If you take a look at any fan fiction written by diehard fans of any couple or character, guess what you’ll find? The exact same thing! Trying to lay that solely at the feet of J&M fans is freakin’ hilarious. If I go to a site that in it’s heading states that it features fan fiction for a particular couple or character any reasonable person would expect to find most of the fiction there that centers around the said character or couple. Trying to lump “character/couple” fan fiction in with “general” fan fictions is like trying to compare apples and oranges. And guess what? Those “general” fan fictions more often than not aren't so pristine. More often than not, it quickly becomes apparent which characters the author favors and which ones they don’t, all under the guise of being “general”.
Funny, that most of J&M fan fiction I’ve read wouldn’t break the budget. There aren’t any big explosions, special effects or location shoots required. The stories are primarily character driven and are about interactions. Any “limitations” you claim could easily be reworked by a writer worth their salt. Having been a writer now for many years I find that it makes it much easier to detect a poser, they stand out like glaring, sore thumbs.
