autism or stuck in the same predictable thing.
it is so much to ask for some good writefag to write naruto as a boy who grows up and see that there is no point in being hokage, that is not worth it and instead search for what would make him happy out there? or at least make sasuke realize that he is not alone, that he have true loyal friends that will be there and finally get rid of that damn darkness, to simply search for happiness or live freely?.
