How do you (apparently accidentally) manage to write a legitimately interesting hetero romance where the characters have a good solid development of their relationship and bond and don’t adhere to the strict gender roles typically seen in hetero romances… and end up going with the copy paste of every other bland hetero romance instead. Like, how do you fuck up that spectacularly.
A lot of people believe it's a creator's job to adhere to every piece of criticism out there. This idea of consumerism is real selfish, because we all know you can't please everyone (and shouldn't even try). I personally think people need to realize that a creator is not going to try and please everyone, and will mostly do what they do because THEY like it, first and foremost.
