Some Further Thoughts on Realism in Slash|
I hear you on magical realism.
I would think that realism would be highly valued in RPF.
You would think... but sadly, often you'd be very wrong. The divide you describe in this post exists in RPF/RPS just as it does in all other fanfic. I feel like there's a lot of unrealistic hearts and flowers in het RPF in particular, where everything is an easy romance with Prince Charming falling to his knees saying everything that girls who like boys dream of. I prefer realistic, human characters who are often inarticulate, plus some angst.
