ETA: Crossposted to DW; comment here or there.

I've read two comments in the past twelve hours of this nature, and so I need to respond. Comments in question:

"I generally avoid any fanfic with trans characters, because people suck at writing them."

"This is the first fic I've read dealing with transgenderism that is accurate and non-offensive."


There are some implications here that sadden me, gotta admit.

One, this explains why no one on my flist ever reads my transfic. (Any transfic? Really? You're missing out! Want recs? I have recs aplenty!) 

Two, OH GOD AM I DOING IT WRONG? D:

For what it's worth, you guys, I don't think I'm doing it wrong. :/ And if I am, please comment and tell me so, so I can stop. And if I'm not, please comment and tell me so, so I can not stop because I feel bad about comments like these. OK?

Tl;dr: Not all transfic is bad! I don't know where you folks have gotten this impression, but I promise it's mistaken. And I'd like to hope mine aren't one of the exceptions that make that particular rule.

I just read your whole Sam I Am verse . For the second time. Then came to peak at the rest of your journal and saw this.
YOU'RE NOT DOING IT WRONG!
It's perfect and needs to be about 500 drabbles longer.

Wow, thank you! I'm so glad to hear I'm not doing it wrong. And rereads are the ultimate form of flattery.

I'll see what I can do about writing some more once I can drag myself away from Inception fandom long enough to catch up on Supernatural.
