I can because anyone who knows me on this board know I don't think poorly of every person who is in a fanbase. I'm not naive. I know that not everyone thinks the same or that they are a part of the rabid fanbase quotient I keep talking about. I know some J&M fans or Steve and Kayla fans or whatever aren't cut from the same cloth. I'm more or less generalizing just to make my point.

Glad the topic got back to Ava LOL.
I don't think the character was a waste nor was it stunt casting. Days wanted a story for Steve and Kayla and SN pushed for Tamara to be considered. It wasn't like they dreamed up the role for her.
I think the Ava story was to be nothing more then a strike story but she was liked by the cast and crew and, believe it or not, she was liked by many fans. Plus, she already had many fans to begin with. Where they went wrong though was quickly tying up her current story with Steve and Kayla and not climaxing it properly, meaning they had to backtrack later and attempt to fix it. Plus, the whole father angle wasn't played long enough but I guess with her only being here for 6 months you can't do much. I think Days felt they could convince her to stay if they got her out of the Steve/Kayla thing and she did seem happier and acquired even more fans once tossed in with John and Nicole. I don't expect John and Marlena fans to like her or Steve and Kayla fans (who actually appreciated her acting talent at least) to like the character. That's fine but to call her a waste I just can't agree with. She's a talented actress and somehow the character, despite everything, ended up being pretty good and that says alot as new characters usually take forever to amount to anything on Days. It's a shame she is leaving because she had major potential and the show could use more people outside of the main families as enough incest is going on as it is. I hope she returns someday.
Can you really make a statement about a fanbase like you just did? Not every member of a fanbase thinks the same. Besides, how about the fans who like more than one couple?
