Once again, I got some spare time, so I grabbed few pencils and my new graphic tablet and dived into Glee fanart. So much fun. I’m working on Quinntana right now :)
I’ve noticed (and it’s not just in the last days) that readers from the Glee fandom don’t read het fanfiction much. At least czeach readers. I know just few het stories and not many people read them. And what surprised me even more is that not many people read femshlash. I would love to read some femslash fanfiction in czech but almost noone writes it. There is few Faberry fics and I have read most of them, even though I’m not a big fan of them. Faberry is the only femslash couple people write about in czech. It’s really sad. I’m the only writer who write Brittana but the stories are still mostly about Santana and I would love so much to actually read some good Brittana in czech. And I’m not even talking about NC-17 stories. NC-17 femslesh doesn’t exist in czech fanfiction. And I’m asking why? Why don’t people write it? And why are readers not interested in reading those stories? I saw it when I wrote that Quinntana PWP. Not many people read it. And if they did, they didn’t leave a comment so I have no idea if the story was bad or if they just don’t wanna read femslash. Everyone reads slash. We can find mostly slash fanfiction in czech (and also slovak) fandom. Why? Why is it more interesting for readers then femslash or het fanfiction?
That’s pretty simple. Readers of slash are straight girls and they are not attracted to other girls or lesbian sex, don’t you think? :-)
Personally, I like Brittana, but I don’t absolutely adore it. I don’t like the way the couple was treated on the show (same as Finchel, Klaine, Fuinn… all wrong). Hell, I don’t even like how they treated Santana’s sexuality and I still got some troubles believe she’s a dyke. But it’s still the only girl/girl couple on Glee, so there are no other options then to ship Brittana, are there (sigh).
My OTP is still Quintana, because it’s something different. I believe there could be a massive piece of an interesting story behind Santana and Quinn falling in love with each other. I see Quinn as a girl with an undefined sexuality (don’t ask why, I just do), also as a woman who is very thoughtful, loving and caring. Santana and Quinn would grow a lot as persons if they were together. I like it complicated, but Glee doesn’t go with complicated couples. The more I think about it, the more I want to write a story about them, but I’m soooo over fanfiction. It is like a terrible waste of time for me. Reading fanfiction is also a thing I do just rarely. Recommendations from my friends are always useful, because fanfiction.net is too much of a time-eater. I scouted through Czech fanfiction, but to be honest, most of it was so poorly written I gave up completely.
